    It’s bizarre whenever I hear Chris Matthews anymore. I used to like him as what I thought was an honest tough interviewer, even though I disagreed with him on so many things. Now he seems crazy – “It would be naive not to expect violence”. Was anyone really expecting violence from the 4th of July speech? If so, that seems crazy.

    I am fat.

    There is no medical reason for it – I just eat too much of the wrong things and work shifts – which includes latenight and overnight shifts – and I dont exercise enough.

    I think shame is a reaction to a breakdown in self control or discipline. Weather its the girl who lets men take advantage of her or a guy like me who should have started dieting 50 pounds ago. I think it stems from the same root cause.

    I’m with you. I enjoyed Hardball in the 90s and his perspective from the other side. His book on Kennedy and Nixon gave an interesting look at their similarities. He’s been off the rails for a long time now.

    That’s kinda true of all of them, Bill Maher was also watchable in the 90s when he was ABC late night.

    Well, given that AintiFa types show up…

    And given that the police don’t do anything about violent people in masks. I mean, if those masks were white and accompanied by robes and part of a hood, why, I would think they were supporting the Democrats. But since they wear black, they must be nothing like the KKK.

    Andrew is misinformed about Aladdin. There was very little wokeness in the film and was enjoyable as a spectacle of a foreign culture. Perhaps some mild feminism, but in the end the girl fell in love with the guy and they were married. There was some darkness to it as well. Besides, at some point you have to get over wanting to watch cartoons and read comic books.

    FWIW, I watched this episode on Youtube and the closed captioning translated “MAGA hat” as “maggot hat”. Accidental, I’m sure.
