  •  Not being fair and balance, Jon (8+ / 0-)

    Jon, can't you find any argument to defend the stupidity in the Senate yesterday?

    I can't either so let' cut this shit that we have to be fair and balance, OK?

      He often reminds me of one of my brothers (saw it in the body language of that bit tonight), who once argued with me that, since 'all' politicians are probably more or less corrupt, the guy who was put in jail with trumped-up, plainly partisan charges might as well stay there. Either because the justice system simply couldn't actually be so screwed up as to allow for incarceration for political purposes, or because 'the other guys' would probably do the same thing.'Cause.
