Hoyer announces no more votes until January 7. Big cheer goes up in House chamber. This means the House won't approve a resolution on impeachment mgrs & to send impeachment pkg to Senate until at least January, 2020

One might say that within the Republican Party he’s achieved a sort of cultural revolution https://t.co/yNoSen9dxv

…and don’t want to think about what may come out from his taxes, what he’s doing for Putin, how Jared’s been selling us out to keep his family biz from bankruptcy, the SDNY investigations of Rudy & others, etc. Because they’re trying not to think about just how wrong it is. https://t.co/Fez2qMgOKd

Problem with @senatemajldr & @LindseyGrahamSC is, in their preening for Fox, they proclaimed in advance plans for a sham hearing. They could have waited till House referral. But no.
Like a guy announcing plans to rob a bank who's then surprised cops are there when he shows up.

Is there any actual evidence that the D senators running for the presidency are worried about having to come back for the president*’s trial? I’d think standing up for the Constitution and the Republic might well make pretty good soundbites and ads.

My President living his best life while the orange shitstain crumbles.
And good morning, folks.
(wanted to beat rikyrah to that just once)
Obama deserves it.
Trump is spending Christmas at Mar-a-Lago (or Disgraceland, as some have taken to calling it). It would almost be worth the price of admission just to watch him ramble the hallways and fume about the unfairness of it all.
Trump got Pelosi’s Christmas card–that one that has the family newsletter saying “This year, we impeached the giant asshole.” If Santa is real, Trump will get a lump of that clean beautiful coal he’s always going on about.
Minor mystery afoot chez NotMax. There’s a small pen knife I regularly have uses for which is always kept in the same spot on the desk, where it has comfortably nestled for decades. Yesterday had a need for it and it is not there. Nor anyplace else, apparently.
Fairly certain I didn’t sleepwalk and swallow it.
I remember reading at least once about such a maroon. I had expected that McConnell and Graham, being lawyers, would know better. But no …
Are you certain of that? You should get an X-ray, just to be sure.
@Amir Khalid: their need to signal support to their deplorable constituents outweighs any common sense they might have once had. Plus, I think they feel pretty immune to consequences, which should worry us.
Good morning all. I’m sure just seeing our distinguished prior President burns Trump’s ass, and I hope it feels like a blowtorch.
@NotMax: In MY house, the answer would be “cats.”
This too shall pass.
So to speak. ;)
David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch
@NotMax: sounds like alien abduction. you probably left the pen knife on the UFO
Good Morning, Everyone ? ??
We should do a side by side of both presidents golfing.
44 is out here, living his best life ?
I love how Nancy Smash turned the tables on Moscow Mitch ???
@rikyrah: Good morning.
@NotMax: There is a saying that people use to help them find something. It goes “Tony, Tony, come around, something’s lost that must be found.” I believe Tony is St Anthony, patron saint of something pertinent to lost items. You might try it, just to see.
@NotMax: I “lost” my wallet after a wedding last month and spent a full day walking the grounds and combing the house, drove me nuts. I had everything in place to cancel card (I had put them on hold) and get another brand new drivers license and VA ID. It was in the bottom of my closet and I have no idea how it got there.
I went to sleep and put my usual glasses somewhere, because as of this morning, I have no idea where they are.
Usually keep on the night stand by my bed.
If I’m reading or something, I’ll put it by the side of my bed.
They usually remain in place.
Not so much last night.
Now using backup frame.
One of the most frustrating things about losing something is that my mind helpfully shows me the last time I saw it, but never any surroundings that would help me find it!
Overreach. It’s in their nature.
I can’t think of a time when the Rethugs seemed even a tiny bit mindful of consequences. I don’t think it’s in their DNA.
Fell out of your pants pocket. That happens to me with change I’ve forgotten to take out.
@debbie: I’m older than you I think, because during the 60s when civil rights legislation passed with bipartisan support was probably the last time.
The site is snappier but recent comments is gone. I hope that’s not the culprit because I like that feature.
Heh, more like I just didn’t think that far back. More coffee!
It was killing me last night. I finally gave up on the 10th refresh without my comment showing up.
The server was crapping out during the debate. That was frustrating.
TS (the original)
If you exit the thread & come back in it usually shows. I do that if a couple of refreshes don’t work.
@raven: We spent a whole day last week looking for my husband’s lost wallet. We finally found it the bathroom behind the toilet, where one of the cats had pushed it off the counter while husband was taking a shower.
@TS (the original):
Thanks. I’ll try that next time.
Twice in my life I have lost my drivers license in airports when I needed it absolutely. Both time I found it in my pants cuffs. That was long ago when I wore suits on the road. Now that I’m in shorts or jeans I don’t know where I’d even look.

Speaking from my own experience, first, go to the place you last used it. It’s possible you put it down and wandered away.
After that, get creative. Anything is possible. Look in the fridge, the cupboard where you keep the coffee cups, your underwear drawer. Think of it as a treasure hunt.

@Dorothy A. Winsor:
Yes. Back when I lived without a landline (in a big city with decent cell service) I couldn’t find my cell phone. Searched everywhere. It was gone gone gone. Of course I couldn’t call myself to locate it via ring, so I emailed several friends to phone me. Finally one responded and my laundry hamper started chirping. I have NO idea how the damn phone landed not on top, but in the middle of a pile of laundry.
@Baud: This is a test of exactly that. We want to see if recent comments is the culprit.
Where do you keep the mustard? Check there.
A Unified Theory of the Trumps’ Creepy Aesthetic is a hoot.
I hadn’t heard that one – I usually resort to an “oh, blessed St. Anthony, where the fuck did I put the (fill in the blank) – oh, there it is! Thanks!”
Haha, what a classless pile of shit

Elves. This time of year it’s always elves. But don’t fret, they only took it to help with wrapping your toys!
