5:12 In some ways these are even prettier than Faberge - softer, and more natural looking.

Other JD - Why am I not surprised (besides having read this somewhere else earlier - I wasn't surprised then either.)

TNY - Straight news - and probably not bad news. The very best liars know how to use elements of truth to strengthen the credibility of their lies. If their new press secretary can't do that, it's a plus.

AlterNet - "[D]iscontent in America's rust belt because [of] economic dislocation"? Or discontent in America's rust belt because Obama was black? There is such a thing as turnout. The fact that Obama carried these counties twice may only mean that Nazis couldn't believe that he could possibly win the county, and stayed home. Consider this:
I do agree the Democratic leadership is missing the leftward shift of actual Democrats throughout the nation, and we need to bring that to their attention, not as something to be feared, but as something to be embraced. At least superdelegates have been abolished now. That may help.

Cartoon - I'm amazed that Republicans haven't torn it down yet.

I'm amazed the Lady in the Harbor hasn't hitched a ride on a ship back to France.

The only way the Democrats are going to have an even bigger Blue Wave in 2020, and kick tRump's orange arse out of the Oval Office, is if they have a genuine Progressive for a nominee - not a DemocRAT phony who might as well be GOP Lite.

The other JD: I hope that the Intel community continues....I find it frightening that this Chode in office is not trusted, nor ever has ever been.

N:Yer: Pretty much, Andy. That's the way it is now.

Cartoon: France wants it's Lady back !!

Sure hope that you have a good day....I'm feeling under the weather, with a low temp, so I'm going back to bed. Y'all take good care, and thanks, Tom.

JD: Really is sad that the the fool in office can't be trusted.
TNY: Awful to think that the don't want honesty ones,
Hope it gets cooler there TC. I thought you were moving this week?
Take care. Thanks TomCat
