I did not even know this show was back on.

Clinton appeared in the Sept. 27 premiere of the Candice Bergen-led sitcom — but not as herself. Instead, she was “Hilary,” a woman who said she is often mistaken for the former presidential candidate but actually spells her name with only one “L.” She arrived at Murphy’s new cable news show, “Murphy in the Morning,” to interview for the “secretarial position.”

“Your reputation proceeds you, but I want you to know I’m not afraid of hard work, I’m qualified, and I’m ready on day one,” Clinton said to Murphy at the start of her interview.

Murphy went on to ask if she had any secretarial experience (“For four years I was the secretary … of a very large organization,” she replied) and if she had experience with technology and teamwork.

“I do have some experience with emails,” she said. And on the topic of how many people it takes to run a production, she relied on another one of her campaign mottos: “Everyone works together, it takes a village.”

In the end, though, Murphy said although she was “very impressive,” she was “maybe a little over-qualified” and needed some time to think about the hire. Clinton left Murphy with a business card that said her email address was “Hilary at you could have had me dot com.”

Apparently, this is one of two TV appearance that Hillary has planned, The next one will be on “Madam Secretary” another show that I know nothing about. 

I thought that this bit was a little too carefully scripted to get any of Hillary’s true personality, I thought SNL did a better job of that, but it is nice to see her once in awhile and then imagine what might have been.

    That was great! Oh, how I wish that the Russians hadn’t put Don the Con in the job she was so perfectly suited for!

    English credits Sarah Palin for inspiring her initial thoughts about bringing “Murphy Brown” back in 2012.

      Interesting that she didn’t say why. I certainly have my own views as to why, and none are complimentary to Queen Heifer.

    I have been watching the reruns of the old Murphy Brown show and they are great, hope this show is as good. I am not sure if it has the same writers.

    I think the first show didn’t have as many viewers as the stupid roseanne show because everyone was worn out after the brett circus.

    OT-” including Bannon in a “festival of ideas” can be seen as tacit validation of his agenda, Remnick is right—there is merit to interviewing Bannon, provided it’s a proper journalistic interrogation that seeks to expose his disturbing views and not a ceding of the floor, allowing the man who’s attempting to hijack Europe for the far-right to proselytize unchecked.

    Bannon was the guest on Friday night’s Real Time, where he sat down with host Bill Maher and attempted to give his usual “populist” spiel.

    Calling him “one of the most influential [people] around,” Maher right off the bat thanked Bannon for appearing on the program, saying it
    “says volumes why the Republicans are in power and we have none… Hillary Clinton never came here.” He added, “Maybe she’d be here if she were more confident.”

    Maher then asked Bannon about being disinvited from The New Yorker Festival, and after the 64-year-old said that he was more than willing to chop it up at “the toughest places,” the comedian agreed, repeating “that’s why the Republicans are in power.”

    The HBO host attempted to get Bannon to admit that he homes in on “empty vessels” like Sarah Palin and Donald Trump—people who can be easily manipulated, and whose heads he can stuff with his own ideas, but Bannon defended Trump, characterizing him as “incredibly smart.”

    O/T

    …..The FBI moved immediately given the short time frame. By Friday night, agents had sought to schedule an interview with one of two other women who, after Blasey Ford went public, made accusations of their own about alleged assaults dating to Kavanaugh’s days in high school and at Yale University, according to two sources with knowledge of the investigation who asked to remain unidentified given the sensitivity of the matter.

    FBI investigators contacted the attorneys for the woman and asked to interview her “as early as tonight,” according to one of the sources. Her attorneys countered with a later time, but the interview could occur this weekend, the sources said…….

    This article is worth reading !!!!!
    =============================================

    David Brock on NBC:

    “I used to know Brett Kavanaugh pretty well. And, when I think of Brett now, in the midst of his hearings for a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court, all I can think of is the old “Aesop’s Fables” adage: “A man is known by the company he keeps.” And that’s why I want to tell any senator who cares about our democracy: Vote no. Twenty years ago, when I was a conservative movement stalwart, I got to know Brett Kavanaugh both professionally and personally. Brett actually makes a cameo appearance in my memoir of my time in the GOP, “Blinded By The Right.” I describe him at a party full of zealous young conservatives gathered to watch President Bill Clinton’s 1998 State of the Union address — just weeks after the story of his affair with a White House intern had broken. When the TV camera panned to Hillary Clinton, I saw Brett — at the time a key lieutenant of Ken Starr, the independent counsel investigating various Clinton scandals — mouth the word “bitch.”…………

      “Brett and I were part of a close circle of cold, cynical and ambitious hard-right operatives being groomed by GOP elders for much bigger roles in politics, government and media. And it’s those controversial associations that should give members of the Senate and the American public serious pause.
      Call it Kavanaugh’s cabal: There was his colleague on the Starr investigation, Alex Azar, now the Secretary of Health and Human Services. Mark Paoletta is now chief counsel to Vice President Mike Pence; House anti-Clinton gumshoe Barbara Comstock is now a Republican member of Congress. Future Fox News personalities Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson were there with Ann Coulter, now a best-selling author, and internet provocateur Matt Drudge. Another compatriot was George Conway (now Kellyanne’s husband), who led a secretive group of right-wing lawyers — we called them “the elves” — who worked behind the scenes directing the litigation team of Paula Jones-the cabal’s godfather was Ted Olson, the then-future solicitor general for George W. Bush and now a sainted figure of the GOP establishment”

        Is this also from the David Brock piece quoted above? Very interesting, whatever the source. Kavanaugh came off as an entitled rich little boy. Not yet adult. He never will be. He’s used to getting his way. I hope he doesn’t this time. He needs serious, extensive therapy before he’s ever allowed in the company of women again.

          Yes, it is from the article, it also mentions how he was the leaker in chief and it his rant about the clintons in his opening statement makes more sense
          ======================================================

          “Both Ted and Brett had what one could only be called an unhealthy obsession with the Clintons — especially Hillary. While Ted was pushing through the Arkansas Project conspiracy theories claiming that Clinton White House lawyer and Hillary friend Vincent Foster was murdered (he committed suicide), Brett was costing taxpayers millions by peddling the same garbage at Starr’s office
          .
          A detailed analysis of Kavanaugh’s own notes from the Starr Investigation reveals he was cherry-picking random bits of information from the Starr investigation — as well as the multiple previous investigations — attempting vainly to legitimize wild right-wing conspiracies. For years he chased down each one of them without regard to the emotional cost to Foster’s family and friends, or even common decency
          .
          Kavanaugh was not a dispassionate finder of fact but rather an engineer of a political smear campaign. And after decades of that, he expects people to believe he’s changed his stripes.”

      Also from article, this is a man who has known him for years !!! Brett is going to be a disaster
      =====================================================

      “Like millions of Americans this week, I tuned into Kavanaugh’s hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee with great interest. In his opening statement and subsequent testimony, Kavanaugh presented himself as a “neutral and impartial arbiter” of the law. Judges, he said, were not players but akin to umpires — objectively calling balls and strikes. Again and again, he stressed his “independence” from partisan political influences.

      But I don’t need to see any documents to tell you who Kavanaugh is — because I’ve known him for years. And I’ll leave it to all the lawyers to parse Kavanaugh’s views on everything from privacy rights to gun rights.

      But I can promise you that any pretense of simply being a fair arbiter of the constitutionality of any policy regardless of politics is simply a pretense. He made up his mind nearly a generation ago — and, if he’s confirmed, he’ll have nearly two generations to impose it upon the rest of us.”

      Well, the wedding is off to a fine start! Wonder if he’s even invited.

    Excerpt FB>
    “Yesterday a courageous fellow citizen stood up and told her story. Unlike with Anita Hill, at least half of the senators on the panel treated her with respect. That is progress. Unlike in the past, many of those senators were accomplished women who you could imagine someday being president. That is progress. A culture that in the not-so-distant past had no notion of “date rape” now does. And that is progress. Millions of men as well as women will not stand for it. And that is progress. Across the country a great spirit of righteous political fury is brewing, and it is propelling more women to positions of leadership. And that is progress.”
