I will be changing my wifi password to “IMPEACH45” this Thursday so that my MAGA family members have to put that in their devices to have some of my delicious WiFi.

My MAGA family wasn’t invited this year and I’m going to sit and relax in my PJs happy to not have to listen to the BS coming out of their mouths pic.twitter.com/tvsBTmb323

It's hard to celebrate Thanksgiving in the original way anymore, so I'm going to settle for giving my Uber driver smallpox and stealing his car.

And a little holiday uplift, for those of us who grew up believing it wasn’t a real celebration till the shouting started…
Martin O’Malley just drove Ken Cuccinelli out of the Dubliner in DC w/ a passion-laced and shame-invoking tirade on behalf of immigrant refugee children!!!

Bingo! Only one of them is living the motto “Man For Others.”
Hint: It’s not Ken.

Cuccinelli really has worked hard to deracinate himself — the Italian-American families *I* grew up with would’ve disowned a member who walked away from a fight with one mouthy mick. And probably cemented the disinheritance with a beating about the head & shoulders from the alpha nonna present.
… The two political polar opposites crossed paths Wednesday night at the Dubliner, a Capitol Hill Irish pub popular on Thanksgiving Eve with Gonzaga High School graduates. Both men attended the school, graduating five years apart in the 1980s…
Cuccinelli did not immediately respond to a requests for comment. O’Malley declined a request for a phone interview, but gave his version of events via text. He disputed Arnold’s account on one point: He said he wasn’t shouting, but raised his voice “just to be heard” in the pub.
O’Malley, a former Baltimore mayor who was Maryland governor from 2006 to 2014 and unsuccessfully sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, said he was at the Dubliner with members of his Gonzaga class…
“We all let him know how we felt about him putting refugee immigrant kids in cages – certainly not what we were taught by the Jesuits at Gonzaga,” O’Malley texted.
In another text, he called Cuccinelli “the son of immigrant grandparents who cages children for a fascist president.”
“We all let him know how we felt about him putting refugee immigrant kids in cages – certainly not what we were taught by the Jesuits at Gonzaga,” O’Malley texted…
(Suspect the Gonzaga Jesuits wouldn’t have approved, either. Backing away from an argument is *not* a Jesuit practice.)
