Precap of News Certain to Occur in 2017

Thanks to Donald Trump and the Chicago Cubs my outlandish predictions for 2016 were eclipsed by, of all things, reality. Worse, the fine art of fake news was commandeered by demons who used it for social and political gain--something my colleagues and I would never have dreamed possible.

Republicans are the Masters of Not Getting Over Things

And now a few choice words for all Republicans advising Democrats to "stop whining about the election and get over it." Oh, really.

Six Things We Need to Know About the Trump-Russia Connection

The latest intelligence revelations about Russia's cyberpush for Donald Trump are so persuasive that even congressional Republican leaders have been compelled to take notice.
