In the "we're not the only crazy people on the planet these days" department is news that UK pizzas will have a government-mandated maximum caloric content. No word yet on whether an actual nanny will show up to smack the hand of someone reaching for a second slice. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/10/11/pizzas-must-shrink-lose-toppings-government-anti-obesity-plan/

Which one said that, Hillary, or Christianne Amonpour? I think it's Jews who Amanpour refuses to be civil with.

CH, that Ace poster JackStraw needs to come over here; I think I could figure out what he's talking about if I read him daily for a couple of years. Right now, I'm completely stumped by the news that Ivanka and Jared's good friend Dasha Zhukova lives in the NYC mansion belonging to her ex-husband Roman Abramovich, a former associate of Manafort, which was seized yesterday by the FBI. Not sure I understand how that can be a good thing for Trump, but I'm more of a 1D checkers player (chess is hard). https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6252533/US-seize-Russian-oligarch-Deripaskas-42-5million-New-York-mansion-hes-sanctioned-bribery.html

He went on & on beating on my car & yelling. Are you sure he didn't want you to back up because you were on his foot? Kidding aside, that's awful - people are crazy.

When I was a kid, Hoffa would come to my folks house to play bridge. Alright, I'm kidding, I just wanted to fit in.

How he hasn't hastily seemed to age... I read your first iteration a few times, thinking "huh?". Yep, Trump looks and sounds great, he completely breaks the mold. Twelve more years, twelve more years!

I think it's less than 50-50 that the Dems take the house. There's not enough polling done, and the polls that are done can't be trusted. Republicans are much more reliable midterm voters than Dems. Blacks are feeling less beholden to the Dems than they have in 75 years. Trump will be on the stump almost daily, and that's powerful. I'll guess right now and bookmark this so that I can (at least in my dreams) come back to exalt in the glory - Dems gain 6 House seats, drop 2 Senate seats.

Here's a good "meme history" on 4D Chess Trump which, I did not know, seems to have originated in Dilbert three years ago: https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/trump-is-playing-4d-chess I'm not sure Trump made any 4D moves to get his nominee through, but he sure comes out a winner in all this. But for standing firm when he needed to, and for showing good discretion in letting the process play out when he needed to do that.

It must be pretty awful to be a Dem right now; just a year ago, things looked pretty good for them. Rex Tillerson was trying to deny he'd called Trump a moron. Everything looked aces with Mueller's investigation, with Manafort about to be indicted and Papadopolous about to plead guilty. A year ago today Trump's approval average at RCP was 39.2%. Dems, a year ago, could imagine the biggest and bluest of waves at election 2018. I'd feel bad for the Dems if I could stop laughing.

Murkowski will vote No because native Americans are upset about prior Kavanaugh rulings, and she's not going to turn back. If it really comes down to Manchin, he'll be a GOP hero and dead to the Dems, almost hard to believe since he's so doggedly stayed Democrat.

I saw a bunch of their tweets yesterday calling him Miss Lindsay and worse. It's not like they stole that from us, or anything. :)

Sue, Garland would likely be no worse than Souter, who GHWB promised would be "a home run for conservatives".

If Trump ever nominated Garland to replace RBG, the left would a) no longer trust Garland and seek to discredit him and b), would never stop screaming about replacing a woman with a yucky white man.

TK, you're saying that there will be no 3d comment on this matter for the Comment Counting Committee to consider? (Be careful, responding could cause a violation)

It wasn’t “mockery” hbox. Well, he didn't imitate Ford's demeanor or voice. But he poked holes in her story simply by repeating the things she's said - and he did it in a humorous way - it comes out funny, and he gets a laugh. The humor, I think, is why the word "mockery" applies; if mockery is "teasing and contemptuous language or behavior directed at a particular person or thing", then Trump used teasing language towards Ford. Which is a good thing, because whoever said it's a sin to make fun of an opponent. Trump is from New York and doesn't care if people think he's mocking someone, that's the world now (and it's a good one).

Nothing crude about it. Agreed, it was incisive mockery; his comments also happen to be what everyone in the country is thinking and saying, and Trump knows he can't lose when math is on his side.

Anything a non-leftist) man does that a leftist woman doesn't like is RAPE!!! No, I don't think that's quite it; I think it should read "anything a white man does is rape". Genetically, a straight white man is an abominable miscreant, and collective justice can't begin soon enough.
