The Gravel Institute Is the Left's (Perfect) Response to PragerU

It's the highest-stakes battle between two old white men since every war ever.

Update 6/27/2021: It was announced on Sunday that former Senator Mike Gravel had passed away of Myeloma at the age of 91 in his Seaside, Califronia home.

This is a story of two old white men who became online symbols of political movements — in one case intentionally, in the other...less so.

On the one hand we have Dennis Prager, a talk-radio host in his early 70s who promotes a far-Right political ideology. A Jewish man from Brooklyn, Prager has long aligned himself with America's Christian-Right, going so far as to say — in response to then newly-elected Muslim congressman Keith Ellison swearing in on the Quran — that "America is interested in only one book, the Bible. If you are incapable of taking an oath on that book, don't serve in Congress."

No One Knows Elite Victimhood Like Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson attacked Meghan Markle as an example of "elites' unseemly victimhood," but elite victimhood is his whole schtick.

Tucker Carlson is an every man.

Sure, he makes millions of dollars being on TV, but he still knows how tough it is out there for working Joes, and he just wants the politicians and Hollywood bigshots to get off their high horses and stop lecturing us normal folks about how racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia are "problems" for other people. He's tired of guys like him and all the white men in his audience getting pushed around and shamed by the rich jerks with all the power.

Fox News Host: Whoopi Goldberg Is Just as Bad as the Trump Administration

Howard Kurtz is equally tired of Republicans trying to stage a coup and of Democrats getting mad about it.

On Wednesday morning, Fox News host Howard Kurtz took to Twitter to let the world know that both sides are bad in the most hilarious attempt at false equivalency in modern memory.

Host of the Fox News show Media Buzz, Kurtz recognizes the dangerous game the Trump administration is playing. By blocking President-Elect Joe Biden and his team from transitional access to the workings of the federal government, they are threatening the stability of America's institutions.

Joe Biden Won the Election by Fewer than 50,000 Votes

Our broken electoral system makes the endless stress and confusion of razor-thin margins inevitable. But we can fix it.

The panic that enveloped the world on November 3, 2020 already feels like a bad dream.

Despite the best efforts of Bernie Sanders and others to prepare us for the inevitable chaos, the partisan divide between mail-in and in-person voting had the predictable effect last Tuesday.

As the in-person votes accumulated in several key states where mail-in totals were always going to be delayed, the sense that Donald Trump was outperforming expectations—and was likely to secure reelection—was pervasive.
