Missed it by… more than that much.

While some of the 2022 NBA playoff series have are back and forth as far as which team wins each game, most of these individual games have all the drama of the Harlem Globetrotters vs the Washington Generals. #Blowouts

“But Manchin and Sinema” is a fact of life in the Senate. Now. If Democrats can hold their Senate seats and flip two, or more, in November, then two Senators matter a lot less.

So was the $1 billion Twitter breakup fee something the Muskrat might have figured was a small price to pay for months of being a headline? Asking for a country really tired of malignant narcissists.

Nick Saban has apologized for saying Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M “bought every player” in their top-rated 2022 recruiting class. Maybe why Saban was angry – he thought Texas A&M had outbid Alabama?

Velveeta Voldemort signed deal to get US out of Afghanistan by May 2021. Biden got blamed for collapse. Velveeta Voldemort’s Administration imposed quotas & tariffs on Canadian imports including infant formula in USMCA trade deal. Biden gets blamed for shortages. See the pattern?

Gas prices are soaring around the world- including in Europe – which relies heavily on gas from Russia. Wonder why no Republicans or conservative media mention that.


On a cheerier note, Arkansas GOP Senator John Boozman just gave a pretty gushing bipartisan speech especially thanking Debbie Stabenow, & Schumer for helping get infant formula bill to Senate floor.

  1. Good for Boozman.
  2. Pretty sure he’s NOT running for President

“Winter Weather.” In late May.

But no, we don’t have climate change issues in this country. #sarcasm

They were careless people, Tom and Daisy – they smashed up things & creatures & then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, & let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

Written about 100 years ago. True about many today..

Senator Warnock accurately said “some people don’t want some people to vote.” Becoming increasingly clear that some Republicans don’t want ANYONE to vote. Democracy is inconvenient for them.
