Days 123, 124 and 125 of 1,461 (or 2,922)

The news keeps coming and coming, but Five Dozen Liquor Jugs is here to help you make snarky sense of it.

  • The most remarkable thing I’ve read lately is New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s speech on the removal of the monuments to treason. Read the whole thing.
  • Please do not assault reporters, Republican candidates for office.
  • Trumpcare sucks even more than it originally sucked, and it already sucked a whole lot.
  • Donald Trump did what Nixon did on the missing 18 minutes of tape. He absolutely deserves impeachment.
  • Is it too much to ask that he find a non-dictator to casually spill our secrets to? Even Netanyahu would be fine, once you’ve repaired that broken relationship.
  • It’s easy to balance the budget when you double-count 2 trillion$ of theoretical growth.
  • Remember how IT policy swung an election when the two candidates couldn’t have been any more different? I remember. (h/t Scott Lemieux)
  • “Have a kick-ass Holocaust!”
  • You know Carl Icahn? Carl Icahn was a bad human being, and now he is an even worse, corrupt human being.
  • The Supreme Court (including Clarence Thomas) did the right thing. We should try to get an anti-gerrymandering amendment into the Constitution when we get back in power.
  • Democrats are starting to win those special elections. The flood is coming.
  • Some jerk blew up an Ariana Grande concert. Rest in peace to all the victims who were unjustly killed.
  • “It’s a gold and honey trap, I’ve got for you toniiiiiiiiiight, Anthony Weiner!”
  • Richard Collins III was lynched by a white supremacist (h/t ShakeZula). Remember that the next time Black Lives Matter blocks traffic, or a football player kneels during the anthem.
  • I feel like being found innocent of a crime means that you don’t go to jail.
  • The first charter school strike is happening. Exciting times!
  • We are unfortunate in that our most accessible example of universal healthcare is Canadian single-payer, which might be the worst single-payer system. If only we were next to Australia.
  • China is the most insecure country on the planet.
  • How many German men changed their underwear daily in the ’60s? The answer might surprise you! Laundromats hate this! (The answer is five percent.)
  • Vince Gilligan needs to do a new show about nut theft.
