Yo La Tengo does John Cale. What's not to like?
• Not yet feeling the holiday weekend zest? Then figuratively haul your sorry ass to The Sherman Oaks Review of Books which has plenty of fresh-enough content including a bagatelle by me and other yukworthy objects including "John Fogerty Doesn’t Understand This Thing Called Rain" and others. If that doesn't work, there's always liquor.
• Just the other day Jonah Goldberg was telling us how he'd never vote for Trump but Hillary was worse than Trump but he would never vote for Trump, wink fart. This appears to be his #NeverTrump modified limited hangout route for the election cycle. Today Goldberg offers another example:
From the earliest days of this [email] scandal — and it is a scandal — Clinton has lied. Unlike Donald Trump’s lies, which he usually vomits up spontaneously like a vesuvian geyser, Clinton’s were carefully prepared, typed up, and repeated for all the world to hear over and over again.
I would think this is an important distinction.Really? Why? (Besides this is how you ever got a job in the first place.)
Neither of the candidates is worthy of the office in my eyes, but voters might discount many of Trump’s deceits as symptoms of his glandular personality. Much like Vice President Joe Biden, who always gets a pass for launching errant fake-fact missiles from the offline silo that is his mouth, Trump is often seen as entertainingly spontaneous.At least it'll be fun boy Hillary whattabitch huh fart.
Meanwhile, Clinton — who lives many time zones away from the word “entertaining” — is marketing herself as the mature and upstanding grown-up. She does nothing spontaneously. And that means all of her lies are premeditated.
