    By kyle | August 27, 2017

    She is giving up pot, Trump-bashing and ridiculous looks, all at the same time. Naturally the MSM are alarmed. A column.

      She never packed the gear to get Madonna’s “slut chic” to work. I predict it’s too late for her to reconstitute her image.

      Ah, the Angelina Jolie chameleon ruse.

      She, like did AJ, will find out that in the long run, it doesn’t work.

      My condolences to whomever tried to slog their way through Amanda Petrusich’s sludge-like prose (her grandparents no doubt set the family example with their “culture” articles in Pravda).

      I made it to the end of the second sentence and quit.
