It is with a heavy heart that I must announce Bill Barr is at it again. chicagotribune.com/columns/john-k…
I particularly like the part where he criticizes liberals for creating a "loss of confidence in the vote," then immediately speculates that Nevada will conjure 100,000 votes for Biden out of thin air.

There's a lot in here to disagree with, but this strikes me as particularly absurd. nationalreview.com/2019/03/electo…
1876 alone disproves this. Fraud and suppression marred the vote in four states, including three Southern ones rocked by white supremacist violence. Tilden led in the popular vote and the electoral vote thanks to it. Hayes needed all four states to win.
This should be when the Electoral College steps in and saves the day, right? Nope. It deadlocks with Tilden one vote shy of victory. Civil unrest appears imminent. President Grant fortifies Washington with federal troops.

The theme of this year’s Super Bowl commercials seems to be existential despair.
The one where the guy gets a dream car during a near-death experience, the one with the dude who’s anxious of everything, the Alexa knockoff bemoaning its lack of a soul...
The family telling a robot child that it can’t follow its dreams and be a CPA...

I can't stress enough how thoroughly disqualifying it was for a sitting federal judge to act Kavanaugh did yesterday.
Two obvious points: He has every right to be outraged at death threats towards his family. He also has every right to defend himself and his actions.
That does not extend to launching angry tirades about "friends of the Clintons" or warning Democratic lawmakers that "what comes around goes around."

The third day of Kavanaugh hearings is underway. Booker is currently telling the committee he'll release some emails that have been marked "committee confidential." (Feel free to mute this thread.)
Cornyn just described Booker's announcement as "outrageous" and compared it to releasing classified information.
Cornyn, to Booker: Running for president is "not an excuse to violate the rules of the committee."

It's day two of the Kavanaugh hearings. I'll be livetweeting in this thread, so please feel free to mute it if necessary.
Today is the Q&A portion. What will senators ask the prospective justice? Some questions from me: newrepublic.com/article/150678…

And from law professors: newrepublic.com/article/151024…
Grassley says each senator will get 30 minutes of time for questions in the first round. There are 21 senators on the committee. It's going to be a long day.

If this is the framing, we should probably reckon with how many avenues for democratic expression and political recourse have dwindled over the last 25 years.

Voting? Gerrymandering is so bad that Dems will need a landslide this fall just to capture a slim majority in the House: npr.org/2018/03/28/597…
