Ben Hill and the New South

  As a boy growing up in Douglas County, Georgia, I did not realize that Ben Hill Road, which ran by our family’s house, was named for a historic figure. Benjamin Harvey Hill was a brilliant statesman, hailed as a “peerless orator,” who was so widely admired in Georgia that, although he had eloquently spoken […]

Rule 5 Sunday: I Like ‘Em Dumb And Busty

— compiled by Wombat-socho This week we were treated to the edifying spectacle of supermodel Emily Ratajkowski punishing old white men for passing Alabama’s anti-abortion law by removing all her clothes and tweeting about it.

Stupid Is as Stupid Does

  It’s possible for me to go many months at a time without remembering that Charles Johnson still exists.
