The Giants score a run, the Giants score a run.

June 15, 2021

Five in fact. After scoring ONE run in regulation in three games against Washington Nationals, the SF Giants scored five against the Arizona Diamonbacks Monday night. Baseball is a funny game.

MLB expected to announce any pitchers caught w/ foreign substance will be suspended for 10 days w/ pay. So about same as minimum trip to IL. Not that any pitchers who know what Spider Tack can do for ball movement would risk missing a start or two for a paid vacation….

Just thinking, MLB is discussing a pitch clock to speed up games. Can the US Senate start discussing something to speed up votes?

Tuned into Late Show with Stephen Colbert and CBS commercial for Evening News “Biden. Putin. Face to Face..”. So this is like the NBA Finals for democracy vs totalitarianism? #ratings

GOP in Ohio trying to make it so physicians, hospitals and health insurance companies could refuse to provide or pay for a medical service if it violates their moral beliefs.

Okay, who is going to be the first physician to refuse to prescribe Viagra for any unmarried man?

Alabama, Arkansas, Missouri, Nevada, Texas, Utah and Wyoming have seen their COVID infection rates rise in last two weeks. They are all lower than the 43% US fully vaccinated average. I’m SURE it’s just a coincidence.

NN Chyron “Israel’s Netanyahu ousted from office but vows to return.” Is he planning to send tourists to “The Knesset?”

Great quote from Batman – The Dark Knight “You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.” Eric Clapton is 76 years old.

Your reminder, despite at least four mass shootings this past weekend, today’s GOP thinks voting is more dangerous than guns.

Unfriendly skies: FAA notes “nearly three-fourths of unruly behavior” reports were of passengers who refused to wear masks on flights.” I am shocked, shocked.

Fox News Headline “Biden breaks with political norms, slams Trump and Republicans on foreign soil.”

“Breaks with political norms.” Wow, that’s almost as good as Kayleigh McEnany’s “I never lied to you.”

So how long until Marjorie Taylor Greene denies apologizing for comparing COVID-19 rules to the holocaust?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says that it’s “highly unlikely” he would allow Biden to fill a Supreme Court vacancy in 2024 if he’s majority leader — or even 2023.

Uh, does anyone think Mitch wouldn’t try to stop Biden filling a SCOTUS vacancy if one happened tomorrow?
