For the last 164 years, the Marines have been led by a Senate-confirmed commandant. As Gen. Berger retires, that will change today, thanks entirely to one person.

To be sure, some of the evidence of a so-called brain drain from Florida higher education is anecdotal, but it’s nevertheless difficult to dismiss out of hand.

"In 1980, the average time between billion-dollar disasters was 82 days. From 2018-22, the average time between these most extreme events, even controlled for inflation, was just 18 days."

How is now any different than past times we've heard former Trump chief-of-staff John Kelly disparage his former boss?

This time, according to the New York Times, he was under oath:

Anyone who paid attention knows exactly who provoked the January 6 riot, and how. But in case you were wondering, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington has counted 174 January 6 defendants who said they were responding to calls by Donald Trump.

"The misconduct here sadly transcends all his past accomplishments"

Rudy Giuliani has officially spent any political good will he had left in his life and will likely end up professionally shattered by the time this is done.

A judge is forcing Donald Trump to sit for yet another deposition in yet another lawsuit. Since by definition these depositions require Trump to speak out loud, they never go well for him.

Humiliating himself in front of the whole country with fake historical quotes is no obstacle to Josh Hawley continuing his Christian nationalist cherry-picking.

The bad news for him is that the the Constitution is a secular document that created a secular government. Period. Full stop.

As the man who raped and impregnated a 10-year-old girl is sentenced to prison, a tangential question lingers:
Will we hear from the conservatives who told the public last year that the crime had not actually happened?

65% of the guns confiscated in Baltimore came from out-of-state. That's a pretty frustrating fact when you're trying to reduce gun violence in your own state.

"Doughty whined in his lengthy ruling that much of the offending content was “right-wing or conservative political views.” But U.S. officials didn’t target conservative information; it challenged false information.

It’s not reality’s fault that the right keeps pushing nonsense."
