Beto O’Rourke (D. TX) had some harsh words yesterday: x “We are nearing a failed state in Texas. And it has nothing to do with God, or natural disasters. It has everything to do with the leadership and those in the positions of public trust who have failed us,” says...

The Trumpist GOP identifies its allegiances. Nice to see Philip Bump using DKos data. Eleven members of the House Republican caucus took the unusual step Thursday of supporting a Democratic-led effort to punish freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for comments she made before coming to Congress. It was the latest...

If there is a hell, that is where these evangelical leaders belong. They are singularly responsible for the deaths of thousands. Unfortunately, if natural selection was perfectly selective, we could be rid of them. Unfortunately, nature is not a scalpel. Evangelical leaders are a clear and present danger x x YouTube Video...

Not in so many words, but eight world leaders wrote an op-ed in today’s Washington Post calling for any Covid-19 vaccine to be available worldwide: The international community must guarantee equal global access to a covid-19 vaccine [W]e must urgently ensure that vaccines will be distributed according to a set...

Ask Donald Trump and his loyal enablers about his coronavirus response and they’ll tell you how fantastic it’s been. It’s a bizarre stance, and basically the equivalent of BP taking out ads in Mississippi reminding local residents about all the free oil the company gave to the needy. But the...

There’s so much unhingery packed into this CNN story on Trump’s phone calls with foreign leaders that choosing among the outrages is kind of like picking your favorite Egyptian plague. Want a shower of frogs? Fire ‘n’ hailstones? Locusts? They’re all here, and then some. So let’s start with this...

It’s worth reading Anne Applebaum’s Atlantic article “History Will Judge the Complicit”, or does the GOP wish to reveal the truth of conservative principles as oxymoron. “The question now is whether the old American mantras, the appeals to traditions of democracy and the rule of law, still work—or whether they have...

Each year, the G-7 summit is hosted by one of the member countries in rotation. In 2020, it’s the turn of the United States. Trump had always planned to use the summit to boost his re-election chances (and boost his income by hosting it at his Doral property in Florida,...

Stunt for stunt. In the age of Trump the price of revealing the origin of DNA could be set at $130,000 an event. If you had Donald Trump’s DNA, what would you do with it? The idea isn’t as outlandish as it may seem: An anonymous organization called the Earnest Project is...

Right now, Texas is under siege, and there’s not too much our military can do about it. On Jan. 7, Gov. Greg Abbott told the Domestic Terrorism Task Force that the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) measured, over a 48-hour period, a colossal increase of cyberattacks from Iran on...

I would have to search long and hard to find something about Donald Trump that I’m jealous of. Sure, he’s pr*sident of the United States, but frankly I’d rather work at Arby’s than have that job. In the past I would have justified that by saying working at Arby’s requires a lot less...

This is delicious. And, for the record, there’s no malarkey in it: x The world is laughing at President Trump.

Kudos to ThinkProgress for catching this: Native American voting groups have made it their mission over the years to get as many of their members to the polls as possible. That effort has even greater urgency, as North Carolina prepares next week to hold one of its most closely watched...

I watched Flimflam Man Paul Ryan’s CNN town hall last night, and realized that at this late date we still can’t honestly question, and thus confront, Republican leaders on the root problem of Charlottesville and Trump.  Instead, all we get is moronic, weak tea like Paul Ryan and other Republicans condemning...
