Quick hits

Donald Sterling: not a handsome devil, certainly not at this point.  This is what it’s come to with 80 year old billionaires?  To have a hot young girlfriend you have to accept you’ll be cuckolded, and the game then is to try and keep it discreet….so that you can have a hot young girlfriend that you have the privilege of supporting?  No thanks….

Donald Sterling’s girlfriend:  Not attractive, she looks like a space alien that’s had plastic surgery.  I’m mindful that when you travel in these rich circles you adopt their styles, which is high fashion groupie  trashy of a sort.  But it’s not attractive.  I’ll take “Midwest farmer’s daughter’ types any day.  I like Kate Upton a lot.  But who doesn’t, as my wife says.

Byron Smith – http://m.startribune.com/news/?id=257169671&c=y. He’s creepy.  Actually though Ms. Reporter, I don’t have any sense “Smith had become a symbol in the countrywide debate over so-called castle doctrine laws, raising questions about how far a homeowner can go to defend himself and his property.’

Benghazi – of course they lied their asses off.  Ya’ll can admit it now.

    Seriously? Benghazi?

    BDS (Benghazi Derangement Syndrome)=GOP.

    you guys are nuts. I think it is a great idea to spend more money and waste more time on this topic right before the midterm elections. Maybe it will take everybody’s minds off how incompetent/wrong the GOP has been on the entire Obamacare issue.

        This whole thing is bullshit. There is no There there.

        no smoking gun, no cover up, nothing except right wing crazy paranoia and conspiracy addled brains at work. And a desire to play partisan politics, gin up Fox viewers, damage Hillary Clinton, and try to impeach Obama (remember how that worked out last time?).

        The GOP is making itself a laughingstock, yet again. Break out the tin foil hats, everyone!

      In terms of events, that’s not a bad parallel.

      Did the Reagan administration then makeup a fairy tale causality / etymology then like the Mohammed video?

        They did follow CIA talking points, just as the Obama Administration did. And they also spun things (Mike Deaver and Roger Ailes). Oh, and Bill Casey who ran the CIA was a huge Reagan politico–ran his presidential election campaign! Hard not to call the CIA “politicized” there!
