Independent Senators?

    Nate Silver ponders, continued after the jump:

    Perhaps a bit far-fetched, but Romney actually has a decent amount of leverage, if he and one of Collins, Murkowski, etc. threatened to become "Independent Republicans" or what have you who caucused with the Democrats.

    Considering The Unthinkable: A Trump Coup

    If you look up "presidential results 2020" on Google, you will find a pretty clear cut case: Democratic nominee Joe Biden has 306 electoral votes to Donald Trump's 232. Under any normal circumstance, this would be as clear a case as any, but these are not normal circumstances.

    It is really good to see Fox not building up false hope in a Trump litigation strategy. Can't stress this enough.

    Election: BIDEN/HARRIS VICTORY GIN (we love you big biden)

    Good place to add your Biden/Harris victory comments, donations, advice, complaints, and merchandise orders.

    Just do it.

    I think this is an excellent idea. Red v. blue maps should basically be outlawed. Our lives are not a football game (one based on the Electoral College, yet.) Not to mention the problem of both parties having lost their traditional meanings and the large number of people who register as Independents.

    Woodward's Interviews with Jared Kushner

    Kushner's two interviews with Woodward, April 18 and May 8, discussed in Woodward's book Rage, and on the CNN page at this link, which page also has audio from the interviews, which were recorded by Woodward:

    Jared Kushner bragged in April that Trump was taking the country 'back from the doctors'

    Trump had given Woodward the go ahead to interview Kushner in a recorded interview on Feb. 19:
