Didn’t we all have the Cincinnati Reds winning 2 of 3 from the New York Yankees/

And what are the odds the Yankees now try to trade for today’s Reds winning pitcher Luis Castillo?

The Kansas City Royals had to leave 10 unvaccinated players off the team as they traveled to Canada. And they beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-1. Maybe they should leave those players home more often?

Top headline on after round one of the British Open “Tiger Woods is battling to make the cut.”

Well, I presume someone is leading it?

Imagine if a blue state decided to restrict interstate travel by assault weapon owners? GOP would be screaming bloody murder. Again, pro life my a**

CNN reports new poll says 29% of Republicans say Joe Biden won the 2020 election. GOP. Is. Now. A. Cult.

One of the most stunning things when you think about 29% of Republicans saying in a recent poll they thought Joe Biden won the 2020 election – EVERY SINGLE GOP MEMBER OF THE HOUSE WAS ELECTED IN 2020. (and 1/3 of the Senate.)

So we gonna throw every 2020 race out?

It’s pretty simple. If their texts on January 6 exonerated Secret Service from any wrongdoing, not only would those texts not have been “accidentally” deleted, but also Secret Service would have already voluntarily delivered them to the January 6 committee.

GOP wants to criminalize any woman, or any friend helping her, who crosses state lines for a legal abortion Also GOP – still glorifies Kyle Rittenhouse, a young man who crossed state lines and gave his friend money to purchase an illegal gun.

I believe Christine Blasey Ford when she says Brett Kavanaugh tried to rape her. Now, if she’s telling the truth, and he had succeeded, and she’d gotten pregnant, would he have insisted she “have his baby? “

Doesn’t matter how many times Republicans like Senator John Cornyn repeat the lie. Democrats are NOT for open borders. Democrats, are, however, for fixing our immigration system. And they know “Immigrants don’t diminish America, they ARE America.”

Ivanka Trump, 73, has passed away. Velveeta Voldemort posted kind words about her on Truth Social. Wonder who wrote it for him.

(Although, no joke, the Former Guy had a fundraising link on his post about the death of the mother of 3 of his children. Very on brand.)

Top headline on NY Times website: “Gas Prices, a Big Inflation Factor, Are Coming Down. Will That Last?” – “Will That Last?” Would it kill the NY Times to write one simple positive headline for President Biden and Democrats?

Limited losses.

Washington Nationals put closer Tanner Rainey on the 60-day IL with sprained UCL. Well, in the small mercies department, at least the last-place Nationals don’t have that many games to close.

The Toronto Blue Jays. 46-42, fired manager Charlie Montoyo today. Fans of the Los Angeles Angels, 38-50 despite a payroll near $200 million, wonder, was Montoyo fined for overachieving?

As schools like Texas, Oklahoma, USC and UCLA leave their conferences and tradition behind for the big bucks while pretending academics is a part of it, when is NCAA going to stop pretending that football players at many of these schools go to class?

If GOP wants to be able to investigate women’s personal behavior to see if they might be trying to travel to get an abortion, why not investigate men’s online behavior to see if they might be trying to travel to purchase a gun to kill people?

If you have a dog that bites someone and you know the dog bites, you can be held criminally liable. Velveeta Voldemort not only KNEW the mob was armed and dangerous, he wanted them to go to th

As GOP Senators line up to attack Democrats & Biden over gasoline prices & blackouts this summer, they’re leaving out 2 things: 1. Gas prices are falling. 2. State facing blackouts -telling residents not to use appliances & put thermosat at 78 degrees- is GOP controlled Texas.

It was 187 minutes from when Velveeta Voldemort left his speech in front of the White House on January 6 to when he told people to go home…

Jan 6 Committee next hearing to focus on those 187 minutes. I’m so old I when remember Rose Mary Woods’ 18 minutes gap was considered proof Nixon had something to hide.

Besides all other BS about Hunter Biden’s laptop, both Joe Biden & his only surviving son admit Hunter is recovering addict trying to rebuild his life.. Not one member of Velveeta Voldemort’s family or inner circle has admitted mistakes or taken responsibility for anything.

As Ali Velshi on MSNBC plays that horrible video of the 90 minutes or so of the Uvalde school shooting, he adds: “Austin American-Statesman makes the decision to remove the sound of children screaming.”

ALL Americans should be screaming over police response & coverup.

Fox News and GOP politicians all over higher gas prices. Prices fall – crickets. Fox and some GOP politicians question accuracy of raped and pregnant Ohio 10 year old girl. Story is proven true – crickets. See the pattern?

As Stephen Miller trended today on Twitter, I take a certain amount of pride that when I made a Rosemary’s Baby joke about his wife being pregnant, James Woods blocked me.

Moving on up.

With all these college football teams jumping ship to the biggest highest profile conference they can find, how long until some school like Alabama or LSU says the heck with it and moves to the AFC South?

SF Giants outfielder Luis Gonzalez, with another scoreless inning in his 4th mound appearance, reminds us that position players pitching is an art form.

Dbacks catcher Carson Kelly gave up 3 runs in bottom 8th.

Beginning to think it might have been a really bad idea for Velveeta Voldemort to have p*ssed off Liz Cheney.

Wonder what happened after Liz Cheney said “Liz Cheney: “President Trump is a 76-year-old man. He is not an impressionable child. And who had to clean the ketchup off the wall?

Meanwhile, back in sports, House Committee on Oversight & Reform will allow Commanders owner Dan Snyder’s to testify via video conference, but only under subpoena & not “voluntarily.” Under subpoena he cannot refuse to answer questions. Why does Dan Snyder still have NFL team?

Velveeta Voldemort says Muskrat is a “bullsh*t artist,” Muskrat says the Former Guy should “hang up his hat and sail into the sunset.” Oh this malignant narcissist on malignant narcissist violence…

All these Republicans talking about investigating Hunter Biden’s business deals – guess it makes sense because they also were outraged about Eric, Don Jr, and Ivanka profiting so handsomely off their dad’s tenure in the White House. Oh wait, never mind.

Despite Senators Schumer and Blumenthal being out with COVID, with backing from Susan Collins & retiring Ohio Senator Rob Portman, President Biden will actually get Steven Dettelbach , his nominee to run the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed.

Good news. It’s a shame there isn’t more of this.

So if all of this January 6th Committee stuff had come out during the 2nd impeachment how many more GOP Senators would have voted for impeachment? And how would Mitch McConnell have kept the total under two-thirds?

I’m so old I remember when Mike Lindell was just infamous for making lousy pillows.

One of today’s bombshells, Velveeta Voldemort had an executive order drafted to seize all voting machines. So of course over on Fox News, the headlines are on a silly comment Dr. Jill Biden made about breakfast tacos.

The price is right?

Heinz Field, known as the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers for over two decades, will soon become Acrisure Stadium, reportedly for $10-20 million a year.

(Acrisure, if you haven’t heard of them, is not a feminine hygienc product, but a newish global insurance brokerage. Don’t like the name? Odds are it won’t last the next two decades.)

Phillies J.T.Realmuto refuses COVID vaccine & loses $262,363 in pay as an unvaccinated foreigner he can’t play Rays in Toronto.

“Not going to let Canada tell me what I do & don’t put in my body for little bit of money,’

$262K? is “a little bit of money”

Can’t imagine how pro athletes get rep of being out of touch a**holes.

Some wonder why POTUS has low approval ratings.

Fox: “Biden gun control speech interrupted by father of Parkland shooting victim.”

CNN -“Biden heckled by Parkland parent at White House ceremony.”

Neither headline: “Biden signs compromise control bil that actually passed.”

I’m a Democrat. I’m a liberal.

But sometimes I get the feeling if President Biden was given a magic wand and was able to make all “progressives” wishes come true immediately the reaction would be “Why didn’t he do it sooner?”

Velveeta Voldemort, 76, has weighed in: ‘President Biden is 1 of oldest 79s in History, but by & of itself, he is not an old man but it has little to do w/ age. In actuality, life begins at 80!’ I could try all day & never write anything that funny. Person woman man camera TV.

Hey media. It’s not just that Herschel Walker is a terrible candidate.

It’s that Reverend Raphael Warnock is an excellent Senator.

And he was right “Some people don’t want some people to vote.”

With chyron “Battle for the Senate,” CNN’s Nia -Malika Henderson saying it out loud about Pennsylvania and other Senate races:

“It’s going to be so exciting to cover these races.”


“Battle for the Senate?”

November isn’t the World Series. It’s our democracy we’re talking about.

Does Very Type A SF Giants Manager Gabe Kapler ever look relaxed?

An 11 run lead will do it.

Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic is planning to skip the US Open because he still refuses to get vaccinated. Talk about throwing away your shot.

Sorry, will NEVER get used to hearing “Madison Bumgarner and the Arizona Diamondbacks come to San Francisco to take on the Giants.

As Fox announcers for Padres-Giants keep talking about the upcoming All-Star game, have to wonder, which payroll is higher? The nine starting NL All-Stars? Or the starting nine for the LA Dodgers?

Lost in shock of Shinzo Abe’s assassination is report gunman believed rumors Abe was connected to religious group he hated. Even in almost gun-free Japan lies & misinformation can be deadly. In heavily-armed US, lies some GOP & right-wing media tell are reckless endangerment.

Velveeta Voldemort had rally Saturday night in Anchorage. Apparently his Save America PAC “signed a lease agreement for $53,081 to use Alaska Airlines Center.” A University of Alaska spokesperson “the university has not been paid upfront.” How cute – they think they’ll EVER be paid?!

The rally included Sarah Palin, along w/ Alaska Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka.

Reminder, yes, Lisa Murkowski can be disappointing. But she’s smart, principled & closest thing to independent GOP has. Tsibaka’s an election-denier sycophant.

This time, this proud Dem is w/ Lisa.

Try to check in regularly to see what they’re reading across the aisle. But somehow I missed Fox News website praising Joe Biden for about a month now of gas prices falling every day.

Apparently Velveeta Voldemort claimed in late 2020 “It’s mathematically impossible for Biden to have won the election.” Another example of why GOP doesn’t want Americans actually to learn math.

GOP & conservative media outraged over left-wing DC activist group offering $50-200 bounty to anyone who spots one of 6 SCOTUS judges who voted to overturn Roe. But bounties on a teen girl raped by a relative and trying to get an abortion, that’s just fine?

Increasingly seems that not only did Muskrat never really intend to buy Twitter, but also that he pretended do so just to get attention, and to cause trouble for a company that he thought wasn’t sufficiently subservient to him.

As CNN reports on assassination of Shinzo Abe, this amazing statistic on 2021 gun deaths:

US – 45,034

Re Brett Kavanaugh being harassed in a DC steakhouse:

Personally I’m not a fan of hounding people from restaurants. But Morton’s said “politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample freedom of the right to congregate and eat dinner.”

Uh, by Brett’s own decision, the “right to congregate & eat dinner” is not in Constitution.

Media: President Biden hasn’t called Brittney Griner’s wife.

Joe Biden calls Cherelle Griner.

Media : Why hasn’t President Biden called the families of others held in Russia? #CantWin

Velveeta Voldemort’s rally tonight in Las Vegas was at Treasure Island Hotel. Treasure? More like “Fool’s Gold.”

Whatever former White House counsel Pat Cipollone today said must have been bad. Expected Fox to ignore it. And they did.

But Fox did find time for a headline: “BORDER BATTLE: governor takes spiraling migrant crisis into his own hands.”

Caravans next week during televised hearings?!!

Meanwhilel WTF CNN? This headline is top of their website. “Highland Park gunman’s family was in turmoil for years before shooting.” Uh, what about turmoil families of people who he shot are in? Even those who survived? And that will never end. You can’t be Fox News, stop trying.

So Wisconsin Supreme Court agreed w/ GOP lawsuit & outlawed ballot drop boxes as alternative to returning absentee ballots by mail. Someone mailed 2 books to me from Wisc. this April. Books still “in transit…” If your vote didn’t matter, GOP wouldn’t try so hard to suppress it.

These days doctors are more worried about liability in treating women having miscarriages & ectopic pregnancies than gun store owners are about liability in selling assault weapons to teenagers. This needs to change.

Numbers game.

Now a rumor that North Carolina, Florida State, Clemson and Virginia are negotiating to join the SEC. SEC is gonna have more teams than their parent company, the NFL.

As ACC and Pac 12 are now exploring a TV partnership following UCLA and USC leaving for the Big Ten, why are we bothering with old college conference titles anymore? More accurate just to name them all divisions of the NFL minor leagues.

Former Stanford star & Brittney Griner’s current WNBA coach Vanessa Nygaard nails the response to “Would Tom Brady be home?” “Tom Brady wouldn’t have been there because he doesn’t have to play in a foreign country to supplement his income.”

British friend about possible successors to Boris Johnson “Hard to know…there is such an awful crowd of self important half wits around him!! ” “Self important half wits.” Sounds familiar.

Watching Cindy McCain accept the Presidential Medal of Freedom on behalf of John reminds us that we could, and can, “disagree without being disagreeable.”

Imagine how different things might be if the media spent as much time now covering what Hillary Clinton says as they do covering the rantings of Velveeta Voldemort.

RIP James Caan. A long and illustrious career. For how many of us was the first time we seriously cried in a movie watching him in Brian’s Song?

UK PM Boris Johnson has resigned. After much of his own Conservative party, including his cabinet, abandoned him. If only American Conservatives had had the same cojones with Velveeta Voldemort.

Some have compared Boris Johnson to Velveeta Voldemort. And yes, there are similarities. But also big differences. As in Boris Johnson has moments of accepting reality.

Fox News is headlining the fact that Nancy Pelosi is on a “luxury” vacation in Italy this week, as if she’s doing something wrong. Gosh, somehow I missed their vacation updates on Cancun Cruz and other GOP leaders.

Thinking if you voted for Nader in 2000 or Stein/Johnson in 2016 you should STFU as far as complaining what hell SCOTUS hath wrought in 2022.

Ending a six game losing game by coming back from 4-0 and being no-hit into the 5th, the Giants went ahead 7-4 in the 9th and hung on to win 7-5. Ending the game with the bases loaded and one of the Diamondbacks best hitters up.

How many SF Giants fans just called to leave messages at their doctors’ offices after tonight? “That cardiac stress test I had scheduled for tomorrow. Cancel it, already had one.”

Cleveland Browns have traded Baker Mayfield, leaving themselves only Jacoby Brissett as a QB backup if Deshaun Watson is suspended for a year or more.

Are the Browns insane? Or just aware that the NFL’s policy has become “If you’re a star they let you do it?”

As some red states consider criminalizing out-of-state travel to obtain an abortion, perhaps some blue states should considering criminalizing out-of-state travel to obtain a gun?

So an Uvalde police officer thought he needed permission to fire upon a clearly armed man heading into a school? Did any of the police officers in Akron ask permission to fire upon a fleeing Jayland Walker?

Amazon made deal w/ possible stake in GrubHub including free GrubHub+ trial for US Amazon Prime members. Sounds good, right? But presume objective is to put Doordash & Uber Eats out of business. Then higher fees all round. Consolidation is NOT good for restaurants nor consumers.

(Ask anyone who lives in a city where one airline maintains a fortress hub.)

So since apparently such blankets are now needed for active shooter drills, what if an LGBTQ group offers to donate rainbow bulletproof blankets to schools?

For all those complaining 50-50 Senate can’t do everything Democrats want: Bill Nelson was good & decent Senator from Florida. He lost to Rick Scott by fewer than 11,000 votes in 2018 If Nelson were still in Senate then either Sinema or Manchin would matter less. #GetMadAndVote

Pro-gun Republicans don’t think Highland Park parents should be charged along with their son who murdered 7 people. Meanwhile, many GOP do want to charge parents who help or even don’t stop their daughter if she wants an abortion. Once again, four words. “Pro Life My A**.”

President Biden today just gave a speech about how the American Rescue Plan will help save retirement pensions for millions of union workers in the US. Is CNN talking about it? Nope, they have a story about “Democratic miscontent.” Crises are clickbait.

Lindsey Graham is afraid that Fulton County DA might share information from his potential interview with the January 6 committee. If he answers the DA’s questions honestly and is innocent, what is Senator Graham so afraid of?

So what do Democrats have to do to get media coverage for the positive things they are doing and trying to do? Start speeches by calling Republicans “stupid” and “losers?”

Had travel client email me she’s tested positive for COVID w/ mild symptoms & decided not to fly home tomorrow. Her company is paying for ticket & for her to isolate in hotel so she can afford to stay put. But have to wonder, how many people would just fly? Be careful out there.

Price for barrel of crude oil dipped below $100 for 1st time since May. After being as high as $130 in March. Gas prices are INCHING down. Of course, why should gas companies seriously lower prices when they can keep up record profits & trust Fox News etc to blame it on Biden?

Katherine Goldstein, Irina McCarthy, Kevin McCarthy, Jacquelyn Sundheim, Stephen Straus, Nicolas Toledo-Zaragoza…. These are the names we should be publicizing and sharing on Twitter. Not the evil man who killed them. Let him rot in prison with his name forgotten.

The ultimate ESPN headline.. “Tiger Woods finishes tied for 39th at JP McManus Pro-Am, where Xander Schauffele wins.”

White Sox closer Liam Hendriks, who is Australian, has had it with gun violence in this country. “Something needs to change. I have to take a driving test to drive in this country, I wouldn’t need a test to buy a gun.”

Researchers say NFL star WR Demaryius Thomas, 33, who died suddenly in Dec, had CTE degenerative brain disease. Sad. Now CTE can now only be diagnosed posthumously. But I’d bet $$ another ex-NFL player w/ CTE is Herschel Walker He needs help, not to be elected to Senate.

Senator Lindsey Graham has been summoned to appear by the Fulton County Georgia DA. No punchline, I just like sharing good news sometimes.

Trying to imagine what would happen if police were called to the home of a black young man who had threatened to “kill everyone” and they found he had 16 knives.

Would any Republican now on the “mental health” bandwagon like to offer an explanation as to why countries around the world have young men with mental health issues and the US is the only country with regular mass shootings? I’ll wait.

Apparently the Highland Park killer, despite having had police called to his home twice that year, had his gun license sponsored by his father back in 2019.

Hey Republicans, if a person can be arrested for helping a woman obtain an abortion, why can’t someone be arrested for helping a murderer buy a gun?

Senate is off this week. But since GOP claims they’ve gone as far as they can on gun control, would love to see a Democratic Senator introduce a bill to have default be US flag flown at half staff. Would save time.

And if air travel, including international travel, weren’t bad enough this summer, now SAS (Scandinavian Airlines System) has filed for chapter 11, at same 900 pilots are going on strike. Waiting to see how this is President Biden’s & Secretary Buttigieg’s fault. #sarcasm

You can tell the subpoenas against members of Velveeta Voldemort’s inner circle by Fulton County Georgia DA are a BFD.

Fox News is completely ignored them while running another website headline story about Hunter Biden.

Today’s GOP – we’ll search women’s private online activities to see if they might be pregnant and planning an abortion.

Also today’s GOP – we can’t possibly be expected to search men’s public online activities to see if they might be angry and planning a mass shooting.

When will we ever learn?

Admit most of the time I don’t follow the PGA tour, never plan to follow the LIV tour. But got to admit, it takes a lot to give the PGA Tour the moral high ground.

Of major US pro sports, baseball generally has most conservative players/coaches. But apparently Chicago White Sox talked to Major League Baseball today about canceling their game & in the end canceled their postgame fireworks show. #babysteps

So now when someone says they’re Velveeta Voldemort supporter & commits horrific crime, instead of just ignoring the crime, some MAGA & right-wing media are going to pretend he was really a liberal impersonating a Tr*mp supporter? Would be good satire if it weren’t so sick.

Washington Post headline “Tr*mp cracks down on deceptive fundraising by others using his name.” Hey, Washington Post, how about a more accurate headline? “Velveeta Voldemort himself daily sends dozens of deceptive fundraising emails.”

Mitt Romney wrote an op-ed for the Atlantic bemoaning lack of leadership in the US. Yo, Mitt, speaking of leadership, how about breaking with NRA-owned GOP and calling for a US assault weapon ban?

Keep thinking on Mitt Romney’s op-ed wishing for “leadership.” I’m realistic, politics is $$ game. Most politicians need donations to get re-elected & not all are rich. But Mitt has both name recognition AND f*ck you money. He doesn’t need to pander. Which makes it even sadder.

Even before COVID, travel agents who book international travel have been aware of US State Dept advisories for other countries ranging from “exercise caution” to “dangerous, do not travel.” Wonder how many other governments with all these mass shootings are now issuing “do not travel” advisories to the US?

So if GOP won’t budge further on gun control, would they agree to a bill saying it’s time for US to have the DEFAULT be flags at half staff?. Would save time.

Great to see so many companies saying they will help employees with abortion costs, including travel. But sadly also realize, in states banning abortion, women who don’t have good full-time jobs with benefits will also be the ones who will most need financial & other help.

3 police officers & a K-9 dog were murdered June 30 responding to domestic violence call in Kentucky, & 4 other officers were shot & injured.

Not talked about enough, when SCOTUS talks about returning powers to state legislatures, they are referring to GERRYMANDERED red state legislatures that in many cases were elected by a minority of state voters.

He tried to overthrow an election, he wanted armed supporters to march to the US Capitol, he was fine with having his VP killed. I believe Cassidy Hutchinson but does it really matter if Velveeta Voldemort also lunged at a secret service officer?

Today’s GOP – no problem for a 17 year old to cross a state line, get hold of an AR-15 and shoot a gun that kills two people. Heck, such a boy could become a hero. But if a teenager or indeed any woman crosses state lines for an abortion, “lock her up.”

So what will a desperate pregnant woman have to do to avoid punishment in some red states if she wants to terminate her pregnancy? Shoot herself in the stomach?

Give the LIV Saudi golf tour credit. Some might have said it couldn’t be done. To give the PGA tour the moral high road.

And the first LIV event in the US is this weekend in Oregon. (There are plenty of protests and no I am not watching.) But is anyone shocked where the second US event in late July will be? Tr*mp Bedminster.

So on brand.

Don’t have to want Liz Cheney to be President or even Speaker of House to support her now. Sports fan analogy – imagine baseball game where team you hate most is playing a team run by Satan. You suck it up and cheer – temporarily – for good vs evil. Plenty of time to boo later.

Just saying, for some of us sports fans it’s easier to temporarily support Liz Cheney than it might be for example to root for Tom Brady.

Watching SF Giants lose a 1-0 game vs the Chicago White Sox at Oracle Park makes me miss two things. 1. Letting pitchers hit.

2. Madison Bumgarner

Random fun thought on a holiday weekend. Because we need fun. How great is it going to be to see SENATOR John Fetterman regularly having to wear a suit on the Senate floor? Pennsylvania, you just have to vote.

Florida Governor now attacking state universities “Give me somebody who served 8 yrs in Navy or Marine Corps. It will be much more beneficial & pertinent than someone $100,000 in debt to get degree in zombie studies.”

CNN is reporting the Stanley Cup was accidentally delivered to the wrong address?!! Was Louis DeJoy somehow involved?


Misery loves company alert as 2022 SF Giants have lost a LOT of 1 run games, and had two walk-off losses vs Atlanta Braves last week,

Minnesota Twins blew lead in 6th inning or later in each of 3 losses in 5 game series vs Cleveland Guardians. Who do the Twins think they are, the Timberwolves?

There’s no such thing as a free lunch. And there’s certainly no such thing as “free legal services” paid for by supporters of a twice impeached former President.

Increasingly obvious that Cassidy Hutchinson was one of the witnesses Velveeta Voldemort tried to intimidate. Now the question, how many has he successfully intimidated?

Velveeta Voldemort fundraising email subject line: “My team has been trying to reach you.” In light of Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony and Liz Cheney’s witness tampering quotes, this line has a slightly more chilling read on it.

As Texas AG Ken Paxton indicates he may use sodomy laws against gay rights I am reminded of one of my favorite Molly Ivins stories. When Texas passed their 1993 law, and the bill’s sponsor & an ally shook hands Moll wrote “Whereupon, the Speaker had to send the sergeant-at-arms over to reprimand them both,, because under the new law, ‘it’s illegal for a pr*ck to touch an a**hole in the state.’

Needs to keep being said, while many headlines now justifiably about SCOTUS overturning Roe V. Wade, so-called “pro-life” GOP is keeping Senate from passing laws to cap insulin prices & to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices. GOP doesn’t care about our lives. Democrats do.

While we disagree on many issues, I really respect Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney for standing up for democracy on the January 6 committee. But if Adam and Liz really care about democracy, it wouldn’t be abandoning their conservative views to get behind the Voting Rights Act.

As Velveeta Voldemort turns his attention to trashing Cassidy Hutchinson, your reminder, all these witnesses he dismisses as liars and says he hardly knew them, are people HE HIMSELF or his handpicked disciples hired.

AMD has reportedly faced major data breach, in part due to employees’ purported use of passwords like “password” and “123456.” Wonder what the average education level of the offenders is… And we wonder sometimes how Americans can make such stupid voting choices.

AG Ken Paxton may use sodomy laws against gay rights. In 1993 when Texas passed law, bill’s sponsor & an ally shook hands. Molly Ivins -“Speaker had to send sergeant-at-arms over to reprimand both, because under new law, “it’s illegal for a prick to touch an asshole” in Texas.

In 2021, about 42,000 people in US died in motor vehicle crashes, average of 102 per day. In 2020, over 45,222 people died from gun-related injuries in U.S, about 125 a day. Now, in mid 2022 COVID deaths back around 400 a day. But yeah, pandemic is over, nothing to see here.”

Freddie Freeman fired his agent, reportedly for not being honest in his off-season dealings with the Braves, where Freddie hoped to re-sign.

Freeman ended up with the Dodgers and is having a good year.. But might be first time an agent was fired for negotiating a six-year $162 million contract.

US anti-choice groups & GOP-led state legislatures trying to stop women living where abortion is banned from seeking one elsewhere. But if life begins at conception, do bachelorette parties for red state women in blue states need to make sure souvenir list includes Plan B?

Memory & true confession from high school: For us Farrell’s waitresses, our duties included taking trash out. Learned great stress reliever was throwing it into dumpster, as hard as possible.

Best projectiles- EMPTY ketchup bottles. (Unlike Tr*mp, we threw into dumpster, not wall.)

Fox News hairsplitting for day. Whether or not SCOTUS judges actually lied in confirmation hearings about overturning Roe V. Wade.

Uh, even GOP Susan Collins said she was misled.

Besides while lying is bad, taking away rights from all American women of childbearing age is much worse.

Ketanji Brown Jackson officially becomes SCOTUS judge Thursday. Considering what Ketanji will have to put up with, is there a judicial equivalent of the Purple Heart, and can she be given it presumptively?

Great news that Senator Warnock has big lead in latest poll over Herschel Walker. But Georgia, don’t take ANYTHING for granted. The only poll that matters is election day. And if anyone thinks GOP is done trying to suppress votes…I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell them.

GOP blaming Biden for people trying to smuggle themselves across the border in trucks is like blaming a storeowner who strengthens locks on doors, if thieves then break windows to get into the store.

We have a labor shortage in the US. Seems to me that people desperate enough to try to get across the border in the back of an unairconditioned truck might be very motivated employees if US could fix our FUBARed immigration policy.

Yaz haz it

So many Velveeta Voldemort backed candidates lost tonight guessing there’s going to be a lot of ketchup cleanup needed tomorrow.

Anyone now have any doubt how many Capitol Police, staffers, and even members of Congress were lucky to have survived January 6?

“They’re not here to hurt me.” Velveeta Voldemort was terrified enough of unarmed Black Lives Matter protesters in late May 2020 he hid in the White House bunker. But rioters with AR-15s on January 6, they were all good.

So Secret Service says they will “respond on the record to the Committee regarding the new allegations surfaced in today’s testimony.” How long until Velveeta Voldemort says he never knew the Secret Service

Republicans KNEW the election wasn’t stolen, they KNEW it was a “Big Lie.” But they used and are using the rantings of a madman as an excuse to try to suppress future votes and steal future elections. Don’t let them. #GetMadAndVote

Has a single leader in a red state celebrating Roe V. Wade being overturned announced new initiatives to get money and help to poor women and girls who will now be forced to have babies? I’ll wait.

The anonymous threatening statements to witnesses read by Liz Cheney today were worthy of a Mafia movie. And they were all at the behest of a former President of the United States. Wrap your head around that one.

Stephen Colbert praising Cassidy Hutchinson. ‘Only 25 years old.” “She can add to her resume. Crisis Management, Excellent Recall. Bigger balls than Mark Meadows.” To be fair, my neutered cat has bigger balls than Mark Meadows.

So how many GOP leaders have already prepared their response? “I didn’t see the hearing, no comment.”

Gym Jordan is about to find out his actions on January 6 can’t be ignored like he ignored wrestlers being sexually abused at Ohio State.

Stephen Colbert Monday night on SCOTUS overturning Roe V. Wade – “Since our last show last Thursday we’ve changed locations. In our last show we were in the Ed Sullivan theater, this week we’re in Medieval Times

Congrats to Colorado Rockies pitcher Chad Kuhl, who beat the LA Dodgers tonight at Coors Field. Per ESPN quoting AP story “Kuhl pitched a three-hitter for his first major league shutout.”

And kudos to the AP writer for not using the usual but redundant “complete game shutout.”

U.S. House Oversight Committe says Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder has not yet accepted their subpoena. The Committee is investigating allegations he fostered a toxic work culture in his organization. Who does Snyder think he is? A GOP politician?

So SCOTUS says it’s now okay if a high school football coach brings a copy of the Koran or the Torah to the sidelines for prayer before games? Got it.

Velveeta Voldemort sends fundraising email taking credit for SCOTUS overturning Roe. “Biggest WIN for LIFE in generation…my great honor to do so! Didn’t cave to Radical Left Dem, Fake News Media, or RINOs.” Uh, most Americans supported Roe. & per an interview the Former Guy gave himself, he wanted Marla to abort Tiffany.

Give me a bleeping break. CNN headline story this am “Liberals lament RBG’s decision to stay on court.” So it’s HER fault? What about lamenting Obama’s decision not to do a recess appt for Merrick Garland? Or blaming the real villian, Mitch McConnell?

So while we’re regulating people’s bodies, isn’t it about time someone starts a test case to claim there is no consitutional right to Viagra?

Conservative acquaintance said after SCOTUS overturned Roe v Wade that people should take responsibility for their actions. Presume he meant women having sex but seems to me for men sex should now not only require consent but also signed waiver promising child support if needed.

SCOTUS ruled in favor of high school coach who “invited” players to pray with him postgame at the 50 yard-line, as “protected by both Free Exercise & Free Speech Clauses of 1st Amendment.

So assume if a coach wants to share Joe Burrow’s defense (posted on Instagram) of a woman’s right to choose w/his players they’re OK w/ that too?

And the hits just keep on coming.

Eight players were ejected in the second inning after Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels had a full-team on-field brawl with multiple punches thrown.

Mariners fans were shocked. They didn’t know their team was capable of getting that many hits.

Weird watching Kenley Jansen blow a save for the Braves today.

Of course as an SF Giants fans I wanted Atlanta to beat the Dodgers.

On the other hand, have gotten awfully used to rooting against Jansen

ESPN headline “Colorado Avalanche win first Stanley Cup since 2001.”

And Toronto Maple Leafs fans are just cursing or weeping.

Media likes idea of midterms being train wreck for Democrats. Confirmation bias is real. And if Democrats keep House & as Amy Klobuchar has been saying, pick up 2 more Senate Seats, 2nd half of Biden’s term could be full of competent accomplishments. To media minds, boring.

Some anti-choice advocates claim abortion pills aren’t safe. FDA in 2018 said US mortality rate associated w/ abortion pills 0.65 deaths per 100,000. US Maternal mortality rate in childbirth – 17.4 per 100,000 pregnancies (& 3X higher for black women.) Again – pro life my a**.

In the wake of Roe being overturned, Red states are claiming they will expand their welfare programs for women & children. They’re as likely to do that as Velveeta Voldemort is to release his tax returns.

A new CBS poll founded 57% of American voters believe SCOTUS also will limit access to birth control and same-sex marriage. Uh, maybe because Clarence Thomas said that in writing?! “When someone tells you who they are, believe them.”

Some discussion as to if GOP retakes House & Senate if they would try a nationwide abortion ban. Of course, such a radical step would never get past filibuster or a Biden veto. Which begs question, which would GOP get rid of first, filibuster or veto power? They have no shame.

Meanwhile, while Gov Ron DeSantis continues pretending he’s an authoritarian king, ICYMI, Florida led the country in both (reported) COVID hospitalizations and deaths last week.

Anti-choice California GOP Sec of State candidate Rob Bernosky suggests people who support abortion should live in states like California that allow it, while those who don’t should live in states that restrict it. Because it’s just that easy to move. Yes, they are that awful.

New York state of nine?

The Yankees were no-hit today by the Astros. No punchline, I just liked writing that.

NFL will begin their disciplinary hearing for Deshaun Watson as to possible suspensions for the new Browns QB, accused of “harassing, assaulting or touching 26 women during massage appointments.”

So if Watson gets off (so to speak) with a light sentence, can we now call it a “30 strikes and you’re out policy?”

So if we’re really going back to what Founding Fathers intended, can we let majorities in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina & Georgia decide gun and abortion etc rights for the entire country?

Marco Rubio claims on Fox that Dems exaggerate SCOTUS ruling: “There were still abortions today. Tragically, there’ll be abortions tomorrow because abortion is not banned.”

New Florida law Jul 1 bans abortion after 15 wks & GOP working on tighter rules.

SF Archbishop Cordileone, who’s infamously contradicted the Pope by saying Nancy Pelosi should be denied communion, called SCOTUS overturning Roe v. Wade “historic” & “the beginning not the end.” He’s not kidding. And this Supremely Evil Court might agree with him. #GetMadAndVote

Interesting. Even Fox News basically ignored Velveeta Voldemort’s Illinois rally. So he’s not just a loser, now he’s committed the ultimate sin in media minds – the Former Guy is just BORING.

Most of media handlines today about SCOTUS overturning Roe V. Wade. This headline from Fox News website – “Massive alligator kills man in ritzy yacht community — and attacks are worsening.”

After SCOTUS overturned Roe V. Wade, Ted Cruz yesterday called for AG Merrick Garland to “be on watch to stop any radicals threatening mob violence.” “Mob violence?”! As opposed to the “tourists” who showed up on January 6 with bear spray and zip ties?

New oxymoron “Supreme Court.”

No justice

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says he has no authority to remove Daniel Snyder as owner of the Washington Commanders. Translation, Goodell has no INTEREST in removing Snyder. Rich white men stick together.

But why does Daniel Snyder still have an NFL team?

Imagine how different the world would be today if men had listened to Anita Hill and Christine Blasey Ford.

Republican party that has no qualms about overturning a 50 year old precedent will have no qualms about overturning the filibuster the first chance they get if they retake the Senate.

He lied about Christine Blasey Ford. Why did Susan Collins or anyone else think Brett Kavanaugh wouldn’t lie about Roe V. Wade being settled precedent?

GOP, with so many anti-life policies, nonetheless claims being “pro-life” as their excuse for overturning Roe v. Wade But Clarence Thomas saying Supreme Court “should reconsider” past rulings on same-sex relationships & marriages, which don’t hurt anyone, is just plain hateful.

Fox News headline claims “leftists descend on Supreme Court hurling violent threats after Roe v. Wade overturned.” For some reason they don’t mention the truck that acually drove through a peaceful group of pro-choice protesters in Cedar Rapids. Sure it’s just a coincidence.

So are the states who have banned or will now be banning abortions also planning to write new laws declaring that not paying child support is a felony?

So what happens now if a woman who doesn’t want to be pregnant demands an abortion at gunpoint?

13 states, including Louisiana, Tennessee and Texas, have trigger laws to ban or curtail abortion now that SCOTUS overturned Roe V. Wade So if you’re a young woman planning to go to college in 1 of those states, heaven help you if you have a contraceptive failure. For starters.

I support a woman’s right to privacy but if some ex-wife, former girlfriend or relative of a Republican politician or pundit has had an abortion and is angry about today’s SCOTUS decision, now would be a great time to come forward.

As some of this testimony at January 6 Committee boggles belief, important to remember – it’s not that all the GOP leaders are that stupid. It’s that they think their voters are.

Some seem surprised that few of the January 6 conspirators bothered to cover their tracks at the time. Actually it’s pretty simple: They expected to win, and that their treason would be not punished, but rewarded.

Not sure what’s worse – the idea that many Republicans still don’t believe Velveeta Voldemort tried to overturn the election. Or that they know he did it and they don’t care.

Imagine if aspiring novelist had submitted prposed political thriller about reality TV host not only somehow winning Presidency once, then losing but also still managing to convince major party he was some sort of god who still deserved abject loyalty? Can you say “slush pile?”

Fox News headline “Bipartisan Senate gun bill gets icy reception from House Republicans.” Uh, if the Senate had a bipartisan bill celebrating motherhood and apple pie, House GOP would be complaining it excluded fathers and cake.

Worse and worser

Brooks Koepka is the latest high profile golfer to join the Saudi backed tour, which means a suspension from the PGA Tour. Saudi LIV Golf has now signed eight of the top 50 players in the world.

Augusta National, home of the Masters, didn’t integrate until 1991. And didn’t allow women members until 2012. Who knew so many golfers would prove it’s possible to be too anti-human rights even for the PGA?

Although, speaking of bad behavior, why does Dan Snyder still have an NFL team?

Back in 2016 Velveeta Voldemort refused to say he’d accept election results if he lost. So suppose we shouldn’t be surprised when once he had power that he tried to use all of it to stay in office – laws and votes be d*mned.

So with these anti-abortion “life begins at fertilization” bills that some states are passing in anticipation of Roe v Wade being overturned, when is the first rich white Republican woman and/or her doctor going to be arrested over a IVF pregnancy?

(It’s not just extra embryos that are often discarded, but “multifetal pregnancy reduction” is common if several embryos become fetuses..).

We’ve now sadly come to expect some deep-red state Senators to think they need to be complicit in Velveeta Voldemort’s Big Lie for political reasons. But Wisconsin is a purple state that elected Tammy Baldwin. Surely, Wisconsin you can un-elect Ron Johnson in November. #VoteBlue

Right now Liz Cheney is one of the best examples of perhaps my favorite Amy Klobuchar quote: “Courage means standing next to someone you don’t always agree with for the betterment of the country.”

GOP more upset about Colbert staffers hanging out in the halls of US Capitol with a dog puppet after interviews than about Uvalde police with guns hanging out in the halls of a school while children were being massacred.

When travel agents travel, we are all used to clients having crises while we’re gone. This week no exception… except that this time it’s probably a client a day coming down with symptomatic COVID. No joke. Be careful out there.
