To be fair to Cindy the burner phones, and the male prostitute ..

cover story, were all Todd Courser's doing. Of course Cindy went along with it.

The bigger concern is that the cover-up continues. What did the GOP leadership in the House know? What did AG/GOPvernor-in-waiting Bill Schuette know? What did Governor Snyder know (the 'onetoughnerd' was conveniently out of the Country when this all got "fixed"?

Which explains why Sam Singh and others in the House voted against expulsion pending a real and thorough investigation. Now those fears have been realized. Since there was no real investigation or other penalties Courser and Gamrat are now able to spin this any way they want and run for their open seats (as another DUer pointed out thanks to the crazy gerrymandering in this State they stand a good chance of winning those solidly Red districts).

At least Cindy Gamrat was always up front about being a teabagger.

Michigan Panthers

The Michigan Panthers were great...

The only pro football championship in nearly 60 years for the State of Michigan.

Donald Trump ruined that model where you drafted local players and played in the spring and summer instead of going head-to-head with the NFL. Trump ruined that like he has everything he's touched.

At least we still have Courser & Gamrat.


It may be worth remembering that Judy Smith of "Scandal" fame was hired to orchestrate the efforts to sabotage Caroline Kennedy...

Gov. Paterson's decision to go nuclear on Caroline Kennedy was a hatchet job run by a pricey out-of-state consultant who specializes in political scandals, disgruntled administration sources said.

Why has there never been a military coup in the United States?

There is a running joke in Bolivia and other Latin American countries that goes like this:

[font color=blue]Q: Why has there never been a military coup in the United States?[/font]

[font color=darkred]A: Because there's no U.S. embassy in the U.S.[/font]

In September 2008, Morales made sure there wouldn't be one in Bolivia, either, and kicked U.S. Ambassador Philip Goldberg out of the country.

Then, that November, Morales expelled the DEA, arguing that the agency had committed human rights violations, covered up murders and was routinely using its investigative powers to target politicians and movement leaders who were challenging Washington's neoliberal agenda. Morales had made a campaign promise to nationalize the country's natural gas resources and use the proceeds to develop the economy from the bottom up...

On-air challenge: This is a game of categories, based on the word "virgo," which is the astrological sign for this time of year. For each category, name something in the category beginning with each of the letters V-I-R-G-O.

For example, if the category were "chemical elements," you might say vanadium, iron, radium, gold and oxygen. Any answer that works is OK, and you can give the answers in any order.

Last week's challenge: Name a famous movie in eight letters that has had multiple sequels. The title is one word. Rearrange its letters to get a two-word phrase for a satchel. What is it?

Answer: "Superman" > man purse.

Winner: P.K. Musarra of Philadelphia.

Next week's challenge, from listener Ben Bass of Chicago: Name a well-known U.S. geographical place two words; five letters in the first word, six letters in the last that contains all five vowels (A, E, I, O and U) exactly once. It's a place that's been in the news. What is it?


The Ghost Writer

In response to these DU threads:

Looks like Tony Blair doesn't think much of Bernie Sanders either

Tony Blair warns against moving left as Jeremy Corbyn leads poll

Here's the trailer of a movie from a few years back that was a brutal takedown of the Blair regime.

Based on Robert Harris' book The Ghost it has Pierce Brosnan playing a thinly veiled Tony Blair (Adam Lang) character. DVD it or stream it.
