1- “What they discovered, largely through focus groups and polling, was even worse than expected…the Democratic Party’s entire brand was a wreck.”

Lol, they’ve been living in a cave (cont).…
2- “Voters couldn’t name anything that Democrats had done, except a few who said we passed the infrastructure bill,” the center-left group Third Way and its pollsters said in a report,”

Actually they managed to wreck the economy, destroy the border, & botch Afghanistan but Ok.
3- “..suburban Virginia focus groups, according to the report, “could not articulate what Democrats stand for. They could also not say what they are doing in Washington, besides fighting.”

Yeah, well, never let Democrats run anything.
4-“It isn’t just Biden’s cratering public approval ratings, inflation, or the precedent that the party in power typically loses seats in a president’s first midterm.”

Yeah, we know. It’s much worse.
5- “Just one year after Democrats kicked Donald Trump from the White House, it’s not obvious to many voters what Democrats are doing now that they’re in charge..”

They’re wrecking the country, actually.
6- “But the ominous development for Democrats is that the infrastructure and social spending policies they’re preparing to run on, despite generally polling favorably, show few signs of helping them at the ballot box.”

I don’t think they poll favorably in an honest poll.
7- “By most objective measures, Biden and Democrats in Washington are doing a lot..”

Yes, you idiots, they’re wrecking the country.
8- “Vaccines are widely available, including for children. Businesses are reopening and kids are back in school. But none of that appears to have helped Biden or the down-ticket Democrats..”

That’s because vaccines were oversold & then under-delivered.
9- “They (focus group participants) were reluctant to say he’s not up to the job, but they don’t feel like he’s getting it done right now.”

They were being nice.
10- “Infrastructure and spending on social programs, (Third Way’s Matt) Bennett said, could improve the party’s prospects next year “in concert with other things, like inflation coming under control,..”

Lol, keep telling yourselves that inflation will just go away.
11- “But in a sign of how precarious the foundation is for even that optimistic outlook, Bennett added, “Some of those are things the president and others can control, and some are not.”

Governing is hard. Who knew?

1- “Coronavirus cases are rising once again, disrupting classrooms, overwhelming hospitals and alarming public health officials — even in areas with high vaccination rates..”

Funny that (cont).…
2- “States across the country are also seeing a growing number of people with breakthrough cases end up in hospitals.”

Too bad nobody predicted this.
3- “The latest Covid surge is particularly concerning to health officials because holiday travel is expected to exacerbate the problem as it did last year..”

If only we had developed a vaccine.

1- ".. scientists are now saying the coronavirus may always be with us."

It's good that some Media finally realize this, but this article is otherwise creepy & dumb (excerpts folllow).…
2- This reads like vax mandates should be a forever things. GTFO with that.
3- They can hardly contain their excitement that more people will get drugs that we no idea what the long-term consequences are.

1- "Compulsory vaccination will fall under Austrian administrative rather than criminal law, according to Schallenberg, who said that lawyers have yet to hammer out the details.."

I guess they're still figuring out where the camps will be (cont).…
2- "There are too many among us who haven’t shown solidarity,” Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg said in Tyrol after meeting with provincial governors. “Raising the vaccination rate is the only way to break this vicious circle.”

Don't think about "solidarity" coment too long.
3- "(Chancellor) Schallenberg, who bemoaned fake news and anti-vaxxers, conceded that his public-health measures haven’t worked. Health Minister Wolfgang Mueckstein apologized for the decision that will send people into their fourth lockdown."

Back to what never worked.

1- Chronology of an NBA breakthrough case (cont).…
2- “The first four or five days were pretty tough. All the usual symptoms that I think people might get. Crazy muscle aches, sensitive skin, can’t smell, taste, crazy body muscle spasms, fatigue. Then just chest and head got hit pretty tough as well.”

This doesn’t sound “mild”.
3- “The Cavaliers are considered 100% fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, but the shots, like any vaccines, don't offer complete immunity.”

And of course the obligatory “We never said it would work” message.

1- Lmao. This is hilarious. The student run paper at University of California ( @dailycal ) is unloading on the all-vax'd football team for catching COVID.

You can't make this shit up. Priceless excerpts follow.…
2- "UC Berkeley was the first college to postpone a major college football game due to COVID-19 — campus’ approach of not requiring students to be regularly tested is not working."

Yes, test more & get more false positives and/or asymptomatic cases - that will fix it.
3- " ..(per team Spox) the team had been following health guidelines. According to the Berkeley Public Health Department, however, the program regularly failed to abide by public health measures, including testing, staying home when sick and wearing masks indoors."

Wear masks!

1- “Dr. Alex Huffman .. told Denver7 Monday that while vaccines are a really important strategy in fighting the pandemic, they are not enough at this point to curb the spread of the disease..”

Welp, there’s the quiet part out loud (cont).…
2- Huffman: “There's no question that getting a vaccination and increasing the percentage of people in the state that are vaccinated is a really, really important piece of the puzzle, but we can't vaccinate our way out of the pandemic.”

Gosh, if only others had said this.
3- Lol, paraphrasing:


Huffman: “Yes”
