He might be referring to Tucker's applying the "C" word acoss the board because all the other words he says have been overused. LOL

It is illuminating, to be sure. Right along with wherever I heard it first, the English lesson in using the word fuck; in a sentence, as a verb, a noun, etc. Kinda of like spending time here. Always good.

I'm thankful for you, Jeff, for Ms. Spouse, and the community of readers and commenter that make up EIETMOO. Because of you all, i no longer feel like a little blue dot in a sea of red dipshittery.

AND....I’m thankful for your “bitching and moaning” and your family for keeping you sane! Have a wonderful peaceful day everyone!

And I'm thankful for all of that and you and the community you have created. I wish I could meet all of you for a coffee or a beer! (I've already had lunch with Sharon S.) This is certainly one of the highlights of my day. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from Philly and have a second piece of pie!

I know they will say fake news, but remember that they are super low information. Fox conveniently ignores any news that reflects poorly on gop. Keep the cell and Google handy for fact checking. And good luck!!!

Oh, I feel you....hang in there....put on a neutral face, eat and jet out of there. There is no reasoning with them. Right? I admire you for even showing up.

Jeff, that’s one of the most ‘straight’, thoughtful, sweet and sensitive postings which I’m sure your family, most of all appreciate. I’m sure that most of us can relate with those same things that you are thankful for. I’m sure I speak for most, if not all on here who are thankful for the levity that you have provided to help get us through these recent years. Without humor, we’d be totally FUCKED. <--(had to say it at least once). During the writer’s strike particularly, YOU came through for us, and you still do! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Pretty great, yes.

Old Molly Irvin’s quotes. Now there’s a very much missed political hot mama. I loved every word that woman wrote. I’m betting she and Carlin are floating around somewhere out in the ether wondering how this world could get so effed up because they warned us even then.

I miss Molly so much... she made Texas a lot easier to bear. In Austin, 3-4 blocks from the state capitol grounds, there's a restaurant called Scholz Beer Garten that has been in pretty much continuous operation since 1866. It's a big political hangout, esp when the lege is in session, and I've seen pictures and video and film of Molly hanging out there (in some shots, Ann Richards is close by, too). There's a dining room when you walk in, another room behind it, and a patio out back -- before the lege was so overwhelmingly red, one party would stake off the back room and the other got the patio. Good German food and a great beer menu.

For the past few years, I've worked for one of the state agencies (one that actually helps people) close to the Capitol, and now and then I go there for an office party or just lunch, if I have to drive into the office. Didn't discover it until after Molly was gone, but when I'm there, it's so easy to imagine her across the room with drink in hand, laughing her ass off...

I think you are so right! Especially in Texas. I lived in Texas in the 60s, Houston, it was a fantastic place to be then. Now I don't even want to drive through the state headed anywhere else.

Isn’t it amazing that it’s gone from a state that elects a governor like Ann Richard’s to one like it is now. Unbelievable and sad.

What a great list of people to be grateful for...thanks for posting it! I miss Molly Ivins!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your adoring family but gwt your ass back in the saddle come Monday, cuz you know trump doesn't take a day off, though he did play golf 300+ days during his occupation of the WH. Carry on and thank you for all you do.

I love “the occupation of the WH.” Perfect description of the orange Nazi’s time in office ( when the POS. was not on the golf course )……happy Thanksgiving!
