FYI - You're fired

Don Surber tells the sad tale of the Murphy Brown reboot - catch it before it's gone.
CBS discovered that Candace Bergen's weekly half hour of politically charged sarcasm from the 1990s has no place in the 21st century, where snark -- like porn -- inundates the Internet.
Plus with cable Fake News channels galore, who needs 30 minutes a week for an Orange Man Bad fix?

Welcome back, Jesse

Jesse Kelly is back on Twitter.
No hard feelings, right?
Please tells your Senator friends that.
Does anyone think Jesse Kelly would have had his account restored if he didn’t have lots of high profile people on the right willing to talk about his situation? I think Twitter looked at the reaction and decided retreat was their best option, but that doesn’t mean they’ve learned anything from this. How long before they decide to ban someone else on the right, instantly and without explanation? Not every person who gets banned is going to have the benefit of a segment on national television to help change Twitter’s mind.

One ugly guy

The Other McCain has the story of a guy who says he's a woman and got a woman suspended from Twitter for questioning the man's thoughts that's he's a woman.
It's not a pretty picture.

Free Jesse

Twitter banned Jesse Kelly over the weekend.
Everybody is talking about it, including Kelly.
Ban doesn't seem to be working.
Censorship is a horrible thing, but it has one fatal flaw: It doesn’t work. Voices break out. They cannot be contained. Twitter banning me from their platform only hurts them in the long run. They’ll continue to marginalize themselves, and I will continue to grow.
I enjoy talking politics, and I enjoy entertaining people. I don’t need Twitter to do it. I’ve a got a successful radio show. I’m blessed to have a network of friends who share and promote each other’s ideas.

Making Trump's point

Remember the media talk that the caravan headed north wasn't an invasion?
Just people fleeing violence for a better life?
Sunday, some of those people threw rocks at United States border patrol agents.
Maybe Trump wasn't trying to scare people before Election Day.
Maybe he was telling what he wanted to avoid at the border.

Count your marbles

Iowahawk has a way to determine the best college football team - if you can keep up with the marbles.
Notre Dame leads the pack, but will get passed after next week's conference championship games.

No kidding

Look across Europe, and you'll see political leaders with no children of their own.
One of the benefits of parenthood is the daily confrontation with free will—a human nature. Parents may have their child's life, career, and happiness planned out, but a child has other ideas -constantly. Love, patience, teaching, negotiating, scolding— nurture—can help direct the child, but the overwhelming otherness of the child is undeniable. They are not blank slates upon whom the parent exercises his will.
Political leaders without this experience of parenthood may be susceptible to the idea that people are blank-slates, interchangeable units of human capital. As a parent and a teacher, I have seen many brilliant and well-meaning parents and colleagues crash their will and intellect against the rock of a child's independent nature. Now, scale such a hubristic paternalism to a nation. Or a continent.

Just a bad bounce

Virginia came oh so close to beating Virginia Tech Friday.
The Cavaliers led by seven in the waning minutes.
The Virginia Tech running back fumbled right before the end zone, and a Virginia player was closest to it.
He could have fallen on it.
He could have knocked it out of the end zone for a touchback.
But it bounced away from him, right to several Hokies following the play.
Tie game.
Then in overtime, it was first and 10 at the 14.
A touchdown wins.
A field goal ties.
But a turnover ends the game with a loss.
That's what happens.
When you haven't beaten a team since 2003, those kind of things will happen.
It's wait 'til next year time.

Quite a shot

Newsweek reports on scientists thinking an asteroid destroyed Sodom.
Minerals that suddenly crystallized in blistering heat support the concept, archaeologist Phillip Silvia, of Christian institution Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, told the conference. Silvia and his colleagues have been excavating the city for more than a decade, Science News stated.
Or maybe God had good timing.

As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly

On my God they're turkeys.

What will the limping waterfowl do?

DaTech Guy wonders about the lame duck session of Congress.
Will we discover that those who proudly called themselves conservatives, devoted to life, protectors of the 2nd amendment, opposed to mob rule, defenders of due process, defenders of our border and supporters of the military that protects us.
Or will we discover that they have simply holding a place in the hopes of a better offer, either as a lobbies or on the board of a company rewarded by the laws passed by them.

I didn't know she was in trouble.
And over the weekend, it looked like she might have enough votes to snag the victory.
Hopefully we'll see her in 2020.

Dear Kurt

Kurt Schlichter has dating advice for those who need it.
Just get off the electronics. Talk to people. Try it. Yes, if you say “Hi, my name is Kaden. Would you like a drink?” at least 17% of the recipients of this polite inquiry will blow their rape whistles and preemptively wet themselves. But this gives you important information – that person is an idiot. Go talk to the next one.

Adulting is hard

Will the White House press corps behave itself under the new rules?
Sarah Sanders today issued rules of conduct for White House reporters. Everyone in the press room should be embarrassed because like kindergartners, they have to be told to share the microphone and take turns asking questions.

What to watch

Need something to binge-watch, especially with the holiday looming?
The Other McCain recommends Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan.
The producers do a good job of pacing the show, so that each of the eight episodes builds to an exciting climactic scene and, by the time you’ve binge-watched your way to the end (my wife and I watched the final four episodes Saturday night), a lot of details in the early episodes that may have seemed irrelevant are revealed as important foreshadowing. It is no mere coincidence, for example, that Jack Ryan’s love interest, Dr. Cathy Mueller, is an epidemiologist concerned with an ebola outbreak. But hey, no spoilers.

Work to be done

The Republican Standard lists the things the lame duck Congress needs to do in the next few weeks.
If they don't?
Trump’s “Lame Duck” session with a Democratic majority in the House, on the other hand, will undoubtedly be loud, both figuratively and literally, presumably. Possibly though, he could take a page out of his predecessor’s commander-in-chief handbook and get some things done on The Hill. After all, he’s got a “phone and a pen.”

In trouble, and how

Kimberly Strassel looks at how the mid-term election impacted Elizabeth Warren's future hopes.

Dealing with Democrats

Before the results came in Tuesday, Althouse has an idea what to expect from President Trump.
Our trickster President has plenty of tricks up his sleeve.

Monday, November 5, 2018

Waiting on Wednesday

What will Wednesday bring?
Powerline has an idea.
I still say the worst nightmare for Democrats will be to capture the House by a narrow majority. Their base will demand impeachment and fireworks from oversight hearings. They are likely to be disappointed, and then frustrated and bitter, setting up Trump to cruise to re-election in 2020. You think liberals are miserable and paranoid now!

Undefeated team watch

No team will finish the 2018 campaign without a loss.
The Los Angeles Rams made it to 8-0 before falling to New Orleans on Sunday.
The 1972 Miami Dolphins celebrate their place - alone - in NFL history once again.

Don't be shy

Are polls understating the support for Republicans?
Would you answer an unidentified person's questions about your preference?
Nixon had his "silent majority" at a time much like this one. The country was tearing itself apart over Vietnam and Nixon was the target of almost as much liberal vitriol and hate as Trump has been. The reason pollsters may be wrong again this time is that these "shy Trumpers" have been conditioned these last two years to keep their opinions to themselves so they don't get screamed at by their friends and relatives. There is a price to pay when bullies attack you for saying something halfway nice about the president. It's not pleasant.

Find your wave

Don Surber looks at the potential numbers for Tuesday.
The blue wave is real. Democrats could get 10 million to 20 million more votes in Senate races than Republicans do.
But the red wave also is real. At a minimum, they will increase their Senate majority by one.

In unity, to dwell in unity

Kurt Schlichter wants unity.
On his terms.
Unity means not just accepting that Donald Trump is our president but the fact that he has a moral right to pursue the policies that he promised the people who elected him.
Unity means our elite not being jerks, and that’s why unity’s not in the cards anytime soon.


Powerline features a video of media figures saying "Trump has reached a tipping point," over and over again since he became president.
Some clever person put together this montage of the media claiming routinely since January 20, 2017 that a “tipping point” had been reached, that the newest “bombshell” was curtains for Trump, that “the walls are closing in.” Talk about fake news. Heh. Enjoy this—we’ve got a long way to go yet.
