McCrory Tries To Slither Away From Massive Backlash Against NC Comments (0)

Gov. Pat McCrory (R-North Carolina) is losing re-election in a new poll, and his state has lost the pleasures of porn site XHamster due to its anti-LGBT law.

McCrory tried to address the issue (read: make it go away) with a pathetic video announcement of nothing much.

It's not going away, Gov. McCrory.

Hillary Is Not A Witch: For Liberals Who Think She Should Be Dunked In Water To See If She Floats Comments (0)
 

My *official* Hillary Clinton endorsement. "I see no “revolution” coming in the poll results. Bernie’s support comes...

Posted by Elie Mystal on Friday, April 8, 2016

I think Elie Mystal wrote the best, most mercilessly qualified endorsement of Hillary Clinton possible.

I love Hillary, but recognize her flaws, and boy, does Elie Mystal recognize her flaws. In the context of the endorsement, this paragraph made me laugh in a to-keep-from-crying way:

Hillary’s foreign policy is terrifying. If elected, she will kill people. Many of them will be terrorists and some of them will be criminals, but all of them will be people and she will not let other, non-terrorist people, stand in the way of killing the people she thinks we need to kill. And when she’s not killing people, she will be spying on people in case she needs to kill those people later.

Yeah, that's not exactly rose-colored glasses, unless that's a reflection of the blood on the lenses.

There is also high praise for Bernie:

I agree with Bernie Sanders on almost every policy issue at the macro level. I do, in fact, think the game is rigged for millionaires and billionaires. I like peace. I think his proposed reforms for criminal justice will do more for black and brown people than anything any of the other candidates are suggesting. I think climate change is real, and a real problem.

But Mystal's summary of why Bernie has failed is unflinching:

After many speeches and debates, I see no “revolution” coming in the poll results. Bernie’s support comes from educated white males, young white women, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and the Screen Actors Guild. That’s not a political revolution, that’s the check out line at Whole Foods. 

Most importantly, there is an effort to pick apart the hate some liberals have for Hillary:

She is authentic; she is naturally bad at running for office and that painfully shows through at almost all points. But maybe you would be bad at campaigning too if you had been subjected to over two decades of vicious and often contradictory political attacks.

We’ve forced Hillary Clinton to change her hair, her clothes, and her accent. We’ve criticized her for taking too prominent a role during the Bill Clinton administration, then questioned whether being First “Lady” qualified her to run for office. She’s been the most investigated politician since Richard Nixon, yet has never been found to have committed a crime. People have said she has all of the “Clinton baggage” but none of the “Clinton charisma,” which is odd because the “baggage” is her husband cheating on her and the “charisma” is what allows her philandering husband who perjured himself to be loved, while she’s gets called “untrustworthy.” We told her she was too uncompromising in the 1993 health care debate, and now tell her she comprises too much. She’s the most detail-oriented major party candidate since... Bobby Kennedy? But when she shows her substance, we call her “boring.” We call her a political robot, but when she tries to throw away a meaningless platitude at some old lady’s funeral, we lose our minds.

In conclusion:

Hillary Clinton is not a secret Republican. She’s not a witch. She’s not going to jail. She’s a hawkish left-of-center policy wonk. She believes in incremental change and compromise. She’d rather pass a crappy law that has some positive outcomes than watch a great law die in committee. She believes in government, she thinks it does work and can work.

That’s not particularly inspiring. Bernie is sitting there telling us that if we clap really hard, Tinkerbell will live. Hillary is like, “That bitch is dead, I shot her. It’s time to grow up.”

It's a great piece. Read every bit of it here.

Panama Leaks Claim Icelandic PM Comments (0)

Dastardly Iceland PM resigns over his and his wife's offshore accounts and his clear conflict of interest involving working on banking issues when he secretly owned stock in the same banks.

The Panama Leaks are really going to have a ripple effect.

 
Greg Louganis To Get His First-Ever Wheaties Box Comments (0)

Over 30 years after his 1984 sweep of the 3m and 10m diving events in the Summer Olympics, out athlete Greg Louganis will finally be honored with a Wheaties box.

An online petition for Louganis to receive the honor attracted 41,000 signatures. It seems pretty safe to guess that homophobia kept Louganis off the box in the '80s; he didn't come out until 1994, but certainly there were plenty of rumors, and those may well have led Wheaties to back away from the champion diver.

Four-time gold medalist Janet Evans and Guinness World Record title-holder Edwin Moses—who along with Louganis were both previously overlooked—will also be honored with their own boxes.
