    Someone didn't read the article. Perhaps if it had been written in Twitter form . . . "Given Obama's record on Russia, one operating theory is that his people needed a smokescreen to obscure just how wrong they were. They've blamed Trump. They've even blamed Mitch McConnell, in some twisted attempt to deflect blame to another branch of government. Joe Biden once claimed McConnell refused to sign a letter condemning the Russians during the 2016 election. But McConnell's office counters that the White House asked him to sign a letter urging state electors to accept federal help in securing local elections -- and he did. You can read it here. I guess if I had failed to stop Russia from marching into Crimea, making a mess in Syria, and hacking our democracy I'd be looking to blame someone else, too. But the Mueller report makes it clear that the Russian interference failure was Obama's alone. He was the commander-in-chief when all of this happened. In 2010, he and Eric Holder, his Attorney General, declined to prosecute Julian Assange, who then went on to help Russia hack the Democratic National Committee's emails in 2016. He arguably chose to prioritize his relationship with Putin vis-à-vis Iran over pushing back against Russian election interference that had been going on for at least two years."
  6. one for @yk9001 (and his favorite song/baseball custom): Yankees stopped playing Kate Smith's 'God Bless America' after discovering her racist songs The New York Yankees have played “God Bless America” during the seventh-inning stretch since 9/11, and for most of that time, the version fans would hear booming from the speakers was Kate Smith’s well-known rendition. But the Yankees have stopped playing her recording of the song. Why did the Yankees eliminate Smith from their seventh-inning routine? According to the New York Daily News, it’s due to several songs Smith recorded in the late 1930s that include shockingly racist language and imagery. From the Daily News: Smith was a famous singer before and during WWII who recorded the offensive jingle, “Pickaninny Heaven,” which she directed at “colored children” who should fantasize about an amazing place with “great big watermelons,” among other treats. She shot a video for that song that takes place in an orphanage for black children, and much of the imagery is startlingly racist. She also recorded, “That’s Why Darkies Were Born,” which included the lyrics, “Someone had to pick the cotton. … That’s why darkies were born"

    I couldn't find the Mueller Report thread. anyone heard from Rico today?
  8. Speaking to reporters after the game Sale said, “I just got to find a way to pitch better. This is flat out embarrassing, for my family, for my team, for our fans. This is as bad as it gets.” A season ago, Sale pitched to a 12-4 record with 237 strikeouts and 2.11 ERA. Now, Sale is 0-4 after Tuesday’s loss with an 8.50 ERA in 18 innings pitched. Sale, who typically pitches late into games, has only reached the sixth inning once this season.
