Bad takes and fake news. Agitprop of the most superficial kind.

In defense of the character, I will say that including him on the show turns it into a quasi-spinoff of The Wire thus linking the two most compelling cable dramas of my lifetime. Still would have preferred taking the O’Malley route, but it works.

The badly underwritten Rosenstein character is one of this series’ biggest weak points.

But of course as Trump knows — viz. Arpaio and Libby — there’s no legal requirement to go through the Office of the Pardon Attorney, the President can pardon whoever he wants. Pardoning Johnson would be a concrete demonstration of how norm-violating can be actually good.

My understanding is that Obama didn’t want to fill the DOJ Office of the Pardon Attorney with paperwork and investigation related to Johnson since he’s dead. They preferred to use the resources on investigating the claims of living people in potential need of help.

Pardoning Jack Johnson to pwn Obama is honestly a pretty good idea.

Mr Peepers seems like a really obscure reference to me ... I had to look it up and even after doing so I don’t really get it.

I think you need to take the “jobs guarantee” people seriously rather than literally.

Genuinely amazing that amidst all these scandals Bowser has no opponent to capitalize on them.

Hard to see how they manage to deliver all those packages with that kind of memo-writing schedule.

Every theory I’ve ever read about how to make meetings better seems like a distinct second-best to simply not having the meeting.
