Borowitz strikes again!

TALLAHASSEE (The Borowitz Report)—In what many have seen as a legal setback for Governor Ron DeSantis, a Florida judge has ruled that the state’s residents have a right to a smarter governor.

“The Constitution does not grant you the right to yell ‘fire’ in a crowded theatre,” Judge John Cooper, of Florida’s Second Circuit, wrote. “Similarly, it does not grant you the right to govern a state like a blithering idiot.”

“The Declaration of Independence enshrines the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” Cooper continued. “All three are imperiled in a state run by a blazing bonehead.”

DeSantis swiftly blasted the ruling, stating that it would have a “chilling effect” on ignorant politicians becoming the governor of Florida going forward.

DeSantis’s statement drew strong support from two of his state’s most prominent political luminaries, the former governors Rick Scott and Jeb Bush.

This TLP video is bone-chilling!

Glad they're focusing the blame on (mo)Ron DeathSentence!

It's about time...!

The Lincoln Project has produced an ad focused on the Florida Goobernor's homicidal behavior and speech. Finally!

Man who made fun of COVID dies of virus

From KTLA-TV, Los Angeles (posted July 24):
A man who mocked COVID-19 vaccinations died this week at a Los Angeles-area hospital after contracting the virus.

Stephen Harmon was 34.

Harmon died on Wednesday at Corona Regional Medical Center, about an hour’s drive east of Los Angeles.

Three days before his death, Harmon tweeted: “If you don’t have faith that God can heal me over your stupid ventilator then keep the Hell out of my ICU room, there’s no room in here for fear or lack of faith!”

Before his hospitalization, Harmon had made fun of vaccination efforts on social media.

“I got 99 problems but a vax ain’t one,” he said in a tweet last month.

On July 8, he posted: “Biden’s door to door vaccine ‘surveyors’ really should be called JaCovid Witnesses...”

As tempting is to say "Serves you right!" or some other snide comment, I have to wonder how many other people were exposed to the virus by HARMon. How many patients had to cling to life waiting for a bed in that ICU, or for access to a respirator? And how are the hospital staff coping with this latest wave?

May the Farce be with you! Introducing: Karen the Stormtrooper

If you're done with watching all the Sunday TV talking heads, and the headlines are getting you down, check this out:

This includes three short "episodes" of how a Karen would have done long ago in a galaxy far, far away. SPOILER ALERT: Not so very well.

Which one is your favorite?

Talk about burying the lede!

Rachel recounts an anecdote that was at then tail-end of a NYT story on GQP leader mccarthy: he abandoned one of his fellow representatives to fend for himself with just a civil war sword and a private bathroom for protection against the rampaging mob. That anecdote should haunt mccarthy for the rest of his life.

Voter re-registration in Florida?

Today, the USPS letter-carrier delivered a letter from the Duval County Supervisor of Elections, telling me that because my signature on record with the State of Florida is over 10-years-old, I'd need to complete an (enclosed) update form. Otherwise,
This could pose a problem if you vote by mail in the future.

The form and letter look legitimate, but I wonder if others have received similar snail-mail. I think I'll hand-deliver it to the Supervisor of Elections office next week, once they re-assure me that this is not a scam.

I'll reserve judgment on whether or not there is an ulterior motive behind this. Could this be a move dis-enfranchising voters who prefer mail ballots? Could we garner enough votes to unseat Gaetz, Rubio, Scott, and my so-called Representative John "Barney Fife" Rutherford?
