Team Trump marks a month of policy goofs and Florida golf games with a celebratory press release 21.2.2017 Daily Kos
The Trump team is out with a new press release heralding "PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP'S FIRST MONTH: ACHIEVING RESULTS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE." You can tell how hard they had to work at it from the things they chose. A bunch of them are "signed an executive order directing somebody else to look into something," which for Donald Trump counts as real work. Others of them are not the sort of thing a normal team would look to highlight. President Trump signed legislation, House Joint Resolution 38, to block the burdensome “Stream Protection Rule” from causing further harm to the coal industry. Take that, American streams. We're not going to let a little thing like poisoning local water supplies get in the way of pretending coal jobs are coming back. President Trump signed legislation, House Joint Resolution 41, to eliminate a costly regulation that threatened to put domestic extraction companies and their employees at an unfair disadvantage.

Morning Digest: Another political abyss beckons to Mark Sanford, and he doesn't seem to care 20.2.2017 Daily Kos
Leading Off ● SC-01: In a must-read piece, Politico's Tim Alberta checks in with South Carolina GOP Rep. Mark Sanford , our favorite real estate developer-turned political neophyte-turned congressman-turned governor-turned national conservative hero -turned national punch line -turned censured but not impeached governor -turned disgraced former governor-turned comeback seeker-turned guy who was about to lose a safely red seat -turned guy who beat Stephen Colbert's sister-turned congressman-turned Trump skeptic. So how is Sanford doing these days? Well, the Politico Magazine article is titled "I'm a Dead Man Walking."

But in 2016, Sanford only beat then-state Rep. Jenny Horne 56-44 in the primary, even though Horne barely spent anything against him. Sanford himself barely dipped into his warchest, telling ...
