    The southron lords are too soft to follow the northern ways.

    Hey, we northerners don't execute anyone. We've even got rules about extraditing people to countries where they would be executed.

    Yep. Instead, we spent however many decades are needed convincing them that they were wrong and we were right.

    It's just as effective, and personality I find that much more satisfying.

    Oh, I agree. I was just making a GoT reference, and pointing out that the people sentencing others to die are too cowardly to not rely on others to do the deed.

    "The man that passes the sentence should swing the sword" is a great idea, if what you want is a litmus test that ensures all of your leaders are people who enjoy violence

    Only if every leader is fine with capital punishment in the first place.

    I know governors have pardon power, do they have the ability to commute a death penalty to a life sentence? I'm sure I've seen that somewhere, but I'm not sure if it's got to be all or nothing with pardons/commutations?

    Cause...
    "Governor, there are 6 people scheduled to die in the next month. You'll be required to execute them."
    *governor signs six pieces of paper*
    "Nope. Next order of business."

    All of these solutions are clever ways of making capital punishment less palatable to people that aren't really enthused with it anyway. It's not going to stop Texas

    Marty: The future, it's where you're going?
    Doc: That's right, twenty five years into the future. I've always dreamed on seeing the future, looking beyond my years, seeing the progress of mankind. I'll also be able to see who wins the next twenty-five world series.

    It's not just Texas. I'm willing to bet you'd get people from all over lining up to execute a guy who rapes and eats babies (as a hypothetical example, of course).

    You guys are still talking about this stuff like they're proposed solutions to the death penalty.

    They're not.

    The only proposed solution is to abolish the death penalty.

    But if you have a governor, let's say, who spent $30,000+ of his own money to campaign on a referendum to bring back the death penalty to his state? And he wins? And he doesn't have the balls to be in the room when the first execution in 19+ years happens? And his prisons director admits that they won't be able to get the drugs for any future executions?

    He should have to eat that shit when he's up for re-election. And his opponents should use as many Ned Stark references as they want.

    The impression I got from the episode is that the most humane method of execution would involve properly administered general anesthesia. Right? And the condemned don't get that because doctors refuse to administer it. Which is understandable but boy also a real gray area. I know if I was on death row I'd rather a doctor break their principles than, you know, be tortured to death

    But no doctor would do it

    And even if you find a doctor willing to break their hippocratic oath, they still wouldn't do it because they would become an untouchable to every hospital and practice in the country, if not every developed and most developing nations on planet Earth.

    Seth also had Meghan McCain on last night and took her to task for her comments. I'm linking this article because it has text of the interview and I can't stand how McCain talks. Like Grima Wormtongue without the subtlety.

    I would swear this was posted a while ago, and there was a follow up post exactly like preacher's. Like, I distinctly have a memory of seeing that video when it was first posted to youtube and then reading a post like preacher's, but it also feels like it was much longer ago than... 8 fucking days?!

    Is this the Berenstein or Berenstene universe?

    Based on some of the stuff I read this is a normal reaction for him, he also got worked up with how Megan was portrayed in SNL as well.

    Megan might have shitty beliefs, but it seems like she's willing to let it go after she's had her say. Which I kinda guess she'd have to be able to do, since getting told out for GoP bullshit is basically her purpose on The View.

    What? No she doesn't, she brings up her petty beefs on the view all the time. Like Meyers was specifically hitting her on the continued insistence that Omar is a huge anti semite.

    That's kinda what I meant about shitty beliefs.

    But that was still a pretty terrible comment on my part. I'm trying to show bemusement about how her husband seems to think he needs to go on a Twitter rant whenever people say mean things to a or about her, even though the main reason she's on the View is to replace the last token conservative on the show that got into such arguments with everyone.

    His staff of writers is pretty top notch. One of the best things about Seth though, is how much he'll highlight his writers, especially the women writers.

    Amber clearly gets her share, but Jenny and Ally both have running bits (Jokes Seth Can't Tell and Point/Counterpoint), but others get theres too (Leave Him Alone guy, and various writers get to do 'Writer Explains A Joke' bits).

    Daily Show obviously does this with "correspondents", but most tend to hide their staff. I like Seth doesn't.

    EDIT: Arguably my favorite bit with writers taking a good portion of the episode runtime to be featured.


    I'm sure @Forar will add his favorite bit, which is funny in a different way.

    While I enjoy many of the late night shows these days, Seth is probably my favorite, for exactly the reasons already outlined. The spotlight he gives to his writers, as well as how transparent he seems to be.
    Putting Amber Ruffin on TV alone is worth something.

    I wish the audience would've given Michelle Wolf a chance, RE: her Netflix show. It had a couple rough experiments at its start but she found her stride for what to do with the show after.

    I will always respect a comedian who is trying new shit instead of sticking to formulas. That's part of what makes Conan O'Brien so great and standout for his gen of late night show hosts. He was more experimental than they were and that's how we got the Masturbating Bear and such.

    I have MorganV to thank for getting me into Seth and their team, so yeah, if we're gonna talk incredible Meyers/co bits, this is one of my favourites;


    (Starts at the 4 minute mark)

    I do so love the evolution of the bit to have him tell 2, and Jenny's reaction on the second attempt gets me Every. Single. Time.

    But lately I've been on a real Amber Says What kick.

    By which I mean I found a playlist, and watched/listened to it for like 3 hours straight one night.

    A Closer Look was weird last night. Not bad weird, but weird. A significant portion of it is dedicated to talking about how Trump cheats at golf. Not that he does, the actual specifics of how. It's actually kinda relevant and indicative of what kind of person he is because it's how he behaves in every facet of his life. It's fascinating how much of a brazen petty piece of shit he is.
