"...'tis a consummation devoutly to be wish'd".

Yep. She plagiarized a particularly moronic one the other day...

...the "eat the bugs" meme, a favorite of 4Chan incels. It's the one that goes "Eat the bugs, live in a pod...".

It's almost not worth even discussing except that it shows where MTG spends all her time--and recall that she can waste all that time because she has no real job (she was stripped of all committee assignments because of her anti-Semitism). So instead, she logs on to the sickest corners of the internet, and the best she can do is plagiarize Pepe memes from a decade ago.

By the way--nice job, Georgia voters.

There is a well-known saying attributed to James Carville...

...between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, you've got Alabama. A lot of states are like that.

Don't forget the execrable Raymond Arroyo, "news" director for radtrad network EWTN.

He subs for Ingraham and is also a frequent guest on her shows (both radio and TV). She might occasionally have even worse guests and subs, but his constant smugness is really infuriating. And he is on her shows all the time.

Unfortunately, like many states, WI has a lot of chud areas...

...western WI in particular. You can drive through and see miles of farm fields with crappy hand-painted signs festooned with thought-terminating clichés that date to the Bircher era. A lot of the upper Midwest is like that. Even ultra-blue states like MN have some real chud country. Michelle Bachmann had an unbelievably gerrymandered district that had this dog-leg appendage which looked like it skipped from side to side of a street, house by house. And an unfortunate number of these people vote.

What a fucking pig.

This is the end result of more than forty years of "co-belligerency" between radtrad Catholics...

...and America's nominally Protestant ruling class. Over the years, the radtrads have worn down the resistance of the Protestant churches to truly radical, extreme ideology, like a total legal ban on contraception. This was easiest with the fundamentalist nondenominational Protestants as well as the Southern Baptists, whose ideas were never that far from radtradism to start with. So in recent years you have seen Albert Mohler, one of the major leaders of the Southern Baptists, attacking the "contraceptive mentality"; that expression is a favorite thought-terminating cliché among radtrad Catholics.

There are quite a few heirloom (non-GMO) purple tomatoes already...

...but as is mentioned in the article, they don't have the high anthocyanin levels that the GMO tomatoes do. The heirloom purple tomatoes often go by names like "Black Tula" and "Black Krim" because they often appear almost black when ripe (but they are really a dark purple). The names refer to their Russian and Eastern European heritage. There are some American heirloom purple tomatoes as well; the Cherokee Purple is probably the most famous.

I've never tasted a Cherokee, but I can say that the Russian tomatoes (which are also grown here) are really tasty. They have an unusual salty bite that makes them great for BLTs and Caprese salad.

If the three-letter agencies and their forensics teams get a hold of your device(s)...

...and you're not a professional (state-sponsored) spy, you're probably fucked. Real spies have a lot of bespoke technology that isn't easily hacked, and they're trained in evading forensics should they be searched.

PillowMan doesn't strike me as terribly bright, especially after his admitted years of drug abuse. I'm surprised he got as far as he did with his moronic pillow business. He doesn't even seem capable of running a coffee shop.

Incel logic. Or should I say "logic". Vance is mainstreaming...

...MRA/PUA "thinking": the kind of shit we used to see from Roosh V before he ODed on shrooms and fell into religious psychosis (oh, sorry, I forgot; he still hates women--religion is just his latest excuse for why he does). The alt-right/MRA/PUA morons have an infinite number of memes about "frigid cat ladies", etc.

This mainstreaming is now commonplace with alt-right-adjacent politicians like Vance, Boebert, MTG et al. For example, MTG just plagiarized the "eat the bugs" meme the other night. That one is least a few years old and was very popular with alt-right and radtrad subcultures: idiots who whine all day about "degeneracy". The "cat lady" meme has to be from a decade ago.
