I was too chicken to fight back whenever I was bullied as a kid (and still am as an adult, to be totally honest), but I wanted to, despite my weak limbs. So it brings me no small amount of joy to see that Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are finally going all...

Just twice have I looked at anything involving the FBI and thought, “Well, that’s pretty good.” The first time, I was in the 5th grade, and I was looking at the X Files. The second was the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

In junior high, I was all set to compete in a talent show with my three best friends. We were to do a dance routine to a song called 123456 Bass. Yet just before the show, the group asked me to design the costumes instead, and I learned that for weeks, they had...

The Failures of Pop Feminism

The Failures of Pop Feminism

Senator Amy Klobuchar, a woman known for being quite abusive to her staff as well as her often misguided attempts at humor, has struggled, since she launched her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, to break out of the very large pack of candidates. Her lackluster performance to date is largely based on her lack of broad name recognition, unlike Joe Biden, and her milquetoast...

Please, No More Photos of Pete Buttigieg Eating

During presidential campaign season all the habits and behaviors of candidates are understandably put under a microscope. And one of the ever-present elements of the campaign trail is food: What the candidates eat at events , how they like to eat, even their go-to comfort foods are all up for comment. (Who could forget the collective gasp of horror that came from the entire city of New York...

So What If Elizabeth Warren Is Angry?

So What If Elizabeth Warren Is Angry?

“Is Elizabeth Warren ‘angry’ and antagonistic? Or are rivals dabbling in gendered criticism?” asks a recent Washington Post headline. It’s a question we should already know the answer to, given Warren’s Senate campaign in 2012, where her Republican opponent attempted to paint her as too stern and out of touch; or the dynamics of the 2016 presidential campaign; or the treatment of Alexandria...

A Brief History of Pete Buttigieg Faking It on Medicare for All

A Brief History of Pete Buttigieg Faking It on Medicare for All

Pete Buttigieg sucks, for all the reasons I laid out in detail here —from his technocratic worldview to his penchant to describe his milquetoast policy plans as a sort of pragmatic progressivism. But a new reason to add to the list? His newly discovered contempt for Medicare for All, which he deployed—some might argue cynically and opportunistically!—as his main line of attack against...
