Hello, everyone. It's good to be back... as we near the end of this wretched year. A nasty cold kept me out the past two days, but I'm ready to go… so let's get right to the links.
Booman Tribune: A refocus of the Russia investigation (from Clapper).
Balloon Juice: The question of who America is as a country (from Yates).
Hullabaloo: An unworkable tax bill to sabotage the federal government.
The Brad Blog: A tax scam giving Dems an opportunity to run against the rich.
Outside the Beltway: More bad signs for the GOP heading into 2018.
Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here all week.
