      Yeah Newsome couldn't get the vaccines because Trump admin had it out for the democrat run states. GTFO with your Trump worship.

      Biden's been in office 21 days - the supply chain doesn't magically all get diverted to California

      I think Newsome is great - he's not a doofus like Abbott or Noem or Kemp or Ducey

        Explain the French Laundry bullshit? Newsome is a moron just like like Abbot, Noem, Kemp, and Ducey.

          Kind of an interesting insight into the current GOP. Culture wars are the primary thing driving them today. Not building infrastructure or constituent services. Culture wars.

          How else do you get young white men to sign up to the modern GOP? It sure isn't by saying "we'll cut taxes on the rich and allow social security to fail". It isn't "we'll cut funding to schools so your tuition goes up".

          It's "we'll make you feel special".

          Yep. They’re right. This has been my observation as well. There are a few groups to which the Republican Party has been trying to endear itself, in the wake of a general hemorrhaging of young voters. You have your anti-woke “Cancel-Cancel-Culture” crowd, who are just as annoying as the woke crowd. In my experience, these are usually younger types who started out as woke-ass progressives, but shifted to the right for whatever reason.

          And, you have fringe-right groups like the Proud Boys... which, let’s just call them what they and those like them are: White Supremacist groups. It’s not that the GOP is actively supporting these groups. But, they’re not NOT supporting them, either. They realize that these groups vote Republican, and they’re okay with it... at the very least.

          The “in the know” guys within the GOP know they need to (continue to?) tap into the latent anger, bubbling up from within the ranks of the younger generations. Unfortunately, that means appealing to some of the very worst folks out there. Incels. Racists. Militia types. Conspiracy theorists. Odinistic Shamanism. All of it, chock full of impotent middle class white boy rage.

            That's actually really common for fascists. They start out as socialists already opposed to the government. Then they realize that, due to ideology, their opponents are much quicker to use force and how effective that force can be. So instead, they reshape their own ideology around the use of force and the cult of action. Mussolini is a good example here.

              Ted Cruz left his dog to die, threw his kids under the bus and got caught lying by a group text.

                “What’s happening in Texas is unacceptable,” Mr. Cruz told a television crew at the Cancún airport.

                Clearly, Cruz needed to escape in order to install an army of generators and use up some of that Texas Tea, heating his massive house to a balmy 78°.

                “As it became a bigger and bigger firestorm [and, as I realized just how bad the optics were], it became all the more compelling [and necessary] that I needed to come back,” he added.

                This one may come back to bite him. Cruz — now unofficially known as #FledCruz or #FlyinTed — will predictably attempt to sell himself as a Texan, with Texan values and who loves his constituency. That might be a hard sell.

                  What’s even more astounding, is that Ted Cruz could’ve turned this into a political windfall. All he had to do, was send his family down to Cancún, and stay there himself on the front lines. On camera, helping out his fellow citizens. He would get all the free, positive publicity that any politician ever dreamed of. But... that’s just not Ted Cruz.

                    When things went to hell in his native country, Ted fled the country to help his family in a foreign land.

                      Did something happen to Canada?

                        Yep. Like... I would think Flyin’ Ted would get that this wasn’t going to end well. Now, it just looks like he caved to pressure in order to do the right thing, which we also know he had no intention of doing.

                                Newsome instituted a stay at home orders and was spotted by someone who should be staying at home at a restaurant that should be observing no indoor or outdoor dining.


                                So tell me is he the only one at fault?
