Amazon will soon be opening grocery stores where I never have to interact with a minimum-wage worker.
Our estimate is that Kaine added 2.81 points to Clinton’s vote share. Given that she received only 52.78 percent of the two-party vote in Virginia, this means she could have lost Virginia if not for Kaine — although it would have been quite a nail-biter.
Oh, well. Still, it’s nice to be the only human being in the universe to predict that Trump would win Pennsylvania.
Bismarck once said that God loves the United States of America. Maybe that’s why God hates Colin Kaepernick. How else do you explain his leading his team to 11 losses in 11 games this year? Or becoming the first NFL quarterback to ever have more sacks than passing yards in a game?
Somehow, the guy still has a job. Probably because of affirmative action.
We know that black college students often do worse than their white peers. That’s because they’re “mismatched” with schools that practice racial discrimination in favor of black people.
OSU is an extremely racist institution, which discriminates blatantly on the basis of skin color (for example, white students need to do 110 points better than black students on the SAT.) Because of this, the six-year graduation rate at OSU for blacks is 17 percentage points lower than that of whites.
We know that Ohio Stabber Abdul Artan had just transferred to OSU from a community college, like Barack Obama transferred to Columbia. What if Artan found himself out of his depth (like Obama; where are those college transcripts?)?
If Artan had been born in America, he might have joined up with some loony BLM group in protest, or become a “community organizer” like Obama. (In fact, if Obama had a son, he’d look like Abdul.) Instead, because Artan was born a Muslim, he did what his religion dictates, violence against unbelievers.
Dan Rather’s network only cares about white people:
Every show that CBS debuted this fall—Kevin Can Wait, Man With a Plan, MacGyver, Bull, Pure Genius, and The Great Indoors—did just that. They’re all fronted by white men, fashioned as “traditional” catnip for audiences resistant to broader cultural shifts.
These new series play like lethargic callbacks for viewers who grieve the kind of broad and depoliticized entertainment that preceded Peak TV. The way Kevin Can Wait and Man With a Plan contrast with other networks’ family sitcoms is especially informative. They were promoted as comeback vehicles for sitcom favorites of the late ’90s—Kevin James and Matt LeBlanc, respectively—and center on dopey dads putting their careers on pause to spend time with their families.
I’m sure Stephen Colbert won’t take this Lying down. I’m sure he’ll have a thing or two to say about it on his show. Bwahahahaha!
Keith Ellison (or Keith E. Hakim, or Keith X. Ellison, or Keith Muhammad, etc.) is campaigning for office. Not for the safe House seat he holds, but for the leadership of the Democratic party, a job until recently held by the hilariously incompetent and boundlessly vapid Debbie Wasserman Schultz (who was forced to resign — “resign” here meaning “transfer formally to the Clinton campaign” — when she was exposed conniving to stack the presidential primary elections against Senator Bernie Sanders (S., Portlandia)), who was temporarily replaced by Donna Brazile, who was exposed leaking debate questions to the Clinton campaign, a violation of trust for which she remains adamantly impenitent.
Republicans should take a minute to simply enjoy all this before getting on to the serious business at hand. If they cannot have Debbie Wasserman Schultz organizing opposition to them, former Farrakhan fanboy Keith Ellison of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor party is a great second choice.
Raul Castro announced that Cuba would prohibit the naming of streets and monuments after his brother, and bar the construction of statues of the former leader and revolutionary icon, in keeping with his desire to avoid a cult of personality.
“The leader of the revolution rejected any manifestation of a cult of personality and was consistent in that through the last hours of his life, insisting that, once dead, his name and likeness would never be used on institutions, streets, parks or other public sites, and that busts, statutes or other forms of tribute would never be erected,” Raul Castro told a massive crowd gathered in the eastern city of Santiago.
