These elites. They are all in bed of each other.

Media, Party, Academia,Government, Legislature they are all just labels designed to lull people to think there are serious differences between these elites. In reality, there is a striking unanimity on all major Issues.

It is one way class war. War from Top toward Bottom.

That is surprising! When I learned that Jack Webb was married to Julie London, that was weird, too. Didja ever see the original Dragnet movie? Civil rights being violated left and right . . . but it was justified, because . . . uh, because . . . because Shut Up, that's why . . .

Now if Jack Webb had been married to John Yoo it would have all made sense.

If John Yoo can find a wife I don't know what my excuse is-- good thing my family doesn't know about this.

Whenever I hear about things like this, I always seem to end up thinking about the fact that Kurt Vonnegut's daughter was once married to Geraldo Rivera.

Isn't it one of the rules of polite society that people don't have to explain their spouses, just introduce them?
