Fixing a hole

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.

I see you

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.

Is that all there is?

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).

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.

For all we know

Freedom is merely formal if it isn’t accompanied by economic security. This is the sober reality facing an independent Scotland.

Plebiscites are questionable as a democratic procedure, especially if the outcome is decided by a simple majority rather than a supermajority (two-thirds).

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.

How many more times

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.

I’d like to believe it is possible to oppose military intervention in Syria and for that opposition to be grounded in arguments that are based in reality. One either believes the evidence and agrees with the mission or one doesn’t. The rest is emotional detritus. We can spend decades litigating US foreign policy. I happen to think the use of chemical weapons has to be addressed.

The quality of the debate would be elevated if US journalists would take the matter seriously rather than merely calculating the odds of domestic political gain and loss. At this point, they’ve shown themselves to be a rather sad lot. It’s as if sports journalism has taken over the front page.

Is Žižek’s jouissance our own?

Something like this happened in The Wire.

The Apple model will be design forward. This looks like a clunky Swatch knock off.

Whenever I see a Glenn Greenwald piece, I think of Geraldo Rivera.
