Is that link to an article or a blog post?

That article is pretty weak journalism.

Eta I guess I'd put it on roughly the same level as a tweet from a random guy in a bar.

Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

So if Democrats take the House, and impeach both Trump and Pence, and the evidence is so egregious that the Senate has no choice but to convict them both, do you get President Pelosi?
lol

I think maybe you have to live here to really appreciate how much conservative media deceives and distracts half the country, and how dumb it has made them.  facts, logic, and common decency are all close to useless in our discourse nowadays.
on re-reading.... it was unfair of me to lol you like that.  you know your stuff about American politics.  and of all the posters here, I am probably the one who spends the most time looking for excuses to believe meritocracy will prevail.  or at least turn out not to be entirely dead.

No, it was fair.

We're now looking at 3 seats the Republicans now stand to gain (Conyers and Kihuen in the House, Franken in the Senate)

Lol, why does anyone reply to this moron?

I think you're forgetting the part where Al Franken is Jewish and Teeth is a moron who thinks that is what is important here.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand Charlie Rose:

Eight women have told The Washington Post that longtime television host Charlie Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas.

The women were employees or aspired to work for Rose at the "Charlie Rose" show from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. They ranged in age from 21 to 37 at the time of the alleged encounters. Rose, 75, whose show airs on PBS, also co-hosts "CBS This Morning" and is a contributing correspondent for "60 Minutes."

There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post. For all of the women, reporters interviewed friends, colleagues or family members who said the women had confided in them about aspects of the incidents. Three of the eight spoke on the record.

I wonder who tomorrow's shitbag is going to be!

As a Jewish man, I really do not know what to make of this. Like 90% of the accused men so far are Jews.

Oh for fuck's sake.

There you go girls, just lay there and take one or three for the team.
Pretty much what you're saying to the countless dead if you want compromise on a pro-war president, no?

No.
Why not? If you're willing to compromise your principles when it comes to life-and-death policy issues that affect thousands, then you should be willing to compromise on one sleazebag. I mean this completely generally--ditch Franken because he'll be replaced by somebody just as effective, so who cares. But we owe ourselves some account of when calculating political pragmatism (and its life-destroying consequences) are justified and not, and why.

3 more women have come forward today.  They've really opened Pandora's box.

It's amazing how far government has broken down. They have majorities in both houses and the White House, but they still can't manage any process beyond crafting a horrible bill in secret with zero study or outside input and then throwing everything the can grab at the wall at the last second to try to get something passed.

This is a pretty good indicator of just how bad all their ideas are.

To be fair, marriage at 16 still sounds like child marriage to me.
