Tapper isn't stupid. So when he says something this stupid, I can only assume that it's out of malice.

Here's my absolute favorite cover of "I Knew You Were Trouble."

Taylor Swift can support Democrats, if she really likes socialism, likes political harassment, dislikes civility, or thinks people shouldn't be considered "innocent until proven guilty" ... but she should NOT have lied about Marsha Blackburn.

Horrific misogynist hires ... all women clerks.

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh settled into his chambers on Sunday, and hired four clerks. Keeping to his tradition of making history by promoting women into powerful legal positions, Kavanaugh became the first U.S. Supreme Court justice — ever — to have all female clerks.

Justice Kavanaugh met with his four law clerks, all women — a first for the Supreme Court — in chambers that had until recently been occupied by Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., who has moved to Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s old chambers.
