That’s true but he ain’t going to resign.

I hope he gets the help he needs. I don’t wish him ill or anything.

Progressives have lost their damn minds.

I have a liberal friend who got his dander up a couple of years ago when I said Huckleberry Finn would be censored…..

Think of all the Oompa Loompas who had to live in the shadows for generations because of the hateful language of Dahl


Oompa Loompas are gender neutral


You my friend are a monster for not supporting this!

Imagine a job reviewing old classics for inappropriate content. “


“Yes, I am a professional standards compliance editor …yeah I work for a book publisher but as a paid censor. I don’t do it for anything other than money…do I actually believe this should be revised? Fuck no but…”

I did think that the Dahl estate was fully behind this decision
although should heirs really be responsible for art created by their parents?

Not really sure what the answer is here, but I would have been looking for my pitchfork if the Gov't or some school demanded this change
Can't belive I don't know where my pitchfork is, I used it all the time protesting back in the day

Ok, not that we were that worried, but a win is a win!

Virginia Democrat Jennifer McClellan defeated her Republican opponent in a special election Tuesday to win a seat in the House of Representatives.




Also, what the fuck is up with "resort fees" 
Is that really a pressing issue for Americans?  Reducing the price of Corona seems more important

Special election turnout is always wonky, but she won this by a much wider margin than McEachin beat the same Republican three-months ago.

Really like Jen -- she will be great here. Dawn Adams will likely run for (and get easily) her soon-to-be-vacated State Senate seat . . . which is going to clear the deck for the just-announced-he-won't-run-for-HoD-reelection Jeff Bourne to take 6 months off and become the party establishment front-runner/candidate for Richmond mayor next year.

I really like Jen too…. I wish she had been the nominee for Governor though I don’t think she would have won..


She was at UR three of the four years I was there (one year behind me) but I don’t have any recollection…we must have shared a few classes since even though polysci was one of my four majors it was my main one…

I think she might have won if she got the nom, but it was pretty clear she had no shot in that primary.

I think the Democratic governor candidate seat is Abigail Spanberger's in two years if she decides she wants it.

I heard yesterday that over $40 million was spent on this race for a judge
Highest ever by a margin of like 100

So I guess Dems would say money well spent

but not really sure I like the tenor of her latest screed

I'd just like to say that Sen. Dianne Feinstein is a girl boss and I hope she stays in the Senate forever, she's doing great!

Still not as cool as when he managed to fall up the steps of Air Force One two times in the same ascent.  I love this guy.

But also, glad Dem control of the Senate continues to pay off! https://www.washingtonpost.com/education/2023/06/01/senate-repeals-biden-student-loan-forgiveness/?utm_campaign=wp_main&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter
