Replying to @JewishCurrents: Attempts to look forward are met by dense fog. Do we pay taxes? Can we pay rent? Will students graduate—and into what?…

Quoted @DavidKlion

I wrote a take for @thedailybeast on 1968 parallels, the looming virtual convention, and why Democrats can't afford to alienate everyone under 45. It's members-only for now but should be unlocked tomorrow I think.

Replying to @NoahShachtman: Really glad to have @DavidKlion in our pages.

Attempts to look forward are met by dense fog. Do we pay taxes? Can we pay rent? Will students graduate—and into what? Will our parents live? When is the next haircut, the next wedding? We are knee-deep in death, yet there is no next funeral.

Quoted @marcatracy

a dispatch by @AsteadWesley from MILWAUKEE notes that it is even easier to vote in suburban Waukesha County. The most heavily black and Democratic part of Wisconsin has the greatest obstacles to the ballot.

They are going to repeat this in every city they can across the entire country in November, and Democrats are not going to do anything about it, and then when the Republicans win you’re going to blame Susan Sarandon

Quoted @Lis_Smith

I wrote about how Dr. Fauci is “pulling a @PeteButtigieg” with his brilliant media strategy and what public officials can learn from it.

I can't get over how Tom Friedman wrote a column defending MBS like a week after MBS *murdered Tom Friedman's friend Jamal Khashoggi in cold blood*. He's dumb and out of touch, yes, but also a true sociopath.

Anyway I'm no Biden fan but I trust him to do better than this.

Andrew will demand reporters provide him with statistics about black men’s genitals, and put junk race science on the cover of his magazine, but determing why a plague is disproportionately affecting certain communities is beyond the bounds of legitimate scientific inquiry.

Quoted @BillKristol

1. Wisconsin is the fire bell in the night. If we want to avoid what could well be a genuine crisis of democracy in November, the federal government has to appropriate funds for vote by mail and other preparations, and states need to move promptly to implement them.

Bill Kristol championed, I believe, 3 of the 5 justices who ruled in favor of this unconscionable primary last night. He even led the effort to replace GWBush’s preferred nominee Harriet Miers with the more doctrinaire right-winger Alito.

Quoted @sarahmucha

Joe Biden today on @BernieSanders: "And so, if I'm the nominee I can tell you one thing: I would very much want Bernie to be part of the journey, not as a vice presidential nominee but just engaging in all the things that he's worked so hard to do, many of which I agree with."

This is the kind of language one uses to smooth over a romantic rejection or a layoff

Joe Biden, yesterday:
-Had a “warm” chat with the President who has an enormous amount of blood on his hands, and may be profiting off the pandemic.
-Sided with the Republican controlled WI state assembly and state Suprme Court forcing people to risk their lives to vote today.

I have no beef with Sirota at all, just thought these paired well.
