How anyone can take Lindsey "Count Me Out" Graham seriously is beyond me. He changes direction each time the wind blows. Tomorrow he'll probably say he's for impeachment. Whatever. 🥱

Exactly.  And why in God's name should the Democrats even LISTEN to the Republicans on how to proceed with the impeachment trial?  It seems like even the Democrats are forgetting that they control the House and Senate now.  Their gavels, their rules.  Sure, the GOP could vote not to convict Trump, but if the Democrats were wise, they would stick that in their back pockets for the next elections.

I'm assuming that she's looking for employment at Newsmax or OANN where the rest of conservative degenerates go to when they have burned their bridge over at Fox News and they are too toxic for the rest of mainstream netoworks.

First weekend of the new Biden administration, and of course, some funky [!@#$%^&*] had to go down (in Tacoma, WA).

 

Apparently, a Tacoma police officer, who was in pursuit of someone doing burnouts (?), ran down a bunch of pedestrians with their car, then sped on, basically committing a hit-and-run.

 

Here's a link to an article w/ video.  Warning: it's graphic.

Get ready, folks, 'cuz you KNOW the cries to defund/abolish the police are a-comin'.

I remember when they began running these walking the dog ads with Warnock - I think I saw one literally the day after the election. People pooh-poohed Warnock's chances then, but I thought those ads, showing him as just another American walking his little dog, were strong and would make an impact. I was more right than I knew.

She really did alienate all sides - she got on a high horse about her value to Faux News, underestimating just how much non-Faux viewers disliked her for years of racism (and also because she's cold, hard and phony). She belly flopped at NBC - from day one she was a failure. She tried to get mainstream attention again last year with the Tara Reade interview, which went nowhere fast. Now she is in the podcast grift game, whining with other bridge-burners like Glenn Greenwald or Bari Weiss about what victims they are.

Needless to say some are already trying to work up a lather over the dog not being his. I hope no one buys into that fake controversy.

 

When I saw the ads I flashed back to the Michael Steele puppy ad in Maryland's 2006  Senate race, which got a lot of praise but did nothing to help him in his run for the Senate. I'm glad it worked out better for Warnock (it helps that Warnock was a stronger candidate and the ads were not anywhere near as 'cute').
