Seems we have truly descended down the rabbit hole with Alice.


On #MTP, @RudyGiuliani tells @chucktodd “Truth isn’t truth,” when it comes to the Mueller investigation.

Balder-dash!

Declaring wins with thin margins of 1700 votes or so when 8000 are still to be counted? Even if those 8000 all go red, it’s only the warm-up to November. “It ain’t over till it’s over” as Yogi Berra profoundly proclaimed.

Laugh or Cry Campaigning

About that rather unusual campaign ad: from The Guardian:

Liberals might be unable to fathom how this could make voters more likely to vote for DeSantis, yet he clearly feels confident that he’s not the butt of the joke.

The ad serves as a reminder of Trump’s soaring approval ratings among Republican voters, and how difficult it will be for some Republican candidates to win races if they distance themselves from the White House.

DeSantis even seems well prepared for the backlash. He has come under some criticism for using his young children, but on Fox News he said such comments just show people have “no sense of humor” – a line that will surely further please a base that rails against political correctness.
