      I honestly don’t think they CARE.

      They’re just about as useless as Jeff Flake.

      It’s sad that we have come to depend so heavily on any of the GOP demonstrating a conscience, and ridiculous that we have to beg and plead and persuade them to vote like human beings.

      They have to be voted out as soon as possible. I hope people learn from bringing our democracy to this stage.

    It will be very interesting to hear Megan McCain’s political views going forward when she returns to “The View.”

    • September 2, 2018 at 2:56 pm

      Very much so, although I doubt it will change.

    • 33 Nena20409
      September 2, 2018 at 3:26 pm

      Unfortunately, it will not change. She’s married to a Hard Right person. Ben, whatever.
      This woman in 2008 was pro-choice. Then she was hired by MSNBC after 2008.
      Then she was later hired by Fox where she mocked Pres Obama for crying during the 14Dec12 Massacre of Sandy Hook Elem School kids. Weeks ago, she chided and declared her hatred for Hillary Clinton on National TV, on the View. This is a woman she defended against #PBO and praised as a tough woman. Her Husband was a Newt Gingrich fan boy as a youth & helped in their attacks against HRC. So for the last 2-3yrs hanging with Ben….her husband, she claimed weeks ago that she calls Hillary, Crooked Hillary & she hates her.

      I think her only real interest was avenging the treatment of her father by Trump and his acolytes. I don’t see her crossing the aisle, but then again, where does she go with the GOP being as it is today?

      You are the first person I’ve heard share this observation. I think so too Very much so. Also I can’t believe how much he put his family through. All the different events choreographed by him must have brought them to the point of exhaustion many times.

          I found the “missing man” formation very moving. My father had something similar at his funeral, put on by other pilots that wanted to do it for him. Mr. McCain more than deserves such a tribute…his voice and vision (though I did not agree with him on many issues) will be missed in Washington. His family was only more than happy to pay this man his well deserved tribute. He wanted to contrast his view of America from that of Trump’s. Not sure where some of these put down remarks come from here at TOD.

    “But this isn’t grading on a curve. George W. Bush was a horrible person. He is not cute. He is not charming. And pretending he is cute

    Continuing to try to write a message that captures just how much damage has already been done to the Rule of Law while offering a clear path to rectification of the damage.

    We must be relentless in not just stopping but purging from our Republic every action of the currently Illegitimate Executive & Legislative & Judicial Branches of our Republic.

      You could tell the crowd was pulling for her. They got very quiet as Kanepi came back in the second set.

      Fingers crossed! I’m hopeful since the top seeds, especially Halep, Kerber, and Muguruza, dropped out, but I know anyone can surge.

    For Butina: “$1 million to help broker the sale of Russian jet fuel to an American middleman. All she had to do was secure the fuel.” (NYT). NRA former president and wife worked with Maria Butina selling jet fuel. Thus Butina came to the attention of the FBI and clearly linked the NRA and Russia… “The NRA has been waving the flag and screaming about the Second Amendment while taking cash from Putin.” (Easley)

    • September 3, 2018 at 10:53 am

      The takeaway from this scheme is that the Russians are deeply embedded in the conservative movement in the United States.

    • September 3, 2018 at 10:54 am

      “For years, Republicans have been trying to dumb down the Republican Party and America with their war on facts, education, and intelligence. Donald Trump is their crowning achievement. The scheme that the former NRA president, his wife, and Butima were trying to carry out was dumb, but it also shows the level of corruption that has infiltrated the conservative moment….Trump isn’t the exception. He is the rule, and those flags that the NRA likes to wrap themselves in were paid for with Russian Rubles from Putin.” (Easley)

      While Trump is killing off people of color, I want to know how many wealthy Russians have been given citizenship by Trump. I feel strongly (and I stress ‘feel’ after closely observing my own neighborhood) that such people have been fanned out across the country. There i said it.

    • September 3, 2018 at 11:34 am

      Lest it may seem that I grew up inherently anti-Russian, I want to say that I studied Russian in high school. Times is changed.

    Just watched PBO’s speech at John McCain’s funeral on the last thread. I had listened to it in real time on NPR, but wanted to see it and hear it again. It made a good start of the day on this Labor Day that I am on a liquid diet with medication to get ready for tomorrow’s colonoscopy appointment. No outside activities for me today.

      -Any federal worker is required to give their complete work history. Standard Form 171.
      -With a professor job you’re expected to provide CV, refs, educational history, comprehensive publication history, teaching history, history of pubic speaking, conferences, technical reporting, student advising, history of reviewing publications, history of board membership, and persons to write letters of recommendation.
      -Thus for the top US legal position, a lifetime position – the above (which btw includes all papers) are required.

    Brightness from Charles Pierce article too good to miss: “The Attack on Labor Itself Begins Tuesday”.
    “But there is stirring out in the country. Pro-union candidates are winning primaries, the latest being Andrew Gillum in Florida. In Wisconsin, both Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers and his running mate, Mandela Barnes, are running specifically against rolling back the anti-union measures enacted by incumbent Scott Walker, the goggle-eyed homunculus hired by KOCH Industries to manage this particular midwest subsidiary. In Seattle, as the Seattle Times reports, unions are preparing to celebrate the centennial of the great 1919 general strike in that city with a renewed sense of purpose.”

      King McConnell deemed some of Kavanaugh’s history “committee confidential”. And took 100,000 off table previously cleared by Bush.
      Agree with Ms. Ifill: No Hearing. And No Vote. Extreme nominee’s critical background is actively concealed by compromised GOP leaders.
