    • Rationality Is A Process, Not A Conclusion (Nuclear Weapons Edition)
      A lot of mistakes come from assuming rationality means “thinks the same way I do” rather than “reasons from premises I might not share.” Left than 1/1000 economists predicted the financial collapse, because they reasoned from assumptions like “the market is self-correcting” or “housing prices never go down.” (Sometimes both at the same time, which is rarely […]

Drip, Drip, Drip

Have you seen this bonus clip from the January 6 committee today? (Of course you have but the lurkers might not have seen it).

Check it out and I’ll meet you underneath:

Tomorrow’s hearing has been postponed. The excuse is that they need to work on their audio/visual production values. I could buy that. But if they told me that more Team Normal people are running just as fast as they can to get what they witnessed on record, well, I could buy that too.

There are some pretty terrible people who visited the White House but there were some people who clung to professional ethics. It’s giving me mixed emotions because on a typical day, we could expect Liz Cheney to vote against the bill to check gouging on gas prices and for the lot of the Republican Party elected officials and advisors to scheme to end social security and Medicare as we know it.

Question: If given the choice, would Republican voters prefer unlimited, unregulated guns or the social security and Medicare they’ve worked for their entire adult lives?

I’m looking forward to the rest of the hearings now. The committee has leaked teasers like “scenes from the next episode”. They’ve structured the presentation so that there’s a clear narrative forming: Trump knew he lost but he decided to lie anyway in order to hang on to power, cripple the election process and for personal gain. Hundreds of millions of dollars were donated to Trump’s fictional election defense fund. Very little is known about where that money went with the exception of $60,000 for 2 minutes of Kimberly Guilfoyle’s presentation skills.

The flood gates are opening. The White House insiders see that it’s safe and they want to set the record straight. It’s probably a lot worse than we know. The above clip is just the beginning.

  1. I’m trying hard not to become a fan of Liz Cheney, because of course you are right that she would vote 99% with the Trumpists. But she has been relentless, she has poise and intelligence, and she doesn’t worry about going too far and offending someone.

    She delivered a great teaser to Thursday’s hearing. I really want to see many more people than Trump be implicated, as there was corruption and sedition from many. The crucial key is if enough people realize that what was done was far worse than just the violence. The “steal” theme is what allows them to rationalize that all these people were just trying to fight for justice, rather than overthrow the legitimately elected government. It is not something that can be “moved on” from, it is the worst treason in American history.

    • IMO Liz Cheney is proof that there can be honorable Republicans… note I said honorable not reasonable. If you vote the party line 99% of the time you are not reasonable in my opinion.

  2. May Drip Drip Drip soon become Niagara Falls. It’s been such a long time coming!

  3. I sincerely hope the floodgates are opening. Republicans are starting to appear with flop sweat for sure.
