Texas School Censors All Of ‘Huck Finn’ Except The N-Words

This is barely satire.

Paul Gosar of Arizona, a far-right MAGA Republican and conspiracy theorist who has never been shy about making inflammatory remarks, has been drawing vehement criticism from Democrats for posting a cartoon that depicts him murdering Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York City and inflicting....

The Unbearable Narcissism of Andrew Cuomo

No, Andrew Cuomo, being a father does not absolve you of misogyny, nor of narcissism. Joan Walsh hits the nail on the heat at The Nation Magazine.
