I hope we can avoid the kind of hagiography he’ll be getting from the press. He was corrupt — check the Keating 5 scandal. He helped normalize the Republican Party’s derangement when he anointed Palin. He sacrificed his long-standing opposition to torture to stay in the good graces of Bush and, perhaps, protect his upcoming nomination for the presidency.

He was still far from the worst Republican in Congress, he dropped that fuck-you thumbs-down that saved, at least for a while, the ACA, and he certainly didn’t deserve to die of a rotten disease like cancer.

They’ll inevitably do a memorial resolution for him in Congress, and I sure as hell hope every Democrat votes in favor of it, because Trump will be pressuring Republicans to vote against it, and far too many of them will cave.

I forget who wrote it here earlier, but I agree with statement:

John McCain was a heroic serviceman, but he was a bad politician.

Then again, over 6 decades people do change, they get into situations that later turn different.

Hagiographies are to be expected at time of death. It’s how we handle death.

In a few years there will be serious biographies turning up, and they will include both the good and the bad.

My brother came down for dinner today and at one point said that sometimes he just wanted to get out of this whole part of the country. I said I understood, but what new was troubling him? Turns out he’d been golfing (he’s a hustler) with a fairly regular group of fish and one of them said that while he didn’t agree with lots of things McCain did, he respected the man for his service. My brother could certainly agree with that but probably not from the same angle. Then another member of the foursome said, “Well, hell, both of those Arizona senators are so liberal, what do you expect?” This met with universal approval except from my bro, who kept his own counsel. This is where we live, a Twilight Zone in which politicians like McCain and Flake are wild-eyed liberals.

He stood up for protesters that were gunned down in Andijan, Uzbekistan and the Rohingyas in Myanmar. He was one of the few Republicans who supported the intervention in Kosovo in 1999.

McCain drove me batty with his on-again/off-again maverickyness, and the fact that he gave Sarah Palin a national platform. But I always respected his service. Now, I’m thinking about how so many folks, on the left and the right, are so saddened by his passing. And I think about how when Trump dies, there will be nothing even remotely like this outpouring of love and respect.

MCCAIN: He served his country and not always right. Made a lot of mistakes. Made a lot of errors, but served his country. And I hope we could add honorably.

All true, but at the risk of a little levity on a night in which it might not be completely appropriate, I want to point out that fleecing is a finer art than simply grabbing every cent. Once I was a nonbetting fifth with a group of serious bettors including my bro. He hadn’t missed a putt all day, but on the eighteenth, he pushed a birdie putt a foot right. While we were tossing our clubs into the car, I asked what the hell had gone wrong. He explained that if he made the putt, he’d win $1,200. Missing, he won only $900. But if he’d won the $1,200, these two particular fish probably wouldn’t play him again for a couple of months. Whereas, losing only $900 (something psychological to do with the difference between three figures and four), they’d be back in a week or two drooling for a chance to get their money back. And I’m supposed to be the smarter sib.

Folks on Senator Sasse’s feed are spreading both QAnon nonsense and what purports to be a recording of John McCain selling out his nation during his time as a POW.

And for good measure, one commentator notes that Democrats only like McCain now because we can use his death to bash Trump.

I didn’t agree with most of McCain’s political positions. That does not mean I cannot respect his service in the Navy, the House, and the Senate.

I’m willing to believe that Senator McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin was born of ignorance instead of malice.

The moment I choose to associate with him is when he interrupted that lady to say the Barack Obama was a good man.

Article I, section 5 of the Constitution requires that a quorum (51 senators) be present for the Senate to conduct business. Often, fewer than 51 senators are present on the floor, but the Senate presumes a quorum unless a roll call vote or quorum call suggests otherwise.

The exact wording of article one section five says a majority of each House, since obviously there weren’t 50 states at the time. But it seems to leave out exactly what the majority means. Is that a majority of the seats or a majority of current members.

Kentucky preacher posts unhinged rant about children going to hell after walking by peewee football game (Raw Story)

Trimble was also angry at the 7-year-old girls who were cheerleading at the game.

“You think it’s something your little girl can dress up like a prostitute? That’s perversion out there whenever they shake their pompoms and shout and cheer and stuff. You need to get them in the house of God, friend,” he said. “Raise your family up in the house of God.”

As the woman who posted the video pointed out, the “prostitute” uniforms were a t-shirt and shorts.

The Washington media deifies McCain to a breathtaking extent, but the Trumpalos have declared open season on him. Also, said Trumpalos have abandoned all restraint on their behavior because that’s why they’re Trumpalos. So we’re going to see some disgusting venom coming out of pretty high profile Trump supporters that might actually penetrate the thick skulls of the Washington press.

And there’s the phone-it-in sympathies from yam’s minions: “My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of %DEAD_GUY%. Our hearts and prayers are with you!” At least he’s not doing a great job and getting recognized more and more.

All true, but at the risk of a little levity on a night in which it might not be completely appropriate, I want to point out that fleecing is a finer art than simply grabbing every cent. Once I was a nonbetting fifth with a group of serious bettors including my bro. He hadn’t missed a putt all day, but on the eighteenth, he pushed a birdie putt a foot right. While we were tossing our clubs into the car, I asked what the hell had gone wrong. He explained that if he made the putt, he’d win $1,200. Missing, he won only $900. But if he’d won the $1,200, these two particular fish probably wouldn’t play him again for a couple of months. Whereas, losing only $900 (something psychological to do with the difference between three figures and four), they’d be back in a week or two drooling for a chance to get their money back. And I’m supposed to be the smarter sib.

I see plenty of people across social media tonight posting the BS story about John McCain supposedly being the cause of the deadly fire aboard the USS Forrestal.

McCain had nothing to do with that fire. The US Navy quickly ascertained it was improper arming of an aircraft by enlisted aviation ordinancemen, which resulted in an unguided rocket to fire while the aircraft was on-deck, striking a fully fueled and armed aircraft ready to go on a mission.

In the subsequent explosion of that aircraft, its crew was immediately killed, along with a Chief Petty Officer who ran toward the aircraft with a fire bottle to put the fire out. Subsequent explosions of ordinance caused the fire to spread across much of the ship and many aircraft, killing many more and nearly causing the loss of the carrier.

While John McCain was stationed aboard the carrier at the time, he had nothing to do with the misfired Zuni rocket nor subsequent explosions.

I really get tired of that zombie lie about McCain.

The US Navy made a safety film about the fire, which at least when I was in every person in the Navy was required to watch. It deals with the initial rocket launch across the deck (which was captured on the ship’s plat camera, along with other footage showing personnel improperly handling the ordinance) and subsequent efforts both good and bad to contain the fire.

The last two days I’ve been seeing adverts on almost every video on YouTube for an outfit called CRTV. They claim they are a news network which counters “anti-American propaganda” (read news outlets and liberals).

You too can sign up for this fabulous service for the low price of $30 a month, which sounds like a conservative grift to me.

They have unbiased reporters such as Michelle Malkin, “Duck Commander” (Phil Robertson), Mark Levin (who owns it and is editor in chief), Gavin McInnes, Eric Bolling (who just joined), Steven Crowder, &c.

Amongst other things, they promote the idea that there is a “deep state” of Obama-era holdovers, and they are responsible (as balanced news journalists) to root out this cabal to undermine Trump. (For example in one case, they accused a State Department worker of undermining Trump with retweets of articles critical of Trump, without mentioning the same worker retweeted articles which were positive about Trump).

It looks like Mark Levin is trying to bring competition to OANN.

I was not aware this outfit has been around since 2016, but their advert blitz in the last couple days seems to indicate they got an infusion of cash from somewhere.

Levin runs this as part of his magazine Conservative Review.

re: #163 Big Beautiful Door

Are you sure Mike Pence wouldn’t count?

Good question. The only duty the Vice President has is President of the Senate and voting to break ties. He is a ceremonial member of the Senate.

“Quorum busting” has been used in the past (not showing up for votes, or leaving DC). This tactic has also been used in state senates (Wisconsin is famous for it).

As such, the US Senate has rules to prevent this.

In 1877, in response to proliferating filibusters that employed tactics designed to keep the Senate from attaining the 51 percent quorum needed to conduct business, the body amended its rules to allow the sergeant at arms, upon receiving Senate orders, to arrest members.

But what happened if senators, sitting in the chamber, responded to a quorum call and then refused to vote on the legislation before them? During a major filibuster in October 1893, senators demanded the yeas and nays for a vote, but then remained silent when the clerk called their names. The presiding officer announced that the necessary majority had not voted, even though there were enough senators in the chamber to make a quorum. When that officer again ordered the clerk to call the roll to determine if a quorum was present, a majority of members answered. But when the roll-call on the pending measure was then taken, the filibusterers declined to vote. In one frustrating forty-hour-long session, this tactic produced thirty-nine quorum calls, but only four votes.

Four years later, in 1897, the Senate agreed to a procedure that basically ended this delaying game. This prompted a return to the tactic staying away from the chamber.

Over the following decades, the Senate occasionally directed its sergeant at arms to arrest members. But the first openly physical act of compulsion did not occur until 1988. On February 24, 1988, in an attempt to establish a quorum on a campaign finance reform bill, Capitol police carried Oregon Republican Senator Robert Packwood into the chamber feet first at 1:17 a.m.

More on quorum busting at the US Senate Website:

senate.gov

167
Anymouse 🌹  Aug 26, 2018 • 3:37:09am

On quorum busting, I have no doubt that Mitch McConnell would order the arrest of Democratic members of the Senate to force them into the chamber (as was done with Bob Packwood in the example above). I also have no doubt McConnell would particularly enjoy having that order issued to the Capitol Police, and then use that as proof of Democratic obstruction in advertising for the upcoming election.

McCain drove me batty with his on-again/off-again maverickyness, and the fact that he gave Sarah Palin a national platform. But I always respected his service. Now, I’m thinking about how so many folks, on the left and the right, are so saddened by his passing. And I think about how when Trump dies, there will be nothing even remotely like this outpouring of love and respect.

This is because the sum total of Trump’s existence has been how much he can use other people for his own personal gain. Trump’s followers also follow a similar vein- how much they can use Trump (or any other political hack) to advance their own racist/tribal agenda. They don’t care who does it, or how it’s done. They simply want their White supremacy at any cost and care nothing about whomever provides it for them in the end.

I was reading Amy McGrath’s economic plan, since I’m canvassing for her today, and I’m impressed. For example, instead of pimping coal like virtually every other Kentucky politician, she actually talks about solar, and investing in smart energy grids and in making the transportation system friendlier to electric cars. It may have made an impression that the Legislature’s attempt to pass legislation to gut the solar energy industry failed because it was so unpopular, and this in a state where black “Coal keeps the lights on!” license plates are very popular.

If anything I think Democrats showed a lot of respect for his record and Dole before him.

Some important implications of McCain’s death. One, once Ducey selects a replacement, almost certainly a solid establishment Republican, the slight hopes of preventing the confirmation of Kavanaugh vanish, barring some unforeseen, extremely negative disclosure. Second, if the GOP can expand its Senate majority just slightly, say to 52 seats, they can make another run at repealing Obamacare, with a heightened likelihood of success, since there are only two reliable no votes.

And that’s who Trump will take his cue from.

No way Trump will be able to keep his mouth shut while the entire mediascape falls over itself praising McCain for days on end, all while he’s specifically banned from appearing at his funeral. He’s going to have a howling meltdown about it by Tuesday at the latest.

As the thread above noted, Milo’s fall from grace really accelerated the moment that he was banned from Twitter. That serves to reinforce the argument that the way to deal with hate and bigotry is to deprive it of a platform, rather than giving it greater exposure in order to “debate” with it as though it were a legitimate argument deserving of public discussion.

Thing is, I don’t doubt for a moment that if he hadn’t been caught supporting paedophilia, Milo would still be writing for Breitbart’s Mausoleum For The Chronically Unemployable (h/t Charles Pierce), his book would likely have been published and bought up by the alt-right, and he’d still be out there getting air-time in the far-right press. They didn’t care that he was a diva living off the money he pilfered from his witless followers, he was a self-hating homosexual who promoted the sort of hate and bile towards “the other” that they loved and that was what kept him relevant.

And that’s really it, how can you keep Milo living in his means when he’s tasted wealth? Even if you could argue that his skill-set was marketable, he’s so toxic that no self-respecting news outlet is going to touch him with a 40ft pole. What’s left likely isn’t much, so he’s gonna find out sooner rather than later that his lifestyle is unsustainable. Either he starts giving up portions of it or he finds himself standing in bankruptcy court, arguing to a judge why his mounting debts should be done away with because he totally owned the libs.

Gresham’s law (from the 19th century) states that bad money drives out good. That is even more true of speech. Giving dishonesty and lies an equal platform to truth diminishes truth and allows lies to flourish. What always troubles me about debates is that the clever, more eloquent speaker usually wins, despite the merits of their argument. That is even truer in a public forum where the audience usually doesn’t know the actual facts and can easily be swayed by style over substance.

When someone makes bold-faced lies, it’s hard to refute unless you have all the true details at your finger-tips and can cite a reputable source that conclusively refutes their assertions, especially when they don’t have to present documented evidence to support their statements.

John McCain was a very flawed but great man, whose courage can be matched by few of the other current members of the House or Senate. He was truly loyal to this nation, a statement that does not appear to apply to the other GOP members of the Senate, though Flake occasionally shows a spark of “concern”.

Denis Leary has remained relevant, if not necessarily a comedy giant.

I think an important part of being an edgy comic (or an edgy musician or writer or what-have-you) is having the wisdom to know that it’s hard to stay on the edge — those who do are either extremely good and remarkably fortunate. And if you can’t stay on the edge, it’s good to be able to transform yourself to keep afloat.

Anymouse answered the question pretty conclusively here. Short answer: it’s not a new trick, and Senate rules are good at stopping it.

While the Dow is not at an all-time high, the S&P 500 (along with the NASDAQ) did hit record territory. Or course, Trump believes that if Wall Street is rich, then everyone else is. His “tax cut” when combined with the increase in my employer health insurance resulted in my monthly take-home pay dropping by $10 per month.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the decision of congressional leaders from both parties Sunday, calling McCain “a great American patriot, a statesman who put his country first and enriched this institution through many years of service.”

McCain died Saturday evening after a year-long battle with brain cancer. He was 81.

No dates were announced for the ceremony at the U.S. Capitol, and McConnell said details would be provided in the near future. The McCain family is planning funeral arrangements, to include a full-dress service at Washington National Cathedral and burial in the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Md.

After a mass shooting, the Nazi right/GOP say laws can’t be enacted to stop such a crime.

After an undocumented immigrant kills someone, the Nazi right/GOP say laws must be enacted to stop such a crime.

We can’t legislate morality they claim when someome like Paddock or Roof goes on a shooting spree. Undocumented immigrant kills someone. They want every last undocumented immigrant deported and declare our immigration laws a failure. Fuckers.

Not radical, but deeply unrealistic. I mean, if he could get fired from the Bannon/Mercer enterprise, he’s pretty much unemployable.

That there still is arguments about this?

nobody argues over this

supposedly smarter people than this kid all missed that the exercise was to hack the servers that counted and totaled the votes.
