Outer space

An astronaut said something nice about Winston Churchill. Thank goodness he apologized. Didn’t something big happen back then? We forget or, if we were younger than 40 or so, we never knew. Hmmm, most affluent, lifespans 2x their great grandparents, all the riches of the last hundred years. Oh never mind, everybody was evil back then, according to the young who are smart like Fredo.

    One can only hope the astronaut was protecting his financial opportunities and didn’t really believe his abject apology.

    An interesting observation via Instapundit about the crazy-with-rage-mob:

    The protests liberals whipped up against Kavanaugh this weekend, on the other hand, revealed too much about their own weakness. Washington, D.C. is a majority Democratic city with a black majority. But the Democratic voters out there yelling about Kavanaugh were as white as any country club gathering of Republicans. They looked like a line of Starbucks patrons — Caucasian, professional, largely millennial, with earth tones and earnest expressions aplenty. Men and women wore the same fashionable glasses and more or less the same clothes. It was a Pumpkin Spice Riot.

    Where were the black Democrats? Where were the non-yuppies? Hillary Clinton could have asked the same questions on November 9, 2016, after she failed to get them to show up for her the way they’d showed up for Barack Obama. That election, like the Kavanaugh protest, showed that white liberalism has a problem: it’s too liberal for a majority of whites, yet too distant from the concerns of most non-whites.
