    Heh:

    Just remember that the GOP questioning has gone as follows:

    Day 1: "There wasn't a quid a pro quo."

    Day 2: "How do you know there was a quid pro quo? You weren't even there when the call happened! This is second-hand information!"

    Day 3: "So what if you were on the call? You didn't talk to Trump directly! Plus aren't you a secret Ukrainian operative, Mr. Decorated military officer?"

    Day 4: "So what if you talked to Trump, Giuliani, Pence, Pompeo, and Perry directly? The President said he wasn't soliciting a bribe while he solicited bribes!"

    And the entire book could be printed with the font "Tiny Hand", now available to the world!

    Holy shit, this lady's a hero!

    ...some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country—and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did. This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves.

    The unfortunate truth is that Russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked our democratic institutions in 2016. This is the public conclusion of our intelligence agencies, confirmed in bipartisan Congressional reports. It is beyond dispute, even if some of the underlying details must remain classified.

    The impact of the successful 2016 Russian campaign remains evident today. Our nation is being torn apart. Truth is questioned. Our highly professional and expert career foreign service is being undermined. U.S. support for Ukraine—which continues to face armed Russian aggression—has been politicized.

    The Russian government’s goal is to weaken our country—to diminish America’s global role and to neutralize a perceived U.S. threat to Russian interests. President Putin and the Russian security services aim to counter U.S. foreign policy objectives in Europe, including in Ukraine, where Moscow wishes to reassert political and economic dominance.

    ...I refuse to be part of an effort to legitimize an alternate narrative that the Ukrainian government is a U.S. adversary, and that Ukraine—not Russia—attacked us in 2016. These fictions are harmful even if they are deployed for purely domestic political purposes. <spoken while staring, presumably, straight at Devin Nunes>

    God, his smug orange face and simpering tone.

    Celebrating the Centennial of women's suffrage: "I'm curious why wasn't it done a long time ago? And also, I guess the answer to that is because now I'm president, we get things done."

    People are yukking it up over Trump's apparent whiff on the meaning of "Centennial," but in reality it's even worse than that.

    Not only did we wait to celebrate the 100th anniversary until 100 years had actually passed (for some reason), the 19th amendment wasn't ratified until 1920. So the fact is, we're celebrating a year early just so you can have some good press on your watch, Don. You retard.

    Just warming up the thesaurus for my completely non-confrontational holiday visit to Fox News territory.

    platitude A trite or banal remark or statement, especially one expressed as if it were original or significant.
    bombast Pompous oratory or pretentious writing.
    grandiloquence Pompous or bombastic speech or expression.
    meretricious Showy; gaudy; tawdry; based on pretense; attracting attention in a vulgar manner.
    sophistry A plausible but misleading or fallacious argument.
    specious Plausible but false; based on pretense; deceptively pleasing.
    deepity A statement that is apparently profound but actually asserts a triviality on one level and something meaningless on another.

    When I settled into my hotel room last Tuesday night, the first day of the House Judiciary Committee's hearings was airing on all the news channels. I tuned into NBC News right around the time Republican lawyer Paul Taylor started questioning Jonathan "Unique Method of Interpreting Federal Law" Turley. It's at around 3 hours, 34 minutes here:

    I couldn't pay any attention to what was being asked or answered. Because there was a girl over Taylor's shoulder.

    And she seemed to be acutely aware of the camera's position.

    And she spent the next 15 minutes unnaturally straining her neck to keep herself in frame.

    It was thoroughly distracting.

    Especially when she started making pouty faces.

    I salute you, porn librarian girl.

    Google "blonde girl sitting behind republican counsel" and you'll find out it's not even the first time in the past month that a pretty blonde girl has sat behind a Republican lawyer during one of these hearings. Republicans (or maybe just lawyers) really like pretty blonde girls, especially on TV.
