In other news, President Obama has ordered intelligence agencies to produce a comprehensive report on possible election hacking by Russia. The report is due before Obama leaves office.

Meanwhile, Trump's transition team is reportedly fishing for information on energy department employees who've done work to fight climate change. They want to purge dissenters.

Finally, Trump is reportedly receive just one intelligence briefing per week now. An "Al Qaeda determined to strike the U.S." moment is coming at some point. Trump will be too busy with the Celebrity Apprentice.

I'm having one of those days where I feel like everything I write is shit, so I'm signing off a little early.

No snyth tonight. I'm subjecting you to Lady Gaga instead.

Gaga's new album is, in my opinion, some of the best material she's ever produced. There's shades of Stevie Nicks, classic rock, and even country throughout it.

Have a good weekend.

    An “Al Qaeda determined to strike the U.S.” moment is coming at some point.

    Of course. To be followed by an actual strike. Which is exactly what the Republicans are counting on.

    “Did you see how Bush’s ratings skyrocketed following 9/11? Do you remember the shit he was able to get away with following the attack? An invasion! An legitimizing of torture! He got to squash any dissenters as “unpatriotic” and convincing people they could only exercise their 1st Amendment rights in “Free Speech Zones” that were kept out of site! We have GOT to get ourselves some of that!” they’re all thinking.

    Hadn’t paid much attention to Lady Gaga for a while. She does have a Bowie-esque ability not to do the same thing twice, doesn’t she?

      I’m not entirely sure what you mean but her latest album is radically different from her previous two albums. She has a lot of range. Not many people can easily switch between different styles of music as well as she can.

        That’s pretty much the point I was trying to make.
