  1. Any chance that Gorsuch becomes this era’s David Souter? (Not saying he will, just wondering.)
  2. Regarding the Mueller testimony, I’m not expecting anything dramatic from him. He’s made clear that he doesn’t want to testify and is being forced to by a subpoena. He also made clear that he’s very reluctant to answer questions outside of the report. What’s most likely is that he’s simply going to answer questions by referencing parts of the report or saying that it’s outside of his investigation. Even that can be useful, but Dems who are expected him to have some drop the mic moment or unload on Trump are probably going to be disappointed. I’m not sure if the Dems are using the standard 5 minute format, but that’s going to make things even worse unless they coordinate very closely on questions. And there’s going to be no end to the grandstanding on both sides. In some ways, I think the most interesting part of the hearing will be Republicans and their questions. I’m not sure having the likes of Gaetz or Jordan trying to take down Mueller is going to end well for them.
  3. Y’know, WTF might be on to something. Trump and Republicans should welcome them to America and offer them a path to citizenship...because according to WTF, they’ll all be voting Republican anyway. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.
  4. Yes, people should stop making Nazi comparisons when they are obviously not appropriate.
  5. Nostradumbazz the hypocrite... US President Donald Trump, in a stunning rebuke of the US intelligence community, declined on Monday to endorse the US government's assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, saying he doesn't "see any reason why" Russia would be responsible. Instead, Trump -- standing alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin -- touted Putin's vigorous denial and pivoted to complaining about the Democratic National Committee's server and missing emails from Hillary Clinton's personal account.
  6. Not to mention the hypocrisy of Nostradumbazz laughing off Trump siding with Saudi’s and Putin over the military and intelligence community regarding Khashogi and 2016 interference.
  7. G Elliott Morris is no joke when it comes to forecasting. I follow him like I follow Nate Silver...which is to say “religiously”.
  8. In fact, I’m changing my catchline now just for @kicker. I’ll now be saying, “that will go over like tomatoes with cheese and some other **** on it”.
  9. I’ll put a good bowl of pho up against some tomatoes with cheese and **** on it any day.
  10. Also known as “tomatoes with cheese and some other **** on it”.
  11. We used to, until all my alt’s got shut down.
  12. Federal prosecutors have accused Rep. Duncan Hunter of improperly using campaign funds to pursue numerous romantic affairs with congressional aides and lobbyists, according to a new court filing late Monday night.
  13. In Georgia, wouldn’t that make him your uncle?
  14. I mean, he’s comparing himself to a guy who got banned from Art Bell’s show...Art Bell of “there are alien ships over the WH tonight” fame. Art freakin’ Bell banned him from his show... In 2002, Kreskin made a prediction that there would be a mass-UFO sighting over Las Vegas on June 6 between the hours of 9:45 PM and midnight that would be witnessed by thousands of people. He also stated that if there were no sighting, he would donate $50,000 to a charity. Hundreds of people camped out that evening yet no sighting occurred. On June 8, Kreskin appeared in the opening segment of the Coast to Coast AM radio show, hosted by Art Bell, to explain what had happened. Bell read Kreskin's press release over the air to the effect that: "the sighting prediction was a total fabrication in order to prove people's susceptibility to suggestion post 9/11". Kreskin claimed he was concerned that a terrorist, with the skills of a mentalist such as himself, could pull a similar stunt involving something much worse. He stated that the predicted sighting was only an "experiment". When asked about the $50,000 donation he previously promoted, Kreskin claimed there was indeed a sighting that night since he said glowing green orbs were supposedly spotted in the sky just before midnight and reported by witnesses after news camera crews had already left the scene. Because of this one reported sighting, Kreskin said his prediction came true anyway and therefore he did not have to pay the money he previously announced. This statement offended Art Bell, who opined that this was merely a publicity stunt on Kreskin's part, and officially banned Kreskin from his show.[10]
  15. Kreskin like, indeed! Old, washed up, and laughably wrong. https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-2008-01-07-0801060115-story.html Nearly four decades after the name Kreskin entered the cultural vernacular, the 72-year-old still performs more than 200 shows a year. He also pops up annually on New Year's Eve news programs to make predictions for the following year. On Dec. 31, 2002, for instance, he predicted on CNN that Rudy Giuliani would run for president in 2008 -- and win.
  16. Thus spoke Nostradumbazz...
  17. Pretty much.
  18. Nostradumbazz also said that Republicans would pick up 4-6 seats in the Senate.
  19. Which it hasn’t and never will. Not the best analogy, don’t you think?
  20. Maybe, but even those reasons aside, I don’t see it going anywhere. He’s talking about just up and eliminating over $1 trillion in debt. And making college free for future students on top of that. It’s just not realistic.
