Rand Paul: Trump should use lie-detector tests to find anonymous op-ed author

I agree, and that should appeal to Trump’s instincts as the master of reality TV!

Here’s my pitch:

Imagine these tests as a TV event, kind of like LeBron’s “The Decision.”

In Part 1, we watch all the top people taking the tests. Some of them are as cool and collected as James Bond, but others are sweaty and beady-eyed. We get close-ups of their eyes, like Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach and “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”

In Part 2, we see the polygraph operator offer his conclusions, leading up to the big reveal, like the finale of every episode of Perry Mason, or so it seemed at the time, where the perp finally breaks down and confesses.

Needless to say, Trump comes in for the final minute with his signature move:

I don’t like reality shows, but I would totally watch the shit out of that!

Somebody has finally caught the Bandit

Unfortunately, it was the Grim Reaper. Ol’ Gator McKlusky has passed on, aged 82.

Burt Reynolds was once the biggest star in Hollywood. As Mental Floss pointed out, “Every year from 1973 to 1984, Reynolds was listed as one of Quigley’s ‘Top 10 Money Makers,’ and held the top spot on the annual poll from 1978 to 1982. The only other person to boast a record five consecutive years at the top of the list is Bing Crosby, back in the 1940s.”

I thought his last film, The Last Movie Star, was touching, and he was marvelous in it, playing a fictional version of himself. There must have been a lot of dust in my eyes when I watched it!

Warren calls for 25th Amendment to be invoked against Trump

What planet is she from? This is some kind of masturbatory fantasy.

First of all, she’s technically correct in that the 25th Amendment specifically covers this issue. As she mentions, if his subordinates feel he can discharge the duties of the Presidency, they should not be subverting him. If they do NOT think so, they should invoke the 25th.

In theory.

But that’s only a theoretical scenario, and has nothing to do with reality. The chances of removing a President this way are infinitesimal when his party controls Congress, because the actual removal process is political, not legal or medical. After various other tests have been met, ultimate removal requires a vote of 2/3 of BOTH houses of Congress. As I’ve noted before, that’s not going to happen unless Trump and Putin jerk each other off live on Fox News and shoot their loads on a picture of Jesus.

Maybe not even then.

It is actually simpler to remove a President by impeachment, which would require a 2/3 conviction vote only in the Senate, plus just a simple majority to file charges in the House.

If Warren wants Blond Elvis to leave the building, her party needs to win big in the mid-terms, and even then they will not have the Senate votes they would need. The Dems can’t force this to happen. Only the GOP can, if they get together as a group and decide they are better off with Pence.
