Politics and otehr nightmares

Courage is contagious

Safe harbor

Huh:

There are over 200 "sanctuary cities" in 32 states that give safe harbor to illegal immigrants, even violent ones with felony records like the man accused of killing a San Francisco woman last week, according to a new analysis.

Seems like a redundant effort. Hasn't this pretty much become a sancuary country?

It's too late, baby, now

If you want to be an effective global warming climate change alarmist, you have to walk a fine line. You have to predict dire, truly scary cataclysms that are just around the corner, which can only be averted by massive, drastic action right now. You can't undersell the danger, because then people won't put up with all the government control you're proposing.

Poll trouble

Ruh-roh:

There’s a new poll out that shows that the political problems created for Mike Pence by his handling of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act linger.

The poll shows that only 32 percent of Indiana voters believe that Pence deserves re-election. 54 percent believe it’s time to give a new person a chance to do a better job.

Trump towers

Dismissing Donald Trump as a buffoon would be a mistake:

1.  Donald Trump has sufficient personal assets to outspend every single presidential candidate on both sides.

2.  Donald Trump  because of his funds has the ability to hire enough people to make sure he is on EVERY primary ballot before the convention.

Cogito ego sum

This just in

A lot of people in the press are grumbling over the state's intrusion on their turf after Gov. Mike Pence announced that the state its creating its own news agency. Called "Just IN," the website "will feature stories written by state press secretaries and is being overseen by a former Indianapolis Star reporter, Bill McCleery" and stories there will "range from straightforward news to lighter features, including personality profiles."

All together now: Huh?

OK, we shouldn't really be in panic mode over Eboal -- I get that. It's not that easily spread, and our health care workers are the best in the world and blah, blah, blah. But surely we're right to be a little worried when our public officials treat us to one stunning display of incompetence and incoherence and another. The insults to our collective intelligence are just getting more and more galling:

RIP, Ben Bradlee
