In the dictionary under schmuck it says "see @CLewandowski_" https://t.co/BkxG17bp6X

To be fair (to be ecumenically unfair), while the confrontation concerned Florida politics, Lewandowski is a Masshole native who chose to become a Granite Header. And, IMO, further evidence of why New Hampshire should lose its front-runner primary status, because that state just encourages two-bit bullies like Lewandowski…
MIAMI — It was supposed to be a friendly introduction between Republicans at the Trump International Hotel in Washington on Wednesday night, when the president’s former campaign manager and the Republican leader of the Florida Senate met.
But, witnesses say, the impromptu meeting between Corey Lewandowski, Florida Senate President Bill Galvano and Florida state Sen. Jeff Brandes unexpectedly morphed into a hostile debate over a question that encapsulates today’s GOP politics: How much credit should Donald Trump get for GOP successes?…
Three others who witnessed the contretemps and two others who had spoken to the senators also confirmed the surprising public disagreement and relayed the events to POLITICO. All described Lewandowski as needlessly confrontational and disrespectful to the senators who were caught off guard by the former campaign manager, now a reliable cable news defender and promoter of his former boss. The witnesses and confidants of the senators spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive moment.
With Trump laser focused on winning his second home state of Florida for the second time, the disagreement may foreshadow debates to come for Republicans in the nation’s largest swing state heading into the 2020 cycle.…
“Donald Trump saved Florida, from the top to the bottom of the ticket,” Lewandowski said, according to one witness whose account was confirmed by a second.
Galvano, who was in charge of running GOP campaigns for the Florida Senate in the last election cycle, reportedly agreed that Trump deserved credit but added, said another witness, that the Florida Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee he led and the various GOP candidates and committees spent a record $44 million on their campaigns across the state, thereby driving GOP turnout that helped in the top-of-the-ticket races.
“There were lots of efforts put forward,” Galvano said, according to a witness…
Violence solves nothing, she said piously, but I kinda look forward Lewandowski throwing the first punch at the wrong person…

@Major Major Major Major: Hilarious!
A belated welcome to NY from me here in brooklyn.
Kokoroko Afrobeat Collective is a good thing.
@Major Major Major Major: His Russian handler. Sloppy tradecraft.
This Hannity rant is priceless!
Yay, me! I figured out how to make a link!
@RedDirtGirl: Congrats! I (almost) feel bad for not clicking on it, but I am not getting out of the boat. Ain’t gonna listen to Hannity. Sorry.
@CaseyL: I’m not going to listen to it either.
@RedDirtGirl: Not going to listen to Hannity. Can you summarize? Is he upset about the filings today?
@Yarrow: It’s the combination of flop sweat and feigned outrage that I find so compelling. He is Pure FoxNews Essence. He touches on every RWNJ talking point and boogie man.
@CaseyL: I don’t blame you! And thanks!
Also, too, I’ve been meaning to tell you that I worked with a woman named Casey L****, and I asked her if she was you. She wasn’t.
@RedDirtGirl: They just speak in code words now. Emails! Witch hunt! Drain the swamp! The words and concepts don’t even have to mean anything. They just say them and everyone nods along in agreement. It’s a cult.
No lie told
@RedDirtGirl: the screen cap is great…hannity looks like he’s about to shit a brick….he’s got to be wondering what Cohen spilled about his shady deals, especially since he’s decided to swap pillow talk with Individual 1.
@Yarrow: Reference to the Ascians in Gene Wolfe’s “Citadel of the Autarch”, who can only speak in well- known phrases from The Group of Seventeen creed, and so managed to communicate with it.
@RedDirtGirl: Wow that’s unbelievable. Strangely, that’s the first time I could listen to him for more than 2 secs. Maybe it didn’t bother me because he was just so far gone. It’s like he himself just got caught and is talking a desperate blue streak. I wish he could be prosecuted for assisting in crimes.
@RedDirtGirl: Definitely not me; I’d’ve cheerfully admitted being CaseyL!
ETA: If this whole mishegoss brings down Hannity, I will do a happy dance.
Yup. As long as we are going for canned staging, why not these two who are better at it?

Our gaming group and later arrivals who picked up on it still use the variation we came up with when that episode first aired.

Does Mueller have shit on Cohen’s client No 3?
As a 7th generation native Floridian, it galls me that Trump claims Florida as his “second home state” just because his tacky-ass Disgraceland property is here. That asshole is from [Pace Salsa ad voice] New York City [/Pace] and should not be allowed to further beslime the Sunshine State.
Some days, I’m embarrassed to be Malaysian. There was a rally in KL today against International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination which the UN adopted in 1965. PM Dr Mahathir was supposed to attend SUHAKAM’s (the Malaysian Human Rights Commission’s) celebration of Human Rights Day on Sunday, but said he would not because SUHAKAM wants Malaysia to accede to ICERD; he says Malaysia will not do this.
Malaysia’s constitution establishes Islam as a national religion (in a country where only about 3/5 of people are Muslim) and gives a special position to indigenous ethnicities, of which the largest and most powerful is Malay Muslims (my own ethnic group). Malay Muslims are instinctively and fiercely protective of the privileges that come with this special position. They consider any assault on it, like acceding to ICERD, an assault on their faith, their race (which they love more than they love their country), and their motherland (which they consider uniquely theirs, above the claims of non-Malay Malaysians). There is an out and proud racism at work here, which I feel has become toxic in the context of national unity, and which will be famiiar to my American friends who see “white nationalism” in their own country.
@Betty Cracker: Screw dat! Culturally, he’s outta touch up here, but he fits in perfectly with youse. He’s yours. Hannity will retire there, too.
@Van Buren: The horror movie will be called “It Came from Queens.”
@Betty Cracker: Whenever I hear “Mar-a-Lago” I SWTG I hear my father muttering about Majorie Merriweather Post rolling in her grave.
@oatler.: It would make a good setup for an SNL skit. High church setting, everyone ritually reciting the canned phrases in a Gregorian chant, maybe a hymn.
You know you’re a manly man when you tell your wife “hold my scarf”.

Don’t we all, she says malevolently. While agreeing that violence solves nothing.
