The Middle East really brings out the worst in us. The Chicago Dyke March refused to let people march under the traditional symbol of Judaism because it has Zio* cooties, and now Congress (including some people who should know better) is trying to take First Amendment rights away from Israel boycotters.
*If you hate something enough, you don’t have to say the whole word: Zio, Antifa

Thanx to Charles P. Pierce.

The confusion remains:

Many of us have rich fantasy lives, dreams that if only things were different, we could be movie stars or business giants or whatever. One survival trait is to realize when those fantasies are unrealistic, because few things are more embarrassing than getting the opportunity and showing the world that you never could have done what you proudly proclaimed. Case in point: The Republicans kept saying that if only they were in charge, wondrous things would happen. Now they have control of all three branches of the government, but they cannot realize their plans because their plans make no sense.
