What to Consider: “We’re attracting candidates so addicted to the spotlight that they’ll endure terrible humiliation to hold it. Anthony Weiner running and running again isn’t an abberation. It’s an inevitability.” Here’s my latest piece on the election. It’s mostly about us. 10 Things About This Election You Probably Don’t Want to Hear.

What to Watch: As I mentioned yesterday, The What has an excellent guide to binge-worthy shows. From this list, I especially dig Fleabag and High Maintenance.

+ What to Fiction: The Nix by Nathan Hill. I’m only about a hundred pages in, but damn, this is good.

+ What to Weekend: This isn’t exactly a new pick, but you should be watching SNL this season. Kate McKinnon is a national treasure. And Colin Jost and Michael Che are part of the best Weekend Update in the show’s history. Trust me, the intersection of news and humor is in my wheelhouse.
