Francisco Franco is still in Madrid waiting for his COVID shot, but previous guy seems full of the usual disinformation.

Rep. Katie Porter did not mince her words as she demanded that child care & family leave are justifiably considered and treated as infrastructure. As she started speaking, she had the most composed and cute sneeze I’ve seen on cable TV. Yes, I know, fortuitous, but it was so “Katie...

David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler thought they had a fig leaf all ready to go—one that would help them pretend they desperately want to deliver COVID relief to their fellow Georgians. Yeah, thanks to time-honored Republican tightwaddery, it was a mere $600. But, hey, that was more than enough for Perdue...

Still waiting for those GOP senators who voted against impeachment to say something, something.

It strikes me as curious as to why the Black Lives Matter slogan is such an irritant to a large number of conservatives. It seems a simple premise, include us in your view of the sanctity of life. When  Donald Trump bellows “America First” does that mean that Europe, Asia,...

Trump needs/wants the big crowds, because he doesn’t care about the chaos of infection spread, especially if he will appear to be in a downward spiral approaching November Third.

Greg Sargent demonstrates that even as Trump admitted to shaking down Ukraine, documents need to be doctored to prove something, something. Propaganda is being marshaled against actual fact. President Trump is now openly calling on his...
