Conservatives are gonna ride this shooting for a decade plus...

Seriously, fuck this shooter. If he hated em so much why give them the greatest political gift they could imagine.

The only line that matters any more is legality...

Norms are out...

Precedent is out...

Public pressure is out...

So anyone who thinks that Mueller is safe is not paying attention.

We are vulnerable because of our norms...

The biggest thing I've learned in the last year or so is how many things we take for granted and assume they are part of the law but are really just social norms.

Taxes, firings etc.. Etc...

Is it possible to codify these in the future or do we have to assume that anything that isn't explicitly illegal is fair game?

Should the DCCC share it's post-mortem report?

After nearly five months, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.) will present his investigative report to lawmakers during a members-only gathering at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee headquarters Thursday night.

But members are not allowed to have copies of the report and may view it only under the watchful eyes of DCCC staff.

Some Democratic lawmakers and staffers think the cloak-and-dagger secrecy is overblown and actually makes the findings look worse than they are. But the DCCC is sticking by its strategy.

“Like any healthy organization, the DCCC always works to evolve and grow after each election cycle, and we were happy to have Congressman Maloney as part of that effort this year,” spokeswoman Meredith Kelly said.

Is the Gorsuch block a calculated risk?

In addition to answering the needs of the base but with full knowledge that Gorsuch will go through in any case.

Rules get changed and now you only need a majority (51).

Do you believe that the party leadership is banking on the fact that they will take control of either the Senate or House in 2018 and block any further appointments?

It's a calculated risk because if they don't gain either one then the next nominee can be even more to the right than this one.
