Rally round the Magic R y'all

Pay no attention to our deadly incompetence.

If you complain or try to make things better you are not a real Republican and must be cast out of the tribe.
 
2021-09-01 3:28:53 PM  
It's not "incompetence."

He's "focused on alternate objectives."

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is facing resistance from a growing number of Republican-leaning counties over his handling of the recent surge in COVID-19 infections, in a rare bipartisan rebuke of the governor's laissez-faire approach to the pandemic.

Laissez-faire would be an improvement.  He's actively making it worse.

Call me when they won't vote for or pay bribes the farking R's again. The stupid sons of biatches will vote for this again the day after they bury their parents.

We haven't even begun to fully plague as a country yet. Kids here go back to school next Tuesday.
 
2021-09-01 4:38:36 PM  
He'll never face consequences for his actions. Hes wealthy and white. 

No, Losing your job as Governor is not facing consequences. 

Whats worse, is this shiat-heel is the next GOP Candidate for the Presidency, that is if all the dick sucking and ass kissing Trump pays off...

He wants the Nod from Donald so bad... but Donald has to run again, his Ego won't let him NOT run.

If these GOP officials are not going to follow Ron DeSantis's policy of pretending that COVID-19 does not exist then they should resign. Defying the governor's orders just to prevent unnecessary deaths is unacceptable.

His ONLY pitch to the voters of Florida when he campaigned for the seat was that he really, REALLY loved Donald Trump. That was it. And the voters elected him. This is what they wanted, apparently.

I'm pleased and happy to repeat the news that we have, in fact, caught and killed a large predator that supposedly injured some bathers. But, as you see, it's a beautiful day, the beaches are open and people are having a wonderful time.

Pffft... What are they going to do, vote for some Dumbocrat who will inflict untold socialisms upon the great state of Florida? Anyone who thinks DeSantis will pay a price at the polls in 2022 (or 2024) over his mishandling of Covid is in for a big letdown.

Oh he may lose 2022, just from lack of turnout, His real shot is The 2024 Presidency, that is, if Trump lets him.

At this point it would take a huge bribe and promises of protection.

Psst Florida,

How much governing do you think you're gonna get out of Deathsantis between November 2022 and 2024 if he's running for President?  If you survive, show him the door in 22 and let him tour the country on his own dime.

Yeah, his overall policy is "schools are allowed to opt out of safety precautions and to ensure that they don't look bad in comparison, no one else is allowed to implement them either. We have to protect the self-esteem of the deep Red counties!"

I do wonder this about DeathSantis, Abbott, Cruz, Hawley and all these other assholes that clearly want to run by being a weak-ass impersonation of Trump.

If you voted to not certify the election, you clearly supported making Trump basically a dictator, so how the fark do you intend to run against him for the nomination?

I almost do want Trump to run because the infighting will be an absolute goddamn shiatshow.

That's weird, because if you look at covid deaths Florida's have dropped dramatically over the last couple weeks.

Desantis proves farkers wrong, yet again

The Hill is like McDonald's, only for "journalism," and here's just one reason why:

FTFA: The governor has largely gone with a hands-off approach to the outbreak. He backed legislation earlier this year effectively preempting local governments from imposing their own pandemic restrictions.

If I wanted The Hill to have my email address (I don't), I'd send them an email to ask how in the fark "backing" legislation to make it illegal for a local government to impose a restriction intended to slow the spread of a disease is "hands off"? What the fark do they think 'hands off" means?

I know clicking on The Hill is a bad thing and I deserve to be frustrated, but I just had to see if there actually is a "backlash." Based on The Hill's understand of the phrase "hands off" I'm forced to conclude there is no actual backlash and Republicans in Floriduh continue to sniff and tenderly stroke Governor DeathSentence's taint, as usual.

cough, cough

Florida changed its COVID-19 data, creating an 'artificial decline' in recent deaths

The cycle of angry-frightened-hopeful is exhausting. It's like being carried down a wide, fast moving river full of churning waters and jagged rocks with splintered logs hidden among them. There are moments when it feels as if  we're being carried toward the rivers edge, almost even finding our footing in a shallow jetty, only to be hit with a surge of shiat-filled water and dragged back into the rage and confusion while straining against muscle fatigue and gasping for air.

I realize that that's part of the strategy. To wear us down with a constant bombardment of inexplicable cruelty and a fire hose of misinformation. But some days, I sincerely wish that a giant comet would come streaking out of deep space at light speed and obliterate us all. That way, at least I'd have that moment of satisfaction that the pricks pushing fossil fuels and deriding education while the rubes they've hired to do their dirty work for them stare stupidly up at the sky as the Earth is knocked from the safety of our orbit and burning to ash in an instant.

/Would also settle for being knocked out of the sun's orbit and instantly frozen.

Ron DeSantis won his last election by 32,463 votes. COVID has killed approximately 44,500 Floridians so far. Florida's COVID death rate is currently higher than any of the previous waves by at least 50%. The majority of the people dying right now are unvaccinated.

There is a very real chance that by the 2022 election Ron DeSantis will have literally killed off his margin of victory, in addition to pissing of a lot of people. I say this not as political opportunism or gloating, just an observation of what's happening. (It's obviously not as simple as saying only Republican voters are dying or unvaccinated, of course.)

This probably means we'll see him lean ever harder into voter suppression.
