Kevin McCarthy Can STFU About “Abdicating Responsibilities”

From Political Wire, (My emphasis):

“House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) wants to know why Rep.-elect Jimmy Gomez (D-CA) hasn’t been sworn in, saying the seat’s ‘elongated vacancy’ is ‘an abdication’ of his responsibilities,” the Los Angeles Times reports.

As opposed to say… holding a seat on the Supreme Court hostage for more than a year… or suspecting your candidate for President of being paid by a foreign government, and covering it up… or refusing to meet with constituents… or say, doing THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS WANT.

Go ahead, throw your beer bashes about screwing America; your day is coming, and it won’t be pretty, trust me.

Kushner, Amateur Diplomat, Blows Middle East Gig

kushner diplomatA word of advice to the guy-currently-residing-in-the-White-House: Don’t send an amateur to try and end a 70 year old Middle East Conflict. No matter what your greatly inflated ego tells you, simply being a Trump, or Trump-in-Law, doesn’t part the waters.

I’m not sure which is more ludicrous – that Trump thought Kushner was the boy for the job, or that Kushner thought he had a clue what he was doing.

As ABC News reports:

In an interview with the New York Times in November, Trump said he “would love to be able to be the one that made peace with Israel and the Palestinians” adding that it “would be such a great achievement.” Kushner, who is Jewish, “knows the region, knows the people, knows the players,” Trump told the Times in the same interview. The night before his inauguration, Trump reportedly told Kushner, “If you can’t produce peace in the Middle East, nobody can.”

WHAT?

Why, because he’s vacationed in Israel, his Daddy knows Netanyahu, and Bibi has visited Kushner’s family in the U.S.? That’s what passes for diplomatic creds now? Hell, if any random Jewish person has a leg up on Middle East peace, why not send Adam Sandler, or Billy Crystal; at least they’re entertaining… and likable.

But let’s look at just a partial recap of previous attempts at peace in the Middle East, shall we? (You can read the details of each at BBC News.)

 And those guys weren’t AMATEURS.

The merry band of Nazis, Neophytes, Nincompoops and Knuckleheads currently infesting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue treat world affairs like a board game. What’s next, Sean Spicer negotiating with ISIL?

Megyn Kelly Is Still No Journalist

Megyn Kelly left Fox (ahem) “News” in April for a reported $15 to $20 million contract at NBC. Seriously, NBC? For a partisan hack?

Anyway, Kelly scored an interview with Vladimir Putin for the debut of her new NBC show “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly”. By some accounts, she blew the opportunity by soft-balling the interview.

You might think she’d follow up with another big score, being a brand new show; but you would be wrong. She followed up with Alex Jones, one of the right wing’s biggest lunatics, and THAT’S SAYING SOMETHING.

According to the Associated Press, Kelly thinks “…it’s her job to “shine a light” on newsmakers”. Gee, what “newsmaker” could she “shine a light on” next, maybe Charles Manson?

On a positive note, the switch in stations has caused her to dress like an actual professional; but NBC doesn’t do T&A, so she’ll actually have to be good to keep this job.

For his part, the AP reports Jones wasn’t happy with the interview, or Kelly:

He said he expected a “rigged” report because a day’s worth of interviews will be boiled down to an 11-minute report. “They’re scared of what we’re covering,” he said. “They’re scared of what we’re doing.” Jones also described Kelly as not feminine, cold and robotic. “I felt zero attraction to Megyn Kelly,” he said.

I’m sure she’s boo-hooing over that! Just a suggestion here Alex but, maybe YOU should buy a mirror.

Megyn Kelly might prove people wrong; but considering she agreed to lower the neckline and hike the skirt up for 13 years for a job, I’m not sure she considers herself a real journalist either.
