Ahead of the field.

Apparently Velveeta Voldemort was at the Kentucky Derby today. So the race featured 20 horses and one horse’s a**.

Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike’s only victory before today was in a $51,500 claiming race. Which means anyone could have claimed – i.e. bought – him for $51,500.

Buster Posey day today for SF Giants. Bruce Bochy probably summed it up “You made the city better. You made the team better. You made ME better.

Great that Dolly Parton will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Her music is important. But time to ask again, and not for the last time, why not Karen Carpenter and the Carpenters?-

Fox News TOP headline tonight is “Hitting Home.” – complaining about pro-choice activists protesting outside SCOTUS justices’ homes. And still not a peep about Kevin McCarthy’s texts and tapes over what most of GOP calls a “peaceful protest” on January 6.

Can media stop saying that Cruz thinks some liberal leaked the Roe V. Wade draft. We don’t know what he thinks. It’s quite likely that the Cancun Crybaby believes or knows it was leaked by a conservative trying to blunt the outrage. Ted is just publicly blaming it on Democrats.

Marsha Blackburn has talked about making birth control only available to married couples. By that logic, Viagra should only be available in limited quantities to married men with wives of childbearing age. And not while those wives are pregnant.

Can someone introduce a bill in Congress to index the ease of obtaining a prescription for Plan B to the ease of obtaining a prescription for Viagra?

Anyone saying it would be political suicide if GOP took back the Senate for Mitch McConnell to end the filibuster in order to pass an abortion ban assumes Republicans plan to keep allowing fair and free elections

Tonight on SNL the cold open went back to 17th century England for a great skit about Sir Matthew Hale who inspired Justice Alito…. A reminder why GOP wants to ban history.

Colin Jost on SNL Weekend Update about the unprecedented leaked Roe vs Wade opinion “‘So the court is usually careful but they slipped up just this once and now they have to live with it forever. Seems unfair.” Would be funnier if not so accurate.
