Seeing my Proggie friends’ “ecstasy and agony” cycle after the MSM’s many false claims that Trump is done, reminds me of Charlie Brown, Lucy, and football.
But before I get to the tweet, you probably should know where Steve Hely is coming from, because he is the quintessential media-oriented Leftist. Hely is a comedy writer who worked on The Late Show With David Letterman, The Office, and 30 Rock.
Hely also has a blog. In one post, he had this to say about the excitement of Daytona racing:
Dawned on me that a reason men love sports is the emotions are so intense inhibitions break down and they can express love and tenderness for each other. (War too?)
To illustrate this thought, he included a very moving picture of one soldier consoling another soldier during the Korean War:
To that photo, Hely appended this comment:
(Talking cis-straight men here, friends and fathers and sons and comrades and teammates, gay male affection a different topic)
To save you having to follow his link, it’s to a Huffington Post article that’s tremendously excited about the ramifications of a gay lip lock at the recent Olympics. As for me, I don’t like people who create neologisms by appending the word “cis” to the normal bell curve of human sexual behavior. This is not meant to be a rant against people who occupy the long-tail ends of that bell curve. I have no animus towards them. It’s simply to say that I don’t accept the pretense that, on the human sexuality bell curve, the ginormous bump in the middle is the same as the long-tail on the end — and adding “cis” to words doesn’t change that reality.
Now that you know where Hely’s coming from (very PC, whether or not he’s gay himself), I give you a moment to appreciate his tweet:
“Feels like it’s finally starting to unravel.” – what I’ve thought about the Trump presidency since minute two of inaugural address
