    • How to Stop Russian Election Interference
      Let us take as a given that Russia interfered in the last US election (though many of the accusations are unconvincing, some appear to be be true).

Tweet du Jour

Yes, that Jim Carrey

It looks a lot like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Ummm, I think it is. Anyone want to speculate on HER personality type?

FiveThirtyEight podcast speculates about what happens if Trump fires Mueller. Summary: it would be a big deal, moving some reluctant Trump voters to jump ship, and tanking his poll numbers. Republicans in Congress don’t want to protect him now but probably would if Trump fires Mueller (I think this is optimistic but, hey, they’re the data people). If Trump is going to do it, he’d better do it soon so that the fury will dissipate by November. It will probably be good for Democrats like Claire McCaskill who are running in redder states.

If he were going to do it, when would it happen? Best guess, after 6:00pm on Friday or on a Tuesday. If I were Trump, I’d do it on Friday this week because the #Marchforourlives March in Washington and cities around the country is happening this Saturday. It gives him cover to do what he wants and the fury over Mueller’s firing will be conflated with the fury over the NRA.

So, I invite you, oh best beloveds, to intellectually masturbate on Mueller’s firing. It seems like a ‘when’ and not ‘if’ scenario now.
