OBAMA: A UNITER, NOT A DIVIDER! Al Sharpton and Jack Dunphy, PJM’s man on the beat share a rare bipartisan consensus, though obviously for different reasons. First up, Officer Dunphy:

Murder rates are soaring in Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Baltimore and elsewhere as the police in those cities, acutely aware of the politics of the moment, attune their behavior so as to minimize risk – not the risk to life and limb, which they accept and prepare for as part of the job, but the risk to their livelihood that arises when the tactical decisions they make in the blink of an eye are viewed through a political prism for months or even years.  There is no amount of training that can prepare a cop for that risk; there is only the choice to avoid it.

* * * * * * * *

Crime is up and will go higher.  Don’t expect this to change any time soon.

“Confirmed: Demoralized Cops Equal Higher Crime,” Dunphy’s latest article at PJM.

Read the whole thing, it goes without saying, which makes for quite a juxtaposition with:

SHARPTON: I FEAR FOR THE STREETS AFTER OBAMA LEAVES…

Headline, the Drudge Report yesterday, which Drudge juxtaposed with another headline that Al is likely losing no sleep over: “CHICAGOLAND: City off to deadliest start in two decades…”

If Al is losing any sleep (after his nightly visits to the swank Grand Havana Room cigar club and restaurant 39 stories above Fifth Avenue), it’s that he’ll have very little White House access under a Cruz or Trump administration.

Incidentally, the Venn diagram between the two power-suited, implausibly coiffured New York blowhards is a fascinating one, considering that Sharpton’s public debut was in the late 1980s having seemingly nightly television dust-ups with liberal poseur Morton Downey Jr. In 2016, Trump’s gutter brand of faux-conservatism seems very much like a continuation of Downey’s show.

THE UPRAISED-FINGER PARTY: A Twitter photo-juxtaposition worthy of Drudge.

WITH JUXTAPOSITIONS LIKE THIS, I almost wonder if Matt Drudge is moonlighting as a bookstore clerk in Washington, DC.

JUXTAPOSITION WORTHY OF DRUDGE.

HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: Professors: US flag symbolizes racism, should not be displayed on campus.

Actually, the ‘bots at Bing News seem to be doing a pretty good job of playing Drudge juxtaposition game.

UPDATE: From the comments: “Meanwhile, in a related note, State funding for universities keeps getting reduced. No one at the University professes any understanding of why.”

But when it comes to Hillary trolling, you can’t beat Matt Drudge, master of juxtapositions:

AN ALMOST DRUDGE-WORTHY JUXTAPOSITION in the NYT science pages.

But, I feel sure, unintentional.

REVERSE THE SEXES AND THERE’S NO STORY HERE:

Writing for his college paper, Cory Booker once admitted that he groped a friend when he was 15 years old.

Now the mayor of Newark and a candidate for New Jersey’s open Senate seat, a college-aged Booker described the experience of grabbing the girl’s breast and having his hand pushed away.

But it is unfortunate for him that people are bringing this up as so many other Democratic politicians — and feminist heroes — are having problems.

UPDATE: Ann Althouse proves my point about double standards, and also demonstrates that even I am not immune.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Is Althouse playing the Drudge juxtaposition game?

DRUDGTAPOSITION ALERT: As fellow Insta-guest-contributor Ann Althouse has noted, Matt Drudge “does commentary. You just have to figure out what he’s trying to say with his juxtapositions — Drudgtapositions.”

Like this one last night, juxtaposing our first president in a painting behind our 44th, and a link to a write-up on his infrastructure-obsessed Friday speech in Miami:

Ouch — that’s just brutal.

JEFF SOYER NOTES A POINTED DRUDGE JUXTAPOSITION.

FISTS OF FURY! Great moments in Drudge juxtapositions. (Story links here, incidentally.)

INSIDE OBAMA’S OODA LOOP: More from Roger Kimball, with an assist from Matt Drudge.

AT DRUDGE, another amusing juxtaposition: Rahm Rejects CHICK-FIL-A: ‘Not Chicago Values’… is paired with GODFATHER WELCOMES FARRAKHAN.

GREAT MOMENTS IN DRUDGE JUXTAPOSITIONS:

I’m not sure if Clyburn sees that as a bug or a feature.

RELATED: Newt goes kamikaze.

APPRECIATING Matt Drudge’s skill at juxtaposition.

REUTERS: Democrats Wary Of Their Unpopular President. “Four years ago, Senator Claire McCaskill was one of Barack Obama’s biggest boosters in his presidential campaign. But when he recently visited her state of Missouri, she did not have time to join him. . . . Congressional Democrats are upset, even angry, with Obama right now. They complain he has not consulted them, he moved toward the political right after Republicans won the House in the 2010 election and often has not distinguished between them and Republicans in blasting an even more unpopular Congress.” Not much love for President Millstone.

UPDATE: Drudge features a cruel juxtaposition.
