I am alright with Trump freezing the Republican field for 2024, I am perfectly okay with the massive field and run offs we had in 2012 that got us Mitt Romney’s failed campaign. Read more

Right-wingers have been bitching about the way young people look/dress/act ever since the first caveman to ever put on a slightly smaller animal pelt came along.

Great! Sold! I also think the GBBS has declined over the years, w/ Hollywood becoming ever more insufferable and Prue claiming that her babka (or was it Paul’s?) was better than ‘anything she’s had in New York’ made me question if she actually, you know, TASTES things. Read more

Do you think Donny Sr. would make DJTJ pay him a bribe to get a pardon? Being his son isn’t enough?

Accidentally typing “0" instead of “o” can happen (they’re right next to each other) but I never thought I’d see it happen twice in rapid succession.

I was thinking that also. Like, technically, ‘multiple’ is correct, I guess, but what an odd way to say ‘two’.

As dumb as it is for people to take a fictional show so seriously, his infidelity is not fiction, and he dragged a literal teenager into his mess when he was 32. So, limited sympathy there. I also think it’s healthy for him to experience a small fraction of the rage that his son and Meghan faced from online bullies Read more

Well, for her it’s like, imagine you’re a plumber and there’s a big plumber’s convention every year in Las Vegas and in 2011 some yutz from Houston took the award for “Best Plumbing Innovation” even though everyone knows that’s the year you invented the mechanically retractable toilet snake. Laymen probably don’t care Read more

Nicki having 7 songs on the billboard charts means she should have won a Grammy in the same sense that The Phantom Menace topping the box office means it should have won Best Picture.

Maybe, but on the other hand, both Senate candidates outperformed Trump in Georgia, albeit just barely. More broadly, downballot Republicans easily outperformed Trump in general. Biden is going to win the popular vote by 4.5-5 points, while I think Democrats “won” the popular vote for the House by only about 2 or 3 Read more

Trump is making a play to turn the RNC - the Republican Party itself - into an extension of the Trump Organization. They want Don Jr at its head.

The problem with this analogy - one I’ve used on countless occasions - is that Charlie Brown never goes over and kicks the shit out of Lucy. Lucy knows this, so she never lets Charlie Brown kick the football. Read more

I wonder. Those shows both debuted a few years after my own diagnosis, and each helped me understand something about myself I’d struggled with my whole life, and offered me a way to talk about it. The Big Bang Theory gets a lot of hate, of course, and I won’t say it’s unjustified; but while I prefer being compared to Read more

I think I’m good. Dave’s signature sucked, Paul said it sucked, Prue came in her pants over it, they’re likely fucking. Laura was second to last in half the weeks. Peter had a good week, but Hermine was clear and away the best baker. Dave and Laura making the final, especially Dave because at least if you can’t see Read more

I definitely didn’t have “get insulted & cussed-out by Sia on Twitter” on my agenda for today. :D

To be fair, his other playlists were not this vanilla. Like someone pointed out above, his most recent playlist before this one featured Khruangbin and Leon Bridges.
This is also the same guy who created both “daytime” and “nighttime” playlists during his presidency that included D’Angelo, Chance the Rapper, and Read more

It’s actually crazy how bad they are at mating. They only attempt it every 2-4 years, when a specific coniferous tree bears fruit (to feed the 1-4 chicks that might not be eaten immediately by a predator but probably will be), and the males use a “booming” noise to attract females, who then have to walk for miles (they Read more
