I suppose there’s hardly a day that goes by lately where this couldn’t be said, but on this I cannot stay silent. Mr. Trump, sir, please shut the hell up before you ruin this for all of us.

“A frank and honest description of who [Sarah Huckabee Sanders] is and what she does would be much more harsh…” indeed.

“Then there’s Austin, which is totally crazy. If you walk from one end of downtown Austin to the other, you cross three different congressional districts” @TexasObserver, on gerrymandering ahead of Texas’ appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to preserve racist districts

I know, it’s just one poll. but for Beto to be in “too close to call” range of Cruz? in mid-April? hell. yes.

(brb, getting some merch to help boost that name recognition)

The New Yorker: “There are lots of details and surprises to come, but the endgame of this Presidency seems as clear now as those of Iraq and the financial crisis did months before they unfolded.”

even apart from Mueller, Cohen, Stormy, etc., look what these sons of bitches are doing. “The new interpretation reverses decades of action by Republican & Democratic administrations to protect the animals as they navigate the globe… Oil companies are the greatest beneficiaries”

“Cruz continued work with Cambridge Analytica for months after allegations surfaced that the Facebook data had been received illicitly. Recent revelations show the data harvesting was far more extensive… among the biggest privacy breaches in history.”

“there is no Collusion with an ancient Lovecraftian horror that thrives on psychic discord! Or Russia.”

Atlantic City came up in iTunes shuffle today, reminding of this absolute masterpiece (best enjoyed while listening along; also, if the images seem like ancient history, note they’re from just 3 months ago) 🎵

this – about clapping (!) – is off the charts for both stupidity and repugnance. “Un-American. Somebody said treasonous. I mean, yeah, I guess, why not? Can we call that treason? Why not? I mean they certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much.”

The Guardian fact-checks last night’s speech. “The president’s claims linking immigrants to violent crime are baseless.”

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”

love a good rant-review, like this Esquire coverage of a Roy Moore rally: “It was a naked appeal to unreason. It was the Rose Parade of empowered ignorance. It was the Royal Wedding of Stupid and Mean” come on, Alabama, you can do it. elect the good one

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.”
