The highlight of the Republican portion of Mueller hearing today was watching them just sputtering invective without actually asking a coherent question. And Mueller's patent response was f'n hilarious.

My new go-to phrase when dealing with asshats from this point forward: "I take your question."

Thank you, Bob Mueller.

Pulled this from an article in the responses:

https://qz.com/1674164/muellers-i-ta...-legal-expert/

Quote:
“‘I take your question’ is used often when the witness doesn’t know the answer to the question,” she said. It’s distinct from a straight “no” because it indicates that the answer may well be knowable, just that this witness doesn’t know it.

From a technical perspective, the answer can preserve the question for follow-up on the record. After the hearings, committee chairpersons give their colleagues a deadline for submitting additional questions based on the witness’s testimony and Mueller might be asked to provide a more substantive response.

Johnson notes that in the context of today’s hearings, and specifically the first instance when Mueller said “I take your question” after what she calls “a rant” by Republican Louie Gohmert of Texas, the response is also a way of saying, “I got you. I hear you.” But it doesn’t mean Mueller has an answer, and in this case it seemed to mean that the former special counsel wasn’t happy that Gohmert left no obvious question for Mueller to answer.

People tend to rationalize and double down whenever prophecies or big conspiracy events are supposed to happen.

I think there's a point where normal human rationalization goes into dysfunction, though, and I think if anyone is still a Qanon follower is probably veering that way.

OMG I love his excuses!
‘Like I was going to continue the revolution but the weather just wasn’t choice, so I stayed home instead. Besides this is fine, it’s FINE, ok guys it will be BETTER than what I promised, trust me! I obviously didn’t steal your puny amount of money, do you think I could buy such a huge place using such a tiny amount of money raised, I think not, which is proof I didn’t steal it.
