It's weird how not just press but white house and GOP types are talking about whether Cohen will flip on Trump, but nobody seriously considers the possibility that he might not have any incriminating information to give up.
Popehat's great, yeah. I think the twitter account is just the one guy (Ken White), though the blog has a couple of other contributors.
He had an article the other day on why the raid on Trump's lawyer's office is a big deal:
This was the postest-modernest thing I've ever read, or heard of someone having read, but I feel like I understand the alt-right a little better for having read it.
There are topics that are dangerous to discuss honestly. If someone throws caution to the winds and does so, he is being politically incorrect

Back on topic (:P) I wake up to twitter this morning to learn that Lou Dobbs is asking why US marshals haven't taken top DoJ officials into custody.
Is it normal for the fringe of a party to agitate for coup-like stuff even as their party control…
I've told you some of the ways that I evaluate bias. If you don't believe I can do what I say I can do, that's your problem, not mine.

"That news I disagree with is bad because it is biased, and this news I agree with is biased, which is good", said the sane person.
He's married to an American (isn't he?). How did that not keep him in the country? Don't you get to be an American if you marry one?
