AL explains why a Trump impeachment may FINALLY be here, and why the GOP wants Democrats to do it–and suffer the blowback.
AL details his life-long struggle against Coastsplaining–and how most of the issues coastal liberals talk about (from immigration to abortion to guns to income inequality) actually affect “flyover country” more directly. Then, I propose that Trickle Down Economics got its earliest start in Plantation Economics.
Before he gets impeached, AL dives deep into a deceptively-simple question to wonder if Trumpland (where more than half the country hates you, and the other 40% loves you) isn’t really heaven for Donald–the most talked about man in the world.
AL wonders why we don’t hear more about pretty privilege, and wonders if it’s really worse to be desired by gross people than to be gross and undesired.

Why do all liberal movements experience such mission creep? What is it about the heart of liberals—always well-meaning in the beginning, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions—that keeps drifting to America’s most puritanical instincts? Why can “Occupy Wall Street,” “Black Lives Matter,” Sandernistas, the #MeToo Mafia, and other solid movements not… Read More »
I’m not sure there’s a woman alive I feel less sorry for than Monica Lewinsky. And before you start in that I’m slut-shaming her, keep in mind that I fully respected her decision to sleep with the President…until she didn’t, retroactively slut-shaming herself after listening to the rightwing’s and some women’s insistence for two decades that she… Read More »
