Be sure to hug your resident Batman. How many candidates does the GOP really need for governor? Do they need therapy? Or a referee? More fighting about the plans for converting The (former) Ted. Emory missteps into what can only be a metaphor. Berkeley throw-back. What do you get for your 31%? That’s what I thought. Go Boars Go! Oh, dear. Mom Pundit would not approve. Faster, please. (Maybe the dermatologist will finally leave me alone.) This (potential) pairing sounds awesome. Now everybody’s going to redecorate their home theaters. So where will we watch football? (127 days. Thanks for asking.)

That said, I do see a nice marketing op for Steak n’Shake with a pass rush by #TAKhomaSAK April 28, 2017 7:11 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Mom Pundit probably won’t like my “Repeal and go F- yourself” t-shirt I just purchased. April 28, 2017 10:24 AM Log in to Reply The Eiger You stay classy my friend. April 28, 2017 12:21 PM Log in to Reply bethebalance I happened to catch the interview. What wasn’t to like? April 28, 2017 1:12 PM Log in to Reply MikeSilver Mikes 7AM uninformed prediction for today ….. Gov. Deal will sign the certain-parts-of-campus carry bill at the NRA Convention. The audience will give him a standing ovation and cheer his name like Caesar. Unknown to the majority of NRA members, they will be cheering for the leading and most effective defender of gun control in Georgia. April 28, 2017 7:11 AM Log in to Reply Will Durant Yeah, they are even violating the NRA convention attendees’ 2nd Amendment rights and not even allowing card carrying gun toters to pack heat in the hall where the President is speaking.

April 28, 2017 1:15 PM Log in to Reply xdog I don’t know if Scorsese is capable of a period piece that’s not set in NYC but that’s an interesting group of talent. I haven’t heard about Grann’s new book. All the buzz has been about The Lost City of Z. Has anyone seen it yet? Care to share your impressions?

Maybe Coulter, Hannity and O’Reilly can contribute to this effort, too. I bl’eve this is referred to as “pushback!” http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/04/milo-yiannopoulos-new-media-venture April 28, 2017 4:24 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn Awe… You missed us.

Good for you. April 28, 2017 4:34 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Saw your first link yesterday. Very possible, indeed. Sign me up! Regarding the apparent delay in building The Wall, I’ll steal Ann’s last sentence this week: “He’s the commander in chief! He said he’d build a wall. If he can’t do that, Trump is finished and the Republican Party is finished…” As you all know, I love the guy, but truer words have never been spoken. April 29, 2017 8:15 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope No. It’s called “I lost my book deal because I was caught endorsing pederasty and now I need a new way to swindle insecure people out of their money.” April 28, 2017 5:16 PM Log in to Reply augusta52 Well, whatever one thinks of Trump and his speech here today, at least he had the courtesy to come and go in between rush-hours. One of the most egregious political events here was in 2012, when Paul Ryan came to town for a fundraiser up near the Galleria and resulted in the Downtown Connector being closed northbound at the evening rush hour. Great timing…and he of course had not even been elected vice president but was basically a congressman who was Romney’s ill-fated running mate. But I guess just being a candidate for some offices is enough to warrant the so-called royal treatment—blue lights and loads of SUVs and your own open road.
