Lost in the shuffle: Sinema's price for joining was allowing the carried interest tax break to live another day taibbi.substack.com/p/america-this… twitter.com/bgmasters/stat…
You have to be thick as cement to not see the appeal of "Taken" or "Commando" or any of a thousand other “There’s no limit to how much killing I’d do to save my family!” movies. taibbi.substack.com/p/in-defense-o…
Liam Neeson’s second act is up there with Leslie Nielsen’s as maybe the most direct hit in discovering untapped camp potential so late into a distinguished career. taibbi.substack.com/p/in-defense-o…

My six-year-old today: “Daddy was on with the pink lady, who disagrees.” @Lis_Smith
You mean he never adapted to new wisdom like USA Today writing, "Scientists haven’t yet figured out how to solve obesity”? twitter.com/AmieeConn/stat…
It’s very possible, and predictions are getting harder all the time anyway — I’m just saying that when pundits try to elevate a non-Trump candidate as a more “plausible” or “sensible” alternative, that’s tended to work against those candidates. twitter.com/kentucker/stat…
Kudos to CBS for doing a story on military contracting malfeasance. twitter.com/cbsnews/status…

A new strategy imported from the Department of Labor saw California agencies approach regulation like high-end plaintiffs' lawyers, blasting target companies like Activision and Tesla with negative press at the outset of investigations: taibbi.substack.com/p/the-lawyers-…
A spokesperson for California Governor Gavin Newsom brushed off departures of Oracle, Tesla, and firms like Hewlett-Packard as a temporary exodus, insisting, "We’ll continue creating more jobs than any other state.” @mtaibbi taibbi.substack.com/p/the-lawyers-…
In Part II of "The Lawyers Who Ate California," the Activision case ramps up, while state regulators try to prevent other companies from talking to federal investigators: taibbi.substack.com/p/the-lawyers-…

A mainstream press that forgives its own mistakes but cheers bans for others, needs to realize it’s achieving negative influence in the process - which means its criticism of certain pols will be received by many as endorsements: taibbi.substack.com/p/the-press-is…

If pundits really wanted Ron DeSantis to unseat Trump, they wouldn't describe him as a Kasich-like "plausible nominee," but as a fascist menace who itches to slit the throat of "democracy itself" and ravage its corpse. taibbi.substack.com/p/the-press-is…
Establishment press approval has been a net negative for presidential candidates since 2015, and only pundits don't see it: taibbi.substack.com/p/the-press-is…

Arms deal with Saudis/UAE? Missing copper in China? What’s your vote for the weirdest/most overlooked story this week?
36 years after the first “Top Gun,” we’re on the brink of what feels like civil collapse, as of this week flirting with war with two different superpowers, and nearly a decade into a crippling fun shortage. The cure: taibbi.substack.com/p/how-crazy-as…
The plot is so vague and trite and so nakedly an ad for military hardware that it’s impossible to be mad at. It’s just fun. How many things in the last seven or eight years have just been fun?taibbi.substack.com/p/how-crazy-as…
Of all the negative by-products of Trump’s election, one of the most subtly destructive was alienating America from the one thing we’ve consistently done well, the lowest common denominator: taibbi.substack.com/p/how-crazy-as…
This country sucks at highbrow, we’re great at stupid, and since there’s nothing more stupid than stupid highbrow, we’ve spent the last half-decade exporting the most embarrassing conceivable content: taibbi.substack.com/p/how-crazy-as…

Didn’t Herschel Walker get tackled from behind by Adam Vinatieri once? What’s the geopolitical equivalent of that? twitter.com/mtracey/status…
What are the most grating Twitter cliches? I assume beginning a tweet with “Expert in the field here…” is up there, but curious to hear other answers. twitter.com/PlumAndApple/s…
I wrote two books about police brutality and spent five years on the topic. If at the end of that saying “I met a few cops once who weren’t complete assholes” is “doing a softy” or “bootlicking,” you’ve all gone mad. twitter.com/panlarios/stat…
During the protests I was asked about cops and said I’d met many. Some were thugs. Some, ordinary men and women who needed jobs. A few joined because they’d been hassled as kids and wanted to make change. I guess “bootlicking” is forgetting to generalize about a varied group.
So cops are white collar now? Fascinating twitter.com/cancelmybutt/s…
