It's even worse than it appears.

The Democrats need more evil. Learn to enjoy Republican suffering. They need to see McConnell lose his shit. To have Shelly Adelson tip over in his wheelchair he gets so pissed. No more bipartisan bullshit. Democrats will not be done until the Republican Party is no more. #
If we followed politics with the same attention we do for series like Game of Thrones, Godless or The Crown, we'd figure stuff out with a lot less information a lot faster. And if we used the probabilities that sports teaches us, we'd be another 100 percent smarter.#
New feature: The Discuss tab. If you go there, you'll see a box with a Disqus thread. As I write this there's one comment, a test, that says "Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends. We're so glad you could attend. Come inside come inside." There is a link to the comment guidelines at the top of the page, from previous discussion features on this blog. From time to time I will reset the thread, starting fresh. Between resets comments will accumulate. Not sure where this is going. In the past it has gotten to be too much work to moderate the comments. Maybe this is the time we find a happy equilibrium. 🚀#
Caught a bit of the Brian Lehrer show on WNYC. Heard a common idea, that the Trump thing is a replay of Watergate. "At this point in Watergate..." his guest was heard to say. Dear people. This is not Watergate. There were no Nazis in Watergate. The most offensive American at the time was Archie Bunker, who, like Trump, was a TV character. The Mets had won the World Series. The Internet had barely gotten started. The moon landing. Woodstock had just happened. The Beatles were all still alive. It was a different time. Trump is not Nixon. Nixon could be shamed. He resigned rather than put the country (and himself) through impeachment. Trump seems to revel in his own degradation and humiliation. He thrives off it. This won't go the way of Watergate. I'd give you odds. I think there will be a lot of dumbfounded people when Trump doesn't play the script the way we wish he would.#
If your precious ideas can't stand dissent then your ideas are your problem.#
Poll: Who is Trump?#
