Now we have a perfect illustration: Rep. Andy Barr invited AOC to get mugged by, I mean, talk to coal miners in his KY district about the Green New Deal. But it turns out that there aren't any coal miners in his district! 2/https://t.co/ur8IpRapqQ

I've argued for a while that "coal country" hasn't been coal country for a long time; the local economies depend far more on things like health care, and the coal obsession gets in the way of addressing real issues 1/ https://t.co/3r6tQs6ldR

But as it happens, logistical considerations (I'll be in midair at filing time) mean that I have to put the column in before whatever happens, happens. Instead I wrote about a non-news-sensitive issue. Just an FYI for anyone wondering 2/

Will I be the only pundit not writing about Mueller for Friday's newspaper? I probably wouldn't even if I could – I care about collusion and obstruction as much as anyone, but have no special expertise 1/

The smearing of CAP and @neeratanden is really something to behold, because it suggests that some people in both the media and political life have learned nothing. For the first time in a couple of years I'm starting to feel that Trump might get reelected.

Remember: the two main means-tested programs in America are Medicaid and SNAP (food stamps). In each case most beneficiaries are children, elderly, or disabled. The idea that we're handing out billions to lazy bums is false and slanderous.

Susan Collins says she's concerned about deficits, and that's why she's voting for the tax bill. I'm watching my weight, and that's why I'm having a huge piece of pie with ice cream.

I read the news today, oh boy. Shocked at how little there is about the anti-democratic coup in Wisconsin. A once-progressive US state has just been turned into Hungary on the Great Lakes. Where's the wave of outrage?

By the way, if you're wondering why coverage of the huge marches yesterday seems kind of muted, it's because those hundreds of thousands weren't sitting in diners in small-town America, and therefore don't count. Also many of them were women.

Not really tracking this whole Pelosi-as-speaker thing. But really: the most effective speaker in modern history, who just oversaw a highly effective campaign, and is still vigorous. Yes, Republicans demonize her. So? Why on earth not use her demonstrated skills for now?
