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