Takt

Working the impeachment beat must be extremely frustrating for journalists, especially if one acts as if Pelosi doesn’t exist.

Re Dorian and Alabama: Trump is rolling around in his own scat.

Oh Moon of Alabama
We now must say goodbye
We’ve lost our good old mama
And must have whisky, oh, you know why.

A sharpie and a dull brain make nonsense.

Trump’s dementia undermines whatever credibility he had with pundits and Susan Sarandon.

Why are intelligent people responding to the natterings of a man afflicted with dementia praecox?

WaPo has taken possession of what’s left of Donald Trump’s mind.

Dorian, et. al target climate change denying states. The Wrath of God, natural selection, or Die List der Vernunft?

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?

Ballad of lemons

Trump’s former associates should fear Putin’s ire more. Trump retaliates with childish nicknames; Putin uses chemical weapons.

The White House released a picture of a Putin puppet and opioid addict playing golf.

One can’t be a Republican politician without also being a hypocrite. What this lot have added to their list of official positions is “Russian agent.”

Sarah Sanders’ soul is predestined for the hot place for lying like the Devil.

Journalists are not astute thinkers.

They’re limited by very short term thinking (tomorrow’s front page, tomorrow’s A block) and an obsession for the “scoop” as opposed to the truth. Big news events like Russia-Trump collusion are simply beyond their pay grade.

In 50 years, no one will know who Brian Leiter was.

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.

Don’t lose your mind

Mr Carson is the James Frey of the Republican presidential campaign. The fact that he’s a fabricator makes him the ideal Republican candidate.

Is this the Mein Trumpf moment of the Republican campaign?

The POTUS has put an end to the Republicans’ Keystone pipe dream.

Twitter is teetering because we’ve reached peak outrage.

The problem is Twitter is lousy with journalists.

By design

Death to comic sans.

Frakturtyp keeps the rabble out.

Nigella Lawson’s superstar is brighter than ever. The nasty servants only elevated her in the public’s eye.

It’s sad to see that Steve McQueen is turning into Tyler Perry.

Critics find anything boring when they can’t turn it into a fake controversy. Boring is the death of journalism.
