    I’ll give anything Emerald Fennell is involved in a shot. Also, “salt burn”
    sounds like something the tabloids are suffering from because they are so salty and sore about all things Sussex. Sounds like they need to apply some balm and sit quietly in a dark cellar for a few months to recover.

    Any other job he wouldn’t have been fit for duty, but politics is fine?

  3. Debbie says:

    Of course, he was cleared for work by a doctor. Dr. Bombay, I assume. My God, at this point, even old Mr. Burns seems more spry and energetic than Mitch McConnell.

    • GoldenMom says:

      Thanks for Dr Bombay….that cracked me up. Sadly, doc who oked this probably doesn’t even have Bombay’s qualifications.

      • Debbie says:

        I felt a bit silly using two TV references in a row, but this situation is just so absurd and alarming to think that this is the country’s Senate Minority Leader, and that major legislation has to have this guy’s input, that it helps me to treat it as the farce it is on the surface.

    • Another Anna says:

      Second opinion provided by Dr. Spaceman. Remember, science is whatever we want it to be.

  4. Wannabefarmer says:

    Must have been the same doctor who said trump with the healthiest president EVER, in HIStory.

  5. Erin says:

    Is it really that he’s unmarried or is it something else because they are perfectly fine with supporting Lindsey Graham decade after decade.

    • ML says:

      Oh Erin, I hate that I know this, but tge Rs didn’t support Graham for president either. (They supported Trump, and shortly afterwards Graham weirdly supported Trump after having hated him, as well.) Senate bachelor = okay. President as an R? Nope.

  6. DeeSea says:

    Anyone else picturing this doctor as Dr. Nick Riviera? “Hi, everybody!”

    Thanks to all of the CB writers, and wishing you a relaxing (and safe!) Labor Day weekend off.
    (I don’t know how we’ll get by without new posts until TUESDAY though! Ohhh…the withdrawal pangs are starting! lol. Going to have to “ration” reading all today and leave at least one or two for the next few days 😉 )

    Have a safe holiday weekend everyone! ❤️

    Both chambers have a dr. At least that’s how it works here in our statehouse & I’d assume Congress is the same, but that’s not a ‘cleared for work’ gig it’s more like for emergencies as triage. I’m sure his personal handpicked dr that he hired found a way to clear him —

    RIP to the late Diana, Princess of Wales on 8/31

    Love the People’s Fund of Maui, great idea! One tiny, tiny complaint: Dwayne should not have had his hand on Oprah’s shoulder in that video. Just no. Hands to yourself in the workplace, Dwayne!

  11. Ann h says:

    Pretty soon they’ll be dragging him around and propping him up like Weekend at Bernies.

  12. WhereIsTheMountainLion says:

    Happy Labor Day, y’all!

  13. Bettyrose says:

    RIP Jimmy Buffet! 😢 I’m not a Parrothead exactly but I’ve seen him live a few times and there were some dark years that his music really helped me.

    McConnell needs to retire. I wonder if he’s having mini strokes? Then the woman tries to act like it was an hearing issue, what BS. Time for him to go!
