Who to Vote for

This tells you everything:

Failed Revival

I’m still boycotting MSNBC so I missed this story completely. I only found out because Tucker covered it today.

Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow tried to revive the Russia hoax yesterday by making some delusional claims about Russian oligarch co-signing Trump’s loans. You’ve got to be brain-damaged to believe such a story because it even sounds ridiculous. So now the poor bugger is apologizing and saying he made “an error in judgment” making this statement.

The saddest moment is when liars start to believe their own lies.

Reporting by Consensus

NYTimes is now amending published stories all day long to try to please the Twitter mobs. They are obviously still not pleased but the efforts continue.

What is this, reporting by consensus? “It’s not what happened but @ZiGGyZTweetZ is getting all sore, so let’s make him happy and edit the facts.”

A Haven of Plenty

Today, I visited a magical place, a haven of abundance and comfort within our university, a place where all your wishes come true instantly.

Of course, I’m talking about our Diversity and Inclusion Center.

We used to have a really cool on-campus museum but it was closed down a couple of years ago because there was no money to keep it going. The space was handed over to the Diversity Center. Which has all the money it could ever need.

I’m doing an event for them because if somebody is going to talk about Latin America for the “Latinxs Heritage Month,” at least it should be somebody with something to say. So I went over today to discuss the details, and it was a magical experience.

You are coming to the talk straight from a day of teaching? Of course, we’ll provide a 3-course meal before you start the lecture. How do you feel about dulce de leche cake for dessert?

Would you like large colorful posters to decorate the space? How about 50? We can put anything you need on them.

Would you like table decorations? Music? Flyers? Any number, any color scheme, any technology. Brochures dedicated to your favorite Hispanic personalities? Just say the word.

Back at my department, we can’t get $5 to buy a pizza for our student workers, so… it’s different. Hey, it’s almost like a lesson in class differences, so I definitely learned about diversity today.
