7:24 I was hoping if I went slowly enough they might ripen.

Late Show - if it were as full of s*** as he is, it wouldn't fly. I realize that's not exactly what you said.

Chris - Is the one on the yacht the same one who crashed his?

TNY - Perhaps in the full article he mentioned that the person who was evaluating the essays was none other than Anthony Kennedy.

Cartoon - Don't we, though. How much can we take?

LSC: Hope Scotland has one too. He's going (where else?) to one of his golf courses there. On Th/Fri, he'll be in London. Wonder how Prime Minister Theresa May, and Queen Elizabeth II will fare? imho...I think both should call 'in sick', or be 'nowhere to be found'.

MSNBC: Scary, indeed !!! Rethuglacons have no spine, therefore they won't stop, or 'draw the line' on this either.

NYer: Oh yes! Pleeeeze!!! LOL, Andy!

Cartoon: Chiseling a little! ugh!!

Hi, WWWendy! Hope that you have a good evening, take care, and Thanks, Tom.

Late Show: Excellent!
MSNBC: Grossman is running in N.J.’s southernmost district (Gee, is there a pattern?), and is as much a pig as the rest of them. I’m sorry that I don’t live in that district, as I will not have the chance to vote for his opponent…also because Cape May county is a great place for birding. Dumpy’s presence on the national scene has given these guys the sense that they belong to the greater culture so much that they can speak out about their sick views. Sadly, many to many supposed Americans seem to agree with their crap!
New Yorker: Written in true infantile style, befitting this clown!

LS: I sympathize for all of these foreign leaders who do have to sit and listen to his worthless mouth. He's making more enemies each and every day and leaves like a skunk with his endless trail of stink.
Love the cartoon.
Take care and good luck on the Cat Scan tomorrow. You did reschedule it for tomorrow right?
Thanks TomCat

3:14. LSC: Hysterical. Love Stephen Colbert.

MSNBC: Unfortunately, the GOP doesn't care what these people are, just that they are "on their side".


Thanks for the post, TomCat. Good to know WWWendy is back.

TLS: This Trump Baby blimp has been up in the air for weeks now, so to speak, but until now no permission was given to fly it.
"Khan's office said the "Mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands this can take many different forms." London city officials previously turned down permission sought by the group behind the blimp, named "Trump Baby," after more than 10,000 people signed a petition and contributed to a crowdfunding campaign to pay for it.
It will be anchored to a spot in Parliament Square Gardens and not allowed to fly higher than 100 feet. Big Ben, the nickname for the Great Bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster across from Parliament Square Gardens, is 315 feet tall. "(USA Today)
That's not high at all, so there's little chance Drumpf will actually see it, but the signal is clear: Drumpf, you're not welcome in London.

MSNBC: The US is in trouble when one party in a two-party system is OK with racism, white supremacy, neo-nazism, misogyny, paedophile...and even more in trouble when the head of the party, the American President, stands for all of that. The country is in even more trouble when far, far less then half of the population is Republican, but Republicans rule as if they have the federal majority.

Worst of all, those voting Republicans think and behave very differently from their Democratic counterpart. They will vote for Drumpf and the GOP again as long as there's one issue they agree with or let themselves be lied to so they can believe it. One issue is enough to forget about all the issues they don't agree with or even despise. Democrats on the other hand, will not vote for a candidate if there's only one issue they disagree with, no matter how passionate they might be on other issues. Republicans vote with their gut feeling, Democrats vote with their rational brain. Republican's will never change and will vote Republican no matter what. Unless Democrats adopt the same strategy and this time vote Democrat no matter what and turn the tide in November, and will throw away the last opportunity to turn things around.

TNY: As I said yesterday, Andy: Kavanaugh & Drumpf = Rejected

“Robocalls in support of California congressional candidate John Fitzgerald assert that Jews are taking over the world and ‘must be stopped.’...The state GOP says it is bound by its bylaws to endorse Fitzgerald, even though it says it denounces his views. (

Drumpfelthinskin won’t be in London much, but Melania will.

Alexandra Petri on John Kelly’s reaction to his orange boss’s NATO tirade:

Also Andy: Merkel told Mueller that she would take a leave of absence as leader of the German government and move to Washington to work full-time for Mueller “if that would be of assistance.” She said she is fluent in Russian and could work on translations.
