    • The Well Meaning American Oligarchy Are SO Misunderstood
      Just saw a case of the argument that “the people who have been enriching themselves by fucking everyone else for four decades are misunderstood, they’re just following the incentives, and suggesting that the people killing and impoverishing you are bad is polarizing.” Lovely.

Mueller Open Thread

Today, Special Counsel Robert Mueller explains what his report says, because the rest of us don’t have time to read it, and should set the record straight, cutting through the misdirection that AG Bob Barr set up.

If you want to follow along on twitter, I recommend Susan Simpson @TheViewFromLL2, Preet Bharara @PreetBharara and Seth Abramson @SethAbramson.

Seth has a current thread already. He usually summarizes pretty well.

They’re all Never Trumpers so take it with a grain of salt since they are all against the president who never did anything wrong. 🙄

Money, money, money

Jon Stewart got money for 911 responders after having to shame the Senate into it.

His face yesterday? Priceless.

But as Dan Rather and Chris Hayes tell us, spending money is only problematic when Democrats ask for it.

Pretty much.

I guess you could say that Republicans are just following their convictions that spending increases the deficit and they’re for teeny, tiny deficits.

Except then they give massive trillion dollar tax breaks to their friends and corporations and let the rest of us beg for scraps and inconsequential things like social security.

Anyway, the last president to reduce the deficit was, um, Bill Clinton, who was a Democrat.

And what Republican convictions?

Besides the ones that sent Trump campaign officials to jail?
