I thought the reconciliation is that whenever Trump is praising the vaccine then it's really a body double doing that.

Ironically a parliamentary system is what we might be headed to in practice.

The delegates elect a president, the general election is really just a suggestion.  It's easy to picture republican controlled states just saying fuck it, we're appointing delegates that vote for our guy no matter what. 

As far as I can tell it would be completely constitutional to do so.

I was wild about Trump 2024, but honestly I think I'm a Tucker 2024 guy now. I seriously can't wait.

The fact that Trump hasn't put out that he's campaigning, tells me that he really doesn't want to.  Unless what he has planned falls through.  Which is might.

I mean, he has the fans.  And once his new platform is up, he'll have the likes on a twitter like system.
So really, why would he be president again?

I would expect him to lay low until after the midterms to see what happens.

I'm sorry you're feeling poorly, Thork.  But those Herman Cain Awards are not a thing someone can receive without considerable sacrifice.

Thoughts.

I've never seen this show and I don't know if you're imitating this character or just doing your own take on it but a few things stand out.

I think you're talking just a little too quick.  It makes you sound a bit nervous.

Your pauses are a little too long IMO.

The last scene where Lois calls you out, I feel that your character is supposed to be irritated or angry or something but I'm not quite seeing much of a reaction.

Good projection.

Actually ballot harvesting is illegal in many areas.

Sometimes. But if it is then who cares? As long as they're citizens of voting age then I don't see a problem.

Being illegal in many areas seems like a problem to me.

You're in favor of making voting selectively illegal?

I am merely pointing out that Dr. Paul is describing something that many localities have deemed to be immoral and have declared illegal.

He believes that voting should be, in some instances that he determines, immoral and illegal?

Is this doctor Rand a doctor of autocracy?

One big factor that I don't think we know yet is exactly how Lethal Omicron is. If it's substantially less deadly then it could almost be a good thing. Like cowpox running rampant through a smallpox outbreak.

Are we sure he wasn't being sarcastic? It sounds like something the onion would write?

I doubt that Jill was embarrassed by Joe's response so much as she was by the guy saying the dumb phrase to begin with, but there's really no way to say for sure. In related news, Jared Schmeck is now making his tentative first steps towards a right-wing media/MAGA career:

Depending on how he plays this, we may see him at CPAC in the coming months and years, or maybe even in Congress. Because these are the kind of people that the GOP promotes nowadays.

Yep.  If Trump isn't running then I think we're looking at a Rittenhouse/Schmeck 2024 ticket.

They'll be running on very important policies.  Like... umm... I don't know.  Crank calls and defending dumpsters.

Conservatives are unusually triggered over this. Even the guy who made this dumb remark to Biden is trying to pull it back. I think Biden made the best possible response to make them look like asses.
Maybe you should call Joe, tell him to divorce his dumb ass wife, marry him, and when he pulls another response like this from his ass (you know, perhaps when he is participating in another press conference he isn't supposed to be having), you will be sitting right beside him, smiling gleefully at his impromptu response, instead of hanging your head in shame and embarrassment like that idiot Jill.

It's just that there seems to be a lot of people who are reacting very emotionally that Biden just sort of brushed this off.

I'm not invested in any sort of goal of "owning" a particular group.  There's a lot of legitimate criticism that can be leveled at Biden but instead of doing any of that he just repeated some juvenile chant that imbeciles like to chant at NASCAR. 

I think this Jared Schmeck was expecting Biden to have a strong reaction over it and when he more or less ignored it then it just made Jared embarrassed.  And I think a lot of conservatives are feeling that embarrassment too.

Your orange God tells you to get the damn vaccine. Are we done here Tom?

Then there's this. Exactly how unloved was trump as a child? Maybe if his dad gave him one hug in his entire life then us history would have unfolded differently.

Don't worry. When the GOP takes the house next year and appoints mtg as the speaker then there'll be wall to wall impeachments for the next 2 years.

The house will most likely not pass this.  At least not by any veto proof majority.  It's just interesting that two Democrats defected in the senate.

I don't like seeing people die even if they're on a different political party.  I have a lot of family members and coworkers who are republican. 

Then again Darwin is a son of a bitch sometimes and there's only so much we can do to keep these people from earning their Herman Cain Award.
