Maybe the congresswomen haven’t heard, but that battle is over.
Many women actually voted in the recent election, some even for these female office-holders.
Now that Donald Trump has maligned Senator John Mc Cain as a phony war hero who got himself captured in Vietnam, below you’ll find a reminder--which TSG published the last time the Republican claimed to be running for president--how Trump avoided military service.
The son of a wealthy real estate developer, Trump received four student deferments that were followed by a 1968 medical deferment that came a few months after he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
In 1954, Nikita Khrushchev turned the administrative duties over to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, which was then also a province of the greater USSR, i.e. Through the entire modern era, Crimea has been the site of the USSR’s, and now Russia’s, only warm-water naval bases.
Ask the average American college student why that is, and you will surely receive a blank stare.
Speaking of comportment and messaging, what was with those Democratic congresswomen all gotten up in white costumes?
For instance, the imputed Russian “annexation of Crimea,” as if the place was some kind of nostalgic, sore-beset Ruritania of independent princes, colorful peasants, and earnest postal clerks cruelly enslaved by bloodthirsty Cossacks.In the news business now, as in the national life generally, anything goes and nothing matters.One has to wonder, though, about the editors who serve up this baloney.One of my coworkers has a white shirt that is sheer enough that her bra can clearly be seen through it. (If you think it makes a difference, I am also female.) Don’t bring it up.I’m not sure if I should say something to her – she’s worn the shirt often enough now that I’m not sure how she can be oblivious to this (wouldn’t she notice when looking in the mirror? I’m not offended or anything, but it seems like an odd clothing choice to make, so I’m worried that this is somehow unintentional. It’s one thing to discreetly point out to someone something that they’d obviously want to fix — an unzipped fly, a skirt tucked into their tights, etc.
