Rachel Peterson was having a miscarriage and her doctor prescribed misoprostol, a drug also used to treat stomach ulcers that can be used, with another drug, to induce an abortion. A pharmacist at Meijer refused to fill the prescription on religious grounds and refused to transfer the prescription to another store.

Stop me if you’ve seen this one before. The Republicans pass a huge tax cut for the rich, blowing a hole in federal revenue and ballooning the deficit, then suddenly get very concerned about the growing debt.

In the wake of the beatdown of several anti-fascist protesters by members of the group Proud Boys, Sean Hannity has tried to blame it all on the left, absurdly.

If there is one undeniable hallmark of Trump’s entire life it is that he never, ever accepts responsibility for anything bad. Everything he does is the biggest, best, greatest, classiest, most stupendous. And anything bad that happens is obviously someone else’s fault. So it’s no surprise that he says he won’t take responsibility if Republicans lose in the midterms. (more…) Read more

Max Boot is a lifelong Republican. A former Soviet emigre to this country and one of the nation’s foremost experts on the Cold War and American foreign policy, Boot has advised many Republican presidents and candidates over the last few decades.

Hugh Hewitt, who for very brief periods of time manages to pretend not to be an idiot on MSNBC, thinks he has the perfect person to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions when Trump inevitably fires him (via Twitter, of course, because Trump is a coward who can’t fire someone face to face). His preferred replacement: J. Michael Luttig. (more…) Read more
