I don’t know if Glenn Beck is really talking about what he sounds like he’s talking about here. As I read it, he was speaking hypothetically, like “what do we do if?…” The sentiment, however, is common enough to be talked of. Sometimes people feel like killing a President. But it’s been a while since … More Assassination is Not Your Friend
Jonah Goldberg, explaining why he’s not voting Trump. This is what I’ve been saying to myself for the last month or so. I don’t owe the GOP my vote. They don’t own my franchise, I do. I not only have the right, I have the duty as a citizen not to give my legal assent to … More “I Don’t Work for the G-d-Damn GOP”
Derp. I get what he was trying to say, but even then, his statement isn’t right. Ugliness, like beauty, is comparatively rare.

And apparently the experience of making a series based on a doomed Spartan warrior bloodily defying the Gods has made him a grumpy feminist who hates prom (don’t they all?) Now, the first tweet … More When Did the Left Lose its Goddamn Mind? or, David Jaffe is a Glorious Winged Twit
Share and Enjoy. So the question becomes, what are Republicans to do with a Republican party that would allow a progressive populist boasting Mondale’s trade policy and McGovern foreign policy — that is, a leftist Democrat that looks for all the world like an angry and retouched Circus Peanut — to carry its flag? And … More Jeff Goldstein: Let the GOP Go the Way of the Whigs. Time for a New Party.
Yes, I changed the theme again. I wanted some red. I used to have a Blogger blog devoted solely to politics, Revolutionary Nonsense. It’s been five years since I wrote anything there, but when the primary campaign produces its inevitable disappointment, I occasionally meander over there to see if anything from the time when I pretended I was … More And Now, Some Throwback Political Dudgeon
