Oh, to have been a fly on the wall in Elizabeth Warren's house as people went crazy over the prospect of Oprah 2020. I can only imagine Warren's reaction. Did she yell at the TV? Mutter under her breath? Immediately call her media consultant in panic? We know the slight got to her. By midweek she was making the rounds on cable.

Establishment Republicans in Illinois have been working overtime trying to tamp down the idea that Gov. Bruce Rauner signed legislation making Illinois a sanctuary state. Unfortunately, the language of the statute is clear -- state and local law enforcement is hindered from working with federal law enforcement to enforce federal immigration laws.

In a high tax state that's bankrupt and losing jobs and residents, one might think that our government officials would have better things to do than legalizing marijuana for recreational use. And one would be wrong. Especially when taxing marijuana is seen as yet another source of revenue for their almost bankrupt tax coffers.
