As the graphic I'm using for tonight's meme shows, the sales of video games have nothing to do with gun violence. It's a simple compare and contrast exercise. As one traitorous nutball $enate Majority Leader would say, "Case Closed." And, in this case, it actually is....

A group of conservative #NeverTrumpers ran the above ad-- or a 30 second version of it-- in DC (waste of time) and Kentucky (not a waste of time) this week. The ad was produced and paid for by Republicans for the Rule of Law, which calls itself "a group of life-long Republicans dedicated to...

Fox News sent Tucker Carlson away on a little unannounced vacation until the heat dies down on his white nationalist TV show. Most normal people didn't know Fox was running a nightly KKK rally in prime time until the media exploded in a frenzy about Carlson's claim that White...

There are plenty of ways to contribute to Trump's campaign-- directly or indirectly, as well as directly and indirectly. There are also ways-- many ways-- to cover up your contributions. I noticed, for example that there were dozens of individuals (as opposed to companies) who had...

The new Economist/YouGov poll, released yesterday, has more bad news for the GOP. Favorability for congressional Democrats (37%) is 8 points higher than favorability for congressional Republicans (29%). Since only 34% of voters see Trump as honest and trustworthy, he's not going to be...

Trump is clearly an accessory to the massacres at the garlic festival, in El Paso and in Dayton. But there's more to it than just that. At the press gaggle in front of his helicopter yesterday, Trump claimed he "doesn't like any group of hate-- whether it's white supremacy, whether it...
