I work in DC and, for the last two years or so, I can confirm that MAGA hats in this city are almost exclusively worn by middle and high school boys on field trips. They seem to be the only ones stupid and bold enough to not realize that it’s basically a sign that says, “I’m a racist asshole. “ Read more

Musk is the only person who had the hubris to think that he could contribute something that not a single one of the hundreds of more qualified search-and-rescue specialists, divers, or Navy SEALS asked for, needed, or wanted.

We tend to take 3-4 week vacations (just the two of us) in our minivan, so we have plenty of room.
