Open thread - Well, Friday escalated quickly
Slow news day, eh?
Mike "Misha" Flynn agreed a plea deal with Special Prosecutor Robert S. Mueller III (affectionately known as "Bobby Three Sticks") for lying to the FBI. The White House sees this as a win. Of course, the White House is full of morons. Flynn flipped, and you can expect the investigation to proceed at light speed now.
Meanwhile, in the greatest deliberative body in the world, Senate Republicans are having an awful time getting their tax scam through. As I wrote last night, the GOP attracts the worst elements, people who, once in office, have no idea how to do anything. On paper they hold all the power in Washington. In reality, they're at a loss as to what to do with that power. (The one thing they are doing is filling the courts with troglodytes. But, there are ways for Democrats to get around that once they're back in charge, especially as the appointments were made by what will turn out to be an illegitimate regime.)
Dear Republicans: Winter is coming.
This is your open thread.
