All five of our PA straight democratic votes were received

and recorded! Five more for Biden!

PA mail-in ballot dropoff

I found out some thing yesterday about dropping off mail-in or absentee ballots in PA--or at least in Bucks Co. First of all, it's "one person, one ballot"--iow, you can't drop off your and your spouse's ballot. Your spouse has to drop off their own ballot. But if you are depositing only your own ballot, the process is quick and simple.

Second, if you are dropping off a ballot for a disabled person or someone who is voting absentee because they are out of state on election day, you must have this form: https://www.votespa.com/Resources/Documents/Authorize-Designated-Agent-for-Mail-in-or-Absentee-Ballot.pdf with you. It authorizes you to act as agent for a disabled or absentee voter. I have one of each, and I haven't received my own ballot yet. I'm a little concerned that because of "one person, one ballot" and the fact that I will be dropping off three ballots (with proper forms) I may have a problem, but we shall see. Worst case scenario, I'll stick two of them in the mailbox.

BTW, parking lots for registering to vote sites were crammed yesterday, the last day to register for this election.

Melanoma needs a new PR team

Think about First Ladies past, from Mamie Eisenhower to Pat Nixon to Michelle Obama. Do you believe that any of those women would let their husbands be in the hospital alone--even if it's for "only a few days"--especially if she had the same illness and would not catch anything from him?

It's not like Trump is lying there in a ward, with rows of beds separated only by curtains; he's in a goddam suite, and I would bet the farm that there is at least one other bedroom in that suite.

She hasn't even visited him. Her "people" say that that's out of concern for the health of all the staff who would be exposed to her own COVID. So she's staying in the WH without any staff to take care of her?

She doesn't want to leave her young son alone? A. If it's "only a few days," he would probably enjoy some time off from mom, and B. The boy is fine, old enough to look after himself, with lots of people to take care of him, vs. her old-man husband who has a serious disease and is alone in the hospital. Give me a break.

He is an elderly man with a serious illness, alone in the hospital. When my father was in the hospital for cancer surgery, my mother brought a pillow from home and slept in the recliner next to his bed. Can you seriously believe Nancy Reagan would allow Ronnie to be there, sick, without someone to go tell the nurse to bring some fresh water, or to plump his pillow, or to read to him?

It wouldn't even have to be a genuine expression of love and concern. If it only gave the impression that she was a sentient human being, it would be a win, for her and for him.

If he's feeling so good

and working so hard, why is he in the damn hospital? Send him back to the WH and use that hospital bed for someone who needs it.

Oh, right. Everything about him is a lie.

"Well wishes"

I get it, I really do. You wish someone well, so you must be sending them "well wishes."

Nope. "Well" is an adverb; you use that to describe an action--you are wishing the person (to be) well. The wishes you send can't be well--wishes, afaik, aren't susceptible to illness or wellness.

What you're sending is *good* wishes. Good is an adjective, which is used to describe things. The wishes you are sending are good ones. They can't be well because wishes don't get sick.

Don't say "Thanks for all the well wishes." You will sound like a moron. Say "Thanks for all the good wishes."

/rant off

Just heard the first "well wishes" on CNN and thought I'd speak up. It won't do any good, of course.

CNN asked Dr. Fauci to comment, but he couldn't stop giggling. n/t

News Flash! Proud Boys Refuse to Masturbate!

per Stephen Colbert last night.

This, if true, explains a lot. Semen backup can cause a lot of problems.
