Michelle Drummond

Education is absolutely NOT largely funded by the federal government. In most states it's less than 10% of the total education budget.

re ep 344: A big point the panel missed is that the primary tool (righteous anger) employed by Kavenaugh and the Republicans in the hesring is precisely what Dr. Blasey-Ford was forbidden by the American political and cultural context. When a woman lets her outrage show she is dismissed as hysterical (look up the etymology) and emotional. Then the Rs perversely coupled that to a narrative about white male victimization. Think about the bitter irony of that.

Gorsuch got through easier because he was a conservative replacing a conservative. He wasn't the swing vote Kavanaugh woud be.

Mark E. Stokes I think that partly explains it, but not entirely... I don't think you can write off Ks problems as entirely not related to who he is.

"Boys will be Boys" You really think that would be going over better than things are now. That is not allowed in the #MeToo era. Al Fraken was just being funny pretending to grab the woman in the picture and he's a comedian.

Wait... if the Reps' chance of keeping the House is 1 in 6, how is their chance of keeping both houses 1 in 5 (greater than that)?

This story has become more intriguing. I think Trump's behind the whole thing.

I am completely amazed that not one of you are looking into the possibility that the Russian Lawyer was a plant from the Hillary Camp and State Department to entrap the Trump Campaign.

Brandon Allen Ummm old subject, but the heads of the intelligence community are not the entire intelligence community. Many of these members are currently under indictment and being questioned by the DOJ. The Mueller report is going to be so disappointing for you.

re: "Primary Season Begins" and Nate's comments that Trump doesn't get enough credit in the media for his accomplishments in Korea. It really remains to be seen weather they're accomplishments at all. the meeting hasn't taken place. there's a lot of concern that by agreeing to meet before there's a plan in place he's already burned some bridges. so far his main accomplishment is has been to throw convention aside. does he have anything concrete to show for it? at this point it just looks risky, not like concrete accomplishments. so how should the press be reporting it? probably by acknowledging that if the risk pays off it's amazing, but we don't know yet, in part because he doesn't have the structure in place to either anticipate what's happening or to let us know what's happening in a disciplined manner.
