  1. Sad reacts only.  Reportedly the Koch Brothers have their knickers in a twist:  after extensive polling by their own firms, they discover that H.R. 1 is quite popular with both the general public and conservatives.  

    Inside the Koch-Backed Effort to Block the Largest Election-Reform Bill in Half a Century

    On a leaked conference call, leaders of dark-money groups and an aide to Mitch McConnell expressed frustration with the popularity of the legislation—even among Republican voters.

     

  2. Jennifer Rubin included another mention of Boebert (who really is drawing attention). She focuses on the problem with “partisan primaries” by quoting

    The Unite America Institute, a nonpartisan organization that has spent much effort analyzing the “root causes, effects, and potential solutions to political polarization and partisanship….”

    “New polling data from Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, for example, found that the Republican primary electorate that voted for challenger Lauren Boebert over incumbent Rep. Scott Tipton was nearly twice as likely (60%) to identify as ‘very conservative’ compared to general election voters (25%).”

    [no mention of Colorado’s fairly unique system of selecting candidates.] If you want to read the whole thing, WAPO [$$] has it here.

  3. Turns out that boring competent leadership is a hard sell with the talk radio howler monkey crowd: 

    Dan Bongino: Biden a 'disaster for talk radio'

    Bongino, who is slated to take over the late Rush Limbaugh’s radio slot, also discussed the transition from reporting on former President Trump to Biden, calling the new coverage “a real chore.” 

     “I think Biden is a disaster for the country and his ideas are an atrocity. But he's boring. He's just boring.” 

      1. Dan-O should have been paying more attention to his business…it's hard to keep track of who's on first??

        Former Parler CEO says Dan Bongino owns no shares, got hustled by Rebekah Mercer

        Pro-Trump pundit, conservative media tycoon and self-proclaimed Parler investor Dan Bongino was apparently tricked into being promised shares of Parler by investor and conservative mega-donor Rebekah Mercer, according to former Parler CEO John Matze. This allegation is within a new lawsuit claiming that Bongino and Mercer used bullying and intimidation to take away Matze's shares in Parler when they ousted him.

  4. I’ve had to carry proof of vaccination whenever I’ve traveled to Africa. What in the holy hell is this dust-up by the Repugs on a vaccine passport?  Is the carnival barking at the southern border not sticking? Gawd, just  let them refuse and they can remain in their teeny, tiny, little world. Leaves more space for the rest of us. 

    1. Of course schools pre-K to post 12 will require proof of covid vaccination to enroll-eventually, when most people have been vaccinated. 
       

      You already can’t enroll kids in school without proof of MMR, DPT, and other vaccines. Some districts allow medical/religious exemptions-others do not. Families that don’t want to vaccinate kids may have to homeschool or remote schoolthem, or provide regular negative Covid tests. 
       

      I expect that most medical, public-facing, or first responder employers will also require proof of vaccination or frequent, regular negative  tests. Patients facing elective  or dental surgery already need to show a negative covid test to go forward. Professional athletes….probably others.
       

      All this is an inevitable part of “the new normal”. All the weeping, wailing, and political posturing and grievance-mongering in the world won’t change it.
