Interesting that the science seems to line up with real experience. What brings me comfort is that at least these folks- and likely most folks- are able to, or at least capable of, identifying the behavioral disorder and then actually being able to quit, or otherwise self-regulate. Seems to make the choice to indulge safer, I’d think.

Callista Gingrich has been confirmed as ambassador to the Vatican.

This CNA story mentions her adulterous affair with Newt and details how her singing led him to grace. They run what’s to me a flattering photo.

I’ve got a real long-winded rant teed up for this incompetent clownfraud, but I’m waiting for him to actually accomplish something more than being the token goon in the GOP primary.

It’s not worth your time and effort. Trump Republicans simply change the lie when their unavoidably called out.

It’s only natural that Donald “only I can fix it” Trump go to the crackerjack GOP Congress with the little things unworthy of the time required for Trump to handle himself…. Repeal and replace Obamacare, tax reform, end of year budget, DACA termination, end of CSRs, renegotiating an Iran agreement…. . I mean really, what could be more important to the country than turning veterans and rubes against black athletes, punching down on his cabinet, party and anyone else calling him a dangerous boob, and weekend golf. It’s hard work. He said so himself. . And “[j]Just so you understand,… Read more »

Looks like the Russians are going to try to influence this one:

So Trump failed to mention the American troops killed in Niger (probably because his staff worried about having a dotty old racist try to read “Niger” from a TelePrompTer). When reporters point out that he hadn’t even bothered to contact the families, he makes up the disgusting – and readily disprocable – lie that Obama and Bush didn’t call the families of troops killed in action. So what does Trump do when he actually picks up the phone? Tells the pregnant widow of a soldier KIA that “he knew what he signed up for.” I don’t know why I expected… Read more »
