The game’s the thing.

January 26, 2023

Nothing against Scott Rolen. But if he’s in the Baseball Hall of Fame, it’s not just Barry Bonds, but shouldn’t Jeff Kent be in there too?

SF 49ers have decided with defensive lineman Charles Omenihu’s arrest for misdemeanor domestic violence Monday, that they will let him play Sunday. Coach Shanahan “We feel very good letting the legal process take care of itself. And don’t feel we should kick him off our team at this time.”

Wonder if 49ers would feel the same way if Omenihu wasn’t a starter, and it wasn’t the NFC championship?

Really tired of hearing the parents of the Virginia six-year old who shot his teacher claim they had the gun secured safely at home. Clearly, they didn’t..

Banning books, banning AP African American History, attacking tenure…. DeSantis is now bragging Florida is “where woke goes to die.” What Ron means, he wants the state to be where public education goes to die.

Kevin McCarthy’s latest excuse for keeping George Santos and putting him on committees is “I believe in the rule of law. A person’s innocent until proven guilty.” Unless they’re a Democrat, then I’ll kick them off committees if I don’t like them.

If you’re looking for a party game this weekend one option might be to write down some of George Santos’s more outrageous lies, then make up some other statements, and see if your friends can tell the “true lies” from the fake ones.

Or maybe it’s time for “George Santos lies bingo.”

Regular open note to Republicans whining about the debt ceiling: If you didn’t say one word back when our debt was being increased by Trump tax cuts, please sit down and STFU.

Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell & Ilhan Omar are not exactly ideological clones within Democratic party. But they are banding together in protest against Kevin McCarthy’s genuflecting before the extra MAGA GOP cult. Democrats have a big blue tent. GOP is running a circus tent.

Florida mom teaching at Christian school got Toni Morrison’s “The Bluest Eye”, removed from district’s classrooms & libraries. She was “shocked any adult would expose 15-year-olds”to book’s “explicit descriptions”- including incest. Guess she doesn’t let her kids read the Bible.

Many GOP are lying and saying President Biden needs to negotiate on debt ceiling. Your reminder; the debt ceiling is about bills already due, and isn’t open for negotiation. It’s like deciding to stop spending so much on a credit card, and start by refusing to pay your bills.

Kevin McCarthy finds time to send several more tweets today, including one praising an anti-choice march in DC. But still not a single tweet about 2 mass shootings in his own state of California. Once again four words “Pro life my a**.”

US is sending 31 Abrams tanks to Ukraine. Not extorting Ukraine.

It’s nice to have a President defending democracy. It’s nice to have a President.
