    WRT the concerns about the Orange Emperor trading secrets for a bag of tuna.

    1. I’m visualizing a nickel bag of tuna trading hands (snicker)

    2. Even with Secret Service protection, he’d be in Protective Custody because otherwise he’s going to be someone’s beeotch.

    Study: Same-sex marriage in 20 years had no negative effects.

    All good news and I’m not surprised, but ebven if there had been negative effects the government shouldn’t be dictating who people can marry.

  3. CSK says:

    Tuna? Hell. no. A bag of Big Macs? Now you’re talkin’.

  4. Franklin says:

    In relation to the lawmakers’ expenses and our apparent trajectory towards zero ethics whatsoever (seriously, are we trying to match the level of corruption seen in Russia and India?).

    Supreme Court gifts in three charts … my takeaway: over the past twenty years, Clarence Thomas has received the most value in gifts, over $4 million. It’s hardly worth mentioning anybody else, since no other justice even reached 5% of that total. But yeah, Alito came in 2nd at $170k.

    Alito came in 2nd at $170k.

    That we know of. Is Thomas more corrupt than the rest of them, or just more careless? I suspect at some point the GOPs will throw Thomas under his bus and claim the whole problem is solved.

  6. Jay L Gischer says:

    Republicans have bashed Schumer’s strategy as overtly political, even as the messaging votes have sparked heated internal debate over the best strategy for defending against them.

    Well, uh, guys, I didn’t think I would be the one to break this news to you, but you’re politicians. And you have some unpopular preferences.
