        Yes, I was trying to type ‘rolling in the floor laughing’, but darned if I could get it to come out right! 🙂

      Congratulations, MP! Pet that kitty for me! LP, these toons are horribly wonderful. Have to find some humor where we can.

      Have been off the grid for a bit. Preoccupied with my 93 y/o mother-in-law’s recent fall and surgery for a fractured femur. She made it through so far but is very debilitated from the Christmastime bout with a major kidney infection. Hope this is not the final downward spiral. She has been a tough Swede her whole life. My husband is hopping on a plane soon to Minnesota to be by her side for a week.

    Myanmar to begin new parliament session ending military-only rule.

    Myanmar’s parliament is convening for a new session on Monday to choose its first democratically elected government in more than 50 years.

    It will be an assembly dominated by MPs from Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD), which won 80% of elected seats in November’s poll.

    But a quarter of all seats are reserved for the military, which also retains key ministries under the constitution.

    LovelyPlains, I love your toons! Great choice.

    Good Evening TODVille.

    I was left behind writing about my anxiety with the Sanders, his sometimes-rant against POTUS, and definitely his unexpected success.

      Oh, and I forgot to say how frustrated I am when I get e-mails from Susan Sarandon or MoveOn.org asking me if I was “ready for a revolution” to support Mr. Sanders.

        NCLB, I delete these emails so fast, I don’t even know what they say. Sarandon made a vulgar, outrageous comment about Hillary Supporters that crossed every boundary of good taste. I completely lost respect for her.

    Sanders campaign is as dirty and sleazy as any I’ve ever seen. Accusing Hillary of voter fraud before the caucuses. https://twitter.com/deanbarker/status/693986785836322817CD

      57, he’s getting desperate, 57. A confident candidate doesn’t stoop this low unless his name is name is Trump.

        I hope he gets a dose of reality tomorrow, Jackie. He’s a mean, petty, little man.

          Hello 57&F,

          About to go make some dinner, but wanted to share my Yiddish thought about Jeb!? with you:

          You told me the other day that VP Biden was a “mensch” and, after I looked up the definition, I heartily agree!

          I would add that Jeb Bush is a “neb” 🙂

          His bumper stickers should read “Neb! 2016” 🙂

          I have to turn the TV off this entire weekend because I can’t stomach the “high” polls of both The Donald and Sanders. Frankly, I see the latter a mirror image of the former, particularly when the pundits repeat that “on both sides” people are angry. What are the people so fucking angry about? I have cancer and I AM NOT ANGRY.

            Everyone is “angy” because they don’t get their ponies and unicorns. I’m sick of that nonsense. Especially since the dumb voters don’t understand who they should be angry with, and it ain’t PBO or the Dems. Sigh.

            Ann Sulzer, one of the most respected pollsters in the country, always does the Des Moines Register poll, and the basic number was “high” concerning Sanders. But the internals were another story: PBO had 60% of new and young voters going into the caucuses in 2008, I think Sanders has somewhere in the 40’s. And of course MSM would NEVER mention this: Hillary’s supporters are VERY committed to her, and Bernie’s are wishy washy.

            A couple of weeks ago I talked to my best friend who lives in PA. Many in her family are ardent Bernie supporters, and she was a supporter as well. So we had a comprehensive “talk”. She doesn’t trust Hillary – God, I understand that. But I talked to her on Saturday, and she has flipped. We “of a certain age” remember McGovern, and she knows the country will be destroyed if we let the GOP win. And she said she has become more comfortable with Hillary due to excellent debate performances. And here was the kicker: her impression is that Hillary has learned from PBO and is actually capable of changing her perspective. Bernie thinks it’s 1967. HE is the rigid one. My friend was also appalled at his lack of interest or knowledge of FP.

    Has anybody shared the Legos explanation of the Iowa caucuses yet: http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2016/01/31/legos_help_explain_how_iowa_caucuses_work.html It’s pretty informative! Only 22 hours and 6 minutes left! 🙂

    Watching Grease Live on (yes, hate to say the word) Fox. I love Julianne Hough. Better than watching the MSM push Trump, Cruz and Sanders.

    saw a nasty tweet directed towards Joy Reid…looks to be from one of the Bernie crew…hard to know for sure…

      Love that man in the middle!

      The only thing I don’t like about this graphic – I’ve seen this wording used before – is the missing “Insurance” following “Unemployment,” at the end, but maybe not everybody notices. 🙂

    Still watching Grease as they do their audience reviews at the end. About that Live aspect, the second park shuttle driver ran over the curb in their big finale. Thought it was going to tip over!

    Since Thurs. six polls released on Iowa Caucus. Hillary leading in all of them. Latest this morning Feb. 1, from Emerson College, 51-43 Hillary +8.
