Quoted @AC360

You said "what punishment of gods are not gifts. Do you really believe that?" @andersoncooper, choking back tears, asks Stephen Colbert, as they discuss grief.

"Yes," replies the comedian. "It's a gift to exist and with existence comes suffering. There's no escaping that."

one of my favorite excerpts from my interview with @StephenAtHome. This question he embraces left me stunned when i first read it, and i can’t stop thinking about his answer. It has helped me, and i hope it helps others.

My last trip to the USNA. Pretty sure I spent more time at this great institution than the #StolenValor @RepCawthorn @CawthornforNC who lied about attending and implying he graduated from here. #JackRyan you are not.

@GayIronAvenger @Theresaamato2 @DNC @SenBlumenthal @USNavy Right.

You don’t have a CLEAR understanding of what #StolenValor means. Your lack of understanding is why your outrage is so PHONY!😏

@CawthornforNC Another liar.

How do lying Republicans get elected?

Do their supporters believe a liar will look after their interests? #Delusional

While we’re shitting on @CawthornforNC don’t forget he sued his friend’s insurance for 30million when they offered to pay off his medical debt #StolenValor

@TalkinKnowledge @CawthornforNC @DNC @SenBlumenthal @USNavy Here's the thing: you can pick valor or you can pick whataboutism & so far, you've proven that whataboutism outweighs your commitment to valor & integrity. You can't have both.
