4:19 Since I've been using the USPS's "Informed Delivery" service, I don't need to go out to mine quite as often.

MoveOn - Thanks for featuring the Pixie Man!

WaPo - A very good decision indeed. And I'm sorry to say that cleaning up will be painful. I'm afraid that the majority of serial harassers and child molesters are actually very lovable apart from that (Trump and Moore being among the exceptions), and our guts are going to say "No! It can't be true!" But it will be true Sorry. I'm reeling right now over James Levine myself.

TNY - What really made me LOL was the name "Heinz Dorrinson" in lieu of the usual "Harland Dorrinson." Priceless!

Cartoon - Very true!

Neo-Nazis feel "neglected and hurt" because Rethuglicans are courting child molesters? I yi yi yi yi, as if those knuckle-draggers couldn't get more ludicrous and risible.

Bravo Time magazine for making daring whistle-blowers the People of the Year! Let us hope this is an indication that sexism is getting marginalized and stigmatized, as it should be. On the other hand, let us hope that the crusade against sexual harassment doesn't degenerate into a McCarthy-style witch hunt.

BBA: Well, that's going to come back and bite him in the A - - !!!

WP: Excellent choice, imho. Bye, Bye, Time Magazine.

NYer: Yep, Nazis one and all !!!!

Cartoon: Absolutely the Word.

YT/Move-On: This worm will turn in any direction he thinks he needs to, in order to save his skinny ass!
WP: As posted on the Culture thread at C2 earlier today.   While it is sad to see, now, 2 Dem. senators step down, this citation is very welcome!  Anyone seen a Republican, or their party,  take responsibility?
NewYorker: TC, I could not agree with you more!
'Toon: There is a problem there: Moore would not see what he has done to children as obscene, but he sure as hell would not want them to be heard!

3:45. YouTube: Not only his boss, but Mr. KKK, himself; no one is above the law.
WP: They made the right choice.
TNY: Our sociopath in charge made it very clear years ago which side he was on (Nazi's, pedophiles, sexual predators), but no one wanted to believe he was serious. I'm waiting for Andy to get back to satire...
Cartoon: Doug Jones should use this in his campaign.
Thanks for the post, TomCat.

MO: Oh, look, Jeff Sessions in his young and innocent days. But even then he was already replaced by a changeling, a Leprechaun. The extremely short memory span is a dead giveaway for a changeling. When confronted with this video he’ll say he has no recollection of it and his boss had assured him it was a fake tape, made by the alt-left. Of course Drumpf is above the law. It’s the whole reason he became president in the first place.

WP: LOL Time’s apt choice must have infuriated Drumpf on more levels than we even thought he had sealed

TNY: Yup, that’s what you get when you try to cater to every fringe group on the right there is. Like little children they get jealous of any new addition to the GOP family who gets too much attention.

Cartoon: Excellent pun.

Great articles. I shared Move On. org site. There is nothing anywhere near me if Drumpf fires Muller but I can share. I can't wait until Trump and his cronies are out of office and hopefully in jail. Thank you TC.

Puzzle — 4:48 Return to sender, address unknown!

MoveOn — “I do no recall saying that.”

Washington Post — AMEN!!!

The New Yorker — Once a nazi, always a nazi. What does not make sense is the evangelicals continuing to support Moore. Well I guess it does make sense since they worship supply side Jesus, not the real one.

Cartoon — He gives me the shivers. Such a vile individual!

Resist, Persist and Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!
