"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Calling Message Control. Come in, Message Control!

The conservatives on the MTP panel this morning (forgive me, I've been sick this week, that's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it!) allowed that Trump at least lacked message control.

That's a "lack of message control" the way a drunk passed out at the wheel of a speeding car is "not fully in control of the vehicle."  There isn't even a message in those tweets, just sheer blithering lunacy.  To begin with, if Obama personally ordered the wiretapping of Trump Tower, and such wiretapping was conducted, that would indicate government corruption on a scale that would make Watergate look like a Sunday school lesson.  It's simply impossible to imagine the layers of government that would have to be complicit in that act, and none of them would leak the information?  Or simply refuse to so grossly disobey the laws?

And then the idea that any U.S. government official who had any contact with any Russian government official at any time means Trump's staff is exonerated.  And don't get me started on a tweet about needing a "good lawyer" from a man who hires the Attorney General of the United States.
