Just a heads up. Schiff to be on Maddow tonight. I had not known that.

Was watching Cohen's lawyers and they were mostly stone faced until Repubs tried to say Cohen paid

the $130,000 to Stormy on his own. I guess it was Lanny Davis (not sure), finally broke out in a big smile. Not sure who else noticed that one.

These shrieking Republicans caused me to take my blood pressure pill a few hours early.

Half of them sound like they are going to go on a crying jag.

Meanwhile, the Dems seem measured and composed.

"It's A Mad, Mad, Mad Mad Wrld" 8 pm on TCM What a cast. The bit parts are at least as interesting.

Many that are listed as bit players had long careers. Saw this in our one screen theater as a kid. Best popcorn in town.

Did anyone hear anything about Rupert Murdoch visiting Mitch McConnell today?

I happened to have Thom Hartman on in the living room and thought I heard Thom say that Murdoch was seen heading into McConnell's office. I was in the middle of doing something and by the time I got back to the show they had moved on to other stuff. Might mean nothing, who knows?

With Shep Smith and Chris Wallace seemingly upsetting the Fox applecart lately, I wonder what is going on. By the way, thanks to all of you that post the Fox videos that are of interest to DU'ers, so we don't have to spend any time watching their crappy "news."

An underrated holiday dessert and not too hard to make.....Bananas Foster.

Not too heavy, festive, only drawback is to set yourself on fire. But I like to make it.

If I am in the wrong forum....well...ignore me.

Once Trump pulls our troops out of any hotspots he will have an excuse not to go visit them.

Somewhat sarcasm, but who ever knows what his motivations are? I don't. I don't think he always does either.

Another curious thing that is becoming more apparent. When the Great Negotiator gets frustrated he tends to just throw up his hands and say "Okay, have it your way!' This has manifested itself in just the last week or two. First with Schumer/Pelosi and now Erdogan.

A suggestion for a nice Christmas gift for that person who already has everything.

I notice a lot of posts on DU related to the passing of beloved pets. I lost my almost 18 year old Beagle/Bassett mix in March of this year.
Meanwhile I was trying to figure out what to get my 98 year old neighbor. She has a large extended family that pampers her and she wants for nothing. Her small house is already overcrowded with nic nacs and such. So trying to figure out what to get her was perplexing. My dog, Buddy, used to love to go lay by her rocking chair on the porch and she would scratch his ears and pet him. It was one of the highlights of both their days. She seldom comes outside in cold weather, but beginning in the spring he would beeline to her rocking chair when on his walks.

I hope it is not against DU rules to advocate for any specifiuc charity. If so, please delete this post. But what I ended up doing was using PayPal to make a donation to the ASPCA in memory of my Buddy and designate the Christmas card to go to my neighbor and the donation appear in her name. She will not have to pay anything or whatever. I hope it was the right thing to do. It brought tears to my eyes so I suspect maybe it was.


This is just a suggestion that I thought I would pass along to anyone trying to figure out what to get the person who has everything. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a wonderful 2019 to all.














Who is buying the "We caught ten terrorists" line? I'm not.

I am not knowledgeable about the "watch list." I always thought there was distinction between that and someone being an actual proven terrorist.

Just a question because I don't feel like looking it up. What does Rick Santorum do for a living?
