(Twitter)   Guess there's a helluva ProPublica story about to drop that makes the West Virginian governor look like he's...well...the governor of West Virginia. That's a pretty damnable title next to "Hitler's mustache groomer" and "Sean Hannity's fluffer"   (twitter.com) divider line

I don't have lots of faith in ProPublica as a trustworthy news source.  I would normally ignore what they report but this sure seems to have made some people nervous so it might be worthy of some consideration.  If they have a story they can properly support - I would like to see it.

There used to be a private WWII museum in my hometown. I only got to go there once, but it was pretty great, and I got to go with my Dad, so that was special.

Anyway, among the items in the collection was Hitler's personal toilet kit, and one of the items in the kit was his mustache trainer, no joke.

But weirdest of all was his hand mirror. I still get a weird unease remembering looking into it. It was really a bizarre feeling - I looked into his mirror and saw myself, when he looked into he saw Hitler. Eerie.

So, does Sean Hannity's fluffer perform his services before or after Sean Hannity fluffs Dear Leader?

Or does he 'do his duty' during the Dear Leader fluff, in like an inhuman suck-a-pede sorta thing?

Inquiring minds need brain bleach.

I think it's pretty refreshing to see Jim Justice use a disclaimer to alert us that everything he's about to say is fake news. Honesty in politics is always a good thing.

You seem to have ProPublica mixed up with some blog like Daily Kos or that type.

ProPublica may be the best independent investigative news organization in the country.

There is no easier way to identify someone who is completely full of shiat than the non-ironic use of the term "fake news."

In this case, I was referring to a literal coal mine.

But make no mistake, as I've said before, Trump carried WV not due to his coddling of coal miners, because of his relatable father-daughter relationship.

Great_Milenko: There is no easier way to identify someone who is completely full of shiat than the non-ironic use of the term "fake news."


I received a letter at work declaring my statements fake news and asking what were my qualifications for making my assertions.

I work for a regulatory agency.  I asked them to send details on the house that was built because it didn't appear to match the plans we had in the office.

I really wanted to reply that I got my qualifications in kindergarten when I learned to identify that Box A doesn't look like Box B.

He also told me that Center for American Progress is one of the most conservative right-wing thinktanks in the country, so I'm pretty sure nobody should be going to him for advice on bias.

Off the cuff, I'd wager that at least 70% of the stuff linked here (and reported elsewhere) concerns stuff that might happen. Same reason that my sister finally said, "I'm so over Rachel Maddow!"

Not really that interesting. I don't really want to now about pending stories, because EVERYONE starts all of this idiotic random speculating, and half the time, the "bombshell" turns out to be pretty much a wet fart. Just wait until the story comes out, it's not hard.

Yeah, maybe that's why I've never watched Maddow. I don't even usually click on the videos when they accompany a story. She's not the second coming of Christ some think she is...

The weird thing (...well, oneof the weird things) is that I've yet to meet anyone here who actually likes him. He's a tremendous embarrassment, as if we need more, and the only time he's ever gotten any kind of positive reaction was the "follow the farking guidelines" quip a couple weeks back. We all know he's a crook who owes something like $1 or $2 million in back taxes and refuses to pay. His affiliation with Trump is another huge red flag for anyone paying attention.

Whatever this is, I hope it sinks him. The Dem candidate I'm backing and the one I'm seeing the most support for right now is Stephen Smith, who's running on a miniature New Deal platform and has the endorsement of one Elizabeth Farking Warren. I hope to hell we're smart enough to vote him in, but I don't see it happening, sadly.
