Saddle-Up Another Goat (Maybe?)

The 2024 Goat Rodeo!

A famous family name is toying with entering the 2024 Goat Rodeo to primary President Handsome Joe Biden:

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said Friday he’s thinking about running for president, but it would be a very different kind of campaign than the ones run by his family predecessors.

“I am thinking about it,” he said. “I’ve passed the biggest hurdle, which is my wife has green-lighted it.” [Ed. RFK Jr. is married to Curb Your Enthusiasm star Cheryl Hines.]

Besides being a Kennedy, RFK Jr. is mostly known for being an anti-vaxxer, which really puts him into a weirdo lane of his own:

One issue puts Kennedy out of step with the Democratic Party. For years, he has been a leader in what he and others call the vaccine resistance movement.

“And all of these injuries that I speak about to children, there is no bigger issue for our country than that,” he said.

Health experts, including organizations such as the American Medical Association, have repeatedly stated that vaccines are safe and effective. Kennedy was asked what he would say to some who agree with him on everything but the vaccine issue.

“Show me where I got it wrong. Let’s talk about it,” Kennedy said.

So he’s got that going for himself.

    I think that crackpot Marianne Williamson (is that her name? who cares) has a better shot, quite frankly. These days, the Kennedy family name has about as much cachet as the Bushes (and that’s not a good thing).

    The first time I got Covid-19 was before there was a vaccine. In December 2019 I was bottling bourbon at my daughter’s distillery. There was a guy on the crew who had just come back from working in China. A few days later everyone else who was there also got really sick. Once vaccinations became a thing all of us on the crew got the jab because no one wanted to go through that again. The second time I got it from my granddaughter who caught it from her uncle. I was fully vaccinated by then and only got a little sick, but Cindy T got really sick, and then recovered. So when the next opportunity arises we will both get the jabs. Not sure why RFK Jr is refusing to get vaccinated, but he’s being quite stupid to not do so. The evidence is out there if he cares to take a look…

        I have squandered my resistance
        For a pocketful of mumbles
        Such are promises
        All lies and jest
        Still a man hears what he wants to hear
        And disregards the rest
        Yeah, I’ve always liked that song…

    • He was taken in my the sociopathic murderer Andrew Wakefield and his lies about the MMR vaccine causing autism. (his ‘research’ was fraudulent)

      Why that guy isn’t in prison, I don’t know.

    Maybe he can get John Kennedy from Louisiana to be his running mate. That would probably get Joe Lieberman’s endorsement.

    • Or at least Foghorn Leghorn’s…

        “And, I have all my feathers numbered for just such an occasion as this.” After the Dog gives him a package that blows all his feathers off and he is left standing in the middle of all his feathers as he says it. One of Foghorn’s most quotable sayings for when things go “pardon my French” tits up.

        And I have ended in a pile of my own feathers more than a few times on this “trail of tears.” It has added just the right amount of humor during not so great moments, for me anyway.

    Listen up, Scissorheads. This is your Captain speaking. [Well, I was one in the army in the sixties.]

    Re jabs, my 5th was on 6 October, and I plan to get a 6th on 6 April, and make it a semi-annual thing, even if I have to pay in full. The latest I heard is that gov’t-sponsored freebies will stop sometime in May but check for yourselves. I may as well make use of a dose that idiots aren’t using.

    I’ve managed to avoid COVID so far, and I still wear a mask whenever I shop, and often I’m the only one. As for the rest, fuck ’em if they can’t take a joke.

    I recommend “BNX N95” masks because they’re a great fit; two straps over the back of your head, and tight around my cheeks* and chin, once you mold the strip to your nose. Search that term on Amazon; currently available for $23.99 for a 20-pack.

    I’m 82 and I don’t want to fuck around and find out.

    No, not those cheeks.

    That imaginary degree in immunology is really paying off, bro.

    I liked the ALG Health PT-N95C-02S. Added bonus, ironic name of “Patriot Mask.” Given the state of “Anti-whatevers” and the “Up is downers” in this country.

    I also wear a mask when I’m out and about.
