Nowhere near

Trump’s 2016 promise to bring the troops home won him accolades from disappointed Berniebros/brosettes, who said HRC was an imperialist warmonger ala Kissinger.

The bros/brosettes are silent about Trump now, but still maintain he was better than Clinton in their tweetstreams.

Drones are not a topic of polite conversation unless it turns to the topic of Amazon delivering the Collected Works of Lenin via airborne tech.

Such is life’s irony.

Imagine Cotton Mather or Torquemada with facial recognition technology. A truly terrifying thing.

Goldens represent bourgeois/suburban respectability; German shepherds are working class canines; mutts are the surplus army of canines (i.e., lumpenproles).

Biden was bashed for saying he got things done with Dixiecrats of yore.

I doubt anti-black/anti-brown proles can become a key demographic within a Warren or Sanders “coalition” without extreme dialectical massaging.

To mix OK Boomer and OK Millennial metaphors: Bern is soft on white supremacy.

Sadly, Bern failed to integrate Burlington schools while he was mayor.

Why is Bernie’s surrogate Cardi B selling product for a billion dollar corporation (Pepsico)?

Re Warren: A century ago, unions fought to limit the workday to 8 hours.

What’s the justification for keeping children in school for 10 hours? (as per Warren’s plan).

Fat man

Bernie Sanders is disgusted by Bloomberg’s spending. Is Bern disgusted by the $2.5 million Bloomberg spent to elect gun reform Democrats in VA? Oh wait. Bern voted FOR the NRA and gun manufacturers.

The election is a referendum on Trump. Only the pundit class thinks it’s about something else.

Trump embodies the political and moral depravity of the Republican Party post-1965. He’s a terrific spectacle.

Trump’s handing out participation trophies now (to Jon Voight).

John Bolton is back on Twitter. Old porn stach is a welcome reminder of earlier, more decadent times.

Jacobin magazine says the all woman moderator panel at the recent debate was a defeat for feminism.

Indeed. Better to have male moderators pose bloviating questions about Evo Morales than to have female moderators pose serious questions about the defense of reproductive rights which matter to the Democratic Party electorate.

The working class is no longer all that. The shift from a production to a consumption economy means “class” means buying power and lifestyle, not what happens at the point of production.

Putin is behind the current chaos, for sure.

The next crisis will be caused by Glenn Greenwald.

Only Michael Tracey is more livid at Fiona Hill than Gym Jordan.

Only Michael Tracey is more upset than Trump at the news coverage of Ukrainegate hearings.

If Mike Pompeo rolled down a mountain, he would cause a landslide.

How will China’s economy develop without property theft?

St Stephen

Body Void is what Tool would sound like if Maynard James Keenan were to fully embrace Satan.

Farmers who voted for Trump probably should go out of business.

Clinton’s server made Trump commit treason.

William Barr  is Trump’s used political condom.

Don Giuliani made Ukraine an offer it couldn’t refuse.

Impeachment hearings will suck all the media’s attention away from the Democratic candidates.

Lewinsky and Tripp are bound together for all time.

It’s definitely going to be more difficult for journalists to get the public worked up about the killing of journalists when they go out of their way to out a whistleblower under death threat from the POTUS.

I can’t see any rational labor union backing Sanders under any circumstance.

Also, Bernie hates Oprah (billionaire).

Re Jacobin magazine: Having exhausted the attack on Warren (whom Bern trails), another female target is located in Harris (who barely registers a pulse in the polls).

Nuns have no fun

The First Amendment will not be undermined by having Assange under oath.

My pronouns: I. Me. Mine.

Pelosi emasculated Trump yesterday.

What was really embarrassing was the geriatric Kudlow kowtowing to Trump like a cabana boy.

When Trump hired Don Giuliani as his TV lawyer, he thought he was getting Tom Hagen. What he got instead was Fredo.

The disaster of Naomi Wolf’s new book could have been averted. Such is the risk of going to a trade publisher rather than an academic publisher (which has more rigorous review processes).

Drake has become the new Nickelback.

Corners of your mind

Trump says he’s transparent.

If transparent means openly corrupt, then yes.

If transparent means clearly insane, then yes.

10,000 bleats and tweets from AOC won’t do to Trump what Pelosi did today.

Pelosi also treated Kellyanne Conway as The Help.

Ben Carson doesn’t know REO Speedwagon.

Eminem was one of the first to turn on Moby, long before the professional outragetariat found him to be a monster today.

People question Bernie Sanders’ hair, but hair is always tousled because he just arrived from marching with Dr King.

Socialism: a nineteenth-century ideology premised, like capitalism, on a fossil fuel based economy.

From grift to graft: the story of the Trump presidency.

Trump has a tendency to fire people after they’ve resigned.

“My relationship with the leaders of Europe is as good as my relationship to Ivana, Marla, Stormy, and Maria Butina.” – DJT

Trump watches RT as much as he watches Fox News.

Putin’s investment is paying off.

If you look closely, you can see Putin’s fingers moving Trump’s lips.

Pro-reality articles are by definition anti-Trump.

Muskrat love was not legal in 38 states in 1976.

I was a little bit busy.” That’s says it all about Sanders. He’ll never recover from this. Could be his political epitaph.
