Extra innings

August 7, 2022


Minnesota Twins manager Rocco Baldelli was ejected after the replay crew overturned a call of “out” at the plate for a Blue Jays running, ruling the Twins catcher had blocked the plate.

Rocco said “it was “one of the worst moments I think we’ve seen of umpiring in any game I’ve ever been a part of in baseball.”

Think it was the wrong call. But “worst ever? Has Baldelli ever managed a game with umpire Angel Hernandez?

Okay then, some times the algorithm REALLY messes up…. Just got an email ad from Ticketmaster: “You love the Dodgers. We’ve got your seats.”

So if CVS and Walgreens pharmacists can refuse to fill prescriptions based on their religious beliefs what happens the first time a pharmacist refuses to fill a prescription for Viagra?

And what if a Jewish waiter or waitress refuses to serve a bacon cheeseburger?

15 hours for Votearama – GOP’s attempt to stop or slow down Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act…

How much longer until they would have gone to penalty kicks?


Republicans spent more time on this performative votearama than they did considering Amy Coney Barrett or checking out sexual assault accusations against Brett Kavanaugh


So can’t wait to see 43 GOP Senators who said US couldn’t afford cap in cost of insulin for people not on Medicare explain before the 2022 midterms how it’s necessary to keep millionaire tax cuts.

May I wish all Democratic Senators a really good night’s sleep tonight after Votearama? And for all Republican Senators, well, bless their hearts.

Lindsey Graham spoke AGAINST a $35 cap on insulin. S.C. ranks 7th highest in USA in percentage of adult population with diabetes. Approximately 1 in 6 African-Americans in South Carolina has diabetes.


GOP doesn’t even want to cap insulin costs for pregnant women. Pro-life my a**.


Not content with being pro-COVID, GOP has now become the pro-monkeypox and pro-polio party.

Ted Cruz is upset about the Inflation Reduction Act adding IRS agents. Maybe he’s worried they’ll audit him trying to deduct Cancun trips as business expenses?


Velveeta Voldemort says he’s going to go to West Virginia to campaign against Joe Manchin.

Uh, one, Manchin isn’t up for re-election until 2024.

Two. Manchin hasn’t been bothered by 48 Senators and most of Twitter barraging him on a regular basis, why would he be scared of a has-been loser former President?

I feel for the flight attendants who had to deal with these cranky GOP Senators after votearama is done. Special sympathetic call out to whoever at United Airlines had to serve Ted Cruz.
