Republicans fight the pandemic


Hemant Mehta explains why we're fucked:

...If this virus truly becomes a pandemic, we’re at the mercy of people delusional enough to think their pleas to God will fix the problem. The same God who presumably created the virus, at least in their minds, will somehow make sure it hurts only a handful of Americans...and a ton of Chinese people.

David Brooks: "Moderate"

From Driftglass:

Hey look! The goof who unstintingly supported George W. Bush as he pissed away the Clinton surplus because he swore that the economy had become a perpetual property machine that could easily support gargantuan tax cuts for the wealthy while fully funding all my Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security...

...and unstintingly supported George W. Bush as he dragged this country into the biggest foreign policy debacle in modern history...

...and got himself promoted from The Weekly Standard wingnut goon squad to The Times op-ed page on the strength of his relentless slandering of liberals like you and me who stood against Dubya's catastrophic policies...

...has opinions. Well isn't that fucking special.

The headline will suffice to make my point: No, Not Sanders, Not Ever He is not a liberal, he’s the end of liberalism.

Brooks then spends the bulk of his 800 contractually-obligated words condescending to explain to us po' stoopid Libtards what being a Liberal means.
