One of my friends of many years was obsessed with extraterrestrials and how they supposedly kidnap people and then conduct sexual experiments on their victims. He would dream about these visitations and put on a public performance of the "Grays" riding their victims to orgasm.
I had a female friend who would call me at odd hours of the night and ask me to talk to her because she had a nightmare where the witches were riding her. Apparently, my voice and a late night visit were the only things that could calm her.
We all have burdens to carry in life.
And we all have our own obsessions.
I would like to thank you for indulging mine these last few days.
Jonathan Chait appeared on MSNBC last night.
His discussion with Salon.com's Brittney Cooper and Chris Hayes on MSNBC was a profound letdown.
There, Chait managed to further the twisted logic of white victimology and excuse-making for white supremacy with his closing comment that yes, racism may be all over the Republican Party's behavior but somehow the public is done a disservice when the media discusses it.
I riddle you that one.
Friday is a semi-open thread salon day here on WARN. I spent time on the Chait fracas because I was mesmerized by the Yellow King. During that moment what other matters of public concern were we not discussing?
