The full frontal assault on the administration this week makes be think that this is deliberate. How do this many stories come out at once? Someone with an axe to grind? Or maybe one source leads to another being more confident and so on?
It's entirely possible, but that doesn't lessen my enjoyment.
All of Meddle is so good it's hard to choose. Fearless is up there, but so is "one of these days". For me, picking a favorite is almost as hard for Pink Floyd as it is for the Beatles.
How do you figure? You think someone had this as a file that was then hacked by the Russians?
Anyone who is mad that you missed their wedding to pursue a potentially life changing career opportunity is someone whose wedding you'd want to miss anyhow.
There's nothing inherently selfish in pursuing goals, even in the case when it means that you have to sacrifice some previously planned activities that are meaningful to you. The virtue of sacrificing your own interests for the sake of relatively meaningless social engagements is non-existent. I would argue the virtue exists much more in sacrificing for the pursuit of that which is meaningful to you. A well-written and sincere card can allay any negativity between you and your friend.
They started running a story later about a Clinton staffer who was killed who now supposedly was in contact with Wikileaks. I love it so much. I know I'll be disappointed in the end when things get worse not better, but I at least want to see Steve Ducey cry on air at some point.
On The Media did a great piece this week about what "The White House" means anymore in regards to sourcing a story. Their position is that it's absolutely meaningless, because Trump (a) doesn't have any real policy positions, and (b) intentionally gives staffers bad information in order to maintain his status as the only one who really knows anything. Hence, constant contradiction from the President about almost everything his people say. OTM's argument was that stories should no longer be sources as being from "The White House" but rather only specific individuals.
Schadenfreude doesn't begin to express how I feel about the prospect of conservative media tearing itself apart. One of the best parts of the Russia intelligence news was learning that while MSNBC and CNN (along with all newspapers) were going wall-to-wall on that story, Fox ran a story about Trump honoring the police. So priceless.
Also, it's amazing to see the list of deniers (Spicer, McMaster, The Russian Government, etc, etc), only to have the Man Himself come out today, and say, "Of course I did that, and I'd do it again." It's so beautiful it makes me want to cry.
Apparently what he did actually isn't illegal, because the president ultimately gets to decide what is classified. Go figure.
Possibly Turkey. He and erdogan have a special relationship, so all will be forgiven.
Also this is anther thing that happened:
