Brrr! Cosy up to KITM as David Waldman and Greg Dworkin warm us up for this week’s news:
Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day some of us have off, and most of us respect. Just down yonder from KITM World Headquarters, lawmakers in the Virginia Senate have passed three gun measures. Therefore what better time than MLK day to hold a legislative loser gun nut convention? Today’s cosplay ensembles have been on point right down to Rachel Ray’s scarf. Of course, for some of these Jojo Rabbits, their fantasies might be too close to reality, so keep a distance.
Do go ahead and make fun of the new Space Force uniforms, but when one of our boys is shot down over Endor you might sing a different tune.
Lev Parnas isn’t a distraction, he’s central to how Trump operates, and Trump goes through a lot of them. The entire Administration runs illegal schemes. Therefore, literally all of them are involved, lie at multiple points, and obstruct justice. If Lev wanted to leave, he had to leave noisily or he might leave quietly. William Barr might have hoped arresting Parnas would have been the quiet way, but Lev’s pictures say a thousand words.
For 2020, it’s Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar neck and neck for the New York Times. Joe Biden smiles. Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t smiling. Bernie Bros, on the other hand, are just the same mob for a different president. Polls remain stable, although slowly heading in a good direction.
