Roger Stone, an eccentric longtime Republican strategist with a tattoo of Richard Nixon’s face on his back, was arrested Friday on criminal charges that include obstruction of an official proceeding, false statements and witness tampering

Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

He does know that Nixon was guilty, right?

Of fucking course Stone is the kind of guy who pretends he's a character in The Godfather: https://www.vox.com/2019/1/25/18197419/ ... h-hunt-cnn

I think it's probably an observation from Chapo, but all of these conservo shitheads think hollywood mafia characters are, like, the pinnacle of manly achievement and they fancy themselves of a kind. An enlightening window into their psyches, imho.

One of the satisfying themes of season 2 of Fargo was that erosion of the old family business in favour of corporate management, from the personal to the abstract, that Reagan's victory signaled. So it's ironic that people like Stone and Trump romanticize that family mob archetype when they are part of a generation that has done so much to elevate the tyranny of accountants and algorithms as America's business model.

Hold on, now! We've yet to hear from any Family Ties showrunners that he wasn't the real-life inspiration for Alex P. Keaton.
