Democrats Choosing These Clintonites To Read Are G…

Poking around Medium today, I came across this noxious little item, " ," by Sasha Stone and Ryan Adams. It's written by a pair of delusional Clintonites, still trying to relitigate the 2016 presidential campaign, when their candidate failed so miserably. Maybe it was because I've had a slow last two weeks. Maybe I'm still rolling my eyes at my recent encounter with Susan Bordo's absolutely brainless, anti-historical effort to deify Hillary Clinton. Whatever the reason, the article seems to have caught me at an odd time and really rubbed me the wrong way. I wrote a reply for its comments section, ran long and decided to turn the reply into an article itself, addressed to its authors:   "Hillary was and is incredibly popular."   That's the key line in your article, because it's emblematic of the kind of delusional garbage "thinkin…

Stuff It

I grew up in a dichotomous environment. My mother loved stuff. She spent thousands and thousands of dollars on innovative gadgets, most of which she never learned how to use, most of which we had to dispose of when she moved from the big house. The best of these was a knitting machine, an elaborate …
