But first . . .

And now . . .
Paul Krugman asks, What Underlies The G.O.P. Commitment To Ignorance?
As everyone knows, leftists hate America’s military. Recently, a prominent left-wing media figure attacked Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, declaring, “He’s not just a pig, he’s stupid.”
Oh, wait. That was no leftist, that was Fox News’s Tucker Carlson. What set Carlson off was testimony in which Milley told a congressional hearing that he considered it important “for those of us in uniform to be open-minded and widely read.”
The problem is obvious. Closed-mindedness and ignorance have become core conservative values, and those who reject these values are the enemy, no matter what they may have done to serve the country. . . .
A column worth reading (as Mark Milley’s two minutes are very much worth watching).
Wait — what? You want more magic?
OK — 35 seconds:
