82-tweet twitter thread from @spookperson that breaks down some of the recent controversy surrounding Libertarian Conservative and Trump Advisor Roger Stone Jr. Fairly important work here in uncovering some of the complexities surrounding this figure's politics.

This is just one more instance of how the worst people from high school now govern us - we have the right-wing smelly nerds (Bannon, naturally), the stupid rich kids, the Cool With The Bros sorority girl and the M'Lady Let Me Doff My Fedora Before I Neg You guy.

Scum. The most wretched, festering sort sort of proto tri-ungulate scum, and I am not sure why this piece of shit has gotten such a free ride over the years from media such as The New Yorker and the NYT.

"My man about to fire off an outraged telegram to Harper's Weekly over his depiction in the latest Thomas Nast cartoon."

That's very good stuff, especially for so far down the list.

I have to stop reading these now in case I get fired. Is the author of these a writer for a political satire show and if not, when can they be.

My contribution was along the lines of what if the Penguin was hired to be the new Monopoly mascot dude, but srsly what is with Stone's fetish for pinstripes so thick and prominent they look like an old-tymey prison uniform?

my man just got back from the tim burton "Baron Von Swindlestein" casting call

give him a break. he looks really good for someone who survived the hindenburg by using a waiter's body as a parachute.

if you think this is a good look, you should've seen what he wore to the kaiser's 85th birthday gala

my man looks like the second half of his itinerary after the inauguration is "Steal cursed diamond from the Smithsonian."

If you haven't read his Wikipedia bio, you really ought. It's amazing. I mean the guy literally has a Nixon tattoo.
posted by LastOfHisKind at 8:17 AM on March 16


Respectfully, "Has a Nixon tattoo" is underselling the size, location, and appearance of said tattoo.

Man, that Nixon tattoo. I told my friend I've been thinking of getting a tattoo, and we keep sending each other pictures of bad tattoos being like "this is the one. This will by my new tattoo."

But this. This is the one.

That's just his subconscious response to the small part of him whimpering from under the park bench in Limbo.

It knows where he belongs.

He looked more human when he was a walking suit and bandages in the shape of a human.

Who knew opening a store selling cursed items could be so lucrative?
