Trump speech: an underwhelming address by a president without a plan
“When Republicans controlled Congress, Democrats offered Trump a deal: the wall for legalizing the young undocumented immigrants known as DREAMers. ‘I’ll take a bucket, take bricks, and I’ll start building it myself,’ said Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL). ‘We will dirty our hands in order for the DREAMers to have a clean future in America. Then why haven’t we settled this?’ They didn’t settle it because Trump refused the deal.… His sense of negotiations is fundamentally zero-sum: One side has to lose and one side has to win. If Trump gives Democrats anything they can present as a win, he will look like a loser. As such, he can’t give them the concessions that might get him the wall because what he’d be giving up — his image as a winner — is more important to him than the policy he’d be gaining. If all this sounds ridiculous, well, it is.”

Right Wing Nerds vs. the New Common Sense
We’re in strange times when the center right is home to intellectually freewheeling nerds just as the left is getting fed up with navel-gazing and hell-bent on epistemic closure.

Rhapsody in Brashness - willowbilly - Killing Eve (TV 2018) [Archive of Our Own]
“We understand,” says Hannibal. The vibrations of his voice rumble against her the way that thunder does through storm clouds. “You are unique, as I am. And she insinuated herself into you, as Will insinuated himself into me. The blind, pearly rootlets of human connection have burrowed themselves too deeply into the fertile soil of your soul to be killed, now, no matter how many times you hack away at the verdant growth which springs anew into the air, again and again. The intricate underground web of them merely spreads implacably further and deeper and will continue to do so until they smother you, or until you allow the leaves to fully unfurl into the light.”

“But she stabbed me,” Villanelle exclaims petulantly.
