Before I forget it completely, there's a lulzy component to this story that's well worth pointing out.

The Louisiana Supreme Court didn't actually rule on the merits of anything here. The public defender representing the defendant in this criminal case filed a motion asking the trial judge to exclude incriminating statements the defendant made to the cops. The trial judge denied that motion, and the public defender appealed. The court of appeals affirmed the trial court, so the public defender sought review in the Louisiana Supreme Court.

As is true everywhere else, the Louisiana Supreme Court has discretion to decide which cases it hears and which it doesn't. When supreme court justices voted to deny review, they're not obliged to say why and almost never do; they just vote and that's that.

In this case, the vote against hearing the appeal was 6-1. [Turns out the earlier reports of an 8-1 vote were incorrect; the Louisiana Supreme Court only has 7 justices.] That would have been that, but for the fact that one justice decided to write a concurring opinion explaining his vote. From that lone concurring opinion we found out about the "lawyer dog" stuff.

In all likelihood, none of us ever would have heard of this story had that one Louisiana Supreme Court justice been able to resist the urge to strip naked, don a propeller beanie, and finger-paint "I am a neo-Confederate shitlord" on his chest in feces.

So thank you, Justice Scott Crichton, dumbest of all dumb motherfuckers, for your complete lack of self-control.

Mary Franson, a GOP state legislator in Minnesota, is having a rough time. Last week a group of Democratic high school students from Franson's district asked to meet with her. Franson refused, getting her ass kicked up one side and down the other in a brief but entertaining Twitter battle.

As everyone knows, or at least should know, "quit while you're only this far behind" is not the Republican way. That being true, shit be like:
Observer: Holy fuck, that could not possibly get worse.

Rep. Franson: Hold my beer!
See, Rep. Franson is not at all worried about getting her ass handed to her, possibly on camera, by some high school kids. Instead, her TOTALLY JUSTIFIED concern is that the little scamps will ruin her life Roy Moore style by falsely accusing Franson of trying dry-hump their firm high-schooler legs and/or fondle their youthful junk.

So the inevitable question is: what lurid sex crimes does she have in her past? Is it irresponsible to speculate? It is irresponsible not to.

Sean Hannity tweets link to NBC News, instructing them to learn from the story. There's one small problem here: the link Hannity tweets is to NBC.com. Naturally, Twitter has a field day with this.







And so on.

I suppose this can go in here, new US embarassador to the Netherlands: 'I didn't say that, that is fake news'. Journalist shows him clip:
Quote:
@Nieuwsuur to new US ambassador: "You mentioned [..] that there are no go-zones in the Netherlands and that cars and politicians are set on fire."

Pete Hoekstra: "I didn't say that. That's actually an incorrect statement [..] fake news."
Christiaan Triebert on Twitter: "@Nieuwsuur to new US ambassador: "You mentioned [..] that there are no go-zones in the Netherlands and that cars and politicians are set on fire¦ https://t.co/HdsIWZVnMI"

That a start, at least.

Unfortunately, Trump would probably taste like pork belly. But, that's just American bacon, right? Everybody likes bacon.

I'm putting this here because I'm not sure where our "Conservatives are nazi trolls" thread is.
It started with,
Alt-Right's Kyle 'Based Stickman' Chapman goes back to jail - SFGate
Which led me down the rabbit hole of alt right crazy. Chapman was able to post his first $135K bail because he crowd sourced it online. What company is shitty enough to crowd source bail for a violent felon? Welcome to the world of wesearchr.reicht. A website designed a few years ago by an admitted alt right internet troll who managed to get permanently banned from twitter for asking for a hit on Derray McKessen. (This is all from his wikipedia, and do you know just how much of a unabashed shithead troll you have to be to have that stick to a wikipedia page?!)

WeHeilHitlr allows for bail crowd sourcing for alt-right members as well as to put out "bounties" on leftist heads for any information that could lead to their arrest (for being leftists of course, it's not like they beat anyone up or ran them over with a car or anything). And oh before you think I'm being hyperbolic, it's the Daily Stormers favorite crowd funding site!

The Trump supporting, libtard gotchaing, trans hating, bathroom bill supporting, Roseanne Barr/Conner threatened to quit either acting or twitter, no one's sure as her ramblings seem to match the coherency of Trump.
Roseanne Barr threatens to retire in huff over Twitter feuding with liberals

Unable to keep the two identities separate Roseanne Conner is now a Trump supporter and her dumb but lovable sister gets to play liberal strawman stand in,


After taping the show everyone is thrilled with the results, don't they look thrilled, they totally look thrilled,

Says in Dutch that the US government distanced itself from Hoekstra and that they say he made remarks he now realised were wrong and will give an interview today to patch things up. Sounds like they leaned on him hard. So more fun to follow.
