Hirono just smacked Barr real good!

Leahy and Feinstein are getting old.

Leahy should be doing a much better job imo.

Ready to go!

Steve Cohen


Phil Mudd on Cuomo said Barr leaked Mueller's letter.

He wanted to get it out there before he went in front of Congress because he knew it was coming out anyway.

Makes sense

Is Barr testimony open tomorrow? How about Thur? TIA

Mayor Pete just released his tax returns from the last 10 years

Read through Mayor Pete’s tax returns here: www.peteforamerica.com/tax-returns


As you can see, Pete’s not a millionaire. He’s not funding this campaign through personal wealth, corporate PACs, or D.C. lobbyists. He’s running this campaign the same way he’s run his life -- by being fair and decent.

Pete is counting on folks like you to help fund this campaign. If you believe in his message and his vision for the future, donate here:


'I Want Him on Everything': Meet the Woman Behind the Buttigieg Media Frenzy

Axelrod told Buttigieg about Smith, and O’Malley told Smith about this young mayor from South Bend. She figured that Buttigieg’s sexuality and impossible-to-pronounce last name rendered him dead on arrival, but started researching the 35-year-old Indiana mayor and promptly fell down an eight-hour Google rabbithole. She became obsessed with the idea of working for him, then became further obsessed when she actually met him, and developed the notion that once people got to meet him they would start to like him....

“Lis has absolutely no fear,” said Jeff Smith, a former Missouri lawmaker who dated Smith for four years and considers her one of his closest friends. “There is nothing too big for her. She doesn’t give a fuck. She is the most competitive person I have ever known.”...

“Politics has a bias toward the status quo,” she says. “People get stuck in a rut because something worked last cycle, and so they think it will work this cycle and it doesn’t. You have to know the social media ecosystem, how people are sharing and consuming their news. It’s why in one day we do CBS Sunday Morning, The View, Teen Vogue and the New Yorker. It’s about hustling for opportunities. Pete has no battle scars.


Reader Discretion Advised: Politics ain't beanbag and Smith knows it.

Why no clips of SNL?

I watched Columbus v. Boston last night (double overtime) and was surprised there was nothing posted this morning. I always look forward to seeing them on the front page of DU. Was it rerun?

Democratic hopefuls could learn from Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg

Longtime scholar Dan Nimmo, whose research has contributed to the disciplines of political science, journalism, and communication, was one of the first to define and analyze the various audiences to whom political candidates might address themselves. These audiences ranged from true believers (the base who must be motivated to work for the campaign), to those open to persuasion (voters who may not have made up their minds and/or don’t follow the campaign closely), to those who are weakly supportive and must be motivated to vote, to those firmly committed to the opposition candidate and who are beyond persuasive reach.

For Nimmo, the key question faced by all candidates is: Strategically, to which audiences do you want to allocate a finite amount of money and devote limited rhetorical resources?

What has become clear since Donald Trump became President is that politicians seem more inclined than ever to communicate primarily to their own tribe; there is a reticence to target the opposition’s audience.

Two notable exceptions to this trend are Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. To be clear, I am not endorsing or recommending either as the choice of the Democrats for President of the United States. I have not made up my mind about who to support — and won’t until more is known about each candidate.
