The new revelations are bad, but not really as bad as what we’ve known all along: They won’t matter.

These photos of Cokie Roberts, Linda Wertheimer and Nina Totenberg four decades apart gave me a lump in my throat. Young women working in journalism today stand on the shoulders of giants. https://www.npr.org/2019/09/17/761597458/the-personification-of-human-decency-nina-totenberg-remembers-cokie-roberts

In this piece, @allahpundit concludes, more or less, “Maybe a bit, but it ultimately won’t matter.” I believe his thinking is pretty spot-on. Not that it’s my view, of course, but that his read of the right and Trump is correct. So, yes, read it.

I fear we’re seeing dry run for next year’s US elections in Israel right now. Bibi breaks election rules, makes phony fraud accusations & spreads racist propaganda—all to protect himself from being prosecuted. Then in close election claims he won the ethnic vote that “matters.”

Quoted@ChemiShalev

Netanyahu extols “amazing achievements” in the face of hostile one-sided media coverage. So much for introspection, accepting responsibility or at least changing his tone.

So. Much. This. 5 minutes per member alternating between parties is not the way to get deep truth from a reluctant witness.

Quoted@thegregwalters

Dem staff lawyer Barry Berke got more out of Lewandowski than House members did during a day of questioning, including an admission that lying to the press is cool with him. Shows why so many outsiders have urged House committees to let dedicated lawyers ask all the questions.

@rickhasen Given the backwards-world we're in, it will probably also be in commercials for him.

Not that I think this will stop cable bookers from bringing on Lewandowski.

Quoted@rickhasen

To all those cable TV bookers who will seek to book Lewandowski in the future: caveat emptor.

This will certainly be in commercials against Lewandowski should he choose to run for Senate.

Quoted@TalKopan

“I have no obligation to be honest to the media,” Lewandowski testifies about what he now admits was a lie on national television.

To what extent will Netanyahu's pre-election crowing about supposed "voter fraud" among Israeli Arab voters affect the acceptance of these results by his supporters? I'm asking because he borrowed a page from American fraudulent fraud squad in claiming massive fraud w/o evidence.

Quoted@Yair_Rosenberg

If the revised exits are right - and we still have no idea if they are - the Arab vote in Israel may have just toppled Bibi. The revision of the exits *against* Netanyahu bucks the trend of them usually being more favorable for him and the right. So there's that.

Quoted@nycsouthpaw

“I have no obligation to be honest with the media because they’re just as dishonest with everybody else,” Lewandowski says when confronted with an MSNBC clip where he says he never got involved with anything to do with AG Sessions.

‘Education of Brett Kavanaugh’ co-author @rpogrebin says she “drafted” the now-deleted ‘NY Times’ tweet that said Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual assault “may seem like harmless fun” — and calls it “a misworded tweet” that was meant “to have the opposite effect.”

Curious how conservative legal minds feel about the White House "directing" a private citizen -- who has never been a White House employee -- not to speak about something.

You dont see this much in the U.S. … @netanyahu in Jerusalem saying voting in Tel Aviv is sky high, and voting in Jerusalem is low. (obvious implication is the left is voting in large number in Tel Aviv, and the right is not voting in Jerusalem)
