It’s Monday, and David Waldman and Greg Dworkin are back for a new KITM, but probably not this Wednesday, as now there is chicken involved. (You need to tune in, I can’t sum up everything, you know.)

Ohio sent troopers and the National Guard to the Texas border. Nobody will say where they are or what they’re doing, or if they actually went, and who’s spending or making money off this.

COVID cases are shooting up, again. Less of the infected are sick and dying, but so many more are sick and dying because so many more are becoming infected. That’s not so hard to understand, is it? Conservatives point out that if so many liberals weren’t so la-dee-dah, showing off their vaccines and all, it wouldn’t have spoilt it for everyone. They could’ve marketed magnet and microchip-free versions if they wanted, also...

Of course, there are a lot of non-imbecile unvaccinated out there. Those folks might require Olivia Rodrigo-levels of persuasion. All it took for Toyota is the loss of tens of millions of dollars of revenue. Fox News’ heart has become heavy as their wallet has become light. Nonetheless, from selling fake vaccine cards, to selling site hits, there still is plenty of money in watching people die. Cutting out the fraud takes the miracle out of miracle cures.

Speaking of frauds, most Arizona Republicans don’t need “results” to tell them what they already believe. Now the Pennsylvania GQP wants a taste of that sweet, sweet grift. What could possibly be wrong with that? Ask Florida man Paul Hodgkins, the first insurrectionist to not get remotely the felony punishment he deserves.

Polling shows 58% of Americans approve of President Joe Biden's job in office. Polling has been much less kind to “polling”, but you realize, the polls could have that completely wrong. Polls can’t hurt Terry McAuliffe. All that money can’t hurt Terry either.

Lindsey Graham said that Republicans should leave DC to prevent Senate Democrats from passing an infrastructure bill via reconciliation, which would work because then Democrats wouldn’t need reconciliation to pass the bill.
