      Something strange happening in the US when the commenters at the Hill are pro PBO – first time I have ever seen comments at that website on the side of the President. It’s almost as if folks now are realising what they are about to lose. Why does someone have to be gone before folks will admit to the good that they do.

      Glad to hear that! Just heard about that effer on MSNBC. Lock him up. (Now we know where Trump gets many of his talking points – his ex-butler.) (Gag.)

          ❤ So sweet.

          Guess what! He's coming home tomorrow! The plastic surgeon told him even HE was surprised with how good everything looks, and how fast he's at the point of discharge (and Steve was told in advance that part of the surgical team would be the strictest relating to letting him go home). Had all tubes removed this morning, but for one small drainage thingie related to the plastic surgery, which he'll take with him. Has gone walkabout 4 times daily in hospital corridors since Tuesday. (Learning how to breathe differently and normally, now that he's all sewn up, but we won't go there.) He says he is READY to come home. He has to go back to see the plastic surgeon on Tuesday, but he's otherwise good to go.

          Prayers work! Thanks for your good thoughts, GGail, as well.

    GE TODville.

    Great tweet roundup, NerdyW!

    Love the reminders of just how awesome PBO was at his final WHCD. We should be reminded every day, just to cleanse ourselves of the nonstop MSM all-Trump-all-the-time BS.

    Wish there were a way to have MSM respond to this truth:

      re: Appalachia (posted at TOD yesterday):

      Commenters to this tweet don’t consider some portions of this map as Appalachia, but from a geographic definition, this area is all the same mountain range which has different names assigned by local White people.

      During the 2008 campaign, I recall a slew of articles analyzing the “American” descendants” of Scots-Irish immigrants in this region, specifically to refute the notion of people in this area being racist (against an African American candidate).

      Now that it’s abundantly clear that racism is THE theme of Trump’s candidacy and support, crickets from MSM.

      And for those pundits who consider West Virginia primary as important, they overlook the fact that WV is still registered-Democratic state:

        Actually, the town I live outside of was one of the few Southern hubs (probably the only Southern hub) in the Underground Railroad. The Mennonite church in Boone was helping so many people who escaped slavery get through the mountains that a lot of them stayed. Because Mennonite congregations split off when the church gets large enough to found another church and the African-American members could not really move as a group before the Civil War, the church eventually became what is apparently the one African-American Mennonite church in America.

        While not everyone in the town was actively abolitionist, the fact that they were doing all this had to be obvious – the town was tiny in those days and a whole free black congregation right in the middle of things was about as subtle as a thunderclap. So the numbers of townspeople passively helping or at least turning a blind eye had to huge.

        The area was also heavily settled by Union soldiers who received land grants after the war.

        Having said that, we’re one of the three or so counties in western North Carolina President Obama won both times.

        So there is that.

      meta did you have a awful day on twitter? I’m sorry.

        A lot of garbage today: Trump, Ryan, Trump’s butler, assaults on Trayvon’s memory, etc, etc, etc.

          I was learning and doing well on Twitter had a lot of followers, got a lot of likes. I also liked and retweeted meta a lot. Had to leave for my sanity. I weaned myself off will never go back to such bigotry and racism. Now and again I retweet something to do with the President or his wife and their accomplishments.

      jtp, no the other one, was the furst.

      jtp, no the other one, was imported from another place.

      so, the tripliglets, are theirs.


      I don’t allow inbreeding. So, you want the mini-jtp’s? Going free.

    So excited, my long-awaited copy of Hamilton will be delivered in a few more days!! I suspect I have a second edition, as I had to wait a number of weeks, but slow off the mark with that one! Oh well. BUT: I urge everyone to seriously consider adding a soon-to-be-released copy of The Spirit of Villarosa to your collection. My pre-ordered, signed copy arrived last week, and I am riveted with the father/son story. I know y’all will just love it!
    http://www.thespiritofvillarosa.com/pre-order/ Don’t miss out on this one! ❤️
