Nancy Pelosi. Chuck Schumer. The Clintons. The Kennedys. The faithful leaders we have known so long. We thank you for your service. Now get out.
Surely... surely... this will be the time when the Republicans draw the line.
Here is who ultimately wields power in our political system: Rich people. And here is what they care about above all else: Tax cuts. Politics is an investment that pays off. The proof is in the numbers.
Do not despair, Americans—the Republicans systematically tearing down our civil rights and social safety net will surely be vulnerable once they have achieved every last one of their stated goals.
Wow—yesterday was bad, politically speaking. In fact, the past year and a half has been bad, politically speaking. But as we all despair, it is very important to take a step back and remember: this could all get much, much worse.
Do you think that being asked to leave a restaurant, or having your meal interrupted, or being called by the public is bad? My fascism-enabling friends, this is only the beginning.
What happens when you’re a House or Senate or White House aide who helped ram through a disastrous tax law that radically redistributes wealth to the already obscenely wealthy? You get a promotion!
Today, Politico’s DC-famous newsletter Playbook went off, y’all. It dropped some major truth bombs. It did NOT hold back.
The cable channel FX announced today that it is launching a weekly documentary series focusing on the inner workings of the New York Times.

The inequality and homelessness is staggering and it’s very segregated, just like most big American cities. And, of course, the government is the single biggest employer, with entire…
Let us very briefly address the wrong argument that “Bias against conservatives works like any other prejudice.”

Starting this year, America’s public companies are required to tell you how much the CEO earns as compared to the median worker. The distress surrounding this disclosure of basic facts is odd. After all, we’re all valuable team members in this company, right?
Isn’t living in Washington, D.C. nice? It’s got lovely architecture, beautiful parks, several Trader Joe’s, and so many terribly interesting people, who contribute so much to society.
