This 'n That - Friday Edition

You meet certain people who make you feel like … well … like this:



It doesn’t matter how young or old one is.  Inspiration helps.  Think about being that peron.

What to do if your team holds a losing hand but you don't want to fold?  Well, if you're a member of Congress, there's only one thing you can do.  You call for a Congressional hearing into the bad hand you've been dealt.  If that won't get you out of the hand, nothing will.  Plus, you get six months of face time on TV with zero consequences for anyone.  That's how Feinstein decided to handle the revelation that former AG Loretta Lynch directed James Comey to find Hillary Clinton innocent of federal crimes for her felonious use of a private email server while Secretary of State.  Here's the old pro doing her Washington two-step:




It would be funny if it weren't so sad.  Retire you much.

BTW, Mitch McConnell used a Senate maneuver that allows the proposed healthcare bill to be voted on without debate.  A simple up-down vote.  Clair McCaskill thinks this is horrible, given that the bill affects 1/6 of the American economy.  Question to McCaskill:   Why is there a health care law that impacts 1/6 of our economy? Might it have anything to do with your passage of Obamacare?  Or can you even think that far back?

You knew it was coming.  It was a Gay Pride parade until the marchers walked into a Black Lives Matter protest, which was moving straight toward them.  Things went downhill from there.



Good luck to Democrats as they seek to solidify their base.  Victims arguing over whose victimhood is worse.  It's like herding cats.

An older couple, both widowed, date for six months and then contemplate marriage.  He invites her to dinner so they can discuss the details.  After the meal, he raises the topic of living arrangements ... estate planning ... banks accounts ... furniture ... and the future disposition of assets.  All issues are resolved to their mutual satisfaction.  Toward the end, he asks the most intimate question of all.

My dear, how often do you prefer sex?

Infrequently, she replies.

Lowering the glasses on his nose, he peers above them and asks:  Is that one word, or two?

I hear Megyn Kelly is tanking over at NCB.  Not that anyone watches her anymore, which may have something to do with her ratings.  She started her NBC debut with a bombshell interview of Vladimir Putin, with bombed when he basically trolled her on air and laughed at her ignorance.  He had reason to mock her.  Her stupid questions were ... well ... stupid .. a case of the Peter Principle writ large. Now, two interviews later, she has dropped 42 points in the ratings.  Guess she should have stuck with FOX a while longer.  But egos are a hard thing to keep in check.  Oh, well, at one point she had pretty hair, a pleasant smile and was nice to look at. That's what happens when you take yourself too seriously and think you are better than you are.  She should never have tangled with Trump back in the primaries.



Oh, well.  Buh-bye Megyn
