Hundred Monkeys My @ss!

Since this came up in a thread and I've read this and another similar article recently calling bs on it And more than one poster asked, I figured I'd do a brief post, show an excerpt and link the damn thing. While the article I'm linking is from 1985, I haven't found the other, more recent one, although the more recent one Quotes this one. Still with me? Yeah, me neither.

2020 Dem Primary Moves: Clinton Backtracks and Leaves Door Open, Biden Looks Like He's Running, Bloomberg's Out

Interesting developments over the past 24 hours regarding who's in, who's out, and who's waffling on whether or not they'll jump into the 2020 Democratic presidential primary fray.

As we oh-so-slowly wake up to the reality of climate murder-suicide

I've no doubt written a few diaries on climate change, and they probably weren't my most popular diaries -- but this ought to be a bit of fun. The day before yesterday there appeared a piece "the big problem with climate 'realism,'" with a fun picture of Nancy Pelosi on the front. This is from "The Week." At any rate, the piece argues:

Iowans Awake! (Caucus Info)

If anyone is here from the state of Iowa, please see the following page--especially if you are an interested caucus-goer.

OPCW Final Report on Douma Chemical Attack

Media organization coverage of the report varies, of course.

‘Chlorine ‘likely’ used in alleged Douma chemical attack, no nerve agent – OPCW‘s final report’,, March 1, 2019

“The chemical arms watchdog refrained from identifying the party responsible for the incident, despite earlier being granted such powers.

Neoliberal Clintonites working hard to undermine the Democratic front-runner

It's been said before that establishment Democrats would rather lose to a Republican than win with a leftist, but now we have proof. That proof comes in the form of smears by center-right, Clinton loyalists who are working overtime to undermine the obvious Democratic front-runner, Bernie Sanders.

I think this article in the New Yorker is worth your attention

The Making of the Fox News White House

Can't excerpt, it's too long and I am only one third through reading it. But I thought you might be better equipped than me to 'essay it'. It's worth it to do so, right?
