Hello Birdies, I see we need a round up of news and an open thread. I’m updating last night’s post. Jane Sanders was on Blitzer’s Show.

While TPW has two new excellent posts up by Subir (please read them and make comments!), I’m creating an open thread. Bernie slammed Trump on his budget proposal this afternoon and had the ranking Budget member from Congress, John Yarmuth, join him in the presser.

I’ve been mumbling about it here, but I want folks in the Indie media, particularly those with investigative reporting and punditry that is progressive liberal left, to hopefully see this via tags.

Today is Derby Day…but there’s other news and some levity as well. We’ll start with Lee Camp, who with comedic talent, gives us the rundown of this past week’s news in his show, Redacted Tonight.
