You know what’s surprising (but actually, now that we think about it, is completely expected) is that a lawmaker who is doing everything he can to make abortions illegal has “never thought about” why a woman would have an abortion. He's not a woman, after all! How would he know what he thinks about something like that? It's because of er -- economic -- well, he's just not sure, darn it, because he's never thought about it, now that you mention it.

After an Al Jazeera reporter asked [Ohio State Representative Jim] Buchy why he thinks some women may want to have an abortion, he fumbled for an appropriate response before admitting he had never thought about that question before.

BUCHY: Well, there’s probably a lot of — I’m not a woman so I’m thinking, if I’m a woman, why would I want to get — some of it has to do with economics. A lot has to do with economics. I don’t know, I have never — It’s a question I have never thought about.

Jim Buchy, in case you don't already know him, has voted to prohibit insurance coverage of abortion, to prohibit abortion in the event that a fetal heartbeat is detectable (with exceptions for "medical emergencies" that "endanger the life or major bodily function of a pregnant woman"), and to prohibit abortion after 20 weeks (unless there is one of those aforementioned "medical emergencies.")

BONESAW WEEK WILL NEVER END! It's like Infrastructure Week, only stuff actually happens. And the stuff is all horrible! This morning, Saudi authorities indicted 11 suspects in the October killing of Jamal Khashoggi, announcing their intention to execute five of them. Despite copious evidence that the killing in the Turkish consulate was ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, lackeys are going to take the fall -- with their heads. And the US Treasury Department dutifully responded by imposing sanctions on 17 Saudis "involved in the abhorrent killing" of a legal US resident who was in the process of applying for citizenship. So, we're good now, yes? We can go back to selling them murder machines to kill Yemeni civilians?

And then SHIT GOT WEIRD.

NBC reports that the Trump administration is so desperate to resume normal relations with Jared Kushner's BFF MBS that they're trying to trade 77-year-old cleric Fetullah Gülen -- a lawful resident of Pennsylvania for 20 years -- to the Turkish government in exchange for them dropping the inquiry into the Khashoggi murder.
