Youth Turnout

Everybody keeps complaining that young people don’t vote. But how are they supposed to know there’s a primary going on, and which state is on what day, and where to go, or that you need to do any going?

No, seriously.

Please don’t say TV because what are you, eighty?

And please don’t say Facebook because what are you, fifty?

And definitely don’t say Twitter because what are you, forty?

I can’t imagine what could have induced me to find out about primaries when I was under 30, so I can’t give any recommendations as to how to change this. The only proactive thing to do here is not to become dependent on the “youth turnout.”


I’m so shocked that dragging around gay-bashing Jew-baiting imams and getting bogged down in discussions over the wonderfulness of Fidel Castro didn’t help Bernie win Michigan. It looked like Michiganders were desperate for precisely that.

I wonder, if Bernie’s plan had been to lose, what could he have done differently?

Movie Notes: The Invisible Man

I was actually going to wait to see The Hunt, which is a movie that had almost gotten banned by the right-wing version of sensitive snowflakes because it supposedly “encourages violence against Trump supporters.” But I don’t know if theaters will stay open next week, so I went to see this movie instead to further my movie resolution goals.

It’s a nice movie, very typically Hollywood. I was right when I said a little while ago that there’s now a trend for ugly actresses in Hollywood. First, there was that divorce movie where a gorgeous actress made herself look hideous to play… a gorgeous actress. And now there’s this movie where the lead role went to that dumpy Peggy character from Mad Men. She’s perfectly normal-looking for a regular person but not for a Hollywood actress. Curiously, this trend doesn’t touch male actors, it seems. The male lead in The Invisible Man is this stunningly gorgeous black actor with insane musculature.

Her looks aside, the Peggy actress is actually quite good at acting. So I’m glad that Hollywood is abandoning its obsession with inhumanly pretty androids with zero acting skills.

I responsibly went to the earliest showing, so it was just me and one other viewer in the room. Nice movie, very forgettable, but not in the least annoying.


Biden just told a unionized worker in Michigan “you are full of shit.” Which is ok, a worker in a hard hat can most certainly hear it and not faint.

But imagine him or Bernie or whomever having the balls to say this to some famous Twittertwat wokester. That would be a landslide win right there.


In the meantime, Bernie is saying he won’t close the borders even to stop a pandemic and drags some anti-semitic Arabic-speaking Imam to the rallies with him. This is an unconventional way of appealing to the workers in Michigan, but the tiny group of rich wokesters Bernie keeps trying to attract to must be very pleased.

Before, we were told he was fighting for the crazy fringe’s attention with Warren. What’s the excuse now? Has he given up? Does he have no intention of making his case in the general?

Ok, whatever. I can’t care anymore.

Local Coronavirus

A student from a wealthy family in STL came home from a trip to Italy and tested positive for the #WuFlu. The family was told to self-quarantine. But rich people are entitled, so the parents immediately started going out shopping, visiting beauty salons, etc.

Getting Americans to self-quarantine is going to be something else.
