Icons, Left and (Alt-)Right

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died. This is very important, because they recently made a movie about her, and by watching it you can realize how cute she used to be, back when she was a British actress as well as a world historical “feminist icon.”  Feminist icon: a symbolic representation of Marxism, in female form. I hope Ginsburg’s death...

The Testament of Dr. Fauci

Dr. Fauci, America’s Comforting Grandfather of Doom, says, “We need to hunker down and get through this fall and winter, because it’s not going to be easy.”  “Hunker down” is a polite way of saying “Ruin what’s left of grandma’s life with forced isolation, provoke thousands of suicides among the lonely and desperate, destroy the life savings and career aspirations of tens of...

When Progressives Argue

Donald Trump, most of whose likely voters are the sort of people who act outraged every time a progressive dares to question the saintly perfection of the United States military, or any individual member of that military, has allegedly called fallen soldiers “losers” and “suckers.” If he really said it, which I do not doubt, since Trump has probably called everyone outside of...

Welcome to Trumpoholics Anonymous

Every smoker tells himself he will quit — but “not right now,” when he has so much stress to deal with in his life. Every drinker says, “I know I have to cut back, and I will — after I get through this divorce / get over this problem with my boss / survive my exams.” Everyone taking antidepressants insists he will reduce...

Get All Your DNC News…Somewhere Else

If you feel yourself caring a little about what Michelle Obama is going to say at the Democratic National Convention, go for a long walk, preferably somewhere with trees and birds. If you are committed to watching Kamala Harris’ speech for evidence of race politics, or Joe Biden’s speech for evidence of dementia, ask yourself why — and then watch a classic Hollywood...

Bubble Reveals All She Knows

I see that Madeleine Westerhout, an overgrown college party girl and gossipmonger — who, naturally, was one of Donald Trump’s brilliant “best people” until she humiliated him by flirting…er, I mean “speaking” about the Trump family off the record, with anti-Trump journalists — has, to apply a noble term loosely, “written a book.” Specifically, she has tried to save her political career by...

Telling Figures, Indeed

A shocking headline from CBS News informs us, or at least those few of us brave enough to face the hardest truths, that the “U.S. has more COVID cases than some countries have people.” Is this real, or some kind of sick joke? How is one supposed to sleep at night after being confronted with, let alone fully digesting, the sheer enormity of...

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About America (But Were Afraid to Ask)

Things have become quite awkward today for Americans inclined to inquire freely into issues of moral and politico-economic propriety, or historical justice. Even asking the wrong question, apart from leaning toward any particular answer, can place one at risk of public “cancellation,” unemployment, or being lambasted by a late-night television comedian. As a public service of sorts, then, let us take a few...

Mini Jot Notes from Way, Way Underground

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who looks very sexy and elegant in the movie, has apparently been hit with another round of cancer. It is sad to have to think of such a thing under these circumstances, but unfortunately one does: If Ginsburg is nearing the end of her days on the court, then this makes the 2020 election all the...
