Feel the Bern or give ‘em Hill, but please, chill out

blog.sfgate.com — How to put this delicately? With all due respect and while hoping to avoid kicking the political hornet's nest, all over again? Oh, screw it: Chill the hell out, rabid Bernie evangelists. Believe me, I get it. Bernie is awesome. Bernie is neat.

Farewell and good riddance from San Francisco, Super Bowl

blog.sfgate.com — Can we say it now? Is it safe? Are all those Homeland Security bros and confused-looking U.S. Army personnel, with their assault rifles and nervous glares, on their way back to base? What about the military snipers, Blackhawk helicopters, FBI investigators, additional surveillance cameras?

UberPuppy is exactly why cab companies are getting crushed

blog.sfgate.com — Sure, there's a long and rather obvious list of reasons Uber is the runaway supernova of "disruptive" startups: the ridiculous convenience, the easy-to-use app, the freedom from having to carry cash or credit cards, the easy price tiers, the unlimited number of potential drivers on duty at a given moment, the fact that the cars (and the drivers) generally don't smell like rotting squirrels and the seats aren't mysteriously sticky and the vehicles are generally not driven by sullen, embittered gnomes who are about as happy to see you as an sledgehammer to the kneecaps.

Kanye vs. Trump: Who tweeted it best?

blog.sfgate.com — Sexism! Racism! Bigotry! Pot acronyms! Baby daddies! Strippers! Misogyny! Titanic egos! Slut-shaming, celeb-bashing, opponent-trolling! Also: shameless lying, false contrition, calling everyone 'lazy' and 'stupid' and a 'loser' and a 'bimbo,' and then chuckling, or sneering, or shrugging it off and basking in the collective recoil. Anal play! Can you tell them apart?

@akornblatt I was equitable. But “Bernie’s an ugly old fag” is very different from the blind, furious GOP-style malice oft slung at Hillary

@karoli @kevinroose You underestimate Trump’s volatility, how much blacks despise him, how inbred his message o’ hate actually is. I hope.

Let the record show @kevinroose went 'Full Trump' on Feb 9 & had to lie down. Also, please stop sniffing glue. It was just one state. Chill.

@michikokakutani Bullshit @nytimes. They are nowhere near the same. Trump harnessed fear & hate. Sanders harnessed wary dissatisfaction.
