What did you do for David Waldman’s birthday last weekend? Both Armando and I celebrated the way we always have, with our own birthday parties!

Sadly John McCain, who died this weekend, was only 4 days shy of his birthday. Greg Dworkin tells us that with John McCain gone, so is the Republican Party. No one could ever take the place of John McCain, but the AZ governor sort of has to set that up, as it’s his job to place an actual Republican, or whatever it is that is available now, into that position. Alternatively, they could put in a placeholder, like his wife, or somebody.

Trump disapproval remains remarkably stable, although Trump loathing must shot up at least as fast as the White House flag this morning. Independent voters might be finally catching on, for good.

As a rule, a sociopathic dotard exhibits no respect, everEveryone and everything Donald touches rots. His supporters have already rotted.

Manafort and Cohen thought they’d get away with it, because everyone always gets away with it.

David digs into the nuts and bolts of the latest major Democratic Party reforms, in anticipation of when Armando calls up and they really dig into it.
