I got nothing. Trump not tweeting? Possible shakeups at the White House? Oroville looking safe? Typos in government tweets or posters? Foreign governments dumping treasuries? That mean obituary? Slow news day, man. Slow news day.

  1. Mean? Or brutally honest?

  2. Well, sometimes DRJ, the best you can say about someone is that they are gone.

  6. I agree with the principles explained in Patterico’s post.

    In addition, from a practical standpoint, it’s becoming increasingly clear that ObamaCare won’t end until the public forces the GOP to end it, but they don’t want to end it because they fear the consequences. Instead, the GOP wants to avoid all consequences – both now and in the future – by doing things like not enforcing this rule. It’s time to act like adults and deal with the consequences.

  7. Or we can act like scared children and whine that we can do it because they did it first.

  8. I put my comments on the wrong thread. Sorry about that!

    What great obit, kishnevi. I think his daughter definitely got her Dad’s wit and zest.
