I'm on the same side as Dick Cheney, my world is upside down.

Dick Cheney in India: "no question" Putin "interfered in major ways" in US election. "In some quarters that wld be considered an act of war"

Cheney said Putin had interfered with the U.S. election as part of his worldwide destabilization efforts.

“There’s no question that there was a very serious effort made by Mr. Putin and his government, his organization, to interfere in major ways with our basic fundamental democratic processes,” Cheney said. “In some quarters, that could be considered an act of war.”

Cheney took what appeared to be a shot at President Donald Trump and his Republican congressional allies, who have disputed the intelligence showing Russian efforts to influence the election.

“I would not underestimate the weight that we as Americans assign to Russian attempts to interfere with our process,” Cheney said.


Republicans dont have the votes for the nuclear option. - They know Gorsuch could go down.


Charles P. Pierce: We Are Dealing with Toxic Levels of Smarm - Enough with Neil Gorsuch.

I have a modest proposal for the members of the Republican majority in the United States Senate. I offer it in all Christian love and charity: Shut up about Neil Gorsuch.


Neil Gorsuch was granted the courtesy and respect of private meetings with the senators who would pass on his nomination, including the Democratic ones. Merrick Garland was not.

Neil Gorsuch was granted the courtesy and respect of a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Merrick Garland was not.

Neil Gorsuch will be granted the courtesy and respect of having his name placed in nomination before the full Senate. Merrick Garland never will.

C'mon, boys and girls. You know what you did and you know why you did it and you know that the strategy is only one small step from having worked magnificently. Take quiet pride in that and do what you have to, if you have the stomach for it. But please, for the love of god, stop talking about Neil Gorsuch.


Republicans who opposed the health care bill showed they neither fear nor love the president.

Rick Klein and Shushannah Walshe: “President Trump is coming off of a week where he lost both credibility and control. He also lost something that is harder to define and may be harder to restore: the mystique of power. Since November, even Trump’s harshest critics had to recognize his political talents, which show in two ways: The seemingly unbreakable connection and communications link he has with a loyal block of voters, and the deal-making skills that grew his brand all the way to the presidency. But the Republicans who opposed the health care bill showed they neither fear nor love the president.”

“That turns the question to the consequences: In the Trump playbook, look for a power move – something that goes beyond tweets and executive orders. If we’re ever going to be tired of all the winning, the Trump White House needs some victories as attention turns to tax reform and other big agenda items.”


So Nunes had to rush to the WH last week to tell Trump what he had learned AT THE WHITE HOUSE




Oh My: BREAKING: Breitbart denied Capitol Hill permanent press credentials

On Monday morning, the Standing Committee of the Senate Press Gallery denied Breitbart's request for permanent press credentials for the Hill, stating that they needed "more answers" before considering the right-wing website's request again. The committee discussed a request letter sent to them by Breitbart's Larry Solov late on Thursday said to show White House chief strategist Steve Bannon had severed ties from Breitbart as of November. Beyond the letter, which presented a "Word .doc" masthead of Breitbart, a committee member pointed out that beyond "us trusting Larry" there was no other evidence that Bannon had in fact completely cut himself off from the site he previously ran. The committee expressed frustration that the letter from Solov was sent "late Thursday" when the deadline was Friday morning. Other details and clarification the committee will seek from Breitbart are the fuller explanations of roles of people on the masthead, explanation of any of their roles on other Bannon-related project (Glittering Steel production company, Government Accountability Institute), clarification on news reports that Rebekah Mercer is involved in Breitbart editorial decisions, and more information on the location of Breitbart's office.
