Déjà vu!

Yeah, that Bob Hope was a corker. Everything was better back then:

Ah, MPs! Good to see the nasty and the self-important taken down a peg or two (or preferably sacked). But the latest "sexual harassment" shenanigans are a bit like when the media discovered MPs often fiddled expenses, and puts me in mind of Macaulay: "We know no spectacle so ridiculous as the British public in one of its periodical fits of morality."

Bloody hell, Bob, you could have warned me about that lady's voice, I was expecting some vintage Bob Hope.

Macaulay was spot on, 'W', and I must confess that some of those moaning 'wimmin' are getting on my nerves!

Eh ... David?

Being as this is Sunday Rumble Day, how is it you could've missed this headline?

JK, at least he isn't totally deranged and was picking his own nose whilst choking his chicken.

David, I couldn't think of a good joke about Hope's prop golf club. Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton were second choice. Sorry about the voice. It's like Monty Python cheating by using an actual, screeching woman. Btw, are you treating your own son no better than a common troll now?

"How about the one about the Trump Russia file being sponsored and created on behalf of a right wing think tank during the Republican primary and being paid for by one of the biggest Republican donors."

That sentence needs some serious unpacking.

"Lawyers for the conservative publication Washington Free Beacon informed the House Intelligence Committee Friday that the organization was the original funder for the anti-Trump opposition research project with Fusion GPS.

"The Free Beacon funded the project from the fall of 2015 through the spring of 2016, whereupon it withdrew funding and the project was picked up by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign."

Glenn R. Rich (at the time a Rubio supporter) didn't have spit to do with the notorious "Russia File" - Mr. Steele only being engaged after the DNC paid the ten million bucks to hire the said Mr. Steele.

But yep - the Washington Free Beacon "is cooperating" - under subpoena, which, having the full weight of the FBI on its ass I'd think, would be a reasonably good idea.

As if they had any other viable option. So there's that.

And there's that too. So yep Pompous, it is getting better.

Popcorn needing refreshment?

"A letter sent on Tuesday to Fusion’s lawyers by Perkins Coie, a law firm which represented both the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s campaign, confirmed that Perkins Coie had hired Fusion GPS in April 2016 to conduct election related research. A source familiar with the matter said Fusion GPS did not hire Steele until late May 2016."

Just so there'll be less conflating, another reporting source.
