    on the flipside...

    No Sympathy for the Hillbilly
    Democrats need to stop trying to feel everyone’s pain, and hold on to their own anger.

    But for those of us who want to bring down the curtain on the Trump era as quickly as possible, this pandering to his voters raises a more immediate and practical concern: Is it a worthwhile political tactic that will actually help reverse Republican rule? Or is it another counterproductive detour into liberal guilt, self-flagellation, and political correctness of the sort that helped blind Democrats to the gravity of the Trump threat in the first place?

    While the right is expert at channeling darker emotions like anger into ruthless political action, the Democrats’ default inclination is still to feel everyone’s pain, hang their hats on hope, and enter the fray in a softened state of unilateral disarmament. “Stronger Together,” the Clinton-campaign slogan, sounded more like an invitation to join a food co-op than a call to arms.

    After the debacle of 2016, might the time have at last come for Democrats to weaponize their anger instead of swallowing it? Instead of studying how to talk to “real people,” might they start talking like real people? No more reading from wimpy scripts concocted by consultants and focus groups. (Clinton couldn’t even bring herself to name a favorite ice-cream flavor at one campaign stop.) Say in public what you say in private, even at the risk of pissing people off, including those in your own party. Better late than never to learn the lessons of Trump’s triumphant primary campaign that the Clinton campaign foolishly ignored.

    Say what you like, they have excellent taste in porn:

    They also have a way with memorable political criticism. First thing I've read in the papers for a while that made me do a double take (because almost nothing is surprising any longer):

    Republicans/right wingers moralising about sex while secretly fapping to porn and paying hookers to shit on them is a given. As often with right wingers, I wonder if they are genuinely (spiritually, you might say) hypocrites or if they just know that being anti-sex sells.

    Social conservatism is certainly electorally necessary for republicans given the unpopularity of fiscal conservatism.
