I keep reading people saying that people like his agenda but have no idea what’s in it.

If Manchin and Sinema can hold firm, they’ll be doing their party an enormous favor.

@ka_hackett  @pshmellI  agree with you, and intend to hold myself accountable by strongly opposing any measure that would give you funding and thereby valorize the system.

Joe Biden has absolutely no idea what to say or do about COVID-19, because his election-year schtick was cheap, glib, opportunistic nonsense that was always going to come back to bite him.

The idea that if you don’t buy every last criticism of Donald Trump, as defined by David Frum, you’re some sort of anti-anti-anti-anti- whataboutist is ridiculous.

That Frum has resorted to this type of derogation-by-association is perhaps unsurprising given that the material case that he is making against Russiagate’s skeptics — whom he calls “denialists” — is so profoundly embarrassing.

Roe was a lie about the meaning of the law. Everything else is noise.


Mayor Kerner says that he offered to talk to 60 Minutes but CBS declined. He says Palm Beach County asked for the Publix relationship, and that CBS knew that but “left it out because it kneecaps their narrative.” And he says that the media is “hellbent on dividing us.”

This is my tenth Independence Day since I moved to America and my third since I became an American, and I still feel as happy and as grateful to be here as I did when I first stepped off the plane.

It remains astonishing that CNN thinks it’s appropriate for the governor of New York—who has presided over more than ten times as many deaths as Florida, a more populous state—to be interviewed as a matter of course by his own brother. And now this.

There’s something deeply peculiar about the way that this protestor collapses into a frenzied, tearful, childish rage the moment the older gentleman asks her a basic question.

The delicious irony here is that the biggest purveyor of false information in this affair has been the NBC News Verification Unit.

Unfortunately, with Yang out of the race, there are no politicians left who are willing to bribe us with our own money.

This checks out. Just like Chuck Schumer, whenever I want to address unnamed senators, I preface what I'm saying with "I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh." That way it's clear that I'm talking to the members of the Senate.
