No, Mike Pence is not the answer we are looking for. Nor any other GOP daddy. Their day culminated in their adopted son Trump.

Bmaz is a rather large saguaro cactus in the Southwestern Sonoran desert. A lover of the Constitution, law, family, sports, food and spirits. As you might imagine, a bit prickly occasionally. Bmaz has attended all three state universities in Arizona, with both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Arizona State University, and with significant post-graduate work (in physics and organic chemistry, go figure) at both the University of Colorado in Boulder and the University of Arizona. Married, with both a lovely child and a giant Sasquatch dog. Bmaz has been a participant on the internet since the early 2000’s, including active participation in the precursor to Emptywheel, The Next Hurrah. Formally joined the Emptywheel blog as an original contributing member at its founding in 2007. Bmaz grew up around politics, education, sports and, most significantly, cars; notably around Formula One racing and Concours de Elegance automobile restoration and showing. Currently lives in the Cactus Patch with his lovely wife and beast of a dog, and practices both criminal and civil trial law.

Well, I don’t know why I came here tonight
I got the feeling that something ain’t right….

And he does care about the job of AG being performed well https://t.co/ctl6NOxuMb — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) July 24, 2017 This reporter is old enough and smart enough to know and understand exactly […]

I have been somewhat beyond stunned at the Emm Ess Emm rich to yammer and bloviate about the necessity of Rod Rosenstein to “recuse” because he is “conflicted”. It is a stupid load of nonsense. First off, the discussion appears to be lead by media voices that would no know actual criminal law if it […]
Time to pay attention: Unlike Star Wars with Obi Wan Kenobi, these ARE the droids we should be worried about.
Before there were internet “memes” there were still plays in words that conveyed huge situations beyond the mere words. One was “A Night To Remember”. Yes, even before the famous movie (and before the sappy and stupid “Titanic” decades later), it was an earlier book about the Titanic disaster. There are daily shipwrecks as significant […]
The internet is a strange, yet consummately wonderful place. It allows for a feed from thought leaders and journalists, and with a new age real time speed emphasis, with the ability of other, and different on a granular level, voices to respond. It is a wonderful, even if still difficult, medium of interaction. Twitter is […]
As you may have heard, President Trump has just fired FBI Director James Comey. This is truly Nixonian Saturday Night Massacre level action. Trump previously ran on, indeed got elected on, and likely only on, the scurrilous rogue comments of Jim Comey starting with the rogue July 5, 2016 press conference where Comey went off […]
