Wow! The hearing this mor
ning was ridiculous. Jim Jordan is how he’s been for a while. He just focuses on the irrelevant parts of events, and he won’t say that the election wasn’t rigged.
I pulled out 47D Expeditions by knights: QUESTS because I play Avalon with friends most Tuesday nights, and I’m writing this as we’re playing right now. If they read this post, they’ll know why I’ve been a little distracted.
Today’s long clues are clearly in reference to getting Trump out of the Oval.
18A Hard deposit in a bladder: KIDNEYSTONE.
29A Legislation often resulting from compromise: BIPARTISANBILL. Come on, Mitch McConnell, let’s get an early trial going after impeachment breezes through the House.
46A N.F.L. signal caller: PROQUARTERBACK.
61A Jiffy: BRIEFMOMENT.
37A Adage on the impermanence of suffering … or a hint to 18-, 29-, 46- and 61-Across: THISTOOSHALLPASS.
They all pass stuff, but we need these articles of impeachment to go through and for us to make Mike Pence. Also NYT just reported that the Trump administration executed Lisa Montgomery while Trump happily pardoned all kinds of criminals. What a time to be alive!
Finished this one in 11:30.
Gotta start paying attention to Avalon again.
