The Week in Pictures: Narrative Riot Edition

The comically named (but humor-challenged) White House spokesperson Josh Earnest beclowned himself a few days ago with the remark that we’re in a “war of narratives” with ISIS. Actually, he may be on to something. We may well be able to defeat ISIS by unleashing English lit majors on them. One whiff of postmodern narrative jargon from a poet laureate of Bennington College might well reduce the most hardened jihadist to madness, or make 8th century cave-dwelling look pretty good after all. Meanwhile, the real narrative war is happening on the streets of Charlotte. Facts? Who needs facts? The Narrative is the important thing. Oh yeah, Hillary is still on the ballot. Somehow.
