In related news, Will Bunch comments on Republican profiles in courage:

To anyone who insists there’s no such thing as an honest Republican, I present you with Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma. Cole went on CNBC the other day to confess that he doesn’t know much about the economics of the massive tax overhaul he’s about to vote for – and that what little he does understand, he doesn’t much like. But he said he understands the most important thing is to not cross his tribe.

More courageousness at the link.

The Galt and the Lamers 0

Paul Krugman tries to make sense of the Republican rush to enrich those who already have more money than they can use. A snippet (emphasis added):

Today’s Republicans are apparatchiks who have spent their whole lives inside an intellectual bubble in which cutting taxes on corporations and the rich is always objective No. 1. Their party used to know that it won elections despite its economic program, not because of it — that the whole game was to win by playing on social issues, national security and above all on racial antagonism, then use the win to push fundamentally unpopular economic policies. But over the years the party has seemed increasingly out of touch with that reality, imagining that if only it preaches the gospel of supply-side economics loudly enough voters will be won over.

Immunity Impunity 0

Bob Egelko explores Donald Trump’s lawyer’s claims that, to paraphrase Richard Nixon, if the President does it, it’s not illegal. A snippet:

But there appears to be little support among legal analysts for the view that a president who corruptly interferes with an investigation of his administration would be immune from charges of obstructing justice.

“That would mean that if the police were corrupt, you could never investigate the chief of police,” said Hadar Aviram, a professor of constitutional law at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. “The law enforcement system is not the private police of the president. It belongs to all of us.”
