We shall now count down the top 10 stories of the week, chosen as usual by Beyoncé:

1. Elizabeth Warren, We Love You So Fucking Much. You Are So Fucking Wrong Right Now. We were MAD AT HER.

2. Donna Brazile, WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU KIDDING. We were just asking.

4. Donna Brazile Wrote A Thing. Oh. She did. And it was bad.

5. Let’s Read Carter Page’s Batshit Testimony Together, While Wonkette Liveblogs It! WE SPENT SEVEN HOURS DOING THAT FOR YOU.

6. Papa John’s So Sad That Only Nazis Like Their Shitty Pizza Now. What exactly did they think was going to happen?

7. Congratulations, Chef José Andrés, You Win 2017. Because he is a HERO for what he’s doing in Puerto Rico.

8. What The Hell, Rand Paul’s Neighbor???? A story that still isn’t any clearer than the day we published it.

9. No. You Don’t Get To Kill Yourself. Neither Do I. A raw and honest story from yr KillerMartinis.

10. And finally, Meet Virginia (Where An Absolute GOP Bloodbath Is Happening, LOL). That was literally just an open thread with no information in it, that we stuck up while election results were coming in, and yet it was your TENTH FAVORITE.

So there you go. Those are your top ten most clicked upon stories, according to Beyoncé. They are very good stories!

    • Red Bird

      what kind of fluffball?

  • Saxo the Grammarian

    Evan’s “live-blog” of Carter Page’s testimony was epic. A Thanksgiving dinner of snark. That merited a Hamilton in the tip jar.

  • Martini Ambassador 🍸

    Pink is totally Donna Rose’s color. But heck, she’d be cute in just about any outfit or color.

  • Jeffocaster in the East

    So when is Trump going to be impeached? Can we get rotten peaches and throw them at him (with votes) instead? I read a story this AM about Takei…..oh the humanity. I got coffee. Wake me when it is over. (Can I go into cryostasis until Trump is gone?)

    • Mormos

      yeah saw the takei thing. sigh

      • Cosmic Owl

        It’s like when I realized Barry Bonds was a steroidal manic, a crappy team mate and a cheating SOB.

        Prior to knowing it, Bonds was one of my fave b ball players.

        It bummed me out.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      I don’t have to lecture THIS crowd about how you can really thank vets. By getting out there and voting for a better America.

      • I am all for voting for the peeps who are not keen on war, or at least, want to give vets proper bennies and not so much of our huge war budget to PDC

        • Villago Delenda Est

          My attitude is, if you don’t want to pay to take care of veterans, stop making them.

          Veterans are generally not keen on war.

      • Martini Ambassador 🍸

        Well, only if you think “thanking them for their service” means you actually want to ensure funding for things like healthcare, mental health funding, retraining programs, etc. Otherwise, the GOP is great for thoughts and prayers and showy displays at ball games.

      • sarafina

        You really thank vets buy paying your fucking taxes. ALL of them.

  • Joe Beese

    So George Takei has denied roofying that model back in 1981 – in a statement that strikes almost the perfect tone.

    The one sour note was wrapping himself in the cloak of his 30 year partnership. Which is wholesome sounding but – come on, George – not probative. (Pardon the phrase)

    So I have him back as a question mark, pending further accusations.

    • Cosmic Owl

      Louis CK came clean and lost everything.

      And even then, some say he was not contrite enough.

      I dunno. How long are some of these fellas going to be tied to the public whipping post? Wait. Might need to rephrase that.

      Oh, I’ve no doubt some should be tied there and left to rot.

      And by all means, don’t elect pedophiles to the US senate.

      The whipping post is getting crowded!

      • theCryptofishist

        *starts installing two additional posts*

        • Cosmic Owl

          * hums ‘tied to a whipping post’ the entire time.

    • Mormos

      takei is one you dont want to be true. the accusation hurts to think about, but time will tell.

      • I didn’t want Kevin to be true either.

        • I never doubted the Spacey story.

          • Me either.

          • I also never doubted the first accuser to come forward against ex-mayor Ed Murray of Seattle.

        • Mormos

          i’ve always enjoyed spacey as an actor, but as a queer trekker, takei is much closer to my heart.

          i feel personally betrayed by this one.

          • Understood :huggles:

          • Cosmic Owl

            It hurts like fuck when the people we enjoy admiring stop being admirable.

            Or we discover they never were admirable (Bill Cosby, say) but conned their way into seeming to be so.

        • Cosmic Owl

          I never doubted Spacey being a creep.

          He plays them remarkably well too.

    • Victoria Ricola

      I’m more than willing to believe, I just wish there was something more concrete than a Hollywood Reporter/Fox News story. Has there been any legitimate reporting on this one?

      • Villago Delenda Est

        This is the thing…Roy Moore has been nailed against the wall, and this is agitprop in response. Faux Noise is a sewer. Everyone but Shep Smith involved in it should be banned permanently from spouting “news” ever again.

        • Agreed. The source is not very legit. BUT…..
          my gut is to believe accusers :/

          • Me too, but I don’t trust my gut so much anymore. I’ve had to go to court to fight against lies claimed about me (property dispute). I always thought if you were innocent and someone accused you falsely you’d shrug it off, that only guilty people would get upset.
            Not true. It inspires hi-level rage. Especially since the courts have to consider lies and truth as EQUAL until proved otherwise through evidence. Then, the accuser who purposefully lied faces zero consequences in most cases.

          • This is also true.
            And, in the court of public opinion, it rarely matters once the truth gets out anyway. Cause people made up their minds

          • Exactly.

          • Cosmic Owl

            People don’t care about the truth, they care about how they feel about what is being called truth.

          • Indeniable Ron

            Thus Colbert’s ‘truthiness.’ It turns out not to be the joke we thought it was.

          • Cosmic Owl

            Colbert nailed that perfectly, huh?

          • Indeniable Ron

            As he so often did. And does.

          • sarafina

            Interesting. I’ve always believed people believe what they want, but I was shocked by Joss Whedon’s betrayal of his wife and I did not want to believe Kevin Spacey was a predator. Now I’m disappointed, but I believe the evidence.

          • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

            So’s mine. But I’m not one to running off half-cocked on a J’Accuse without a little more to go on.

          • I wanted to do that, but then, I believe Moore’s accusers with only their word to go on. So I feel taking that stance would make me as bad as the Alabamians taking the one they are taking.
            Of course, George is not saying stupid shit like all bitches be lying and anyway I didn’t generally date teenagers, so there is that.

          • Or invoking Jesus, Joseph and Mary.

          • THAT was really awful. And further proof that the “moral” majority isn’t either.

          • It’s sickening.

          • What is sickening that they readily believed, and STILL believe, a fake story born on the internet about pizza basement pedo rings where there is no basement, but the moment one of “theirs” is accused by actual journalism, they are both shouting “fake news!!!” as well as “it isn’t that big a thing!!!!”

          • Cosmic Owl

            After hearing for a generation that all liberals and Dems are the spawn of Satan’s own strumpet from AM hate radio,
            some clearly had very little problem falling for a BS story about a pedophile ring run by Hillary.

            No thought required, just feelings.

          • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

            I think the problem I have here is there is no corroboration – he says he told other people, but none of them seem to have come forward to corroborate his story.

          • Victoria Ricola

            Right. So far we’ve seen very well-sourced stories about people with a pattern of behavior. I have yet to see that with Takei.

            And it’s not some fan thing either. I thought he was a decent guy, but I’m pretty indifferent if he turns out to be a creep and will be fine with seeing him go away, it’s really just about the difference in the legitimate sources between his story and the others.

          • sarafina

            And that’s a big part of why women were not believed for so long.

          • Cosmic Owl

            Trauma is bad enough, but when people say you are a liar about your experience, consider is trauma, cubed.

            A few addiction specialists point out that so much addiction – but especially for women – almost always has roots in sexual and/or emotional abuse.

          • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

            I admit that this one is a high-wire act, and I accept I will draw fire for where I’m putting my feet. But I can’t help it. My inclination is to take accusations seriously, but this one just feels…off somehow.

          • Victoria Ricola

            Yeah. Me too. I believe the victim, I just don’t trust the reporting sources and would hope that a more legitimate news outlet would pick up on it.

          • Villago Delenda Est

            My gut is to disbelieve people who are jumping on bandwagons.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      George comes across far more believable than Kevin Spacey did.

      • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

        He’s built up a lot of goodwill and credibility, plus he is extremely open about his private life due to his advocacy. The people I know on Twitter and have great faith in who have worked with him are standing by him. So right now, I’m putting it in the “Implausible, but not completely impossible” section.

        • Villago Delenda Est

          Well, “completely impossible” is something that Richard Dawkins has pointed out leaves you open to an infinitesimal chance that it might happen. Let’s just say unlikely in the extreeeeeeme.

          • Cosmic Owl

            I like Douglas Adams’ distinction between possible and probable in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galax, as Trillion points out to Arthur Dent:

            Anything is possible, but few things are probable.

        In my cabin in the woods.

        So fucking creepy. A cabin in the woods?!

        • Well, to be fair I’ve lived in cabins in the woods a good portion of my life. Never had a desire to sex it up with underaged boys (or girls) there, though.

        Funny, it’s everything else about my Beautiful that makes her pretty; like her sense of humor, her moral support, her generosity and outgoing nature, and that’s what I appreciate about her. Guess I’m trying to hard.

        Is Moore saying he was under a different ‘face’ when he was molesting children, or something?

        • Ricky Gay

          Or a defense of ‘liking em young?’ 🤢
          I was never good with Moore’s Code…

    • Cosmic Owl

      I’d call it kooky talk, but it’s coming from a sexual predator, and it’s disturbing as fuck.

      Srsly. Chomo Moore is one messed up dude.

    • She is pretty and I appreciate that. You wonder how they stay so pretty.
      Fuck that is some dumb shit.

    So much other crazy crap happened I forgot about Brazile.

    • Cosmic Owl

      She was on Real Time last night, and I’m not so annoyed with her now.

      Still, she should never say ‘rigged’. That’s a Trump cuck thing.

      She did – and very very happily so – say mother fucker’ almost immediately to the GOP for fucking with her words.

      But Still.

      • sarafina

        Too little, too late, and she should have known better. It’s not like she was in politics only two weeks.

      • The GOP did not fuck with her words. They quoted her directly.

    Yep, Putin looked me in the eyes, by the way, beautiful eyes, like an eagle, the best, and repeatedly told me he did not meddle. He did not meddle. And I believe him.

    Here is the entire BS. Our Prez is nuts. Like someone will believe him OR Putin. Heh.
    https://www.rawstory.com/2017/11/trump-defends-putin-over-russian-meddling-in-election-he-says-i-didnt-do-that-and-i-really-believe-that/?comments=disqus

    “Asked, “Did Russia’s attempts to meddle in US elections come up in the conversations?” Trump replied, “He said he didn’t meddle, he said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times.”

    “I just asked him again,” the president continued. “He said he absolutely did not meddle in our election, he did not do what they are saying he did. Well, look, I can’t stand there and argue with him, I would rather have him get out of Syria, I would rather get to work with him on the Ukraine rather than arguing about whether or not… that whole thing was set up by the Democrats. Look at Podesta, look at all the things that they have done with the phony dossier. Those are the big events. But Putin said he did not do what they said he did. But we have a good feeling toward getting things done.”

    • BosGrl

    The thing is, how do toddlers know things like what is amazing. I mean, how much basis for comparison do they have? And they’re generally right. This always puzzles me.

    • Cause their little heads are not chocked full of comparison I think, so they can better appreciate what amazes them

      • theCryptofishist

        Not jaded, also, too.

        • Villago Delenda Est

      Not a comparison, just amazing.

      It could be she heard someone else say it in the recent past and she just liked the sound of the phrase and wanted to try it out herself. Bright, verbal kids do that. Which is why good parents are always mindful of what they say around their toddlers.

        Reminds me of a story one of my co-workers told me a few years ago about her little boy -an embarrassing public incident for which they only had themselves to blame…. ( TL;Won’t tell )

    • data_ninja

      Not sure if I told this one before: Brought a bunch of seashells for my friends daughters in a bag for them to have. I began sorting them in two piles, chipped/broken ones and non-broken ones. The oldest daughter (maybe 6 at the time?) asked me why I was putting them in two piles. I told her that it was because these were the pretty ones and these were the broken ones. She went straight to the broken pile and said “but they’re all pretty”.

          It’s the hair, all you see is the color. White hair = old in our brain,
          I have a friend who is quite beautiful, but has a huge mane of white hair. I thought she looked old until I really looked at her face, and realized she was not.

      • I don’t care if people know my age. Is that still a thing? My 61 year-old boyfriend has no grey hair and draws amazed looks whenever he’s asked to disclose his age. Granted, the first time I told someone I was 56 (I have only a few strands of grey) and it drew no raised eyebrows, my feelings were hurt, but I got over it.

    I think we have some news, now:

    Mr. Trump heaped disdain on the former leaders of three American intelligence agencies — John O. Brennan, the former C.I.A. director; James R. Clapper Jr., the former director of national intelligence; and James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director he fired this year — appearing to suggest that they were less trustworthy than Mr. Putin.

    “I mean, give me a break — they’re political hacks,” Mr. Trump said.

    • Red Bird

      I literally hate Donald Trump right now.

      I got into a heated argument with some clown on facebook who was defending C.K. stating that the victims should have not gone into his room and were thus culpable because of where they were. After trying such analogies as you’re not at fault if you get rear ended by a drunk because you should know better than to be driving late at night, I came to the startling realization that I was actually arguing with someone who was defending a guy who spontaneously spanked his monkey in front of five woman. What was I thinking. Lesson. Don’t Merlot and facebook.

        • That is how Republicans work. They know their power trip is limited, so they do as much damage as possible. That way, when the next Dem has to clean up and it takes a while, they can go “Seeeee??? Look how bad things are! They suck!”

      • Zonath

        Maybe, since the bar for impeachment of judges is that they “hold their offices during hood Behaviour”, which Congress generally gets to judge, but the impeachment of sitting judges for what would likely be viewed as political reasons could end up provoking a Constitutional crisis, even if they do occupy seats that were essentially stolen via the Senate’s obstruction.

          • They have a couple good songs. That one just isn’t one of them.
            That was the beginning of the “It is ok to be proud of being us because we are awesome!!!!” shit. No introspection, no need to make up for past mistakes or even own them, just fuck you, we are cool cause we say so.
            I turn the radio whenever that song comes on, and it is a lot.

          • little miss high and mighty

            sad to hear it sung along to in Oktoberfest here in(near, us) Munich esp. when Festival guests-of color are present in the tent.
            we went outside and , yeah such a song to one unfamiliar with the words seems rockin cool but to me it’s racist predictables baiting their ultra lefty manager and his snooty hippy pals in the jazz scene.

  • Bub, the cynical zombie

    For Remembrance Day, as we call it here in Canada:

    Dreamers
    By Siegfried Sassoon
    Soldiers are citizens of death’s grey land,
    Drawing no dividend from time’s to-morrows.
    In the great hour of destiny they stand,
    Each with his feuds, and jealousies, and sorrows.
    Soldiers are sworn to action; they must win
    Some flaming, fatal climax with their lives.
    Soldiers are dreamers; when the guns begin
    They think of firelit homes, clean beds and wives.
    I see them in foul dug-outs, gnawed by rats,
    And in the ruined trenches, lashed with rain,
    Dreaming of things they did with balls and bats,
    And mocked by hopeless longing to regain
    Bank-holidays, and picture shows, and spats,
    And going to the office in the train.

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      Then there’s this one, about those left behind:

      Patterns By Amy Lowell

      I walk down the garden paths,
      And all the daffodils
      Are blowing, and the bright blue squills.
      I walk down the patterned garden paths
      In my stiff, brocaded gown.
      With my powdered hair and jewelled fan,
      I too am a rare
      Pattern. As I wander down
      The garden paths.

      My dress is richly figured,
      And the train
      Makes a pink and silver stain
      On the gravel, and the thrift
      Of the borders.
      Just a plate of current fashion,
      Tripping by in high-heeled, ribboned shoes.
      Not a softness anywhere about me,
      Only whale-bone and brocade.
      And I sink on a seat in the shade
      Of a lime tree. For my passion
      Wars against the stiff brocade.
      The daffodils and squills
      Flutter in the breeze
      As they please.
      And I weep;
      For the lime tree is in blossom
      And one small flower has dropped upon my bosom.

      And the splashing of waterdrops
      In the marble fountain
      Comes down the garden paths.
      The dripping never stops.
      Underneath my stiffened gown
      Is the softness of a woman bathing in a marble basin,
      A basin in the midst of hedges grown
      So thick, she cannot see her lover hiding,
      But she guesses he is near,
      And the sliding of the water
      Seems the stroking of a dear
      Hand upon her.
      What is Summer in a fine brocaded gown!
      I should like to see it lying in a heap upon the ground.
      All the pink and silver crumpled up on the ground.

      I would be the pink and silver as I ran along the paths,
      And he would stumble after,
      Bewildered by my laughter.
      I should see the sun flashing from his sword-hilt and the buckles on his shoes.
      I would choose
      To lead him in a maze along the patterned paths,
      A bright and laughing maze for my heavy-booted lover,
      Till he caught me in the shade,
      And the buttons of his waistcoat bruised my body as he clasped me,
      Aching, melting, unafraid.
      With the shadows of the leaves and the sundrops,
      And the plopping of the waterdrops,
      All about us in the open afternoon
      I am very like to swoon
      With the weight of this brocade,
      For the sun sifts through the shade.

      Underneath the fallen blossom
      In my bosom,
      Is a letter I have hid.
      It was brought to me this morning by a rider from the Duke.
      “Madam, we regret to inform you that Lord Hartwell
      Died in action Thursday sen’night.”
      As I read it in the white, morning sunlight,
      The letters squirmed like snakes.
      “Any answer, Madam,” said my footman.
      “No,” l told him.
      “See that the messenger takes some refreshment.
      No, no answer.”
      And I walked into the garden,
      Up and down the patterned paths,
      In my stiff, correct brocade.
      The blue and yellow flowers stood up proudly in the sun,
      Each one.
      I stood upright too,
      Held rigid to the pattern
      By the stiffness of my gown.
      Up and down I walked,
      Up and down.

      In a month he would have been my husband.
      In a month, here, underneath this lime,
      We would have broke the pattern;
      He for me, and I for him,
      He as Colonel, I as Lady,
      On this shady seat.
      He had a whim
      That sunlight carried blessing.
      And I answered, “It shall be as you have said.”
      Now he is dead.

      In Summer and in Winter I shall walk
      Up and down
      The patterned garden paths
      In my stiff, brocaded gown.
      The squills and daffodils
      Will give place to pillared roses, and to asters, and to snow.
      I shall go
      Up and down,
      In my gown.
      Gorgeously arrayed,
      Boned and stayed.
      And the softness of my body will be guarded from embrace
      By each button, hook, and lace.
      For the man who should loose me is dead,
      Fighting with the Duke in Flanders,
      In a pattern called a war.
      Christ! What are patterns for?

        Tears.

        • puredog

          It seemed that out of battle I escaped

          Down some profound dull tunnel, long since scooped

          Through granites which titanic wars had groined.

          Yet also there encumbered sleepers groaned,

          Too fast in thought or death to be bestirred.

          Then, as I probed them, one sprang up, and stared

          With piteous recognition in fixed eyes,

          Lifting distressful hands, as if to bless.

          And by his smile, I knew that sullen hall,—

          By his dead smile I knew we stood in Hell.

          With a thousand fears that vision’s face was grained;

          Yet no blood reached there from the upper ground,

          And no guns thumped, or down the flues made moan.

          “Strange friend,” I said, “here is no cause to mourn.”

          “None,” said that other, “save the undone years,

          The hopelessness. Whatever hope is yours,

          Was my life also; I went hunting wild

          After the wildest beauty in the world,

          Which lies not calm in eyes, or braided hair,

          But mocks the steady running of the hour,

          And if it grieves, grieves richlier than here.

          For by my glee might many men have laughed,

          And of my weeping something had been left,

          Which must die now. I mean the truth untold,

          The pity of war, the pity war distilled.

          Now men will go content with what we spoiled.

          Or, discontent, boil bloody, and be spilled.

          They will be swift with swiftness of the tigress.

          None will break ranks, though nations trek from progress.

          Courage was mine, and I had mystery;

          Wisdom was mine, and I had mastery:

          To miss the march of this retreating world

          Into vain citadels that are not walled.

          Then, when much blood had clogged their chariot-wheels,

          I would go up and wash them from sweet wells,

          Even with truths that lie too deep for taint.

          I would have poured my spirit without stint

          But not through wounds; not on the cess of war.

          Foreheads of men have bled where no wounds were.

          “I am the enemy you killed, my friend.

          I knew you in this dark: for so you frowned

          Yesterday through me as you jabbed and killed.

          I parried; but my hands were loath and cold.

          Let us sleep now. . . .”

    • Something delightful by Stephen Crane:

      In Heaven
      BY STEPHEN CRANE
      XVIII

      In Heaven,
      Some little blades of grass
      Stood before God.
      “What did you do?”
      Then all save one of the little blades
      Began eagerly to relate
      The merits of their lives.
      This one stayed a small way behind
      Ashamed.
      Presently God said:
      “And what did you do?”
      The little blade answered: “Oh, my lord,
      “Memory is bitter to me
      “For if I did good deeds
      “I know not of them.”
      Then God in all His splendor
      Arose from His throne.
      “Oh, best little blade of grass,” He said.

    In 1957, my late father joined the Navy, right after he graduated from high school. He served on the aircraft carrier Ticonderoga.

    (He did not meet Mom until after he was honorably discharged, BTW).

    This pic was taken in 1971, well after his service, but the ship does not look too different from the way it looked in the late 1950s (the angle deck had been installed before Dad joined).

      Modified WWII “Essex” class. I saw the “Intrepid,” a sister ship, in NYC in 2015, where it is docked in the Hudson river as a museum. Impressive sight, to a landlubber from Winnipeg. Almost all the watercraft around here have outboard motors.

      • bupkus231

        I’m pretty sure my brother served on the Intrepid, back in the early 60s ( he’s 14 years older than I am, so my memories of that time are hazy ).

      Tico at that time had been converted to a CVS (anti submarine carrier) Those aircraft, the S-2 were powered by R 1820-97 engines. Essentially the same engine that powered the B-17. It is said that Quonset Point Rhode Island and the CVS community was shut down by Nixon because Rhode Island didn’t carry him in the election.

    For those who think the Democratic Party has turned the corner this week, two words: Jon Ossoff

    • …what about him?

    • You mean that race where they conveniently deleted all the data after they were sued over the results? Yeah, that didn’t seem hinky at all…

      • bupkus231

        Especially since the problems with Georgia’s election machines was known well in advance of that special election – and they refused to fix it…

        I know Schmannity has posted here before, but I kinda wonder what he’s thinking with this “reminder”

    • Resistance Fighter Callyson

      An inexperienced candidate ran a reasonably close race in a red district months ago when some people were naive enough to think Donald might become presidential?

      Not saying the Dems don’t have issues to address–we do–but I don’t see how Ossoff proves the party is in crisis or anything.

      • Carpe Vagenda

        In Newt Gingrich’s district?

      • schmannity

        I’m just saying that 5 months ago, the GOP was squawking that the Dems could not win in the age of Trump. It would have been hard to flip a red district in ordinary circumstances. Would he have won 5 months later under Slump? Who knows. It just goes to show that the Party needs a 50-State Howard Dean strategy on steroids.

        • 50 state for SURE.
          But idk if you are aware, but it would seem the DNC is broker than Trump, and Hillary had to pay off its debts.
          I do not think they have the money to pour in anymore. Therefore, it is up to us to ground up.

          I’m with you on the 50 states thing, that’s for sure.

      A special election in a strongly red district that we came close to winning and they deleted all the voter records and backups when they got sued over it?

        Seems suspicious to me.

    Asked directly if he believed Putin, Trump suggested he was keen to move on to other issues. “Look,” he said, “I can’t stand there and argue with him. I would rather have him get out of Syria, to be honest with you. I would rather … get to work with him on the Ukraine.”

    But moments later, Trump circled back to the issue of meddling, saying that Putin has repeatedly denied any involvement. “Every time he sees me he says I didn’t do that and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it,” the president said.

    Trump added that he thinks Putin “is very insulted by” reports that the Kremlin did, in fact, interfere in U.S. elections last year and that this is “not a good thing for our country.”

    • Yes. It is not a good thing for our country that a dictator feels insulted by intelligence reports of him fucking with us.

      China let Trump brag about a $250 billion deal.

      http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/09/investing/china-trump-business-deals/index.html

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/250_(number)

      As a Mandarin slang term, 250 (二百五 pinyin èrbǎiwǔ) is an insult meaning “stupid person” or “simpleton”. The expression is based on bàndiàozi (半弔子 or 半吊子). In ancient China, copper coins were grouped by stringing them together through the square holes in the center; originally 1000 was a unit of currency called a diao. Ban diao zi literally means half a diao (500 coins). Since modest Chinese scholars may call themselves ban diao zi to humbly deprecate their own expertise, ban diao zi is not necessarily a pejorative term. On the other hand, Er bai wu (250) is half of a ban diao zi and it is an insult.

    • William

      I think Donnie licking Comrades Vlads nuts on Veterans day in Viet Nam is some sort of message. So far I haven’t yet figured it out

    • Old Man Yells at Cloud

      The one person he won’t shit on is himself. He will wait to shit on others until he doesn’t need them. Once Lil’Donnie has grifted enough money from the presidency to pay what he owes to the Russian mob and doesn’t need Vlad’s protection, he’ll shit all over Vlad.

      • No he won’t, that is the thing. It would be infinitely better for him if he did, as I am sure his staff and maybe even his kids have told him.
        But he goes out of his way to defend him.
        Putin owns him. Only reasonable explanation.

      • TJ Barke

        I doubt it. Vlad will kill him.

    For my money, the best anti-war novel ever written:

    “He fell in October 1918, on a day that was so quiet and still on the whole front, that the army report confined itself to the single sentence: All quiet on the Western Front. He had fallen forward and lay on the earth as though sleeping. Turning him over one saw that he could not have suffered long; his face had an expression of calm, as though almost glad the end had come.”
    ― Erich Maria Remarque, All Quiet on the Western Front

    • William

      For my money the best anti war anything written was Alice’s Restaurant, but then again, I also thought my etch-a-sketch was a lap top.

    • John Thorstensen

      Some years ago I remember hearing a radio interview with one of the very last surviving combat veterans of the First World War — they are all dead now. This man, at something like 109 years of age, said that after a whole intervening lifetime, the horror of combat was just as vivid to him as if it had happened yesterday.

    Politico:

    “The worst part of this is not that Trump takes Putin’s word over the evidence based analysis of his own intelligence agencies. It is not even that he plays the role of a useful idiot as he kowtows to Putin yet again. The worst part, by far, is that a hostile power is engaged in an ongoing attack on America’s political system and Trump is deliberately stripping the nation’s defenses bare and leaving us exposed to future assaults. It is unilateral disarmament plain and simple,” said Thomas Wright, Director of the Center on the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution and an expert in national security. “We have never seen this type of weakness in a U.S. president before.”

    “Unilateral disarmament” is my favorite bit.
