The Corner

Status Update

Just so you folks know, the G-File has not been canceled. It’s been moved to Fridays. Nor have I cut way back in Corner posting because I like it that way. The manuscript for my book is due this summer and I’m entering the freaking-out stage of that process. Please bear with me. The good news is that after extensive negotiations, much spilled blood, and — oddly — several dead muskrats, I can announce that Debby, of Odd Link, Weird Stuff, Odd Stuff and Weird Link fame, will be posting her interweb gold straight to the Corner. Not sure when that will start (I’m not even sure I was supposed to announce it, I just felt like it. That’s how I roll). But it’s coming. Oh yes, it’s coming.

Meanwhile, I’m grateful for your indulgence.

What Was Trump So Annoyed About?

This tweet, from CNN's Chris Cilizza, is a nice illustration of the genre: Donald ... Read More

Our Long National Hysteria 

Our long national hysteria may not be over, but at least it should — by rights — be diminished. Robert Mueller delivered his long-awaited report on Friday, and Attorney General William Barr just released his summary of the findings. They completely vindicate President Trump regarding the allegation that ... Read More
