Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

It feels a little fuzzy this early, early Wednesday morning, and I’m not really up for much deep thinking.  And so…

On To the Links!

As if coronavirus wasn’t enough!

Once in a while we win one.

Why the Left is losing.  Here’s my favorite bit:

To be blunt, left-wing political correctness is more powerful than the right-wing variant. For instance, many social conservatives may dislike environmentalist candidates in their ranks, but dissidents on the left of a conservative party won’t have their character questioned and reputation trashed. By contrast, a left-wing politician who moves right on culture—calling for lower immigration or abolishing female-only shortlists, for instance—is likely to be accused of racism or sexism by radical online activists. This causes them intense embarrassment and, by triggering a social taboo, may lead others to pile on them to signal virtue. This can damage a person’s reputation well beyond politics.

I should say!

Tom Steyer, who will never be President, was caught badly off guard the other day, and the results are telling – he’s a dissembling asshole.

Why Trump is winning.  Here’s my favorite bit:

While Trump’s critics find much of his track record is objectionable, that same record is just what many of his supporters hoped for — and then some. From record-high employment for African Americans and other minorities, to a new trade deal with China, replacing NAFTA with USMCA, unbuckling the regulatory environment, moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, progress toward building a border wall and draining the Washington swamp, Trump is picking up some independents, Democrats, blacks and other minorities.

This Week’s Idiots:

These student loan defaulters are all idiots.

Angela Ruskin University professor Patricia MacCormack is an idiot.

Maxine Waters is an idiot.  (Yes, I know, that one is belaboring the obvious.)

Mike Bloomberg is an elitist fuckstick, and an idiot.

The View is hosted by idiots.

And Now:

I think I’m still a trifle jet-lagged.  I lieu of any pithy comments for today, have another piece of totty from the archives.

And on that note, we return you to your Wednesday, already in progress.
