  Lockdowns don’t make much sense to me.  They never have.  But, I worked in health care, understand disease vectors, and know that the particle size of a virus is so small nothing that doesn’t screen out less than 1 micron is going to prevent the spread of an airborne virus.  But, I also know […]

Quote of the Day: Forgetting Someone?

 

“Perhaps the most infamous example of Bernie Bro violence occurred in 2017 in what became known as the congressional baseball shooting, wherein Scalise and three other victims were shot during a practice for the congressional charity baseball game. James T. Hodgkinson, who federal authorities identified as the shooter and who died in a shootout with police, was a staunch Bernie Sanders supporter and fit the Bernie Bro descriptor, which has come to encapsulate the segment of Sanders’ insufferable and intolerant far-left supporters, who are mostly young, white males apparently motivated at least in part by racism and sexism.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer a new poll showing DNC Vice chairman Keith Ellison falling behind in his bid to become attorney general in Minnesota.  They also cringe at a New York Times story describing President Trump resistance to using secure phone lines to talk with his family and friends and how China and Russia are almost certainly listening in.  And they throw up their hands as mainstream media outlets admit they have no idea who is responsible for the pipe bomb packages but already blame President Trump and conservative commentators.

Certain of our friends on the Left (not just Senator Flake) are disturbed by Judge Kavanaugh’s visible anger at being called a gang-raping alcoholic. I wonder if they’ve talked to their colleagues of the College Radical Left, from whom they might learn that hearing unpleasant words is just like being physically attacked. https://www.dailywire.com/news/21128/watch-berkeley-students-chant-speech-violence-frank-camp Preview Open

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are encouraged that six months before the midterms, DNC Vice Chairman Keith Ellison is promising that people will die if Democrats don’t win.  It’s an indication that Democrats don’t have much of an agenda to run on other than fear and opposing President Trump.  They also throw up their hands as congressional Republicans reportedly have no plans to try to pass a budget this year because it will be really hard to pass in the Senate.  They react to Sean Hannity being named as one of Michael Cohen’s clients, and while there may be no legal scandal, Hannity is definitely wrong to have not disclosed this connection.  And Jim has some theories about the man in the sketch released by Stormy Daniels.

I got a call yesterday from my college frat buddy, now successful pollster and political consultant, Phil A. “Buster” Mignon. Buster, who is a real-life doppelganger for White House Chief Strategist, Stevie Wonder O’Bannon, said his new client, the Obama community organizers group, OFA (Organizers Fighting America), was building a new tunnel connecting New Jersey and Staten Island. He wanted me to join him at the groundbreaking the next morning on the Perth Attaboy waterfront.

He couldn’t have called at a worse time.
