David Waldman survives the week holed up with the kids. Next week, like last week, will be a 4 day school week, allowing the Xbox some time to cool off.
Greg Dworkin watched some of the Republican debate, as well as the Donald Trump salutes Trump special. The verdict: Trump won them both. At the debate Ben Carson closed big and ominously with a reading of the Constitution. Was this his dog whistle for the 3%-ers? or the Article III-ers? David and Greg look into where these two fringe groups meet, including the legal, historical, and cultural roots of these loonies.
In related news, Donald Trump gets trolled by the huger billionaire. Back in the real world, Governor Snyder’s standing weakens in the midst of the Flint water crisis, although he would need to be weakened much more to have his position really threatened.
