The real reason for the unpainted stainless Cybertruck decision is *hushed voice* disruption.
This is unprecedented innovation, folks. Nobody has ever tried to justify this exact decision in misleading ways, only for the truth to end up in their obituary https://t.co/KaxUABkWrX pic.twitter.com/lTHL59xEZR

Always enjoy it when Josh Barro weighs in on a nepotism debate.

Worth it just for the use of the phrase "controlled detonation."

So I did a deep dive into commas a few years ago and discovered that almost every comma rule you know was codified or invented by Strunk & White in 1918 or the editor of the New Yorker in 1935, and that's how I learned to stop worrying and love commas-as-rhythm. https://t.co/Ojo4yZd6L7

Lou Dobbs: Trump is "already the greatest president. And if you look at any other president and what they are able to accomplish in 3 years, without a Congress, without the help of their own conference, their own party, it's extraordinary" pic.twitter.com/CmRO0sHCpG

My current rule. Adapted from @ThePlumLineGS.
All discussions of "Good lord, why are we so divided? America can't even agree on common facts" (very popular these days) should be framed instead as: how did the Republican Party arrive at this place? https://t.co/UCunJhK5qD

If you read press coverage of the Democratic campaign, you'd get no sense at all that Democratic voters are quite happy with their field, even though those numbers are as high as they've ever been.
