Good morning, fellow digital tasteleaders.
So when do we migrate to a cooler, edgier platform?
My dash is filled with Brents. It’s weird.
Should you want a (non-Googa) burger tomorrow afternoon, I’m grilling them in the backyard of Sycamore in Ditmas Park.
Voices of the down-trodden.
“In America, the government is supposed to protect freedom, not use its intolerance for certain viewpoints to intimidate citizens into acting contrary to their faith convictions,” said Alliance Senior Legal Counsel Dale Schowengerdt. “Family business owners are constitutionally guaranteed the freedom to live and work according to their beliefs. It is this very freedom that gives America its cherished diversity and protects citizens from state-mandated conformity.”
Scratch that. Actually, voices of florists counter-suing the State of Washington to protect the right of the florist to not sell flowers to same-sex couples.
So after reading this look into the relationship between BuzzFeed and Charles Koch, it’s kind of hard to swallow the, “Hello, Buzzfeed? Charles Who? Oh, whatever, as long as you got the cash!” hypothesis. More like, “How could it be a conflict if I don’t feel conflicted?”
Mr. Obama also expresses exasperation. In private, he has talked longingly of “going Bulworth,” a reference to a little-remembered 1998 Warren Beatty movie about a senator who risked it all to say what he really thought. —
GO BULWORTH ALREADY.
Not Hot Enough for Breitbart -
Boy genius Ben Shapiro takes to Breitbart.com to complain that Maxim’s list of hot women includes two women that he doesn’t think are very hot. One of them — Hoda Kotb — is old, for crying out loud! The only reason women like Kotb would find herself on the list is that she’s a liberal and, of course, Maxim is well-known for only celebrating the hotness of liberals; it’s one of the pillars of the liberal conspiracy to take over America.
But Shapiro will have none of it. Making lists of hot women is something he obviously takes very seriously and he will not bow to the ghastly liberal agenda. After all, he’s the author of Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans so you can be sure he’s going to speak his mind about which women are hot and which women aren’t. Once Kotb and Kamala Harris hear that the boy genius thinks they’re not hot enough for Maxim’s list, you can be sure they’ll feel pretty badly about themselves. Luckily, and thanks to Maxim, millions of other men will continue to objectify them so I’m sure they’ll be just fine.
If you are bold enough to click over to Breitbart for this gen of an “article,” do yourself a favor and don’t look at the comments; they’re everything you expect and worse.

The best that Shapiro can aspire to be is “dick.”
In a surprise action this morning, with cops guarding, a developer puts up a fence around half of a Lower East Side community garden that’s been in negotiations. I’ve lived next to this for 17 years. Gotta say, feels like Berlin in 1961 or Israel in here.
That’s terrible. Bloomberg New York is worse than Giuliani New York in so many ways.
