Welcome to DU, deerheadgal!

Wouldn’t happen. We’d need a whole sled-dog team to pull Lindsey’s tongue out of trump’s back end.

Just looks like another miserable pathetic incel to me.

That’s all you got, ‘eh dude?

Yep. I’d say that’s about it.

The key to remember with these folks: NOBODY wants to admit they were wrong.

OR, worse, that they've been ROYALLY HAD. (At the end of a freakin' fork!)

NOBODY wants to admit that. And so many of these idiots have given any objective reasoning over to the mirror Pox Noise and OAN and Newsmax and hate radio help to hold up - to keep everybody believing the same bullshit. Because if they really BELIEEEEEEEEEEEEEVE it, many of 'em can be convinced or motivated to act on it. Which is what we all saw on January 6th.

Even Rudy G knew not to make that mistake.

He NEVER used the "election fraud" argument in court. Only out on the sidewalk where all the cameras and microphones were.

Uh-HUH!!! The only thing the regular people understand is "Pass. Or Fail."

It's either/or. NOTHING in between. And NOBODY does "fine points" or middle-ground or wiggle-room or "yes, but..." anymore.

As that old one-liner would say, in a case like this - "Is you IS? Or is you AIN'T?"

As the Ken Kesey crowd would have said - "are you ON the bus, or OFF the bus?"

Or maybe he just covered his tracks fairly well.

STILL needs to be looked into.

Takes me directly to that old campaign saw...

"The fish rots from the head."

Aw, thanks, abqtommy! I still have a lot of old "reporter's notebooks"

filled with my chicken-scratching. Learned to take notes fast-fast-fast! But then again, the challenge was trying to decipher my "lovely" (Er - uh - Ahem! Cough! Wheeze!) penmanship.

The Daily Dread - Tracking the spread, 1/31/21

All times Pacific, source: Johns Hopkins/NBC News

At 11am

Vaccinations given in US - 4,531,214

Personal note - my phone's really temperamental right now, so I'm going from notes I scribbled as I saw the latest graphic on MSNBC. There was earlier data through the weekend but I can't track backwards right now. At least not til I can figure out how to bring my phone back from coma-status. Ordinarily I take a quick photo of the graphic and transcribe from the photo, but right now, it's all pen-'n'-paper.

That's all I've got, too, CaptainTruth.

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
