Covid Kim is magic in the way that many 4 year olds are magic. If you have a problem, you can ignore it and it will go away. This is a formula that has been tried with varying degrees of success by Republicans. Perhaps the closest parallel to this was Ronald Reagan’s decision to ignore AIDS. How did that work out?
We could tell by the success in the results that Covid Kim had been putting a lot of time in on this one:
The announcement came about two weeks after the state’s infection rate reached an all-time peak. The average number of confirmed cases each day has been declining since but remains significantly higher than it has been for most of the pandemic.
Well maybe not. But ignoring problems on the infrastructure has really worked for Republicans – or maybe not. Good luck on this one. The main purpose for this strategy is that with an election coming up in November, Covid Kim needs some time to hope that Iowans will forget her disastrous mismanagement of Covid in Iowa.
