Join Jim and Greg as they cheer multiple health insurers easing up on deductibles, co-pays, and coinsurance over coronavirus. They also wince as the head of the Centers for Disease Control says it will take two years to fully defeat COVID-19. And they fume as the World Health Organization and others pretend Taiwan doesn’t exist in order to appease China and, in the process, ignores one the most successful coronavirus mitigation efforts in the world.

    Biden is not likely to be the nominee.

    The cancellation of primaries will give the party the excuse to pick a candidate at the convention by other means. They’ll go with Cuomo most likely, or some other governor who can actually act and have influence on handling this virus situation in their state, who they’ll fall in love with. Biden is basically on the outside looking in at everything going on in the news today and for the foreseeable future..

    The Washington Redskins should be able to play all their home games this fall. With their crowd size in the stands, it will be easy to maintain social distancing.

    This can happen only if the Dems can convince Biden to fall on his sword, to plead illness, for example.

    Now, Cuomo as Veep is a more plausible scenario: if they think minority and female Democrats will be OK with another white guy on the ticket. (And if Cuomo’s decision to ban chloroquine doesn’t come back to bite him.)

    With the media behind them, the Democrats can nominate pretty much anybody and have a reasonable chance of winning. Note how close empty shirt Beto O’Rourke and hot mess Andrew Gillum came.

    Apps for tracking infected folks?

    Or the government telling you you’re not allowed to leave your house and make money to feed your family?

    I think I prefer the Singapore / South Korea model.
