Happy Hour News Briefs
You guys, our old pal Coach Dave has an URGENT FACEBERG POST and a CALL TO ACTION!!1!
“PATRIOT ALERT>>>Please contact Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsay Graham and demand a status report on Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Ask 2 things.
“1. We demand an investigation into her mental capacity in regards to her ability to do her job.
“2. We demand she not be permitted to rule on cases if she is not sitting in the courtroom for the hearing of the case.
“DO NOT ASK FOR PROOF SHE IS ALIVE !! Mental capacity and physically sitting in the courtroom.
“Call today (202) 224-5972 CALL NOW. We can’t allow someone to vote in her place.
“CALL NOW!!! Make this post go viral. SHARE and CALL…
“CALL THE WHITEHOUSE TOO 202-456-1111
Nothing much here until, “DO NOT ASK FOR PROOF SHE IS ALIVE !!” – caught my eye. So I googled “Is Justice Ginsberg Dead”, and boy-howdy what a rich vein of conspiracy theories greeted me!
It seems it all started when Petunia & Pals accidentally announced RBG’s death:

“We need to apologize. … A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of RBG with a date on it,” The Other Dumb One said later in the program. “We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident.”
But then it took on a life of it’s own, so to speak:
- Ruth Bader Ginsburg was seen in public, alive and well. Conspiracy theorists still insist she’s dead.
- Trump Allies Think Ruth Bader Ginsburg Is Hiding or Dead. It Started on QAnon.
- Conspiracy theorists insist Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead despite her appearing in public on Monday
Petunia & Pals really should ask for 9P for the job. But also/too: I really hope that Senatorette Graham releases details of his phone log. This is so nuts.
