Poor Fox News

More litigation against Fox News, with racial discrimination joining sexual harassment on their list of offenses. Is anybody surprised? And if so, why?

Obviously ~

The media made it possible for Cornholio to become the so-called precedent (sic), and now they have one final opportunity to atone and make it up to America. Maybe they'll take advantage of it.

Added 2:30 PM Monday 24 April: Cornholio likes the idea of shutting down the federal government. First, he's pretty sure it'll put the brakes on those investigations of his Russian connection. Even better is MORE FREE TIME FOR GOLF! Hooray for a shutdown!

Added 7:10 PM Monday 24 April: It's comforting to know 73 percent of the people agree with me that an independent investigation of Cornholio is definitely in order.

The mook never understood that actually being a precedent (sic) is much more complicated than pretending to be a hotshot executive on a TV reality show.

Predictably unpredictable

New Republic on how the chaos created by the so-called precedent (sic) may produce lasting damage. The American system depends on some degree of certainty, and we aren't getting that.

The sad part is that it would only take a few Republicans in the Senate and a handful more in the House to put the brakes on this runaway train and restore at least a semblance of order. So far, not enough of them have shown the courage necessary to tackle the problem.

Washington Monthly on the reality check. The so-called precedent (sic) is now facing the same sort of obstacles that Barack Obama had to confront. If we're fortunate, the obstacles will be even more formidable for the bastard after the 2018 midterm election.

Wasteful government spending

The amount of money American taxpayers are spending to keep Fat Daddy in office is starting to add up. We need to figure out how to force him to reimburse us. While we're at it, we should require all these billionaires to pay for their own security. They can afford it.

Added 7:22 PM Saturday 15 April: Politicus USA reports on proposed legislation this country really really needs.

Must Repeal Obamacare? Why?

Republicans in Congress will not be punished by voters for failing to repeal the ACA. If Washington Monthly can explain why that's true, it's fair to say that GOP politicians also understand why. It's more probable that punishment would accompany a successful repeal. But the dog-and-pony show will continue because Fox News needs something to talk about that will sell commercial minutes.

Summer walks in Texas

Judging by the amount of water on driveways and sidewalks and in the street, some Texans seem to think you can grow concrete and asphalt using lawn sprinklers.
