Did Neil Gorsuch rise out of the floor with fog machines and strobes when Trump introduced him? (Right about here I would include a link to the video, but no force on Earth could make me watch that.)

David Waldman didn’t watch either, but it still seems to have happened so now it’s time to do something about it, or not.

Greg Dworkin keeps it 100 for us, as usual. Don’t be like Venezuela. Don’t be a victim or a culprit. Show no contempt. Don’t try to force Trump out. Because nothing ever will come out such behavior, ever. Steve Bannon still prefers an embarrassed and humiliated opposition.

At least White Supremacist Steve Bannon, whose white skin seems to be rejecting him,  is out in the open now.

How do you appeal to an elected official? Tell him how to keep getting elected. Republicans throw out the rule book, because that is the last thing they need.

Armando still likes rules, and says it’s time for a filibuster, because an illegitimate President is attempting to fill an illegitimate vacancy. Time for outrage, and outrageous obstruction. Senators are going to have to use the filibuster some time, so it might as well be now. You know McConnell needs to keep the filibuster, as much as we do

Maybe we can still call them hypocrites. Trump's voter fraud expert is registered to vote in 3 states. The Pee Dossier said Putin offered Trump 19% of Rosneft if he became President and removed sanctions. Last week 19.5% of Rosneft was sold...

David reminisces about when rules made a difference, and spines were stiffer. Back when Neil Gorsuch’s mom was destroying the EPA.  

We still are certain about a few things. People support the Women’s MarchWalls make us less freeAll action will be necessary.
