And the Cookie Starts to Crumble…

 

From The Atlantic:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday he would recuse himself from overseeing the federal investigation into alleged Russian interference in the presidential election, citing the advice of his staff.

…snip…

The move comes less than 24 hours after The Washington Post revealed Sessions had spoken with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, on two separate occasions during the campaign. That appeared to contradict assertions made by Sessions to the Senate Judiciary Committee twice during the confirmation process.

Honey, They Skunked the Kids

From The Boston Globe:

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Tuesday confirmed school choice advocate Betsy DeVos as Education secretary by the narrowest of margins, with Vice President Mike Pence breaking a 50-50 tie in a historic vote.

Two Republicans joined Democrats in the unsuccessful effort to derail the nomination of the wealthy Republican donor. The Senate historian said Pence’s vote was the first by a vice president to break a tie on a Cabinet nomination.

A Few New Pics for the Pence Family Albumin

I was watching TV news this morning, and up popped a picture of Mike Pence. I don’t know what was being discussed, because all I could think of was how much he resembles an egg. Maybe you can blame it on the fact that I hadn’t had breakfast yet, or maybe it’s because….

The Price Is Wrong

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.

Weakly Whirled Gnus

From THE DAILY BEAST:

On Monday night, unpaid Donald Trump adviser and current Fox News host Sean Hannity broadcasted his “EXCLUSIVE” interview with Jeff Rovin, novelist and self-identified “fixer” for Hillary and Bill Clinton. Rovin first told his story to supermarket tabloid the National Enquirer last week, opening up about his alleged past as a Clinton ally who would help the powerful couple manipulate the press and (also!) set up secret, extramarital sexual liaisons.

Hannity emphasized that Fox News could not “independently verify” Rovin’s story. He also noted that the Clinton presidential campaign—“shockingly”—did not respond to his team’s multiple requests seeking comment.

Paul Ryan is Just Pussyfooting Around

Donald Trump, the self-described “best for woman” candidate:

“Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

From Charles P. Pierce at Esquire:

“It’s just words, folks. It’s just words. Those words, I’ve been hearing them for many years.”

Donald J. Trump, Republican candidate for president, October 9, 2016.

The most predictable fallout from Sunday night’s gutterdammerung in St. Louis was that the leaders of what we now laughingly call the Republican Establishment would be wrapping themselves in their most eloquent weaselspeak as regards to their party’s standard-bearer. And we were not disappointed.

On Monday morning, Speaker Paul Ryan, the zombie-eyed granny-starver from the state of Wisconsin, led the chorus. Per CNBC:

House Speaker Paul Ryan told fellow Republican lawmakers Monday he will not defend Donald Trump and focus only on holding congressional majorities.

An Uncivil Union

From FORTUNE:

Donald Trump and his running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, don’t have much in common—politically, philosophically or personally. And their awkward marriage was on full display in the first interview the two gave together on Sunday on “60 Minutes.”

“It’s probably obvious to people we have different styles,” Pence, who served six terms in Congress, told Lesley Stahl.

Kids, Fortune is being waaaaayyyyy too polite. It was a disaster! Every time Plain Dry Melba Toast Pence opened his mouth, Hairy Cheez Doodle cut him off and answered for him. Lesley Stahl just giggled as the journalism deities wept. Anyway, I was lucky enough to nab a picture of the new couple warming up before they started taping.
