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

David Waldman welcomes all the cools kids back from Netroots Nation. If you thought it was too far away this year, the good news is maybe it’ll be closer in Philadelphia in 2019.

Greg Dworkin had two enormous stories to share, and skipped over them to talk about Qanon. It seems that masterminds of MAGA caught on to our prank. Now that the jig’s up, we’ll have to concentrate on winning elections by fielding candidates set to do good for their constituents. Kris Kobach is becoming renown for grifting and stupidity, and thus is a shoe-in for the Kansas Republican primary. Corrupt Democrat Robert Menendez is buoyed by being a Democrat in 2018, foundering by being a crook.  

The enormousest story, of course, is Donald Trump throwing Jr. under the bus while managing to be swept under the duallys himself. Trump continues making stuff up, while dancing the puppet hopak. How does Hope Hicks do it

A Trump Troll apologizes, and reaches his hand out in friendship... Thanks! Let’s work together to reestablish a nation of laws, and move on together. Republicans keep mum on their 2018 agenda also. No one likes printed guns, but you can’t stay in the Gop if you say that. Russia likes the US court system for its ease in eliminating dissidents

Are we in an Orwellian or Huxleyist dystopia? Why deny ourselves the experience of both?
