U.S. Politics: Attaquer son cul orange!

Is this unusual these days? Don't many judges now want psychological evaluations and other data presented to them about a defendant before they hand out a sentence? Getting those evaluations done doesn't happen overnight. 12 weeks doesn't seem outlandish to me for scheduling evaluations and analysis and giving the judge time for some deliberation after reading those. 

Plus most judges have so many other cases they need to hear that it takes time for a matter to get back on their schedules again.

These rethugs bludgeoning-bullying her with a spew of words are left with her reasonable response, "Is there a question in there?" given in such a soft, polite voice.

Taken aback, time goes by while the rethug bedbug tries to figure out what he was asking, what point he was trying to make.

What flat-out ignoramuses.  As well as bullies.

Additionally, those who wanted some dramatic interest, there sure does seem to be quite a bit today.  Yup, he smeared her, threatened her and lied about her, and is doing so even as she speaks in response to the idiocies spewed at her.

The Dems, of course, are so measured and polite.

Gads how many women have we seen grilled for hours and hours by all these old white insane guys, all of whom turn out not guilty of anything they are accused of.  Hillary, while campaigning, for 13 hours -- on her feet!  And they never lose it, stay in control, while all around them are saliva-spitting spewers, all day, one after another, who also, btw, are sitting down.

More reasons the stupid Dem donor class should be smarter than this:

The plot thickens:

Quote

David Holmes, the state department aide who overheard President Donald Trump's conversation with the US ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, said that Sondland told Trump that the Ukranian President would do "anything you ask him to," and that he confirmed the Ukrainians were going to "do the investigation."

"Sondland told Trump that (Ukrainian President Volodymyr) Zelensky 'loves your ass,'" Holmes said, according to a copy of his opening statement obtained by CNN. "I then heard President Trump ask, 'So, he's gonna do the investigation?' Ambassador Sondland replied that 'he's gonna do it,' adding that President Zelensky will do 'anything you ask him to.'"

Why is Stone's sentencing not until Feb 6?  What could the court be doing that requires 2 and a half months?

Giving him time to have his Nixon tattoo removed? I hate to think what that would trigger when he is in the communal shower in prison.

Heard this part on the drive home today (was it Jordan?) Would have been funny if Nunes and Jordan weren't such gross bootlickers.  Nunes reading that phonecall like it was THE phone call.  His whole opening statement.  nutZ.

I was reading the state department aide David Holmes' statement to the house committee and I one hundred percent did not expect Jay Leno's name to pop up in the statement. And also the Kardashians.

( Holmes is the dude who heard Sondland's call to Trump. The statement also includes Sondland, Perry & Volker calling themselves 'the three amigos')

This stuff is so strange & quite damning.

Don't like making this comparison because it's not just race, but Patrick is essentially a repeat of Booker but he was a governor instead of a senator and has more direct ties to those dastardly rich people.  

Booker has ten times the charisma of Deval.

And the impeachment hearings go on - this time featuring a budget official:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/impeachment-investigators-question-budget-official-about-withheld-aid/ar-BBWRFYl?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=msnclassic

 

Why precisely Mr. Trump withheld the congressionally allocated funding in mid-July as he pressed Ukraine for politically beneficial investigations and what his acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, told the agency about the decision remain central unanswered questions in the inquiry.

 

Democrats leading the proceedings hope that the budget official, Mark Sandy, can at least offer a glimpse into deliberations at the Office of Management and Budget over carrying out the order.

Seems like Trump is having some medical tests done.  Many of the folks commenting think those should include psychological tests.  Might be a good avenue for democratic attack adds when the time comes: state flat out that Trump has Alzheimer's, backed up with unedited clips from his speeches and commentary from credentialed psychologists.  Trump will of course bluster and threaten and ultimately make tweets and speeches that lend credence to the adds.  But D's don't have the guts and I probably just ticked off half the board.

New Des Moines Register poll out has Buttigieg at 25, with Warren/Biden/Sanders at 16/15/15, respectively.  Well damn.  Also, for laughs, check out Bloomberg's favorables.

Was going to post this too.  It's feeling like he's a serious contender.  Of course, it's just Iowa, and one can see Pete being weak in South Caroline for sure.  But this is feeling like a really serious candidacy right now.  ETA:  I'm ashamed of the redundancy of these sentences.  

I am wondering if we're going to start seeing analysis along the lines of whether there's a "Bradly effect" with Buttigieg on how people will actually cast a vote for a gay person for president.  But it is kind of amazing how far we've come on that front in so little time.

Yeah I suspect there will be more questions added to polls if he solidifies frontrunner status in Iowa in the coming weeks.  That being said, I don't think this is the case with likely Iowa Caucus voters (particularly given the DMR's reputation), albeit it may certainly be a very big problem in other states.  Which, of course, is somewhat reflected in the difference between his Iowa and national support, so maybe it's already baked in.

In other news, the Louisiana Governor race is neck and neck - Rispone (R) is up 10k votes, or 0.8%, with about 80% of precincts reporting...

...and now Bel Edwards (D) is up by about 8k and change (.6%) with around 94% of precincts reporting.  Considering a lot of the outstanding precincts are in heavily Dem areas around New Orleans and Baton Rouge (and, to a lesser extent, Shreveport), looks like Bel Edwards will be reelected.

They were really hitting Rispone the last few days with an ad about his company getting a multi million dollar tax break and creating like 12 jobs out of it. 

Edit: Starting to see some sites putting up that Edwards won re-election.

You can't reliably diagnose Alzheimer's just from cognitive tests. All you can say is someone has dementia, with the specific cause of that dementia not specified.

And I would be surprised if you can get many credentialed psychologists who are actually experts on dementia to say Trump has it. I haven't seen any good evidence myself -- most of his cognitive errors seem to me to be just the sort of things an extreme narcissist under stress would come up with, not the sort of errors someone with dementia makes.

lol. I just learned that the December Democratic debate is airing one or two days before the new Star Wars movie comes out in theaters. In December 2015 they actually aired the Democratic debate on the actual date the Star Wars film came out in theaters. At least the timing is slightly better now, but still it feels like dejavu. I remember people complaining about the timing of the debate because of an American Football match!

I said this then but it's worth repeating: political events on TV have been known to shift dates due to events in entertainment. In 2010 during the election in Australia, they chose a specific date to hold a televised debate so it did not coincide with an episode of Master Chef.

Question - why was the election held now? I thought elections were supposed to be on Election Day, but there were other elections recently as well.

You know what?, they never taught us this in Louisiana civics class in high school (I’m joking, there was no Louisiana civics class)

Edit: Sorry, I tried to look up why regular Election Day isn’t used for these, but I can’t find anything listing a specific reason. 

Maybe they’re just being nice and using a weekend because it makes more sense than a Tuesday?
