Not all numbers are created equal.

Have no problem with David Ortiz being inducted into Baseball Hall of Fame. But Big Papi tested positive for PEDs in 2003, ā€“ along with 103 other players. If Ortiz is in the hall Barry Bonds, for starters, certainly deserves to join him.

Have to think if Barry Bonds had been as friendly to the media and gregarious as Big Papi, they’d both be in the Baseball Hall of Fame now.

St Louis Cardinals stars Nolan Arenado, Paul Goldschmidt can’t play in Toronto due to their not being vaccinated against COVID-19. So if you needed a reason as an SF fan to root against them other than the fact they always hit really well against the Giants.

I can’t be the only baseball fan hoping that the Toronto Blue Jays get into and go deep into MLB playoffs. Would like to see some of these anti-vaxxers decide how much their anti-science views really are worth.

XFL says Las Vegas, Orlando, San Antonio will join the league for the 2023 season. So far. With all these changes how long before some former Pac 12 teams ask to join too?

Dr. Oz seems stressed. Maybe he should spend less time lying about John Fetterman and more time paying attention to Cory Booker. Senator Booker regularly shows us how to be a proud resident of New Jersey.

It’s almost less whether or not Ivana was pushed down those stairs than the fact that it even occurs to us a former President of the United States might be capable of ordering that done to someone.

Conservative media screams “dementia” every time Joe Biden stumbles over words or gets long ago detail wrong in speech. Velveeta Voldemort last night said Mark Kelly, who wasn’t even in Senate in 2020, voted against his wall. So Fox, does Tr*mp have dementia or is he just lying?

Look, I get it with Fox News. But seeing all these stories about Velveeta Voldemort vanity rallies, wonder how much coverage mainstream media would give to regular rallies actually promoting good candidates by Hillary Clinton?

Best line of NY Times coverage of Ivana Trump’s funeral might have been this correction at the end: “An earlier version of this article referred incorrectly to Jeanine Pirro. She is a television opinion host, not a newscaster.”

Wrap your head around this regarding Liz Cheney (from AP) “Facing credible death threats she’s been forced to abandon traditional retail campaigning, trading public rallies & town halls for private events where her presence is often revealed to public only afterwards if at all.”

Brief unsolicited plug – how was I this many years old before people, including my son, got me to start watching Hacks with the so-underrated Jean Smart? Now back to snark.

Actual AP headline “One thing voters agree on: Fresh voices needed in politics.” Actual truth, in 2020, 94.7% of US House members won re-election. (The US Senate was “only” 83.9%)
