    I can't believe that we have to argue about birth control in 2018. Here's what's at stake for women's reproductive freedom in the fight for the Supreme Court.

    Sorry, Elizabeth. No one cares about Women's birth control and no one cares about Puerto Rico. Try again.

    Is there anything about you that isn't still grounded in the 60s and 70s?

    I suppose your fascination with Twitter, though that still strikes me as being populated by old farts and marketing people trying to part them from their money.

    There's a difference between studying history and being stuck in the past.

    I don't know UNO. But I promise you he has a better sense of history than all R presidents of this generation: W (Iraq) and Trump (Smoot Hawley).

    Jim Jordan is running for House speaker. He's a rising star conservative but is accused of ignoring sexual abuse as a college wrestling coach.

    OK everyone, informal poll time. I was watching Jeopardy last night and the question was basically how many members of Congress are there? I answered 535, but the answer they took was 435. Would I have had a beef if I were a contestant on the show because they specifically said Congress not the House?

    Intuitively its 535 and wiki has it at 535 'voting members'.

    I'd have to re-read the question but to me it was clear they meant House and I went with 435.
