5:10 Knot as hard as it looked
Potential action alert: "Expecting Barr to miss the (4/2) deadline (to satisfy Nadler's subpoena), advocacy groups—including MoveOn, Common Cause, Public Citizen, and Stand Up America—are planning demonstrations throughout the country to demand that all of Mueller’s findings be made public."

New Randy Rainbow!

MSNBC - I told you Orange Judas missed the part of the memo that said the report DID NOT EXONERATE him. Unfortunately, someone must have told him what that meant.

Hill - D'oh! He already GAVE him time. He gave him till April 2. See the action alert above in this comment.

WaPo - Of course, whatever the rules are at any given moment, Democrats will follow them and Republicans won't. So it does make sense to get the rules to be as foolproof as possible. I agree they are good ideas, with the possible exception of the term limits for the Supremes. I've never seen term limits work in the Democrats' favor yet.

Cartoon - Yes. Sigh.

MSNBC: Word of the day today, is subpoenas!! Can't believe the blatant disregard and disrespect to not showing/handing over the report.

Hill: SAA.

WP: I think having an open dialog is important, so that Dems see what's on the table, and where to go from here. We have some very good candidates, and I wish them all the best.

Cartoon: Such a kind, wonderful man, and a moving speaker.

*Joanne, RR is a phenom in his own right. Love him, and oh! his songs!!! His mama must be proud. I would be!!

Sorry to read about Wendy, my deepest sympathies/condolences to her and her family. Hope that you have a good rest of your day, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

The Hill: A good first step, but we need to keep up the momentum. The general public has the right to see the entirety of the Mueller report, unedited and uncensored. Then we can decide what - if anything - in it we can use against the Cheat-oh.

WP: It's good to see variety in the choice for the Democratic 2020 Presidential nominee, but too many rings around Rosie will never get Rosie a ring. We need to weed out the centrists and corporate Democ-RATS, and put our support behind a genuine Progressive.

MSNBC: Drumphy changes his mind (he has a mind?) whenever the mood strikes him, or...when he goes into defense-of-lies mode!  Yes, i expect that TC, your spin is the accurate one.
Hill: The committee may need to grab Barr by the cujones!
WaPo: These all seem like good ideas, to me.  I just hope the Dems can avoid fighting over their particular favorites, and, thus, not splinter the demos.
'Toon: What a loss!

MSNBC: What a flipping idiot.States he wants us to see it one time and now he's asking why? Oranges?? Must be thinking of the the jumpers colors they wear in prison
Hill: Hope they slap them with multiple subpoenas. Sick of them getting around doing what he/they are asked for, just like his taxes, he still hasn't released them either.
WaPo: Sounds good to me. I just wish they would stop talking about doing these things and get them taken care of. Otherwise they tend to be like tRump and drift off onto another matters and never get things done.
The Democrats need to be marching forward full speed and get things back on some sort of track again in a positive direction.
Cartoon: We always lose the good ones, but they will always be remembered.
Give my condolences to Wendy and her family. They will be in my prayers.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

4:16 Up at 4 AM and a six-hour trip to pick up hubby behind me, I don’t know why I even bothered.

MSNBC: Before Democrats in Congress get their hands on the full, unredacted report, Drumpf will have flip-flopped at least half a dozen more times. Does anyone really expect a change in strategy from a man who can’t discern between oranges and origins?

TH: Good, the subpoena got through. But it would have been better if House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler would have set a deadline for issuing it. Get it over with, the hardest battle over the contents of the report is yet to be fought.

WP: Fundamental changes to the American political system are good talking points, but put hot issues such as healthcare and education first, otherwise the candidates will lose touch with their Democratic base. Yes, the political system is rotten to the core, but unless Democrats win the 2020 election, those talking points will never be more than that: talking points. Find a topic relevant to the daily lives of your voters to differentiate yourself from the rest, presidential wannabe.

Cartoon: There should have been many more.

So sorry about another death in your family, Wendy. You are in my thoughts.

Appreciate the new Randy Rainbow, Joanne. DeVos is the easiest mark in a corrupt family - sister to Eric “Blackwater” Prince who was helping Kushner set up backchannels to Russia, heir to Amway pyramid scheme fortune, beneficiary of charter school kickbacks...

It won’t matter what Dems propose to take back our democracy if McTurtle rams through as many incompetent ideologue judges as he can who will rule against progress. He is one dangerous swamp creature that needs eradicating.

Deepest condolences to Wendy.

3:51. MSNBC: Agent Orange changes his mind like most people change socks. He never read the report, just got a very brief, second hand report from one of his minions.

TH: Congress should be given the entire, unredacted report. Why Barr thinks his people should see it and not Congress is beyond me unless he really thinks he can protect AO.

WP: All of these are great ideas. Our country was never expected to remain stagnant, but we need to look farther out than tomorrow, next week, or even two years from now.

My condolences to Wendy and her family.

Thanks for the post, TomCat.
