At the greatest college in the world, Professor Timothy Burke explains why Donald Trump gets support even though he is a mediocre player at a fixed game who doesn’t bother to remember which lies he’s told, running an operation so inept that it allowed his wife to stand up before a national audience and deliver a speech that was transparently plagiarized from the one given by Michele Obama four years ago.

The word was that Donald Trump, who hoped his pal Tom Brady would speak for him at the Cleveland Circus, was going to settle for Tim Tebow.* Now it appears that Tebow got up and slowly walked away.

*ETA: Comparison for the football-challenged: “We couldn’t actually get filet mignon. Have a dog biscuit.”

Let me see if I’ve got this Brexit thing right:

1. The majority does a Votey McVoteface.

2. The Tories go into decapitated chicken mode because they were unprepared for the success of what they were advocating.

3. Labour says, “Everybody else is being stupid; we gotta catch up,” and tries to fire their competent leader.

R. A. MacAvoy on poetry and song:
I don’t think that, prior to the wide use of the printing press, there was any distinction between poetry and song. It was only when a person could buy an edition of someone’s poems, and read them – not knowing at all how the writer had meant them to sound aloud – that a branch of poetry that consisted of interesting mind pictures could exist.
Thanx to File 770
