      Bruce Bartlett, former Reagan and Bush I economic adviser: I think many Democrats and independent political observers are puzzled by the intensity with which Republicans are pursuing their tax cut. It’s not politically popular and may well lead to the party’s defeat in next year’s congressional elections. So why do it? The answer is that […]

      Perhaps Trump is doing this for petty reasons, but this is a good thing. Media is absurdly over-concentrated already, and should not be more so. The only thing that would better would be a law straight up forbidding media companies to grow beyond a certain size, and forcefully breaking the firms back down to that […]

Three’s the charm?

Not gonna lie, I think I might fall asleep before this debate starts. I get up at 5 am so 9pm is pushing bedtime for me. Maybe I’ll take a nap. Don’t let that stop you from watching it and commenting.

Reports are that Roger Ailes gave up his part-time job coaching Donald because he couldn’t focus. I don’t know whether they’re trying to lower expections again – as if they could go any lower.

The most amusing part of this debate is the lengths that The Donald will go to invite guests that he thinks are going to make Hillary uncomfortable like a newly discovered ‘victim’ of Bill’s attentions or his alleged love child.

It’s almost as if Donald and his antebellum retinue simply can’t wrap their heads around a self-actualized woman who is beating their asses and threatening to bring extinction on their party. Can a woman with that much experience, confidence and momentum really ignore the feckless attempts at yumiliation Donald and his boys are planning? Um, yeah.

Duh!

That’s why the first female president was always going to be like Hillary. It had to be her. She’s been tempered by fire. She had to be an overachiever. She had to be doggedly determined. She has to be one of the few people who “knows herself” and isn’t trying to be anything else. She’s not a reality TV star. She’s not playing games or asking for a break because she’s female.

She is simply who she is. Take it or leave it. Looks like the country is going to take it.

Ok, I’m going to take a snooze now. Be back in 45.
