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?
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.
From Jacobin magazine to the Boston Review, from Naomi Klein and to the Young Sparts: everyone agrees Obama was a neolib.
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.
