  1. First national poll (by PPP) since caucuses on Monday shows Cruz and Rubio closing the gap dramatically . Hmmm.

    PPP Poll December 17th
    Trump 34
    Cruz 18
    Rubio 13

    PPP Poll February 3rd
    Trump 25
    Cruz 21
    Rubio 21

    It’s only one poll…I get that…but still interesting to many I’m sure.

  2. Stacy Dash hit the nail on the head.

    “What I hate is the stereotypes that so-called “black entertainment” has created. I hate they say that I am not ‘black enough’ once I open my mouth. I hate that liberals make the rules – white liberals are the most racist people I’ve ever met. They demand that black people act a certain way, vote a certain way, and think a certain way.”

  3. A current issue that shows slant/ bias reporting like no other: the Flint Michigan water problem. The congressional hearings yesterday as reported by:
    SPECIAL REPORT: EPA mismanagement highlights of testimony
    CBS THIS MORNING: state officials mismanagement, not even a mention of EPA

    Yes, Virginia, Republicans kill black people.

    • I suggest you read the Daily Howler on this.

      Somerby cuts through the bluster and political posturing and gives the information about how the rise in lead levels comport with what was deemed the norm as late as 2008, etc.

  4. Thank you, Mr. Concha, for elucidating upon what is obvious in the midst of the usual people playing their usual game of pretending that it’s not obvious.

  5. Today’s most popular links…
    5 lost his license
    4 coin
    3 skipping live news
    2 ashamed to be black
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Making excuses for Trump is now the fun part of Morning Joe.
