"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

I think this qualifies....


Charlie Pierce wondered if Trump would tie his shoelaces together.  I think he managed to:

“We want to do it better than ever before. We want to be looked at in five years, in 10 years from now, as this is the way to do it,” Trump said during a briefing in Corpus Christi.

He said working with Abbott “and his entire team has been an honor for us.”

“So, governor, again, thank very much. And we won’t say congratulations. We don’t want to do that. We don’t want to congratulate,” Trump said.

“We’ll congratulate each other when it’s all finished, but you have been terrific,” he added, patting Abbott’s hand. “And you’ve been my friend, too.”
Best recovery in history!  Even as the storms move north to find new victims, and the old victims are still trying to get out of flooded neighborhoods.  There are people down here from around the country, having bought boats and brought them here just to rescue strangers.  They'll be needed elsewhere before this is over, and they have nothing to do with FEMA or POTUS.

But hey, the guy who has done bupkis will congratulate himself when it's over.

As Charlie (again!) points out, the real help is coming from Houston itself (not to belittle the people flocking here to help).

He won't be joining Trump in the congratulations.  He's too busy.*

And in case you weren't sure who that strange woman was, she's wearing a cap to tell you.

Not an image we are likely to see this time....
