[We’ll get you, fatso and your little dog, Rudy, too!]

Fulton county prosecutors have signaled they want prison sentences in the Georgia criminal case against Donald Trump and his top allies for allegedly violating the racketeering statute as part of efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, according to exchanges in private emails.

[We will still be here!]

“We have a long road ahead,” the Fulton county district attorney, Fani Willis, wrote in one email. “Long after these folks are in jail, we will still be practicing law.”

Te Republican party, as it now exists, is a clown show and completely snafu’ed. It is incapable of passing any legislation beneficial to the majority of the country. It’s greed or ignorant religious nonsense all the way down.
I know there are people out there who want a viable political party, and we need that.But what can they do to achieve one. Top of the to-do list has to be get rid of Trump. Then what?

I interviewed Lear after his memoir came out. He was a mensch. (And pleased I knew who Fred Allen was. For those who don’t know, Fred Allen was considered the wittiest of the radio comedians, and gave his own memoir the best-ever title about broadcasting: “Treadmill to Oblivion.”)

As for MyKevin, has he considered going into business with George Santos?

ETA. Security specialist daughter (T5) says these guys wouldn’t pass a security clearance because they all have various security issues (character and conduct) so Trump would have to override.

Why does Fox hate the military and woman?
Tuberville was blackmailed by weak Republicans. There’s only one way to fix that (msn.com)

The latest candidate for sacrifice is Alabama Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville, who was targeted by an alliance of liberal Democrats and war-happy Republicans for daring to oppose the Biden Pentagon’s radical new policy of spending taxpayer dollars to pay for “abortion vacations” for servicewomen stationed in states that have placed limits on abortion.

Tuberville is new to Washington, so he thought he’d stand up to the administration on behalf of both the unborn and the voters who sent him to D.C. He didn’t realize the Pentagon is accustomed to getting its way in town.

The Pentagon and its allies, however, didn’t realize the new guy doesn’t respond well to bullying, and were shocked when he didn’t bend the knee after a few months. Now Republican Pentagon hawks, including the likes of Sens. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., want to remind everyone they’re the ones in charge of the conservative coalition.

. Not only that, it was a fight the administration picked. Tuberville wasn’t asking for the
was simply asking it not to institute a new, politicized policy. He promised the administration in December 2022 that if it went ahead with the policy change, he’d force votes on every military promotion the Senate had to confirm (and would prefer unanimous consent on). He followed through on that, and fought heroically for 11 months.

Republicans had a chance to back their colleague last week. The House of Representatives had passed a version of the National Defense Authorization Act amended to stop the Pentagon’s illegal use of taxpayer dollars, and the Senate merely had to adopt it. Tuberville reportedly had the votes to do so, but was denied the chance by congressional leaders from both chambers and both parties. In order to hand an easy win to the Pe

My wife said that Qevin should run away and join a circus. He has plenty of experience working in and even trying to drive a qlown qar.

That would actually be more socially useful than his likely destination: K Street, in D.C.

“Raskin on __________ leaving Congress: Good riddance to him.
He did nothing for his country or his constitution at its moment of crisis”

Generic boilerplate adequate for use anytime a Repub departs the House.

Plus it appears she liked the subject matter in some of those books she wanted to ban.

People sure are funny creatures. I’d say Karma got her good.

I’d say, without snark: No, the Republicans who are capable of feeling shame have almost all departed the party… there might be a few left, but they, too, will likely be quitting soon.
