I wish I could fill you in a bit about Domenique Dumont but it's a bit of a mystery. I can tell you though the music is a soundtrack for a secret beach yet to be discovered. What are you listening to tonight?
Noting Mr. David Brooks capitulating to the soft-testicled carriers of weapons of mass murder, and got it into my head to visit the NRA's website. Under the heading "Trending on NRA Publications" was a link to an article "10 ReasonsShow More Summary

Apparently Rick Gates is not being as cooperative as we thought. Either there has been some discussion of pardons or he is a very, very stupid man. I am not sure which, but whatever the case, Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed serious...Show More Summary
After noting that the NRA is quite shrill today at CPAC because they are terrified of the students who are standing up to them, Katy Tur brought a couple of them on for an extended interview. Watch them. They're passionate, but calm....Show More Summary
Today's White House press briefing was a combination of infuriating, lying wonkery, outright lies, and one moment of amusement. Rather than amplify the lies, I've chosen to bring you the amusing moment when ABC correspondent Jon Karl...Show More Summary
NOTE: Seb Gorka says the F-word in this post/video. Use your best judgment at work. Gee, Seb Gorka confirms everything I already thought about him. He's a bully, and there are very good reasons why he was ousted from the White House as an impossible case when it comes to getting a security clearance. Show More Summary
Claudia Tenney looks nice enough in her photo, doesn't she? A nice young mom, former Marine, and total unhinged wingnut. After Trump's State of the Union address, Tenney called Democrats "un-American" and also that they "don't love their...Show More Summary
A popular narrative today is that we live in a country which is deeply divided. And the Democratic Party, we are told, is nearly as split as the nation itself. But chatter in the press and social media may overlook some fundamental points...Show More Summary
It was a very powerful segment. Stephanie Ruhle argued it would be "a genius move for the NRA to say 'Let's give a crumb,' we all have made a decision about what the NRA is. If they gave something, the rest of the world would sort of be dumbfounded." "This is about money. Show More Summary
At last night's CNN Town Hall, Jake Tapper introduced Gabriel Edenbaum. "He hid in a closet until the SWAT team arrived. Gabriel has a question," he said. "Why can a 19-year-old with mental health issues and other problems walk into a gun store and buy a gun and ammunition, when his mom called the cops on him 39 times?" Edenbaum asked. Rep.

[embed eid="28217" /] This is weird, right? That there's such a moral vacuum at the top in America that light-night comedians feel compelled to step up and fill it? I have to think this makes a difference, though. Maybe some of it is...Show More Summary
Conservatives have a lot of scapegoats for the shooting in Parkland, Florida -- inadequate mental health screening, video games, an FBI failure, or maybe they just think the whole thing was a hoax staged by crisis actors. How can Rush...Show More Summary
CNN's tranquil little discussion about Jared Kushner, nepotism, and security clearances fell right off the track Tuesday night, First, we had Jeff Toobin just calling it straight out of the gate, which should have ended any question about whether Jared Kushner should remain in the White House after his security clearance was denied.

It was on this day, February 21st, in 1967 that Syd Barrett and the Pink Floyd started their first sessions at London's EMI Studios for their debut album Pipers At The Gates of Dawn. The first song they worked on was Matilda Mother. What are you listening to tonight?
CNN is hosting a truly powerful Town Hall tonight to address the horrific shooting in at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. One of the students, Cameron Kasky, came right out and asked Marco Rubio the million dollar question: Will...Show More Summary
