    What's in dispute, that she was a bigot, or that her bigotry was an underplayed story, as her life and career was celebrated?

    That no one here said she was great and terrific, as you claim.

    You know YF's MO: When he's getting his ass kicked on the politics thread, he finds another one to do his whataboutism act. Like a puppy seeking attention in a crowded room.

    Best hot takes in recent days:

    1. The Red Sox's owners were great, except for those two decades when their racism hobbled their roster.

    B. That Penn State women's basketball coach sure was great, and was a terrific person, as long as you ignore her bigotry against lesbians.

    iii. There's no such thing as plagiarism on a message board.

    No no no.

    Yesterday I learned that the YF Style Guide for bulleted points is:


    Those last two were surprising. It might have been their debut on the YF playlist.

    Or, maybe he’s never made more than three bullets before.

    But maybe they were a way for YF to tell his detractors to go pound asterisk.
