Twizzler Tries Harder!

All that glitters…

Guys, Twizzler took a swing at Handsome Joe Biden and whiffed:

Actually, that was Joe’s house. He bought it as a fixer-upper, and sold it 24 years ago.

Last word to a lone spitballer:

Eric Trump Joins a Biker Gang!

The WaPo has a stunning, deeply reported article up on the Sturgis Biker Rally:

…Within weeks of the gathering, the Dakotas, along with Wyoming, Minnesota and Montana, were leading the nation in new coronavirus infections per capita. The surge was especially pronounced in North and South Dakota, where cases and hospitalization rates continued their juggernaut rise into October. Experts say they will never be able to determine how many of those cases originated at the 10-day rally, given the failure of state and local health officials to identify and monitor attendees returning home, or to trace chains of transmission after people got sick. Some, however, believe the nearly 500,000-person gathering played a role in the outbreak now consuming the Upper Midwest.

More than 330 coronavirus cases and one death were directly linked to the rally as of mid-September, according to a Washington Post survey of health departments in 23 states that provided information. But experts say that tally represents just the tip of the iceberg, since contact tracing often doesn’t capture the source of an infection, and asymptomatic spread goes unnoticed.

In many ways, Sturgis is an object lesson in the patchwork U.S. response to a virus that has proved remarkably adept at exploiting such gaps to become resurgent. While some states and localities banned even relatively small groups of people, others, like South Dakota, imposed no restrictions — in this case allowing the largest gathering of people in the United States and perhaps anywhere in the world amid the pandemic and creating huge vulnerabilities as tens of thousands of attendees traveled back home to every state in the nation.

It seems odd to revisit what was so obvious at the time, but the people who attended that rally went home to pretty much all states and started infecting people. That the surrounding states contributed most of the participants and now are suffering the consequences is both predictable and a freaking shame.

This is not a claim chowder that tastes particularly good.

The Morning Quote

Possum Hollar’s world-famous
Meal Team-6
(H/T: Scissorhead Skinny-D)

MI Gov. Whitemer (on MTP):

“You know it’s — it’s incredibly disturbing that the president of the United States, 10 days after a plot to kidnap, put me on trial and execute me — 10 days after that was uncovered, the president is at it again and inspiring and incentivizing and inciting this kind of domestic terrorism. It is wrong. It’s got to end.

“It is dangerous, not just for me and my family, but for public servants everywhere who are doing their jobs and trying to protect their fellow Americans. People of goodwill on both sides of the aisle need to step up and call this out and bring the heat down. This is the United States of America. We do not tolerate actions like he is giving comfort to, and that’s why we all have to be in this together.”

I’m not in the habit of correcting potential victims of domestic terrorism, but I’d like the governor to explain the both sides of the aisle comment. It seems to me only one the Republican of the aisle has been silent on calling out Trump’s demands for insurrection, extrajudicial executions, vengeance, etc.,  but maybe I missed it.

Get Thee Hence!

Why haven’t you gone to Infidel753’s place yet?

I strongly suggest you don’t disappoint Butters, and you get yer ass over to Infidel’s place for his Sunday Round-up.

Oh sure you could take your chances, but I wouldn’t want to bring Butter’s wrath on myself during The Harvest. He’s already pretty judgey. Get thee hence!
