Politicians often rally their supporters with partisan red meat, but these days Republicans are using actual red meat. They’re accusing Democrats of a plot to ban beef, trying to rebrand the Green New Deal for climate action as a nanny-state assault on the American diet. At Thursday’s rally in Michigan, President Donald Trump portrayed a green dystopia with “no more cows.” In a recent Washington speech, former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka warned conservatives that leftists are coming for their hamburgers: “This is what Stalin dreamt about, but never achieved!” Rep.

Some older series have aged better than others – as is often the case, even with ones that are critically acclaimed and highly awarded. Others, like “The Golden Girls,” are still beloved and finding new audiences via reruns and streaming services today. Many classic TV series don’t have a large body of critical writing about them, especially when compared with classic films of similar age. From “All In The Family” to “Mad Men,” some important and groundbreaking TV series were multiple Golden Globe winners for different seasons across their runs. Ranking TV series according to critical acclaim is bit different from movies – because there are multiple seasons, a show might appear more than once on this list.

We’re not 100 percent sure what “boofing” is, despite the fact that this very issue was discussed in a hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. All we know for certain about boofing is that it is distasteful and stupid. As was 2018. In spades. What made this year so awful? We could list many factors, including natural disasters, man-made atrocities, the utter depravity of our national political discourse, and the loss of Aretha Franklin. Instead, we’ll cite one event that, while minor, epitomizes 2018: the debut of Dr. Pimple Popper.
