@darius I think about this perfect toot like once a week minimum

USPOL / Bleak Outlook 

I’m calling the whole thing now; biden gets the nom and enough sanders supporters keep their pledge not to vote for him in the general and we lose to trump. The sanders base only gives a shit about tactical voting when they’re scolding super tuesday warren voters. I’ll take your bets if you think I’m wrong.

gotta remind myself every day to keep unlearning cruelty. it's always possible to love more deeply, and it's so so necessary


I just tried a White Claw and folks this shit straight sucks

As a longtime Bernie supporter, I used to scoff @ the idea that his abrasive fanbase could turn folx off from voting for him (unless they were just looking for an excuse anyways). But fuckin hell y’all, the last 2 weeks fully energized the psychotic asshole wing of the party. Can’t even have a conversation with people I *agree* with. Might have to check out of all podcasts & social media for the next 11 months, just so I can maintain any enthusiasm for his actual candidacy

Ok, but the pronoun stickers used by the America Chemical Society are actually badass?

@joshmillard see our difference is I thought the frame show was legitimately funny &, like, quoted it with friends. “They make bread or something” is a fully great line & read. I did hit my Sorkin Exhaustion Point after the Newsroom / Steve Jobs combo wombo so I can’t really revisit S60 with a generous ear anymore, but I maintain that “the sketches didn’t make me laugh” is a /whoosh/ critique

Still hearing people in the year of our lord 2020 say that Sorkin’s “Studio 60” failed because the show within the show wasn’t funny.
It wasn’t supposed to be funny, it was supposed to be SNL.
