Love your quote, Janet. I do wish they would have spelled your name Janet Shazam.
courtroom should be deposition room i guess. I'm not familiar with a "deposition" room. I have seen the inside of a few courtrooms in my day. Those I am familiar with.
Deb: I can't imagine making such an announcement in the middle of any professional setting, much less one involving Donald Trump. Unless one might think getting Trump to lose his shit in the courtroom was a winning strategy worthy of such a stunt? I mean, we're talking about a lawyer here... Although.....from a CNN article: Beck insisted that the breast-pumping break was set to coincide with a pre-scheduled lunch break at 12:30, but that Trump decided at the last minute he did not want a break. An email exchange between Beck and a law firm representing Trump shows a lunch order was made and set to arrive around noon. But it also says she was setting up shop right there in the courtroom . . . she was not asking to be excused. Garten, executive vice president and general counsel at The Trump Organization, said Trump called Beck "disgusting" because she was about to use her breast pump in the middle of the deposition room. "She was disgusting," Garten said in a phone interview with CNN. "She was attempting to breast feed -- to pump in the middle of a deposition, in a deposition room with five lawyers and was not excusing herself." Garten said Beck started to assemble the pump in the deposition room and "started to move the breast pump toward her breast." He claimed Beck orchestrated the stunt because "she ran out of questions and she didn't know what to do." "This is not about breastfeeding ... it's just not," Garten insisted. I'm going with the stunt theory...
Er, Ig - unless I'm missing something, your 2:31 link is about Lindsey, written by "NRO Staff".

http://hotair.com/headlines/archives/2015/07/29/walker-that-trump-sounds-kind-of-like-a-democrat-doesnt-he/ Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker pushed back against attacks leveled at him in recent days by Donald Trump, saying the billionaire is using Democratic attacks to try to throw him off stride in the Republican presidential nomination race. “He’s using the talking points of the Democrats last year,” the two-term governor said during a happy hour stop Monday in Chicago. “The public in my state reelected me for the third time in four years because they realized those talking points were not the facts.”

Miss Marple: And I retract my objection to using her first name. It seems to have been the right choice for her to do so, and I need to get over my old-fashioned thinking in some areas. Next up: tattoos and piercings!!!

Trump is a uuuuuge fan of the Huntress: Does Donald Trump like Sarah Palin? You betcha. The Republican frontrunner for president said he would definitely consider the former VP candidate for a cabinet position on Monday, telling a radio host that Palin is a “special person” who “knows what’s happening.” Trump added that “everybody loves” Palin and that voters recognize her strength, which “you just don’t see very much of it anymore.” He said he admires the former Alaska Governor because she “took so much nonsense — lies and disgusting lies,” adding she handled the incoming criticism well. Hmmmmmm, interesting play when you think about Trump support in the moderate and kiddy cohorts.

TM: Hint to self: "Median" doesn't mean "mean". I take hitting the "median" to "mean" one is a bad driver.

Jane: I agree with you about Trump. The fanfare reminds me of Obama's rise in 2008 - which is depressing as hell. Thank you for saying that. For whatever good he causes by raising the issue of illegal immigration, I think Trump causes more harm by sucking in people of goodwill to support him. Trump is a catastrophe. Sure, use him to push an issue he raised that otherwise would have gone unmentioned. BUT IT'S THE ISSUE NOT THE PERSON. Maybe it's a function of human nature I am very slow to accept....the person who raises the issue I care about must be infallible or something. I DON'T GET IT. Let me put it another way: Trump is a schmuck. (he won't embrace any other issue i care about ever for any reason ever)

jimmy: I don't happen to think the anti-trade stuff ("tax GM if they build cars in Mexico") thing is good policy, though I understand it may be good politics. Word. If all one cares about is politics - then Trump has sniffed out the way to make one care. If one is so easily led.

squaredance: Trump is speaking to it, and it is not a cynical ploy by him either. Oh, I think I may have promised myself at some point to never go full squaredance, but if so I'm breaking it now. It most certainly is a cynical ploy by Trump. And those taken in are the worst of the naive. Sorry, squaredance . . . Trump is not looking out for you at all. Not in the slightest. (unless you are a Trump investor . . . he might be looking out for you then). Oh, and I watched his whole IA speech yesterday. Smooth. Smooth enough to reel in the gullible if you ask me. Your statement rates high on the scale of the most naive statements ever made on JOM. You must not really be steeped in history to have made it. You are a fool. You are historically illiterate. (heh, those last parts were just me going full-squaredance)

I just can't get my mind around people who are self-declaredly so anti-RINO thinking Trump isn't the dictionary definition of RINO. I'm sorry, if I wasn't clear enough: Donald Trump is the very definition of RINO. We are very close to developing the "anti-RINO in Name Only" class of people. Trump does not have a bone in his body that wants to shrink the federal government in terms of power or money. Every bone in his body tells him that he could harness it - even if it meant increasing the power and money - to do what he thinks is best (first for Trump, and yeah, the country could maybe also benefit too). He should be opposed on principle and ideology. Yet anyone who tries is declared GOPe without any thought whatsoever as to the actual arguments. This will not end well.

Sure, Ig - some Walker fundraiser guy "started" it in some email. No, but seriously, imagine President Trump........... Aide: "We need to go down to the situation room about the latest ISIS bombing" Trump: "Not now! Somebody on the internet just insulted me!!!!! He's gonna wish he'd never been born after I'm done tweeting...."

CH: the only member of Team Willard that seemed to understand that you win by confronting your ideological opponents rather than playing nice nice with them. But Perry was wrong in taking on Trump from an ideological perspective? He should have played nice nice with him? There are tactics and strategy, to be sure. I'm not sure we all understand the difference when we start throwing around jabs about candidates doing this or that. I mean, I really thought that JOM would be a fertile ground for discussing how Trump went after Walker yesterday. But no one really seemed interested. Trump Good. Walker Good. Trump attacks Walker. No discussion.

Well, ok. The CNN/ORC poll also found that 15 percent want Trump to run as a third-party candidate, something the billionaire businessman has threatened to do if the Republican National Committee, which has urged Trump to tone down his rhetoric, does not treat him fairly. How many of that 15% are Dems wanting him to run solely to provide interference for Hillary? If I was giving answers to a poll and there was a question about Bernie Sanders running as an independent, I'd say hell yes.

clarice: *JeFF*, not Jess- We have a new bartender at my pool hall. Poised, confidence, athlete, you know, the whole package. Anyway, when she told me her name, Jess, I responded - because I am the dork that I am - that if she spelled her name with a long s it would look just like mine. She sometimes under-counts the number of beers I have. We've never spoken about it, it just happens. Whether causation is involved or it is just a mere happy correlation, I shall leave for the fair reader to determine.
