Daily Kos presents Daily Kos Radio. Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by Contributing Editor David Waldman

It’s Wednesday on KITM! Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter brought so much today that David Waldman barely had time for trenchant observations and piercing asides:

Order, ORDER! An historic rebel victory in Britain as Conservative MP Phillip Lee crosses to the light side of the House of Commons... Chaos! Which is kind of okay, at the moment, as Greg explains.

Chaos! Which sucks here, as Greg has been explaining for a while now. Some people just want to watch the world burn. Finally, the truth is making its way into the news.

Donald Trump trails Democrats by a historically large margin. It will still be a lot of work, but Trump is not unbeatable. Both sides look to farm country for a clue.

David and Joan dig that Texas swing, as the fifth Lone Star Republican bails on the House. The panicked Gop sends Donald to North Carolina to save that special election, now that they can’t rely on gerrymanders to help. Meanwhile Trump takes 3.6 billion out of military homes, schools, and medical facilities for his wall.

Kroger and Walmart see open carriers sort of like the people that poop in their produce aisle. It might make one customer happy, but overall it cuts into business. Ammon Bundy fails a background check for an Idaho gun purchase. Ammon should buddy up with Dan Crenshaw, who would never check the background of a friend. Moscow Mitch McConnell has lots of friends in Russia and the NRA, and who does background checks on cash?
