Walk this world

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 However, most of those guys have departed, and have been replaced by the children of Palin and Trump.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.

Crawl away

It’s time for a second Great Migration out of the Jane Crow south.

Trump’s Traveling Nuremberg Rally moves to the Lincoln Memorial for July 4th. Making the Lincoln Memorial a “no go zone.”

Trump stokes the lumpens’ cultural ressentiment and class envy of their betters for his own benefit.

His mob lawyer cancelled his trip to Ukraine.

Someone should tell Chelsea Manning there’s no point in covering for Assange any longer.

Outrage is the dominant cultural mood. Or at least one or two candidates think it is and seek to capitalize on it.

Bernie is not a contender in any southern state. Nonetheless, his 30+ point deficit to Biden in South Carolina shows the significant damage that has been inflicted on his campaign.

Ocean

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?

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 🐐

Spice of choice

Cold cheeseburgers, fake gold candelabras, and a Russian mole were not enticing to the Virginia men’s basketball team.

Conspiracy theorists do hyperbole better than anyone else.

Now that Oliver North is back in the news, it’s a good time to remember Fawn Hall. She was to perms what Jared Leto is to manbuns.

But back to Oliver North. Pictures of Wayne LaPierre in bondagewear certainly gives him leverage.

Maria Butina went through the old male NRA leaders quicker than Metamucil.

Celebrity criticism isn’t real criticism. It is a conduit of the entertainment-industrial complex.

There’s nothing to stop anyone from giving inaccurate responses to census questions. It’s one way to disrupt biopolitics.

Put statues of William Tecumseh Sherman in every southern city, town, and village.

We really don’t celebrate the burning of Atlanta enough.

Biden raised $6.3M in 24 hours. Cue the compulsory outrage from the Justice Democrats.

Waiting for a sign

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.

Or not.

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.

Democratic convention, Act 3

Before it begins:

It’s nice of the Republican’s “law and order” nominee to reveal the Putin-Snowden-Assange-Trump axis. However, he can expect a visit from the FBI.

Mr Trump has said he could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue and not lose any votes. Now he’s saying he can suborn espionage from a foreign government and get away with it.

Many of Mr Trump’s supporters share his bromance with the Russian strongman.

Mr Assange may have given the UK government a legitimate legal reason to extradite him to the US.

Well played, Jules.

The VPOTUS states the obvious that Mr Trump has no clue.

He closes with “We’re America!” Riveting!

Mr Bloomberg just locked down independent voters for Ms Clinton by suggesting Mr Trump is incompetent and possibly insane. Harsh words from one billionaire to another.

Tim Kaine speaks in Spanish. Mr Trump tweets in support of his deportation.

The POTUS calls Mr Trump a home-grown demagogue.

Mic drop.

POTUS and Clinton embrace.

It’s over.
