Heavy medals?

February 9, 2022

Bad enough that media always wants to highlight political failures over successes. But in now these Olympics they’re spending more time focused on skier Mikaela Shiffrin’s two disqualifications than on women who won medals in the events.

Do better, media.

Can’t tell for sure how real camaraderie is between skiing competitors, but with all the bitterness in the world right now, it’s almost more fun to watch some of the women congratulate & celebrate each other than to watch the race itself. #OlympicGames

American-born Eileen Gu, a model and now gold medal free-style skier, was asked about competing for China: “If people don’t like me, that’s their loss, they’re never going to win the Olympics.” Okay then…

The SF 49ers are not in the Super Bowl.

But the local radio station, KNBR will be carrying the game. With a radio pregame show starting 4 1/2 hours in advance. Yes, 4 1/2 hours…. When the pre-game lasts longer than the game…

Tom Brady says he’s “happy” with his decision to retire but added “never say never” when asked about potentially returning to the NFL next season. Translation: Depend if I find something else to do, Gisele doesn’t want me 24/7 around the house.

Tucker Carlson apparently complaining about “overreaction” & defending the anti-vaccine mandate “Freedom Convoy” in Ottawa “This is a peaceful protest, not Al Qaeda.” Wonder how Tucker would feel if people were honking horns outside HIS home nonstop?

Stacey Abrams on taking off her mask around children: “I made a mistake. I apologize.” We’d be in a better place if more politicians could say those words.

Yes, it’s better that Mitch McConnell is being honest about January 6 having been a violent insurrection. No, it doesn’t negate the fact that Mitch is dishonest about almost everything else. Including his reasons for not voting after January 6 to impeach Velveeta Voldemort.

Some in GOP affecting concern that RNC has bought into Velveeta Voldemort’s lies and censured Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.

Uh, maybe if the whole Republican party hadn’t been genuflecting before the Former Guy since he started the Big Lie BEFORE the election?

Rachel Maddow is on hiatus And Stephen Colbert is doing reruns. How are we going to get through this week?
