    Fuhgeddaboutit. Woodward's books deliver nothing except flattery to his sources. As he ages, his books become more and more thick nothingburgers. Who the fuck with a brain in politics would talk to him, Republican or Democrat? He is the go-to chronicler of the congenitally stupid in American politics.

    Facebook just locked up on me for two minutes, and my first three thoughts were: "Here it comes."

    The flip side of that is my district's recent primary (which is the defacto general election*):
    The winner got 19% of the vote. That person WILL win in November and represent our district, period. That means 81% of voters rejected this person. Ohhhhh, plurality.

    *We haven't elected a Democrat since 1878, so the GOP primary is the election.

    No runoff?

    Nope. There is a Democrat challenger in the general, but that person has less of a chance than I do fucking Heidi Klum.

    Exactly. The next guy screwed the pooch on that one. But he was probably one of Trump's "safe" reporters.

    So here’s a tweet from Harris. Typical politics, which ain’t beanbag.



    Here’s my question: Let’s say CV hits in January 2022 instead of January 2020. What do the numbers look like under Biden and Harris vs Trump and Pence? Obviously not zero - Canada isn’t at zero. So what would they be? How would America have looked different?

    One thing is for sure, there would not be an idiot running the country who believes COVID is a hoax and not “tell his people to slow the testing down, please”

    It is a legitimate question to ask about a response under Biden. The states would still have been in the lead, but in an ideal world there would have been someone with experience in (military?) logistics who would’ve maintained a steady hand in DC making sure regions got what they needed and when.
    At least Biden would’ve understood the gravity of the situation and acted somber, instead of bragging about TV ratings. The tone starts from the top.

    Let's face it - we all have an underlying condition - it's name is Trump. Though he's never been accused of under lying amirite?
