Washington Post finance columnist Michelle Singletary wants Americans to know that despite record-high gasoline and food prices, things aren't really as bad as you might think. During an appearance on MSNBC yesterday, she said that people need to stop complaining and realize there are plenty of people who are doing very well.

Following the very real threat to the life of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Republicans are reupping their efforts to protect judges on the court and their families.

You remember the Extreme Ithaca Liberal campaign theme used successfully by Republican Representative Tom Reed in my home district NY-23? The Extreme Ithaca Liberal theme was used to beat well-financed liberal challengers over the head with a caricature of Ithaca liberals.

I didn't want to write about Kevin Williamson. I even emailed Kemberlee and Mary earlier this evening and told them I "don't feel like writing about Kevin Williamson." If you don't know what I'm talking about, then you must not be on Twitter. Consider yourself lucky. Twitter is a pus pocket.

In the annals of unintentional liberal self-parody, there is a special place reserved for a column by Ruth Mayor, "I detest Trump, but a ‘redneck’ fixed my Prius with zip ties."

So it's basically virtue-signaling in the age of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
