      1. I saw it on the Post's website last night, so I knew it'd be in today's paper. Of course, they dropped it below the fold and the coverage of the anniversary of the STEM school shooting, with the big splashy photos. 

    1. Mr. Bremer is one of the few Republicans around with integrity. Good on him for pushing back on Bucko. As far as why it isn’t a bigger story, how many Republicans want to air their dirty unmentionables in public, after the OutHouse scandal
       

      DonnaJoann Windholz, you’re not a fan of Chairman Buck’s- any insights to offer?

  1. Fucker’s gonna . . . um, you know . . . 

    Azar faulted workers’ ‘home and social’ conditions for meatpacking outbreaks
    [On a call with members of Congress, health secretary defended conditions inside the meat plants, three participants say.]

    The country’s top health official downplayed concerns over the public health conditions inside meatpacking plants, suggesting on a call with lawmakers that workers were more likely to catch coronavirus based on their social interactions and group living situations, three participants said.

    HHS Secretary Alex Azar told a bipartisan group that he believed infected employees were bringing the virus into processing plants where a rash of cases have killed at least 20 workers and forced nearly two-dozen plants to close, according to three people on the April 28 call.

    Those infections, he said, were linked more to the “home and social” aspects of workers’ lives rather than the conditions inside the facilities, alarming some on the call who interpreted his remarks as faulting workers for the outbreaks, the people said.

    That’s America’s Health and Human Services Secretary, ladies and gentlemen, . . .

    Upon being informed by reporters of Azar’s unsupported and inflammatory comments, President Ttump responded, “Why do you people keep sending me essential workers from shithole countries? … We should have more essential workers from Norway.”

  2. A Caribou Barbie sighting ….. in Texas. 

    Sarah Palin visited Dallas salon at center of controversy while the owner served jail time for refusing to close

    Luther's case became a rallying cry for "Open Texas" protesters who oppose shutdowns even as the coronavirus continues to spread rapidly in the state. Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick — who previously made headlines for saying grandparents like him would be willing to die to preserve the economy for future generations — paid Luther's $7,000 fine.

    Palin's visit came the same day that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton called for the "immediate release" of Luther from jail.  

          1. Amash might well reconsider running if Palin became the VP from the party.  She vehemently supported Trump (remember that endorsement speech?). 

            And the Libertarians really need SOMEONE who has been a part of the party for more than 6 weeks, imho.

  3. Lorena Garcia’s campaign for Senate ended tonight in an emotional phone conference, after the Federal Court denied her appeal of the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision. She will not be on the Colorado Senate ballot, which will be certified tonight. Lorena declined to endorse either of the two remaining candidates, leaving it up to supporters to make their own decisions.

    As for Lorena, true to form, she is fighting on – encouraging people who want a more democratic  ballot access process to encourage your state legislators to explore options to make that happen. 
     

    She is also encouraging people to attend  a
    virtual candlelight vigil for Ahmaud Arbery, the young jogger who was gunned down by racists in Georgia last February. His killers have Finally, three months later, been arrested and charged. It remains to be seen whether they will get away with murder.
