It's Friday, which means you'll be looking for something to do to pass the time while you're waiting to bail out of work and start your weekend. Here's a little reading material:
1. Dumb Waiter
A lot of really silly things were said during Ted Cruz's 20-hour "moronathon" on the Senate floor the other day. But there was at least one very strange recurring theme -- and it had to do with single mothers and what's apparently the only job they can get.
2. Go, West
Allen West is a psychopath. No, really, he's terrifying: an unapologetic misogynist with serious anger issues, a history of violent behavior, and an affinity for irresponsible and incendiary rhetoric that's surpassed only by his unnervingly icy demeanor (which is punctuated by sudden flashes of rage). It's a damn good thing he's out of Congress. Now he's out of another job -- at PJ Media, of all places -- for allegedly calling a female co-worker a "Jewish American Princess" during an argument. He also, reportedly, told her to shut-up.
3. Black Skin-thin
Kanye West (no relation to Allen) is once again pissed that somebody isn't showing him the proper respect -- this time that somebody is Jimmy Kimmel -- and he's of course proving that he deserves it by ranting in all caps on Twitter.
4. Ganster Clean
You may not have obscenely wealthy white-girl privilege actually oozing out of your pores the way Miley Cyrus does, but at least you can now go to your local mall and appropriate hip-hop culture in almost the same way -- all thanks to Forever 21's line of suburbanite friendly t-shirts with old school West Coast gangsta rap slogans and images emblazoned on them. So even if you're straight outta Westchester, you can pretend you're straight outta Compton.
Have a good weekend, folks.
