I don't know...

Some people have been taking it pretty hard.

If you ask has been said before, and I'll say it again...

America DESERVES Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump.

After all, it's not like anyone was forced to cast their vote for either one of those contestants during the presidential primaries.

It's called free will -- look it up.



Today's update from the Ministry of Truth


Brought to you in Newspeak by David Brock:

More about the "secretary's exemplary record," here, on Current Affairs.



The establishment is revolting...

And that's not all:

I kid Joel Benenson :-)



Sh'mon, where is your love?


It'd appear that perhaps Glenn Greenwald was onto something with his essay about The Seven Stages of Establishment Backlash.

Is this stage 6 already?

The weaselly article hit-piece, by Burgess Everett on Politico, refers to "nearly a dozen Democratic lawmakers" without mentioning any by name, except for four senators: Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).

Methinks that reports of Bernie Sander's demise are greatly exaggerated.

Furthermore, win or lose, Bernie Sanders campaign is good for the Democratic Party.

It's good for Democracy.

And it's good for America!




Non ne luy coupés pas !

There have been speculations as to the reasons for Chris Matthews’s relentless "shilling" for Hillary Clinton. is running a petition demanding MSNBC's suspension of Chris Mathhews for the duration of the Democratic primaries.

I don't know.

While, certainly, there is no denying that there is potentially a case to be made for some possible conflict of interest, here:

I am inclined to give Chris Matthews the benefit of the doubt.

Sometimes, you just have to give stupidity credit where stupidity credit is due. I think Chris Matthews is just simply being the usual blowhard self he has always been.

In other words, Chris Matthews doesn’t need a motive to be a biased Beltway insider and a disingenuous political hack. That’s who he is. It’s his nature.

Does anyone even take him all that seriously?

No, no need to cut Chris Matthew's Hardball off, MSNBC.

There is very little left, there, worth to be taken seriously, or of any consequence to anyone.

Gabriel Bataille’s 1613 popular song about a satyr’s clumsy courtship of a nymph comes to mind:

Just bring us back someone of some courage who is not afraid to play ball where and when it actually matters.

Bring us back Keith Olbermann, MSNBC! What do you say?



Moral Clarity

You want to know what moral clarity is?

This is what moral clarity is:

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii just endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders in his bid to become President of the United States. She also resigned as Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee.

This is her interview on Meet the Press, this morning:




The look on Glenn's face is priceless.

I wonder what he is thinking...



Billions of years from now, the universe as we know it will cease to exist...

But, don't fret, there are some ways out...


io9: Will Our Descendants Survive the Destruction of the Universe?

This ought to count as either the most optimistic or the most sardonic entry I have ever posted.

I just can't decide which.



Whosoever purports to carry oneself like an angel, behaves like a beast

The title is a maxim from Blaise Pascal's "Pensées".

The complete quote is "L'homme n'est ni ange ni bête et le malheur veut que qui veut faire l'ange fait la bête" (Man is neither an angel nor a beast, and the mishap is that whosoever purports to carry oneself like an angel, behaves like a beast).

I know...

Things have not changed all that much ever since the Crusades, have they?

Except for the shape of the cross on our flag...

And the might of our weapons...
