In other news, Senator Ron Johnson says he won't vote for the tax cut bill as it currently exists. That's great, but he said the same thing about Obamacare repeal.

Meanwhile, the man behind a right wing conspiracy theory that the Washington Post paid Roy Moore's accusers apparently stole the identity of a Navy SEAL who died in 2007. Classy!

Finally, an investigation funded by the The Times in London has found that over 150,000 social accounts based in Russia promoted the Brexit in the days leading up to the vote in 2016.

Russian Twitter accounts posted more than 45,000 messages about Brexit in 48 hours during last year’s referendum in an apparently co-ordinated attempt to sow discord, The Times can reveal.

More than 150,000 accounts based in Russia, which had previously confined their posts to subjects such as the Ukrainian conflict, switched attention to Brexit in the days leading up to last year’s vote, according to research for an upcoming paper by data scientists at Swansea University and the University of California, Berkeley.

I'm signing off a little early because we basically had no sunlight today and I feel like a goddamn zombie. I can't even see straight.

Oh, and here's a thing that happened today:

Some of my favorites:

    Damn, aside from not being able to control Trump, Putin had a fantastic year destabilizing the West. He must be very proud and happy.

      They think a pedophile is better than any of us on the left.

  • Tony Lavely

    I’ve yet to see anything that even hints his “loss of memory” is anything but another lie. I’m gonna stay with Jeff “I lied under oath” Sessions.
    As always, YMMV.
