Hurricane Harvey has taken me to a dark place

I think I’m suffering from outrage overload. I just don’t want to write about anything anymore. There’s too much that needs to be said, and I have too little time, energy and talent to do it justice.

Russia, Russia, Russia… Now that we’ve got a narrative, we can’t let go

It’s all happening so fast. It’s easy to be overwhelmed. One minute, Kid Rock, in what we can hope is just a bid to sell a few thousand more of his ridiculous “dumbfuckistan” t-shirts, announces a bid to take on Debbie Stabenow for the Senate, and, the next thing you know, Caitlyn “just because she’s […]

In epic asshole fashion, Lindsey Graham promises to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email
