A hurricane is kinda like a pizza-shaped bear monster, sure. I just wonder if anyone called the police or EMA after the presser and asked what the heck all that pizza stuff was about.

Not sure what Stephen Miller is worse at: writing speeches or getting women to go out with him.

I’ve also struggled to understand Miller. Best I guess, he is still rebelling against his parents, and perhaps had a rotten bar mitzvah.

Georgia is planning to execute Keith Tharpe next week. There is little doubt regarding his guilt. The only issue is some unfortunate comments made by a juror, eight years after the trial.

Here’s an exchange between Vox’s Jeff Stein and Senator Isakson re: Graham-Cassidy: Jeff Stein: What is the policy explanation for the Graham-Cassidy health care bill? Johnny Isakson: Policy explanation? I’m not into policy, so I don’t really know. I’m into facts. Stein: [In a follow-up interview hours later on Tuesday] You were joking earlier, but what is the health policy in the Graham-Cassidy proposal that you like? Isakson:More state innovation. More input from the states. Stein:What does that mean, exactly? Isakson: The governors — I’m from a state that didn’t expand Medicaid, and the way we were going in health… Read more »
