How broken is the US Senate? This broken: An anonymous GOP Senator is single-handedly blocking a simple vote on a crucial nominee. No one knows who it is. No one knows why. No one thinks it has anything to do with the nominee’s merits. And this is considered normal. twitter.com/NoahBookbinder…

Removing Jefferson’s statue “represents a lumping together of the Confederates and a member of the founding generation in a way which I think minimizes the crimes and the problems with the Confederacy,” said @agordonreed. nytimes.com/2021/10/18/nyr…

That's $100 billion over 10 years - or half the cost of universal pre-K, which we're told we can't afford. They literally just threw it in there, extra, no questions asked, no media coverage, no political arguments. This whole funding/spending debate is so messed up. twitter.com/rtiron/status/…

I think this sort of thing might have an effect. Obviously the Dem Party can't attach political costs to his current stance, but there's no reason why concerned citizens shouldn't influence his cost-benefit analysis. twitter.com/donwinslow/sta…

There are a lot of dumb things in this so-called lawsuit, but one of the dumbest is the plaintiff describing himself as DONALD J. TRUMP, in his capacity as the 45th President of the United States, The Mar-A-Lago Club… talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker/trum…

I've now seen Manchin's "utilities are already doing" it line in probably a half-dozen stories, and not a single journalist has seen fit to point out that it is demonstrably false. Every one of them just lets it sit there. What is journalism for?

Amazing, when you step back, how a whole political party is now defined by a bogus claims of election theft about an election that was pretty straightforward and not even very close. twitter.com/joshtpm/status…

Virginia Democrats unilaterally surrenders to Republicans in the states’ latest redistricting maps in the name of bipartisanship. Yet another example of why so called bipartisan or nonpartisan redistricting efforts are shambolic jokes always hurting Democrats. 👀@DKElectionssk

A brilliant essay about an astounding piece of theater—back from the pandemic. twitter.com/Helen_E_Shaw/s…
I say theater is back because I just saw Mia Katigbak in Bust by Jeesun Choi and Bryn Herdrich at @sohorep Cannot believe it was a lab production. Really incredible. Whole cast exceptional. Tight production. Writing and direction great.

I don’t think @thegridkid has absorbed the lessons of UNDAUNTED and DEGLAZED.

I’ve seen some snark about Trump-obsessed voters, but voting against one party in a two party system because it is still led by Donald Trump and therefore needs to be defeated at all levels seems about as rational an approach to voting as I can fathom twitter.com/ThePlumLineGS/…

Manchin will be blamed—and rightly so—for kowtowing to coal and oil barons and letting the planet burn. But we mustn’t let the real villains off the hook: the entire Republican party, acting in lockstep, without whom Manchin would be nothing. twitter.com/paulkrugman/st…

As @eliehonig writes, the judiciary is an effective branch of government only if its decisions are timely. Allowing witnesses to stall in responding to congressional subpoenas is a surrender of power that weakens the legislature and the judiciary itself. cafe.com/elies-note/not…

One sobering thing about this is that the Republicans, whose president created the EPA and who once provided a lot of support for environmental measures, are assumed to be nowhere when it comes to fighting climate change. twitter.com/brhodes/status…

He plans to gut Biden's climate plan, and with it the chances for swift global progress. This is high on the list of most consequential actions ever taken by an individual Senator; you'll be able to see the impact of this vain man in the geologic record. nytimes.com/2021/10/15/cli…

Have you noticed how bad the mail is these days? Trump’s crony DeJoy is still destroying the Postal Service from within. Trump’s appointees still control the Board of Governors. A crisis is coming. The Republicans who caused the crisis are already blaming Biden. twitter.com/rmayemsinger/s…
Dems are right to gerrymander Illinois. Hopefully they’ll do New York too. Dems are currently trying to pass legislation which dramatically curtails gerrymandering in every state. GOPs continue to filibuster that law. That’s the story. No unilateral disarmament. Cry more.

unfortunate that most elite legal minds to the left of FedSocs see problem as the court facing a legitimacy crisis and needing to pump up its perceived legitimacy as opposed to the problem being that this court is actually illegitimate and how to fix it. slate.com/news-and-polit…

Illinois, a state we’ve waited on with anticipation, dropped its 1st redistricting map. As expected, it’s quite the Dem gerrymander & may take out GOPers Adam Kinzinger & Rodney Davis. But maybe Dems will regret not being even more aggressive? Our take: projects.fivethirtyeight.com/redistricting-…

Every congressional Democrat voted for national standards to prevent gerrymandering, every Republican voted against them. Every conservative justice is against judicial review of gerrymanders, every liberal justice is for them. Now fashie turds want us to unilaterally disarm twitter.com/M_McAdams/stat…

Former Presidents have no executive privilege. The privilege is held by the current president to whom the former president may appeal to invoke it on his behalf. The current president is the custodian of the records of the government of the united states. End of story. Cry more.

UNDAUNTED seems like a clear goof, as opposed to a judgment call.
