New filing in Roy Moore v. Sacha Baron Cohen: Complainthttps://t.co/Hsx2QkCL7Y pic.twitter.com/iV9ch4Rw6z
— Big Cases Bot (@big_cases) September 5, 2018
Judge Roy Moore (R-Al) an alleged creep has sued Sasha Baran Cohen and others.
All I can say is go long popcorn once discovery is allowed.
I am totally juiced up! I’m going to find some Fazis and nuck the absolute shit outta them!
Summary judgment comes before discovery right? The case will get tossed prior to discovery unless Cohen doesn’t file doe it…
I cannot imagine that SBC doesn’t have a plan for this, which will be even more embarrassing for Moore, and I am here for it, even though I’ve never been a fan, because Andy Kaufman did it first and better.
I was hoping for an Arpaio lawsuit, or maybe one where Trump sues for having Cohen get some MAGA supporters to do unspeakable things to a Trump mannequin (RFLOL moment)
I found the excerpts from Who is America that are on YouTube both hilarious and disturbing.
On today’s episode of The Creeple’s Court…

I have a writer’s group meeting tonight, which should be much better than my cardiologist appointment this afternoon. I’m fine but now he wants me to go to cardiac rehab, like I’ve been sitting around for four weeks. I hate spending time at doctor appointments. I have stuff to do.
WaPo has the least surprising news of the day: The White House is discussing potential replacements for Jim Mattis. Twitler may believe Mattis’ denial of saying mean things about him to Woodward, but the book has to have reminded him of all the things that Mattis has ignored or slow walked.
@Anderj: Summary judgment is after discovery. SBC can file to dismiss the case before discovery.
@Dorothy A. Winsor
Jam-packed week. Didn’t you have dentist and DMV yesterday?
much as I loathe many of the people whom SBC mocks, I have three objections: (1) it’s a style of “comedy” that I do not find amusing; I hate the “gotcha”; (2) in at least one of the episodes I saw, SBC was acting like an ass while at dinner at a couple’s house; they were clearly appalled, but he was a guest in their house so they would not challenge him; I thought it actually made him look quite rude, and not in a good way; (3) in at least two of the episodes I saw, he attributed things to Hillary or the Clinton Foundation that were (a) not true and (b) were guaranteed to upset the people he was talking to. Did he go back to those folks and say no, actually, Clinton had nothing to do with this? Because if not, he is spreading crap about Clinton, even if it’s crap he’s using to press their buttons and get terrible responses from them. This essentially trashes Clinton, no matter how false it is.
A little bird told me our Dear Tweeter went on TV just now and said some nonsense. Anyone care to recap? Listening to Trump speak live gives me fits.
@narya: I’m not big on his style of comedy either.
Welp, Kayla will always be ‘that woman with the crucifix earrings. I can only imagine how Kayla and Roy found each other.
@narya: I have never nor will i ever find SBC funny. I’ll just root for injuries here.
Is Moore making use of his “Jew lawyer?”
JFC, we’ve fallen so far as a country that we have to give him points for agreeing with Brown. v BOE.
@MattF: Kayla and Roy can’t even agree between them how they found each other.
At least he knows what it is. Low bar.

@NotMax: Yes! Who are these people who expect me to spend my time going here and there?
@Dorothy A. Winsor:
My orthopedist just got mad at me because I came in too early after my surgery. He didn’t want to see me until next week. Have I mentioned lately that the people who do his phone appointments really suck?
Then I said I needed my doctor’s note for work before I could go. The desk assistant came back and said, “He says you can go back to work in 8 weeks.”
I said, “Uh, no, I have a desk job where I can put my knee up. Ask him again.” And I had to sit for a while until she came back with a new note that said 2 weeks.
The other receptionist said, “I have an email box full of people begging me to let them stay out on disability for as long as possible, and you want to go back SOONER?!?” ?
The patient standing next to me was totally on my side, though.
This White House’s tendency is to replace, not good with better, but bad with worse. You have to wonder what calamity the new senior staff will bring about.
I don’t like SBC very much, but whatever pokes holes in these morons egos & bank accounts.

True, considering that the most important and perhaps only qualification will be total loyalty to Trump & his family, especially the First Daughter.
I’m torn about Roy Moore. On one hand, I am relieved AF he lost his election. On the other, I kinda miss the guy. I’ll never forget him riding that horse to the voting booth, looking like a stiffened corpse roped to a jackhammer.
@E: I just felt sorry for the horse. The jerk was keeping his seat on the horse by balancing himself with the reins. That must have hurt the horses mouth.
@Faithful Kurker: It’s lurker not kurker. Silly fingers.

@Mary G: I just want to see the release form used. I can’t imagine that SBC, Showtime, and every lawyer they know didn’t go over that sucker in detail beforehand. Because I betcha that Roy Moore did not.
Fuck this NYT op ed. Ok, great, someone inside is railing on Trump. How does that help?
You just admitted to a different flavor of constitutional crisis. It was a crisis when Al Haig stepped in for Reagan when he was shot, and he wasn’t stealing things off of his desk.
That’s not helpful. Elected officials have authority because they were elected. It’s not acceptable to substitute in an unelected official for that. If the president isn’t an adult, then you are obligated to address that head on and bring it to the attention of the public and the other branches of government. This isn’t West Wing, it’s the plot of ‘Dave’.
The only point of this op-ed is to occupy a chapter in someones book once they get out. It does nothing else.
@Dorothy A. Winsor:
Hope everything goes well. Now do as the doc says!
Took 8 months and numerous apt for me to get through a complete cardio workup at the VA including redoing tests because the originating doc didn’t order the right ones. I know what you mean about waiting.
A big part of Cohen’s shtick is that he starts with something a little bit off and then pushes the envelope further and further to see what kind of reaction he gets. You can tell the difference between the truly awful people who are already in the place Cohen is going and try to lead him along, the people who are willing to go along because it’s socially awkward to say no, and people who are genuinely appalled and just don’t know how to let him know. It’s to his credit that he leaves in segments where the people are appalled and don’t go along, even when they make him look like an ass.
Obnoxious comedy is just that, obnoxious. It’s supposed to be funny but it seldom is. It’s like drumpf inviting himself to dinner. It’s just not funny.
He got the phone back:
THIS IS FINE.
And another grifter chimes in:
IANAL, but doesn’t this get tossed in about 2 seconds flat? Moore’s a public figure. Lampooning public figures in the media is basically one of the most ironclad First Amendment rights around.
This is about as stupid as Bill Clinton flipping out and suing someone for tricking him into an interview where he’s “scanned” with an Intern Bang-o-Meter.™ (Of course, Clinton would not be so stupid as to be roped in to an interview by a poorly-disguised Sacha Baron Cohen, but if he were, it would be even stupider to sue over it.)
@Mary G: @Timurid: Every accusation is a confession
Oh my God, that image made me LOL. But now I’ll never get it out of my head. Damme sir, I say, Damme!
Someone should tweet back:
And obstruction of justice!
@Baud: Or ‘Collusion!’.

Third…for you comic book movie, esp Marvel, fans…new pics from the Captain Marvel movie starring Brie Larson, as Captain Marvel!
7h7 hours ago
The future is female! Here’s your exclusive first look at @BrieLarson as @CaptainMarvel, the galaxy’s newest — and most powerful — star: http://share.ew.com/sCQYPSe
@dmsilev: Yeesh. Yep, that’s as unhinged as my sources indicated.
In other news…Andrew Janz (District 22) has a new ad out:
Watch, like, donate…
Roof, floor, what’s the difference?
@chopper: Mah Nishtanah + autotune + a lone, sad comment about Trump
@Roger Moore: His disapproval numbers are through the roof, maybe that’s what he meant?
@dmsilev: No, he did not mean the truth.
Moore seems to have forgotten that truth is an absolute defense against defamation claims, so if somehow he gets past a motion to dismiss, he likely will not enjoy what happens next.
But I bet, as others have said, that the release is a thing of beauty that fully discloses what’s going on if you actually read it, and signs away any rights you might have to sue.
Watching CBS News.
Why the FUCK do we have troops in Afghanistan at all?
Yeah, he didn’t say *which* numbers were through the roof.
@California Stars: That was only one chunk of the rant. He’s not just unhinged, he’s actually ripped the door out of its frame.
@efgoldman: Because Hillary Clinton is a warmonger.
@lamh36: So if the movie comes out in March is it OK for me to be Captain Marvel this Halloween? That Entertainment Weekly cover makes me want to cosplay.
I think granddaughter is going to be Wonder Woman.

Oh SBC … is that the comedian Sasha Baron Cohen, right!?
‘Cause I was thinking it was Southern Baptist Church, and that they were suing Moore for being a pedo while being a member of their organization, maybe? Or not… so confusing!!!!!
I love reading the replies! It is obvious that most of Dump’s followers are hate followers & not fans
I am not an expert, but I’m pretty sure that the etiquette says you can cosplay any costume that’s been revealed to the public.
Bush Jr had a hardon and the currently serving Generals are all fucking idiots;
Our longest, bestest, oldest war, the Afghanistan War is now a junior in high school and got its driving license within the last year. Next, it will have to register for the Selective Service. When can it buy dope?
It makes its own.
@J R in WV:
I like your scenario more better!
@dmsilev: Yeah, I agree the term “unhinged” has lost some of its cachet in the Trump era, whether through repetition or just narrative inadequacy.
@efgoldman: When I was a kid I had a wonder woman costume that I wore until it fell apart. Pretty modest by today’s standards.
Will your granddaughter have the cape too? Handy for chilly October nights.
I think that stupid OpEd is Republican electioneering. They know they are getting their asses handed to them this fall largely because hair furor is so obviously unfit. So they want to pretend the adults in the WH are actually controlling him and have everything under control. Note how X claims to love all the great things that have been done. Then they almost pat the reader on the head and say “now, don’t you worry about the bugfuck crazy loon in charge, we have him hemmed in.”
@efgoldman: @TenguPhule: @trollhattan:
Ummmmmm, President Carter, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan decided to break Afghanistan,
It’s remained broken ever since. There was one chance to “fix” Afghanistan, but the Bush Administration decided to hand it back over to the people good at keeping it broken.
@Miss Bianca: I know, that poor horse!
I’m pretty sure the Soviet invasion had at least a little bit to do with it being broken, also, too.
The Ususal Suspects funded, armed and trained the Muj, guys like the Haqqani Network and Hekteymeyar, 6 months before the Soviet Invasion.
