Re: Hot Tweets Cool Treats

Over on the magic boards, riffing on the Watchmen Pagliacci joke has been a thing for years. But this... this... this is a thing of beauty.

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

As much as I'm a fan of schadenfreude, I think this is one of those occasions where I'd actually hold off (not that she isn't scum, but there's something about people admitting profound vulnerability that short-circuits my willingness to kick them when they're down). But I do gotta say, Goth Ms. is ...

Politico: On Paul Ryan's impending departure. One way... or another. He's denying it, of course, but apparently it's an open secret among his friends and family that he wants to retire after the 2018 midterm elections. More publicly, practically everyone knows he hates being speaker and never wanted...

Re: Bogus, batshit, banal, bizarre, or bicubic: Assorted News

Here is the longform investigative report on Dan Johnson which was published this week

It is basically the long sordid history of a pathological liar, blatant racist, sower of hate, arsonist, molester, fraud of the highest order, and general snake oil salesman.

A story a bit too familiar.

A friend commented that "It's tragic that a man so clearly mentally ill committed suicide. It's even more tragic that he was a member of the party that ensures people with such conditions cannot receive the care they need."

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick



It includes Baneposting.

More soberly, it's more than a style guide, it's practically "a playbook for the alt-right" and its style is pulled from diverse named sources including both Mein Kampf and Gawker.

What a time to be alive.

Some of you may have seen this already as another bit of haha Trump is the dumbs (and sure, he is).



But I just wanted to point out Trump's error specifically is yet another sign that he is suffering from actual dementia.
