Floriduh Goes For The Gold

Ah, Floriduh, home of the newly wed and the nearly dead, is setting new records:

Florida records most new daily COVID cases in state since pandemic began

Florida reported 21,683 new COVID-19 cases — the most in the state in a single day since the pandemic began, per data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Saturday.

The big picture: Florida is now the U.S. coronavirus epicenter, with the Delta variant driving a surge, Axios Tampa Bay’s Ben Montgomery notes.

To put those 21K Floriduh cases in context, The WaPo tells us:

“The nation is already reporting more than 70,000 cases a day, according to The Washington Post’s rolling seven-day average — an increase of nearly 60,000 in the daily average in less than six weeks. Cases, measured as that rolling average, have risen to levels last seen in February.”

…which is about ⅓ of all cases. Well-played, Floriduh!

And that’s probably why America’s Aging Prom Date and Floriduh Rep. Matt Gaetz is cracking funny:

“You’ve had all the experts say look out for the delta variant or the lambda variant, well next it’ll be the Chi Omega variant or the Pi Kappa Psi variant. I got the Florida variant. I got the freedom variant.”

I guess when you are a Death Cult, the race to the grave is where you get bragging rights?

Floriduh is winning over those frosty people from the land of Poutine and Molson, eh:

Last month, Canada blew past the United States in the share of its population that’s fully vaccinated — 58% as of Friday, versus 49% in the U.S. — to take first place among the seven big industrial democracies. (The United States ranks sixth, ahead of only Japan.)”

Back to Axios, where we learn that 2024 Goat Rodeo wannabe Ron DeSantis is hitching his star to killing the kids:

Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has taken a stand against local authority restrictions, announcing in May that he would pardon “any Floridian” who faces “outstanding infractions” for violating COVID-19 guidance like mask mandates and social distancing.

  • On Friday, he issued an executive order that bars local school districts from requiring students to wear masks when they return to the classroom next month.

I dunno what it is going to take to get vaccines in the arms of those sun-addled fools, or if we should just saw off the state as Bugs suggests.

  1. I’m thinking that by mid-September with ICU’s overflowing with Kids we’ll see the final gauge of these people’s character. I’ll lay my quatloos on not being any different than today.

    You know that Venmo von kiddieschtupper’s vaccinated.

    Somewhere this mo(u)rning I read where we should be referring to Florida’s governor as “Satan” DeSantis. I don’t believe in Satan, but I’ve always felt that humanity has its share of Satan wannabees whose cruelty (evilness) and abandonment of human empathy will be remembered for many years to come…

      My all time favourite line from a song is from Tom Waits’ Heart Attack & Vine; “You know there ain’t no devil, that’s just God when he’s drunk”.

      DeSantis may not be God (Proof: sadly, DeSantis isn’t pretend), but drunk would explain quite a bit, really.

    Like Palin, and (slowly) whatsitsname?, ignore it, it will go away.

    Really, another ten years, rising seas will wash it all away.

    The day will come when the leading intellectual from Florida (she’s the one who can read) will get a copy of DeSantis’ “Serving Florida” platform piece and realize it’s a cook book.

    Nothing will change, of course, but it has been interesting seeing so many of our heretofore horror scenarios play out in real life.

    Applies to DeSantis especially. He’s right up there with Trump putting in his political fortunes ahead of human lives. He’s one sick bastard, that’s for sure.

    You can’t be #1 in new cases without also being #1 in new deaths. Here are the top 5 states in new deaths for the same day:

    Florida – +108
    Texas – +38
    Arizona – +22
    Arkansas – +18
    Alabama – +10

    The tourism industries in those states are having a Devin Nunes Cow as we speak.
