It wasn't treading water.  It probably wishes it was.

She's fine.  She knows she'll out live the farker.  If he doesn't dump her for another pay bimbo that talks funny later of course.  If I was her I'd be looking at the dates on the wills.

Hopefully that will serve as the bookend for the one that was fished out of a sewer drain 2 days after the election.

Not literally, please don't try to use eagles as bookends. I just meant that since there was one incident at the start, and now another one, hopefully this one signifies the end.

I spent a few seasons watching the Decorah eagles raise their young. It was very cool. Dad would bring in a nice big fish and mom would rip it apart while it is still wiggling. Now that is fresh food. Mom and dad covered in snow sitting on the eggs.

They track them and post the whereabouts. One was killed by a high tension line and they eagle proofed it. One year they installed hi def cameras and the eagles built a new nest. Always something entertaining.

https://www.raptorresource.org/birdca​m​s/decorah-eagles/

They live on a fish farm which is perfect for an eagle. Eventually I wondered if they could swim. Yep!

If the aforementioned eagle had been sold off to a giant food corporation controlled by a Russian oligarch (under a subsidiary of a shell corporation which is owned by Trump Enterprises) to make low cost, non-nutritious "food products" for the poor, that would be the completion of the metaphor

Maybe because it's the tab about politics.

But he is tacky enough to make for a Florida tag on the main page. Even without owning a golf course there.

I'd say it's been completed already.  Eagle falls into disgusting shiatpit, stuck there for a while, people cooperated to pull the eagle out and get it healthy again.  That's a metaphor I can get behind.

Biden + a bag of hair clippings and dead rats would be a better choice than what we've got right now.

Actually, the bag of hair clippings and dead rats would be a better choice than what we've got right now, even without Biden.

Maybe I am missing the metaphor here.....

Seems like the story was about a majestic creature that is supposed to be living on the waterfront eating fresh seafood, that found it made a small error to wind up in a cesspool that is unfortunately hurting attaching an unpleasant odor and possibly dirtying the fine plumage.

If you wash the shiat off a bald eagle trapped in a shiat bath, it is still a bad eagle.

Now, if you wash the shiat off a Trump administration, will anything remain?

Actually there is absolutely no reason that a former president that has already served two terms can't be elected vice president, and then become president again. You can only be elected president twice. You can be elected vp, get sworn in and if the president resigns, become president, and serve as many terms as president as the people vote you in as vp while doing this. Have to get a new president running late every two terms.

But there is nothing preventing Biden outright saying 'i pick Obama as vp, and after we are elected, I will resign and Obama will be sworn in as President for the next term" - the Constitution allows it. We could literally get 8 more years with Obama, if he wanted it.

Point taken. In her favor, It does seem to indicate that she's highly unlikely to fall in love with power. Quite the opposite.

I was given a tour our local treatment plant years ago and noticed a bright orange life ring and a long pole with a shepherd's crook on the end, hanging next to one of these sewage treatment pits.  I told the superintendent, "If I fall in, don't throw the life ring.  Just use that hook to push me under because I don't want to live after that.

The eagle might have fallen to shiat, but it wasn't its shiat. Other people caused that shiat, similar to what's happening in the US now. Destruction of property, looting, rioting, defunding of the police which causes more crime because suddenly we lack police force, the release of thousands of inmates for no good reason, cancel culture, the hypocrisy of certain political ideologies. Yes, the eagle remains free, but it's been shat on by others.

The Twelfth Amendment is on point here, stating: "But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States."

It is widely accepted that the Twenty-Second Amendment makes a term limited President constitutionally ineligible for the purposes of the Twelfth Amendment.

I believe that would apply the whole way down the Line of Succession, too - for example, if a member of the Cabinet is not a citizen they are constitutionally ineligible and therefore are not considered for the purposes of Succession.
