Here's the original wapo article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/magazine ... rc404=true
Thank you. That worked much better.

So you are surprised that a left wing newspaper is writing a praise piece for a left wing politician?

Not at that level of detail, no.
But this absurd canonization of someone with absolutely no detectable virtues or accomplishments is the most extreme I've seen.

You're not the only one. From the comments:
I'm left wondering why WaPo/Besos wants Abrams so bad.

OMG...the photo with the cape and the shadows and the super-hero pose? I almost laughed out loud.

This is stooping to new lows...even for the Washington Post. Frankly it does this woman a disservice. I didn't know anything about her going in, and that's better than the impression I have now.

The comments btw are much more fun to read than the article.

Pelosi called Trump 'morbidly obese' (his BMI is 30.4, so overweight, yes, morbidly so, no). What then would you call Abrams?

Nice alternative fact, Nancy. That's hilarious.

But but but... isn't fat shaming somebody considered wrong by the Nancy progressive left? good for thee but not for me?
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence
