@7 I don't take the needle report at face value. I was asking about the parking/residency. Not sure what the laws are in that part of town, but whether or not they are breaking the law by parking there seems relevant to the issue.
Jan 12 Jude Fawley commented on About Trump's L.L. Bean Tweet.
On a side note, there's a good This American Life episode about L. L. Bean's return policy, the lengths they go fulfill their absurdly generous lifetime guarantee; and the lengths people will go to return things (e.g. returning two-decade-old slippers, buying things up on Ebay, and returning them).

Not sure if this has anything to do with Trump...

Are they breaking the law?

Does anyone know what Patty Murray's justification for that vote was?
Jan 11 Jude Fawley commented on Bands I Pretended to Like for Boys. Part Five: Grateful Dead.
"Everything the Dead did was right on the edge of being hokey, right on the edge of veering off."

This statement explains, in a way I never really understood to myself, my ambivalence about the Dead.

For what it's worth, I love the acoustic stuff Jerry did (e.g. the albums with the mandolinist buddy, e.g. "Not for Kids Only"), but the jam-band sound just never excited me. Maybe it will in ten years...?
Jan 10 Jude Fawley commented on Intel Chiefs to President-Elect: Um, Dude, the Russians Have a Compromising Video of You Being Pissed On And/Or Near By Russian Sex Workers.
The pee stuff is too distracting... the biggest deal of the report is the claim that there was a "continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government". Not that this is new info (Mother Jones reported on it in October, I think) but if the intelligence community is backing the info, that takes things to a new level. If they have any supporting evidence of this, things are going to get very interesting between now and 1/20. I don't know what kind of interesting, but interesting.

@7 Meant to write "the dilemma we are NOW faced with" which means the opposite of what was typed.

@8 We'll see. You seem very sure about what the Dems will do, and how the GOP will respond, and then how the tables will turn on them. I'm not so confident - after last year, when so many experts, know-it-alls of all stripes were wrong about so many things, well, it's hard for me to feel so sure.

As others have said, this is the kind of thing that makes us liberals laugh and think we won; but the Republicans laugh and don't give a shit. One thing the last election taught them is that nobody cares how anything looks. That is, in fact, the dilemma we are not faced with: They CAN do whatever they want without consequences.

(I know those were not great titles, just a general idea...)

Maybe this is too gimmicky, but what if they followed up with sequels, as the actor ages?

Part II: Barak
Part III: Yes We Can
