trump will bestow Presidential Medal of Freedom to Lou Holtz. Now don't get me wrong...

I like Lou Holtz.

But now the Medal of Freedom goes to football coaches who really haven't distinguished themselves except for a coaching career?

What new ground did Lou Holtz break? What act of bravery did he commit that enhanced the causes of freedom and justice in America?

Maybe I'm missing something he did? Did he jump into a river and save a drowning puppy?

Everything trump touches turns to shit, and he has totally cheapened the Medal of Freedom.

I'm pumped. Young people are voting. Saw it with my own eyes.

So, I drove by the early voting place here in Baton Rouge... the line was looooooooong in this mostly white, Republican neighborhood. But what I saw encouraged me: from what I saw at least a third of those in line were young people. And many African Americans, too.

I contrast that with what I usually see on election day here: youthful indifference. Where are the young people???? Well, this time they're showing up!

Now, I have no hope that Biden will win this beggar state (I love Louisiana, don't get me wrong, but truth is truth)... but if around the country there's this much enthusiasm and concern for their futures... as I'm now convinced there is.... Biden wins in a landslide.

Just watched the Borat movie. The Guliani scene is disturbing.

Tucking in his shirt?

OK, now, I won't spoil the details, but he sure had a much better defense than THAT.

trump actually strung these words together:

"I take full responsibility. It's not my fault..."

Let's say Congress passes a bill to expand the USSC, Biden signs it into law, then somebody sues.

The current Supreme Court decides to take the case.

What then?

trump spreading a rumor about a nasty woman: Susan Collins

Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) Tweeted:
There is a nasty rumor out there that @SenatorCollins of Maine will not be supporting our great United States Supreme Court Nominee. Well, she didn’t support Healthcare or my opening up 5000 square miles of Ocean to Maine, so why should this be any different. Not worth the work!

Why was the priest arrested?

A priest having sex inside a church seems to me clearly protected by our Bill of Rights.
