In spite of failing the job interview, I mean who gets hysterical and still gets the job?

As a civilian spectator, a couple of things. Yes, a 5-4 decision for Trump. Predicting how the associate justices will vote can go awry; however, this has been more predictable recently. I offer Bush v. Gore as an example. The days of a spoiler like Souter have long passed.

During this tawdry time, I recall the New Yorker used the word β€˜cunt’ in an article.

He'll have to be on house arrest for the rest of his "life".

They also don't want to be plainly guilty of contempt, when they can count on Bill Barr ignoring it only for another few months. (SCOTUS decision at end of June, and Biden taking over six months later.)

There's zero chance the fucker didn't cheat on his taxes, and it would be nice to see him nailed for tax evasion and face massive penalties that leave him dead broke.

Thanks so much for covering this story. The circumstances of life on a reservation make this pandemic even more frightening to North America's tribes. With so many living in family groups it's easy to spread virus to multiple generations. Also families are located over such a large landmass they often live in food deserts and other necessary activities require an unusual amount of travel. Other than knowing Republicans are trying to make it hard for the Sioux to vote, I don't know enough about how to help them.Being an Arizona resident, though, I do know two very respectable places you could donate if you are moved to help Navajos and/or Hopis with their pandemic-related issues,The Navajo and Hopi Families Relief Fund is a well-established Go Fund Me that has been successfully delivering food packages, especially directed to elders, disabled people, mothers with small children who live in remote areas of Utah tribal lands. Young residents of the nations with pick-up trucks deliver the much-appreciated food gifts.https://www.gofundme.com/f/...The Official Navajo Nation COVID-19 Relief Fund is designed to coordinate gifts both monetary and non-monetary. The Nation has been hit harder than any other group in Arizona; during April coronavirus spread through the reservation as fast as it did in New York City. The tribe is devastated with needs. They're happy to have money but if you run a company that can donate hard goods that can be arranged through the Relief Fund which is also being assisted by the Arizona Democratic Party.https://www.nndoh.org/donat...Thanks for considering our sisters and brothers on the reservations.

Read one here, listened to the other, with the mute button handy, but frankly except for Rand, everybody seemed genuinely interested in actually getting information. The Dems were actually the ones doing most of the grandstanding and "getting it into the Congressional record" kinda stuff.

When you hang a lawyer to roast over open flames, what kind of rope is best? (AFF)

Or as Groucho Marx said. Those are my principles. If you don't like them I have others.

Holy shit, Kavanaugh! 😳 My god, if this were a play he’d get the most incredible comeuppance. 😌

He's also a cuckold.

Let's say Drumpf wins this case, but loses the presidency. After he leaves the White House, he can no longer claim PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT, and his financial records are no longer safe, right?

Yeah, it is a very common kink. I have a friend that is a professional dominatrix and one of her "classes that she teaches" is cuckolding.
