The CMT Nashville show (starring Rhiannon Giddens) says that this man was the first ever Grand old Opry star. cheers

It's funny, partisanship aside, because "The contributions of Frederick Douglass will become more and more." - isn't actually a sentence. Duh.

And, partisanship aside, the Press Secretary's job description doesn't say "speak gibberish when confronted with lame questions." So there's some mild amusement here, to those who aren't partisan hacks.

I'm pretty sure that is the job description.

And to be a partisan hack, wouldn't I have to have a party?

[relative to nothing, Spicer's reply was a complete sentence study ]

No, the job description is to speak boilerplate.

relative to language, Spicer's reply should have words after "more and more" to represent a coherent thought.

more and more what?

Mr. Spicer might well have been expressing contempt for the question with his awkward & truncated sentence, so your 100% nonpartisan, unbiased defence of him might work better on those grounds.

And to be technical, the contributions of Frederick Douglass can't become "more and more" because Douglass is dead. Or maybe Zombie Douglass?

(he might've said "God willing, the influence of Frederick Douglass will surely embiggify")

I think Spacer meant that the more Donald talks up Douglass the more people will have heard of him and will be edified by him.

Tonight the pinhed will celebrate Black History Month by celebrating St. Patrick's day at the Russian Embassy with Olga, and possibly engaging in "contacts with The Russians." Suspect

see, there you go again ... clearly making light of Dmitry Rybolovlev's dubious $100 million payment to Trump for a mold-infested pile of Floridian garbage.

I was just face-to-face with Ambassador Kislyak--will there be a special commission? Suspect

He didn' pay much attention to me because he was all over Olga. Mad

Multiple contacts.

maybe only if you deny being with him and then lobby to soften American support of Ukraine. Otherwise, you should be OK.

Brother Tavis says that if a white person uses the term "gubmint" - they're probably a casual racist.  Or at least a race horse enthusiast.

From what I've been told on the internet, everything I say is racist.

I think I got the word "gub'mint" from Huck Finn's father, whose racist views were far from casual.

Maybe autocorrect changed this:

"Oh, yes, this is a wonderful govment, wonderful. Why, looky here. There was a free nigger there from Ohio -- a mulatter, most as white as a white man. He had the whitest shirt on you ever see, too, and the shiniest hat; and there ain't a man in that town that's got as fine clothes as what he had; and he had a gold watch and chain, and a silver-headed cane -- the awfulest old gray-headed nabob in the State. And what do you think? They said he was a p'fessor in a college, and could talk all kinds of languages, and knowed everything. And that ain't the wust. They said he could vote when he was at home. Well, that let me out. Thinks I, what is the country a-coming to? It was 'lection day, and I was just about to go and vote myself if I warn't too drunk to get there; but when they told me there was a State in this country where they'd let that nigger vote, I drawed out. I says I'll never vote agin. Them's the very words I said; they all heard me; and the country may rot for all me -- I'll never vote agin as long as I live. And to see the cool way of that nigger -- why, he wouldn't a give me the road if I hadn't shoved him out o' the way. I says to the people, why ain't this nigger put up at auction and sold? -- that's what I want to know. And what do you reckon they said? Why, they said he couldn't be sold till he'd been in the State six months, and he hadn't been there that long yet. There, now -- that's a specimen. They call that a govment that can't sell a free nigger till he's been in the State six months. Here's a govment that calls itself a govment, and lets on to be a govment, and thinks it is a govment, and yet's got to set stock-still for six whole months before it can take a hold of a prowling, thieving, infernal, white-shirted free nigger, and -- "

I will attend the Rhiannon Giddens show on Tuesday.



The venue is certified as 100% pure and good:

"The Lincoln Theatre, built in 1922, was a cultural center of D.C., predating and influencing Harlem’s renaissance. Washington natives Duke Ellington and Pearl Bailey were joined by nationally acclaimed artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday, Nat King Cole, Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, and Sarah Vaughn who performed regularly on the storied stage."
