  1. And yet Brienne stared at a candle for a season and still failed to save Sansa, and Yara failed to save her brother because naked Ramsay or dogs or something...

    German politics. Flinten Uschi defying the laws of gravity

    If by "to be expected" you mean "of course the lambs would vote for their butcher" then yes I agree. I don't know much about the other two, othe than anyone would be better than Scholz, but I honestly don't care anymore. Here's a nice summary of the failings of the SPD:

    US Politics: A Mickey Mouse Operation

    Fascinating. If this was the 1996 incident, then... well, I think it must have been between 1993 and 1994 (first two seasons) of B5, when a similar story was told about Ivanova. So maybe he stole the more or less witty riposte from the show.

    Please tell me whatever you're alluding to (reality? Show? Wrestling?) happened after the Nineties? (Or else Babylon 5 just stole that joke.) Sorry for OT.

    UK Politics: A Partly Political Broadcast

    Yes, Bercow's reasoning seemed sound. Of course I am no lawyer, much less in British constitutonal law, so there's that. At any rate, I'm going to miss him. He was by far the most entertaining thing in this never-ending drama...

    Bercow refuses to allow 'meaningful vote' on Brexit deal. “My ruling is that the motion will not be debated today as it would be repetitive and disorderly to do so”

    Let me guess, that's the guy people who think all the other politicians are liars will vote for, right? ETA: He did send a second letter emphasizing the extension was a big mistake.

    Is the wording significant when Prometheus said he wouldn't negotiate an extension? Technically it's rather an application than a negotiation, isn't it?

    Bercow said that was probably just a figure of speech. Gotta love that sneaky dude!

    Letwin amendment passes Boris Johnson thanks everyone for giving up their time but says alas the opportunity to have a meaningful vote has been passed up. He says he is not dismayed by the result. He continues in the strong belief that the best thing for the UK and the EU is to leave on 31 October. "I will not negotiate a delay with the EU and neither does the law compel me to do so." https://www.theguardian.com/politics/live/2019/oct/19/brexit-mps-vote-boris-johnson-deal-super-saturday-erg-tory-rebels-labour-live-news

    @Sophelia, you're in excellent company!

    Have a nice march! Am I the only one who's a bit skeptical about the UK enforcing EU customs?

    US politics - When the Barr's so low.

    After the debate, I think I would still prefer Warren, with Castro as VP. (I'm assuming she qould pick a younger male VP.) Best line of the evening: Castro, about caging kids at the border and letting ISIS prisoners run free. Runner-up: "If you were Kim Jong-Un..." People I hope will be gone soon: Gabbard, Yang, Buttigieg. Had never before heard of the billionnaire dude, so... huh. Nah, him, too. Btw., Buttigieg's little attack on Beto looked completely forced and artificial: Dude, I don't need no f-ing lessons in courage from you! Wanna taste of my courage?! Emabarrassing. Shut. Up. Did his advisors say he came across too soft, but he somehow missed a better opportunity to prove his manly manliness? Anyway, anyone would be better than T, Pence or - as warren put it so eloquently - whoever the republicans get stuck with. I'm not optimistic, though.

    US politics - When the Barr's so low.

    Another outsider here (but hey, Russia, China, and the Ucraine are happily allowed to interfere, but I don't get just one tiny vote?!). So... half-informed ramblings ahead. I'm about one hour in. Warren under massive attack but doing well and coming across as energetic. Clear, concise, reasonable. Biden hasn't majorly slipped up yet, so that's good for him, I guess. Bernie... if you were 20 years younger... And yes, that's unfair, but it is how it is. It's also unfair that women and black people have a harder time, so stand in line, please. Please step down and prove that those who believe you'd rather endorse another white male than the other leftist-ish opponent who has a chance to win the primaries by asking your followers to endorse Warren! (Yeah, who am I kidding.) Why does he never, ever look into the camera? Harris is clearly going for the women electorate, right from the start when she was quoting, if I didn't misunderstand (American accent, people talking fast), Mary Angelou. Buttigieg crawling into the rich people and corporations' behinds... Ugh. Sorry, you're not THAT cute. Yang has always annoyed me with his lame "... but look, let's be real..." schtick. Plus the term "freedom dividend" is just ridiculous. Klobuchar... go away. Although she did get a nice dig at 45 in ("That's the one moment he told the truth"). Harris is very amicable and into harmony this time around, she applying for the vice presidency? Booker beating the same drum ("we have one shot... I've seen that script before").
