Georgia's on my Mind


This is the kind of election that staggers the imagination. Bearing in mind that the people of Georgia less than two weeks ago sent back to Washington an unstable imbecile like Marjorie Taylor Greene anything is possible at this time. Consider the choices they have down there: A capable and articulate incumbent senator who is also the pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Atlanta that was once run by Martin Luther King - or a former football star with the intelligence of a rancid bag of moldy doorknobs who is incapable of putting a coherent sentence together. You would think that this would be an easy one for Georgia, wouldn't you? Yeah, so would I. Unfortunately, it's not. At this moment in time, the pastor and the putz are running neck-and-neck in the polls. We should have just let the silly bastards secede in 1861.

If on Tuesday evening, we are talking about Senator-elect Herschel Walker, then, we all might as well start chanting, "Bye bye, America". This is not the way it's supposed to be in a place that some people still refer to as "the greatest country on earth". I cannot believe that we have fallen this low. I'm speechless. In the 1979 film, Where The Buffalo Roam, Bill Murray - as Hunter Thompson - said, "It still hasn't gotten weird enough for me". Trust me on this one, folks: it's gotten weird enough for me. I'm going back to bed.

No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen

Brian Tyler Cohen is one of the sharpest political commentators out there at present. Here is a link to catch his take on the train-wreck that is Herschel Walker:

Here is an interesting little film. It was filmed in January of 1914 at a go-cart race in Venice, California - totally improvised. Charlie Chaplin had never appeared in his tramp outfit prior to this - and no one in the crowd recognizes him. This was one-hundred and nine years ago. Can you beat that?

Michael Steele says Musk doing Twitter Files while arguing for free speech undermines ‘central tenets’ of … free speech.
