David Waldman presents KITM with as little evil corporative cahootage as possible today. Most of the show will be devoted to an airing and study of just about every detail and point of view of that hullabaloo at the Nevada State Party Convention you all have been talking about.

Here is a report from the Clark County convention back in April. Here is the NV State Convention, moment by moment through a delegate’s eyes. Here are more witness accounts, and a collection of the fallout since.

Greg Dworkin is also free from cahoots, though not from opinions: Whose fault is the Nevada brouhaha? Some think it’s this guy, or maybe this guy. Is Sanders getting framed? Or is it Sanders supporters sour grapes? Bernie is not reigning in his supporters. Will Sanders staying in the race hurt Clinton? There are still more primaries—and an election— to think about.

Joan McCarter eases the tension by changing the subject to those dopes in DC: It’s almost 100 days since we have had a Supreme Court vacancy. The deadlocked Supreme Court punts on the Obamacare contraceptive mandate. A “diminished” Supreme Court is still a broken one. Elizabeth Warren simply does not understand the Republicans.

To close with good news:  Thanks Obama!
