"Is there anyone who thinks sexual harassment is a real thing? Is there anyone who doesn’t know it’s all a lawyers’ ramp, like "racial discrimination"? You pay a girl a compliment nowadays, she runs off and gets lawyered up. Is this any way to live?"

Yeah dude, I know exactly what you mean.

Like the last time I went into the office, I told an intern, “You totally look hot when you’re researching my stories.” She didn’t respond, so to show how much appreciated her hotness, I gave her a love-tap on her fanny when she walked past.

Now she’s all screaming “Sexual Harassment!” And dude in HR is all like, “This is a serious issue, Mr. Coates.” And and I’m all like, “Bros Before Hos!” And they’re all like, “Hostile Work Environment.” And I’m all like, “Awesome Work Environment!” And my editors are all like, “Fireable Offense.” And I’m all like, “Men get harassed, too!” She tells me “Nice suit” and it’s fine. I tell her “Nice rack” and everyone gets all law-suity.

Anyway dude, it looks like this is my last post here at The Atlantic.

Totally not cool, bro. That chick was harassing me. With her hotness.

Occupy Harvard? Students Hold Walk-Out, Protest Course Of Romney Advisor Gregory Mankiw | Radio Boston


It’s a long hike from the mud-caked tents of Dewey Square to the polished wood and stained glass of Harvard University’s Memorial Hall, but on Tuesday, Occupy Boston came to campus.

And they brought their Occupy-style call-and-response.

“Oh my god, this is a lot of people,” organizer Rachel Sandalow-Ash said.
“Oh my god, this is a lot of people,” the group repeated.
“This is very exciting.”
“This is very exciting.”

About 50 students and Occupy supporters walked out of the introductory economics class taught by professor Gregory Mankiw, a conservative economist who serves as an advisor to presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and was Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors under President George W. Bush.

“This course will influence Harvard graduates.”
“This course will influence Harvard graduates.”

“Harvard students have been complicit,”
“Harvard students have been complicit,”
“Have aided,”
“Have aided,”
“Many of the worst injustices in recent years.”
“Many of the worst injustices in recent years.”

“Harvard students will not do that anymore.”
“Harvard students will not do that anymore.”

 Go Crimson!




The Obama campaign has put together a debate watch game to make sure there’s a real cost to all the attacks and nonsense. Here’s how it works: You pick a word or phrase from the list below to sponsor, and pledge to give $3 or $5 (or however much you’d like) for each mention. So tonight, as the Republican candidates prattle on about defunding Social Security, ending Medicare as we know it, and everything else they support, they will literally be building this campaign.

Check it out, and get your guesses in now before the debate starts at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

Don’t worry, you can set a cap on how much you want to give, in case someone (not saying who) says “9-9-9” two dozen times.

    — Class warfare
    — Repeal
    — Obamacare
    — Fence
    — (De)regulation
    — Amnesty
    — Socialism
    — Romneycare
    — 9-9-9

This is a real thing, y’all. LULZ!

 Debates need to happen when I don’t have to go to work the next day.
