Jonathan Last writes that we should hope that there is no tape. Unfortunately, I certainly wouldn’t bet on it.
Is it the future of the Democrats?
I hope so, because if so, it means, finally, the death of this old horrific, racist, and now totalitarian political party.
An interesting candid interview, with bonus knowledgable commentary on the crudeness of Trump.
[Update late afternoon]
Sorry about originally misspelling his name “Gillette.” Guess it’s because I’ve always thought he was a pretty sharp guy.
If you have an hour or so, an interesting discussion between Nick Gillespie and Jonah Goldberg.
Every television show you watch, every movie, every woman’s magazine, every comedian, and, yes, every news program tells you you suck. Your country sucks. Your culture sucks. Your religion and your morals suck. And you personally are one of those dumb-ass racists who clings to his Bible and talks funny.
If you believe your country should vet its immigrants, you’re racist. If you voted for Donald Trump, you’re racist. If you make a joke about Barack Obama on Facebook, you’re racist twice. If you think motherhood is a woman’s highest calling, you’re sexist. If you take it ill when Islamists blow you up in the name of their nasty little god, you’re Islamophobic. If you know that a man is a man even if he says he’s a woman, you’re transphobic. If you think it’s fair to debate whether homosexual actions are moral or not, you’re homophobic.
Every day. From every outlet. All the time. And now people are angry. Wonder why.
New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger says he told Trump his anti-press rhetoric could lead to violence. But the media’s anti-Trump rhetoric already has led to violence: public officials rat-packed and bullied, Trump supporters harassed, White House spokes-lady Sarah Sanders having to live under guard. And yet when Sanders pointed this out to Look-At-Me-I’m-Jim Acosta, Acosta stormed out of the room. Hell, if he doesn’t want to hear the truth, he could just stay home and watch CNN.
Trump didn’t create antipathy to the press. He just tapped into it. I’d have done the same thing, but less crudely. After all, it’s what bloggers have been doing for many years now.
I’m on the schedule to speak about space property rights on in a plenary session on Sunday morning.
I don’t know why it would be surprising that women like watching it. As the article notes, most pr0n is made for men, and not particularly debonair men. If I never again see fellatio in pr0n, it would be too soon. I really do think that the proliferation of terrible pr0n is a cause of a lot of sexual dissatisfaction among millennials, many of whom likely don’t know what good sex is, because they don’t understand how unrealistic most pr0n is.

OK, this is weird.
No, this isn’t about the upper stage. Glad someone is asking the important questions:
Serious question for #medtwitter: If you show up at a code, and the patient is a centaur who had a cardiac arrest, ignoring the joules question, where do you think the defib pads should go? A, assuming the heart is in the human part, or B, assuming the heart is in the horse part? pic.twitter.com/OJt9haEgx3

The replies are great.
Heh. The Egyptian zoo shows Democrats their path to victory in November.
