For John, BLUF: The Stephen Colbert video on the encounter between Reporter Jim Acosta and the White House Intern trying to retrieve the White House microphone. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Althouse Blog, by Professor Ann Althouse, 10 November 2018.
Here is the lede, mostly:
This is an important cultural moment. There is now a comic meme about being physically violent to a woman. Notice how it's upping the violence that makes it funnier and funnier. It ends with a "Road Runner" type image where a bag of "intern feed" is handed to the woman and then a giant weight falls on her. Have we ever seen mainstream comedy like that before? We're laughing at a woman getting crushed to death.I didn't include the last part of the paragraph. While it is spot on, it is a little indelicate. Worth reading the whole thing, and the comments.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit, who sent me to the The Althouse Blog.
