    A typo on SnapChat done by someone else? Impeach her immediately.

    An inability to spell or catch spelling errors in those surrounding our Secretary of Education is beyond ironic and more indicative of sheer incompetence.

    Impeachment? On this we agree. Add in the buffoon who appointed her for a win-win.

    I'm the first one to pile on Agent Orange and his Sec-Ed--I think what he was saying is that really a post she or her handlers released? I may be giving them too much credit but is it likely they misspelled this obviously?

    Palin is so fake. Or insane. Both. This is how a supposedly educated 53 year old woman talks. And to think, she was on the republican presidential ticket in 2008. And people elected her as Governor.

    And what has one of these "buddies", one of these "All-American" dudes said in the past:
    But of course, Nugent does have this in common with the current president:

    I thought these were good ol' southern boys? Didn't they learn to take their hats off in a house?

    OK, I get that they are "rock stars" and as such have to maintain their image of dressing the part/ But can't Palin respect the office and position and dress appropriately? I believe she is wealthy... yet she looks like she shops at the sale rack at KMart?

    Remember the hostility when Obama had hip-hop stars visiting the White House?

    http://www.utilitydive.com/news/epa...ng-mercury-emissions-from-coal-plants/440850/

    The EPA is asking courts for a time-out on the lawsuits against it for the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards that it has been defending. The head of the EPA, Scott Pruitt, is one of the Attorneys General that sued the EPA in the first place trying to stop the rule. Now, he gets to change sides in the litigation. The MATS rule, not the CPP, is the biggest policy driver that's been putting coal plants out of business (there are other drivers, of course, that are probably more important, like the low price of gas and the age of coal assets). What I find really disappointing about this is that it's not a climate change rule, where they can obfuscate and say it's a conspiracy by the Chinese. This is about all the dirty ass **** coal plants pump out for us to breathe. It's thousands of deaths per year. Now, this is just a review, but Pruitt is already very familiar with the issue having been on the other side of the fight, and it's probably not a stretch to say his mind is probably made up already. The EPA can't just withdraw it though, or drop it's defense. There is already a health finding and a court order to write MATS in the first place. They'll get sued again by a host of other injured parties if they try to just take it away.

    Why Is Jeff Sessions Attacking the Police?

    Of course, a spokesman for the NY police responded:

    Again, this is the chief law enforcement officer, Trump's choice for Attorney General, outright lying to you, and in a racist manner, just to support Trump's ludicrous wall.

    You think?

    Flynn probably broke the law by failing to disclose foreign payments, House Oversight leaders say

    Flynn was fired from his job in the previous administration, described by General Powell as being "right-wing nutty" and "a jerk". WTF was Trump thinking when he named Flynn to be National Security Adviser? Was there any vetting done at all???
