I know, but @ChickieD made a pretty good argument for reading it over here, so I went and took a look and the first headline was
Ann Coulter: Let’s Make Russia Our Sister Country!
and I don't know if I can do this by myself. Maybe we could have a thread for all the latest alt-facts from alt-reality? Maybe it could attract trolls, or maybe it could help contain them. Maybe it should just die? Thoughts?
Anyway I'll go first. Fuck Ann Coulter, what else is there
Rand Paul: Let’s ‘Smash’ Paul Ryan’s Obamacare Lite ‘to Smithereens’
Oddly, this is more reassuring to me than anything else I've seen that the health bill as written is DOA. I wonder what they'll replace it with.
I see they're bitter about Geert Wilders losing the Dutch election. Trying to put a "positive" spin on things:
The win may be a pyrrhic victory for Rutte whose party is projected to lose ten seats in parliament and whose former coalition partner, the Labour party has totally collapsed.
Hate-fuelled nationalism isn't stupid, you're stupid.
Donald Trump: ‘Failing’ Snoop Dogg Would be in Jail if he Shot Obama in Rap Video
Nothing you can't get on twitter I guess.

Oh heavens, someone fetch the smelling salts.
Chris Evans on Trump Presidency: ‘I Feel Rage. I Feel Fury’
“It’s unbelievable. People were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame,” he added. “They were just so happy to hear that someone was angry. Hear someone say that Washington sucks. They just want something new without actually understanding. I mean, guys like Steve Bannon—Steve Bannon!—this man has no place in politics.”
Evans — who supported Democrat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign — has been an outspoken critic of Trump on social media.
Is this the Two Minutes Hate? First comment:
In my own city there's a well known middle aged retarded fellow who walks the streets dressed as superman while picking imaginary fights with the lamp posts, trees, and such.. Shockingly, I know of no one who has ever solicited his views on politics or world affairs..
Yup. 2833 comments and counting. The article is only about six hours old. How does anyone take in all that noise? I guess you don't, you just howl into the void.
California School Bans Tag, Says Game ‘Too Rough’
Texas School Bans Sunscreen Because a Child Might Drink It
College Removes Scales from Gym to Avoid ‘Triggering’ Overweight Students
One of those headlines is from boing boing, did you notice? I'm not having a go at bb, honestly if you look at the list of bb articles about schools the difference in headlines is pretty instructive. I just thought it would be a fun game because I don't know what else to say about this junk.
Any brave souls want to try to unpack it all?
