Weekend Reads: ICYMI

Plus, an interview with me.

My friend Josh Holland is an editor for Alternet. He’s also co-host of We’ve Got Issues, Raw Story’s podcast. We talked last week about “The Drip-Drip-Drip of Incriminating Evidence Is Going to Be Torture for Senate Republicans,” published in the Editorial Board. During the interview, it occurred to me I need to think harder about how to describe Donald Trump’s “Ponzi scheme of lies,” modeled after the GOP’s. After you give it a listen, let me know what you think. We need a better working metaphor.

While I have your attention, please consider becoming a founding member of the Editorial Board where you can become a supporter for whatever amount you can afford. Just click the image below, delete $100, and type in your preferred annual payment.

Thank you for supporting politics in plain English for the common good!
