“Silver Bells” is a classic Christmas song, composed by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.
“Silver Bells” was first performed by Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell in the motion picture The Lemon Drop Kid, filmed in July–August 1950 and released in March 1951. The first recorded version was by Bing Crosby and Carol Richards, released by Decca Records in October 1950. After the Crosby and Richards recording became popular, Hope and Maxwell were called back in late 1950 to refilm a more elaborate production of the song.
“Silver Bells” started out as the questionable “Tinkle Bells.” Said Evans, “We never thought that tinkle had a double meaning until Jay went home and his [first] wife said, ‘Are you out of your mind? Do you know what the word tinkle is?'” The word is child’s slang for urination.
Flynn sang like a canary.
Bobby Three Sticks recommended ZERO jail time for Flynn.

Black Women Decided The 2016 Democratic Nominee. They’ll Have An Even Bigger Say In 2020.
Posted on December 3, 2018, at 11:23 a.m. ET
The biggest missed political opportunity in recent memory is probably Deval Patrick’s decision, after losing quite a bit of sleep, not to run for president in 2016.
At the time, the path seemed fairly clear: The former Massachusetts governor could run as Barack Obama had, on unifying optimism, progressive politics, and a strong connection to the black voters who make up a pillar of the primary electorate.
Hillary Clinton’s team was, Darren Sands reported, quietly afraid of him. And the results of that election left Patrick intensely frustrated.
One reason for that is obvious: Clinton was a far weaker candidate than the media and Democratic establishment thought.
The other possible reason just as obvious, but less discussed: Patrick could have won the primary. The Democratic primaries, as they are currently built, favor a black candidate. The winning formula in recent years has been to build a coalition from older black voters plus another group: white progressives for Obama; white moderates for Clinton. And the Democratic electorates in Deep South states, which vote early in the primary process, are dominated by black voters. That was where Clinton won in 2016, despite no particular attention to the region, and where Bernie Sanders lost it.
“When Southern black voters united behind a Democratic candidate, the South becomes a formidable firewall that is hard to overcome for any candidate who performs poorly among this group, which comprises the base of the Democratic coalition,” wrote Seth McKee, a political scientist at Texas Tech, in a compelling new study of the 2016 election in the South titled The Future Ain’t What It Used to Be.
I don’t want to hear this ISH. When you drive your car into people, you know someone is going to die. Fugg him.
The families of the murdered victims he ran into are SOBBING, you SOB!
And Heather Heyer’s relatives will never see her marry, have kids, attend birthday parties, Thanksgiving, and Christmas family dinners again. Fields cried because he got caught.
Yeah, these murderers who did not think through the consequences of their actions tend to think that crying about it afterwards shows real remorse and should get them off.

The NC GOP is trying to rush through a law that would REQUIRE every county elections board in NC to be chaired by a Republican in election years. These guys just can’t stop trying to rig elections.
Just gone drop this, right here:

Well, that’s a side of Donna Brazile I haven’t seen. But I do like her hair.
I stayed up late wrapping gifts. Talk about tired. The worse thing is let them pile up. It will wear you out!
Free yourself, SG2! LOL
Another devastated family.
That’s so sad. I wonder how long Sully was with GHWB.
Sully went to work with Bush this summer after former first lady Barbara Bush passed away
Oh, so he’s relatively new. It would be much worse if he were a longtime companion. But he does seem really sad. I hope they find a good job for him at Walter Reed.
Trump’s emoluments headache is poised to get a whole lot worse

The U.S. Constitution includes a once-obscure provision known as the “Emoluments Clause.” As regular readers know, the law is pretty straightforward: U.S. officials are prohibited from receiving payments from foreign governments. Traditionally, this hasn’t been much of a problem for sitting American presidents – but with Donald Trump things are a little different.
After all, this president has refused to divest from his private-sector enterprises, which means he continues to personally profit from businesses that receive payments from foreign governments.
The problem isn’t theoretical: Saudi Arabia, for example, spent roughly $270,000 at Trump’s Washington hotel during one of the country’s lobbying campaigns last year. Some of that money directly benefited the president.
This legally dubious dynamic has been the target of multiple lawsuits, one of which is poised to become even more interesting. The Associated Press reported late yesterday:
ASSES need to be JAILED for these SHENANIGANS!
Talk about brazen mofos in North Carolina. They targeted elderly Black people and STOLE their vote in broad daylight. Thieving sobs!
