Did I wake up in Texas?

There is a new blog post entitled, “The contradiction of class.”


Pennsylvania

Can’t make this shit up (figure 1).

Fig. 1. Screenshot from a report of Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate, yes, a Republican, who had a collision with a motorcyclist but can’t quite be said to have left the scene of the accident even as he kept driving.[4]

The motorcycle “became lodged onto the front hood and undercarriage” of Gerow’s car in an upright position, and Gerow continued driving westbound for about 5 miles before being pulled over by a state trooper, the report said.[5]

I guess maybe I wouldn’t even hear about this in Texas.

Coup attempt

The path to Donald Trump may well lie through Rudy Giuliani.[6]
