Tuesday morning open thread

I had to drive one of the children somewhere, so I am not anywhere near my computer. I am doing this little squiblet. on my iPhone, which is a challenge. (And did you know that AutoCorrect thinks that “squiblet” is “squid lips”?)

Anyway, until I’m back at my computer, please enjoy this open thread.

    Interesting it would default to ‘squid lips’. That’s more than an autocorrect, that’s a wholly invented class of being: squids ain’t got no lips! They have beaks, and beaks don’t got lips. Quite inventive of autocorrect to default to something that doesn’t exist, don’t you think?

    Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer: “Don’t hold this against me, but I’m going to blurt it out. How do I say this … men in the South, they are a little effeminate,” he said. “They just have effeminate mannerisms.”

    Schweitzer, let me introduce you to Trey Gowdy…..

    Ah, Sadie!!

    What a nasty pustulant he is (not Gowdy) Koskinen. He’s 74, so we both know that he’ll walk out and away from all of this with his perks intact. Not wishing any one ill – so I hope that he only gets sick enough to be put on a VA wait list for eternity.

    I am a big Trey Gowdy fan and would love too see him as the next Attorney General.

  5. sabawa says

    I second your endorsement of Trey Gowdy for AG, Sadie!! The one we have now is in contempt of congress which seems to mean nothing at all. Why does anyone have to obey laws when the ‘head cop’ has no regard for law and order? He is a disgrace and fits in nicely with the parasites at the White House.
