Bear in mind, the GOP's numbers are still abysmal - they're polling badly, we're polling great, and Trump's numbers have been hanging at around 41 or 40% consistently.

Why is Trump pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal? Everyone from generals, to members of congress to other countries that are partnered in the deal are saying it's a bad idea to pull out of it, but I can't see why Trump wants to pull out of it so badly other than the fact that Obama did it.

That's exactly why he's pulling out of it. Obama did it.

Because he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and his base wouldn't abandon him.

That's about all he's got going for him right now.  His base.  A base that couldn't get a Republican voted in Alabama.

Ironbite-granted Roy Moore was a cock sucking pedophile but he was a Republican.

Luther Strange would almost certainly have beaten Doug Jones. Roy Moore was a special mix of awful.

Anyone else surprised that the North Koreans are backing out of talks now due to South Korean and US military drills?

Dear god, this is a read. Warning, very long article, but it basically goes into detail about how Trump and his administration is basically dismantling the whole government and replacing it all with people personally loyal to Trump. Lots of detail. The long and short of it is basically what we already know, that Trump is sidelining people who either disagreed with him or just don't agree with him enough and putting in their place people who are personally loyal to him and are willing to trumpet that loyalty, and how it's producing big problems. But it's still fascinating and a little shocking to actually read it.

Much as I hate to be the Godwin guy, it does remind me of what was said in my history class;

"the job of any German officer or politician in the Third Reich was to take facts and occurrences, and make them align with Hitler's perspective."

The Senate has exercised its authority under the Congressional Review Act to look to overturn the FCC's decision to end net neutrality.

The vote was 52-47... in favour of overturning the FCC decision.

Every Democratic and Independent Senator voted for the motion. Additionally, three Republican Senators voted for the motion, Sens. Collins (ME), Murkowski (AK), and Kennedy (LA). Sen. McCain (R-AZ) did not vote.

The motion now moves to the House. If it passes that chamber, it must be signed (or have no action taken on it) by Pres. Trump to overturn the FCC decision.
