  1. I wonder what percentage of brackets are going to have Gonzaga as the national champion. 65%? I bet a good percentage have Illinois, but potentially top 10 KenPom Loyola and Ok St seems like a really tough road. Maybe Baylor as a value pick? They were really just as good as the Zags until they went on covid pause. Totally reasonable to think they'll play themselves back into shape. I know a 1 seed isn't really "value" but still.
  2. Not even to mention that their 3 and 4 might not even actually play in the tournament. At the very least they won't be practicing much or at all before tip time. Virginia was the top overall seed also in 2018 when the 9 and 11 played in the Elite Eight. If Gonzaga wasn't so freaking good this year, I'd sort of think we were headed for something similar (not losing to a 16 but having a chaotic region).
  3. I see that they left "Dear Senator McConnell" on the cutting room floor. Probably a smart edit.
  4. I don't think this is going to help with that. He can always run Don Jr. as a third party candidate to screw the Republicans if he feels cheated. I'm a little surprised we haven't heard that leaked in the couple of hours since Liz Cheney and McConnell's ideas have leaked. "My trememendous supporters are great people. They election was stolen and now Spineless Mitch has deprived me of my chance to win another landslide WITHOUT CHEATING. He knows he could never run a campaign as brilliant as me. I urge all my supporters to give Don Jr. your full and complete support. PATRIOT!"
  5. If Trump resigns, does Pence get a library?
  6. I didn't realize Uncle Leo was one of these Qanon people.
  7. I think it's clear that if McConnell wants it to happen, it's a done deal. However, and this is baseless speculation, I wonder if McConnell is floating this for the business community. There have been several Republican senators over the past few days that have given some kind of "we'll have to see what the House sends us" line. Which is perfectly reasonable. But whatever you think of Mitch, he's a brilliant tactician. I wonder if we could be setting up for "we wanted to get convict him, but what they sent us just didn't fit" as outreach to some of the businesses and donors who have annou
  8. I think the analysis has to go a bit further than the silly usage of treason as the underlying felony. The Supreme Court has previously held that when a federal statute uses the generic "burglary" that it means "an unlawful or unprivileged entry into, or remaining in, a building or other structure, with intent to commit a crime." Taylor v. United States, 495 U.S. 575 (1990). If I'm @Dinsy Ejotuz's hypothetical "aggressive prosecutor", I'm arguing that I have underlying "intent to commit a crime" in spades. Theft, the execution of the Vice President of the United States, sedition, etc. It
  9. A blue check mark reporter also saying the murder was committed using a fire extinguisher.
  10. Damn. NPR is reporting the DOJ is conducting a murder investigation (duh). The penalty for 1st degree murder in the federal system is either life in prison or the death penalty. The federal felony murder statute encompasses burglary (breaking in and stealing stuff). Felony murder means you can be on the hook for a murder that one of your accomplices commits if you are committing a burglary. Merrick Garland was one of the top prosecutors on the McVeigh death penalty case. It will be interesting to see how the DOJ handles this. There's zero chance they charge any of the terrorists who
  11. "[L]eading a debate on the senate floor for voter integrity" is the Orwellian part. A dude who bills himself as a "constitutional lawyer" (whatever that is) not understanding the First Amendment is the funny part. This guy running for president by inciting a bunch of cop killers is the infuriating part. Edit: Nate Silver beat me to calling Hawley's dumb statement Orwellian.
  12. Thanks for posting. I disagree that the others pushing back the fence and trying to hold position, and also trying to detain one of the guys who got through the fence until they were overrun and one woman was pushed down and looked to be hurt, is "letting it happen." But I think we're on the same page that these guys were way outnumbered and didn't have a lot of options. Total failure of leadership. I think this video also puts to rest my one big area of complaint with the front line Cap police. I wonder if the actions in this video happened earlier in time than the video that got out yes
  13. I think Lindsey Graham got into the whipped cream vodka, but I like him a little better this way.
  14. I'm not sure I'd go that far, but I'd 1000% vote to convict and remove Trump if I were a US senator sitting on an impeachment trial. I'm not sure I've ever thought that about any president. Maybe Nixon. Definitely not Clinton or Trump the first time. This has gone too far. This has to stop.
  15. But I'm definitely glad Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz got their 2024 presidential campaigns kicked off.
