Ta, Evan. I weep for the days when Oversight belonged to Carolyn Maloney. Don't get me wrong, Dan Goldman's great. But Oversight used to be great, too.

Don't be giving Ken Buck any awards for size of balls or having a spine yet. He doesn't have a different agenda from the GOP. He also wants Biden out but thinks the impeachment is not going to work. He just introduced a congressional resolution calling for VP Harris to invoke the 25th amendment.

"She's fucking stupid" reminds me of an old Disney joke. Mickey accused Minnie of having an affair based on something Donald Duck told him. She denied it and got pissed off, kicking Mickey out. So Mickey decided to have it out with Donald and confronted him, demanding he tell the truth. "I never said she was having an affair with anyone. I said she was fucking goofy" replied Donald.

I heard it set up as a divorce court in which the judge says:

"Mr. Mouse, this state does not recognize -- I'm paraphrasing here, for obvious reasons -- **extreme eccentricity** as legitimate grounds for divorce. It looks like I will not be able to grant your request for a dissolution."

Mickey: "I didn't say she was eccentric! I said she was fucking Goofy!"

NFL Players Association released the results of players polling on different topics.

Worst owner? Kansas City Chiefs.

The guy’s name is Clark Hunt.

You read that correctly

What, if anything, were his parents thinking?

Expand full comment

when the franchise was born, as the (AFL charter member) Dallas Texans, they lost a million dollars the first year. Reporters asked the owner's dad, Lamar Sr., (Clark's grandfather or great-grandfather, I forget which) what he thought of his son Lamar Jr. losing a million dollars in his first year in the football business. Sr. said, "It's terrible! At that rate he'll be broke in 150 years!" (this was in 1961, when $150 M was A Whole Shitload Of Money.)

Or, as I like to say for the comedy value of the unidiomatic hyper-correctness, AN Whole Shitload.

Buck didn't make Schmitt look like a goddamned moron on live TV. Because Schmitt is a goddamned moron on live TV.

So how is all this going down with normal people who don't pay too much attention to every single political thing? I'm thinking it's likely that they're all just thinking "Eh, it's Washington, they're all corrupt". Would be nice, though, if they were mostly thinking "You know, those republicans seem to be kinda fuckups".

I overheard my bus driver and another passenger briefly talk about this, and they were right there in the "they're all corrupt" box.

This performative bullshit is just cover for the actual crime family - Trump's - grab for every last cent the GOP has.

Or at least Comer will leave the hearing and lie and tell reporters Hunter did, while he strums his banjo and picks boogers out of his teeth.

Presumably, his own, right? Right? [that's not an assumption I'm confident in making]

Well, I guess Scotland Yard can't dust for boogers, just like they can't dust for vomit.

Expand full comment

People tout Scotland Yard as this great investigative mechanism, but Holmes ran rings around them, and now this?

Expand full comment

LOL Comer's just trying to win the moment. All you have to do with the reanimated goat-brain supporters who just want to get a refreshing hit of "Democrats bad, groomers, not real America!"

That he's mum about the proceedings today is very funny. Yeah EVERYBODY knows it's bullshit. Good that the White House is publicly pushing back too.

Ron “Russia on the Fourth of July” Johnson has so far escaped indictment for trying to overturn the 2020 election with false electors so he’s more than happy to smear Joe Biden with Russian intel.

Uh huh. One minute your source is a trusted FBI informant so you can believe him. The next it's YOU CAN'T TRUST THE FBI. Cultists will not see a problem with that hypocrisy, because if it doesn't go your way it's because THEY stole it from you.

Yeah because the FBI is FAMOUSLY left wing.

Yup.

Well, considering all the FBI members who dressed up as MAGAt Antifas on January 6th and broke into the U.S. Capitol to take a leisurely tour…

Is this the son that has a child with a seventeen year old or is this another son that will be cluttering up county lockup on a regular basis over the next few years?

Expand full comment

He was seventeen when he unfortunately impregnated his fifteen-year-old girlfriend.

Now, he's that ripe old age of eighteen, and in the system. Daddy may not be proud, but at least he can finally give him some advice.

EDIT: Come to think of it, so can Mom. She's in the system, too.

Pretty sure it's the one with a kid.

Yeh, it is, so the "underage mom" will have to somehow figure a way to feed little Pubert Boebert on her own while the baby daddy's in the clink. And Lauren her own self was presented a "Mom Under The Influence" award by the "MF'ers of America."

Grandma may not be that reliable of a source either. She's got a performance review coming up at work, and, if that doesn't go well, it's not like she's qualified for very many other $174,000/year job with benefits.
