On what may be the last post of the old blogsite: Ave atque vale!
In case anyone missed it, Watergirl posted yesterday evening:
… As John mentioned, the transition to the new site will start somewhere around 6 am tomorrow. It may not start right on the dot at 6, and you are welcome to stay on Balloon Juice until the moment the old site is taken down. Who will be the last person to comment on the last thread on the current site?
So what can you expect for tomorrow? When you see a message come up on balloon-juice.com instead of the website, that’s how you will know that the process has started.
It takes awhile to count each of the 5.5 million comments as we move them to the new site. Okay, we’re not actually counting them, but you knew that. It still takes a long time to move everything over!
We are unlikely to have anything to report until at least 10 am, but John will provide updates on his twitter account whenever there is something to say. Anyone can view John’s twitter account at this link: https://twitter.com/johngcole…
Since I’m the backstage Unofficial Official Stress Tester, I’m planning to schedule a late-morning post on Erdogan’s visit, just to see when (if) it shows up on the new site. So you’ll have something fresh to look for, Murphy the Trickster God willing…
NBC, CBS, ABC and PBS all plan to pull normal programming in favor of coverage of the impeachment hearings.

“The Trump approach to impeachment is expected to follow his usual response to adversity: Flood the zone with so much content that no one can tell what it true, false, biased or just plain spin.” – @nancook https://t.co/TP1qLFTTlh

Does this defense usually work?
Defense atty: During the trial, I will demonstrate that my client is a moral abyss. In his mind, any action that feeds his appetite for wealth, power, & approval is acceptable & even good. Therefore, he can never form the requisite corrupt intent.

I think the best way to get good coverage of the hearings that begin tomorrow is for some prominent Dem to write it all up in a series of emails, then get “hacked” and have those emails posted online so journalists can repeat what the emails say.

Impeachment scheduling alert: Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr says trial will last for "6 to 8 weeks." It will run for 6 days a week, from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m., a big chunk of time for senators also running for president hoping to be in IA, NH or anywhere but DC in Dec/Jan/Feb.
