    Millhiser is a fucking moron. The VA, ffs, was being run by a few rich invisibles sitting at a Mar-a-lago bar.

    Unfortunately Bilbo Bigot will probably run against Doug Jones for his old Senate seat, unless Mueller has a smoking gun. I will always treasure the memory of his whining about Kamala Harris being mean to him.

    Sessions’ malevolence is so extreme I can’t begin to understand it and haven’t tried. I’ve been around people like him too many hours of my life. What benefit do they derive from making people’s lives more difficult? Do they harbor hatred so great it can never be worn down? Were they shown such hatred early in their lives that it’s the foundation of their existence?

    We can’t waste time trying to suss out their souls. We’ve got work to do to keep democracy together and our spirits strong for at least the next two months. We’re dealing with cornered animals. They’re afraid that they’ll be facing justice because they’ve wandered from the norms, decency, and morality. And the law. Our task is to restore these four things without crossing any lines ourselves. And we haven’t even begun to come to any agreement on what we should tackle first – you know, strategy.

    We should be so lucky. I suspect KKKeebler Sessions won’t be too popular in ‘Bama now that Trump has written him off as a disloyal recuser – and Sessions’s popularity is only likely to decline further in Alabama if he testifies in Mueller’s investigation.

    My understanding, and I could be wrong, is that the DPRK Twitter feed isn’t officially associated with N. Korea at all, and is, in fact, intended to be funny.

    Again, though, I could be wrong about that. It’s what I’ve heard, but I’ve never done any research to verify it.

    @sukabi: It’s always been fake.

    In fact, the DPRK News Service, which first tweeted in July 2009, is the work of a West Coast data analyst and a North Carolina attorney who also blog at Popehat.com, a self-described “group complaint about law, liberty, and leisure” started in 2004 by former federal prosecutor Ken White.

    @Platonailedit: it unknowingly implies powerlessness. Just throwing out voices in his head.
    But I admit singling out Millhiser like I did is a little bit unfair, as there’s often a whole bunch of dum-dums among the ridiculous cast of characters AL follows.

    Is it better than Batesville, Arkansas’ local radio station in 1960? My brother and his friend Jim Burton Arnold were featured on Goin’ Fishin’ for catching a pair of Buffalo in the White River. Gowan fish hun, fish hun all a ty um, fish hun all a ty um…

    My wife is in deep doodoo. We lost our satellite feed this morn and she couldn’t get it back. I had to fix it. I, the resident Luddite, became the Technical Support Representative for the OH household. I went outside and swept the snow off the dish.

    @🐾BillinGlendaleCA: The funny thing is, she had no idea it had snowed. I told her last night that it was snowing and she completely brain farted it. Didn’t really believe it, had to go outside and see it for herself.

    The only person I feel sorry for in the Sessions firing is Kate McKinnon. She’s down to just seven people in the trump administration she can mimic for SNL from the 19 she did from 2016 onward.

    @PaulWartenberg: She’s going to have work on some new people, there’s going to be a lot of turnover between now and the beginning of the year. Unfortunately Trump probably won’t be one of them.

    I think the lesson of Texas should disabuse you of that notion. Now that Sessions is no longer an obstacle to Spankee’s interference with the Mueller probe, all will be forgiven, and everything bad that was said about Jeffy Jeff will be water under the bridge. Sessions remains very popular in Alabama, and he would probably be tough to beat.

    But Doug Jones is going to have an uphill battle holding onto his seat in a normal election regardless of who runs.
