Quotes of the Day: Charles Pierce and Bob Corker

Yes, it's a duet. The QOTD thing was getting a little long in the tooth and needed some spice.

 This brilliant bit of booking gave us this indelible moment in television history.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Is it realistic to expect Mexico to pay for that wall?

CORKER: Well, again, I don't want to get into a debate about the nuances of that. I mean it's a statement that he has made. I thought this interview was going to be more about the foreign policy arena. I think he has a tremendous opportunity there.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, our relations with Mexico is foreign policy.


Nothing gets by a gen-yoo-wine Yewnited States Senator, I'll tell you that.

Oh yes, the Clinton Guy Shocked by Blowjobs provided background vocals. 

I suppose you could make a case that our side of the wall is domestic policy.

OTOH, Senator Corker does recognize there may be some tweaking required of the Trump campaign.

Donald Trump has two to three weeks to fix his campaign or lose so much Republican support that it would doom his run for the presidency, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker told Yahoo News on Tuesday.

“He’s obviously stepped in it. He’s made statements that are inappropriate,” Corker, a Republican from Tennessee, said in a telephone interview. 

That's statements about Judge Curiel. I realize some clarification may be required.

Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.
Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It's not your style;
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
Ya' decide to smile!
Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin;
Wipe off that "full of doubt" look,
Slap on a happy grin!
And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!
Put on a happy face
Put on a happy face
And if you're feeling cross and bickerish
Don't sit and whine
Think of banana splits and licorice
And you'll feel fine
I knew a girl so gloomy
She'd never laugh or sing
She wouldn't listen to me
Now she's a mean old thing
So spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face
So, put on a happy face


  1. Trump is a one-man wrecking ball whose first target is his own prodigious arse. Go for it, Donnie!

  2. Isn't that the saddest face you've ever seen? He looks like a human emoji.
