For those of you clamoring for tickets to “KITM Live!” in Philadelphia at Netroots Nation this week, sorry but they’ve been sold out… to Legally Blonde, the Musical. We wouldn’t be so crass to put on such a theatrical production just to take your money!

David Waldman won’t be seeing Legally Blonde, or even attending Netroots Nation this year. He instead will be rolling up his sleeves, pulling on his hip boots, and joining Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter for another day of Jeffrey Epstein latrine duty. There is a lot to dig out, so off we sail to “Pedophile Island” (actually Ephebophilia Island, part of the Chronophiliac Archipelago):

In 2002, Vicky Ward wrote a heavily censored profile on Epstein. So did Michael Wolff. For decades, lifestyles of the rich & litigious remained a topic avoided by male chief editors. Then Julie K. Brown wrote her Pulitzer-winning (If anyone had nominated it) article on then Miami prosecutor, now Trump labor secretary Alexander Acosta’s plea deal of a lifetime for Epstein. Donald Trump used to love Jeff Epstein, but now he’s not a fan. Donald still loves Alexander… for the moment. At least until someone worse for the job can be sourced. The wrong guy quits in the UK. Meanwhile, the Shadow Cabaret strip club hosts a golf tournament at Trump National.

In non-Epstein news, Obamacare has gone back to court, and has run into a court more partisan than sane. Susan Collins isn’t deeply troubled by her Kavanaugh vote, and might have her and her concerns voted out of Maine. Retired Marine combat aviator Amy McGrath raised $2.5 million in the first 24 hours of her campaign against Mitch McConnell! And—William Barr doesn’t pull his latest fast one on the judge in the Census question case.
