    I've had on Very Basic News (aka CNN) this morning as I work on some things.

    Aside from the sheer horror of what passes for "news" these days, there was some program on with Carol Costello which apparently exists to pit two Dems and two Cons in a "shout-off" about three topics: one of which was this WHPC* snub.

    One of the Cons was Ron Christie -- who has landed at CNN as the GOP's token spokesman for the 19th century.  I don't recall whether it was before or after he completely denied any and all aspects of climate science, but once the topic turned to this golf trip he immediately pivoted to "I think the bigger question is why POTUS is not helping put people to work" or however they phrase it these days.

    Personally, I'm 120% in favor of propping up Con drones like Christie in front of cameras whenever possible.  It certainly helps reinforce their weaponized use of politics in place of planning or policy.

    * (It should be noted that Ed Henry is the anointed leader of the WHPC, which tells you everything you need to know about that bunch of tire-swinging stenos).

    Remember: the same Defense Department that was apparently caught completely off-guard by sequestration is the same Defense Department that's responsible for America's defense.

      MSNBC for a while and see that apparently he's found a home on CNN.  Thankful for small mercies that I avoid CNN when possible.

        internet upgrade -- just 30 channels of gawd-awful noisy SD -- but more than enough to see why people seem so damn much dumber than they were a mere decade ago when I last had it.

        Holy crap.

        If the NRA can't take a bite out of crime with 300 Million guns, why do they think having even more will help?
