Jun 23 Jude Fawley commented on Queer Issue: How Season Two of Transparent Seduces Viewers into Learning Gay History.
Transparent (especially season 2) left an impression on me in a way that no other TV show I can recall has. I loved the way it dealt with the history.

Even though I think the Ali/Syd relationship was kind of forced and heavy-handed; and I didn't really get where they were going with Ali's relationship with the Lesbian professor (can't recall her name)... The Berlin angle was so well done (along with the story Josh and his son) that I still really loved the whole season.
Jun 10 Jude Fawley commented on ICYMI: Sen. Elizabeth Warren Endorses Hillary Clinton.
Boy, I was for Bernie from day one of the campaign, but even I'm getting tired and embarrassed of the deliberate obtuseness of Bernie supporters online. Obviously, Warren was endorsing Clinton over Trump, not Clinton over Bernie. Do you really think that is a betrayal?

@1-3, yes, I'm talking to all three of you: You should all just look at yourselves for a minute and take some stock of what brought you to this point, and maybe just cut it out.
Jun 8 Jude Fawley commented on Ijeoma Oluo on "Trickle-Down Progressivism".
For the record, when I said "the discourse is broken" @43, I was referring to the comment thread (and the internet in general) not to Oluo or anyone out in the real world.

"I could see farmers markets there..." - O'Toole sounds out of touch. I'm really going to take my kids for a Sunday stroll to buy asparagus at a market located at department under investigation for excessive use of force, with guns laying around all over the place and officers on steroids fresh from the firing range. I might as well send my kids to Catholic summer camp. I appreciate having a police force for real emergencies, but at all other times, my feeling is that kids and police don't mix. And I'm white.

Welcome to the 21st Century, when the discourse is broken, and everything is clickbait.
Jun 7 Jude Fawley commented on Hillary Clinton Wins Big In New Jersey and New Mexico, Is Now Officially Presumptive Democratic Nominee.
I was strongly pro Bernie, and I'm not enthusiastic about Hillary. but I'll vote for her against Trump, and it'll be awesome to see a woman in the White House. I hope she surprises me (pleasantly) once she's in office, and I prey she doesn't go on any foreign escapades.
Jun 6 Jude Fawley commented on Hillary Clinton Has Already Won the Democratic Nomination.
Let's just all chill out and wait to see what happens after tomorrow. It's going to be OK.
Jun 4 Jude Fawley commented on Muhammad Ali.
With every one of these deaths, the 20th century feels further and further away.
May 26 Jude Fawley commented on Regarding Hillary's Private Email Server: So What?.
@13, You might as well ask why Bill had an affair with an aid when he had so much to lose. Hillary either had a huge lapse of judgement, or didn't think the rules should apply to her, or some combination of the two. Neither qualities make me particularly excited to have her as president.
