Anatomy of a Smackdown

Just about everyone who has seen the Will Smith-Chris Rock incident at last Sunday night’s Oscar ceremonies has an opinion – including a body language expert calling himself Spidey.  He’s also a self-proclaimed mental and hypnotist.  I’m not sure where one goes to attain certification in any of these disciplines, but they have to be intriguing fields of study nonetheless.

Regardless, Spidey breaks down every nuanced move of the three main parties involved.  This is a rather lengthy video, but I feel it’s worth the time.  After all, we all know the adage: actions speak louder than words!

Best Quotes of the Week – April 2, 2022

“Attorney General Garland, do your job so we can do ours.”

Rep. Elaine Luria, to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on pursuing former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows over the January 6, 2021 insurrection

Meadows has refused to cooperate with investigators, but the U.S. Department of Justice has seemed reluctant to hold him in contempt of Congress.

“Ultimately, the momentary exchange between three wealthy and powerful celebrities pales to the systemic ills and public health crises and international war crimes we are daily immersed in, but it’s also a microcosm of what’s at stake as we face all of them.”

John Pavlovitz, about Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at last Sunday’s Oscar ceremonies

“The Department of Justice has a duty to act on this referral and others that we have sent. Without enforcement of congressional subpoenas, there is no oversight, and without oversight, no accountability — for the former president, or any other president, past, present, or future. Without enforcement of its lawful process, Congress ceases to be a co-equal branch of government.”

Rep. Adam Schiff, in a statement to U.S. Attorney General Garland about Mark Meadows
