Remember that big LED manufacturing plant Foxconn was supposed to build in Wisconsin after securing $3 billion in corporate welfare? Well, three years later, there's no factory and no jobs, and it sure doesn't seem likely there ever will be. The folks who did work there for a time expressed confusion (and worse!) about exactly what they were doing there; the answer, of course, is that they were all props for a big corporation to suck out billions in taxpayer money. Thus another reminder that former Gov. Scott Walker was always about the corporate welfare and nothing else.
We learn "Why These Voters Rejected Hillary Clinton but Are Backing Joe Biden": because he has a penis! I mean, voters who made those choices won't say that, and I wouldn't even posit that they're so sexist they'd notice it in other people, but yeah, pretty much -- ZOMG TEH 20 YEARZ OFZ TEH ATTACKZ!!!! I don't buy, because Republicans act like all their opponents are the anti-Christ anymore. I've heard some of our President's ads attacking Hillary Clinton, and all I can say is you just can't get her name out your mouth, can you?
Our President is going on a regulation-killing spree just in case he loses in November. A lot of these regulatory rollbacks will die in court, like most of his other ones, since he's doing them even faster than usual, but you can't necessarily tell when that'll be (or which ones). And if Democrats sweep back into power in the Senate and the White House, will they use the "resolution of disapproval" process to repeal these regulatory abuses -- or will they prize "civility" over fighting for the American people? We know what the pattern's been.
Upon learning that Steve Bannon told an Australian newspaper that if our President loses in 2020, he'll be back in 2024, my immediate response is well, no shit, Sherlock. But I wouldn't retort to this statement with sure, he will, if he's not in jail! People like our President generally don't wind up in jail, not even when they punch a cop. (As an aside, Mr. Bannon is sure working this our-President-can't-lose angle pretty vigorously, which may explain why no one asked his opinion about anything before 2016.)
Finally, when we hear that the writer of that "smoking gun" New York Post article about Hunter Biden's laptop didn't want his byline on it and also that Fox News passed on the story first apparently because they didn't quite believe it, we must remember that the Rupert Murdoch-owned News Corporation owns both the Post and Fox News, so more likely Mr. Murdoch or someone else high-up decided which news organ would take the hit, so as to perpetuate the absurd notion that Republicans disagree with each other a lot about important stuff. Remember, folks: it's not just drama, it's bad drama.
