Re Tulsi Gabbard:

One number to remember: 65 million.

That’s the number of Democratic votes for HRC in 2016.

Gabbard’s Trumpesque tweet is political death warrant. As a Democrat.

She’d be a great mainstream Republican. I tend to think that’s where she’ll wind up.

Gabbard represents a “sane” version of Republicanism. That’s why Meghan McCain is smitten with her.

Gabbardistas are shattered, though. Michael Tracey is so worked up about this, he’s completely forgotten the oppression of NRA moll Maria Butina.

In calmer moments, he would surely admit that the Russo-Republican fox has no place in the Democratic Party hen house.

However, it is rather confusing when Tulsi sounds like Trump who sounds like Chomsky.

Will the King of the Cocaleros, Evo Morales, be President for Life? How many years in power are enough?

An ironic disposition frees a lot of otherwise restricted cultural detritus for legitimate aesthetic appropriation. Which is why it is good to be ironic in an age of mechanical intersectionality.

We have the largest, most influential hipster scene in world history.

Rich cocaleros love Evo.

Capital captured politics long before wikileaks, Slavoj. If you’d stopped watching Hitchcock films for a little while, you’d have noticed it.

Americans’ romance with gun violence never ceases to amaze.
