It’s Friday. But is it really a Good Friday?
It is Friday, right?
“Our profits are awe-inspiring.” And we’re open for comments.
The GOP tries to speak Millennial. Steve Benen has “a hard time imagining Democrats watching the RNC’s ads and feeling nervous.”
It’s Friday Open Thread. Speak your mind.
It’s been a busy week of back and forth. What’s been happening in the Cesspool of Sin?

• American Legislative Exchange Council forms new initiative
• Offshoot will target ‘villages, towns, cities and counties’
Now the council is looking to take its blueprint for influence over statewide lawmaking and drill it down to the local level. It has already quietly set up, and is making plans for the public launch of, an offshoot called the American City County Exchange (ACCE) that will target policymakers from “villages, towns, cities and counties”.
The new organisation will offer corporate America a direct conduit into the policy making process of city councils and municipalities. Lobbyists acting on behalf of major businesses will be able to propose resolutions and argue for new profit-enhancing legislation in front of elected city officials, who will then return to their council chambers and seek to implement the proposals.
Is it Spring yet?
