The New York Times? SUCKERS!!!

Donnie Drizzle makes a big production of fussing and fuming on Twitter about The New York Times. But he uses NYT to circulate bogus news stories his staffers concoct as misdirection plays. He knows the newspaper's still viewed as a credible source, making it a handy tool to trick people into thinking what he wants them to think.

Anyway, Charles Pierce @ Esquire nails down the latest Donnie scam, the one about Rod Rosenstein and the 25th Amendment.

Updated 12:26 PM Saturday: Okay, the name to watch in this matter is Bill Shine, who was an exec at Fox News until a few months ago.

Minority Rule

From Juan Williams @ The Hill: Every state gets two U.S. Senators, which partially explains how we reached this point.

Ace McCain

In summer 2000, I voted for John McCain in the Texas GOP primary, and was preparing to vote for him in the presidential election if he was the Republican nominee. He wasn't, and the country got eight years of Bush 43 instead.

I wasn't happy with McCain during those eight years, mostly because I believed he was too willing to support W after the 9/11 attacks. Still, when 2008 rolled around and Ace won the GOP nomination, I was on the verge of voting for him again. Then, Sarah Palin happened. That was such a stunningly terrible VP choice, it forced me to turn my back on Ace. Was I disappointed? More like betrayed, and extremely pissed off.

So Ace McCain will be on record as the last Republican I ever voted for (2000), and the last Republican I seriously considered voting for (2008). For all his faults, he was still closer to being a decent human being than any other Republican I can name offhand, unless Colin Powell is still a Republican. Is he?

Anyway, Ace's struggle is behind him now.
