Merry Weekend Before Christmas Open Thread

Here's a long-distance dedication going out to Julia Ioffe.


Oh, and here's some Russian Collusion for you, from John Sexton.

Sexton made a good point about Julia Ioffe's endless NPC script-whining:

The idea that the dominant culture is intensely, almost religiously focused on a point of view that isn't universally shared is actually a feeling to which many conservative Americans can relate. It's not uncommon to meet people for the first time and have them simply assume you share their left-wing politics on one issue or another. At least Christmas only dominates the world for a month or so. That's not the case with the dominant progressive culture in movies, television, and yes the news media. Turn on the Oscars, or the Emmys, or the MTV awards and you'll discover there's almost no one who shares your viewpoint. Instead, there's hostility toward your views. The pages of the NY Times and Washington Post aren't much better. The Post's right-wing columnist is farther to the left than most left-wing columnists. So the sense of cultural isolation I, and I suspect many others, can understand and sympathize with.

Merry Weekend Before Christmas! (I'm sure this is a real thing.)
