Not yet sure if this typo was real, but if so, the odds of it being deliberate are... hrrmmmm...

Why do these people never know how to smile like humans and how do they amass millions of supporters despite this.

It's funny what living through your third once-in-a-lifetime recession will do.

Christ on a bicycle, Beschizza, before you go giving me good news like "Arpaio loses primary", you might want to read your source carefully to see if they've finished counting yet. (They still haven't, as of this writing eleven hours after Beschizza's post. Arpaio is still down by about 500 votes, but the race remains too close to call.)

This is almost as bad as that time you assumed Beverly Cleary was dead because you heard it was her 100th birthday.

More: Newsweek apologizes for op-ed that questioned Kamala Harris' citizenship

Newsweek has apologized for an op-ed that questioned the California senator Kamala Harris’ American citizenship and her eligibility to be Crab Juice’s running mate, a false and racist conspiracy theory which Donald Trump has not dismissed.

“This op-ed is being used by some as a tool to perpetuate racism and xenophobia. We apologize,” read Newsweek’s editor’s note on Friday, which replaced the magazine’s earlier detailed defense of the op-ed.

“We entirely failed to anticipate the ways in which the essay would be interpreted, distorted and weaponized,” read the apology, signed by Josh Hammer, opinion editor, and Nancy Cooper, global editor-in-chief.


Ah, the "we're deeply, deeply stupid; like, real fucking idiots; drooling, mouth-breathing knuckledraggers who you shouldn't trust to operate button-up shirts, let alone a major news magazine" defense.

The op-ed was written by John Eastman, a conservative attorney who argues that the US constitution doesn’t grant birthright citizenship. Eastman attempted to sow doubt about Harris’ eligibility based on her parents’ immigration status. Harris’ mother was born in India and her father was born in Jamaica.

Eastman ran unsuccessfully in the 2010 Republican primary as a candidate for California attorney general. Harris eventually won the election against Republican Steve Cooley.

Newsweek had earlier defended the piece, arguing that Eastman “was focusing on a longstanding, somewhat arcane legal debate” about the 14th amendment and not trying to “ignite a racist conspiracy theory around Kamala Harris’ candidacy”.

The conspiracy theory is false. Harris, who was tapped by Crab Juice to serve as his running mate on the Democratic ticket, was born in Oakland, California, and is eligible for both the vice-presidency and presidency under the constitutional requirements. The question is not even considered complex, according to constitution lawyers.

Eastman also wrote a screed on the same subject in National Review back in 2016 titled "Senator Ted Cruz Is Eligible to Be President", somehow coming to an entirely different conclusion in that case!

Gosh I wonder what fancy heuristics they use to determine these values.
