I’ve seen roller coaster accidents that were easier to follow—and less unnerving—than that gory mess Trump counsel Bruce Castor presented earlier today.

Apparently Trump leaked the Raffensperger audio to WaPo — how clueless is that, even if the NY Times is reporting that it was taped and released by the GA SOS. Most of the call repeats his contrived logic and numbers ad nauseam, as if to flood the transcript with his disinformation stream. Trump is so delusional...

I’ve read lots of notably vague “battle plans” and delaying tactics for Democrats to employ against Republicans’ plans to confirm a replacement justice for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  To be frank, the talk is largely masturbatory because the Republicans have the necessary votes.  There is one immediate hope: a disqualifying scandal could...
