The Rundown-Thurs 3/29: Stifling political speech in Colorado

While I have some concerns that the bureaucratic machine might chew up Admiral Ronny Jackson who really doesn't have that kind of leadership experience, since I'm the son of two US Navy doctors, I'm cheering for Jackson every step of the way as he takes on the challenge of leading the Veterans Administration after the overdue firing of David Shulkin.

A lot of folks, esp our friends at Fox, are loving the fact that there's a successful (so far) sitcom that isn't all about liberals and 'alternative lifestyle' characters and lives that most of us can't relate to. I'm not a huge Roseanne fan, but this show is quite welcome.

The Institute for Free Speech has done a study of all 50 states' freedom of political speech based on the ability of individuals and companies and political parties to contribute the the candidates of our choice. Colorado got an F as one of the very worst states in the nation when it comes to this kind of freedom. I've been talking about this for a while. We'll talk with David Keating of ISF about their study.

Another court is allowing an anti-Trump lawsuit to go forward. I think a higher court will toss this lawsuit which involves whether President Trump's DC hotel has an unfair competitive advantage over nearby DC and Maryland hotels because of customer wanting to curry favor with the president.
