If you mean the assassination, I agree. But Johnson recognized in JFK a rich kid with a gangster dad, who, as a politician, was delighted by special forces and extrajudicial assassinations as tools of statecraft. I'm talking 1960-62.

Bob Woodward writes fiction, and it's sad to see adults taking any of this seriously. Not "Sad!" sneering, just honest despair.

Donald Trump's reflexive, ass-saving denials are the actions of an animal.

Bob Woodward's extensive, documented history of bullshitting in his own books is a fact.

Is that really the best way to summarize the situation right now? He's got a tape of his interaction with Trump, the NYT ran it earlier this week. (A smart move, that.)

Woodward says he has more tapes to back everything but that really remains to be seen, doesn't it? Furthermore, his Schrodinger Tape Collection doesn't do much to amend or ameliorate his decades-long history of bullshit artistry, does it?

"Bob Woodward has tapes!" How do we know that? "Bob Woodward told us!"

Weak tea.

They both do! And that, perhaps, may be why Woodward was the perfect asset to unleash on Trump.

Sorry, I remember shit from five minutes ago, also from 30 years ago (publication of Veil). Woodward has been humping his Watergate coup and writing bad novels for more than 40.

More to the point here:

As evil as Woodward is, I can't believe, even in 2018, that he has no editors. Or that his editors are so post-literate that they can't get apostrophes right. (Hint: An apostrophe is not meant to signify, "Watch out everyone, here comes an s!")

Note: I don't give a flying fuck if this is an otherwise faithful transcription by a type-monkey who copied what was in the book and only got the apostrophes wrong.

As long as those are wrong, as long as this is a fucking meme graphic, the text is suspect. It is to be treated as null and void. You may not get it, but I guarantee you Woodward and his editors get it. They will be treating apostrophe mistakes in a printed monograph as cardinal sins, as in: eternity in hell is the punishment! I guarantee you this would bother them more than almost any other mistake you could accuse them of.

In short, post no more meme graphics. Post only confirmed text from the book. Absolutely nothing counts without correct page numbers in proper citations. (Preferably should conform to Chicago or MLA form, but that's surely too much to ask of you.)

Otherwise, begone with the bullshit!

Anyway, sorry.

But It Is Very Funny

and because of this being made public ....well

Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over.

this is not a typo and much more important

Brett Kavanaugh Refers To Birth Control As ‘Abortion-Inducing Drugs’ At Confirmation Hearing


this is true and I can't wait for the book to go on sale

On Trump, according to his lawyer John Dowd:

Dowd then explained to Mueller and Quarles why he was trying to keep the president from testifying: “I’m not going to sit there and let him look like an idiot. And you publish that transcript, because everything leaks in Washington, and the guys overseas are going to say, ‘I told you he was an idiot. I told you he was a goddamn dumbbell. What are we dealing with this idiot for?’ ”
On Trump's disregard for Jeff Sessions:

A near-constant subject of withering presidential attacks was Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump told Porter that Sessions was a “traitor” for recusing himself from overseeing the Russia investigation, Woodward writes. Mocking Sessions’s accent, Trump added, “This guy is mentally retarded. He’s this dumb Southerner. … He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.”
[Washington Post]

On aides stealing papers from Trump's desk so he couldn't sign them:

The letter would have withdrawn the US from a critical trade agreement with South Korea. Trump's aides feared the fallout could jeopardize a top-secret national security program: the ability to detect a North Korean missile launch within just seven seconds.Woodward reports Cohn was "appalled" that Trump might sign the letter. "I stole it off his desk," Cohn told an associate. "I wouldn't let him see it. He's never going to see that document. Got to protect the country."Cohn was not alone. Former staff secretary Rob Porter worked with Cohn and used the same tactic on multiple occasions, Woodward writes. In addition to literally stealing or hiding documents from Trump's desk, they sought to stall and delay decisions or distract Trump from orders they thought would endanger national security.
On Trump not testifying in the Mueller investigation:

Despite Dowd's efforts, Trump continued to insist he could testify. "I think the President of the United States cannot be seen taking the fifth," Trump said. Dowd's argument was stark: "There's no way you can get through these. ... Don't testify. It's either that or an orange jump suit."

That's alright ol pal, it got me inspired to do a riff about the sorry state of the publishing industry. I had fun typing that post. So it worked out fine for me
Both his words and manner of speech seemed at first totally unfamiliar to me, and yet somehow they stirred memories - as an actor might be stirred by the forgotten lines of some role he had played far away and long ago.

Don't apologize Jerky, who doesn't like a good ghost story--true or not? Besides, the WaPo/Woodward enterprise itself probably planted it to boost pre-publication sales.

To quote another presidential ghost stalking him, "......the only thing you have to fear is Fear itself.........."
