"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

If it bleeds, it leads

OMG!  Get this on the cable this weekend or justice IS dead!

Well, this sounds ominous:

Donald Trump has declared “mission accomplished” after a “perfectly executed” missile strike which cost $165 and killed no one.

And, indeed, the mission does seem to have been accomplished—cable news has been flooded with news about the air strike, which means trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen is free to smoke cigars with his buddies in the wake of his office being raided and tapes of conversations with various people in the Trump orbit possibly being taken by investigators.
Yeah, Michael Cohen is home-free now!

A New York judge made public a government filing on Friday that offered a number of clues as to the subjects of this week’s raids on President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

That filing—a response from the acting U.S. Attorney from the Southern District of New York to a motion by Cohen seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent the government from reviewing the material collected in the raids—makes a couple of things abundantly clear: The government has a compelling case for reviewing the material and Michael Cohen is in deep, deep trouble.

The filing confirms that “Cohen is under criminal investigation,” which led to the warrants for the FBI raids that President Trump called an “attack on our country.” (emphasis added because, well, you know....)
I mean, it's not on the news this weekend, so the criminal case against Cohen goes away, right?

You know, if Trump's example doesn't mark "paid" to the stupid idea that if the cable chattering class isn't chattering about it, it doesn't matter, then nothing ever will.


While Cohen was hangin' with his bro's on the stoop smoking stogies, his lawyer was doing such a bad job in court the Judge said Mikey had better show up Monday, or there'd be trouble.  Yeah, thanks to Syria, Cohen is free to smoke cigars until 2:00 p.m. Monday.  FREEEDUMMMBBBB!!!!!

It is one of the interesting things about the past fifty years that after the idiotic man-boy Ted Turner invented 24-7 cabloid news that people are even more ignorant about current events than they used to be. More TV equals stupider people, even when it's alleged news that they're watching. I'll bet the that FOX addicted nutballs watch more "news programming" than just about any other effective demographic group and they're ever stupider and more gulled for it.

TV does selling eyeball time to advertisers, everything they do, in the end, will be determined by that.

I had wanted to see Michael Cohen disbarred, now I want him in prison.
