The news just keeps getting worse for New York’s governor, with state officials saying they feared for their jobs if they did not participate in a cover-up of COVID death data and a powerful and credible interview with a woman whom he allegedly harassed. And what’s this: Connecticut opening up? Is its Democratic governor a Neanderthal in Joe Biden’s eyes? Give a listen.

    Not to nitpick, but NY is the 4th largest state by population, not 3rd.

    You people are clueless. Masks are a form of psychological torture, among other things, which is why their overuse is so terrible. That urbanites like you are so eager to make everything as abnormal as humanly possible is why the pandemic will never end. Ordinary norms — like the simple fact that, in western society, people show their faces to each other — evidently mean nothing to you, so why do you even bother calling yourselves conservative?

    A sane response to the pandemic would seek to maximize normality. Instead, our response — your response — is to maximize abnormality. Who gives a [expletive] whether some psycho on the street yells at you? He’s a pox on humanity.

    I think we listened to two different podcasts.
