Is that a Campaign Contribution Bundle You Have in Your Pocket or Are You Just Happy to See Me?

Last Friday, the WSJ's editorial page observed that Supreme Court recently struck down yet another law "attempting to protect minors from sexually explicit material on the Internet," but "was only too happy last year to endorse the substantial limits on political speech that were part of the McCain-Feingold campaign-finance reform." Ever the free speech champions, the WSJ proposed that the Court's apparent hypocrisy could point to a way around McCain-Feingold: A "right-wing pornographer" (Vincent Gallo?) could make "a pro-Bush film featuring erotic scenes and put it on the Internet within 60 days of an election."


Is this the WSJ's way of hinting that Bush should replace Cheney with Jack Ryan?

Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
