  1. Happy belated birthday, Don.
  2. I can't imagine why this is happening. White House Tries to Get G.O.P. to Water Down Russia Sanctions Bill https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/21/world/asia/trump-russia-sanctions.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news WASHINGTON — The White House is quietly lobbying House Republicans to weaken a bill overwhelmingly passed by the Senate last week that would slap tough new sanctions on Russia for its meddling in the 2016 election and allow Congress to block any future move by President Trump to lift any penalties against Moscow.
  3. Ossoff lost but you must not have read the article.
  4. What it would take to flip the HOR. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2017/06/21/heres-what-it-would-take-to-flip-the-house-to-the-democrats/?utm_term=.57a9c10f42d1 We went ahead and made a tool that simply lets you see how the House would shift if there were a universal shift in every seat from the 2016 House results. For example, if every D who runs in 2016 did as well as Ossoff they would gain 114 seats.
  5. Difficult to get a handle on how much was spent. 2 Republican groups spent 13 million on Handel. http://politics.blog.ajc.com/2017/06/19/the-race-for-georgias-6th-district-now-costs-more-than-50m/ https://www.publicintegrity.org/2017/06/20/20932/georgia-s-special-congressional-election-proves-all-politics-aren-t-local
  6. Ms RB and I had a fun time traveling Monday night at the Boston airport. Arrived at the airport mid afternoon for 7 PM fight to Richmond VA to learn the flight was delayed 2 hours. One hour later the flight was delayed until 2:15 AM. Short time later it was moved up to 1:14 AM. Then back to 2:15 AM. At 1:15 AM it was cancelled. Next available flight to Richmond - 9:12 Tuesday night. Called Amtrak and at 3:30 AM we arrive at South Station for a 6:10 departure to Richmond. Almost 11 hours later we arrive and take a taxi to the Richmond airport parking lot where I had forgotten where I parked. A very nice shuttle bus driver drove us around the lot to find the car. Finally arrived home 22 hours later than we expected to.
  7. Southeastern Virginia is no picnic for heat and humidity in the summer. When I return from Utah from my annual trip there I feel like I'm walking under water.
  8. Didn't know this until two days ago but there are several members of the House who don't live in the districts they represent, both R ans D. I was surprised to learn that.
  9. Disappointing loss for D's but R's shouldn't be too happy. All of the D candidates in special elections have overperformed in normally safe R districts. Handel has been in politics in the district for 15 years (I think). And, its not as if Ossoff spent millions and Handel spent nothing. She also spent millions.
  10. Where do you come up with this nonsense?
  11. And, when originally published WW was in black and white so no hint of red, white,and blue.
  12. In the Wonder Woman comics her outfit was red, white, and blue but she wasn't American, she was an Amazonian from Themyscira (had to look the spelling up) wherever the hell that is. She was part of the Justice League of America with Superman, Batman, and the Flash, Green Lantern, etc. In the Superman tv show he fought for "Truth, Justice, and the American way" so maybe that's why some peeps think she was American.
  13. Tweet from Gary Kasparov I wish Trump would decide if Comey is leaking or lying, because accusing him of leaking lies doesn't make much sense.
  14. Parallel universe.
  15. Yes, from Swamps Digest.
