    The man in question apparently is the leftie blogger/twitterer known as the Hoarse Whisperer.

    Because his secret service detail would let people just run up and hug him, given he has a history of being a hugging type of guy.

    The thing about many of their isn’t just that they’re not true. It’s that they can’t be true. Like the secret Service isn’t gonna let people just run up on Trump.

    But that’s the price of admission.

    I'm no lawyer, but I assumed that there was always a certain limit to the number of prospective jurors either side can eliminate for any reason. If not, what's to stop a hypothetical situation where, someone like, I dunno, a former president and his top-notch legal team to keep disqualifying every juror to delay the trial until after the election?

    It's not delusional sycophancy - it's a test a loyalty. Miller knows exactly what he's doing - he's issuing a false narrative that loyal people will have to agree with and support otherwise they will be outed for not being "loyalists".

    One of the better takeaways from the flawed yet interesting The Cleanest Race: How North Koreans See Themselves And Why It Matters for me was the author's contention that the most ridiculous claims about the Kims--as well as some of the laughably bad photoshopping sometimes used to support their wildest claims--are transparently ridiculous by design, and exactly for that reason. They force the population to twist themselves into cognitive knots convincing themselves to 'believe' stories about miraculous births on mountains and hitting 18 consecutive holes-in-one on a golf course.

    Adam Gold is the local sports radio guy. This tweet IMO just shows how mainstream soccer is now.
