Sunday Funday: A New Spring Edition

Side note: It looks like newly anointed 2nd district Iowa Congress Member Mariannette Miller-Meeks is more than ready to join her republican colleagues in the distraction game. Her work for our district will be minimal. Her work in dividing the country will be her focus.

Do you remember what it was like a year ago this week? Specifically I do not. Generally about all I can remember is spending most days worrying about someone or something related to the corona virus. Would I bring it back into the house and infect my disabled wife? What about our kids, nieces, nephews and friends? 

Our national leaders were doing all they could to make things worse. Iowa’s leadership seemed to only care about how much meat was processed, and cared not at all what the cost was in human life. Around April 24th our insane president suggested that people drink bleach to combat their corona virus.

So there we were a year ago, with the country in desperate straits and mostly idiots in leadership roles. I would love to think Americans learned something from what happened, but the election indicated only some learned the major lesson of the pandemic. Leadership roles are not places for idiots. Biden is such  great change!

The lesson learned by Republicans was that despite how much they were already cheating, it wasn’t nearly enough.
