Hey, kids, remember how quiet Yertle McConnell has been when it comes to all the shit spewing out of Hair Furor’s mouth and President Steve Bannon’s pen? Well, I guess the honeymoon is finally over. A straw finally broke the elephant’s back.
From USA TODAY ON POLITICS:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he doesn’t view Russian President Vladimir Putin in the same way that President Trump does.
During an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, the Kentucky Republican called Putin a “thug” and former KGB agent who was not elected in a way most would consider “a credible election.” Putin also invaded the sovereign nation of Ukraine and “messed around in our elections,” said McConnell.

Sen. Marco Rubio put aside serious reservations about Rex Tillerson and announced Monday he’ll back the former ExxonMobil chief for secretary of state, effectively clinching his confirmation.
The support of the Florida Republican means Tillerson will clear a Monday evening in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee instead of facing an embarrassing “unfavorable” verdict by the panel. Rubio’s decision likely foreshadows unanimous GOP support for Tillerson, who had made some Republicans nervous about his closeness to Russian President Vladimir Putin and reluctance to criticize Putin’s actions during his confirmation hearing.

Racist Misogynist General Attorney General confirmation hearing of Little Beauregard. Is it just me, or does anyone else hear Jeff Sessions and picture this?
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 VANITY FAIR:
The media frenzy ignited by James Comey’s decision, less than two weeks before the election, to disclose that the F.B.I. uncovered a fresh trove of e-mails that may pertain to Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal continues to reverberate throughout Washington. While a number of high-profile Republicans, including G.O.P. nominee Donald Trump, have praised Comey, the F.B.I. director’s October Surprise has incited withering criticism from both sides of the aisle. No one, however, has attacked Comey with more force than former pugilist Harry Reid. In a fiery letter on Sunday, the outgoing Nevada senator argued that Comey’s “partisan actions” may have violated federal law and accused the Republican official of withholding “explosive information” linking Trump and his top advisers to the Russian government.

Hey kids, I think we all need a little break from Donald Trump and his mishegas, so let’s all sit around the campfire and sing a little song.

From USA TODAY:
Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson had another tough night on the campaign trail when he couldn’t come up with the name of a foreign leader during an interview Wednesday.
“Who’s your favorite foreign leader,” MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asked Johnson, who sat beside his running mate, former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld.
“You gotta do this,” Matthews said. “Anywhere. Any continent. Canada, Mexico, Europe, over there, Asia, South America, Africa: Name a foreign leader that you respect,” Matthews said as Johnson continued to fumble for an answer.
“I guess I’m having an Aleppo moment,” Johnson said — referring to a much-lampooned moment in an interview earlier this month, where he responded “What is Aleppo?” when asked what he would do about the Syrian city that has been decimated by civil war.
