Woke NASCAR?

June 25, 2020

Lots of talk yesterday how the whole Bubba Watson potential hate-crime was just made up, especially as the rope was “just a garage pull.”

So NASCAR released a picture of the “garage pull.”

Two words. Yeah. Right.noose

 

I will really miss Chuck E Cheese’s pizza said nobody.

ESPN headline today is about fantasy football. Beginning to think in 2020 the fantasy is that we can play football.

 

Headline “Dennis Quaid says 39-year age difference with new wife ‘just doesn’t come up'” You know, there are drugs for that…

 

As House prepares to vote on DC statehood, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton argues agains it. “Yes, Wyoming is smaller than Washington by population, but it has three times as many workers in mining, logging and construction, and ten times as many workers in manufacturing. In other words, Wyoming is a well-rounded working-class state.

That’s  a pretty long-winded way of saying Wyoming is white.

Trump apparently has ordered that the Washington DC statue of Confederate Gen. Albert Pike, torn down last week by protesters, be put back up. Could Donald even tell you who Pike was? And uh, paging Mayor Muriel Bowser –  Trump is not the boss of DC.

 

Trump in Wisconsin  “if we didn’t have testing we wouldn’t have COVID-19 cases. Next up – Donald eliminates police radar and breathalyzers and claims he has stopped speeding and DUIs in US.

More Trump in Wisconsin “If we didn’t wanna test, or if we didn’t test, we wouldn’t have cases. But we have cases because we test.” Dear gawd. Donald probably killed fewer people when he talked about drinking bleach.

Hey Trump supporters and science deniers. You DO have a choice about whether or not to wear a mask. Wear one …. or stay home.

You know who doesn’t need to wear a mask? Dead bodies in coffins. Pass it on.

 

If you need a couple hours diversion and a reminder of when Texas had a REAL governor. (PS Again, I miss Molly Ivins, who was Ann’s friend.)

In a day when US COVID-19 cases hit their highest number ever, the Trump administration urges Supreme Court to invalidate Affordable Care Act. Once again, four words. “Pro Life My Ass.”
