Is that why she always looks that way?  Why her one eye looks like it's trying to escape?

Oh-as for Kellyanne Conway, her performance was so insulting and asinine that it doesn't even deserve comment. The end.

Yeah, I saw both.  You know they've had a bad week when they sound out the whole Ministry of Propaganda to do damage control.

"...adding that Trump "is actually trying to enforce laws, not go around them."

Like the law that says the IRS has to hand over tax returns (including those of the POTUS) to the House upon request, no questions asked?

If you aren't trying to go around laws, then why would you need to offer a pardon to the guy you're giving orders too.  And you can't even say "I was just joking" because if he wouldn't be doing anything illegal, then where's the funny in offering a pardon?

Well, she did not specifically say ALL laws, or even WHICH laws, so technically she is being truthful.

It strikes me that a President telling someone to do something illegal, and then pardoning them right after that, would be grounds for immediate impeachment and removal from office.

Because his denials are so specific because he doesn't know how bluffing works.

Oh, the Yaller rose o' Texas, the cutest on the earth
her one eye looks at Dallas, the other at Fort Worth
Her ponytail's a dandy. That hairdo is a prize,
But it comes in handy when she's a-switchin' flies.

Her skin is red 'n' fuzzy. It feels just like a peach.
I looked her over from head to toe and she had one of each.
Her face has fallen arches. It hangs just like a sack.
She'd like to have it lifted, but she doesn't have the jack.

Agreed, I scrolled up to see who wrote it (just for future warnings) and saw "Daily Kos" instead of an actual person.

I don't like Trump, don't like a lot of things with what's going on right now.  This article - not helping.

Turns out that both of her eyes are perfectly fine. She just has a bad tell and they cross whenever she lies.

This is one place where the framers made a mistake when writing the Constitution. They should have made exceptions to the power of the pardon for both those that work directly for the person that holds the office of the President, and for those that follow illegal orders from the President, Vice President, the direct family of either, anyone who is on their direct staff, anyone that is part of the Cabinet, and anyone that reports directly to any of these people.

Of course, those that maintain the Constitution screwed up when they removed the 30,000:1 ratio for representatives and fixed the size of the House at 435. This is what gives rural states disproportionately so much power. 30,000:1 might be unsustainable, but with the smallest state having almost 600,000 people (Wyoming) a ratio of say, 200,000:1 would at least better represent the actual population.

brownribbon: Can we get a non-AlterNet source?


Why? It has her quotes, that's really all that matters.

At least on this particular story, this one's pretty easy. We know that the quotes are legit, because they aren't a surprise in the least, exactly what we would expect form her. Hell, in reality, we don't even need an article, subby could have started a discussion thread based entirely on what we all would have guessed her answer to be, this one's kind of a no-brainer.

There's so much in the Constitution that kind of relies on the sides being reasonable and willing to uphold their oaths.  But there's really not much that can be done if one branch of government just refuses to abide by the others.  Sure, Congress can remove the President from office -- but what do they do if he just won't leave?

If congress goes through the legal steps and declares that the President is no longer the President, and if a member of the Supreme Court swears-in the successor (doesn't technically have to be a Supreme Court Justice, but that would add a degree of legitimacy), then it's up to those that follow the President to actually follow the President, not the person formerly the President.

The former president refusing to vacate the White House is not of significant consequence. We do not run a king-of-the-hill government, occupation of a particular structure does not define the officeholder.

Because AlterNet is among the websites that can be described as Breitbart of the left. They get no clicks.
