Awful news. Mark was one of the smartest, funniest, most independent policy thinkers I've known. He did so much to move this country towards saner drug and crime policies. And he was so generous with his time and knowledge.

"When subjects were told that high African American voter turnout is the key to Democratic victory in 2020, they were three times more likely to say that a black candidate had the best chance of beating Trump." Views on electability depend on priming:

"It is even possible that Mr. Trump could win while losing the national vote by as much as five percentage points."

The Trump Show you see: Racist tweets, demagogic chants at rallies. What you don’t see: Regulatory enforcement so lax white-collar defense firms worry they’ll lose clients, air pollution rising for the first time in years.

New pledge from Harris: No "middle class tax hike" to finance M4A. That doesn't add up. This is why Biden v Bernie fight is the big one on health care. There's only one top tier candidate eager to defend single-payer on its actual merits right now.

The thing that really scares me about Trump Era politics is not exactly Trump, it’s the idea that history is going to repeat but with Trump as the farce version and the next guy as the tragedy version.

This is such an important point: thinking about Trump’s racist statements or those of others as being “strategy” does not make them not racist. And deeming them to be "gut-level political savvy” is basically like arguing that racism 1.) works and 2.) is thus good because it works

In which George Will and I argue about the founders’ intent, whether majority rule is good, and how much power judges should have. Pay attention to his argument for a much more activist judiciary. It’ll be conservative CW in a few years.

The gaslighting is always so exhausting. We all know what the President did and who he is. Everyone. On all sides. We all get it. Just a question of whether you find it acceptable or not.

Trump is animated by white identity politics, not conservatism. That’s the subtext of his — and Fox News’s — obsession with “the Squad”:

I thought today we were pretending to believe that if you don’t think America is currently great you should just move back to whichever country I lazily assume you come from in the first place?

This is one thing I keep thinking about with immigrant detention centers: Many of the awful things happening in these detention centers also happen regularly in US prisons.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "Weak minds and leaders challenge loyalty to our country in order to avoid challenging and debating the policy. This president does not know how to make the argument that Americans do not deserve health care. He does not know how to defend his policies."

Every so often I have to reconfirm I didn't imagine this, but the president demanding people quit complaining or leave once said he hated the concept of American exceptionalism because it makes Vladimir Putin feel bad

Republicans who would rather that your party not be lost to the white nationalists forever but who aren't sure you can bring yourself to vote Democratic in the fall: is standing by and ready to take your calls and primary endorsements.

Rep. Pressley argues Trump's comments distract from the Democratic agenda, and the press shouldn't take the bait. Rep. Omar argues that Trump's comments demand impeachment. It gets flattened in talk of "the Squad," but the political approaches here are allied but different.
