Of all days to be out of the office!

We had to go with a rerun today. But it's always interesting to check in on how things were Way Back When. Everything always seems so quaint and simple! Even when you're looking back on a day that was well into the Trump Era!

Today, we present our October 5, 2017 episode:

It’s Karma Thursday on KITM and David Waldman is here with guest Greg Dworkin to serve up just desserts: 

U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy has zero issue posting his pro-life stance all over the place and no issue asking the woman he had an affair with to have an abortion. Now he’s thinking of spending more time with his family.

The organizer of the Alt-Right rally in Charlottesville, Va might go to jail for perjury.

Elijah Cummings wants to know who’s paying for Kellyanne Conway’s jet trips.

The Trump/Russia/Steele/Pee-pee dossier is now in the hopefully latex-gloved hands of Robert Mueller.

Senator John Thune thinks perhaps you deserve to get shot if you don’t get small.

Turns out Donald Trump is both a dotard and a moron. Trump’s speechwriter used up the “A“ material on his first post-massacre speech, raising the bar for subsequent white on white slaughter addresses. The Gop realizes that now is the time to politicize tragedy. Some Republicans might be open to discussing meaningless gestures—so is David if it eventually leads to something worthwhile. Gop donors are finding less and less worthwhile.  

On the Democratic side things are looking up in Virginia, as Democrat Ralph Northam has a clear lead over Republican Ed Gillespie for governor.

When David and I win the Nobel Prize for Kagro in the Morning, the rules state that we can only pick one more recipient, which is really unfair when you think about it. Nobel Prizes in Science distort the nature of the scientific enterprise, rewrite its history, and overlook many of its most important contributors. Did Jim Watson and Francis Crick steal Rosalind Franklin’s data on the structure of DNA

Who would guess Milburn Pennybags would be a lefty troll? But there he/she was, at the Senate Equifax Hearing.

And—Author Paula Apynys is back to read Part Four of “The Domestic Abuse Cycle: A Framework for our Politics and a Path Forward”!
