Pander: (intransitive verb) To cater to the lower tastes and desires of others or exploit their weaknesses.
Partisan, like announcing the verdict before the hearing, on a straight partisan basis.
I believe he already did the Constitution during the Garland nom.
Well done. So apt for the moment.
Warren really gets to you Rameriz — just like Hillary did. And yet, I bet you’ll assure us you don’t have a misogynistic bone in your body. And yet, here you are.
I can only imagine how immune Trump will feel after he is exonerated by Mitch’s “Show Trial”. You thought he was bad before, just wait.
Oh yeh, lets get into another mid-East war, they always turn out so well for the country. Well, maybe except for the TRILLIONS of dollars wasted, that could have been used on infrastructure and health care, and addressing climate change.
Oh well. Do you think Henry realizes he is mirroring going down with the bomb in “Dr. Strangelove”???
Nice humble brag, but it does illustrate the point that there is information out there, if someone is willing to put in the effort, but the vast majority of people no longer have a trusted (supposedly) neutral source to give a quick, broad outline. Papers could do that, to varying degrees, but were far more subject to political bias than people seem willing to remember. This was true even before certain right wing money bags decided to try to own every paper they could get their hands on. Publishers and editorial boards were right leaning for the most part, but not as willing to be full on committed to a party as many new boards are. Bless Roger Ailes for showing them the way to giving up caring about maintaining the fiction of the “fairness doctrine”. What’s missing now is any illusion of “fairness” in reporting.
Nostalgia probably applies even to the major TV network news rooms, which, short of Walter Cronkite, weren’t as unbiased as people believe — with the bias being more in the editorial room before broadcast more than on the air. Literate people forget that the majority of Americans didn’t follow or care about news that didn’t have immediate impact on their lives and still don’t.
Amusing that the one on the right uses “commie” as an epithet. “Hey, Putin’s all right, now that he’s a billionaire mob boss (like OUR one true leader), but you’re a socialist who wants to rob from the rich to give to the poor.”
The logic of the right is impeccable.
Sadly we all know the fix is in: the Senate GOP (Greed Over People) members will act as a jury of his peers (being just as venal, corrupt, and amoral), acquit him and Varvel will take it as a win. So much winning. So. Much. Winning.
