Remainders: Sorry If It's Less Funny Today Edition

1. GOP convention goers might think about avoiding Guiliani's restaurant picks. Rudy: "Located in the meatpacking district, this 'old fashioned' steak house is a long time favorite." Department of Health: "Live animal present in food storage, preparation, or service area." [Villiage Voice]


2. Scott Sforza, Head of Productions, White House Studios: "It's exciting to hear we're buying the rights to a new war picture, even if sellthrough on the last one is underperforming in both domestic and foreign." [Greg.org]

3. Alex Kerry, proving she has what it takes to be a first daughter: "I’ll need to become addicted to some drug... if I want to survive this campaign." [Political Wire]

4. Someone's hiring: "We’re also on the prowl for insider’s insiders — columnists who can get the juicy D.C. gossip and make it a must-read for the power elite and those who aspire to power." If you get the job, please tell us how you do this! [MediaBistro]

5. Bill O'Reilly, spelling bee champ: "The left wingers on the radio were saying Edwards was born in Bethlehem and is very near the baby Jesus. Now I ask you, how much of this bilge, B-I-L-G-E, bilge, can we take?" [FoxNews via LowCulture]

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.
