Elections 2018. the elections keep on

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

32% favorable rating among republicans, certainly higher than McConnell and Ryan.

Republicans also correctly understand that in America's zero-sum electoral politics, it's always better to stick to your guns than to grant the other side an inch. That's why even the small fraction of elected Republicans who may be genuinely anti-Trump are still dutifully carrying water for him and obstructing any efforts to hold him accountable. There might be some kind of limiting principal there, but I honestly don't think Russians meddling in our elections to help Republicans, the party openly committed to disenfranchising anyone who doesn't vote for them, is going to do it.

I mean, the majority of Republicans would go along with it for sure, but there's no way that a party reliant on a bunch of old shitheads who grew up during the Cold War wouldn't suffer some attrition from being openly Russia Rules!!!

I'm not sure the relevant time horizon for public opinion here goes back much further than the 2016 election, when "Russia" became a significantly more salient household issue than it had been for a long time.

I also think that a lot of Republicans would look at that chart and think not "wow public opinion among our voters is against us on this" but "ok guys we've got some work to do, let's get X, Y, and Z together to start drafting some talking points and raising money to get that number up."

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party. It doesn’t have to.

Because the policies Ms. Ocasio-Cortez advocates are so far from the mainstream, her election in November would make it harder for Congress to stop fighting and start fixing problems. Thanks to a small percentage of primary votes, all of the people of New York’s 14th Congressional District stand to lose a very effective representative in Washington.

yeah and it's pretty good. DeRay in that Vest is not a great interviewer but he, Brittany Packnett, Sam Sinyangwe, and Clint Smith do a good little news round-up at the beginning that talks about stuff I don't see elsewhere.

The three people most responsible for our current political situation are John McCain, Mitch McConnell and Joe Lieberman
