    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Anybody you’ve ever heard of (and some that you haven’t) is running for president.

    2. Shutdown update, day 6000: No news. Shutdown continues. Send park janitors...or something.

    3. GOP finally draws soft line in the sand with Steve King, so they do eventually semi-censure white nationalism. Just takes 16 years to get their story straight.

    4. Trump is a foreign agent. Deal with it.

    5. If anybody’s selling Iran-bombing excuses or plans, John Bolton is in the market.

    6. You could be picketing right now.
