In honor of #NationalLazyDay, I present Toby and Schnitzel, who are as lazy as they come.


We now have a date for SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings:

That gives the GOP two months to push Kavanaugh through before the midterms commence. The Dems need it to go right up to November 6 — and beyond — so we're in for a lot of political theater between now and then, along with the usual weeping and gnashing of teeth from the Dems.

The DNC served WikiLeaks with a lawsuit — on Twitter:

Apparently you can't send a messenger to the WikiLeaks servers to deliver court docs in person (obvs).


As CBS News first reported last month, the DNC filed a motion with a federal court in Manhattan requesting permission to serve its complaint to WikiLeaks on Twitter, a platform the DNC argued the website uses regularly. The DNC filed a lawsuit in April against the Trump campaign, Russian government and WikiLeaks, alleging a massive conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor.

All of the DNC's attempts to serve the lawsuit via email failed, the DNC said in last month's motion to the judge, which was ultimately approved.

The lawsuit was served through a tweet from a Twitter account established Friday by Cohen Milstein, the law firm representing the DNC in the suit, with the intent of serving the lawsuit.

In April, WikiLeaks tweeted that it had already read the lawsuit: "Democrats have gone all Scientology against @WikiLeaks. We read the DNC lawsuit. Its primary claim against @WikiLeaks is that we published their 'trade secrets.' Scientology infamously tried this trick when we published their secret bibles. Didn't work out well for them."

Was the DNC hacked again or did WikiLeaks actually receive the complaint via email? It's not clear, but what is clear is that we've entered the brave new world of social media lawfare.


"Stop giving in to racists and child rape apologists."

To be fair, this is just some #Impeach45 "Resist" idiot on Twitter, but the connection between Xenia Orona and Sarah Jeong is interesting.

To be clear, I never called for Orona's firing, but it makes sense politically. I don't think David Garcia will be able to fully distance himself from the stain of hiring her.


David Garcia REALLY needs to read PJ Media.

Check out this gem. David Garcia responded to Brahm Resnik's questioning about Xenia Orona, saying, "It's unfortunate that we had a staffer, who on her personal account, years ago, posted some remarks that are not reflective of our campaign."

Sorry, Mr. Garcia, but these tweets were mere months ago. Orona called America a "sh*thole country" in January.

So either David Garcia did not read my story — the story that led Orona to tender her resignation last night — or he was trying to deliberately mislead Arizona voters.
