@OsitaNwanevu  there's very good polling on this, don't know what the racial crosstabs are, but there's broad based skepticism about the government's ability to do things

packers throwing this game so their fans can watch the times endorsement on fx

everyone's making fun of the times endorsement circus but it's obviously working, people are talking about it!

bernie sanders told elizabeth warren in 2018 that just because mr mouse is loyal it doesn't make him special

always funny to see john lynch as, like, a normal general manager in a suit. literally his entire nfl career is illegal now.

i would go to davos but only invited as part of a thomas mann event (only then would i finally feel the necessary pressure to read the magic mountain)

the security guard loving biden is more meaningful and informative for why he's in the position he's in than anything he says in the interview

literally a black working class woman saying "I love you so much" before he gets filleted by obviously skeptical elite liberal opinion journalists. his entire campaign in a nutshell.

kinda wild that the top two candidates for the entire race didn't make it to the final four and cory booker, who dropped out, did.

should have had the new york times cooking commentators do it, they just would have endorsed someone who wasn't running


There’s no better synecdoche for the campaign as a whole than Bernie and Warren tearing each other apart over something that may or may not have been said in private while Biden literally said the thing in public and no one cares

Being a political reporter is so cool, your avi is a screenshot of daytime MSNBC, your header photo is you in a crowd following Susan Collins with your voice recorder in her face, you tweet mostly about your hometown NFL team and the bad gate at Reagan.

Lots of Never Trumpism (especially that National Review issue) was premised on 1. Trump losing and 2. If he won, not governing as a conservative. So when he won and let Heritage do domestic policy and the Federalist Society do judges, the entire project became obsolete

imagine how excited the nixon library was to find a taped phone call where nixon wasn't the most racist

how dare the new york times report on how badly the harris campaign was week before it collapsed

The DoD has directly appropriated about $1 trillion for the war in Afghanistan since 2001. With that much money, you could give $3,035 to every woman earning less than $1.90/day.

John Major is younger than Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden

here's my "end of decade content": linguistic trends that bug me - referring to people/persons as "humans" ("I love this human" etc) - "not not" - "all the" (as in "i drank all the wine") - "[city] i'm in you" - "not mad about it"
