GOP Senator Bob Dole Dies at 98

Source: Washington Post

Former U.S. senator Robert J. Dole, who overcame the hardships of dust bowl Kansas during the Depression and devastating injuries in World War II to run three times for the presidency and serve more than a decade as the Senate Republican leader, died Dec. 5 at 98.

The Elizabeth Dole Foundation announced the death but did not provide an immediate cause. He announced in February that he had been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer.

Mr. Dole was often critical of the Republican Party after leaving office, telling audiences that it had become too conservative, with far-right positions that recalled those of his former rival Patrick J. Buchanan. But he remained loyal to the party and, in 2016, became the only former GOP presidential candidate to endorse Donald Trump, whose campaign advisers included former Dole lieutenants such as Paul Manafort.

Despite the harsh turn his party took under Trump, he said in an interview in July with USA Today that he regretted the former president’s loss in November but broke with him over claims of election fraud and was “sort of Trumped out.”

Latest video by the Lincoln Project

A "peaceful" pledge,... celebrating the Insurrection. Yesterday

Anyone else getting "trolled" on YouTube?

Whenever I pull up a progressive video on GoogleTube this weekend, I get a pre-viewing ad from AmeriKKKan FreeDUMB Tour about their upcoming event in my city (Jacksonville FL) next month.

Is this happening to anyone else?

Hard to tell if this is a trolling exercise -- trying to get progressives to protest this October 8-9 event, featuring (DJT Junior) and a whole sordid list of other speakers -- as opposed to a more likely case of really inept targeting of online advertising.

Tempted as I am to show up at the Prime Osborn Center in my "Only You..." t-shirt, I have much better things to do with my time. (It's been almost a year since I've worn it. 'Bout time, doncha think?)

Borowitz strikes again!

TALLAHASSEE (The Borowitz Report)—In what many have seen as a legal setback for Governor Ron DeSantis, a Florida judge has ruled that the state’s residents have a right to a smarter governor.

“The Constitution does not grant you the right to yell ‘fire’ in a crowded theatre,” Judge John Cooper, of Florida’s Second Circuit, wrote. “Similarly, it does not grant you the right to govern a state like a blithering idiot.”

“The Declaration of Independence enshrines the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” Cooper continued. “All three are imperiled in a state run by a blazing bonehead.”

DeSantis swiftly blasted the ruling, stating that it would have a “chilling effect” on ignorant politicians becoming the governor of Florida going forward.

DeSantis’s statement drew strong support from two of his state’s most prominent political luminaries, the former governors Rick Scott and Jeb Bush.

This TLP video is bone-chilling!

Glad they're focusing the blame on (mo)Ron DeathSentence!

It's about time...!

The Lincoln Project has produced an ad focused on the Florida Goobernor's homicidal behavior and speech. Finally!

Keep 'em coming, TLP!

Man who made fun of COVID dies of virus

From KTLA-TV, Los Angeles (posted July 24):
A man who mocked COVID-19 vaccinations died this week at a Los Angeles-area hospital after contracting the virus.

Stephen Harmon was 34.

Harmon died on Wednesday at Corona Regional Medical Center, about an hour’s drive east of Los Angeles.

Three days before his death, Harmon tweeted: “If you don’t have faith that God can heal me over your stupid ventilator then keep the Hell out of my ICU room, there’s no room in here for fear or lack of faith!”

Before his hospitalization, Harmon had made fun of vaccination efforts on social media.

“I got 99 problems but a vax ain’t one,” he said in a tweet last month.

On July 8, he posted: “Biden’s door to door vaccine ‘surveyors’ really should be called JaCovid Witnesses...”

As tempting is to say "Serves you right!" or some other snide comment, I have to wonder how many other people were exposed to the virus by HARMon. How many patients had to cling to life waiting for a bed in that ICU, or for access to a respirator? And how are the hospital staff coping with this latest wave?
