Doesn't Spanky favour Hannity more that Carlson? I seem to recall that they had late-night phonecalls, where Hannity would tell the orange one what a magnificent specimen he was.

Periodic reminder that Oregon as a state was founded as a racist white utopia where Black people were not legally allowed to live until 1925, and that the racist clauses in the state constitution were not formally repealed until 2002.

Portland is an exception. The rest of the state is... well, remember the Malheur siege?

So Tucker Carlson as the next Trump?

He's completely batshit.

TheSwearingBear - 03 May 2021 06:01:58 (#14 of 1856)

he needs anointment by the orange buffoon. and full support thereafter.

Fat chance of that.

Ah, they’re all grownups, presumably they know each other from Glenn’s Guardian days, and love bitching about each other.

Following it backwards, the Greenwald snark was prompted by James Ball in his article poking Greenwald with a pointy stick. If you needle somebody in the national press, they’re likely to bark back at you.

The controversial names Substack is hosting heighten that problem: one of the platform’s biggest draws, lawyer turned journalist Glenn Greenwald, has a reputation of a man able and willing to start 10 new lifelong grudges a day on Twitter.

I see he (James Ball of the Guardian) annoyed Graham Linehan also, in the same article.

<<The plot to rewrite the USC:>>

the stupidity is remarkable, slim. but one thing to recall -- even if there were a convention, no proposed amendment could take effect until ratified by 3/4 of the states.

Moschops - 03 May 2021 13:37:43 (#23 of 1856)

Any chance of a change of the 2nd being thrown in?

brooklyn - 03 May 2021 13:40:08 (#24 of 1856)

nope. but I like the way you think.

Tinymcsmithy - 03 May 2021 15:21:27 (#25 of 1856)

They need an amendment to the 2nd amendment that guarantees the right to bear arms, but only while dressed as a pantomime rabbit with bunny ears and a tutu.

If you need to slaughter livestock for burnt offerings, or select virgins for blood sacrifices, do so now.
