    • Schools and Covid
      Back in August, when it became clear that schools were going to reopen in countries like the US and Britain that did not have Covid under control, and which never would control Covid until there is a vaccine, I wrote an article warning against going back to school while Covid was out of control.

Strzok Me, Strzok Me. STRZOK! STRZOK!

Peter Strzok is a better man than I am. WTF was that yesterday anyway?? The Republicans seem really desperate to pin all of Trump’s crimes, and there must be many, on one guy at the FBI who had the audacity to text what half of Trump’s own administration has been saying for more than a year.

Trump is a f****** idiot.

The Republicans were rude, dismissive, they interrupted, framed questions and statements to create the worst possible image of Strzok and then refused to allow him to correct the record.

But Strzok drew blood anyway. He cheerfully admitted to every text he wrote about Trump’s f****** idiocy. That didn’t work out like they planned. Well, no one ever said that Republicans were rocket surgeons.

Whatever Trump has done, it’s all Strzok’s fault.

But I think the thing that will stick with the Republican base is that the Russians were doing really nasty s*** to our election because they are bad guys. What does that have to do with Trump??

And the only reason this might work is because Robert Mueller’s investigation is notoriously leak proof. It’s also above reproach. It’s fortified with a impenetrable armor plating. No one knows what Mueller and his team knows and they ain’t saying.

But I’ll bet the Republicans do. I’ll bet they know exactly what Trump did with the Russians. And probably a good number of Congressional Republicans and their party apparatus as well. It will all come out when Mueller is finished and I suspect that his final report is going to be overwhelming and catastrophic for the GOP.

All they can do is flail and shriek like the flaming swamp monsters they are and beat up on the one guy who had the nerve to text what he thought about fearless leader and was delighted to hear those texts read into the Congressional record.

Cue the plum smuggler:
