Harry Reid, you remember him, he is a badass. Alan Grayson, you remember him too, he's that guy who talked a lot of shit about George W. Bush so we all laughed our asses off and thought he was pretty cool! But you know who does NOT like Harry Reid and Alan Grayson? Harry Reid and Alan Grayson, but opposite. Like, we are pretty sure Harry Reid likes Harry Reid, and Alan Grayson likes Alan Grayson, but BOY HOWDY they do not like EACH OTHER, and they are going in meetings and puffing out their chests like 17-year-old boys who just got that first sweet hit of testosterone that makes them want to chest bump their moms, and also Alan Grayson has some shady ethical shit going down with some Cayman hedge funds and Harry Reid is like DROP YOUR SENATE BID, SHADESTER, THERE IS NO ROOM FOR YOU ACTING LIKE A COMMON DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ, and Alan Grayson LITERALLY DIRECT QUOTE (and not like our usual "direct quote" when we say a joke but an ACTUAL direct quote) telling Harry Reid "SAY MY NAME." And Harry Reid probably doing that thing cool black guys and Hillary Clinton do where they wipe the dandruff off their shoulders, because that dandruff IS YOU. (Or Alan Grayson. You know what I mean. OR DO YOU?)

Okay, let's get up in this shit.

Here is how the aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity, described the exchange:

Grayson says, ‘Do you know who I am?’

Reid says, ‘Yeah, I do.’

He says, ‘Say my name. I want you to say my name.’

Keith [Ellison] interjects at this point and asks what he [Grayson] is doing. ‘If you have a real question ask it?’

Grayson says, ‘I haven’t heard Reid say my name. Say it.’

Other members interject and say, ‘If you don’t have a point move on.’

Grayson takes out a piece of paper, says ‘I want to read the things he has said about me.’ He goes through this list about the Cayman Islands and hedge funds and says, ‘These are false, and I want to know why you said it.’

Reid says, ‘It is true and I want you to lose.’

Are you guys feeling tingly in your genitals? ME TOO! So what's this about Alan Grayson's Cayman Island hedge funds? Well, apparently Alan Grayson has a whole bunch of Cayman Island hedge funds! Like "Grayson Financial Or Whatever" and "I Am A Fucking Walking Panama Papers Villain, INC LLC TM COPYRIGHT."

So that's everything you need to know about that!

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
