Happy Pi Day! Mmmm Hmmmm! David Waldman just placed a piping hot KITM on the windowsill to cool:

Beto O'Rourke and his teeth have announced they are running for President. You know who else has big teeth? (I think those articles were about teeth, maybe. Who has the time anymore?) Greg Dworkin suggests skipping the human candidates and concentrating on their dogs. But who can choose between so many great contenders?

Donald Trump’s emergency is turning into a real one for him and his declaration. Mike Lee wanted to help Trump out, but Donald wasn’t interested. Nancy Pelosi, proponent of bipartisanship, saw some today with a 420-0 vote calling for the public release of the Mueller report. Mark Warner and Susan Collins introduced a bill to control how Trump grants and revokes security clearances.

The university bribing and cheating scandal shows that money is the real affirmative action scandal. As mom Lori Loughlin enters a holding cell, daughter Olivia Jade boards the USC Trustee Chairman’s yacht. Rick Singer set up a fake charity to mask bribes and payoffs from the IRS. The difference between corruption and philanthropy is the number of zeros on the check.

Donald Trump’s shutdown brought chaos to the skies, with pilots now finding out how much they were screwed

Paul Manafort’s lawyer was fact-checked live in front of the Washington D.C. federal courthouse, just as New York prosecutors stepped up for their turn. 

Fox News will have to lose a lot of money before they drop Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro, and are well on their way to that goal.  Jacob Wohl caught making death threats against Jacob Wohl. Matt Whitaker might be gone, but is still digging. Staunch Trump ally James Risch tried to temper bipartisan criticism to Trump's response to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, but he sucks at his job.

Generic Dem edges out Donald in Florida, but won’t be the one running against him.
