Join Jim and Greg as they note the New York Times and other liberal media grudgingly admitting that Florida did better than lockdown states in fighting COVID and in keeping its economy alive. They also dig into immigration and border policy as the Biden administration finds out governing is a lot harder than coming up with misleading slogans.  And they tee off on dictionary.com as it adds “supposably” as a real word instead of trying to teach people to use “supposedly.”

    For some reason, “supposably” doesn’t bother me as much as people who think “for all intensive purposes” is correct.

    Re: the border, that’s clearly all Trump’s fault, since if he had let them in before, they wouldn’t be trying to get it now!

    Trump didn’t want to put kids in cages (“shelters”) either, you know, not just Biden.

    I don’t get why all these immigrants want to come to such an evil, racist country to be oppressed by white supremacists ;)

    Maybe the white supremacists do a better job than the brown supremacists that run THEIR countries?

    Rewriting dictionaries to assist the Democratic Party and the progressive cause is far more serious than this kind of silliness.

    Probably “history” more than “dictionaries.”

    No, politicizing the writing of history is old, old news.

    Recently, online dictionaries rewrote the definition of “court packing” to confuse the issue because it was hurting the Democrats.  And added a usage note to the hitherto neutral term, “sexual preference”, to make it a pejorative — because the unspeakable Mazie Hirono said it was!

    Three Martini Lunch addressed this recently.  “I knew Merriam-Webster.  Merriam-Webster was a friend of mine.  You, dictionary.com et al, are no Merriam-Webster.”
