What the Media Get Wrong About the Goldwater Rule

Whenever I read an article about someone diagnosing a person from afar, inevitably the journalist will mention the “Goldwater rule.” This is an ethical guideline created by the American Psychiatric Association in 1973 in reaction to a claim that arose from a magazine article that surveyed psychiatrists about presidential candidate Barry Goldwater’s mental health. Journalists roll this “rule” out to try and explain why mental health professionals shouldn’t make statements about celebrities and po...

Kim Kardashian Stuns the World by Announcing She’s Studying to Become a Lawyer & Plans on Taking the Bar Exam in 2022

Since I feel like I’ve been living a bizarre twilight zone since November 2016, let me go ahead and paint this future for you:America somehow survives two terms of a Trump presidency. (And yes, we’re all still free!) It’s 2025 and Kanye West has just been inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States. Kim Kardashian stands by his side, not only as FLOTUS, but as a Supreme Court justice!This is obviously a hyperbolic hypothetical foretelling of our future, but back to reality, one thing ...

Andrew Sullivan seems to have derived inspiration from the "Goofus and Gallant" children's comic strip.

From "Is Pete Buttigieg a Transformational Candidate?":Trump is a pathological, malevolent narcissist from New York, breaking all sorts of norms. Buttigieg is a modest, reasonable pragmatist, and a near parody of normality. Trump thrives on a retro heterosexual persona; Buttigieg appears to be a rather conservative, married homosexual. Trump is a coward and draft dodger; Buttigieg served his country. Trump does not read; Buttigieg does. Trump’s genius is demonic demagoguery. Buttigieg’s gig is c...

Spies Can’t Look Away From Trump’s Pee Tape
