And Trump called the reporter “disgusting” for even asking him about their accusations.
To counteract my anxiety about the election and some other things, I have been looking at cute clothes a lot. I’ve even ordered a few things. Here’s some stuff I like. Feel free to post stuff you like too!!
A powerful piece by Dorothy Snarker.
I am beyond anxious about this election, and it has me on edge. I feel like I have to constantly be aware of what is going on ... which is maybe not super helpful. I spent way too much time this weekend just glued to the news. Actually, it hasn’t just been this weekend - it has been going on for some time. …
I wrote “loveblogging” at first - which is pretty funny.
I think this is pretty cogent and brilliant in its analysis. Discuss.
Rachel Maddow says that the GOP is currently meeting to figure out WTF to do. McCain, Priebus, Ayotte, and Ryan have all condemned Trump’s comments, but all still support him (at least publicly). Trump will not appear with Ryan in Wisconsin tomorrow, but Pence will (no one from the Trump campaign should- Pence is as…
I don’t want to post this to facebook bc I don’t want my mentor to think my resonance with this is about her (bc she is perfect!), so I am posting it here. It is genius.
On Meet the Press this morning, one of the commentators asserted that Tina Fey singlehandedly shifted opinions of Sarah Palin through her impersonations of her on SNL. Could this SNL skit do the same for Drumpf (fingers crossed)? Also, they gave the SNL skit “zero pinocchios.” :)
I had dinner last night with a mentor, and we were talking about religions. I mentioned that I was raised as an atheist and she commented that she couldn’t imagine being raised that way without a religion. I think she currently identifies as spiritual, not religious, and I think that is important to her.
Really? Nothing else is happening in the world, NYT? Really?
Feel free to pile on with anything that is annoying or upsetting you. It’s cathartic! And fun!
I’m going to a conference in St. Louis - I’ve never been before, so am looking for recommendations. I’ll be at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark. I don’t know how much free time I’ll have, but I like museums, vegetarian food, paper and office supply stores, good chai ... I’m not sure what else I like (that’s pretty…
She’s covering for Chris Hayes on MCNBC! If you are a fan, tune in!
I can’t get off of Drumpf’s mailing list (bc I was going to go to the rally in Chicago and had to give my email address to get tickets), and today got the below email. If you won a coffee date with Ivanka Drumpf, what would be your evil fantasy of what would happen on that date??? Don’t feel like evil fantasies, tell…
Last week was a really rough week for me, and this week may be extremely stressful as well due to funding issues on our campus and those funding issues possibly affecting my position. I’m also stressed out because I am working on a manuscript, and all of my collaborators sent me feedback on the paper at the same time.…
A few more awesome Vagenda of Manocide products:
Well, I don’t - but Kathryn Hahn does, and that’s enough for me! This is a pilot for Amazon - and it’s totes worth watching - and voting for! Plus, one of my friends from college is a writer for it! So, keep her employed and vote early and often!
Someone posted a link for chat based therapy a couple months ago. I looked at it, but didn’t save it, and now think it would be really useful for a colleague of mine. It wasn’t one of those sites like 7 cups of tea - it had trained therapists who also did tx online. Does that ring a bell with anyone?
