Once Upon A Time in Milan (Out New Yorker-ing the New Yorker)

The New Yorker explored Benedetta briefly here.

Of course we went a few layers deeper.

SEN. PERDUE IS TOTALLY AGAINST FREEDOM

He believes that no one in Georgia should be able to eat what her or she wants.
Perdue is one of those insider-trading millionaires who sneer at electoral opponents who don’t eat exactly what he and his wife do. Perdue is the personification of sneering elitism.

You’d think Trump would be satisfied with the wreckage he’s already wrought on our country.

NOW THAT WE HAVE A THEOCRATIC SUPREME COURT

It would be good to recall John F. Kennedy’s words spoken in September, 1960 at the Greater Houston Ministerial Association, (quoted in Larry Tye’s Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon):

“When any man stands on the steps of the Capitol and takes the oath of office of President, he is swearing to uphold the separation of church and state. If he breaks his oath, he is not only committing a crime against the Constitution. . . he is committing a sin against God.”

BIDEN SETTING UP THE DEMS TO LOSE IN 2022

We thought that the Democratic establishment couldn’t get any more obtuse.

We were wrong.

Biden’s cabinet is shaping up to be dominated by regressive, superannuated war and deficit fiends.

He is thus giving the finger to the progressive base that got him elected.

And why not dis Bernie while you’re at it?

LINDSAY GRAHAM ATTEMPTED ELECTORAL FRAUD

and who snitched on him? Georgia’s Republican Attorney General.

One of those bridge-too-far kind of things.

TRUMP HAS INCITED MASS PSYCHOSIS IN THE U.S.

Thank you, Raw Story, for alerting us to South Dakota nurse Jodi Doering ‘s Twitter feed:

“I have a night off from the hospital. As I’m on my couch with my dog I can’t help but think of the Covid patients the last few days. The ones that stick out are those who still don’t believe the virus is real. The ones who scream at you for a magic medicine and that Joe Biden is going to ruin the USA. All while gasping for breath on 100% Vapotherm. They tell you there must be another reason they are sick. They call you names and ask why you have to wear all that ‘stuff’ because they don’t have COViD because it’s not real. . .These people really think this isn’t going to happen to them. And then they stop yelling at you when they get intubated.”

ABOUT THAT TROJAN HORSE GALLOPING INTO SOHO

The Mayor is upzoning NYC out of existence. His latest target is Soho/Noho, and both City Hall and its allied real estate developers dissemble shamelessly.

Andrew Berman wrote for City Limits.com his analysis of “Affordable Housing as Trojan Horse in Soho and Noho.”

“Dishonestly, they gloss over neighbors’ true objections to the plan’s overscaled towers of largely luxury housing, claiming opponents are resisting affordabele housing rather than new construction of a neighborhood-shattering scale.”

Berman identifies “the false dichotomy promulgated by real estate interests and the de Blasio administration that the only way to get new affordable housing in New York City is to grant massive bonuses to luxury and market-rate housing developers.These bonuses vastly increase the developers’ profits and the size of their new buildings, but require only a small payback of affordable housing in return.”

BIDEN SHOULD HAVE WON FLORIDA

and one reason he didn’t is the Democrats’ continued refusal to vanquish the promiscuously yet surgically applied “socialist” smear the GOP keeps throwing a them. It is now leading to alternate-reality backstory, for instance, certified moron Senator-elect Tommy Tubberville of Alabama, who now claims that WWII was waged to “fight the socialist agenda.”

Socialist subsidy for the rich is the bedrock of GOP policy, and yet Democrats don’t seem to want to drive that point home to voters. It would be nice as well, if they actually challenged GOP pols to explain what, in fact, they think that “socialism” actually is.
