  1. Good luck with that. He'll be impeached in the House, with all Republicans and a handful of Democrats voting against, but the chance of a supermajority in the Senate is about the same as aliens blowing up the White House on election day. He, Fox News and Vlad on Facebook et al will use the failure to convict to fire up his base and off we all go merrily into the 2020 vote. I fear the Dems will pick Warren, or someone similarly appealing to the echo chamber social media bubbles, ignoring that in the vastly important battleground purple states a lefty Dem is about as welcome as the tertiary syphilis working its way through Trump's tiny brain. Trump will get his due only when he's voted out. And for that the Dems need to battle not just Trump himself on election day, but their own inability to do the sensible thing, voter suppression, gerrymandering, election interference, and the fetid cesspit of lies and propaganda propagated by the Trump campaign and related malignant cultists and greedy, cynical opportunists. I predict four more years of an unfettered Trump, unless his health takes him out first, and then we'll have Pence. In which case those with a supernatural inclination might get some joy from imagining Trump burning on the everlasting bonfire, or fertilizing daffodils, for the rest of us.
  2. A Warning by Anonymous. Nothing new about the fetid malignant narcissist, with added Republican finger-wagging. Read Fear: Trump in the White House by Bob Woodward instead for a similar perspective (though there's a lot of Bannon), or Russian Roulette by David Corn and Michael Isikoff if you want the Russia story (and Collusion by Luke Harding). Just started Crime in Progress: The Secret History of the Trump-Russia Investigation by Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch. Looking forward to seeing who gets the definitive Ukraine account. Also Hall of Mirrors by Christopher Fowler, and The Black Tower by PD James.
  3. A little bit of politics... Additionally:
  4. Whatever gets you through these trying times.
  5. The ability to binge watch multiple episodes from favourite series in one sitting whenever you want, free of horribly intrusive adverts and the editing done to those episodes to accommodate those adverts. Poirot, Marple, Morse, Endeavour, Midsomer Murders, Frost, Lewis... Great if you're a fan of British crime drama.
  6. Kate McKinnon is magnificent:
  7. Ahhhh ahhhh... Your periodic reminder:
  8. It took them a while to forgive this video:
  9. Pretty Little Liars was always fantastically preposterous, but going full-on twin mode (and with a dodgy British accent) for the finale was just lazy. Can't think of a show that's had a really satisfying ending. Most formerly excellent ones have ended with a whimper, a few seasons too late. Possibly Buffy.
