The Democrats continue to be revolting, in a quite inspirational fashion. David Waldman believes nothing huge should be expected, but as increments go, these are a nice ones. Paul Ryan allowed no bills and got no breaks. The Gop won’t give in, no matter how hard they lose.

Greg Dworkin calls in to discuss how parties matter, and how they are not the same. John Lewis’ nonviolence training and tradition.

Donald Trump said some crazy, non-sensical, conspiracy theories and lies. If you didn’t catch it, Clownstick’ll be doing it again and again for the next few months because he will not be pivoting anywhere. Trump runs his campaign like a real estate deal.

Obamacare is working, but both sides see an advantage in trashing it.

Hey, remember when the Republicans fought for your freedom to get $3.50 per gallon gas? One way this differs from today’s fight for gun safety is new social media technology. C-SPAN circumvents the House blackout on sit-in coverage.
