  1. Well, Ken is taking over while Mayim takes some time off the show out of solidarity with the writers on strike. My wife is convinced the producers asked her to take a break after she went on Celebrity Wheel this week. She was acting like she was on coke.
  2. Good journalism isn't presenting both sides. Its calling out bullshit when a candidate spews bullshit. It wouldn't be good journalism to televise a panel of flat earthers, and it isn't good to present a forum for election conspiracies.
  3. I know. A disturbingly large number of Texans are too.
  4. The wall was a uniquely Trumpian policy in 2015. That's how he separated himself from Jeb, Rubio, et al. In 2023 immigrant bashing is de rigueur for a GOP candidate. Had to go to my Dad's last weekend to help him re-tarp his koi pond. My brother had to bring up politics and in the middle of what passed for a discussion I asked my (completely batshit lost in the right wing grift-o-sphere) dad this very question when he laid the "'Trump is a little unpolished sometimes but his policies are PERFECT!!!" line. I wanted to know what policy he supported that was specifically and uniquely Trumpian rather than a policy every generic R supports. His answer? Trump will fire everyone in the FBI and clean up the deep state. My Dad wants a special military squad beholden to Trump with the power to arrest, detain, and kill. Shockingly he's also a big DeSantis supporter.
  5. Holy Shit. I've seen Animal House 100 times and never put it together that Faber College is in Tennessee.
  6. Good thing RT is hiring
  7. To be perfectly clear: I oppose this bill completely and without hesitation. I think what the GOP is doing to demonize transgender teens is abhorrent and repugnant. It breaks my heart to see grown adults in positions of power bullying and humiliating emotionally vulnerable teenagers for political advantage. That being said, there is nothing in this bill requiring genital exams. The bill does not explain how a ban would be enforced. It may be enforced through a doctor's note or through a requirement to show a birth certificate, as it is in Kentucky. https://www.kansascity.com/news/politics-government/article274047620.html Again, I completely oppose this legislation. But it damages the credibility of those who argue for equality among genders to create false enforcement that isn't in the bill. It opens the door for the middle of the road "both sides" doofuses to say, "well the bill doesn't mandate genital examinations by a homeroom teacher, so it's not THAT bad" after loud mouthed AM radio assholes scream about the woke mob blowing this out of proportion. Don't exaggerate the pernicious effects of this bill. It's horrific enough on its face.

    Let them eat Big Macs
  9. What do you have against short people?
  10. Lol Good news: The non-sexy green M&M is coming back! On Monday, M&M’s parent company Mars Wrigley announced that it would be pulling its M&M’s ‘spokescandies’ mascots indefinitely and replacing them with the actor Maya Rudolph. However, the company told the New York Times on Friday that the controversial move was all just a PR stunt, and that the spokescandies will indeed return at the upcoming Super Bowl. https://www.polygon.com/23574687/m-and-m-spokescandies-super-bowl-ad
  11. This thread was a really fun read. You've got a nose for this @Poe It Up. Keep up the hot takes.
  12. FWIW there's a credible argument that Bryan didn't argue against evolution because "hurr durr monkeys ain't people." Social Darwinism was prevalent and used to justify the wealthy gutting social welfare, labor reform, and anything else that threatened robber baron profits. Unlike Trump (what a terrible comparison) or Mencken, Bryan gave a shit about the impoverished and powerless. Mencken promoted drivel from Ayn Rand and Nietzsche. https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/09505430802062885
  13. Maybe I'm drunk but what does this mean? Wouldn't the batter's team need to be behind for them to be able to tie? How did any of the Astros after we took a 3-1 lead "have a shot to at least tie the game"?
  14. It will be at NRG. Just like Tech vs UH last year
  15. Yordan was safe. His foot was off the bag.
  16. And they will be rewarded for their behavior

  18. *Three. What makes the last two from Cali any better?
  19. Dumbass penalties and pathetic QB play are gonna cost Aggy the game
  20. So stupid, especially considering the Church of England was founded so a King could divorce his spouse.
