    I love it when people from the other side try to reach across the table. I tried to watch Bill Maher for a while because he frequently would have Republicans on his show. But I just couldn't stand him enough. LOL
    Heh, I definitely didn't see it as reaching across the table. It reminded me more, though nowhere near the in the same league, as the Dead Kennedys attending BAM Magazine's Bammie awards when they got nominated for California Uber Alles. They showed up at a music industry event and started playing the song they were supposed to say, then stopped, whipped around ties over their shirts they'd spray painted "S"s on to make dollar signs, and then did a sorta-parody song of My Sharona as "My Payola", with the refrain "Is my cock big enough, is my brain small enough, for you to make me a star?"

    It wasn't even remotely that same level of "fuck you", but there was still a bit of that for me. It's got it's flaws (designer owes lots in taxes, it's potentially taking gifts one shouldn't as a congresscritter), but there's still a punk rock vibe to it that I liked.

    Slightly off-topic, but I really liked that Lewis Hamilton would use his money to buy a table at the gala, invite young, Afrodescendant* fashion designers and then have Anna Wintour co-host the table. That is the definition of buying up influence.

    See, it annoys me that he keeps doing things that I like.

    AOC supposedly has some afro in her? She'd probably attend such event for free with her free dress, all paid for by Lewis Hamilton, saying: "Max #1!"
