    I like that J$ brought back an image to the daily J$P posts!
    I like today’s merging 21CF (21st Century Fox) with Mickey!

    • I like it, too.

      • Larry Kelly

        Add me to the list. Made me smile.

  • Larry Kelly

    CNN bus runs over nice, old black lady. I’d call them racist, but that’s from their bag of tricks, not mine.

  • Larry Kelly

    On CBS THIS MORNING
    1) Donna Brazile tried to weasel away from the harsh criticism of her book. Gayle and Nora wouldn’t let her. Fealng the heat. Legs get weak in the knees.
    2) Major Garret reporting in Korea, “President’s words last summer about ‘raining fire and brimstone’ haven’t helped.” (says who, you?) Actually that wasn’t reporting; that was punditry. Can’t believe I used to like that guy.

    • GATXER

      Amazing that Brazile has said that after Seth Rich’s murder she was afraid for her life……..now why would she be afraid for her life that a low level DNC worker was killed in a random robbery in a city she wasn’t even based in?

      Read this morning that one of the people she dedicated her book to is……..Seth Rich.

      • Cecelia

        Brazile suspects Rich’s death is linked to his havIng served and then been ultimately dispatched from view… by the Russians.

        • Larry Kelly

          as directed by cell leader, Comrade Trump. Not sure of which Trump. Awaiting leaks from Mueller.

      • homemaker

        Let’s face it. There is something going on with this murder that may never be learned. I want to know what that young man said before he died. Where’s the investigative journalism here? (Yes, I believe there’s something more nefarious than a simple murder) If the case is closed all documents should be available through FOIA.

    • Minnesota Nice

      Donna Brazile is the gift that keeps on giving. She’s a perfect fit for Democrats, she lies and cheats and then denies it all, even when faced with proof of her misdeeds, comments, etc.

    • Cecelia

      Oh, she a baleful crackpot to the media now in proportion as to how it would be the opposite if Reince Prebius had tales to tell about the party and Trump.

      She’s a democrat who has worked for decades in political campaigns, headed the freaking DNC, did her best to get Clinton elected, but let’s argue her “rigging” against her, to dismiss her vast insider’s knowledge, experience, and former dedication the Clinton’s election.

      As the media, lets look at nothing, lets wave her away as only mendacious and kooky.

      Brazile quite over-estimated her own influence and the media’s dedication to discovering anything outside of their partisan bubble.

    Are Kathleen Wiley and Michael Oreskes’ accusers too busy?

    Hopefully the ultimate test of harassment justice will be a topic at CNN’s town hall: https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/Journalist-Accuses-Rev-Jackson-of-Sexual-Harassment-455879813.html

  • Minnesota Nice

    Mixed feelings about Twitter expansion from 140 to 280 characters rolling out to all users today.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      It will give the Racist Stooges more room to spew their crap.

      • Larry Kelly

        Same crap. Less abbreviation.

    • Grandpa D

      I hadn’t noticed it yet; Will take a closer look. Once in a very great while I’ll need more that 140 characters. Most of my snarks are short.

    • Larry Kelly

      Why mess with a good thing? I was happy with the Mass celebrated in Latin.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Depending on the parish, parts still are, such as the Gloria and Agnus Dei.

  • Today’s most popular links:
    5 elites belittling
    4 impugns Brazile
    3 real reason
    2 is this the end
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 CNN runs snarky, smart-ass headline that comes back to bite them.
