Re: “Welcome, Coach Muss

Razorbacks lost several winnable games this year because they came out flat, unready to play hard. At minimum, Musselman seems unlikely to let that happen.

Re: “Northam, Virginia and the benefit of the doubt

Virginia's Lt. Governor has called for an investigation of allegations against him. Looks like he may get one.

Re: “Herd shifts

No, Thiessen's article never appeared in the NYT. He's a syndicated conservative columnist for the Washington Post.

It's an illogical appeal to authority anyway.

Dating to November 2017, the column's long ago been overtaken by facts. So has the May 2017 Slate article the Investigator cites. No serious person any longer questions the massively-documented impact of Russian cyber-crime on the 2016 presidential election.

Trump's futile attempts to drag the DNC into it were never anything but a cynical distraction. They were the victims, not the perps.

The Investigator has a lot of catching up to do.

In any event, Thiessen's classic November 2017 "whataboutism" has long since been overtaken by facts. So has the Slate article, which dates to May 2017. No serious person now doubts that Russian cyber-crimes played a huge role in the 2016 election. Trump's efforts to cast suspicion on the DNC have failed.

The Investigator has a lot of catching up to do.

Re: “No leash

Why would anybody trim a cat's claws? That would interfere with their ability to defend themselves, climb trees and shred furniture.

Re: “Herd shifts

Uh-oh, the Investigator's playing off the bottom of the deck.

That quote is from a 2017 column by right-winger Mark Thiessen, not the NYT. A column written before Robert Mueller's detailed indictment of fifteen Russian agents for the DNC hack. An indictment backed by copious evidence.

It seems Mueller's investigators didn't need to take physical possession of DNC servers either.

In short, it's classic "whataboutism." A made-up diversion.

Many people criticized both Clintons for huge speaking fees. But here's the deal. They weren't secret, and they weren't illegal. Nor were any Clinton Foundation donations. All public, all accounted for.

Any company suspecting a data hack would hire a private security firm to determine what happened. Only then would they notify the Feds.

Re: “Herd shifts

Tra-la, indeed. And no answer to the question.

Why would the DNC alter evidence of Russian hacking? Evidence it already had, and turned over.

As I say, this is one of Trump's favorite examples of "whataboutism."

I think we're done here.
