SORT BY Relevancy
Cliff and Digby discuss Trump and the fracturing GOP. Planned Parenthood developments---good news in Texas, but Ohio still a major battleground. The centrist Democrat leadership terrorized by Sanders, and the concomitant rise of the Bloomberg spectre.

Avedon Carol, Cliff Schecter, Culture of Truth, David Dayen, Dave Johnson, David Waldman, digby, Gaius Publius, Isaiah Poole, Joan McCarter, Marcy Wheeler, Sara Robinson, Susie Madrak, Spocko, Stuart Zechman
This week: Is Trump the big winner, did Rubio drive himself over a cliff,did anyone climb out of the pile-up in the establishment lane? Who's left in the clown car going into South Carolina? Scary clown land: unexpected consequences of GOP strategy.
Joan McCarter — Senior Political Writer and regular front page contributor to Daily Kos joins Hillman Award-winning blogger Digby — American political writer and founder of the liberal blog Hullabaloo and a daily columnist for Salon.
Each week we toss around the recent hijinks and hilarity — although not always — of the GOP primary process; exploring the explicable and inexplicable fortunes of the establishment and insurgent factions and elements of the GOP. Follow @digby56 @joanmccarter
Jay Ackroyd and Digby discuss (and mock) the GOP presidential hopefuls. This week, JEB! setting off the controversy of who was president on 9/11/2001. The mysterious story of the soon to be vacant House Speakership--no sign of life, and, apparently no interest in the traditional media. Carson takes a few weeks off. Citizens' United and clustered winter take all primaries give the republican establishment everything they wished for. [Not.]
Finally, nice to have a policy discussion on the reality based side.
Commentary from digby and Gaius Publius. This week: Rachel Maddow and the Democratic forum in South Carolina; climate change developments: Keystone and ExxonMobil and RICO; the increasingly bizarre Ben Carson. Jay Ackroyd moderates. Follow @digby54 @gaius_publius @JayAckroyd

Digby and Jay discuss the GOP presidential candidates. Clown Car update featuring Digby. The GOP debate and the fallout is on the table. Political satire from Culture of Truth. Read igby at Salon http://www.salon.com/writer/heather_digby_parton/
Cliff Schecter and Digby discuss the news of the week, and this weeks political developments. GOP Still in disarray. Boehner, Planned Parenthood and Carly Fiorina's Big Lie and developments in gun regulation and the abuse of tasers.
Domestic security is getting pretty complicated, what with miliarized police operations, cameras documenting events that were previously unaccessible, "non-lethal" weapons that aren't really, and a really extensive internal security system. Marcy Wheeler and digby discuss these issues. Marcy summarizes the current understanding of who and how American citizens are being surveilled. Digby has been on the taser front from the beginning.
Crime rates are way down. Incarceration rates are an embarrassment, pointlessly ruining the lives of millions of Americans. Police departments are more diverse, especially in urban centers. A consensus against the drug war seems to be growing--but the Feds and the local asset seizure programs don't want to acknowledge that consensus.
Digby and Joan McCarter discuss the bind centrist Democrats, like Chris Van Hollen, have put themselves in by putting themselves on record in opposition to Social Security, how this helps Donna Edwards, and how we can help Edwards in her primary race. Joan provides a quick precis on the contest for Senate minority leader in the aftermath of Harry Reid's announcement not to run in 2016.
Reproductive justice in danger and how this year's version of the doc fix is being hijacked by the House Tea Party caucus.
Israel's apparent 51st state status.
