4:54 Nothing to eat here.
Roger Stone Seeks Judge’s Permission to Appear at a Strip Club. Is this headline from The Onion? Nope. it's real.

RMS - The tantrum was indeed staged. I do love Nancy, but it's nice to hear from Chuck sometimes too.

Vox - My sinuses have been very kind to me this year ... but that may well be because it's still winter here. We have had snow every day this week so far. Yes, it melts, becaust the temperature gets up into the 40's, and the snow ruens ro rain, and the rain helps to melt what already fell. But come on, it's MAY, frevvinsake!

DK - I suspected you might be on to this. To me, the punch line (pun intended) is "out on $1,000 bond." REALLY? I suggest everyone click through and look at the graphic there - it's perfect.

Cartoon - The tragedy was that he got to take the easy way out.

MSNBC: Dumpy-INCOMPETENCE PERSONIFIED! His long lived criminal lifestyle is about to be unveiled, not an infrastructure plan that he can not even begin to contemplate.
Vox: This spring season I’ve been quite unbothered by pollen, but we’ll see what the ragweed season brings. It’s not usually bad for me, the month of May can be awful. TC, hope you fell still better.
DK: Almost speechless! But, to answer your rhetorical question: Read Eric Hoffer’s “The True Believer, Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements.” One concept culled from the book may relate to Republican women who are soooo in love with Dumpy, given the way GOPIGGIES relate to their women: When our lives feel futile and worthless, we seek a source of hope. “Hence the embracing of a substitute (for what we have) will necessarily be passionate and extreme.”
‘Tune: Whoa, did he get to feeling futile and worthless at the end? Or was he having dark fantasies of Allied retribution, or both?

I just lost my comment, dam!

RM: Yep, it was staged. I love the mimes on twitter too, noting quite the obvious truths from his lies.

Vox: The continuous rains have upped the mold for me here. The pollen season here, not so bad, as we're done with that.

DK: What an a==! I'd be filing for divorce. He's should also resign from his office.

Cartoon: Coward's way out, after killing millions of people.

Hope that you have a good day, relax/rest, and take good care, Tom. Glad Wendy got to view your new digs too.

3:40 Gadget I don’t care for.

MSNBC: The whole world knew it was pre-planned as soon as they saw his “press conference” with those signs stuck to the stand. Those images have been on every news screen that I know of and they all came to the same conclusion. Schumer is absolutely right, Drumpf hasn’t got an infrastructure plan, and even if he had, he wouldn’t be able to understand it or negotiate on it. And spooked by how close the investigations into his financial background are coming, he resorts to the only way he knows how to deal: intimidation and blackmail. It’s so depressing to know he’ll keep on doing this until he’s finally voted out of office.

DK: What? Doug McLeod got out on a $1000 bail on a misdemeanor charge? Back to his poor beaten-up wife, I’m sure. I wish I could say ‘only in Mississippi’, but sadly this isn’t the case. I hope she got herself into a shelter for victims of domestic violence.

Cartoon: He then had to wait until 1985 before incarnating in Stephen Miller.

MSNBC: What a flipping fool tRump is. Acting like a school age brat. Showing no respect to the house. He's a real disgrace to our country. I wish he'd be taken out of office, so our country can get back to some sort of sanity.
Vox: It's getting crazy everywhere in regard to the Climate Change issues. Too bad we have idiots in office who continue to deny these warnings/changes.
DK: dOug is a no good repug who had no right punching his wife. To get out of jail by posting the $1000. is insane.. He should of been kept for a who lot longer. Women aren't their property.
Hope your day went well and that you can get to bed earlier to make up for last night.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

Yes, his “impromptu” Rose Garden tantrum came complete with ready-made signs. And, later, he had Kellyanne Conjob and Sarah Upchuckabee all giving him high 5s for calmness. Gawd, it’s time for the I word.

Yeah, my Spring cold/allergy has me still coughing up a lung going on 2 months.

Bloodying someone’s face is just a misdemeanor? And the cops don’t know if he got drunk before or after his wife fled the room.

What a week. Feel better and hope your impending move goes smoothly.
