Comments following a story about Devin Nunes’ antics

 is truly painful to watch the impeachment hearings when Devin Nunes (R-Fresno), a putative dairy farmer, keeps stepping in meadow muffins... And Nunes had only his Steele Dossier talking points to close with. When all you have is a milking bucket and chair, everything looks like a cow udder. But it takes a lot of pull. You just have to know how to tug the right way. That one was
