Tweet Of The Moment — Jan. 6 Insurrection/Riot Not A ‘Comedy’

June 8, 2022

In lieu of the Jan. 6 committee hearings starting tomorrow night, Jason Alexander has a way-good take on the entire scheme of things — and of the tweet of the moment:

After the description of the whole freaky process of T-Rump and the insurrection, the best line: ‘“If there’s comedy in there it certainly doesn’t write itself.”

Yet there’s hope in the committee’s event — as concluded by Molly Jong-Fast at The Atlantic this morning:

But I believe it’s still possible to change hearts and minds, and the January 6 committee—unlike former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who struggled through the 2019 congressional hearings about his report on Trump—understands sound bites, some of which might even penetrate the right-wing echo chamber.
It’s crucial that the mainstream media not call a strike before the committee is done and the information it presents is allowed to permeate a few news cycles. Republicans will cast the committee as slanted, but a pro-democracy bias is — or should be — anything but partisan.

I really, really hope so and hope the hearings will shift the view and give this country the last chance to hold on to democracy a little while longer. These midterms are super serious.

And off the subject, but still within the Democrat/Republican plot — more conservatives are dying than progressives, due to being mean, crazy-ass idiots.
As reported yesterday via EurekAlert on a new study about the continuing fighting by Republicans to let themselves die:

Between 2001 and 2019, mortality rates decreased by 22-percent in Democratic counties (from 850 to 664 per 100,000), but by only half that (11-percent) in Republican counties (from 867 to 771 per 100,000).
Consequently, the gap in mortality rates between Republican and Democratic counties jumped by 541-percent, from 16.7 per 100,000 in 2001 to 107 deaths per 100,000 in 2019.

How does one really fight an adversary whose intent on killing itself through hate and self-centered cruelty?

Just got to make it, as once again here we are…
