David Waldman and Greg Dworkin bring us up-to-date, and they have a lot to bring:

Oodles happened this weekend. Remember that teeny-tiny part of it when Republicans told us what they were going to say today? That’s ok, nobody does. John Bolton booted  all that into the stratosphere. Remember when John Bolton was a short-fused loose-cannon jerk? A few Republicans seem to have forgot... They probably should have “read the manuscript”, which describes a whole new level of quid pro quo.  Republicans, in disarray, don’t know what to do, or pretend to do, or to pretend to pretend to do. Lindsey Graham performs an aggressive retrograde advancement maneuver, stage left. Mike Braun wanders back out of the trenches and into the line of fire

NBA superstar, Academy Award winner Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were among nine people killed yesterday morning in a helicopter crash in Southern California. 

The death toll from the Wuhan virus more than doubled over the weekend, and has spread to at least 12 countries. China has a quarantine across 16 cities totaling almost 50 million people, as the virus spreads to two to three new people for each person infected. Mongolia closes its border with China, as evidence shows that the outbreak was downplayed at first. Publicly funded scientific infrastructure to the rescue!

Backing way up to last week, you might remember Mike Pompeo was a dick. Most voters polled said they wanted Donald Trump removed from office, and just about any Democrat to replace him, but mostly Joe Biden, although, as of last week it was still way too close. Back to impeachment... That call doesn’t sound so perfect anymore. Rudy Colludy went back with buddies Lev and Igor further than he remembers, unless it was only those two pulling Trump’s strings all along! Will Alan Dershowitz remember that there’s already precedence against his case
