EvacationGate: Brownback Not High-Falutin', In Fact One Helluva a Guy

He's a slightly nutty intelligent design-spouting, family-values grandstander, but Senator Sam Brownback did not, it turns out, pull a "DYKWIA" at the Capitol evac. Earlier reports had him waving off police pleas to stay back. NOT TRUE. An eyewitness closer to the scene reports:


i was with him throughout the evacuation, because we happened to be leaving the dirksen building at the same time and i wanted to see what he was getting over his blackberry. he absolutely DID NOT give the cops a "don't bother me" wave. he had gotten the all-clear on his blackberry, and the cops offered to take him back into the hart building because he was a senator, but he declined special treatment. then he realized he had an appointment off campus and headed off to it.

in fact, he made me walk farther than union station, where i was originally planning to stay, and then he went to a park that he had designated his staff's meeting point to make sure everyone in his office had gotten out. that's when he got the all-clear on his blackberry.

We admit we're impressed: He's got an evacuation plan and he's just a regular guy. He's totally going to heaven.

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
