Baby Yoda's just fiddling with the radio (meme alert)

There's a scene in the fourth episode of The Mandalorian where the unnamed child (aka Baby Yoda) is literally pushing Mando's buttons, well, the buttons on his ship anyway.

Gonez is apparently a fan of Mr. Astley and kind of freaked when the pop artist started dancing with him. Here's what it looked like from behind the scenes:

FEC Is On A (Rick) Roll

So on Wednesday, TPM’s Allegra Kirkland received a tip from a Federal Election Commission staffer: Buried in a recently published FEC rule-making document about requiring online ads to disclose who’s behind them, said the staffer, is an “Easter egg.” Allegra was getting the tip, the staffer said, because she was the only reporter who correctly noted that the FEC’s recent disclosure that it’ll start looking into whether the NRA received Russian money to help Trump was little more than a standa...
