Well, I'm Back

I really tried not to look at the political news for the past week and a half, and I was mostly successful, and it was pretty great. A few things managed to penetrate my ridigly defended Sphere of Avoidance, virtually all of which were terrible (with one notable exception!), and of course I've returned to see feminist comedian Michelle Wolf being viciously attacked for mocking White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' appearance, which she did not even do.

Not only did the press fail utterly to get lathered in defense of Michelle Obama when the stakes were far higher, but let's be honest that a male comedian would never be criticized the way Wolf has, especially for the reasons she's being criticized.

It's really just perfect that Wolf is being vilified in profoundly misogynist ways, while being accused of engaging in misogyny when she didn't.

Welcome the fuck home to me. And off we go.
