Thursday Open Thread [9.25.14]

Filed in National by on September 25, 2014

Sorry everyone, for my absence. I was sent to Mississippi for work… er ah… to combat evil. The place is so evil that they grow evil in fields as far as the eye can see:

The only good thing about the trip was the 2 hour layover in DC, in which you get this view upon take off.

I ran into / saw / knocked over three Senators in the airport. Can you name them?

Tomorrow we will have a full polling rundown.

    That sounds about right DD. As far as the eye can see.

    Wonder what this portends for the Ballmer era of the clippers?

    “Most of the Clippers on are Windows, some of the players and coaches are not,” Ballmer said.

    “And Doc kind of knows that’s a project. It’s one of the first things he said to me: ‘We are probably going to get rid of these iPads, aren’t we?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, we probably are.’ But I promised we would do it during the off season.”

    Caldwell Jones didn’t need Windows or Apple.

    President Obama’s comments to Eric Holder on his resignation today.

    Thanks, Eric, you have been a good man, I doubt I will be able to find anyone that is both as loyal, and as sneaky as you, but I will certainly try.

  5. John Manifold says:

    Derek Jeter and Eric Holder bow out on the same day, each with a GWRBI.

    “I doubt I will be able to find anyone that is both as loyal, and as sneaky as you, but I will certainly try.”

    The easiest way to achieve that would be to look among Republicans.

  7. Geezer says:

    @JM: I will always treasure that throwing error he made in the early innings. Jeter’s, not Holder’s.

  8. John Manifold says:

    23,000 innings, 12,500 plate appearances and scattered chipmunks focus on a no-damage throwing error. Such is the focus on the forest.

  9. Geezer says:

    I should have guessed you were also a Yankees fan.

    It was a joke. I found the end of the game touching, even for a Yankees hater like me.

    I hope the new Attorney General will throw a banker in jail. If that is not possible, perhaps we could indict someone on torture, or that fast n furious clusterf**k.
