D. C. B. A.-25

Bernie stans are laughable caricatures.

MAGAts are simply debased human beings.

Neoliberalism will prevail because today’s national populists are largely stupid and violent, more prone to turn on each other than on whatever conspiratorial enemy of the moment that is their fixation.

Bern’s net worth is the least of his problems.

The Devil is more likely to answer Franklin Graham’s prayers.

At least Meghan McCain is open in her defense of the only thing that gives her a platform: her last name. Without this last name, she would be nothing.

It’s hard to get worked up about rich people on a deadly thrill climb.

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.

Walk this world

Eurovision is what the recent Met gala should have been.

Détournement has a temporary effect, nothing more.

Will Iran use children on the front line again as it did in its war with Iraq?

Westboro were MAGAts before there were MAGAts. Proto-MAGAts.

Fox News is a boutique for paranoid style politics and its adherents. There’s no need for Democrats to venture into a space that is impervious to reason.

Bernie is strapped for cash due to poor fundraising. Progs should jump to Warren, who is a better candidate than Sanders (less baggage and, obviously, no misogynistic following).

Biden is assuming that once Trump is out, Senate Republicans will have no interest in protecting his “legacy.” A better argument is that his coattails will be superior to those of non-Democrat Sanders (hence, flipping the Senate).

In reality, Biden has worked with the other guys (even during the Obama era). However, most of those guys have departed, and have been replaced by the children of Palin and Trump.

The US is filled with people who believe the Second Amendment gives them the right to be killed by a gun. They will never relinquish this right.

The morning sad

A nice Watergate-style break-in at the IRS might work.

Mother Pence only tithes to God.

What’s with the circuses (Zizek and the alt-right Canuck, Gay and Hoff Sommers)? Just because Twain did it doesn’t make it right.

How much dosh did Zizek make for his performance art sketch?

Bernie is an establishment candidate now (Warren is the insurgent) and Warren has a gender disadvantage.

Warren offers specifics and feasible solutions. Bernie offers utopian critique and egotism.

“Easter worshippers” apparently prefer to be called “Easter fetishists.”

Rudy Giuliani’s incredibly disappearing neck is a thing of wonder.

If Satan had a daughter, she would be Sarah Sanders.

Raindrops on roses

Soon Trump will be listed as “John No 1” on an indictment.

A family that does outcall together, stays together.

Dan Bongino and R Kelly are textbook cases of masculine hysteria.

Rep. Omar despises Obama as much as Trump does.

What team does Rep. Omar play for? (loyalty card alert)

Casual antisemitism is morally corrosive. It has to be called out (as in the case of Rep. Omar).

One would think that any newbie in a safe Democratic seat who has any weakness will be primaried. The risk reward ratio for a challenger is quite favorable.

The Devil went down to … Alabama.

Who would line up to receive a Bible signed by the Devil?

Like the Bible in The Ninth Gate.

The Smiting has got to be the best part about being God.

Chelsea Manning can share stories about Assange with Maria Butina in lockup.

Re Manafort: without mandatory sentences, sentencing is discretionary. And no one wants mandatory sentences, which take away the discretion of judges.

Re US Women’s National Soccer Team’s gender discrimination lawsuit: Why even field a men’s team that has never won anything? Put all the money into women’s football and collect more trophies.

Kylie is obviously the best KardashJennerian.

I live for my dream and a pocket full of gold

The Rapture won’t make poor people richer. Mike Pence won’t tell you that, though.

Methodism is backsliding into spiritual backwardness.

Isn’t Glenn Greenwald a Fox News contributor now?

Good news: this is last time Trump will have the freedom to attend CPAC.

Fact checking a born liar is like Sisyphus rolling a greased rock.

Trump is Melania’s anchor baby daddy.

Anti-vaxx nutters are also swivel-eyed national populists.

Good news: this is the last time Bernie Sanders will run for president.

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.
