.@RepAdamSchiff on Trump/Russia connection: "There is more than circumstantial evidence now...and is very much worthy of investigation."


As he once said on SNL - "this is the Al Franken Decade."

It could finally be underway! For real!

Welcome to DU, shedevil1111!

Obama did it.

Hillary did it.

"...but Hillary..."

"...but, but, but, EMAILS!"

I'll stick with my preferred LEFT-wing talking point that sums up what the GOP is at its "heart" and "soul":


Who's yer daddy, Devin?

I think we can guess.

Thank You, Sweet Lady Maxine!

You are Da Bomb!

Still on the payroll, dude?

Wouldn't surprise me one bit. Not much surprises me about these people anymore.

Wouldn't surprise me. And that Zippy the Pinhead was part of it doesn't surprise me either.

I suspect he's the one who was trying to plant stories with Michael S. Schmidt of the New York Times - about Hillary facing a CRIMINAL investigation (which DIDN'T exist). And of course Schmidt, thinking he had a fabulous inside "source" ran with it, and it made the front page, and he was invited onto all kinds of news shows to talk it up. Only to have it all fall apart within the next couple of days.

And little ol' Michael S. Schmidt didn't show his face - OR his byline - for awhile.

I've seen him resurface, with two other reporters, in front page stories that haven't been as friendly to Gowdy's pals. Maybe he learned his lesson? MAYBE. He was hungry to make the front page. Visions of Pulitzers probably danced in his head, along with his own show on some cable network or something, and the fame and fortune and book deals and bragging rights and pecking order and all that.

FAIL. He trusted Gowdy, and it smacked him in the ass.

Yeah, I hear ya. It shouldn't be that way.

But since they play such ridiculous games, seems to me we have to outplay them, and out-game them.

Shit - I remember that, too

Watched it on TV. Then-mayor George Moscone was killed that night, too, along with Harvey Milk. I think she was the chair of the county supervisors or city council or something. She was the ranking member of whatever body it was. So she was, in effect, next in line for mayor. And she assumed the mayor's job because of what had happened.

I still remember that impromptu news conference - I think it was on the steps of City Hall, or in the hallway of City Hall. She was surrounded by this huge gaggle of reporters and camera crews, with other city officials clustered around and behind her. You could just barely see her face sticking out from the midst of that crowd. And she was so damn calm and composed. So in control. She provided a real tower of strength - for real, not just a cliche - during a stunningly tumultuous, maddening, horrifying time in San Francisco. The whole city was jolted as if from an earthquake - and man do they understand earthquakes up there.

I remember being so impressed by her demeanor. She was utterly unruffled. And in that kind of situation, somebody HAS TO be. You NEED that image or metaphor for a steady hand on the wheel. And she was IT. She really stepped up. She made her bones, politically, that night, for sure. I remember watching her and thinking she was surely going to move up to bigger things from that.


You do NOT reward OR reinforce bad behavior.

Notice that trump's sent his lawyers out to protect his brand. Not so much that their target was posing ANY kind of actual threat to him. She's abusing his precious fucking brand forcryingoutloud. Horrible-Terrible-Incredible.
