Another excellent one from Max Boot:

I’ve found Evan McMullin’s Stand Up Republic newsletter to be a an excellent source for a center-right perspective.

Excellent op-ed for the Editorial board at the NYT on the 20 week abortion ban that is coming up for a vote in the Senate this week. I also recommended clicking through all the links in this article and doing a bit of a deep dive into the subject.

Adam Schiff, typically measured and even handed, went from setting off a flair to full blow fireworks in a Washington Post Op-Ed regarding the Nunes memo.

I don’t typically agree with Joe Walsh, but when I do it usually involves Russia.

This comment on the WaPo article pretty much summed up the whole article.

A day in the life of a White House Correspondent who ends up watching the State of the Union with Steve Bannon.

The Time’s Up movement against sexual abuse and harassment now has Bannon’s full attention, too. “The top seven stories today are all guys getting blown up,” he says. “And these are not small guys.” He’s a connoisseur of anger, and in women’s anger about sexual harassment he senses a prelude to their anger about a lot more. “I think it’s going to unfold like the Tea Party, only bigger,” he says. “It’s not Me Too. It’s not just sexual harassment. It’s an anti-patriarchy movement. Time’s up on 10,000 years of recorded history. This is coming. This is real.”

I agree Steve and your time is definitely up.

I was going to share this but I wasn’t sure!

Also, great complementary listening to this article (which I actually heard before the Bloomberg piece came out, I probably wouldn’t have read the article if I hadn’t heard it) is Larry Wilmore’s podcast interview with Michael Lewis. It’s quite interesting.

(Side note: more and more we learn about Bannon…the more confirmation that Joshua Green’s book, Devil’s Bargain is spot on.)

Lovett’s rants are fucking everything I’m mad about but can’t properly articulate! I can’t wait for PSA to come to Seattle, I went to LIOL a couple weeks ago, he had on my dream panel, Ijeoma Oluo, Lindy West, and Akilah Hughes. Even my normally super shy partner was yelling and hissing with the crowd.
