Welcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.
While Rabbi Marvin Hier was speaking to a half-empty National Mall at Donald Trump’s inauguration, an MSNBC cameraman zoomed in on our senile president’s face, and it was, somehow, not the most embarrassing image on the screen.
Eat Pray Love was published in 2007, and ten years later its basic methodological premise—a woman travels the world looking for wisdom in unlikely places—remains powerfully commercially viable. But in the decade since Elizabeth Gilbert picked herself up off her bathroom floor and left her husband, writers (and,…
If you’re like us, the past week of political news has felt like approximately six months. Russia! Comey! Flynn! Impeachment! Pee tape! But even throughout the insane news cycle, Sen. Elizabeth Warren has managed to stay focused on attempting to improve economic opportunities for people who have been left…
I would read personal essays if all personal essays were like this one, Joanna. Besides, who wants the personal essay to be dead, they’re so fucking ridiculous, and ridiculously entertaining (providing you don’t actually take the content seriously).

The column appeared in Write, a small magazine produced by the Writer’s Union of Canada (TWUC); in it, Hal…
It’s 1862, and Elle Burns is not what she seems. Ostensibly a slave working in a Confederate senator’s Richmond home, she’s actually a plant gathering intel to aid the Union cause—when she encounters Malcolm McCall, another spy, a dashing Scotsman by way of Kentucky, who simultaneously infuriates and interests her.
