left bubble media is certainly out there, but it doesn't have the toxic reputation that right-bubble media has. I've seen righties talk about Daily Kos or Rawstory, but even they don't couch it in the same derogatory context as lefties will discuss Drudge or Breitbart.

Yep, they've gone in a weird direction. Now it's all under Verizon along with Yahoo, guess they'll just layoff a ton of reporters and just rehash reports from other outlets. Or in business terms, CONSOLIDATION

I mean, you could see it in this article:

There is tiny amounts of bubbling in the far FAR left (little blue splotches), but it's nothing compared to the blatant bubble that Trump supporters live in on that twitter spectrum.

Liberals and Progressives are just much more likely to actually read valid sources.

They're basically testing the waters for firing Mueller. I think Trump's (idiot) sons and his dirty business associates are going to convince him to do it. The danger with a SC was always that it would expand and look at everything. In this case, "everything" includes a lot of dirty money and questionable business.

The question I have...will Rosenstein agree to fire him, on grounds of "well this was supposed to be about the Russian probe but now he's looking at all this other stuff so..." It seems possible, but we'll see. I'd like to believe Rosenstein would refuse, and resign or be fired.

Firing Mueller is going to be titanic. Not sure how republicans would respond, although I think Burr is doing his job and would likely react correctly. But Paul Ryan and everyone else? Eh.

To me, Rosenstein had a bug up his ass about Comey the same way Comey had a bug up his ass about Clinton and Lynch--the behavior offended his sensibilities. But I can't imagine Rosenstein agreeing to fire a guy he personally and unilaterally appointed for doing the job he absolutely must have understood he'd do when he appointed him.

It hasn't been sent to CBO yet. I think the expectation was the draft would be finished and sent off this week, but seems like they might be behind that.

I think if it's not sent to CBO before the end of the week, getting a floor vote before the recess will become impossible.

Oof. Texas gets closer with every election. It probably still won't go blue/purple until 2024 or later, but, because of anti-Trump sentiment, 2020 could be closer than anyone expects. Some House Republicans from Texas should be worried.

I also have a sliver of hope for Beto O'Rourke next year. I just wish he hadn't kneecapped himself by refusing to accept "corporate money." No one would have fucking cared in an anti-Trump wave, but no, he has to show people how wonderful and morally superior and anti-establishment (despite being in Congress for years) he is.

The 64% negative is even more amazing assuming they weren't pushing undecideds hard. Basically everyone who isn't a GOP diehard dislikes him.

I have little expectation anything could happen, but maybe.

We'll see how long Greitens can "take on the establishment" I guess. I tend to think that strategy works less once you're actually in office (and therefore the establishment).

Among whites without a college education, who voted overwhelmingly in favor of Trump last year, 50 percent say they approve of Trump, down slightly from 58 percent in March.
