Wednesday's HOT MIC
Book her, Danno.
Seriously, she did this.
Late on Tuesday evening, as Republicans moved to pass a historic tax reform package, Rosie O’Donnell – nemesis of Donald Trump and former television star – tweeted out offers of bribery to Republican senators to vote down the bill. She didn’t just do it once. She did it over and over again.
You can see the tweets at the link. Ben Shapiro also quotes the relevant law and concludes, "So Rosie actually broke the law with the tweet itself. Attorney General Sessions, get cracking!"
I think Ben was being snarky, but absolutely Rosie should be arrested. The serious reason is that we're (supposed to be) a nation of laws, not men -- and this is a serious crime, attesting to bribe senators. And it isn't like Rosie doesn't have the money to make good on her promised (?) bribes.
And I suppose another serious reason is that months and months of investigation have yet to show any "collusion" over the 2016 election between the Trump camp and the Kremlin -- but here we have a real-life case of a member of the Democrat-Media Complex attempting buy a legislative result from the US Senate.
And a less-serious reason for arresting Rosie?
Just imagine the conniption fits on the Left. And them imagine being completely and legally justified in inducing them.
And now, your Meme of the Day.
My decision to leave the Apple plantation years ago is forever being validated:
I know this means nothing to the Apple cultists. They love having their decisions made for them by the Mothership and paying handsomely for it. After my second Macbook went belly-up (But they never break! or something) with normal travel wear and tear I decided that nothing they offered in the way of well, anything, was worth the price.
That's some pretty fast trickle-down there. Ronald Reagan is smiling from the great beyond.
A nod to one of our own here because perfect:
A must-read twofer from Omri Ceren, who's been on a roll today.
Indeed. I think the Iran Deal has worked out exactly as Obama had hoped, otherwise he wouldn't have bothered selling out almost every damn thing to get it.
Beware the gentrifying beavers, yo:
