“All my life I tried to do all I could so that Ukrainians laughed...Now I will do all I can so that Ukrainians at least do not cry any more.” I wrote about Zelenskyy's fateful mission last year. Free link: https://ca.sports.yahoo.co...

Not a GOP savior: Ron DeSantis seems more like Donald Trump each day in his disregard for rules, laws, norms, constitutions, and even the Bible-based Golden Rule. So much for moving past Trump and the threats he poses. My new Bulwark piece, with disturbing examples from recent days.

On #memorialday , I can't get this rosannecash

. @djrothkopf says good riddance to "slavish deference" to markets and trickle-down, hello to a Biden economy that prioritizes tax fairness, US competitiveness, and policies that benefit the middle class and left-behind. https://www.thedailybeast....

🚨 BREAKING! Rep. Colin Allred, has announced he will challenge Ted Cruz for Senate. Allred was stuck in the Capitol on Jan 6 and blamed Cruz for an attempt to deny the election.

He's no stranger to tough races and his victory over popular GOP Pete Sessions shows he has the potential to win.

RIP Gordon Lightfoot. I've been a fan since high school. I saw him at the venue formerly known as Cobo Hall when I was at U-M, and he was awesome. Highly recommend this documentary about his surprisingly wild and crazy life. https://www.rottentomatoes...

One of the many outrages in Florida, one with terrible consequences for individual lives. Glad it's being put in the glare of the spotlight and I hope somebody with lots of money makes these families whole. Gift link: https://t.co/I1yZ6QLNuF

"Don't fight back, fight forward." Catching up on my Ted Lasso viewing. I love this phrase. I would love it better as "Fight back AND fight forward." I love "Fight Forward" by itself as a political slogan. Also, I love Ted Lasso. So many laughs, so much humanity.

Excellent George Takei questions and @charlotteclymer answers on #Politics , the steeply rising "severity and frequency of attacks on trans people," and what it's like to be #transgender in the public square. Read and learn. https://thinkbigpicture.su...

What struck me from this account of the White House Correspondents Dinner: Biden saying Rupert Murdoch (age 92) "makes me look like Harry Styles" and Arnold calling the press "the allies of the people." Using my 2nd to last gift link of the month for this. You're welcome. https://wapo.st/3Vh4Fiq

My latest at The Bulwark, on the horrors that abortion ban backers like Lindsey Graham overlook. The harrowing cases of 5 women endangered by Texas bans and criminalization reflect our post-Roe reality. https://www.thebulwark.com...

Fascinating, highly relevant and heroic history from Walter Shapiro. He's serious and Dems should be, too: Don’t Make Dianne Feinstein Resign. Just Get Her to the Senate by Any Means Necessary. https://newrepublic.com/ar...

The Tucker Carson firing has been a choose-your-own adventure Rorschach test. This from mmfa's MattGertz is the most comprehensive list of theories I've seen about why Fox did this and why they did it now. https://www.mediamatters.o...

The House GOP is trying to pass Medicaid work requirements that I argued recently are heartless and counterproductive. The White House says millions could lose coverage.

So many mysteries after Tucker Carlson exit from Fox: Did Dominion win more than $? What do Smartmatic and Abby Grossberg have on Fox, Carlson et al? What don't we know about suits against Giuliani, Powell, Lindell? Will other hosts be gone soon? Bartiromo? Just asking questions.

Hi all. I'm a former reporter and editor and now I'm an opinion writer. Here's one of my recent pieces for The Bulwark, about Trump's history-making prosecutors and the "permission structure" he creates for racism. https://www.thebulwark.com...
