Ramble on

Libertarianism is the political boutique tendency.

Only naive EFF types thought the “web” could ever be non-toxic.

Elisabeth Moss needs to come under more scrutiny.

Bernie was one of the few New Left who didn’t break with the CCCP. He did march with Dr King, though.

Xenophobia and garden variety cultural ressentiment: the elixir of populism.

The question is whether populist outrage, as channeled by Sanders, is a winning strategy? Didn’t work for him in 2016 and it’s not working for him so far for 2020.

Bern’s anger-based politics has him in danger of slipping behind Warren.

D’Souza is another example of why it isn’t good to give felons the franchise. (see Flynn, Manafort, Limbaugh).

Für uns, gibts nicht.

I hope the Democratic candidates will address the new Jane Crow laws that have popped up in MAGAstates (Ohio, Georgia, and Alabama).

Trump is buying votes again.

Men are the weaker sex.

In 2016, pundits assessed Biden as the most consequential (in a positive way) VP in history. Now pundits are rewriting their own history re Biden.

Nature is, frankly, hostile.

Ben Shapiro is another alt-right meathead with a massive following in prisons.

Let’s end all the whatabouts: there’s only one Notre-Dame de Paris.

If people in red states are OK with promiscuous gun laws, then why should anyone care when the laws enable fresh massacres there?

Is that all there is?

Sarah Sanders (Ouachita Baptist University Class of 2004) says “I don’t think Congress — particularly not this group of congressmen and women — are smart enough to look through the thousands of pages that I would assume that President Trump’s taxes will be.”

It’s nice that Bernie Sanders took time out from bashing a woman (Neera Tanden) to brag about himself (book sales).

Sanders is playing the victim card, just as his incelish Berniebros do. His narcissism is trending towards the authoritarianism of his Berniebros.

Glenn Greenwald has lost his best bros to defection (Snowden) and incarceration (Assange).

Conservative America was always rancid.

It will be a miracle if Trump doesn’t meet Ethel Rosenberg’s fate.

Don Jr. is the Sonny Corleone of the Trump Crime Family.

Julian Assange’s Russian peeps are coming for Chelsea Manning.

As Assange’s patsy, Manning had no choice but to cooperate. While the celebrity hacktivist/GRU agent dined on gourmet empanadas in a posh Knightsbridge townhouse, Manning was locked up in a military prison, subsisting on a diet of baked beans and Wonder Bread.

I knew the MyPillow guy was a whack job.

AOC was certainly better prepared, more focused, and more composed than Tlaib.

Artists have no responsibility to do anything but make art. This autonomy is precious and should not be sacrificed for philistine purposes.

Great divide: revisited

That smug MAGAboy could be your son or your brother. It could be Squi.

New video footage of the MAGAmob looks like a trailer for a Lord of the Flies remake.

The harassment of the Native American gent counts as community service or “civic engagement” for Catholic school kids.

The MAGAboy hired a PR firm, which skillfully employed the MAGA play book: deny, expand attack, blame media, repeat.

Swastika, Klan 700 tc bed sheet, and MAGAcap: emblems of conservative thought.

Pence and Mother are dump truck Christians (i.e., what’s left of Christianity after one dumps all the morality out of it).

What a terrible mob lawyer Giuliani is.

Kamala Harris declared her candidacy for POTUS. It will be interesting to see how Berniebros play this. With Clinton, they fell back on misogyny. With Harris, will they dare use race? How far will they go for the sake of Sanders’ “revolution”?

RE the Sorkin-AOC kerfuffle: responding to every criticism is something a young person would do.
