I wrote a Critic's Notebook about Justice Breyer's odd book, "The Authority of the Court and the Peril of Politics," which was published a mere 9 months ago and reads now — in the wake of Dobbs, Bruen, etc. — like he brought a PowerPoint to a knife fight. nytimes.com/2022/06/29/books…

Like Michael Kinsley said: a “gaffe” in Washington politics is when someone accidentally tells the truth
Former President George W. Bush: “The decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq. I mean of Ukraine.”

I wrote about J.D. Vance, the Trump endorsee who campaigned with Greene and Gaetz ... and who ascended through publishing, mainstream media and Hollywood. Featuring @roddreher @frankrichny @KathrynBrownell and newly laureated novelist Joshua Cohen nytimes.com/2022/05/15/arts/…

So @SteveSchmidtSES has inspired me to read Meghan McCain's Dirty Sexy Politics, her "memoir" of her time on her dad John McCain's (did you know he's her father?) 08 campaign. The NJ Star Ledger called it "the completely unedited ramblings of an idiot."

The @nytimes Koch piece omits how he collaborated with the paper's homophobic editor, Abe Rosenthal, to minimize the AIDS epidemic. My 1985 review of Larry Kramer's "Normal Heart" (with no warning to me) carried an unprecedented postscript trying to discredit Kramer's indictment.
Today @nytimes published a deeply reported story exploring the dual lives of Ed Koch, one of the most popular mayors in New York history and also a closeted gay man.

THREAD/ Like all radical ideologues, the right wing has finally run amok and is coming to devour the hand that feeds it. Business. For my part I am delighted. It is the business world that has been, either by act or omission, feeding the opportunist right wing to distract 1/

Pull to conform to what is happening around you is a powerful tide. Applause for assault in a tuxedo in California is the same as applause for assault while wearing a red hat in Alabama. That was a crime. There was no virtue attached to it. None whatsoever.

I’m tripping that you can assault someone on live television on stage at the Oscars and just take your seat and watch the rest of the show.
