Thursday: An open line and a busy day in the news

ALSO: For your reading pleasure, Neal Gabler of and reprinted in Salon,  writes that Donald Trump, bad as he is, is a distrction from a larger truth. He is no aberration, though the media has been derelict in treating him that way.

In fact, worse than dereliction, because the Republican Party, with its history of dog-whistle racism, sexism, homophobia, nativism, and gun addiction, salted now by incipient fascism, has been legitimized by the mainstream media for years. One could say that the GOP and MSM have operated in collusion to the great detriment of this country. One could say that and not even be a liberal, just a commonsensical American.

Today’s GOP is closer to a religious cult than a political institution.
