Run for Your Lives

eat_the_lobbyists_firstEvacuating Capitol buildings is the new black, but it's a hastily thrown-together look. The Hill reports that there are calls for a re-evaluation of the emergency plans after last week's "fiasco," described in an email from the office manager for Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), thusly: "Capitol police told staff, 'Run! Run! Take your shoes off and run to Union Station!' We had staffers and interns pushed, and some injured. A woman collapsed as staff and USCP ran by."


This put us in mind of Brian Williams' similar depiction of the rush:

Chris, I was at the west front of the Capitol, I was at the door the security sweep was underway and we were about to be the first to be let out and suddenly the officers screamed, Everybody out of the building. Um. . . so we were running, uh congressional leadership was thrown in cars, I have not seen an exodus of people like this at this speed. They kept yelling this is not a drill [and] people fell, people with canes, walkers.
Yes, truly: A nation at its best, the spirit of 9/11 lives on, etc.

On the bright side: It's good to know that in the event of some modern holocaust, the weak will be killed off early on, before it becomes a burden to support them. Less bright: A world re-populated by junior Hill staffers? The mind reels. . .

What did we say this morning? Something about how "They want a war with Iran," and "Please do not listen to news reports about Trump telling his people to cool their jets with the Iran talk, because they want a war with Iran, and all they are looking for is their trigger"?

News came out early this morning that Iran shot down a US drone in the Strait of Hormuz, outside Iranian waters. Let's see what our president and his war-bonering GOP shitmouths in Congress have had to say about that:

Great. Just great. So what's happening now?

Awesome. Just splendid. Trump is having a cuddle party today with John Bolton (who's had a hard-on to bomb Iran since the Bush administration); Mike Pompeo (who's been making the rounds lying and saying Iran and al Qaeda are best friends, thus implying that it's very legal and very cool for Trump to strike Iran without congressional authorization, based on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Congress voted for five days after 9/11); and Patrick Shanahan, the outgoing acting Defense secretary, who will make way for another acting Defense secretary, because who needs real Defense secretaries? (The new guy, Mark Esper, is part of the meeting too.) And as Senator Schatz points out above, Trump is emotionally unstable and doesn't know dick about foreign policy, so it's just great that he's having an emergency meeting with these unhinged hawks about this right now.

Tell us what this all means, unhinged hawk Lindsey Graham!
