His "$35 Million does not go that far flood-control wise" comment is stunning in it's disconnect with reality.

Today in worthless political grandstanding. (Or: Pelosi in a nutshell) #BadPolitics
This was more about trying to pump up an embattled Pelosi's bonifides with the liberal base than it was actually accomplishing something.

By "dialogue" of course they mean just listening to them ramble and agreeing with everything they say.

The revisionist history on "nipplegate" is astonishing. #BadMedia
Janet Jackson was rightly panned. At that point she was a fading star who was desperately trying to revive a moribund career.

She thought showing skin would accomplish that, it backfired.

The comments on this are amazing, as conservatives, hell-bent to oppose Davis, are taking a hard-line against small business on the side of big, intrusive government.

P. Bush has been awful as Land Comish. Patterson coming back would be worse. #TexasPolitcs
Patterson is probably senile, and has royal delusions of grandeur. Plus, he has one of the worst political attack machines in the State working for him.

'Music's biggest night?' The 2018 Grammys were an embarrassment. Maeve McDermott. USA Today
Hard to make the "race" case when the person who swept the major awards was himself a minority.

Granted, I think hip-hop deserves more, but just because the music you like didn't win doesn't mean what you want it to mean.

That said Despicito should have won song of the year.

Tomlinson is frequently wrong, but saying current Texas Republicans are potentially bad for business is not entirely inaccurate. #BadPolitics
The Regulatory State in Texas is ridiculous, as is the Margins tax and a host of other government programs.

The Texas General Land Office is about the worst regulatory agency to work with in the United States.

The problem is, Democrats would be infinitely worse.
