Eurovision is what the recent Met gala should have been.
Détournement has a temporary effect, nothing more.
Will Iran use children on the front line again as it did in its war with Iraq?
Westboro were MAGAts before there were MAGAts. Proto-MAGAts.
Fox News is a boutique for paranoid style politics and its adherents. There’s no need for Democrats to venture into a space that is impervious to reason.
Bernie is strapped for cash due to poor fundraising. Progs should jump to Warren, who is a better candidate than Sanders (less baggage and, obviously, no misogynistic following).
Biden is assuming that once Trump is out, Senate Republicans will have no interest in protecting his “legacy.” A better argument is that his coattails will be superior to those of non-Democrat Sanders (hence, flipping the Senate).
In reality, Biden has worked with the other guys (even during the Obama era). However, most of those guys have departed, and have been replaced by the children of Palin and Trump.
The US is filled with people who believe the Second Amendment gives them the right to be killed by a gun. They will never relinquish this right.
I hope the Democratic candidates will address the new Jane Crow laws that have popped up in MAGAstates (Ohio, Georgia, and Alabama).
Trump is buying votes again.
Men are the weaker sex.
In 2016, pundits assessed Biden as the most consequential (in a positive way) VP in history. Now pundits are rewriting their own history re Biden.
Nature is, frankly, hostile.
Ben Shapiro is another alt-right meathead with a massive following in prisons.
Let’s end all the whatabouts: there’s only one Notre-Dame de Paris.
If people in red states are OK with promiscuous gun laws, then why should anyone care when the laws enable fresh massacres there?
New Poll: A very old man trails an old man in Iowa.
Too bad journalists didn’t anticipate the impact of social media on the communication tactics of politicians, who can reach the audience w/o unfiltering and w/o the sometimes suspect “narratives” of profit seeking news corps. Perhaps they’ll find new ways to report.
When it comes to journalism, verifiability is good. So is neutrality.
Journalists are in no position to decide which side is more legitimate, and have no means of justifying their judgment. Let the reader decide.
No one wants a pre-digested version of reality.
Captain Marvel is better than the comic book film that was nominated for Best Picture.
Only arms manufacturers want teachers to be strapped.
Fox News is indistinguishable from RT. They share the same business model.
I wonder if the Mar-a-Lago Madame was present when Trump held a “summit” with China’s Xi in 2017.
Frontality is passé.
Sadly, gun ownership in America has gone from being a hobby to an addiction. Promiscuous gun laws only promote the addiction.
The 2nd amendment was especially important in areas of the new nation where slaves outnumbered free persons.
Neither Brexit nor Trump nor Sanders will/would fix the economy. But false hopes die hard.
It’s not news that journalism thrives on conflict. It’s not the business of journalism to create consensus. However, it should be the business of journalism to offer reality-based reportage.
An Arizona grandfather has been arrested and accused of leaving his five-year-old granddaughter alone in the desert with a loaded and cocked .45-caliber handgun and the instruction to “shoot any bad guys,” authorities said on Monday.
Rater was later found by deputies at a local feed store with a bar. He admitted to leaving the girl alone in the desert with the gun while he went for a few drinks and a cheeseburger. He told deputies he left the girl behind after she complained she couldn’t walk anymore.
From Donald Trump to this cheeseburger eating granddad, Americans are spoofing themselves these days, there’s no need for The Onion.
Once again: Arizona is Texas-lite.
The Cardigans are the greatest band from Sweden. They perfected Euro emo, which is superior to the output of bands like Dashboard Confessional and Taking Back Sunday. The latter gave rise to the practice of wearing ill fitting sweaters and tight jeans, of crying, writing poetry, then crying again about having written terrible poetry.
