The George Washington Bridge has its own song. In the spirit of this thread I’ll post a version of it. (It’s not me singing.) It’s a novelty song that you used to see sometimes on variety shows in the 1970s, but I can’t find any professional versions of it.
I think Morse got endorsed by JUSTICE DEMOCRATS which is usually an indicator that someone is awesome (AOC, Ro Khanna, Ilhan Omar, Pramila Jayapal, Ayana Pressley, Raul Grijalva, and Rashida “Impeach-the-Motherfucker” Tlaib)
I remember that. I miss the old days too. I had just finally gotten starred it felt like when it became a free for all.
I’ve known plenty, in both Chicago and New York, and this is exactly it. (Though I should note that many of those plenty are beneficiaries of substantial family fortunes, as well, so they don’t have to worry about what their bosses think about them.)
He’s very vocal about his opinions and what not, so most likely when this doesn’t work out he’ll fully express who/why/what went wrong. I think there’s maybe a tiny tiny shot so hey trying. Setting it up for Trump to embrace something or anything. When Trump doesn’t we’ll hear about how he failed to do anything.
I wish everyone would just realize there’s a really simple reason these folks aren’t overly enthusiastic about looking into Trump’s corrupt past—their closets have skeletons too, and they’re afraid the tables will be turned on them.
Good luck Megan.
I’ve had several dealings with private equity firms. There are those who want to invest long term and make something stronger.

You can even apply this to the current Presidency, and it still fits without a hitch.
I only posted on ClashTalk a handful of times, and I felt like it was getting genuinely toxic in its hostility to KK and Libby in 2019. At its best, ClashTalk retained some of the gleeful irreverence that defined Gawker. At its worst, it was the natural reflection of Splinter’s joyless polemics.
gotta pour one out for clashtalk :(
What else is he going to do with his time?
I’ve been an active Gawker media commenter for more than a decade. Started at Jalopnik, found a voice on Gawker, and was very grateful to find a whole ecosystem of content, and creators, and commenters, and culture.

She’s going to be editor of Wired.com starting next month.
More thanks than you can ever know for this post and for your work here overall.
Never, ever underestimate a mediocre, rich white man’s desire to stare huge sums of money in the face, have people practically screaming “THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO TAKE MY MONEY FROM ME AND I WILL GLADLY GIVE IT TO YOU”...and then say “nah, I’ll do what I want even if it loses me money in the end.”
Fuck these wannabe Bain Capital vultures.
“A metastasizing swath of media is controlled by private-equity vultures and capricious billionaires and other people who genuinely believe that they are rich because they are smart and that they are smart because they are rich, and that anyone less rich is by definition less smart. They know what they know, and they…
As “F-U, I’m outta here letters go,” this one is pretty classy and filled with real evidence. Good luck, Megan!
