Silent but deadly

I love this picture, which probably is not accurately depicted by the caption. Probably.

I nicked it off this National Review article. He says Oprah started her long decline after choosing to endorse Obama over Hillary, shocking her (mostly white, mostly female) fans by choosing the black thing over the girl thing. Hilarious if true.

Identity politics is hard.

Early in our relationship, Uncle B treated me to a lecture on The Problem With Americans: we sit around watching opera all day and take our marching orders from opera and only think what opera tells us to.

And I was, like, “that’s just so weird and wrong and unfair. I mean, my dad quite likes Verdi, but he’s the only American I know who’s really into opera.”

I have, of course, stepped on my own punchline here: he meant Oprah, he just can’t talk right. He’s English.

Which is really weird because, here again, my dad is the only American I know who’s really into Oprah.
