Incompetent D.C. Government Crooked (Also: PBR)

Wonkabout

It's been a while since we've explored the backwards world that is D.C. politics, so here goes: Some five months ago, when bike lanes and education were still the rage, Adrian Fenty, champion of white-people causes, was Mayor of D.C. But one can only get so far when backed by the PBR lobby, and so he was replaced by Vincent Gray who,it turns out, (allegedly) paid another man to try to undermine Fenty's campaign in return for a job. Whoops! In some circles this is illegal/ generally not a good idea. But let's focus on the more important things. D.C. has a new PBR dispensary: Touchdown on U Street.


D.C. may be well on its way to being “One City” plagued by corporation, cronyism, et cetera and so forth, but PBR is reasonably priced at this new sports bar on U Street.

Can you figure out what is missing from this wall at Touchdown? (Hint: There are 14 other ones in the bar.) That's right! It needs a fifteenth teevee here, for the sports.

Pretty soon, we're going to run out of things to put in mac and cheese. Maybe. Please? Though this combination works surprisingly well.

Look at those teevees in all their glory. But what is that beneath the teevee? Could that be art? While you take refuge in the bar for hours on the nicest of spring days, to watch football, cricket, dodge ball, or the exotic anti-American sport known as soccer, at least there will be some nice art nestled in the glare of flatscreen teevee for you to enjoy.

Touchdown opens today with 25% off all drafts, rail drinks, and food. They will also be offering other specials to mark the ancient celebration of boobs, beads, and booze affectionately referred to as “Fat Tuesday.”

Touchdown, 1334 U St. NW, Washington, DC 20009, 202-265-0708

ProPublica released a recording yesterday of children in a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention facility crying for their parents after being subjected to the tender mercies of the New Cruelty.

The children are distraught, sobbing, inconsolable (not that the Border Patrol agents seem especially interested in consoling them). As ProPublica notes, "They scream 'Mami' and 'Papá' over and over again, as if those are the only words they know." You do not want to listen. But maybe you must.


One Border Patrol agent makes a very amusing joke as he hears all the children crying: "Well, we have an orchestra here [...] What's missing is a conductor."

Can anyone doubt that SS guards made similar jokes as children were unloaded from boxcars?

Mark Sanford is all mopey because he just lost his cushy Congress job after Donald Trump said mean things about him on Twitter. This was not the expected ending of a distinguished career, which involved lying to his constituents as governor about his whereabouts because he was conducting a clandestine affair.
