Re: Politics & Current Events

i don't think there's a finer example of mlk's actual views and actions being co-opted by awful people than this: All these scumbags (from Mike Pence to the GOP twitter account) do it w/ a horsefeathering smirk on their faces. horsefeathers them all. If he were around today they’d be calling him a ...

No, but the NFL team that drafts him will forever be mocked for taking a 5'10" QB

And Kyler Murray will likely be more wealthy than if he stuck with baseball.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Wait, is this "the rotation is bad" thing like a bit or did all five original guys get raptured away last night? Is this the Leftovers and they're the cast of Perfect Strangers? They're not the Indians by any stretch, but it's a good rotation. Last year is just that. The rotation isn’t te...

WTF is PTR/Theo going to do at the deadline if the Cubs are sitting in 3rd place, 1 game out of the WC and 4 out of the central and he needs a TOR starter?

The sample of these types of polls are so well done scientifically that they can be incredibly accurate by sampling a very small number of people. So the aggregate size doesn’t matter.

They’re still the best team, the margin has been cut down but they’re still the best and if things go remotely
close to plan they aren’t finishing horsefeathering third or lower.

Yeah, Buzzfeed's longform stuff is topnotch. They really should rebrand that and the investigative reporting side of things for the benefit of the hot takers of the world.

Homie, no joke, his dropped with approval with Republicans is sitting around 83%. THAT'S the only number that will get the GOP to move. Why would they possibly give a horsefeathers about anyone else?

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump is running out of gimmicks. Before the Midterms, it was the Caravan. Their bag-o-tricks is empty. I think he's going to make a big Treaty with NK and spout about it to try to give him a bump, then NK is going to keep doing what they do.
