Trauma sets up new rules for memory ... then she "remembers" being abused ... and jfc, then she went after a victim, crazy shit)

At Biden's first news conference, it wasnt the president who was out of touch

It was a shit press conference and the reporters are why
Reporters hype -- then waste -- Bidens first press conference

Eschaton: We'll Pull Laughter From The Skies A major problem is that most of the people in elite perches in The Discourse are barely affected by policy, and in fact consider their lack of personal stake in the outcome to be a point in their favor, as lack of a personal stake in the outcome gives them the purity of intellect that only such detachment can provide. Objective observers from the mountaintop. Critics reviewing the show. I shouldn't be surprised anymore, but even after All This...
Eschaton: It's All Around Us Trying to to push Biden into participating Trump/Biden WWE match, and then when he didn't bite, pretending he did anyway. Pretending to believe the bullshit Republicans pretend to be concerned about, despite knowing they didn't care about those things a month ago. The treatment of any policy dispute as mere partisan bickering, rather than something with severe consequences. Tiptoeing, at best, around the contempt for democracy Republicans are displaying in statehouses all around the country, even after there was organized massive attempt to assassinate the (former) Vice President and numerous members of Congress just 2.5 months ago in order to end the democratic experiment in this country.
