After talk of dealing with Marjorie Taylor Greene’s violent, racist, anti-Semitic, you name it rhetoric, Republicans in the House did the opposite of that as Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy let her off the hook and a closed door meeting gave her a goddamn standing ovation. (CNN)

Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers are apparently a thing. (Lainey Gossip)

Britney Spears’ social media manager tried to downplay the conspiracy theories about her Instagram, and you can guess how well that went. (Dlisted)

The Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston rumors are back. (Celebitchy)

Kaleena wants to fight whoever did this:

Courtside Karen is sorry, y’all. (The Root)

From Nicole: Honestly, Drunk History is more informative, educational and honest than what we teach kids in schools. Let’s stop whitewashing history and elevating toxic people like Columbus, maybe? (Oprah Magazine)

“Social media is a potent brain toxin that causes its victims to mistake spectacle for substance, anti-intellectualism for anti-elitism, conspiracy theorizing for critical thinking, and the interests of iconoclastic college graduates for those of working people writ large.” (Intelligencer)

Roxana found this to be very cool:

Zack Snyder flew off the handle at the idea that his fans are “toxic,” which definitely didn’t hurt his case at all. (IndieWire)

Pajiba alum Joanna Robinson has a hell of a WandaVision theory. (Twitter)

And, hey, don’t forget Lauren Boebert is out here embarrassing the hell out of the GOP, too. She’s a dumb-as-balls QAnon moron, too, you guys! (Denver Post)

Congratulations to BlackRaven for being the first to Cannonball (52 books read and reviewed) this year! Earlier in the month, she picked up Beth Bacon’s I Hate Reading: How to Read When You’d Rather Not. Here the narrator is the book itself, letting us in on their fears and heartaches about not being read. Is there a young reader in your life who could benefit from a book about a book teaching the reader to read? (Cannonball Read 13)

And thank you to Kristy for bailing me out on today’s animal content:
