Hi not to be annoying bc I love Ronan Farrow’s work I do but the new New Yorker story has two bylines and the other is Jane Mayer, who has a really long investigative track record incl, and this is relevant, co-authoring a whole book on the Clarence Thomas hearing.

There's never just one. And instead of cutting their losses and dropping him, the GOP is certainly going to plow forward, because fuck you for thinking this matters to them.

It’s frustrating seeing folks come around to this when brilliant black thinkers I know have basically been ostracized or look at all sorts of crazy by liberal mainstream writers for daring say this

2017 was the second-hottest year on record for Texas. 88 people died in the aftermath of Harvey last year. Wildfires in the Panhandle and North Texas burned thousands of acres. Yet, here we are, the debate is over and not a single mention of climate change.

Waking up at 4 am sucks, but being up at 4-8am rocks. I love the earliest morning hush.

I don't know if McConnell's use of "plow through" was an intentional dog whistle, but it was such a statement of contempt and callousness that it hardly matters.

The whole difference between the rhetorical approaches of the Democratic and Republican parties is contained in small moments like this. You can be mad about it, but Republicans win a lot!

I took 's advice and watched the last three episodes of Iron Fist season two and I... quite enjoyed them!?! It doesn't feel like the same show. It's still not great, but it's good pulpy fun, and promises to become more so if they stick with this direction.

Burneko, as usual puts his finger on it. "The bigger the outrage that can be brushed aside, the more thorough the defeat for the people who thought something, anything, might take precedence over this white man being the pick of another white man."

The contempt on display here for due process really is the point. It's not an accident: it's the point. They will put a man credibly accused of rape on the Supreme Court, because he's their man, because fuck you.

Anyway, let's talk about The Alamo Drafthouse, which has a damning history of hushing up sexual assault and harassment. Amusingly, the Austin press responded to this with a deafening silence and a bunch of folks are at right now! Fun.
