West and Least

November 2, 2020

Probably small comfort, but the SF 49ers, last place in the NFC West, have a better record than the Philadelphia Eagles, who are in first place in the NFC East.

How amazing was it that Saints, historically an “indoor” team, managed to win a game against the Bears in Chicago, when temperatures maybe reached the low 40s and wind chill made it feel like the 20s. Of course, by Chicago standards that’s practically Indian summer.

You know you’re getting emotionally invested this election cycle —when you start really caring about Vikings Packers game because you know a Minnesota upset will give Amy Klobuchar a nice mental boost heading into last two days of campaigning for Joe Biden!

As Los Angeles Dodgers players probably are awaiting their COVID-19 test results, would it be wrong to hope Trump invites them to the White House?

Ivanka today compared her father to Churchill. Well, Churchill was overweight and used to roam around the house in his bathrobe. Think the analogy stops there.

Watching some of these Trump sycophants on TV and wondering, did they sell their souls to join Team Donald or did they never have souls to begin with?

Yes, President Joe Biden will have a lot on his to-do list. But maybe he can find time for a small medal ceremony for both Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar for their willingness on Joe’s behalf to regularly appear on Fox News.

Trump tweeted out about his supporters who tried to run Biden-Harris bus off the road in Texas – “In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong.” Does Twitter have a dog whistle emoji?

Trump defended his supporters who surrounded the moving Biden campaign bus later in a rally: “They escorted the bus,” Right, they wanted to “escort the bus” like they “escorted” John Lewis the first time he crossed the Edmund Pettus bridge.

Many of us still may wake up in the middle of the night after Joe Biden moves into the White House. But at least we can go back to sleep without checking our phones going “Now WTF did POTUS tweet?”

Some trying to attack Joe Biden as too conservative, some as too liberal, But look at Team Joe Everyone from Bernie & AOC on one side, to Amy & Pete in middle, to Kasich & (Cindy) McCain on the other.

Yeah, the infighting probably starts January 21. But it’s a big beautiful blue tent, with room for all Americans.

Remembering tonight that more sitting Democrats in Congress condemned Bill Clinton over a consensual sexual relationship than sitting Republicans have condemned Trump over more crimes than I could list in a dozen tweets. We need to vote the enablers out.

As much as Donald is known for stiffing people who work for him, wonder how many lawyers will actually show up to help him contest election results?

“Macho Man,” “Fortunate Son” “My Heart Will Go On.” What’s next, Trump campaign at his rallies will start playing “You’re So Vain?” Or “Fool on the Hill?”
