Sorry folks, busy day at the bookbarn.

As someone who works with children, I have plenty to say about the Trump Jugend Rally / Boy Scout Jamboree. But today it's the Motion to Proceed to... who knows?

Once Maverick McCain decided to risk death to be in DC to cast a vote to debate Deathcare, the jig was up for this battle. Senate Republicans are lemmings being driven off of a cliff by their own promises. They know repealing Obamacare will open the Senate to Democratic takeover. But the base expects it, and they fear Trump's troglodytes. All the stories that GOP senators weren't concerned about blowback over not sticking a knife in Obamacare were fables. They're hostages to the base, and will slit their own throats to satisfy it.

Hang in, folks. This is going to be a long war.



Like what you read? Chip in, keep us going.
