This is no April Fools: Susan Sarandon got under the skin of our bloggers today and so we have three very smart, well-argued takes for you to consider; and then we think about the trajectory of Republican politics and conclude with some beloved children's stories... in our modern age.
Channel Surfing makes the claim that it is privilege speaking; Southern Beale says that Sarandon has a right to her opinion, and she has a right to point out how wrong Sarandon is; and we give the last word to Dan Savage writing at The Stranger, who was the very next guest on Chris Haye's show following Sarandon.
Green Eagle tells us in three short paragraphs the essential truth about American Politics (today? yesterday? always?)
Cutting Through The Crap says that it is not just Texas.
Bonus Track: Reading the Pictures gives us an object lesson on classic children's books in today's reality.
