Trump is like Mr.Haney from Green acres.

The sneakers and now he’s pushing his her fragrances called 47.

This is the part I then start bitching why in the fuck did it take Garland 22 months to appoint special counsel.

It was not like there wasn’t evidence of crimes when he assumed AG slot history will show us.

The former guy did once appear onstage in some Green Acres goof, I seem to recall. But he’s Haney, for sure.

6. Biden needs to make firing AG Garland one of his first acts when he gets re-elected.

Garland is paralyzed by fear of not seeming bi-partisan and treats Dems like dogs and helps R's every way possible. A real AG would be investigating the congress traitors and would have started in on tsf right away instead of wasting 2 years and now America is severely at risk - because he refused to do the right thing at the right time. TSF is proving quite skilled at delaying everything and someone made it so he got the most corrupt judge in America on the airtight docs case. GRRR!!!!!

It seems a little unfair to me to make assumptions about the man's mental state and motivations, much less accuse him of deliberate duplicity that is, imo, not supported by the facts.

I do think he tries hard (maybe a little too hard) to appear nonpartisan, but I don’t think any of us is a position to know whether he's "paralyzed by fear" or motivated by something else entirely.

Furthermore, I think accusing him of deliberately showing favoritism to Republicans is going too far. I don't understand or agree with a number of Garland's choices, but I don't see him bending over backwards to help Republicans. If making the Repubs happy was his chief concern, it seems odd to me that he would ever have appointed a bulldog like Jack Smith to investigate TSF. Did he take too long to do it? I can't help but think so, but I don't claim to know why he waited as long as he did.

The current situation is not what we would have hoped for, but I prefer to focus on the positives, such as the 91 criminal indictments and the fact that Jack Smith is doing an excellent job. The election is coming up too fast for comfort, but all is not lost YET, and I think giving up hope is the worst mistake we could make right now.

Do I agree with every decision Garland has made? Hell, no. Do I wish things were moving a lot faster. Hell, yes! Do I think Garland is a conniving snake who has shown favoritism to the Republicans at every turn? Absolutely not, and I see substantial evidence to the contrary.

Being frustrated and impatient is completely understandable right now. It's hard. Sometimes I feel like punching holes in the wall myself. But I am not about to give up hope, and neither should you or anyone else.

P.S. I am with you on Judge Aileen "Loose" Cannon, and I hope she gets kicked off the case.

7. Yes, there was evidence, but courts require ironclad bulletproof evidence

The documents case unfolded long after his appointment.

If Garland was sleeping, was Fani Willis sleeping? Smith filed charges before Willis.

Loved that show to death (at least the 1st three seasons or so)

What a mind-frack for a kid! The whole show was held together by nutty non-sequiturs.
