MAGA Braintrust at CA Polls

Get yer MAGA hats here!

Alert Scissorhead Baron vonBeavis alerts us:

California Recall Election Worker Sent Home For Wearing Trump MAGA Merch On The Job

A California recall election worker was “released” from his role for wearing pro-Donald Trump clothing on the job, election officials said.

The man, who was not identified, wore a Trump-themed hat, T-shirt and face mask while working at a West Hollywood polling place on Tuesday, per multiple media reports.

I used to maintain that Possum Hollar mouth-breathers cannot dress themselves, and now we have proof that they can. I stand corrected.

Fallout From The Woodward Book

Hair Füror (H/T Scissorhead Skinny-D)

Disgraced, twice-impeached LOSER ex-prxnint Stupid, the uncontested leader of the Cult, went so bananas after losing the election that General Miley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staffs, had to call his Chinese counterpart twice (once before the Stupid Coup and once after) to assure him that the U.S. had no intent to nuke China and that the government here was stable.

AND THEY BELIEVED HIM?! Excuse me, I interrupted.

Hair Füror responds:

…which to me confirms the story.

And then some time passes, Hair Füror stews in his juices for a while, and then reacts to the gossip from the Woodward book as only he can:

“According to two people familiar with the matter, the twice-impeached former president was sounding testy and had a simple request: He wanted his prominent supporters to go on television and in public this week to declare that Gen. Mark Milley should be ‘arrested’ for ‘treason.’”

You know, have him dragged out back and shot, bury him in an unmarked grave, etc.

OK, time for my usual complaint on these Woodward books: why would a real journalist hold back a story like this just for the sake of book sales. Jeebus, that madman had to be contained from nuking China and Woodward didn’t report it? The WaPo editors agreed?

Filibuster Reform, Maybe?

Joe Biden
(undated file photo)

This slipped under my radar, and it is important: President Handsome Joe Biden, longtime defender of the filibuster, is making his move (emphasis mine):

Biden Tells Top Democrats He’s Preparing Lobbying Blitz on Filibuster Reform, Voting Rights

The president, sources say, has promised to lean on centrists to change the filibuster rules and save Democrats’ imperiled effort to pass a new voting rights bill

And now we have a source (kinda):

It’s not a lot to hang your hat on (the non-denial), but I’ll take optimism when I can find it.

Politico Is The Worst, Part Infinity

Guys, that was the subhead last night on Politico’s website for Newsom’s landslide victory, so I think that’s the completion of our punditry bets in the Good News For John McCain category. We got it 100% right.

Der Tiger Beat auf dem Potomac (thanks Charlie and Watertiger!)  morning’s email thingie has exactly this to say about the recall:

NOT A SHOCKER: Calif. Gov. GAVIN NEWSOM crushed the recall attempt by a nearly 2-to 1 margin.

The recall was a epic, legendary, stupid move by the GQP: A) The California GOP failed to recruit a viable candidate, and 2) Newsom will be nearly undefeatable a year from now in his re-election campaign. This recall gave him incredibly up-to-date polling information for 2022, and I predict very likely that Cali will now modify the state constitution to fix this stupid recall mechanism.

Gov. Newsom Is Not Recalled

And I will now note that MPS predicted Newsom would lap the recall, and boy-howdy, did we get that one right!

Pay your Quatloos.

RIP, Norm MacDonald

The comic was 61 and he had a near decade fight against cancer.

I remember MacDonald as one of the funny Weekend Update hosts back in the ’90s; just dead pan slaying it —especially the OJ news. Of course he was much more than SNL, but that’s where I first saw him and what I thought of first, but he kept producing up to the end.

Norm MacDonald, you will be missed.

Proud Boy Lite Sen. Josh Hawley (GQP-MO)

Laughable coming from a failed insurrectionist.
