It does if you're trying to keep her from getting the truth out there...

It's a woman....

It seems he's unfamiliar that a woman is a human being.
 
2020-08-05 12:10:31 PM  
Shut up, Lady G. A real woman is talking.

I could be wrong, but i don't think he likes women very much.

I think Blanche is generally juuuust a bit conflicted over genders.

It's nothing but theater for the GOP.

Nah. He's mean to them to show he's a man's man. He's doing all he can to hide who he is. It's gotta be hard to contain yourself and project the person you aren't but think others expect you to be.

Everytime someone mentions the Logan Act I'd yell Wolverine!  That's why I'd never get elected to the Senate.

More, he's used to the privilege of getting his own way.  It's an entitlement.

D2S has a microphone in Blanches' ear and he's yelling "cut her off. Just cut her off."

Circusdog320: It's a woman....

It seems he's unfamiliar that a woman is a human being.


Yep, because every time someone says "Hey look, it's Bob," they're implying that Bob is an object.

FWIW I think there are grammar arguments to be made on both sides here, but as far as I'm concerned "it's a woman testifying" is the most appropriate way to make Leahy's point.

What you should do is visit the food court first and get some plastic knifes and tape them to the back of your hand.  When the moment comes, spring forward in one of wolverine's iconic attack poses and slash Graham with your psuedo-claws.

Don't every confuse their attitudes / actions. Truth be told, they probably don't give a shiat, but like someone said above:

I'd vote for you, even if that was your only campaign promise.

Sigh.

Wha? It happened in person, at the hearing, by a person at the hearing, right after he interrupted. Did you not watch the video?

Don't hassle Blanche too much.  Ever since this Covid thingie it's tough to get pool boys to come over to clean the pool.

This is a wading pool, Mr. Graham
Yes  and why don't you take off you shirt and clean it?
I guess I could just dump the water out, Mr. Graham
Take your shirt off first

I agree with the headline and concept, but for a good portion of the Barr hearing, especially at the end, Democrats were not letting Barr answer anything.  Just kept talking over him.

GOP is probably just doing turnabout is fair play, in addition to not wanting to let her speak.  Pure grandstanding in an attempt to try to make her look bad and somehow have that reflect well on the Dotard.

in the small bit that i watched, he was repeatedly asked simple yes/no questions and instead of simply  answering he started to go in detail about shrubberies and any other nonsensical things he could waste time talking about

One side cuts off people who are lying, one cuts off people who are telling the truth. Totes BSAB.

Barr wasn't answering; he was stalling

Lindsey Graham has a 1-point lead in the race for his South Carolina seat. Hose the airwaves down with this clip, and let 50% of SC's population know what he thinks of them. A few percentage points would be all it would take.

I would suggest Barr spent the entire hearing doing everything he could to not answering questions from Democrats and that's why he wasn't allowed to blather on incoherently to run out the congress person's time.

He was also obfuscating to run out time. He had no intention of answering the question, or any questions, in good faith. In the above example, she was in the middle of actually answering, and her previous testimony demonstrated clearly that she did not dodge questions or lie or obfuscate. To Barr that's his typical way of avoiding accountability. We've seen it over and over again.

You know if he tried that kind of crap in the real world someone would take him outside and slap the crap out of him.  And he would deserve it.

I don't think that's as incriminating as you think it is.  It's 3 and a half minutes of the Attorney General obstructing justice and declining to answer Congress.
