      1. Are you suggesting that Tina Peters might be in that mobile home in the Iraqi desert that Faux News was fixated on from 2002 to 2008 and that they kept saying was a suspected mobile WMD lab?

    1. And yet, as I noted yesterday, we don't know if John Hickenlooper will support a filibuster carve out to remove GOP voter nullification laws.  For example, the GOP in Georgia are in the process of replacing elections officials in Fulton County (Atlanta) with GOP selected "officials" to count the votes. 

      Michael Bennet is on board, but we don't know whether Hickenlooper will stop this existential threat to our democracy.  Everyone reading this needs to contact Hickenlooper now.

      When your children and grandchildren ask what you did to protect our democracy, I guess your response will be that you bravely highlighted "potato day".

        1. Can I pull a reverse-Alva here and opine that we’d have no question at this point where Andrew would stand? It’s a goose-gander thing. 

          1. I know you mean, couldda, wouldda, shouldda butterfly effect Andrew. 

            The same could be said for numerous candidates to various offices who did not win.

            The best question for Andrew is why did he not win?

            Other good questions include, will he run again? What would have to happen for him to win? 

    1. Putting aside what De Satan, Abbott and the Gnome would probably consider to be the minor detail of human suffering from the symptoms, there is the economic cost associated with treating people with an expensive treatment regime versus inoculating them with a relatively cheap vaccine.

      If only Pfizer had the good sense to donate generously to GOP politicians, they might be hawking the vaccine instead of the Regeneron. 

      1. There's definitely good money in drugs

        DeSantis Top Donor Invests in COVID Drug Governor Promotes

        Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has been criticized for efforts to ban mask mandates and vaccine passports.

        Citadel, a Chicago-based hedge fund, has $15.9 million in shares of Regeneron Pharmaceutical Inc., according to filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Citadel CEO Ken Griffin has donated $10.75 million to a political committee that supports DeSantis — $5.75 million in 2018 and $5 million last April

      2. "economic cost" 

        I think you mean top line revenue and other intangible returns to shareholders. 

        As for hawking the prevention or the cure, for most of these guys the answer is both. But the margin wins. 

    1. It won't matter. In today's world, that can simply suspend belief or apply their pretzel logic, or both, to reconcile the use of cells from aborted feti with their belief that Regeneron is sent from heaven.

      Remember Dr. Scott DesJarlais, the pro-birth Republican US Representative from Tennessee who pressured both his wife and his mistress to terminate their pregnancies? Keeps getting re-elected in a ruby red district.
