I haven’t had a chance to see the Bobby-Billie Jean movie Battle of the Sexes yet. Storm prep is bad for moviegoing, y’all. Anyway, I thought of Riggs when I read this passage in a NYT profile of scared white boy Stephen Miller:
He jumped, uninvited, into the final stretch of a girls’ track meet, apparently intent on proving his athletic supremacy over the opposite sex. (The White House, reaching for exculpatory context, noted that this was a girls’ team from another school, not his own.)
We all did stupid shit in high school but not *this* stupid. This administration is chock-full-o-nuts as well as insecure guys with penis envy. Oy, just oy.
