Saturday coffee klatch: Hitting our heads on the debt ceiling and other lowlights of the past week
Grab a cup and pull up a chair!
Welcome back to my Saturday coffee klatch with Heather Lofthouse, executive director of Inequality Media Civic Action (and my former student).
This morning we take a look at the past week, in particular:
— The debt ceiling scare, and the House Republicans’ attempt to hold the full faith and credit of the U.S. hostage to their demands.
— George Santos, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, and other luminaries of the new Republican House.
— Supreme Court leaks, who Sherlock Holmes would name as the probable leaker, and why the Court doesn’t have a code of ethics.
Grab a cup and pull up a chair, and also take our poll.
And per our discussion, a photo of me teaching eons ago:
