Thanks to our old friend Tengrain over at Mock Paper Scissors (you should be visiting there often, dear Raisinettes), this is how I spent my afternoon.
Former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren will join MSNBC and host an evening news show called “For the Record with Greta” in the 6 p.m. ET timeslot, the network announced Thursday.
The news comes just one day after Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly announced she was leaving Fox News for NBC News after a 12-year career. Kelly’s deal with NBC included a daytime program, a Sunday evening news show and regular participation in major event and political coverage.
Time for a new logo:
There is much speculation about the tiny-handed Cuckwreck Orange’s choice for Secretary of State. Apparently, there are still lots of people in contention, including whackadoodle Rudy Giuliani, scary-ass John Bolton, Tennessee asshole Senator Bob Corker, and the latest beauty contestant, former Ford CEO Alan Mulally. Of course, the most talked-about possibility is Mitt Romney. Personally, I think Wisconsin weasel Reince Priebus was pushing Mittsie. I guess he figured that the administration needs at least one grown-up. However, curmudgeon and all-round piece of shit Newt Gingrich is against Mittsie (mostly because Mittsie is not Newtie), and the vile liar Kellyanne Conway hates his guts.
From Steve Benen at The Maddow Blog at MSNBC:
The reason there’s so much interest in who Donald Trump will choose for various positions in his administration is a simple principle: personnel is policy. We want to know what the Trump/Pence administration will do once it’s in power, so we keep an eye on his cabinet and White House selections to get a sense of the next White House’s substantive agenda.
And when it comes to health care, the president-elect apparently intends to go in a very dangerous direction.President-elect Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he will nominate Georgia Rep. Tom Price to head the Department of Health and Human Services.
Maybe it’s Rudy Giuliani’s prostate problems that have led to so many leaks coming from the FBI. From THE HUFFINGTON POST:
Rudy Giuliani said Friday that he knew the FBI planned to review more emails tied to Hillary Clinton before a public announcement about the investigation last week, confirming that the agency leaked information to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
I was wondering why the FBI felt compelled to change their seal.
Original peepee boy (who, by the way, has bigger hands and a bigger weewee than Trumpelthinskin and Rudy 9-11 Giuliani put together)
From CBS NEWS:
The Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday said that FBI Director James Comey’s disclosure Friday about newly discovered emails related to the private email servers probe is “not fair to Congress, the American people or Secretary [Hillary] Clinton.”
In a letter to Comey Monday, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said that Comey’s letter to GOP committee chairmen on Friday was “vague” and he listed a number of questions that he wants answered by Friday.
