Maine attraction: Northeastern state's closely divided statehouse a key 2018 battleground  

Daily Kos Elections' project to calculate the 2016 presidential results for every state legislative seat in the nation comes to Maine, where the GOP holds a one-seat majority in the state Senate, and Democrats have a small edge in the state House. You can find our master list of states here, which we'll be updating as we add new data sets; you can also find all of our calculations from 2016 and past cycles here. The Democrats controlled both the House and Senate from 2003 until the 2010 GOP w

Open thread for night owls: Shallow media transform net neutrality struggle into clash of brands  

John O'Day at Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting writes—Net Neutrality Reduced to Mogul vs. Mogul in Corporate Media's Shallow Coverage:  A common refrain in popular news media is that net neutrality is just too boring and esoteric for ordinary people to be interested in. "Oh my god that is the most boring thing I've ever seen," John Oliver (HBO, 6/1/14) once exclaimed after showing his audience a short clip from a government hearing on the subject.

Discovering the Limitations of Statues  

Gail Collins, New York TimesThere are two ways to look at what happened this week in Charlottesville, Va. One is as a crisis over racism, anti-Semitism and violence. The other is as a crisis over the removal of Robert E. Lee on a horse. We know where our president went. “Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments,” wrote Donald Trump.

That was potentially leaving dozens of counties around the country "bare," with no insurer in the marketplace.

Voting Rights Roundup: Court strikes down Texas GOP's congressional map, but doesn't go far enough

The court ordered lawmakers to swiftly lay out their plans to redraw the map, which is shown at the top of this post (click here for a larger version). The ne...

We had been promised a "pivot" from Donald Trump for at least a year now, certainly ever since he clinched the GOP nomination last summer. This week it finally came when Trump used the bully pulpit of the presidency to offer a full-throated defense of neo-Nazis and white supremacists. After stewing for days over criticism of his total void in leadership following the Charlottesville violence, Trump went to a press conference on "infrastructure" loaded for bear and got exactly what he...

July 2017 sets global temperature record  

July is a hot month in the northern hemisphere. It can be beaten sometimes by August, but hopefully that won't happen this year. Because July 2017 wasn't a warm July, it was the hottest month ever measured in the modern global temperature record. And if that's not depressing enough, there's more: July 2017 has narrowly topped July 2016 as the hottest July on record, according to a shocking analysis by scientists at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) released Tuesda...

Why Was ISIS Terror Cell Able to Operate in Spain?

Acting ICE director promises to rip even more hardworking immigrant families apart  

We know that despite Donald Trump's claims about targeting only "bad hombres," his immoral mass deportation force has been sweeping up hardworking undocumented parents with no criminal record by the thousands, without any regard for the lives they've already built here. Just this week, Oakland nurse Maria Mendoza-Sanchez and her husband, Eusebio Sanchez, were deported to Mexico, despite having clean records, U.S. citizen kids, and years of paying taxes.

The story highlights pediatricians who are outraged that their young patients have been endangered, and that decision-making process that got them he

Bannon's departure will change nothing  

Notorious White House adviser Steve Bannon is leaving the Trump administration. The New York Times reports that Trump is discussing how to get rid of him — though Bannon's camp argues he handed in his resignation on Aug. 7 (You can't fire me, I quit!). No one can possibly predict with any certainty what precisely will happen in the ongoing train wreck that is Trump's failing presidency. But we can say with reasonable confidence that Bannon's departure changes nothing of consequence. The corpu...

Female broadcasters speak out about how they are forced to dress sexy for attention and ratings  

Being a woman in the workplace is not easy—especially in career fields dominated by men. Aside from a very real pay gap in terms of how women's labor is compensated in comparison to men's, women are also often subjected to sexism and harassment at work. Women in the television industry are also very likely to experience this kind of behavior—especially given the heavy emphasis on looks and overall appearance. From the words of current and former broadcasters in Boston, they are generall...

Donald Trump's Infrastructure Week builds a case for do-over  

So … how was your Infrastructure Week? Donald Trump did do some real building this week—he created a ten-lane bridge between the nation's anger and disgust. Unfortunately, it didn't help create any jobs. In fact, at least one was lost. Following Trump's hug-a-Nazi workshop, the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities went out the door en masse, while delivering a fantastic take this job and fugue it letter. Though it's not clear if they took their honorary chairman...

White House staffers apparently didn't know what Bannon did 'other than stab his colleagues in the back'  

President Trump fired his chief strategist Stephen Bannon on Friday, and it sure seems like no one in the White House will be torn up over his departure. Shortly after the news broke, Politico published a particularly brutal post-mortem of the Bannon era, with Bannon's now-former colleagues ripping the staunch conservative's tendency to inflame personal tensions: [Chief of Staff John] Kelly didn't understand what Bannon did, why he had a PR portfolio, why he seemed to cause so much trouble with

These 6 quotes about how Bannon is going to get his revenge have zero chill  

Chief strategist Stephen Bannon is out at the White House, but in the words of The New York Times' Maggie Haberman, "Bannon is much more of a problem for the White House staff from the outside than inside it." That's putting it mildly, at least if you ask people in the orbit of Bannon and Breitbart, the far-right publication Bannon might soon be returning to lead. In the words of Breitbart editor Joel Pollak, after all, this means #WAR. Here are six dramatic quotes about the coming storm. 1.

Bannon's ousting has been rumored since the spring, with even Trump finally conceding his aide's future was uncertain earlier this week. Even Bannon admitted he'd didn't think he'd last more than eight months in Washington. (He was sworn in seven months ago next Tuesday.)

Colbert took special issue with Trump's argument, on Twitter and at a press conference, that because George Washington owned slaves, the decision to take down a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee will lead America down a slippery, heritage-erasing slope to removing statues of Washington and fellow

Another 46 percent of Americans believe that far-right groups were most responsible for the violence, the SurveyMonkey poll found, whereas just 9 percent believe counter-protesters are most to blame.
