    As of today 1/19/21, Rassmussen (the only firm to still do a daily Presidential approval poll, has Trump at 51% approval. This is compared to 54% for Obama at the end of his first term.

    Not too shabby considering the hostility Trump had to endure from the press, big business, and his own party for four years.

  2. Here’s my own survey of the above poll:

    Credible: 59%
    Somewhat Credible: 37%
    Not Credible: 237% (REDRUM!)
    John Podhoretz Level Credible: -2%

  3. So it turns out Whit Stillman is just another idiot savant.

    Eighty-seven percent of Republicans approve of how Trump is doing his job in a new NBC News poll, but half of all voters say Trump is “definitely worse than most” presidents.

    Excerpt from “Sleazy, Soapy, and Rich”
    by Whit Stillman for The American Spectator, March 1981

    https://www.unz.com/print/AmSpectator-1981mar-00023


    The usual message on “Quincy”—that whatever the social problem or crime, businessmen or reactionary white males are behind it—is not emphasized on its press releases. Traditionally television has made its points through the manipulation of stereotypes. Watching thousands of hours of prime-time shows in preparation for his brilliant 1979 book The View from Sunset Boulevard, the TV writer and former American Spectator Talkies reviewer Ben Stein found that even “the most inane and repetitious television shows’ ’ were filled with clear and “deeply similar” political and social messages.

    Businessmen, the military, small- town residents, the rich, gun owners, fundamentalist Protestants-generally anyone who might vote Republican—were portrayed as ludicrous or evil. Conversely, the poor, teachers, members of ethnic minorities, people from outer space, people like TV writers, were portrayed as good.

    Interviewing the writers and producers responsible for much of the prime time, Stein found that their attitudes “coincide almost exactly with what appears on television.” Most of their attitudes were strange.
     

  11. Ah, Whit Stillman. I brought his name up to an east coast girl about 6 years ago, when we were talking about conservatives and the arts. She burst into laughter and said, “Haha! Whit Stillman! Omigod. I MET that guy! At a bar in New York. He was old and so drunk and at closing time he kept hitting on my friends who were just out of college and we were all just laughing. Ew. That guy is pathetic.”

    She talked about him as though he had absolutely no status. It made me kind of sad. I never told anyone that story because, I guess, why would I? But his tweet inspired me to share it with the world.

    The poll I saw yesterday--don't remember which--had Biden polling one point ahead of Trump, which sounds about right.

    Media is always distorting these polling stories. In 2009, media went on-and-on with over-the-top adulation for Obama, but he polled nearly last (at their inauguration) among all presidents elected since WW II.

    (I won't even mention the distortions inflicted by the pollsters.)

    The clip on top was from August 10, 1973. The Rangers ended up losing 8-1.

    In the bottom clip when Alex Johnson refers to the Designated Pinch Hitter he means the DH, as this was the first year of the new rule. Despite his unhappiness he ended up starting 116 games at DH and only 40 games in LF. The Whitey he is referring to is Whitey Herzog, who ended up getting fired in September for Billy Martin.

    Coincidentally, Walt Williams and Alex Johnson ended up as teammates with the Yankees in 74 and 75.

    With the sweet exception of Last Days of Disco, all Stillman's feature films lurch illogically in their second acts and become nonsensical by the third. What in heaven's name is the thematic import, for example, of the protracted crisis at the end of Barcelona where the bride inexplicably holds up the groom all afternoon? What are we to infer about the couple's future happiness, regardless of the halcyon epilogue? Stillman has listed Miracle at Morgan's Creek as one of his top ten favorite movies, which perhaps betrays a bit of a cuck fetish (as see also the 'happy ending' he devised for Love & Friendship's Lady Susan).

    And Rohmer's innumerable beauties are almost uniformly top-notch. Whereas Stillman's are a mixed bunch at best. More to the point, Rohmer's psychological insights and the intricacy of his dances of seduction are immaculate, while Stillman's are usually preposterously leadfooted.

    With all that said, I don't deny that Stillman pictures have a certain measure of charm. Most of them begin promisingly--but the capers he puts them through have no causal logic. He can write some decent epigrams, and sketch charmingly oddball characters. But then he tosses them into a vacuum of errant whimsy either because he desperately lacks human insight or else he's trying to be subversively PoMo and throw motivation out the window.

    https://www.unz.com/print/AmSpectator-1981mar-00023

    The usual message on “Quincy”—that whatever the social problem or crime, businessmen or reactionary white males are behind it—is not emphasized on its press releases. Traditionally television has made its points through the manipulation of stereotypes. Watching thousands of hours of prime-time shows in preparation for his brilliant 1979 book The View from Sunset Boulevard, the TV writer and former American Spectator Talkies reviewer Ben Stein found that even “the most inane and repetitious television shows’ ’ were filled with clear and “deeply similar” political and social messages.

    Businessmen, the military, small- town residents, the rich, gun owners, fundamentalist Protestants-generally anyone who might vote Republican—were portrayed as ludicrous or evil. Conversely, the poor, teachers, members of ethnic minorities, people from outer space, people like TV writers, were portrayed as good.

    Interviewing the writers and producers responsible for much of the prime time, Stein found that their attitudes “coincide almost exactly with what appears on television.” Most of their attitudes were strange.

    We should have a thread to reminisce over what we thought was the best.

    Crooked Hillary and Lying Ted were his best sound bites.

    The thing where he invited Juanita Broderick et al to sit in his guest box at the debate two days after the pussy grab audio got broadcasted should definitely go down in the anals.

    Yes we were somewhat entertained occasionally but I don't believe this is the criteria by which they carved the guys on mount rushmore.

    “Someone said to me the other day, ‘you’re the most famous person in the world by far.’ I said, ‘no, I’m not’… they said, ‘who’s more famous?’ I said, ‘Jesus Christ’,” Trump recounted, prompting cheers from his crowd of supporters.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-says-only-jesus-christ-more-famous-than-him/ar-BB1a4tcQ

    He was briefly eclipsed by James Comey, but where’s he now? Trump should be less modest. What fraction of the world’s population wouldn’t recognise him by either name or image?

    Replies: @Lucius Somesuch, @Ben tillman

    With the sweet exception of Last Days of Disco, all Stillman’s feature films lurch illogically in their second acts and become nonsensical by the third. What in heaven’s name is the thematic import, for example, of the protracted crisis at the end of Barcelona where the bride inexplicably holds up the groom all afternoon? What are we to infer about the couple’s future happiness, regardless of the halcyon epilogue? Stillman has listed Miracle at Morgan’s Creek as one of his top ten favorite movies, which perhaps betrays a bit of a cuck fetish (as see also the ‘happy ending’ he devised for Love & Friendship‘s Lady Susan).

    And Rohmer’s innumerable beauties are almost uniformly top-notch. Whereas Stillman’s are a mixed bunch at best. More to the point, Rohmer’s psychological insights and the intricacy of his dances of seduction are immaculate, while Stillman’s are usually preposterously leadfooted.

    With all that said, I don’t deny that Stillman pictures have a certain measure of charm. Most of them begin promisingly–but the capers he puts them through have no causal logic. He can write some decent epigrams, and sketch charmingly oddball characters. But then he tosses them into a vacuum of errant whimsy either because he desperately lacks human insight or else he’s trying to be subversively PoMo and throw motivation out the window.

    Is it even fair to compare a US Protestant Democrat with a right-wing ultramontane Frenchman? Of course the European reactionary will make superior art. One, true, good, beautiful and all that.

    That Stillman was always the "WASP Woody Allen" rather than the "Yankee Eric Rohmer" shows just how ignorant our own cinematocracy has become of the New Wave classics.

    The House speaker sat down with the failed 2016 presidential candidate for an interview on Clinton’s podcast, ‘You and Me Both,’ on Monday, where they discussed the bout of chaos in Washington, DC earlier this month. At one point during the conversation, Clinton argued that President Donald Trump “has other agendas” – though hastened to add that “I don’t think we yet know” what those are – wondering aloud about “who pulls his strings.”

    “I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” Clinton said, asking Pelosi: “Do you think we need a 9/11-type commission to investigate and report everything they can pull together and explain what happened?”

    Speaker Pelosi and Hillary Clinton want to get to the bottom of the Capitol insurgency, and they know who to blame: Vladimir Putin!

    https://www.rt.com/usa/512912-clinton-pelosi-putin-trump-capitol/

    The House speaker sat down with the failed 2016 presidential candidate for an interview on Clinton’s podcast, ‘You and Me Both,’ on Monday, where they discussed the bout of chaos in Washington, DC earlier this month. At one point during the conversation, Clinton argued that President Donald Trump “has other agendas” – though hastened to add that “I don’t think we yet know” what those are – wondering aloud about “who pulls his strings.”
     

    “I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” Clinton said, asking Pelosi: “Do you think we need a 9/11-type commission to investigate and report everything they can pull together and explain what happened?”
     
    Putler! It was Vladimir Adolf Putler all along! Because two crazy old ladies say so!

    Hey, if we can't trust gerontocrats like Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton, who can we trust?

    With the sweet exception of Last Days of Disco, all Stillman's feature films lurch illogically in their second acts and become nonsensical by the third. What in heaven's name is the thematic import, for example, of the protracted crisis at the end of Barcelona where the bride inexplicably holds up the groom all afternoon? What are we to infer about the couple's future happiness, regardless of the halcyon epilogue? Stillman has listed Miracle at Morgan's Creek as one of his top ten favorite movies, which perhaps betrays a bit of a cuck fetish (as see also the 'happy ending' he devised for Love & Friendship's Lady Susan).

    And Rohmer's innumerable beauties are almost uniformly top-notch. Whereas Stillman's are a mixed bunch at best. More to the point, Rohmer's psychological insights and the intricacy of his dances of seduction are immaculate, while Stillman's are usually preposterously leadfooted.

    With all that said, I don't deny that Stillman pictures have a certain measure of charm. Most of them begin promisingly--but the capers he puts them through have no causal logic. He can write some decent epigrams, and sketch charmingly oddball characters. But then he tosses them into a vacuum of errant whimsy either because he desperately lacks human insight or else he's trying to be subversively PoMo and throw motivation out the window.

    Replies: @Reg Cæsar

    Is it even fair to compare a US Protestant Democrat with a right-wing ultramontane Frenchman? Of course the European reactionary will make superior art. One, true, good, beautiful and all that.

    That Stillman was always the “WASP Woody Allen” rather than the “Yankee Eric Rohmer” shows just how ignorant our own cinematocracy has become of the New Wave classics.

    CNN airs guide to DEPROGRAM MAGA SUPPORTERS as cult expert claims ENTIRE country needs post-Trump help

    As calls to “deprogram” Trump supporters mount, CNN has hosted a former Moonie-turned-professional deprogrammer who suggested the whole nation had been “negatively influenced” and needed help. Viewers were not eager to sign up.

    Cult expert Steven Hassan was on Tuesday brought on CNN to advise on how to deprogram members of what he described in his 2019 book as the “Cult of Trump.” Perhaps with an eye toward boosting his deprogramming business, however, he suggested the entire country was in need of his services.

    The poll I saw yesterday–don’t remember which–had Biden polling one point ahead of Trump, which sounds about right.

    Media is always distorting these polling stories. In 2009, media went on-and-on with over-the-top adulation for Obama, but he polled nearly last (at their inauguration) among all presidents elected since WW II.

    (I won’t even mention the distortions inflicted by the pollsters.)

    Political opinion polls are propaganda–nothing more.

    How can we sum up the last four years? Should we even try?

    What a long, strange trip it’s been. From “he has small hands” to “grab ’em by the pussy” to “drain the swamp” to the exhilarating victory over the wicked witch to Russiagate to Ukrainegate to impeachment to the Coronapocalypse to the Summer of Floyd to the post-election clusterfuck to the Capitol protests to another impeachment … it’s been a wild ride. Sometimes exhilarating, frequently heartbreaking, ultimately infuriating, but endlessly fascinating.

    Was Trump’s heart really in it? Did he ever intend to keep the promises he made in 2016? I’d like to think that he ran in good faith. But even if he didn’t, as I’ve said before, we still owe him a debt of gratitude. President Trump has done the world a favor by exposing the malfeasance of the American political, social, and cultural elite. At this point, anyone who does not see that the system is entirely corrupt is hopelessly delusional.

    Where do we go from here? Down the drain, it would seem. Instead of “All the Way with LBJ,” we’re going “Out to Sea with JRB.”

Despite his unhappiness he ended up starting 116 games at DH and only 40 games in LF. The Whitey he is referring to is Whitey Herzog, who ended up getting fired in September for Billy Martin.

    Coincidentally, Walt Williams and Alex Johnson ended up as teammates with the Yankees in 74 and 75.
