Michael Tracey Just Ripped The Political Establishment A New Asshole
Caitlin Johnstone

It just isn’t fair that the tag line ‘World’s Greatest Exaggerations’ has already been claimed, Caitlin, because your hyperbole really stands out even in the paranoid clamor of the internet.

What you label as ‘ripping a new asshole’ looks to me more like a pretty obvious failure to distinguish between undesirable options — which is what a dilemma actually is, after all. What’s the pious, noble choice available to the US w/r/t Assad? Oh yeah, there isn’t one.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
