How'd I miss this Sununu gem? - & GOP pollster says Republicans are mocking 'child' Trump


Luntz said he was not surprised by comments made by New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) that gained attention from the Gridiron Club’s annual dinner.

He’s f—— crazy,” Sununu said of Trump earlier this month at the annual event, known for its roasts of politicians and other figures.

“I don’t think he’s so crazy that you could put him in a mental institution,” he added. “But I think if he were in one, he ain’t getting out.”

Things to ponder: Why Ukrainian refugees have to go thru Mexico

to get here? ( Unless it changed today, sorry been out of pocket. )

Thinking further, why are Eastern European refugees ( disclaimer.. my grandparents were from Ukraine and Poland) any better than anyone else??

Anyone except Republican fascists should be able to come here

Whaaa? Bloomberg - Russian ruble back up.

From Bloomberg...

International sanctions on Vladimir Putin’s regime sank it to a record low of 121.5 rubles per dollar, triggering memories of the battering it took during the 1998 Russian financial crisis.

Things looked dire enough that U.S. President Joe Biden said the ruble had been reduced to “rubble.”

Now, though, it sure hasn’t. The ruble has surged all the way back to where it was before Putin invaded Ukraine, closing at 79.7 in Moscow on Wednesday.

What’s become clear is that despite an incredibly wide-ranging package of sanctions on the Russian government and its oligarchs, and an exodus of foreign businesses, the actions are largely toothless if foreigners keep guzzling Russian oil and natural gas -- supporting the ruble by stocking Putin’s coffers.
