On October 7 of last year, we fondly recalled that the New Yorker at one time (a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away) published amusing mixed metaphors that it found in the mainstream press, alongside snotty remarks by, probably, E.B. White. We promised to adopt and continue this storied tradition.
It may be sheer laziness, but we haven’t been doing it.
But this caught our attention a few days ago, a quote from Mike Pence, explaining why he’s defying a DOJ subpoena:
“For me, this is a moment where you have to decide where you stand, and I stand on the Constitution of the United States.”
Maybe this image of Mike Pence trodding all over the Constitution is apt. Just recently, he was a hero of democracy.
More to come, maybe.
