NYC's crumbling subways are a national laughingstock. America's daily supply of schadenfreude is more than exceeded with every viral pic of subway stations jampacked with sweaty, miserable New Yorkers. It's great. Ha ha!

It's an idea whose time has come. I want to be a white ally!
First, we were told that Ben Affleck was going to write, direct, and star in a standalone Batman movie. Then he was just going to write and star in it. Then Warner Bros. tossed his script. Now, it sounds like he might not have anything to do with it at all. If they have to replace him, who should don the cape and cowl?
Being the White House Press Secretary is a tough gig, even under the best of circumstances. Since the job was created in 1929, there have been 30 of them. The longest-serving press secretary was Stephen Early (12 years and 25 days, and then a few years later he came back to fill in for a couple of weeks), and the shortest-serving was Jerald terHorst (31 days). Sean Spicer stuck around for 182 days, but I'm sure his half a year on the job felt like half a lifetime. Spicer has come under a lot of criticism in that time, and dealt with a lot of mockery. But I'm going to miss him, and here are the top 5 reasons why. Drum roll, please... Number 5!
‘Confederate’ Showrunner David Benioff: ‘Slavery Is The Worst Thing That Ever Happened In American History’
HBO's newly announced series Confederate doesn't even exist yet as anything more than a press release, but a lot of people seem to think they know exactly what it is and why it's bad. They're angry at the mere idea of it.
It's a start, I guess.
We've already heard how bad things are in 2017 from fake news legend Dan Rather. How about some deep thoughts from a subsequent generation of fake news?
Dr. Walter Palmer did absolutely wrong when he conquered Cecil the Lion, a dangerous animal that would've killed and eaten a human being without hesitation. And now Cecil's son has met the same fate, which is fine too.
According to Jeff Stein at Vox.com, Congressional Democrats have come up with a new slogan for 2018: "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages." That's terrific, obviously, but they might need a backup slogan in case they get sued by Papa John's. What say you, Dear Reader?
Yesterday HBO announced a new drama series from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the guys who write and produce Game of Thrones. The show will be called Confederate, and here's how HBO describes it:
Liberals love humanity. It's people they hate.
As information continues to trickle in about the shooting death of Justine Damond, it just becomes more and more heartbreaking. And the response of Minnesota authorities becomes less and less tolerable.
Today is National Hot Dog Day, according to whoever comes up with national days for things. That's as good an excuse as any to settle an age-old argument once and for all. The results of this scientific poll will be legally binding in perpetuity throughout the multiverse, so let's get it right, people!
As a blogger, federal law dictates that I must post something about Donald Trump at least once a day. Here it is.
As with most things lefties do, I've never really understood the worship of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. All an octogenarian Supreme Court justice has to do is be a woman and express the approved liberal opinions, and they idolize her. She's the "Notorious RBG." She inspires adorable, adoring GIFs.
Nothing about this story adds up. Every answer just leads to more questions.
Deedra Abboud is a Democrat in Arizona who's running against Senator Jeff Flake. She's also a Muslim. Yesterday she put up a Facebook post praising America's separation of church and state. And, because it's the Internet, she got a lot of hateful comments.
Animals are dumb. With very few exceptions, I hate them all. Until today I didn't hate bobcats more than, say, pandas. But that has now changed.
Kid Rock is running for U.S. Senate, possibly. Al Franken actually won, which still seems weird. Pretty much every sitting senator is living proof that even a houseplant could get elected. So why shouldn't Bruce Jenner run? Er, I mean Caitlyn. And if he or she does run, he or she will need a slogan. Let's help him or her out!
