Nuns have no fun

The First Amendment will not be undermined by having Assange under oath.

My pronouns: I. Me. Mine.

Pelosi emasculated Trump yesterday.

What was really embarrassing was the geriatric Kudlow kowtowing to Trump like a cabana boy.

When Trump hired Don Giuliani as his TV lawyer, he thought he was getting Tom Hagen. What he got instead was Fredo.

The disaster of Naomi Wolf’s new book could have been averted. Such is the risk of going to a trade publisher rather than an academic publisher (which has more rigorous review processes).

Drake has become the new Nickelback.

Freak

It will be nice to hear from Assange under oath, not shouting from the balcony of his former posh Knightsbridge townhouse.

Trump could always pardon Assange as quid pro quo for the Clinton emails. Or Putin might bail him out.

It’s not like Assange is a poor black or brown defendant. He’ll be well represented in court and outside it by celebrities like Pam Anderson and Susan Sarandon. He’s basically a white collar defendant.

Given that Assange disdains the rule of law, it will be interesting to see if he avails himself of “rights” protected by it.

Pelosi treats Trump like an invalid.

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.

Barr:Trump::Stalin:Vyshinsky

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.

Straight on

Kirstjen Nielsen’s very particular set of skills are likely to be in high demand abroad (N Korea, Turkey, Brazil, and the Philippines).

After GoT, TV will be greatly diminished, like the Elves after the destruction of the Ring of Power.

Populism is an absence of shame.

Authenticity is an identity-policing notion.

Better educated journalists might bring more seriousness to the profession.

As the kids say, white privilege won’t save Assange this time.

As long as journalists don’t hack passwords or assault women they’ll be fine.

I’m glad Trump acknowledges the legitimacy of sanctuary cities.

Never trust a one-eyed raven.

Watching Tavares break Chara’s ankles was priceless.

Incels don’t understand science.

Bernie Sanders is polling at 16% in Iowa. That’s some “revolution.”

There will be an answer

Julian Assange might be evicted from his posh Knightsbridge townhouse. Will he find refuge in Russia with Snowden and Yanukovych?

As Nietzsche said of Assange: Etwas stinkt.

The notion of “hidden histories” is a branding device.

Heathers is the best pop film of the 80s.

Maduro is a thug but Guaidó isn’t exactly World Spirit on horseback.
