Small fierce mercies.

Tonight Becky Hammon, who is all of 5’6″, became the first woman to coach an NBA game. After Gregg Popovich got tossed, pointed at her, and told her “You’ve got ’em.” The Spurs were playing the Lakers, and were down 11 when Pop got ejected in the second quarter. They only lost by three so overall she did better than he did.-

And Lebron James, doing his hard to hate persona –  “Tonight was a case where she got to step in and show her work, show her talents and her love for the game, and obviously, what she did as a player, first of all, we all know that. So her mind was able to transfer to our league, and she’s been great ever since she got in. It’s a beautiful thing just to hear her barking out calls, barking out sets, and she’s very passionate about the game, so congrats to her and congrats to the league.”

Becky of course, said she’d have rather walked out of there with a win.

Meanwhile, in one of the most 2020 sports stories ever, the Wisconsin Badgers actually made it to a bowl game, the Duke’s Mayo Bowl, won the game, got the trophy – made of Lenox Crystal. And then while celebrating the win in the locker room, yes, their star QB DROPPED it.

Can we call this Cinco de Mayo trophy?

John Cornyn today asks -“Remind me, why would we want to borrow $$ from our children & grandchildren to send a check to someone who hasn’t suffered financial hardship related to #COVID19”? Uh, why should we borrow from them to give a tax cut to someone who didn’t need a tax cut?

Mitch McConnell says the Senate “won’t be bullied” on stimulus checks. Pretty rich considering that Mitch is basically the Biff Tannen of Senate politics.

Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue have been against ANY stimulus checks since April, now they claim, without explanation for their change of heart, that $600 isn’t enough.

I almost like their lies about insider trading better.

500 doses of Moderna vaccine had to be thrown away in Wisconsin after being removed from refrigeration. While it was originally called “human error,” hospital said today employee admitted to doing it intentionally & has been fired. Wonder who that former employee voted for?

Police are now saying they did “everything they could, legally” to investigate 2019 tip that Nashville bomber was building explosives. Explosives! Wasn’t it a tip simply about drugs that led Louisville police to break into Breonna Taylor’s apartment?

WTF Missouri? – Going from Senator Claire McCaskill to Senator Josh Hawley is like giving up your seat in business class for the middle seat in coach next to the lavatories.

F*ck 2020. Now Dawn Wells, 82, Mary Ann on Gilligan’s Island, has died of COVID. 2020 really has been a “three-hour tour” of a year.

Americans making up to $75,000 a year getting $2,000 in a pandemic is an abomination, but millionaires getting a tax cut is patriotic? The Gospel according to today’s GOP.

Bright shiny object alert: So far at least media is paying more attention to Senator Josh Hawley’s planned seditious stunt than to Senator Amy Klobuchar, ranking member on rules committee, calmly explaining the stunt will waste time but won’t ultimately matter.

Another reason we need more women in office – the best women politicians right now recognize Velveeta Voldemort’s wild actions right now for what they are…. a more than month long tantrum. And the best way to deal with a tantrum is not to take the toddler too seriously.

CNN’s Don Lemon asks Amy Klobuchar about those in GOP still contesting election -“How much more proof do they need?” Her response: They’re just messing around, because they’re afraid of Donald Trump.” or as she calls Donald in my favorite of Amy’s descriptions of him “this guy.”

Is part of reason Donald is returning to DC early that he realized today he can always hang out at Mar-A-Lago but he has to be out of White House in 3 weeks?

Saying that masks don’t work because people still get COVID-19 is like saying seatbelts don’t work because people still die in car crashes.
