    Then the question becomes why did the Democrats not invest the time and litigation necessary to compel some insider testimony? Why the need for speed above all?

    UK Election

    So now it looks like the Conservatives have scored their most decisive victory since the days of the Iron Lady, making it likely that Brexit will finally happen. The SNP also gained seats. Labour...

    I think that is something of an oversimplification.

    Religious fanaticism in its purest form is relatively rare. Mostly it’s people using religion to justify or obscure their motivations to grab...

    Isn’t every form of bigotry just a matter of believing your own false impressions? Any bigot will tell you he’s got the evidence to back up his claims, when he’s really just curating his personal...

    Perhaps only someone with your clarity of mind can detect the difference. I simply see two cases of generalizing from the violent actions of a tiny minority to condemn an entire group.

    I see the White House is pushing for a speedy Senate trial. I also see that the two articles are focused on the Ukraine rather than the Mueller stuff.

    In related news, it looks like the DOJ IG...

    If it’s such a no-brainer, why aren’t any of the Democratic candidates making that argument? Why is Warren, for instance, squirming on the hook of M4A to the extent she is?
