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.

How will China’s economy develop without property theft?
The professional outragetariat lost interest in Howard Schultz, shifting its ire to Biden when he announced.
The only person who will be genuinely disappointed by Trump’s downfall is Glenn Greenwald.
Hope Hicks will testify. Finally, Trump’s pillow talk will be made public.
Bernie’s revised Gotha Programme is unlikely to reach beyond his DSA and SWP base.
Re the US Women’s National Soccer Team: envy of women’s enjoyment is behind all the pearl clutching over goal celebrations.
Next the Alabama House will vote to reinstitute slavery.
The biggest loser today is Assange. He looks like an immense schmuck.
Glenn Greenwald is proof of the old adage that if you go far enough to the left, you wind up on the right.
Sarah Sanders lied. She’s destined for the hot place anyway.
Trump is severely damaged goods, prone to unhinged actions. Keep him in place and the Dems might even flip the Senate.
Nets allowed Philly to humiliate an entire borough.
Sarah Sanders (Ouachita Baptist University Class of 2004) says “I don’t think Congress — particularly not this group of congressmen and women — are smart enough to look through the thousands of pages that I would assume that President Trump’s taxes will be.”
It’s nice that Bernie Sanders took time out from bashing a woman (Neera Tanden) to brag about himself (book sales).
Sanders is playing the victim card, just as his incelish Berniebros do. His narcissism is trending towards the authoritarianism of his Berniebros.
Glenn Greenwald has lost his best bros to defection (Snowden) and incarceration (Assange).
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?

It’s confirmed: peak (Glenn) Greenwald has been reached.
This is not the first death threat issued by the NRA and not the last.
Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning lived on cheap beer and cigarettes in the 1930s and 40s.
Seumas Milne wrote a refreshing column about the conflict in the Ukraine. Mr Milne usually blames all conflict on the use of drones. As one of Putin’s allies, Mr Snowden, like Mr Milne, would undoubtedly agree about the attractiveness of a grasping Russian neo-Empire.
Crimea is small potatoes, which shows the desperation of the creaky Russian Bear.
Putin is the model of a Chris Christie presidency.
The “Vicar of Christ” opposes idealisation.
It will be fun to watch the media spin out numerous “narratives” on Bill de Blasio’s approval %. The role of the journalist is to supply several narratives, even if contradictory and preferably on the basis of interviews with “unnamed sources.”
Will Glenn Greenwald’s new media empire become the TMZ of the Libertarian International?
Congressperson Michele Bachmann scolded “the Jews” for selling out Israel (i.e., by voting for Obama). She doesn’t understand that the Rapture is just a distraction from Benghazi.
