Those are four of the foxiest ladies I've had the pleasure of meeting.
Wait, there are punchlines on Portlandia?
This must be why Marty Hughley can't write a negative review.
You might as well throw in Bourne, too. And call Joseph Campbell.
In the spirit of Prof. Boghossian, someone needs to call Tonry out on his bullshit. He claims that there's things that Pres. Obama can be doing right now to work with Republicans while also bashing the Affordable Care Act as watered down. Obama tried his damnest to get Republicans to agree to a plan that they themselves proposed 20 years prior, but they wouldn't. He watered it down to make it palatable to the conservative members of his own party, but mostly in failed attempt to get 3 moderate Republican Senators to vote in favor. So somehow the lesson he was suppose to learn is to work with Republicans?
Really, though, does Tonry know anything about politics?
I ask that because his summary about the kind of campaign he wishes Obama would run must be a whip-it induced fantasy. First off, Obama is doing EXACTLY what he said he would, or trying. His eloquence was always, always, always backed up by practicality. (He's not against all wars, just dumb ones. Or one of his favorite MLK quotes, "the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.") But also, if he could win the election by inspiring hordes of people, he'd do it. Guaran-fucking-teed. It's just not possible. The Democrats know that. That's why his speech at the convention was so relatively boring. It's more important for him to win than anything.
Finally, winning is winning. It doesn't matter if he wins by 1 electoral college vote or all of them. He's still the motherfucking President. He'll have the exact same power either way. Congress, all 535 members of it, will still be there. All nine member of the Supreme Court will still exist.
