The Brutalism of Ted Cruz


Ann Arbor artist paints portrait of Gov. Snyder using lead-based paint

The governor looks pale. Worried. Sickly, even.

Michael Dykehouse presented Rick Snyder that way because that’s how he sees him, mired in the toxic quicksand of the Flint water crisis.

Dykehouse is low-key by nature, not one to shout at Snyder on the streets of their shared home town of Ann Arbor or even to lift a picket sign. Instead, he made his point with a portrait ...

Painted with lead.

“I didn’t want to bang people over the head with it,” says Dykehouse, 41. But he has painted politicians before, and the lead-infused Cremnitz White from Old Holland Classic Oil Colours is “part of my vocabulary as an artist.”


Luckovich Does 9/11

Heh Heh Heh

My condolences to the Koch Brothers on their loss.


REICH: Announces "The Death Of The Republican Party-It Has Been Replaced By Warring Tribes"

I’m writing to you today to announce the death of the Republican Party. It is no longer a living, vital, animate organization.

It died in 2016. RIP.

It has been replaced by warring tribes...


And white working-class Trumpoids who love Donald. and are becoming convinced the greatest threats to their wellbeing are Muslims, blacks, and Mexicans.

Each of these tribes has its own separate political organization, its own distinct sources of campaign funding, its own unique ideology – and its own candidate.

What’s left is a lifeless shell called the Republican Party. But the Grand Old Party inside the shell is no more.

I, for one, regret its passing. Our nation needs political parties to connect up different groups of Americans, sift through prospective candidates, deliberate over priorities, identify common principles, and forge a platform.


White House Says Obama Will Skip Scalia's Funeral

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday that President Barack Obama doesn't plan to attend the funeral for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Earnest said Obama and his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, would "pay their respects" to Justice Scalia on Friday at the Supreme Court as he lies in repose. He said Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill planned to attend the funeral on Saturday.

"The President obviously believes it's important for the institution of the presidency to pay his respects to somebody who dedicated three decades of his life to the institution of the Supreme Court," Earnest said.

Scalia died Saturday at age 79 while on a hunting trip in Texas.


seems fitting to me:



That time an extended vacancy led Antonin Scalia to suggest a 60-day limit on confirmation process
