    Running late. I feel on my knees last night, and into a split. I am feeling the pain today. Hope everyone is doing ok….

  2. NW Luna says:

    Lots of good Kavanaugh cartoons. He oozes dishonesty and privilege — makes my skin crawl.

    • Sweet Sue says:

      What’s with the gin blossoms on his face? I thought I was getting over my contempt for Condoleezza Rice. Wrong.

    Trump issues new order authorizing additional sanctions for interfering in upcoming U.S. elections

    President Trump issued a new order Wednesday authorizing additional sanctions against countries or individuals for interfering in upcoming U.S. elections, but lawmakers of both parties immediately said the effort does not go far enough. The order would allow Trump to sanction foreigners who interfere … The harshest sanctions outlined in the order would be up to the president’s discretion.

    As The Washington Post first reported in August, the order appears to be an effort to stave off bipartisan legislation that would mandate tough federal action.

    Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and Sen Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) immediately issued a joint statement calling the White House effort insufficient and calling on Congress to pass tougher legislation now.

    Rubio’s calling for tougher sanctions? Trump’s EO must be worthless. Sounds like nothing happens unless Trump feels like it, and of course he won’t lift a finger against Russian interference.

    Trump asked to have Braille removed from elevators in early 1980s, executive says

    Trump then told the architect to “get rid of it,” and the architect resisted, saying doing so would be against the law, she said.

    “Get rid of the (expletive) Braille. No blind people are going to live in Trump Tower. Just do it,” Trump told the architect, according to Res’s account.

    • quixote says:

      Get rid of Braille? Braille? It’s not even pink and in your face and ugly (unlike say the Dump).

      Aside from his absence of any humanity, he’s just so obscenely weird.

      • Sweet Sue says:

        He’s like Hitler and his inner circle. They, too, hated any sort of handicap. Remember that crippled people (the noun is despicable, the adjective is simply descriptive-I, for instance, am old but not An Old) and the mentally infirm were the lab rats for Zyklon-B. Apparently, being utterly heartless and soulless is attractive and WINNING.

    h/t to Delphyne. I could have missed this since Twitter now doesn’t show me all of the tweets from people I follow.
