Has it really gotten that partisan that not even one purple state democrat wouldn’t vote for nomination, whoever it might be? To think not that long ago voting on judges was nearly unanimous a lot of the time.

Re: Netflix junkie

There’s an Australian show called The Letdown about new parents that’s pretty great so far.

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

How bad is it? Should I sacrifice a dove or a feral cat? Trick question; it will be a feral cat. Good call, Kriegs. Doves are the wrong animal in this situation. If I'm reading the room correctly, we may need a horse head. I thought the Canadian mafia just gently slapped people with soft pillows. S...

Still on the ipad, unfortunately. Racial justice. :-/
