Two Funny Things to Read

First, McSweeney’s has a hilarious article by Devorah Blachor. The title gives it all away: “I don’t hate women candidates — I just hated Hillary and coincidentally I’m starting to hate Elizabeth Warren”. But it is definitely worth a read.

The second article, by Vicky Alvear Shecter, also gives some of the punchline away: “What happened when a Trump supporter challenged me about The Wall”. But it gives a really good list of arguments about why building a wall is not just a stupid idea, but a really bad thing to do. The best part? All of the arguments are taken from conservative sources, complete with links.

    It is when racism overtakes genuine conservative principles, people become in favor of wall.

    I cannot see any intellectual conservative reason (being conservative myself) for wall, and lots of reasons to oppose it.

    As far as Elizabeth Warren is concerned, she seems to be close to Bernie Sanders in ideology, but more academic (and somewhat boring due to academic in nature). I do not think she can energize enough people (being less chrismatic) to win nomination. But again, I am outsider, so not sure how democrats will end up voting in primaries.
