from one year ago today: Unhappy Inauguration Day. no surprise, it’s hard to maintain the energy from that time. but resistance, Indivisible in particular, is going strong and still needs every voice

“Today is the day many American politicians pretend to care about the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr, one of the wisest souls who attempted to save this sorry nation. Don’t fall for their scams.”

Could Texas turn blue in 2018? “stranger things have happened. In 1995, Donald Trump was a spokesman for Pizza Hut’s stuffed crust pizza. Today he has access to America’s nuclear arsenal”

problematic monument handled cleverly in small Italian town: “A sign of its success is that it almost completely failed to generate controversy, either nationally or locally.”

feckless liar @tedcruz on unconfirmed cause of Border Patrol death: “a stark reminder of the ongoing threat that an unsecure border poses to the safety of our communities”, vs. on gun control after Sutherland Springs: “We don’t need politics right now”

Fallows: “Before any news org tells her to pipe down… I’d like to see them be as honest about their responsibility”

Klein: “there is a moral imperative for informed, caring people to name the real root causes behind this crisis”

ferocious. Tina Fey on this week’s Weekend Update, “sheetcaking is a grassroots movement, Colin”

Taibbi: “An alien crashed on earth & given a 2-minute tutorial on dealing w/reporters would have done a better job”

Gessen: “queer rights are anything but a distraction: they are… the frontier in the global turn toward autocracy”
