I sadly couldn't watch due to being at work.  From what I understand, Senator Harris was herself a former prosecutor, and Sessions was noticeably nervous at being questioned by her.  Were the interrupting parties Republican?

I went and put toasters in their kitchens.  Because some toasters broke and needed to be replaced.  So naturally they assume someone a) broke in and b) left a fully functional toaster there for no good reason.

My students seem to think there is a serial cat burglar breaking into kitchens to put toasters in there, and they are very concerned about it.

Please kill me.

It's extremely noticeable online, Gamergate helped bring it to the fore of social media and online culture, via /PUATheRedPill/ReturnOfTheKings/rape is awesome crowd and its since developed into an entire online media industry of its own.

You can accuse Gerry Adams of many things, but stupidity would not be the first thing that comes to mind.  He'll play it smart, with the longterm goal in mind.

The tabloids are also running scaremongering rumours that Sinn Fein are coming to London to take up their seats in Parliament and put Corbyn into power.

I'm pretty sure that, after a week of constantly pointing out that a NI party joining government would destroy the peace process, the last thing SF would do is do exactly the same.

The thing is, Congress can simply reinstate Mueller, which the Democrats have made clear they will do if he is fired.  But it's not so clear what the Republicans will do.  Hence the ratfucking, the media campaign to sway them via swaying the public.  We're already seeing the lower tier alt-lite outlets going with Mueller being in the pay of the Clintons etc.  Soon the larger rightwing media campaign will follow.  Get the mob fired up and you can do anything.

Surely if there are no more Nazis, it's OK to shoot them in video games?

I feel much the same upon learning internet Nazis are crying over the new Wolfenstein game involving shooting Nazis.

Sessions says he wants an open hearing now.

I suspect the administration is gearing up to ratfuck Mueller as special counsel.

He's only doing so in order to avoid a public testimony in front of another committee.

Instead of testifying publicly before the appropriations committees, where these matters could be discussed in the light of day, Sessions will appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The Washington Post and USA Today report that Sessions’ appearance is expected to be closed.

Cognitive dissonance is going to tear Scott Adam's head apart.  He's already reached the stage of long, rambling arguments with strangers on Reddit.

Apparently the departure was a sop to the Party who demanded that at least someone's head roll over the disastrous election campaign.

Meanwhile, we wont have a Cabinet announcement until Monday.  Why?  Our glorious Unionist overlords can't work on Sundays - too busy praying for god to smite homosexuals, abortionists and papists.  In other NI related news, marching season is almost upon us, which I'm sure won't go horribly wrong as a newly empowered DUP seek to flex their muscles and an already angry Sinn Fein become increasingly incensed.

I actually feel pretty sorry for Ruth Davidson right about now.  Her work in Scotland saved May's government from further defeats, and how is she rewarded for her effort?  With May creating a coalition with a party who think she's a sinner and abomination.  She's already ruled out splitting the Scottish Conservatives from the Tory Party, but if she did I don't think anyone would blame her right now.

I also feel kinda sorry for Alistair Campbell and Jonathan Powell.  For their many failings, they poured so much hard work into Northern Ireland, and they really did give a fuck about finding a solution and stopping the fighting.  And they've kept engaged in the process over the years, even out of government.  Watching May piss it all away for a lame duck Parliament must be infuriating.

Oh great.

Sinn Fein say the DUP being part of government contravenes the Good Friday Agreement.  And they're actually probably right.  Especially with the Stormont Assembly's breakdown of the power-sharing arrangement.  This puts the Tories unequivocally on the side of the unionists, when it promised under the agreement to remain impartial between unionists and republicans.
