I remember yesterday, upon reading “President Joe Biden” in some headline that I stopped, blinked, and it came to mind that at no other occasion had the words “President Newname” given me such a sense of disbelief — not even when Trump came into office. But the shitshow he put us through these last four years has me Read more

I’ve really enjoyed posting to Barf Bag... always seemed like the right place to vent, snarkily.

To that end, I’d like to say RIP Henry Aaron. One of my earliest sports memories was watching him hit #715, local stations pre-empted programming to cover it. A black man, in the South, being celebrated for passing a white Read more

I’ll miss Barf Bag. I was just thinking earlier today how nice it is to open google news and not be immediately presented with a picture of Trump or a stories about his lately stupid antics, and so quickly too.

Thank you, Stassa, and the rest of the staff, for your diligence in covering this nightmare. Honestly I don’t know how you all could stand it. I also appreciate your commitment to covering the new administration with a critical eye. You’ll probably get a whole lot of “this is a bad take” nonsense, but not from me.

I grew up with parents like Claudia’s. My mother died in 2016 and I still have to deal with everyone telling me what a great and powerful woman and mother she was. Anything I say is dismissed as me being spoiled or rebellious. Even though I’m 31, I still don’t have the right to my own narrative apparently.

I was under the impression that the Conways were just craven - but calculating - jerks who were using the Republican party and Trump as a means to an end. When they both stepped back, I hoped (as an empathetic person) that they were going to legit do things to fix their family and their relationship with their Read more

Yep, you’re still contributing to the overall goal of vaccinating everybody, even if the timing is off.

Yet not a peep regarding this from the trash cabal of MAGAt/QAnon assholes, otherwise so concerned about “the children”.

pretty sure i told you in a reply to your Traumatized Congress article — the same thing is happening to everyone. You don't have to have been in Washington to be traumatized by recent events. That's something we all need to acknowledge and understand right now. Things are very serious.

I mean, I didn’t eat until 2pm and that’s kind of problematic but I fed myself now so I tried. Really.

I can’t snark on this. Claudia sounds like she needs support and for whatever reason she isn’t getting it. I don’t think it helps that unlike other teenagers, her social media feed gets injected straight into the mass media aquarium.
