David Waldman sits high atop Mount Kagro, mead in hand, surveying all before him and dispensing opinions. Unfortunately, the Mueller report was not yet before him, so consider today’s KITM to be your pre-Mueller report primer. Today is also Greg Dworkin’s retirement day! (But not from this show, so he still had to clock in here.)
You know what someone should’ve asked William Barr this morning? Of course, Barr would have just lied, or even worse, told the truth. The media is not fully prepared to handle either tactic. Barr doesn’t care what the media, or you think. Alarmed? Appalled? Enraged? Armando was made for this moment, and brings the rant down. Legislators have a constitutional responsibility to confront this head on. Our leaders leap into action, by becoming incrementally sterner, a gambit they’ve employed for over a generation.
Oh well, at least in the end the Kavanaugh hearings motivated Dems more than Republicans, it seems. (Brett Kavanaugh is still on the Supreme Court.) Voters aren’t awfully impressed with the Trump tax scam, it turns out. (It is still law.) Polls are looking pretty good though. (C’mon 2020!)
