Falling

Game of Thrones “The Long Night” makes D-Day look like an NFL preseason game.

The Al Capone of Presidents is suing Deutsche Bank.

Fortunately, the Trump Crime Family loses the majority of its lawsuits.

“Senior advisor” is a great euphemism for Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Like Trump, Bernie is seething too about Biden’s union endorsements.

By taking over the labor vote, Biden really emasculates the Sanders campaign.

Arya means ūüźź

Straight on

Kirstjen¬†Nielsen’s very particular set of skills are likely to be in high demand abroad (N Korea, Turkey, Brazil, and the Philippines).

After GoT, TV will be greatly diminished, like the Elves after the destruction of the Ring of Power.

Populism is an absence of shame.

Authenticity is an identity-policing notion.

Better educated journalists might bring more seriousness to the profession.

As the kids say, white privilege won’t save Assange this time.

Nowhere fast

Maureen Dowd’s 1,536th column about the Clintons, although ostensibly about Mr Obama, is not one of her best.

Vichy Progressives have incorporated the Fox News modus operandi vis-a-vis Ms Clinton.

Game of Thrones will end with Arya on the Iron Throne with two house-broken dragons purring at her feet.

I’m beginning to think that like Mr Reagan, Mr Trump has early onset dementia. Or late onset dementia praecox.

Trigger warning

In a 1968 interview, Marcel Duchamp told Joan Bakewell that art no longer had the capacity to shock the public. Today shock is imposed on art (and all visual images), from the outside, by the professional outragetariat, thereby reducing sublime and beautiful aesthetic experiences to feelings and emotions and short-circuiting the aestheticization of life.

Dragons over King’s Landing. High Sparrow on fire. Sansa dead. Let the Game begin.

Fanfic: Carrie and Quinn foil a plot to kidnap Hodor.

Voir dire is one of the scariest things one can experience as an American citizen. One would never want to be judged by a jury made up of such peers.

One cheer for gentrification: coffeehouses and grog shops were the springboards of English greatness.

NY Republican Primary: People whose social status has been falling for decades live vicariously through the towering ego of Mr Trump. His campaign is basically following the format of reality TV. He should do well in places like Long Island, Staten Island, Buffalo, and Scores (his old haunt).

Everytime

The Cliven Bundy-style bandits terrorizing Oregon are the face of American conservatism today: lawless, thoughtless, and anti-American.

Conservative radicalization continues without abatement.

Banditry has no constitutional protection.

The Great Purge of the Labour Party is underway. Mr Benn is being fitted for the Rykov role.

Shabby treatment of the man who has made HBO millions. The last time a genius was treated this poorly was 1616.
