For the ‘conservative’ Supreme Court justices, “The ends justify the means”. They are literally on a ‘mission from God’. However, GOP pols’ lying cannot be justified by ‘ends’. There really aren’t any. As esteemed political philosopher Joe Scarborough has pointed out, the current GOP is about retaining power: nothing else.

  • The British people have had the same Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office longer than they’ve had the same prime minister since David Cameron resigned in 2016: Larry’s outlasted Cameron, Theresa May, Boris Johnson and Liz Truss.

To be fair, Larry is apolitical and not subject to the will of the people. As home to an excellent mouser, as long as Larry does a good job, he’ll be fine.

“…not only is it fine by him that Trump called his wife, Heidi Cruz, ugly in public–it’s also fine by Heidi, who “laughed” when it happened.”

Cruz would let Trump bend Heidi over a log in the woods and command her to bleat “Oink,oink” if Trump would drop his Prez nom intentions.

Well Roberts told the Senate he was there to call balls and strikes, not pitch or bat. By the time he writes memoirs he will be a WWE referee, who’s there to look the other way while the winner’s girlfriend (with giant knockers) beats the loser over the head with a folding chair.

How much do you want to wager that the real story gets next to 10% of the original story’s publicity and mention in the media?

Do you think this will be the headline on the same broadcasts that led with this story when it happened and with the same volume level?

He’s eliminated four Tory PMs to date, and is just getting his claws into the fifth as we write, and you think he’s not political?

Hillary Herself is proud of Larry.

And amazingly - the first statement is more true than the 2nd statement. Doesn’t seem possible - but it is.

If Democratic leaders are going to think and behave live credulous middle schoolers who cannot seem to learn from, I don’t know, reality staring them in the face, then we may as well just hand the country over to the Republicans now and stop this idiotic farce.
