Still annoying that a superdelegate endorsed this early.

Superdelegates aren't really a thing until the second ballot. Most candidates have gotten state party endorsements.

Still sticks in my craw.

Good use of executive time

I'm trying to imagine which is more amusing, him dismissing his attorneys trying to discuss Mueller, or his aides trying to get him to do his job, to do this.

Trump asked Whitaker if a Trump supporter could unrecuse himself and oversee the Cohen investigation.

Telling that so many are trying to torpedo Bernie within 12 hours of him announcing...

Makes me wish I'd donated more than I just did.  But not so much that I'm going to.  Right now, anyway.

I threw a hundo at him. Then a few shirts, which count as a donation too. Like $165 today...

This is what grassroots support looks like.

I'm almost sure that the Dem primary is over at this point... We're just a Booker speech, a Harris "criminal justice reform", and a Klobacher-beating-an-intern away from wrapping this up...

I don’t really trust McCabe’s word, but he’s saying that Jeff Sessions didn’t know the difference between Sunni and Shiite denominations of Islam.

I posted earlier today that his reputation is shot after the IG report, yet the media is fawning over him the last couple of days.

I want a more reliable narrator.

One of my former students whohas been working in the DNC for years told me about a conversation she had about a month ago.  She was thinking about joining the Klobuchar campaign, but a friend of hers who is high up in Minnesota politics told her explicitly that she shouldn’t do it because of how Klobuchar abuses her workers.  One of the things that she apparently did was, when she was traveling with the state-law required police escort, she would never allow them to stop for meals.  Some of them worked all day on her detail withouth eating.  She was also told some other stories that haven’t been made public (yet) that were worse than the stuff being reported.
