“It’s not every day that a sitting president takes cues from a sex columnist who once licked Gary Bauer’s doorknob.”

Wonderful profile on advice columnist/American hero Dan Savage.

The national Democratic party will not even vigorously stand up for itself against a threat to its own existence, nor take up the cause of the people who will. It cannot find the sand to stand credibly for a viable middle class, nor for the institutions that make that possible. It cannot summon the spine to defend the power it was granted in two consecutive elections. It is frightened by its own best instincts. It seems more than ever to be setting itself up to be a player in whatever form of corporate oligarchy comes after the great conservative project is complete, and to hell with anyone left outside the gated community of American politics. It trembles before liars with video cameras. It jumps at shadows. It had better hope that the people on the lawn in Madison stay there. They’re really all that’s left.

FUCK AND YES. So true. Every last word.

On seven — yes, seven — separate occasions, the characters on the show ate pizza with forks and knives — without calling attention to it. So fucking weird.

This is wonderful: a comedian watched every single episode of “Two and a Half Men” — 74.5 hours’ worth — in a row. The resulting recap is hilarious. Somewhat surprisingly, he didn’t hate it. (He kind of did, but not as much as I expected.)
