Or maybe instead of Oprah/Belichick it should be Belichick-Oprah 2020? Or perhaps they could take turns as president and veep—a good cop-bad cop kind of thing? https://t.co/VtLVmD5SPi

Not to be too earnest, but the question really isn’t whether it should be called a #trumpshutdown or a #SchumerShutdown. In fact it seems to be a #CongressShutdown, or a #CapacityForSelfGovernmentShutdown.

Trump's approval/disapproval unchanged from 6 months ago; party ID unchanged from a year ago. Underneath the turmoil, few people seem to have changed their minds in 2017. Numbers remain weak but non-catastrophic for Trump and GOP. Will that hold for 2018? https://t.co/CTLQBgI6v2

The Vice President uses American troops abroad as political props and tweets: "@POTUS & I and the American people are NOT GOING TO PUT UP WITH IT." One assumes Pence is merely indulging in vulgar tough-guy rhetoric. But in fact it is a scene more appropriate to a banana republic. https://t.co/cbtvRoqmJo

Depressing. The Vice President, visiting American troops abroad, uses them as props for a partisan political message. https://t.co/kneb95jq0d

Watching the shutdown and the squabbling over it, one can't help but think of Lincoln's Lyceum Address, 180 years ago this week: "If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."

This review is well worth reading. Note to @fredbauerblog : The “Tocqueville Option” is excellent, and I intend shamelessly to steal that formulation, if that's ok. Or even if it's not... https://t.co/N5LseztMnI

"President John Kelly serves at the sufferance of tweeter-in-chief Donald Trump....Let us hope that that symbiotic relationship continues to thrive for as long as the Trump presidency endures." https://t.co/DzJRKEDPMI

225 years ago today: King Louis XVI is executed by guillotine in the Place de la Revolution in Paris. The contrast between the American and French Revolutions is surely one of the major facts of modern world history.

33 years ago today: In his second inaugural address, Reagan quotes a letter from Jefferson to Adams: "...beset with difficulties and dangers, we were fellow laborers in the same cause, struggling for what is most valuable to man, his right to self-government."

Enjoyed the production tonight at @ShakespeareinDC of Hamlet. A nice break from the bitter animosity and poisonous hatreds of our politics.

On the first anniversary of the Trump presidency, conservative commentators seem eager to provide evidence, as @JVLast argued two years ago, that Trumpism is "a zombie virus making fools of the people who embrace it." It was and is true: Trumpism corrupts. https://t.co/yn79ntrota
