The buried lede is that the warrant was blocked under the former guy, but Merrick Garland unblocked...

I never thought to hear such snark from someone as genteel as Merrick Garland. And maybe he wasn’t trolling the poster boy of domestic terror and insurrection after all. But, damn, it sure feels like Garland, whose path to the Supreme Court was derailed by a metric fuck-ton of Republican...

What are these assholes even talking about? Now, I knew they’d be pricks about this regardless, but isn’t a little convenient that they’re both on Donald Trump’s SCOTUS nominee short list? First, Wolfman Jack’s colicky vestigial twin: x “We can play that game all day long” — Ted Cruz dismisses...

I’d love to see this for three reasons: 1) I love Barack Obama, and his presence in public life simply makes us better, 2) it would be sweet revenge for the Merrick Garland travesty, and 3) there’s a pretty good chance that, if it happened, Donald Trump would swallow his...

Okay, so they appear to have changed this headline since Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall screen-grabbed it.

Republicans proudly advertised their radical ways during Wednesday's impeachment hearings into Donald Trump, wallowing in conspiracies and embracing debunked claims. The question now: How does the Beltway media cover a party that has aggressively removed itself from reality? How does the news business describe and treat a political party that routinely...

Why? Because he’s the worst (er, second-worst) human being on the planet.

Fuck you, Mitch McConnell. Fuck you in your scurfy chelonian exoskeleton.

So, yeah, Mitch McConnell thinks the Democrats are engaging in mindless obstruction. The Democrats. The Democrats.

Whenever my astonished eyes alight on one of Hugh Hewitt’s sprightly jaunts down the cobblestone courts of Crazy Town, I wonder how The Washington Post chooses its conservative contributors — and whether they could find equally trenchant analyses from, say, a random Reddit user, or the next guy who gets arrested for...

Expecting moral consistency out of Republicans is like trying to wring a human soul out of a Trump, but the hypocrisy over the GOP’s handling of Supreme Court nominees has really gone beyond the pale lately.
