(Business Insider)   Ty Cobb uses White House email to have a profanity-laden email exchange where he tries to justify working for Trump: "Kelly and I are the adults in the room." Bonus: The ramen salesman he was talking to referred to Cobb as "an old baseball player"   ( businessinsider.com) divider line

I don't know. I tried to read the whole thing before submitting and I think I could feel my brain die a little. but the worst part is I can't tell if BI is responsible for shiatty formatting or if the emails themselves were just mildly incomprehensible

I was going to lambaste subby for a headline that reads like a fever dream, but TFA itself is an equally incomprehensible jumble, so GIGO, I suppose.

I don't know whether to applaud the ramen guy for emailing Cobb and chewing him out, or curse him for the mess of an article that his results produced. If you're going to go digging for dirt on someone, try to at least write with some level of comprehension before you hand it over to reporters.

Also, Cobb writes official emails with cell texting abbreviations. So professional.

Finally: This s--- is real and real time.

Did he just acknowledge that the Russian investigation is legit and a huge problem? Sounds like he may have some grasp of reality, but I don't know if that's in favor of Two Scoops or if that screws over the country.

If I remember correctly, aren't both of them glorified ambulance chasers in practice? Seems to fit with their inability to be professional when in communication with people

Aliens! Get the Hell off the web! Farkers are trying to communicate.

It is hard enough with spell correction. If you start jumbling all the words around, you might as well be broadcasting in Finnish!  Sometimes all we Farkers have is syntax. The semantics are all shot to Hell.

Ty sits up late into the night strumming his guitar, composing his wistful ballad, "Kelly and Me."

Now and then a salty tear curls its way down his creepy, creepy, creepy mustache.

He would try yet again to sing it to the chief of staff, but he's fairly certain the same's threats on the last occasion were not made in jest, and if he has tender, poignant feelings about anything other than the chief of staff, it is his creepy, creepy, creepy mustache.

A clock chimes somewhere in the distance. A neighbor shouts at him to shut the f*ck up.

This moron thinks Russia is our friend against North Korea. You know, if I didn't think Putin was already pulling strings in that theater, this would plant that idea in my head.

Kasowitz never had good sense. Not sure about the baseball player, but considering he is dead and was hired by Trump I don't think the best of him.

"Cobb replied: "Dude U have no idea! I walked away from $4 million annually to do this, had to sell my entire retirement account for major capital losses and lost a s---load to try to protect the third pillar of democracy. Your hate I will never understand as an American. Hope you get help!"

So you take losses in settling possible COIs to work for someone who flaunts his COIs.  And will drain your dignity and eat your soul.

Jesus, is this that stupid game where you keep pressing the autocorrect word suggestion?

Fine, I'll play:
"And of course the first woman of the year is the one who is a very good person," Cobb wrote, "That a man of course that is not too bad at all but that he's the only person who can be a nice person I'm sure"

... sigh, even that's too lucid

Not at all.  I prefer clients who don't constantly make their problems worse, and who pay attention to what I tell them.  Oh, and who pay their bills.  While a client who is constantly in trouble might be regarded as inventory, most of us see them as not worth the time, trouble or money.  But there's always someone up for the job.
