This Year in Bullshit

This Week in Bullshit

Forget about This Week in Bullshit. Capitol Hill’s given us enough material this year to serve you up something special. That’s why we at The Recount are breaking format to survey a bleak year in this foul habitat, filled with henchmen and stooges talkin' outta their hat, all to get a pat on the back from a would-be autocrat. Without further ado, here is This YEAR in Bullshit.

The Victory Lab

In Defense of the Iowa Caucuses

Unrepresentative. Unfair. Outdated. These are just some of the words pundits, politicians, and party officials have used to describe the Iowa caucuses. Sasha Issenberg — political journalist and author — disagrees. In fact, he's willing to go out on a limb to defend the caucuses unlike anyone else. Hear his case in the first episode of The Victory Lab, Recount's new video essay series. Oh, and wondering what the hell the Iowa caucuses are or how they work? Don't worry, Issenberg explains the process in terms everyone can understand — with M&Ms.

Sondland's Explosive Testimony \ Trump's Sondland Problem \ Dem Debate Preview \ Everybody Loves Gordon

Doesn't get much clearer than the "answer is yes." Sondland veered onto an alternate course today as he confirms a quid pro quo. Plus, that $1 million donation to Trump's inaugural committee didn't stop Sondland from throwing the president under the bus, along with Pompeo… and Bolton… and Mulvaney… and Pence… and Giuliani. Holy shit. Oh, and if that weren't enough, there's a Dem debate tonight at 9 p.m. ET.

Today the House voted to limit the president’s war powers. Plus, Trump deals a blow to the climate crisis, and Sarah Sanders needs a refresher on the Constitution.
