Raise your hand if you're voting for Joe Biden in 28 days.
I really would like Fox News management to explain their grotesquely irresponsible and life-endangering conduct this year.

Everyone who watched that debate deserves $1,000 a month.
You know, @ddale8 is a phenomenon for a reason.
That was a relatively easy debate to fact check because the president has made the vast majority of these false claims before.

Beau Biden was not a loser. https://t.co/hwzlZrjh75
Chris Wallace asking Trump to condemn white supremacists was phenomenal.
Donald Trump isn't a law and order president. He's a president who breaks the law and creates disorder.
Can we please stop calling it “the issue of race” when what we’re really discussing is “the issue of racism”

"Don't ever use the word smart with me." Don't worry, no one has.
I’m a teacher. I would never in a million years let a classroom turn into this.
Joe’s ready 💕
Just kidding. No one calls her an "irreverent asshole." Just a plain asshole, but only when she is writing about things that make large swaths of people feel uncomfortable.
Which is...often. It's called "The Middle Finger Project" for a reason—and that's because we can afford to live better lives than we are.
Ash's weekly column & book (Penguin Random House 2020), of the same title, is designed to encourage critical thinking about society & our role in it, and what it really means to live a life you love. Hint: if you're dying to embark on this grand, daring adventure, then taking the trash cans back and forth to the end of the driveway for the rest of eternity is prooobably not going to cut it.
Subscribe to The Middle Finger Project for new ideas about how to live a good life, and stay for the sarcasm about how not to.
I like to joke that I made my first millions dollars “from the back seat of my car.”
That’s because I originally hail from a rural Pennsylvania trailer park where I desperately needed to figure out what it meant to live a good life and do work I was proud of. (Let’s face it, eight years at the ice cream stand were glorious, but where does a small-town girl go for more?)
That question led me on a life-long journey traveling the open road, studying career happiness, and experimenting in entrepreneurship, when I discovered that we can ~really~ afford to live better lives than we are.
While many of my peers were resigned to accepting their eternal servitude to the system—complete with a side of boredom, exhaustion, and never enough time to finish a lunchtime hamburger—I decided to start writing about it, instead. Enter: The Middle Finger Project. (And approximately 10,000 awkward introductions to people’s mothers.)
I started The Middle Finger Project in 2009 as a way to have important conversations about what the hell we’re all doing on this globe with the time we’ve got. A decade later, what once began as a small online column has evolved into a company with a book published by the biggest publisher in the world, a new school of confidence & communication, and a killer crew of fans who consistently look to TMF to find their voice and remember who they are.
Suffice to say, I never went back to “work” again and have since been harassing the entire internet for the past decade, during which time I’ve become known for my unconventional approach to careers, my voice-driven writing (which I think is shorthand for “this bitch“), and the belief that the right words can change your life.
(Incidentally I also became known for my uncanny ability to make readers feel exactly as if I’ve been spying on them through their windows, which is really only true if you’re Scottish. I can’t resist a good Scottish accent.)
Today I continue to write full-time as an online columnist, both here at the site as well as other unrespectable places online; insist to strangers having an existential crisis that they should really buy my book, and serve as a creative consultant for select projects that have the personality of a piece of cardboard and need to cut through the noise. I also run several internet start-ups because I am clearly a lunatic, and really wish people would stop trying to convince me to like the taste of fish. 🤷🏻♀️
