Personally, I think Sawant's been incredibly consistent. She may be radically idealistic, but that is a representation of her constituents - a lot of self-identified socialists and liberals were staunchly against Hillary.

While I think actively campaigning against Clinton once Trump became a real threat was a poor choice, especially in other states where it might actually matter, but let's be clear that it was a political choice. And who, if not Clinton herself, would better understand political compromise? (*fracking* *cough, cough*)

Who should say who should or shouldn't lead anti-Trump protests anyway? Weird stance. Who gives a fuck? Let those who actually show up and motivate people lead them.

If there's a post-election blame-athon, I'd sooner point fingers at the 'democratic' Democratic primary where the popular votes of constituents and personal pleas fell on def ears of our elected officials and ladder climbers wanting to align with the big pantsuit around town and the campaign dollars that promised.

I think we need to work together here, we have bigger problems than bickering about people we mostly agree with.

This article is too long to read. But in short: there's a women-only show at SAM. Then a Cornish show men-only response to said women's only show. I'd say he nailed the brief. Exclusionary / reductive show themes === reductive art. Brilliant actually. Ben is a class A A hole, but that has nothing to do with this art piece ;)
