    I get that clowns are creepy and frightening, but that doesn’t justify comparing them to Tucker Carlson.

    @Roger Moore: Agreed. And while clowns may be creepy and frightening, they aren’t known for being misogynistic, racist assholes.

    Also, have you ever seen a clown whose facial expression is constantly dog-who’s-just-been-shown-a-card-trick?

    And who would take the clown name ‘Fucker Carlson’?

    Posted on Twitter right before midnight DC time:

    The U.S. will withdraw all remaining personnel from @usembassyve this week. This decision reflects the deteriorating situation in #Venezuela as well as the conclusion that the presence of U.S. diplomatic staff at the embassy has become a constraint on U.S. policy.— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) March 12, 2019

    5) Has Oil
    6) The added Bolton who loves war the way I love Tater Tots ( I love Tater Tots a lot)
    7) Has Oil.

    the interesting question is that unlike Bush, Trump has no stamina when it comes to this. First sign of trouble, which won’t take long, he’ll throw everyone under the bus.

    IT’s going to be an epic clusterfuck.

    Sort of. To keep the US’s “fingerprints” off the operation, they’re going to send in a covert demolitions team to blow up the German dam, thus crippling Venzenula’s hydroelectric camshaw, which will directly cause problems with their turbo encabulator. They did a practice run in Nambia a few weeks ago. Or something like that.

    This is all being done under the direction and watchful eye of Generalissimo Traitor-in-Chief, and the above “plan” was directly transcribed from his tweets.

    So it’s been an exciting birthday for me. I got food poisoning from my birthday lunch last week, and lost the entire weekend to [use your imagination] and then recovery from same. And today, my actual birthday, I got suspended from twitter pending appeal because I called a person an ignorant little bitch and told her that her children should leave her out on the curb once she’s no longer useful. I was responding to her multiple tweets screaming that all social programs should be eliminated because there are people who are unwilling to work and it sets a bad example.

    I suppose in a way, Twitter gave me the best birthday present ever. If they drag it on long enough, I will simply lose the habit of reading that site full of half rotted garbage. Sounds like a good plan to me!

    All the US is gonna do is yell some and tweet some.

    There are no “allies”, there are no Venezuelan “contras”, and even the OAS isn’t paying any attention to the US anymore.

    All the US can do is shit-stir.

    “The New York Times is reporting Sunday that the fire was actually started by supporters of oppostion leader Juan Guiado.

    “Unpublished footage obtained by The New York Times and previously released tapes — including footage released by the Colombian government, which has blamed Mr. Maduro for the fire — allowed for a reconstruction of the incident. It suggests that a Molotov cocktail thrown by an antigovernment protester was the most likely trigger for the blaze. At one point, a homemade bomb made from a bottle is hurled toward the police, who were blocking a bridge connecting Colombia and Venezuela to prevent the aid trucks from getting through. But the rag used to light the Molotov cocktail separates from the bottle, flying toward the aid truck instead. Half a minute later, that truck is in flames. The same protester can be seen 20 minutes earlier, in a different video, hitting another truck with a Molotov cocktail, without setting it on fire.”

    The Times also reported:

    Many of Mr. Maduro’s critics claim that he ordered medication set on fire during the border standoff — even though many of his people have died of medicine shortages in hospitals. Yet the claim about a shipment of medicine, too, appears to be unsubstantiated, according to videos and interviews. The United States Agency for International Development, the principal supplier of the aid at the bridge, did not list medicine among its donations.

    “They tried a false flag operation, that supposedly the people of Venezuela had burned a truck carrying rotten food — no, no, no — it was they themselves, it was the criminals of Iván Duque,” Mr. Maduro told a crowd, referring to Colombia’s president. “

    Not when the major advertisers are jumping ship. There must be a point at which Carlson is just too toxic for companies to be willing to be associated with him.

    Bayer was the only major advertiser on his show last night, and I’m sure that they are receiving thousands of emails telling them not to associate their brand with a radioactive creep like Carlson as a result of that. And Carlson can’t claim he misspoke, or his words were taken out of context. He was repeatedly making detailed arguments in support of his sick views. All he’s really got as a defense is his right to free speech, “Watch my show to see what I believe!“, and “But it was 10 years ago!“. That’s pretty weak sauce.

    @MisterForkbeard: I only discovered the Orville a couple of months ago and I love it. I was almost in tears by the end of the episode with Bortus’s ex. Although the battle scenes go on too long, reminding me of the chicken fights in family guy.

    Beautiful sets, women military professionals dressed like professionals, morally complex stories, and goofy jokes.

    I’ve warmed to the show. I like the characters. I hate the goofy jokes and the lame idea that the crew love 20th century Earth culture.

    But I appreciate that the show is more than a Trek wanna be.

    I just wish that Seth MacFarlane was a better actor.

    @Adam L Silverman:

    Don’t know if you saw this or have written about it. What’s the story behind this? What do the GOP grandees want in terms of foreign policy?

    From Politico

    Cheney grills Pence on Trump’s foreign policy
    In a private session, the former vice president told the current one that Trump’s policy looks too much like Barack Obama’s….

    The former vice president interviewed Pence at the American Enterprise Institute’s annual World Forum in Sea Island, Ga., an off-the-record confab attended by approximately 200 top-dollar Republican donors, lawmakers and business leaders who flock to the private island every spring.

    And who are these weasels who like to meet in secret and plot their little games.

    ETA On original topic. Carlson is even creepier than Laura Ingraham. Will Fox continue to see any value in this dope?

    Ten bucks says Ben Shapiro is worried about his pro-pedophilia opinions being dragged into the light. If I wasn’t so worried about our inevitable war in Venezuela I’d be wallowing in schadenfreude at his anxiety.

    And here I’m hoping they’re just opinions. Because if any pundit ever seemed like the brainwashed survivor of a pedophile ring…

    Gotta say, I always knew republicans were racist and misogynist but their across-the-board enthusiasm for child rape has really taken me by surprise.

    I mean, I knew Southern republicans aspired to child brides but I really didn’t think the buttoned-down Ivy League type were closet kiddie-fiddlers.

    Where did you think closet kiddie-fiddlers came from?

    I am going to miss the Irish sheep farmers on twitter. They post lots of lovely videos of what’s happening. The lambs are now about three weeks old, and I will miss what happens next. Sad for me.

    @Jay: Probably never see this as I went to sleep, but another poor attempt at humor: Tweet below is from little Marco Rubio, “Today another transformer explosion at the German Dam in Bolivar State caused another massive blackout”…

    German Dam, the reporter who was covering that story, quickly responded to inform Rubio of his mistake, at which point he deleted his tweet.
