Geez Louise. What a racket. What a mess.

Folks, never put yourself below others (Amy Chua + 1, Yale, Ivy League, ANYTHING) because they appear to be somehow superior to yourself. To do so would always be an error.

My highlights are below:

This is the trash that the Republican Party scrapes up to be a Supreme Court Justice. In the United States of America. In 2018. Very impressive.

CNN: Two Republican senators urge committee to hear out Kavanaugh accuser before vote https://www.diigo.com/annotated/7ba20bf547894b5079c37ae8258904a6

Yeah. 🙂 I think the least you could do is take the hour or so to hear out the accuser before the vote; you know, the vote to decide who’s going to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States of America for life.🖕

A standout turn from the often under-utilized actor is one of the many joys of this carefully choreographed dinner party satire that acts as a cutting allegory of Trump’s America

I could not have put this any better myself I’m sure.  So I’ll just post this as is.  🙂  I highly endorse the use of the word “savage” in the lede.

I hope you watch the movie and enjoy it!

I watched this movie at a time in my life when I could probably most feel it.  I think it deserves to be linked with Movie Recommendation: The New Age in that context.

Man, this really says bad, bad things about the Democratic Party. :-\ This was a clear, stark choice between a progressive, forward-thinking, unbeholden, plain-spoken candidate and a classic, white-male supremacist, patriarch figure, good guy, good fella, mansplaining, well-moneyed, slickster con man; and New York, a supposed bastion of liberalism picked the con man. Hopefully those actual Democrats, progressives, working people, principled individuals in those flyover states turn out in numbers sufficient not only to defeat the obviously rotten-to-the-core, wicked Republican Party but the self-serving, Wall Street-genuflecting, “centrist”, game-playing insiders within their own party.
