Exploding international—the scenes, the sounds:

— Jews and Mormons are massively overrepresented in the Senate.

— The ongoing crisis of capitalism.

— Harry Reid wants to force a Senate vote on Medicare privatization.

— Allen West’s phallocentric theory of deficit reduction.

— Dylan Matthews is wrong on the Internet; Sam Harris can be understood as a “Cornell realist” and it all hangs together, though to me this whole gestalt is unpersuasive.

— Baratunde on Obama’s surrender to Trump.

Think I’m going to do all Canadian songs until the big election in the True North. Today it’s my favorite New Pornographers song, “All For Swinging You Around”.
