Hmm, that was interesting. Last evening I had one of those “push polls” on my telephone from the Adam Laxalt brigade, which was ever so anxious that I know that Mr. Laxalt was a Primary proponent, an Assiduous advocate for women’s health and safety — why, just look at what he did about that backlog of rape kits! (?) Yeah right. This is supposed to make me forget he’s not wanting to denounce the Storey County Sheriff who has this “little problem” with the women-folk? [Sun] Or, that he had NO plans to file charges against that self-same embattled sheriff. [NVIndy] Or, that the best he could do was put some ‘space’ between himself and the embattled one? [LVnow] When a politician’s name and the word “embattled” show up together, it’s never good news. And, no, some spiel about rape kit backlogs isn’t going to make me gloss over the retention of affection for the Embattled One. Nice try, as they say, but close is only good according to the old saw in horse shoes and hand grenades.
About 22 hours ago the press told me Senator Dean Heller met with Orange Blossom’s latest pick for the Supreme Court and was SOOOOO impressed… [LVRJ] I am less impressed. The Pick seems to have issues with the whole idea of having presidents held accountable for their actions, no special counsels or commissions for him. [CNN] Then there’s the whole Planned Parenthood thing. [PPA]
I could use a bit less of this.
I could use more of those kids from March for Our Lives. I could use more pictures from the District of Columbia, showing people protesting the Capitulation Summit, the incarceration of babies and toddlers, the general cruelty and incompetence of the current administration. [Hill]
