I never noticed the PCI flag in The Godfather before! PCI is the Partito Comunista Italiano (The Communist Party of Italy). A majority of the partisans who fought against Mussolini were communists and the PCI would have won the election in 1948 if not for serious CIA meddling.

The best needledrop in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is the use of California Dreamin' as everyone's heading home after a long day. Beautiful stuff.

Hahahaha I mean fuck Diane Feinstein but this straight up ageist shit from Liz Warren wtf.
During yesterday's vote-a-rama I overheard @ewarren telling @SenFeinstein: 鈥淧uppies have a nap, now it鈥檚 time for you to have one鈥 bit.ly/3BNawEt

There's no reason to casually say something so cruel to a colleague. I know Bernie gets dunked on for his hiring choices but Warren isn't shit on nearly enough for her horrible political instincts.

My understanding is that Illhan doesn't want to call herself a socialist because she already has too many labels--Muslim, Somali-American, etc.
Replying to @AntiNateSilver
what's the relationship between Ilhan and DSA, though? why isn't it a closer, more official one?

Ilhan Omar will get a credible primary challenger until she resigns or loses so she can't keep hiring people like this. Isi sounds like a decent dude but if Bernie 2020 taught us anything, it's that leftwing candidates shouldn't hire terminally-online, Twitter-brained people.

Looks like Ilhan might survive the primary tonight but it was way too close wtf. She needs to run a better campaign next time.
Replying to @danielmarans
Omar clearly thinks that her enemies are underestimating her once again. With a base of young voters, she has decided not to advertise on TV during the primary.

The concept of a totally in vogue, hip, chic...check notes...religion that's 2000 years old is so funny to me. Like gtfoh with that "Catholicism is cool again" bullshit. I take my Catholics moody and riddled with guilt!

I've come around on the Tom Hanks' performance in Elvis. He's great at playing The Devil.
My favorite thing about Elvis is that there's no hedging: If you're not on board from its opening minutes, then you'll be left in the dust. Good movie.
