Worst nightmare: They will put someone like Barr on the Court before the election and

the election will be decided by the new court majority.

Tell me I'm crazy.

I think that the key to defeating Trump from this point on is herd immunity.

He clearly and unequivocally floated the concept last night at the ABC Town Meeting and it will now be his default position. By him embracing the concept, he can slither out of any responsibility for fiddling while people died over these last 6 months. He has nothing else except a vaccine that doesn't exist just like his health plan which also doesn't exist.

So, the Biden campaign has to run with this. People need to be told over and over again what herd immunity means to them and their loved ones.

If I was Joe Biden, I would tell the American people that by electing Trump to a second term they are signing the death warrants for over 2 million people and some of those warrants may have their and their loved ones' names on them.

"I'm flapping my lips as fast as I can." Didn't Trump say that tonight? If

he didn't, he should have.

New Englanders: how has your morning been so far?

Did the sun come up looking like a dull gold coin? At 46 degrees here in southwestern New Hampshire, it looked more like a humid July morning in the middle of a heat wave. Now the sky is milky white. I can't smell smoke but I've got to wonder if we're seeing the effects of the West Coast fires.

He told Woodward it was a deadly plague, he told us it was a hoax. That's

it in a nutshell. End of discussion.

I got my flu shot today because the CDC says I should. Who, in their right mind, is

going to believe Trump or the CDC now on a Covid-19 virus? The only reason I got the flu shot is because it has worked for me for years. I don't feel the same way about a Covid vaccine and I'm betting after today that a lot of other people feel the same way. So Trump, the monster, has created another monster which may well carry on the killing he began.

Pelosi talking about an intervention...

you only say that if you are talking about drug addicts and/or mentally disturbed people. She knows something is afoot.

My 4 no-mask people at the polls yesterday.

I was manning a desk at the entrance to the polls yesterday to make sure that people coming in to vote were wearing masks. We had all of 4 people who refused to wear a mask. One elderly lady said that she couldn't wear one so we took care of her outside with an absentee ballot. One older gentleman who protested and got very crusty but finally agreed to wear one just to vote. The 3rd guy refused the mask we offered him and asked if he could go back to his car to get his own. "Of course you can", we said. He came back in wearing a big black respirator that looked like something out of a third rate sci-fi film. There was dead silence when he walked into the voting area and then a bunch of muted giggles.

The fourth guy refused to wear a mask and told me that a mask did nothing and anyway, Covid-19 was a hoax. He refused the absentee ballot. He pointed to the polling area and growled "I have a constitutional right to go in there". I said (politely) "You have a constitutional right to vote but you do not have a constitutional right to make people sick. Here is your ballot, go outside and fill it out and bring it back to me." After all his huffing and puffing and growling, he did what he was told.

Lyndon Johnson and the Pig Story

I think the Goldberg/Atlantic story is true but if it isn't, there's this:

"This story may or may not be true, but legend has it that during one of Lyndon Johnson’s congressional campaigns he decided to spread a rumor that his opponent was a pig-fucker. LBJ’s campaign manager said, “Lyndon, you know he doesn’t do that!” Johnson replied, “I know. I just want to make him deny it.”

The problem with Trump is that he has not been able to stay sane long enough for his puppet

masters to gain control of this country. They made the mistake of picking an undisciplined imbecile who fried his brain over the years with a combination of drugs, women and money. His puppet masters may have thought that this is the man they wanted but I think the sane Americans who still make up the majority in this country will prove them wrong. When this is over and we kick Trump's fat, lazy ass to the curb, we need for our new House and Senate,,,and there will be a new House and Senate...to make sure that not one of his facilitators can serve in any governmental elected or appointed position ever again. This may sound harsh but we need some harsh actions to prevent this from ever happening again. No compromise, no forgiveness, no quarter given. Do you agree?
