Dreaming of Seuss Juice

I wanted to say a bit about the manufactured controversy over Dr. Seuss, which is obviously being totally misrepresented by conservatives. It’s the Seuss estate that decided to stop publishing six particular books, so it isn’t some kind of government … Continue reading

The Mike Is Bugged

I have to admit that I didn’t actually see the fly on Mike Pence’s head at the debate last night. I did see pictures of it on Twitter, though, and a lot of related jokes. I guess we need a … Continue reading

Too Much Malarkey

I watched the debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden last night, so I might as well comment on that and related political issues. Do people really change their minds about whom to vote for based on debates? It’s not … Continue reading
