    Former CIA Director John Brennan said Sunday that President Trump called him a political hack in order to cast doubt on his and other intelligence agencies' conclusion that Russia sought to influence the 2016 election.

    “Well first of all, he was referring to us as political hacks because he was trying to delegitimize the intelligence community assessment that was done,” Brennan told CNN’s “State of the Union.”
    Bingo

    The problem there is Brennan is a liar too. Pretty bold-faced. He's just much better at it than Agent Orange.

    Finding an honest man in the intelligence field is like looking for a virgin in a strip club. At the end of the day you just want people who are at least lying for the right reason because public honesty is often bad policy in that field for pretty obvious reasons.

    With that said, **** Brennan. I've got no love for him, but he's not wrong here.

    I'd suspect many of the patrons of strip clubs are virgins.

    As usual, no one notices them.

    Nearly 40 percent of Alabama evangelicals said in a new poll that they are more likely to vote for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore following allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

    A JMC analytics poll found that 37 percent of evangelicals surveyed said the allegations make them more likely to vote for the GOP Senate candidate in the upcoming election.

    Just 28 percent said the allegations made them less likely to vote for Moore and 34 percent said the allegations made no difference in their decision.

    Is this a new super level of hypocrisy only available in the collector's edition or something?

    I saw interviews on Fox in Alabama. A lot of people saying the WaPo has zero credibility and it's a hit job. Probably would have had more effect if WaPo gave it to another organization to report. You know, like Mad Magazine.

    They actually are saying he'll get more votes now because he's playing the victim.

    The best was the reporters interviewing marchers and asking them what they were marching for and way too often the answer was "to remove the jews from power".

    Timely (and very funny) look at Benedict Orange and the art of trolling.

    Trump's attacks on the media are definitely working.

    Sometimes I think our mode of government is outdated, and meant for a time where you had to ride the Oregon trail and avoid dysentery to get to Washington/Ottawa to vote and with the internet representatives aren't not necessary. But then you see stuff Alabama and Poland and we are so dumb and uneducated. Not sure how much power we actually want to give to the people.

    Yup, giving the power to the people makes all sort of sense, until you realize what the average person is like.
