    Cute signoff to LOD. Not only does Nadler watch Rach, but he also watches LOD too, eh? Very sweet of Rach to mention Nadler's referral to LOD.

    Jeez, it takes me by surprised when Rach plays a Trump clip. Had to make a mad dash for the remote to mute it quick. Please don't make me do that again, Rach! I get it. Trump was acting like a 2 year old -- for the zillionth time. I just don't need to see it or hear it, thanks. Ah, Rachel & her lists. Good list on how the Dems in Congress are inching (er, emphasize INCHING!) closer to getting Trump's financials. Except it's still kinda maddening cuz we have no idea when Dems are ever gonna get 'em. So while it was a good list & it made Rach giddy as hell, I was left sorta annoyed & disgusted.

    Right now, I’m just not interested in her book. To me, right now, it’s about Mazars, Mazars, Mazars. As the Dems in Congress continue to look like weak, spineless jellyfish & Trump stampedes over them & gets away with doing whatever lawless shit he wants, the Mazars trial is the ONE win for Dems — till what seems like forever. Uh, but is Mazars a win for Dems? Trump has predictably appealed, so what does that mean? Rachel has covered this so well, I was so disappointed & annoyed she waited till 20 minutes into her show last nite to cover it. The book? Good luck & God Bless, Rach. I’m sure it’ll be good & it’ll do well. But in the future, big news first, please . . .

    I feel the exact opposite. She’s been talking about the Mazars trial for weeks & an important decision came down. So instead of leading off with that story, she talked for 10 minutes about the book — and in such a self-congratulatory way. She tried to sound humble & it came off insincere & phonyish. I didn’t care for it. Learn from this, Rach. End the show with your book plug, if you must plug it. At least LOD will be more than happy to help with the plug — and it won’t interfere with news of the day or come off like a desperate effort to plug.

    OK, Rach, so you spent the first 10 minutes plugging your book . . . er, can we expect this every nite till it comes out? Hayes totally plugged the shit outta his book. Hopefully, she won’t do the same. I’m also hoping she’ll prioritize news of the day over plugging her book in the future. Nice convo with the new head of Planned Parenthood & good signoff to LOD. Adam Schiff? I like him, but he & Nadler seem so weak & useless lately, it depresses the hell outta me watching either.

    The news is so consistently shitty lately, I can only bear it coming from Rachel. Anyone notice she ain’t been as giddy the last few nites? She’s shaking her head a lot, rolling her eyes & giving WTF looks to the cam. I like that. I don’t know if I’m alone here, but I find it comforting — cuz she’s directly expressing how I feel about the news lately. Ali Velshi? I’ll pass. But I did hear yesterday he kicked the vile & icky Hugh Hewitt to the curb, so Ali is OK to me — but nobody is a good replacement for Rach.

    Sigh, another interview with a capable, nice guy who doesn't have a chance in hell of getting anywhere in the primaries. Well, the Bullock interview was an interesting contrast to Beto, right? Beto now seems even more phony, canned & vapid than I thought when I saw him with Rach. But what both have in common is they could win Senate seats. Jeez, I'm deeply disturbed they're both throwing away good shots at Senate seats for long-shot runs at the Presidency. Ugh. I must say, Rachel would be doing us a great favor if she'd say to those 2 (and maybe some others) that Dems are badly needed in the Senate. Even if there is a Dem President, along with a Dem-majority House, a Repub Senate (particularly still headed up by the vile McConnell) would cause a lot of trouble. This may seem all too obvious, but I have NEVER heard Rachel mention this once. C'mon, Rach, get on this!

    Anyone impressed by Beto? Seems nice enough, but meh. Glad Rach only gave him a half hour. Was much more interested in Rachel’s updates on the court battles over Trump’s financials.

    I got nothing from that Baker interview -- or the dramatic buildup to it. C'mon, Rach, there's too much going on now to waste all that show time. No mention of Rudy & the Ukraine shit? Really? OK, so ya finally got Beto on Monday, Rach. Except Hayes had him on a week ago. Ho-hum & yawn. I was bored stiff after 2 minutes of his interview with Hayes. If Rachel is just gonna share some yucks with Beto cuz he doesn't have much else to offer, I sure hope she doesn't waste a whole hour on him.

    Why the heck is she so damn giddy lately? I mean, I guess it’s way better than watching someone gloomy. It’s just that her sunny/optimistic shtick is so opposite to what’s happening to Dems now. They’re losing at every turn — consistently & badly. It’s depressing as shit. And yet there’s Rach, smiling & jokey & giggling. I kinda don’t get her attitude. I like Neal Katyal. But Rach has him on all the time & he seems a bit useless. Sure, he’s clearly knowledgeable but useless. He seems nice enough, but I can’t help thinking that if he had done a better job of setting up the special council rules we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in now. I’d rather see Chuck, Joyce or Barb.

    But last nite Rachel didn’t even get into any details about the “racy” Falwell Jr. thing. That’s cuz last nite it seemed like yet another Michael Cohen trying-to-get-publicity story. Yawn. I barely paid attention & wondered why Rach was yammering about It. As noted above, Rachel has been giddy as hell the last few nites. And it was really annoying me, given how Trump has been thumbing his nose at Dems in Congress & getting away with everything. Ah, but tonite I enjoyed Rach! First, Hayes ended his show with the totally bizarre twist that Falwell Jr. funded some extremely handsome “pool boy” with millions. Uh, what? Oh man, Rachel’s WTF look to start her show gave me a giggle. But what Rachel said tonite was so dead-on right — that these zillions of battles between Dems and Trump (& his supporters) are really only one battle — it’s all about suppressing Mueller. Well said, Rach!

    Good interview with Kamala. As a DC insider & given the way she so casually crushed Barr a few days ago, it was nice. But as a Presidential candidate, did I learn ANYTHING new? Uh, no. Guess Warren is the only one now who talks deets on policies? Look, I don't blame Rach for wanting to talk with her about the current stuff, but why didn't Rachel at least attempt to veer off into some Presidential discussion? OK, there may have been a slight attempt, but it lasted about a sec. Why, Rach, why?

    So another candidate interview & I came away with nothing other than Bennet seems like a really nice guy. Am I expecting too much of Rachel that I want something substantial & memorable? Even a teeny tiny kernel of something? C’mon, Rach. Will it be another unmemorable interview tonite with Kamala? Hope not. Rachel is certainly not obligated to interview all of the candidates. If de Blasio’s peeps call, they should be told to fuck off.

    OK, Hayes kinda annoys the piss outta me, so his hand-offs to Rachel are usually of zero interest to me. Uh, not so tonite. Rachel asked Hayes quizzically — “Was that the first interview Beto did on cable TV since he announced his run in the Dem primary?” So did Rachel ask that to confirm to us why she hasn’t had him on her show before? Or was she wondering why dum-dum Beto gave his first cable TV interview to a lame-ass lightweight like Hayes, instead of Rachel, who gets way bigger ratings? Or is it just me wondering that? As pretty much the rest of all media is yammering & fussing over whether Barr is gonna testify before Congress, I loved that Rachel’s attitude about it was a big ole who-gives-a-fuck if he does or doesn’t. Of course she’s right cuz he’s already shown us he’s just gonna spout a bunch of Trumpian PR spin whenever he speaks. Rachel is all about Mueller going before Congress. I’m not so sure . . .

    That’s really interesting cuz right now we have absolutely no idea who Rachel favors — or if she favors anyone. Er, hasn’t she pretty much snuggled up to EVERY candidate she’s had on so far? Well, except for Moulton. For some unknown reason, she hates his guts. But he’s a long shot anyway, so who cares? I’m really curious if she’ll slobber over Bernie when he finally shows up. And I wanna see if she’d slaughter Biden over Anita Hill — or will she give him the same kinda cuddly-wuddly interview she’s given all the other candidates except Moulton? I don’t think she mentioned the Correspondents’ Dinner, did she? As I watched it, the only I was looking for (but did not spot) was Rachel. Hmmmm.
