Scoring time

February 1, 2021

NBA All-Star game in two weeks. But for all those fans of games with no defense, the Nets and Wizards tonight scored 295 points Sunday night, Without overtime.

And the Nets had a 5 point lead with less than 10 seconds left… At least NBA has a lottery for the top picks so Wizards can’t look back at game and think their best win of the season definitely cost them the #1 pick.

Spring training seems unlikely to start on schedule. But as much as I can’t wait to hear those words “Pitchers and catchers report,” have to wonder, without the excuse for fans to head down to Florida and Arizona and spend serious money, does MLB care when, or maybe IF it starts?

Cute tweet from our President – how long since we could say that?

Maybe we can get Joe a little toy Amtrak train set to run around the Oval Office to make him feel at home.

Gosh, after months of downplaying COVID-19 risks, suddenly Fox News has headlines like this “Top epidemiologist warns of ‘category 5 hurricane-like surge’ of COVID-19 cases.” Wonder what’s changed lately….

All you need to know about Lauren Boebert is that she thinks a mask is overkill as far as protecting herself and others, but she can’t enter the House chamber without a gun.

Can anyone imagine GOP reaction if Kathy Griffin were elected to Congress?

If Marjorie Taylor Greene wore a tan suit would GOP finally disown her?

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Marjorie Taylor Greene: “I don’t think we ought to punish people from a disciplinary standpoint or a party standpoint because they think something a little bit different.” So executing Nancy Pelosi is only “a little bit different” in today’s GOP?”

GOP says on their website they are “fighting for a freer & stronger America where everyone has opportunity to achieve the American Dream.” So why are Republicans fighting to keep Americans from voting?

Watching recording of last week’s “The Weakest Link,” & WINNER, a woman, missed question about 1st woman nominated for VP by major political party – she struggled to come up with – Sarah Palin?!!

You’d think it wouldn’t be hard to remember all three of them.

Sigh. (Geraldine Ferraro.)

FL Senator Rick Scott attacking Dems COVID plan as a “radical left agenda” & asks if Biden “is not worried about the fact that we have $27 trillion worth of debt?” Gosh, can someone remind me of Scott’s principled opposition to GOP multi-trillion dollar tax cuts for millionaires.

Alan Dershowitz nominated Jared Kushner for the Nobel Peace Prize. Even if most Americans get vaccinated, have a hunch Dershowitz isn’t going to get invited back to Martha’s Vineyard this year either.

Despise Josh Hawley as much as anyone, and am a believer in multitasking. But a fundraising petition to demand Senate expel Hawley now? Could we maybe pass some legislation, confirm Biden’s cabinet and yes, have the impeachment trial for Velveeta Voldemort first?

Sorry, but I can’t take any GOP Senator seriously who talks about Joe Biden needing to be bipartisan when they didn’t say a damn word about bipartisanism for the last four years.

Last week Laurence Tribe made simplest case for still having impeachment trial: If you can’t impeach President for any crime he commits in last weeks of his Presidency, why shouldn’t any future President feel empowered to do anything he/she wants in last weeks of their Presidency?

(Just think, some future President may think they can wear a tan suit WHILE eating a sandwich with Dijon mustard…)
