As Betsy Rothstein notes, last night Melania Trump plagiarized material from a 2008 Michelle Obama speech. Hey, if you're gonna steal, steal from the... um...
Here's today's terror attack. Or should I say this evening's terror attack? They seem to be becoming an hourly occurrence.
Gavin Eugene Long was an angry racist who praised Dallas cop-killer Micah Xavier Johnson. He was a black supremacist. On Sunday, he killed three Baton Rouge police officers after luring them in with a 911 call. He was an evil, cowardly, murdering piece of crap.
Donald Trump is going to be the GOP nominee for president, whether you like it or not. (If you do like it, congratulations. Why are you still so angry?) A lot of people are going to protest in Cleveland this week, which is their right. And I'm going to laugh at them, which is my right. It works out great for everybody. This is America, at least for now.
If you're still trying to process what happened in Nice, France, Louise Mensch at Heat Street has some news that might help you understand the sort of people we're dealing with.
I'm seeing some dumb headlines this morning, and they reflect something I've been seeing for a while, so I figure it's time to make a no-doubt-futile effort to address it.
Get ready to laugh. If you don't laugh, keep watching it until you do laugh. You need to get used to this, because you're going to see a lot more of it over the next eight years.
If you don't know who Dylan Noble was, don't blame me.
Conservatives are really excited about the future of the Republican Party, thanks to guys like Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich. So this is really great news.

Did you know that there's a new phone game called Pokémon Go? Of course you do. It's all anyone can f***ing talk about, suddenly. It's a game, and you can get it on your phone, and it's Pokémon, and you're obligated to know what in the world that means or else you're a loser. (Hooray for 2016.) But don't worry, it will only take a few minutes to get you up to speed. After this, you'll know absolutely everything you need to know about Pokémon Go. Let's do this!
The following blog post is racist because it rejects the idea that killing cops helps black people. Apologies in advance.
Last week in Dallas, five police officers were murdered for the color of their skin. Micah Xavier Johnson said he wanted to kill white people, and he did. And if you don't think the memorial service for those officers is a good venue for scolding white people, you're a racist.
"Hand. The hand, Bernie..."
In 2016 America, it seems like not a day goes by without news of a mass shooting. Whether the shooters are racist white Tea Partiers, or whether their motives are unknown and unknowable, all of them have one thing in common: evil, evil guns.
The identity of the police officer in the following story is being protected, so there are two possible responses to it. If the cop is white, then this young man's death is clearly a case of racism. If the cop is black, it's a case of institutional racism.
Remember when hundreds of German women were sexually assaulted by gangs of Muslims on New Year's Eve? Yeah, well, it turns out that's not really true.
I know it's racist to put hate-facts in a headline like that. Oh well.
