      While there certainly were Russian bots pushing Sanders back in 2016 (it was part of my job to track them), and most assuredly they’re there again, it’s really disingenuous of Bernie to insinuate his online supporters aren’t known for attacking people — because they’re people we know. Some of them are members of his senior … Continue reading Deja vu […]

    • The Greatest Danger To Bernie’s Revolution
      Will Sanders be the Democratic nominee for President? Probably. Barring something very unexpected, he’ll have the most delegates. His polling in the big super Tuesday states is ahead of all the other candidates. Right now all Bloomberg is doing is harming the other “centrist” candidates, he’s actually helping Sanders. The risk is that Sanders doesn’t […] […]

Offensive and inappropriate open thread


It occurred to me that I might have missed angering and offending a few people this week. If you’re one of them, this post’s for you.

Julian Assange was in court this week but we didn’t talk about it because somebody used up all the pixels. IBS. (I blame Sarah)

Did we miss anything else?

Let’s talk about anything but HER.

  1. When I went to the fridge for my last can of Yuengling Lager I spotted another way in the back behind the syrup, so try as you might there is no harshing my mellow.

    • I remember when RD used that phrase way back in 2008 and the blogstalkers were losing their shit over it.

      Who the fuck says ‘harshing my mellow’ anymore?

      Later I realized that losing their shit is a daily thing for blogstalkers.

      • … and loss of shit is directly proportional to loss of IQ for them.

        For me it’s inversely proportional to lager intake,

        the IQ not the shit.

      • If they lost all their sh-t all that would be left is lips and tennis shoes!

    • Shoot!

  2. !! I’m ready to relax. This looks like a nice place.

  3. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords opens eyes for first time since Tucson shooting

    It was the first time she had opened her eyes since the shooting that wounded her Saturday outside a Tucson grocery store. “We all started crying,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said in a phone interview from Air Force One later Wednesday night. “Other than the birth of my children, it was the most incredible moment I have ever had.”
    Also in the room were Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who were talking to Giffords and encouraging her to get well before she opened her eyes. Gillibrand urged Giffords to “get better,” calling her by her nickname, Gabby. Wasserman Schultz told her that she hoped she would get well quickly enough to vacation with her family in New Hampshire next summer.

    Sweet.

  4. How about something by the 13th Floor Elevators? Roky Erickson is a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic. The movie You’re Gonna Miss Me is excellent, btw, although I admit find the anti-psychers at the end about as scary as I find the pro-institutionalists at the beginning.

  5. I have green teeth!

  6. In case anyone is interested:

    These are not tonight’s winning SuperLotto numbers.

  7. Like many mental disorders, schizophrenia and genius can be close siblings. Guitarist Peter Green who was diagnosed with schizophrenia in his 20s inspired and played with John Mayall, Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, and he founded the original Fleetwood Mac. He’s playing and singing here.

  8. Down By the River, Big Sur, 1969

  9. In the theme of crazy I thought of this song.

    However, after coming across this version with the words listed in this youtube. It probably hits too close to current events.

    And so, is it offensive, timely, dangerous rhetoric, or just an 80s song?
