Amidst the bustle and the hubbub of the KITM World headquarters and pancake shoppe, David Waldman sends us off this morning with well-packed book bags and podcasts:

Donald Trump bandages his stigmata and takes us into federal shutdown day 26. As always Trump remains behind the curve on his latest franchise attempt.

Greg Dworkin assures us that Individual-1can’t be anyone’s #1 choice in 2020, Donald’s wall boxed him in with nowhere to go. Independents quit Trump, no matter what you are calling independents.

Neither side has yet given in on the wall, but that doesn’t mean they ain’t losing. The shutdown is just starting to hit the elite where it hurts. There is a tradition of making politicians save themselves from what they are doing. A bipartisan Senate letter tries “good faith”. Trump continues to thrash away, with Chuck Schumer holding the line a bit more before reeling him in. Nancy Pelosi sends a letter to Trump reminding him who is boss, and it’s not Vlad. Donald will now fire back, through his and Mitch McConnell’s feet.

Steve King is so racist, Iowa has noticed. Kevin McCarthy already has accomplished more than Paul Ryan.

The shutdown doesn’t slow down Joan McCarter’s DC reporting: Mitch McConnell is getting roasted inside his shell and will have to poke his head out soon. Mortgage Bankers profit big in the shutdown. T-Mobile's corruption is as plain as a Fuchsia tie.

2016 Lickspittle Chris Christie put his big boy pants back on and finally stood up to that pencil neck geek tormenting him.
