I am working on an extensive post about the geographical origins of Trumpism, but in the meantime, I just feel like posting something absolutely trivial. (The Trumpism post is still in progress, and while I think it’s important (at least to me), it’s also depressing.)
My current media crushes:
Wonder Woman (okay, Gal Gadot).
All of the regular panelists on Says You!, especially Murray Horwitz, Barry Nolan and Caroline Faye Fox.
Chris Hardwick (fare-thee-well, @midnight!).
And, in my media crush Hall of Fame: Alton Brown.
Looking over this list, what I am struck by is how smart (geeky, too, several of them) all of these people are. Even the stunning Wonder Woman
Gal Gadot, whom I would follow over any battlefield you would care to name, comes across as a sharp cookie. Naive, yes, but intelligent just the same.
The Resident Shrink once told me I have a “brain fetish.” Boy howdy is that true.
