For those new to the blog, this is not the first time the vice president, my former governor, has made an appearance here. I wrote a little about his one term running the Hoosier State here. Too lazy to link version: He was a spectacularly shitty governor.

I actually really like Chrissy Tiegen, which I never thought I’d say about a model. But she’s smart and funny and a caring and devoted mom, all of which are traits I value. Still, she seemed the best candidate for this particular installment of stuff I said adjacent to faces of people better looking than I am. I’m really tired of the shaming accusations that get tossed around.

Not all criticism is shaming, and much of it is legitimate. There’s really a pretty wide chasm between claiming that obesity is a major health concern that needs to be addressed and responding to a sophomore girl’s selfie with “fatass.” We ought to be able to navigate it a lot better than we have.

It’s a lot like the Facebook feed from way too many of your friends, except I know the guy in the photo didn’t say the thing it looks like he said.

* That would be the title above, but it won’t fit on one line.
