Halloween

On this All Hallows Eve there are armies of ghouls and goblins wandering the streets of America searching for brains. You can recognize them by their red hats and confederate flags. And it’s abundantly clear why they are so fixated on finding brains: They have an acute deficiency of them...

Ted Cruz continued his “Hey, look! I’m not in Cancun!” tour yesterday, traveling to the U.S.-Mexico border in search of a thatch of reeds that in no way made him look like a serial killer floating freshly harvested bodies down the river on jerry-rigged rafts comprised of peat bog residue and...

If you listen to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and conservative media silos, like Fox News, black Capitol police officer Harry Dunn, who was called the N-word a “couple dozen times” by Confederate flag-waving insurrectionists, is crazy to believe the ‘hoax’ that white supremacy exists. The supremacy deniers would also have...

Jordan Klepper’s frequent embedded reports from MAGA-land have been a breath of fresh air over the past five years, so of course The Daily Show simply had to send him to Denial-palooza.  And he didn’t disappoint.  In this episode we discover that Trump fans can’t count to two; the only trustworthy figures...

Donald Trump’s favorite person, aside from himself, has worked assiduously over the years to make it appear as if she isn’t nearly as vulgar, brash, or downright gormless as the rest of the Huns in her family. But it’s a dark ruse — as evidenced by her tacit complicity in...

Trump’s self-fulfilling idiocy still needs to drive his numbers further down. Like punking his gun-toting followers, a desperate Trump thinks that having his GOP RNC acceptance speech at Gettysburg will do for his neo-confederate followers something, something Charlottesville. The Stephen Miller logic probably has more historical revisionist malarkey in the...

Jared Kushner’s Air Bridge may have worked to not only expedite delivery of PPE, but also failed to deliver by hoarding an as yet unaccounted amount of PPE materiel. Trump has been called a “day-trader” and the margin-businesses popular with venture capitalists excites those risk seekers playing with other people’s money....

Rand Paul isn’t too concerned about climate change on Planet Earth, but to his credit he does think we need to start creating livable ecosystems elsewhere. I guess he thinks humanity is on a cosmic pub crawl, and since we’re about to wear out our welcome here, we need to find...

It seems to be an argument almost as fundamental as “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?”, and just about as insoluble. On the one hand you have activist progressives who argue that the constitution isn’t interpreted by politics, and Trump’s offenses require impeachment, and the consequences be damned....

We always knew the name Surf Street was dead on. When we were little, a sign that spelled “No Wake” was attached to the telephone pole at the top of the street, for when boats would pass through from Shore Road. I’d never seen boats float by our front window,...
