K. Tempest Bradford suggested not reading white straight cis male authors for one year. Larry Correia reacted badly (as reported by Mike Glyer). John Scalzi reacted sanely. So what else is new?

Soft bigotry of low expectations

Rudy Giuliani actually has us debating whether President Obama loves our country. (One answer I like is "three-fifths as much.") Once again, a member of the Paul family (Rand this time) has said something reasonable on the question. (I blame unprotected contact with those DFH libertarians who think that Freedom should include things other than making money.) Every so often there's a Republican Special Olympics that someone wins by saying something obvious but (dare I say?) politically incorrect. Recently Dr. Ben Carson won a gold medal by pointing out that everyone should be vaccinated, but then he went to one of those elitist egghead med schools and probably knows all kinds of deep science stuff like women can't get gyno exams by swallowing a camera.

Thanx to Charles P. Pierce.

Ron Paul has noticed that his one sane idea has attracted companions of unwholesome pigmentation.

GamerGate terrorist says it was all a big joke. Once again, never attribute to cutting-edge performance art what can be adequately explained by stupidity.

I don't know what Known Stream is, but I like anyone who says, "The web is stronger with diverse voices. You are welcome here."

Sports Illustrated would have croaked years ago if it had to be just a sports magazine, but every year the Swimsuit Issue bails it out. Perhaps due to increasing financial desperation, this year's cover comes closer than ever to the fine line separating porn from fashion. (ObOnion: Vanessa Williams taints Miss America Pageant with Sexist Exploitation) Body Impolitic discusses.
