I really hope I'm wrong

and I will freely admit it if I am, but I just don't think republicans will vote to impeach Paxton . The totality of the evidence might be obvious even to them, but now that their hero TFG has given them their marching orders they'll fall in line. As I said, I could be wrong and there was a TX journalists on CNN who thinks he's going down. Like some of you, I've been waiting for this dude to face consequences since 2006.

Joe says we'll know if there's a deal by tonight

Just heard on CNN. Clarification: we'll know by tonight. Let's hope the deal isn't too bad.

My favorite Tina Turner story

She taught Mick Jaggar to dance. True story, but she and he have confirmed it. Of course the Stones and the Beatles and everyone else from that era learned basically everything from black artists. Lol.

Tina was so many things, but to me, she exemplified a strong female role model. And her talent was undeniable. She overcame so much in this life.

RIP, Tina Turner!!

Jake Tapper just gave "props" to Kevin McCarthy

for answering questions from reporters. He had that sparkle in his eye that he reserves for repugs who do the bare minimum to appear normal. He wants them to succeed so badly. Of course as he continued to interview someone who knows something about economics from Moody's, Kevin's little moment didn't appear so laudable anymore. Turns out it's Kevin who started this whole thing. But obviously, CNN and most other newsreaders are just dying to give him credit for ending it.

Has CNN covered the lawsuit against Rudy at all?

I know that MSNBC has, being careful to state that these are allegations. But I have not heard even a mention on CNN. Granted, I am rarely on that channel since the rally they held free of charge for tfg, but it's kind of strange if they are completely ignoring it.

You can almost taste it

The disappointment of CNN and even MSNBC that there are no chaotic scenes of crisis at the border. Today they finally retired their Crisis at the Border! chyrons. But they are floundering. Maybe they could give the Biden administration some credit?
Nah..... Never gonna happen. If they don't get their wild scenes soon they'll drop the whole topic like a hot potato.

Does Daniel Dale still work for CNN?

He was/is their very able fact checker. Seems like this would be the perfect opportunity to use him. Instead of complaining that there were too many lies during tfg's rally, allow the expert to do his job!

About the laughing last night

It confirmed something I've known for decades. Rightwingers have no sense of humor. To them, it's funny to hate and ridicule others, but other than that, they just don't "do" humor. No sense of irony, sarcasm. or most of all, no ability to laugh at oneself. Absolutely none.

I remember back in the 90's when standup was really big, I went to a local live comedy club with a guy on a first (and last) date. He was a rightwinger and he heckled the performer, stepped on his timing, and showed generally no awareness of humor at all. Of course the performer made mincemeat of him since he was a clever human being,and used to being heckled. However, the righwing dude didn't even know he was being a fool of. I was so embarrassed.

Laura Coates on CNN went there!

About an hour ago I heard her live on a CNN panel on Tapper's show. The panelists all tiptoed around the elephant in the room. While they kept saying that tfg was so brave to face questions, and listed topics for tough questions, no one said who would be asking the questions. They kept trying to imply that these republican voters would be challenging him.

Finally, Laura Coates (paraphrasing) said the last thing we want to do is normalize trump. And she questioned whether the repub voters would challenge him.

Everyone else looked uncomfortable. Thanks, Laura!
