4:49 If there's anything to hunt, you've got good conditions - cats are crepuscular.

Trae - Said to see Trae reduced to virtually speechless. Not that he is the only one, of course.

Liz - Doublespeak. But Liz is right. A lie is a lie is a lie. What a - REPUBLICAN !!

Chris - There were two Nazis who won Republican primaries Tuesday. From the mention of Tim Kaine, this must be Corey Stewart. The one who insulted Chris's daddy (who would have rearranged his face for it were he not dead and buried.) Apparently Corey Stewart also NEVER SHUTS UP.

Cartoon - But look how Republicare has solved the problem of obesity! (/Snark)

Trey: Love this guy. Yeah, Dude, "it's not good" re: dt.

DK: Ms. Warren cleared the air with his ongoing lies, while Azar tried to flummox her. Not gonna work.

C&L: Gawd, I don't know how Cuomo remained calm through the interview with this pompous a--! Unreal.

Cartoon: We're screwed.

*Flag Day: "For me, the flag does not express a mere body of vague sentiment. The flag of the United States has not been created by rhetorical sentences in declarations of independence and in bills of rights. It has been created by the experience of a great people, and nothing is written upon it that has not been written by their life. It is the embodiment, not of a sentiment but of a history." Woodrow Wilson 1915.

Hope that you have a relaxing evening, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

Trae: Our favourite redneck isn’t buying any of Drumpf’s 🐄💩, nor any of Kim’s. And neither are we.

DK: Liz at her best, showing Drumpf up for the liar he is and the HHS secretary for nothing more than a worm trying to spin a cocoon around these lies while hoping that people will believe this miscreant will produce a beautiful butterfly someday.

C&L: Chris Cuomo must get really frustrated with his job sometimes. There’s just no way he can get those Republican Nazis to shut up and own up to what they are. Their needle is stuck in the same groove: aggressively attacking the left with lies and made-up recriminations to smooth over their own disgusting bigotry, and when that fails, loudly make a personal attack on your assailant. They’ve all read Drumpf’s handbook on the subject.

Happy Flag Day.
Did you hear the Great news that London Breed, who's Democratic, won the mayor position in San Francisco? They finally finished the mail in ballots. She'll be sworn in next month.
I got a kick out of the red neck guy.
Cartoon: So true, and scary. '
Glad Wendy's niece Katie, is going to work out.
Take care, Thanks TomCat

3:03. TCC: Trae does have some excellent points. The main one I seem to get stuck on is that Kim Jong Un is a DICTATOR, with a terrible record for starving, working to death, or just outright killing his own people. Either the white supremacists don't care or they really do want our country to be run by a dictator.

DKC: Senator Warren is so patient. The guy lies, won't answer a direct question, and makes it clear he's got only the drug companies interests in mind. We just can't get sick...

BBA: Another liar who chooses to remember only what he wants. Just like our dictator wannabe.

Cartoon: Exactly right.

Thanks for the post, TomCat. Hope your A/C is up for the heat.

"Republicans desecrate the flag by wrapping themselves in it." LOL TC

That Liberal Redneck talks funny!! Like tellin' a beaver to whaaat.....?!

I absolutely love Trae.
I was so happy to see Elizabeth reaming out the HHS secretary.
Loved Chris Cuomo telling off the Nazi.
Thank you TomCat.

Thank you for the Video!
Love Liz Warren! We need more like her!
Looking more and more like TRUMPY is throwing his dedicated Fixer Lawyer Cohen Under the Bus!!
He should know TRUMPY can't be trusted! Interesting!
Thank you TomCat

Thanks for Trey--he did a great job of revealing the emptiness.
I saw Colleen--and part of her win may be attributable to how nastily she was removed from her temp assignment when she was going to run. Di Fi was the only other woman elected mayor in SF and she is their first black mayor.
Pat-love the Wilson quote.

Puzzle — 4:03 Happy hunting in what appears to be the burbs

Liberal Redneck — LMAO!!! I do however still have some trouble understanding his southern accent, but not this part. “He’s insulting and alienating Canada, CANADA! That’s like telling a beaver to go f**k itself. Who don’t like beavers? Who don’t like Canada?” Drumpf obviously! That’s OK . . . we don’t like him, the US Liar-in-Chief, either! But the rest of the global community has to deal with him until the US gets rid of him by whatever means necessary, the sooner the better.

Daily Kos — Azar is doing the Republican two-step! He distracts and obfuscates (or at least tries to), and above all LIES just like his master. But Liz is on him like fleas on a dog. Warren is a national treasure!

Crooks & Liars — Barf Bag Alert in deed! Stewart is a POS Republican style! Get out the vote and bury these assholes in a blue wave!

Cartoon — Ain’t that the truth!!!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

Puzzle --- 5:00 All that glitters is not real gold. This is definitely not one of my favourite puzzles.

MSNBC --- When it comes to the email situation, is this one of the IOKIYAR scenarios? I agree with JD that Clinton and others used private servers while Comey used gmail or other such email platform on a public server. For someone so concerned about perceptions, this definitely is strange to have let slip.

The New Yorker --- I hope Drumpf told Kim there is a "No Returns" policy! LMAO!!!

Think Progress --- A true Axis of Evil --- Drumpf and Kim Jong-Un! Drumpf is, at this point, a dictator in waiting but is getting closer to being a maniacal dictator like Kim. Right now, the constitution stands in his way as well as those willing to oppose him. But with Republicans toadies playing their power and greed games, things could change quickly. I should remind Republicans that that even Kim's generals etc and family members are known to "disappear" so I doubt toadie Republicans would be safe from Drumpf's reach.

Cartoon --- As if we need a reminder when it happens so often. That map definitely needs updating, although it would be even more depressing.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

It is unfortunate that you did not get a decent sleep. But I definitely understand the hay fever issue. I could not ditch the hay fever symptoms yesterday as I went about my business. The cottonwood and broom are still especially bad right now. I actually got a good night's sleep last night but I also resort to using trazadone if I don't need to be up early. Having said that, it is all in the timing of its use. Great that it is not addictive, but the ensuing good sleep is addictive! I hope tonight is better!
