Well, Since You Asked Me: The Rise Of Trumpvangelicals (William Barber, II/Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove)

Key Take-Aways:  Rev. Barber is a gifted speaker. His Moral Mondays are legendary, if you’re not familiar with them, please become so. And the speech he gave at the 2016 Democratic National Convention will be studied for years. This is a very nuanced and layered piece. It’s also dealing with a subject that needs to be discussed. It is past time we have a COME TO JESUS MEETING with White Evangelicals. Something is rotten amongst their ranks and needs to be rooted out for what it is.

And I love how he ALWAYS refers to JESUS as a brown-skinned Palestinian Jew. As we say in the community, show me where he lying!

Well, Since You Asked Me: Mueller Has His Man (Renato Mariotti)

Key Take-Away:  Renato lays out the case he believes Mueller has. And this is without all the facts that Mueller has. He’s simply using what’s in the public arena, and even that is quite damning. I’d also add that it’s obvious that Mueller felt compelled to move on this piece now to parry any additional attempts The IDIOT planned to make with respect to firing him. We also now have greater clarity into why allies of The IDIOT have been in a frenzy the last month or so. Should be a fun February.

Well, Since You Asked Me: Soul Of A Nation (Charles Blow)

Key Take-Away:  There is not much I disagree with Charles on and this column is no exception. He truly is one of the Shining Stars from this Shitshow. And if you’re not following him, you should.

Blow touches on something that every Person of Color knows to be true. If this mess or a hint of any of this mess had occurred while 44 was either contemplating, running or serving as POTUS, I have little doubt that he would have been removed from office. Possibly forcibly at that. 

The degrading that The IDIOT has inflicted on the Office and by extension the United States will take years to undo. Domestically and Internationally. I suspect that as soon as he’s removed, and a sensible Congress is elected, we’ll see some changes in who can run and what we must know about them, at a minimum.

In the meantime, we all sit back and wait on Mueller to do his job. And try without much success not to look too much at our watch.

Well, Since You Asked Me: Bill Kristol Unplugged (John Harwood)

Key Take-Away:  I’ve become a huge fan of this Bill Kristol. I find very little daylight between his views expressed here and what I would call Centrist Democrats. And I don’t believe that’s a bad thing at all. We simply have to have a Governing body and typically that has fallen to the Center of Both Parties to do. What we’re in right now, is NOT that. Will be interesting to see what becomes of folk like Kristol. Typically, the form very powerful coalitions with like-minded folk to drive policy. And for the record, anytime a man admits, on the record, that he might have been wrong, that’s evolution IMO.

Well, Since You Asked Me: The Hate That Is Revealing Obama’s Greatness (Jonathan Chait)

Key Take-Away:  It was widely expected that the more distance Obama got from his time in office, we’d have a greater appreciation for what he accomplished. We underestimated the speed which this would occur. Undoubtedly, it’s aided by the sheer dislike and incompetence of The IDIOT, but the fact remains, over time Obama will be judged as a very, very good POTUS. And fortunately the more we see of The IDIOT and his scandals, the more favorable Obama becomes.
