Why Hillary: Assessing The Pros And Cons, Plus: Gov. Jerry Brown Endorses Old Foe Comments (0)

Aaron Loeb lays out the case for, and the case against, Hillary Clinton in clear prose at Medium.

While he lays out the negatives and positives, you know how sensible it's all going to be from the intro:

There are women alive today in the United States who were born without the right to vote. We are on the verge of nominating the first woman in our history to be a major-party candidate. On the other side, we are on the verge of nominating the first major-party candidate to have never held political office since Eisenhower. Eisenhower beat Hitler. Donald Trump thinks Hitler had a lot of good ideas.

This is not politicking and spinning, this is just reality.

California Gov. Jerry Brown, while praising Sanders, has come out and endorsed Hillary, a week ahead of his state's primary vote:

The general election has already begun. Hillary Clinton, with her long experience, especially as Secretary of State, has a firm grasp of the issues and will be prepared to lead our country on day one. Next January, I want to be sure that it is Hillary Clinton who takes the oath of office, not Donald Trump.

In other news, Trump's actual wealth is given some side-eye by Politico, which suggests he is—yes—rich, but that a great deal of his money is accounted for via creative bookkeeping. Also, slimy Martin Shkreli has un-endorsed Trump, or rather, claims he never really endorsed him in the first place.

*widget boy cultureReport: Debbie Wasserman Schultz may exit before the Democratic convention. Who would miss her, exactly?

*widget boy cultureHillary plays “Who'd You Rather?: VP Edition” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Sorry, Bernie, but she picked pretend-prez Tony Goldwyn over you. Airs today.

*widget boy cultureHillary goes after Trump's populism, highlighting his on-the-record bragging that he could cash in on the housing crash in 2006/2007.

*widget boy cultureZimmerman says he sold the gun he used to murder Trayvon Martin because he's “sick of Hillary Clinton's anti-gun rhetoric.” Buyer will give to son for his b'day.

6-PACK/politics — Starr Witness + Unpopularity Contest + Hillary SHOULD Win In A Landslide + Belatedly Ready For Hillary + Bernie's Convention Muscle + McAuliffe Confident, But In Shock! Comments (0)

*widget boy cultureKenneth Starr, who hounded Bill Clinton in the '90s, praises the former POTUS's empathy and redemptive work out of office, sounds regretful.

*widget boy cultureMost of America either dislikes or hates both Hillary Clinton (admired by only 19%) and Donald Trump (admired by only 10%).

*widget boy cultureEvery knowledgable election expert is predicting an electoral-college landslide for Hillary Clinton. I'm not going to count on anything.

*widget boy cultureHow one Bernie Sanders supporter is going from feeling the Bern to getting ready for Hillary.

*widget boy cultureBernie is going to lose, but that “already won” argument is bearing fruit—he'll have more say in the platform this time than Hillary did in '08.

*widget boy cultureVirginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe sounds very confident that the federal probe of donations to his campaign won't bring him down.

*widget boy cultureIn a diplomatic show of party unity, Bernie Sanders says the Democrats are “courting disaster” if they nominate Hillary “simply to protect the status quo.”

*widget boy cultureFEC issues 639-page document on election-law violations by the Sanders campaign, a problem Hillary and Trump don't have. (And for which Hillary would be hanged.)

*widget boy culture1%er T. Boone Pickens backs Trump & his Muslim ban, jokes about old age: “I do think Donald Trump is smart enough that he is going to bring in people to help him.”

*widget boy cultureTed Cruz is still trying to wreak havoc with delegates, focusing on his home state of Texas, continues to be (minor) thorn in Trump's side.

*widget boy cultureThe fifth major HB2 lawsuit in North Carolina is the most bizarre. What's next, suing individual urinals?

*widget boy cultureGay marriage won, but other liberal causes might have a far tougher time going forward. Which is why this gay blogger will keep on posting about them.

6a00d8341c2ca253ef01bb08e9cf88970d-800wiA baker's dozen of the hottest-ever rugby studs. You'll have to take Wicked Gay Blog's word for it as to their sport; most are, um, uniformless.

Sniff This: Model Jordie Caskey Launches Fragrance Comments (0)

PnV/Fashionably Male has a brand-new Q&A with model Jordie Caskey, whose latest project is his own fragrance: The Evergreen Woodsman. I'm guessing pine is somewhere in the mix?

Caskey says:

I wanted to develop a product that I would be passionate about, and being a Virgo (Earth sign), I find lots of inspiration in forests and nature in general. I also wanted the product to be health-conscious, so I spent a year and a half experimenting and perfecting the recipe. I’m very happy with what I have created. Every ingredient in the fragrance is all-natural, and I’m very proud of that. It’s always intimidating when you present a new creation to the world; especially one that is a first-time endeavor. I’m lucky that modeling allowed me to build a following on social media prior to releasing The Evergreen Woodsman. Having that audience already established took some of the anxiety away, and I’m very happy with the response!

Cher couldn't make hers work, but that was prior to social media—here's hoping Jordie's fragrance leads to the sweet smell of success

Junk Mail: Trend Of Guys Sending Dirty Pics Jump-Starts Underwear Sales Comments (0)

Now that every guy from puberty through deathbed is actively engaged in making public pictures of his privates, a funny thing is happening—they're buying more underwear.

Even though the point is to show what lives inside the underwear, men seem to be opting to wear underwear and let it all hang out. This means they can't be caught wearing schlumpy shorts, leading to a big uptick in sales of skivvies. Via the New York Post:

“As these young guys are sexting more they don’t want to be caught in their grandfather’s underwear,” said Robin Lewis, chief executive of The Robin Report, an industry newsletter.

Stronger sales of men’s underwear also reflect the rise of premium purveyors, including Tommy John, Mack Weldon and 2(X)ist, in an industry that has traditionally been for many men an afterthought.

“The elastic would have to wear out before men would buy new underwear,” said Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst at NPD Group. “Men’s underwear purchases were driven by replenishment.”

I can honestly say I have never turned my nose up at anything emerging from the front or back of a pair of underwear just because the underwear was so last season. I'm gay, but I'm not that gay.
