Ahead of the game.

May 21, 2022

So when Republicans hear about a big win for Early Voting are they gonna try to get him disqualified? #PreaknessStakes

Lots of headlines “Tiger Woods withdraws from PGA Championship.” So is anyone actually winning the tournament?

It’s May 20. So if the NBA finals goes seven games, we are exactly a month from the NBA finals..

Jif Peanut Butter has a recall of many of its peanut butters due to salmonella. But hey, assume this means MAGA’s will just stockpile and continue eating the products – it’s only science.

The fact that some in GOP are trying so hard to suppress votes now indicates they are still afraid of people voting in 2022 They’ll only stop trying when they think they have permanently rigged elections going forward.

Almost no politics tonight on NBC SNL – l Not methinks that there was no material, but maybe for their season finale SNL figured…no way we can write satire that outdid some of this week’s reality.

As Republicans try to get Americans to lose faith in elections, remember that most state legislatiors, every GOP member of the House and 1/3 of GOP Senators were themselves elected in 2020.

Got phone text message from son w/ picture taken today at Incredible Hulk Coaster, which we rode when he was a child. Captioned only “still a great ride.” And on laptop just now got ad for Universal Studios. Still think we don’t need legislation to protect consumer data privacy?

Seen on “Hungary Today.” “Tucker Carlson, One of most influential people on American political right couldn’t be at CPAC so sent video message saying “Hungary is free, decent & beautiful country that cares about its people..” Fox News didn’t mention it. Hoping we didn’t find out?

Marco Rubio is whining about his campaign emails supposedly going to spam & blaming it on Google because they supposedly favor Val Demings who he calls a “Pelosi Puppet.” Uh, Marco. 1. Demings is no one’s puppet. 2. Since GOP now is all about projection, whose puppet are you?


Ill wind…

May 21, 2022

Eleven home runs hit today at Wrigley Field in one game between Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago Cubs. Well, guess we know the answer to one weather question.. was the wind at Wrigley blowing in or out?

Yes, great comeback story for the Golden State Warriors as they came back from 14 down at halftime to pull within two after three quarters – and then won 126-117.

But actually, Warriors only scored 25 in the third quarter. Tied their lowest quarter of the game. They came back because the Mavericks scored only 13. (including 2 of 13 on 3s.)

Say it ain’t so… Kate McKinnon is leaving SNL after this season.

All you need to know about today’s Catholic Church: SF Archbishop barred Nancy Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion due to her being pro-choice. While Church had no problem w/ Callista Gringrich, Newt’s mistress when he was married to his 2nd wife, being Ambassador to Vatican.

Media loves to complain that Democrats don’t have leaders. Different take – main stream media too lazy to cover leaders with real ideas, when scandal makes better clickbait. Maybe Bill Clinton’s genius was being a policy wonk who behaved badly enough to keep MSM’s interest.

Takeways from GOP PA Senate primary, where top 2 currently separated by about 1,000 votes out of over 1.3 million.

1. Your vote matters.

2. With 7 candidates, difference between Oz & McCormick is fewer than votes cast for any unknown fringe candidate. Don’t throw away that vote.

How long is it going to take before most Americans figure it out? GOP doesn’t actually want to have elections.

Since apparently this proposed takeover is an excuse to pay attention to everything Muskrat says… If some Democratic billionaire really wants to get a strong message out, perhaps they could fund a proposed counterbid for Twitter by Hillary Clinton?

I’m so old that I remember supporting a treasonous coup attempt might have gotten you condemned by the Republican party more than talking about orgies.

SF Archbishop Cordileone bans Pelosi from communion over abortion rights – “grave evil she’s perpetrating, scandal she’s causing & danger to her own soul.” Same Cordileone who won’t release official list of priests known to be credibly accused of child sexual abuse. Jesus wept.

While Abbott’s near-monopoly, especially with WIC low-income families, may take time to solve, looks like infant formula crisis is on it’s way to being solved. Good news, but begs the question – what will GOP and Fox pretend to be outraged about next?
