"Like asking your mom if you're the sweetest little snookums who ever lived." Politifact is terrible, part 3647:
2nd great NY story today: "weeks ahead of schedule, $58 million under budget, and a door 'of submarine quality'.”
“It’s a big city... somebody’s going to drop something.”
"A bag of hospital-bound blood, a collection of artificial body parts, engagement rings, stuffed animals"
I am transfixed. I cannot stop looking at this.…
"Falling back on 'it’s an ongoing investigation' is not going to work anymore. It’s been long enough"
"Even a limited air campaign cd play into an ISIS narrative of US infidels intervening on behalf of apostate govts"
The awkward moment when you realize your last act as Speaker of the House will be suspending yourself from the House:
Rolling whip count of members who say Congress should debate & vote on whether to authorize force vs ISIS:
