¡MAGArriba Arriba!

¡Ay yi yi! Tucker Carlson se ha vuelto muy loco! Like all ideological talking heads, Tucker Carlson is predictable; he tells MAGAs what they want to hear. And why not? Preaching to the choir, and giving the choir direction, is what ideological ...


Plan Biden From Outer Space

In the words of John Goodman from Barton Fink, “Jesus, it’s hot.” L.A.’s historic, unprecedented September heat wave is literally murdering me. But you wanna know what’s killing me worse? You people hyuck-hyucking about how California ...

The Untold Story

Resigned to Apartheid

This is my third “apartheid” column in a row—consider it the close of a trilogy. Several readers have noted the depressing nature and resigned tone of the previous two pieces, to which the best reply I can muster is, at this point I genuinely ...

The Untold Story

The Apartheid Turns

Predictions are risky for a columnist. And I’m already on thin ice, having been soundly humiliated by my November 2020 column “Madison Cawthorn: He’ll Never Rub His Balls in Another Man’s Face.” Boy, is my face red (though not as red as ...

Oy Vey!

Curse of the Ghetto Golems

Golem tales always follow the same template: A Jew builds a monster of clay to destroy his enemies, but in the end the golem turns on its creator. In 2019, in a piece that generated unintended national controversy, I wrote about immigrant golems. ...

Chuck the Chalkboard

A lesson from my casting director years: An actor’s instincts are more important than talent when it comes to landing a part. At an audition, you have to be able to read the room. If the room is loose and jokey, joke along. If you sit there like a ...


A Pro-Life Poll Up the Ass

You people, I swear. For months I’ve been longing to write my magnum opus about the superb 2021 post-Covid Taiwanese zombie film The Sadness and its impact on Sino-U.S. relations. Sure, that column would be of no interest to you, and sure, it ...

Golden State

L.A.’s Black Spoilers

Thirty-five-year-old Nicole Mokeme was Portland, Maine’s BLM superstar. She founded “Rise and Shine,” a woodsy retreat where “BIPOCs” could gather and rant about whitey. As Mokeme stated on her website, “as the awareness of white ...
