One of the most wonderful things about this particular window of this time of the year is that you can say "have a great holiday" and it also means "don't communicate with me any further for the next several weeks."

Everyone knows that the honored American tradition is that a president should not be held responsible for things he said because he got mad

This thread is so right. There is a lot of unexamined thinking (and I'm sure I've been guilty of it too) around the kind of behavior that writers lazily associate with words connoting "strong" (i.e, anything loud and angry is "tough," even if it's actually a tantrum).

Sorry! I was really thinking more about the “gorging myself on chopped liver“ part of it

This amazing-looking new deli opened a few blocks from my house and I am going to live out a real-life version of the KING OF THE HILL where Bobby gives himself gout.

I remember in 2001, one of the supposed reasons for not naming Osama Bin Laden was that there was some doubt whether he was still alive. (I don't think anyone inside the magazine or out believed this was the real reason, but it had been the "rule" that POY be living.)

In fact, I remember one figleaf reason for not picking OBL in 2001 was that he hadn't been heard from in a while and might be dead. (I don't think anyone really believed that was the reason, but...)

I want Mulvaney, Meadows, Christie, et al. in the boardroom with Trump, pleading why he should hire the other guy instead
