Re: The son of "What the hell are YOU staring at?"

Promising Young Woman is amazing. The writers tease and toy but deliver on everything, and work in some artistic shots that don't take away from the story.

At one point the plot goes to a place where it seems like the character's arc can't progress...and then they deliver.

No, we already had this thread and then Thoreau started the sandwich thread.

That's fair. But the rioters were definitely working for Sharkey, not Sauron.

I guess I'm just not willing to get my hopes up about McConnell. It's fucking Mitch McConnell. Same here. I'm just saying he has no reason to have personal political fear of Trump. As dark and machiavellian as he is, he seems to be a party man. If the base would punish his caucus then he might not ...

McConnell knows which way the wind is blowing. But which way is the wind blowing? Dumbshit knuckle-dragging Trumpanzee Confederates vote in Team Red primaries. That is quite literally the only thing that Red politicians care about. Nobody in his caucus can afford to offend those stupid sacks of shit.

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

Ivanka is most like daddy in wanting to run in elite circles and be invited to the right parties. And, like daddy, the elites want nothing to do with her. The sad irony (for her) is that prior to 2016 the elites seemed to be OK with her. I'm sure some of them didn't like her, but it's probably the ...

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

The WaPo asked 14 people to make some bold suggestions for new policies that Biden should pursue. He won't act on this, but I'm glad that they included a John McWhorter piece arguing for drug legalization.

Re: Orange is the new President

Interesting take on Trump and the people around him, with a bit of geekery thrown in: Why is anyone devoted to Trump, willing to endure working for him?

Welcome back!

Viking Moose showed up briefly to share the sad news about Mr. Steven Crane, but I don't think he's stuck around. Search parties are out there looking for him, but it's Day 69 and no signs of him.
