James Comer has been big on promises, short on delivery. MAGA is feeling let down.

So, Curt, can you still say that there's "NO EVIDENCE" that Joe was involved in the Crime Family?

In Hate’s title post, Female staffers at CNN threaten to walk if Don Lemon not fired Hate said if he [Lemon] had been a conservative, “he'd'a been gone within 24 hours of his ageist and sexist comment.” 

I agreed with 😀 Smiley when he responded with “we should ALL condemn him [Lemon] and remove him from our (progressive) ranks for acting and talking like a Republican” !!!

OK! I did some searching and I now have a better understanding of what this guy Lemon said in context, and it wasn’t as bad as I had been led to believe.

Apparently he was getting back at presidential candidate Nikki Haley for, in her presidential campaign announcement, calling for “mandatory mental competency tests for politicians over 75 years old." LoL !!!

Lemon said the "talk about age" makes him uncomfortable and said her comments were the "wrong road" to go down.

"She [Haley] says people, politicians are not in their prime," "Nikki Haley is not in her prime, sorry. A woman is considered to be in her prime in her 20s, 30s and maybe her 40s."

Of course, determining when a woman is in her prime is subjective, it’s like saying a chocolate eclair tastes better than a Ritz cracker. So I’m sure that Hate would have to say that what Lemon said was “true”, according to Hate's own beliefs about subjectivity being true and all. Of course, “I” disagree with Lemon. I think women over 40 are the best !!!

Anyway, being the gentleman that he apparently is, Lemon apologized,

 ”The reference I made to a woman’s “prime” this morning was *inartful* and irrelevant, as colleagues and loved ones have pointed out, and I regret it. A woman’s age doesn't define her either personally or professionally. I have countless women in my life who prove that every day.”

* Even though I don't know what inartful means, I accept Lemons apology.

    The actress Barbara Bosson's obituary appeared in the Times today. She also had made a somewhat impolitical comment about when women are in the "prime".

    Though she continued to find work in the 12 years between leaving “Hill Street Blues” and her retirement in 1997, she found it increasingly frustrating, with good roles for women her age few and far between.

    “There’s this wonderful tradition in Hollywood where men as old as 60 or 70 play opposite women of 20,” she told The Washington Post. “The only time you’ll see an older woman with a younger man is if she’s so knock-them-down-dead gorgeous that anybody would go for her.”


    As for Nikki Haley, her comment about mental exams for senior citizens is ageist in the extreme. Besides implying that Biden and Trump should be tested, Haley also said the Bernie Sanders should be examined for mental fitness--that's ageist. Why isn't she advocating mental exams for ALL candidates regardless of age. Of course, she didn't figure out or suggest who would administer these exams. That doesn't say much for her intelligence or her ability to look a step ahead.

    I agree with your question of who should administer and interpret the exams.

    I hope Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, or any from the currant crop of new Republicans would be on the board of examiners (or interpreters of the results) LoL!!!

    I just wanna go on record.

    I think that if there's justice, Lemon'd be humiliated and canned. Otoh, I'm a regular viewer of The Five. Reporting on Donnie and his progress SwampMedia moronisms is like shooting fish in a barrel for Jesse and Greg. More fun than a barrel of, uh, monkeys.
