Political discourse.

Russia is taking over CSPAN!!! RFK Jr Meets with Trump to talk pseudo-science. What they’re saying about that dossier. Chuck Schumer resends old Mitch McConnell letter.

Apparently, Mein Kampf is heading Germany’s best-seller list right now. Is it possible that Germany is just now waking up to the detailed memoirs of Norwegian Karl Ove Knausgaard? Or is there some other Mein Kampf out there?

“Thank God for Meryl Streep.  Because she’s stopping the coming nuclear war from happening.” I think the logic here is that Trump’s attention wanders to tweeting against the latest Hollywood celebrity commenting against him is stopping him from other acts. Sure enough, we get the “OVER-RATED&#

Group of Republicans oppose GOP’s plan on Health Care, commenters at Reason go nuts. Red Nova about to go. Norman Solomon rails against Democratic Party line on Russia hackers.

Back in the early 1990s, I remember this issue of Boys’ Life that included an article — I think it was part of a series — by Issac Asimov which posited future innovations in technology.  This was a device that we’re now on the cusp of — the driver-less car. The article in question posited [

Exactly who the heck is Kobach of Kansas, and how is he angling for a spot in the Trump Administration, and why do we care when he pesters that… the exception to the rule in charging the total of a Clinton popular vote win… But inquiries to all 50 states (every one but Kansas responded) […]

ITEM NUMBER ONE:  Richard Black talks to Mike Billington about the drug war in the Philippines, in support of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.  It takes “Right Wing Watch” over a month to notice.  (To be sure, it trickles through the media slowly — and the international media sometimes can’t

Facing the inevitable patriarchal backlash… (Groups of people are going to Hell, but only one item.) This story was considered by USA Today as the biggest news item out of Rhode Island of this last year.  (Oregon’s was the Malheur Refuge Trial, which in my mind, is either or isn’t a bigger deal — I

I have no idea what I should think of this. It occurred to me in the current embargado, as Donald Trump waits the next month to take the reins of power with a fresh new approach to the government the United States has held at least at arms’ length… An administration that’s provoking wide spread […]

I’ve seen books like that.  But not quite those books. She hasn’t actually read Kerouac’s 320-page, amphetamine-fueled, stream-of-consciousness classic.

So.  How did the candidates for the Whig Party go over? Brandon Kirshner did not appear on the ballot. Trevor O’Grady was apparently running for President, and one thing I know is that a dual run for President and US Senate does not work.  Usually.  (Yeah.  I know Garfield.)

A political cartoon, I don’t know if it’ll be published or hung somewhere.  Two Face of the Batman comics.  On the first end he’s saying something about Birther-ism, on the second end he’s raving about the CIA hacking and this election. A false equivalence.  I suppose the end comes up the same

Final Senate election. “If people want somebody who is phony, a flip-flopper and has been on every side and has been everything but a Baptist preacher, they need to vote for John Kennedy,” Campbell, a 69-year-old elected utility regulator, drawls in one throwback line. “I don’t wear a thousand-dollar suit to walk do
