5:36 Must be Michael.
Great meditation on false equivalence.

A Jimmy Carter story for the ages (hanky alert).

The Mueller report in just under 29 minutes

MSNBC - Biden's statement is indeed delusional, and, if he believes it, then, yes, he is delusional. Too delusional for the office.

Other JD - While I don't think we should get hysterical or hung up on this, I do think we - by which I mean the party and particularly elected officials - need to be brainstorming this and making tentative plans to physically remove him from the White House if he doesn't leave voluntarily.

CD - Honey, bombing ANYONE is insane. It would be insane even if the Fuhrer were not a blowhard and utterly unpredictable (but then if that were not so, no one would even be considering bombing anyone, would they.)

Cartoon - And yesterday was the fourth anniversary of the shooting at Mother Emanual AME. What a contrast!

MSNBC: Joe needs to go sit down and rethink his strategy, this is not going to fly. imho

The other JD: Really good video. The id in the WH needs to go.

CD: He's completely off the rails on this one. Yes, insanity reigns in his head.

Cartoon: People who cared about people and their human rights.
*Joanne: Gawd, has it been four years already? How horribly sad.

We're humid here too, and I'm finally coming around to not feeling ill, but playing it safe for another day.
Hope that you have a good afternoon/evening, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

The Mango Menace is completely out of his skull! Not leave office? He just doesn't understand the rules of being POTUS - and even if he did, like the spoiled, sheltered brat he is he has no intention of following them.

We need to vote out as many Repugs in office everywhere and anywhere....and then push strong progressive legislation and then pack the courts.....compromise, not anymore...decades of trying to work together and compromise have put us trouble

MSNBC: Seems to me that Biden needs to press the update on his head computer. He's not up to date and need a refresher class so he can participate in this election.
Other JD: He needs to be voted out of there. I can see it then, when another one wins then he will be crying fowl play.
Agree with David that we need to vote lots of the repugs out of their current posts.. We have too many who like their leader, doesn't nothing for the people.
CD; He's insane. He loves battles. We don't need this to be happening.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

Prayers that all who need to get on rapid-roll update do so post haste. Dems, progressives et al, are yet mismeasuring timelines and the GOP agendas on convoluted rolls -- need to click on the hurry-up . . .better late then never . . .hope springs eternal...wonders never cease. . .Godspeed. . .

Heart to all. . .

3:53. MSNBC: Biden didn't learn a thing from being VP. Obama practically bent over backward to try and work with the GOP; they never did; and, no, they didn't get much done.

JDC: Amazing how his supporters actually think Agent Orange is doing a good job. To me he's an entertainer, albeit not a very good one, who loves the attention. When he doesn't get enough, he creates a crisis. His supporters hang on every word and only think about the next "show".
CD: Bombing Iran is not only insane, it would be the start of WWIII. We will all be in danger, then.
Thanks for the post, TomCat.
