COMMENTARY WORTH READING


VIDEO WORTH WATCHING

  • Chick-fil-A throws surprise birthday party for 100-year-old. Fox News.
  • CNN confused by latest episode of fake news. Daily Caller.
  • Joe Donnelly tied to Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders in new ad. NTK Network.

OFFBEAT BEAT

  • Mosquitoes force high-speed chase suspect in Wisconsin to surrender. ABC 13 Houston.

TWEETS OF NOTE

  • (@EWErickson) It seems more and more likely that the Blasey Ford delays were not to let her drive across country, but were to allow the Ramirez hit to get out. This is all coordinated and none of it is credible. Tweet.
  • (@seanmdav) The mood among GOP voters right now is unmistakeable: they are out for blood. If Kavanaugh is confirmed, they’ll eagerly turn out in November to defeat Democrats and their lies. But if Kavanaugh is jettisoned, they’ll gleefully sit back and let the GOP get destroyed in November. Tweet.
