They're just going to rename themselves the Pederalist at this point.



Also, FPB has a great zing below, "RINOs who complained for years that the GOP needed to be more in touch with young people now hypocritically complain about Moore".

In SC in the 80s, at least, it was considered extremely redneck and skeevy for 30-somethings to date teenagers, let alone sub-16-year-olds.

How could it make him unpopular? Twitter assures me that it was a flattering article!

The Pederalist was going to be the name of my Henry Clay fanboy bicycle blog, but so much for that idea.

Peak Buzzfeed.

Not sure if this is going wrong or going right, though.

I mean I've personally seen Eli Lake feel out* someone as a potential source.

NBC is the worst. Oddly, Billy Bush is coming out as a lonely moral voice from there. Interestingly, Billy Bush's story using Trump like wax wings to rise to success is a great parable for Republicans.

This seems like a terrible way to overreact to spiking the Access Hollywood, Weinstein and other sexual harassment stories.

The Alabama Klan in 1957 was more opposed to pederasty than the Federalist in 2017.

That's a bit generous. I'm not sure if politicians even qualify as mediocre.

How to stop the next terror attack: It could well be deadlier than Port Authority terminal explosion

Since the Port Authority bomb killed exactly zero people, I think we can safely assign that a truth value of "duh".
But we all know well that the bomb could easily have gone off on a crowded platform. On a closed, packed subway car. On a bus. The device could have been more powerful than it was, more effectively designed to maim and kill by the tens or hundreds.
"Stuff could have been different than it was." Thank you, Daily News, for bringing us your unique brand of incisive, hard-hitting journalism.

That's worthy of the 2017 Roman Hruska Award for Defense of Mediocrity.

(Senator Roman Hruska gave a speech in 1970 urging the Senate to confirm G. Harrold Carswell to the Supreme Court; noting that some people had said that Carswell was a mediocre judge, Hruska basically said, "Well, there are a lot of mediocre people out there, and they're entitled to representation by a mediocre Justice.")

Redditors, too, were exposed to more posts from users who also spend time in "fringe" forums. And they saw more offensive language, including cursing and slurs, according to research Nithyanand produced as part of his work at the Data & Society think tank in New York.
I also enjoyed 'misinformation and divisive posts'. Oh no! Divisive posts!
