April Fools! It is only day one of April, but there are plenty of fools to call out. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin only have a couple of hours today, but a whole month to go:
Let’s start with Ted Cruz of the panhandle, Matt Gaetz. Gaetz’ Mann act adds a few new players, including a former Department of Justice official, a presumed dead Iranian hostage, Andrew McCabe, William Barr… it’s enough to make your Tucker pucker. Why is this man smiling?
Everyone in the world just had their opinions of Georgia completely confirmed this week, much to the dismay of the world-wide corporations headquartered there. Delta Air Lines found Georgian voter suppression unacceptable, while Hollywood reconsidered filming in Georgia, for the umpteenth time.
The Missouri Gop doesn’t want Georgians to get all the glory on abusing voters and the poor. Democrat Rita Hart drops out of the House race that she was losing by 6 points, because of the 1/6 insurrection... and that’s what Dems do. Kevin McCarthy takes a victory lap, because that’s what Republicans do.
Non-fool approval for the US vaccine rollout continues to surge. If only this was a non-fool world, we’d be in great shape. Alex Berenson could be the pandemic’s wrongest man, but he couldn’t have done it without fools helping. Dr. Fauci cuts Dr. Birx some slack. Someday, scientists will take be able to remove their faces from their palms.
