Yes. It was amazing. I may go see it again this weekend in 3D, because it was that good and had that much to unpack.

Part of the problem is that there's never been a full, public accounting of what happened.

We know that Russians used social media to spread misinformation, primarily to conservatives, for the purposes of at least diminishing Hillary Clinton.

We know that members of the administration have had an inordinately high number of contacts with Russian officials both during the campaign and afterwards, and have lied about it.

The rank partisanship of the intelligence and judiciary committees in the House and Senate, along with the classified information the American people haven't been party to, has made it nearly impossible to figure out what a best-case and worst-case scenario looks like.

At this point, a best-case scenario is a group of political neophytes were approached by agents of the Russian government who provided them with little or nothing, but that had some mutually shared policy goals, and that the cover-up was ultimately worse than the crime itself.

Worst-case scenario is that the Trump campaign was co-opted by the Russians almost from the get-go, that multiple members of the Administration are compromised, and that through Trump an entire political party has been co-opted into the Russian sphere of influence.

What is obvious that the GOP has grown so nakedly political and craven that there is zero chance the details of Russian involvement in the 2016 election and beyond will ever get a fair shake in Congress, so long as they're in charge.

If we hope to separate fact from fiction, to parse out the Louise Mench's of the world, we need a Democratic Congress.

Forking. Bullshirt.

It's not spring until we get monsoons to clean off the sidewalks from all the inconsiderate assholes that don't curb their dogs.

I don't, but that's only because I've lacked the skill, knowledge, and resources to make an Iron Man suit.

Now that I pretty much am a Homeless Man's Tony Stark, well...
