Never Forget


Rightwing Bible-beater Rick Santorum, having failed twice at running for president and also briefly presided over a crappy Christian film studio (which is somehow still in business, at least as a distributor?) has a new gig to help pay the bills, since that frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter doesn't come out by itself, you know:

Reaction around the Internet was quick:

CNN is adding a whole new stable of political commentators for the Age of Trump, including Santorum, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, former New York Rep Steve Israel, and a couple of new contributing journamalists, including the Washington Post's Wesley Lowery and investigative nerd king David Fahrenthold, who may even bring along his famous Investigative Reporter notepad. Oh, yeah, and they got some guy from the National Review and some lady from the Washington Examiner, snooze.

We can hardly wait to ignore all the important insights Santorum will bring to his job as a senior political commenter; we will go as far out on a limb as to predict he will say the traditional family is the source of all political and financial stability; abortion bad; contraception bad; gays bad but loved by God as long as they act straight and stop being gay; black people good, especially the sweet ol' Christian ones, but not so much when they're takers or object to having Law and Order done to them arbitrarily; Messican people good when they're Catholic but not when they're undocumented; Iran bad; Israel good; guns good; science bad except in bomb form; and Trump a great man who will be good for America at least until his approval ratings drop low enough that other conservatives jump ship.

There you go, no need to watch CNN, unless that Don Lemon fellow starts talking about aliens and black holes eating airliners again. Enjoy something nice on Netflix or Hulu. We hear "Rick 'n' Morty" is pretty funny.

Doktor Zoom

Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.

Look, it is your afternoon Nice Times at the Supreme Court! It is also your WUT and HUH Times, with Justices Thomas, Sotomayor, Kagan and Gorsuch joining in an opinion by RBG tossing a challenge to Virginia's new, fair districts. Go know!

After the 2010 Census, Republicans in the Virginia House of Delegates did what they do best -- they stole more elections, redrawing the electoral map to ensure themselves a supermajority for all eternity. Why let the voters choose their representatives when the representatives can pick their own voters as the founders intended, right? Voters in 12 of the affected districts sued the Virginia State Board of Elections in 2014 to invalidate the districts as illegal racial gerrymanders, and the House of Delegates intervened in Bethune-Hill v. Va. State Bd. of Elections to support the Board and defend its own power.

After extensive litigation including a trip up to the Supreme Court in 2017, the District Court in the Eastern District of Virginia tossed 11 of the districts as illegal racial gerrymanders and ordered the maps redrawn in 2018. At which point, the Commonwealth of Virginia noped out and quit defending the old, craptastic districts, which should have been the end of it.

BUT NO. The Virginia House of Delegates, which is still held by the GOP despite their party netting nine percent fewer votes than Democrats in the 2017 election, vowed to fight on.
