You decide what it means

 Did you know that Trump "in many ways" resembles Theodor Herzl?  That's what Miriam Adelson asserted as she awarded him the Theodor Herzl Medallion of the Zionist Organization of America.  Trump responded by attacking the seventy-five percent of American Jews who still refuse to support the party of Kevin Stitt, who celebrated his re-election as governor by dedicating "every square inch" of Oklahoma to his god "in the name of Jesus."  You know, the party of Doug Mastriano, who says government and Christianity "should be linked."  The party of Marjorie Taylor Greene and "Christian nationalism."  What's not to like?  Oh, yes, he remembered to add that despite "millions" of votes, the 2020 election was stolen.

In news of slightly less noisy Christians, three students were shot and killed last night at the University of Virginia.  Glenn Youngkin sends prayers.

While the "serious" Republicans figure out how to scrape him off, Lara Trump says there's "never been a better time" for Eric's daddy to come back.  Many people are coming up to her, with tears in their eyes, well, you know the rest.  Brace for the Big Announcement tomorrow.  Will be wild.

January 6 insurrectionist Mo Brooks, however, won't be there.  He's now calling Trump "dishonest, disloyal, incompetent, crude and a lot of other things that alienate so many independents and Republicans."  So Mo's no longer one of the 147 certification objectors?

Lost amid the excitement:  Proposition FF passed in Colorado, raising taxes on the wealthiest in order to provide free lunches to all public school students.  California already does this.

Stop me before I incriminate myself again...It seems that Trump ordered extensive IRS audits of James Comey, Andrew McCabe and possibly others he was peeved at that day, just as Barack Obama didn't.  I am -- nonplussed.  

The Wagner Group, Russia's equivalent of Blackwater, bailed out a prisoner named Yevgeny Nuzhin and "recruited" him for the war in Ukraine.  (Yes, the official Russian army is a bad joke.)  While there, Nuzhin gave a series of interviews denouncing the war and offering to defect to Ukraine.  Unfortunately Nuzhin was sent back to Russia in a recent prisoner exchange and now his family has watched video of him being killed with a sledgehammer to the head.  Not funny anymore, Republicans?

Study this photo of former Tory PMs on Remembrance Sunday and see if you can guess what's wrong with Britain.

The Majestic Princess cruise ship returned to Sydney from New Zealand with 4,000 passengers, 800 of whom tested positive for covid.  A veritable peach tree dish.

Today in "Let's You and Him Fight" Ted Cruz went after Mitch McConnell for failing to deliver a majority in the Senate.  ("I am so pissed off I can't even see straight!")  If he's thinking of challenging the Turtle for minority leadership, Ted should recall what Al Franken wrote about him in 2017:  "I like Ted Cruz more than most of my other colleagues like Ted Cruz.  And I hate Ted Cruz."

Arizona again.  Alternately praying and threatening, election deniers are demanding "the military" take over the (s)election of a governor and complaining that January 6 rioters are political prisoners who are being "tortured in cages."   It hasn't even been a week, people.  They're still counting.  Your rules, remember?  No votes counted before Electron Day?

In a recent focus group convened by Frank Luntz, Republican voters said they support Ron DeSantis because Trump is "way too old."  I hope someone showed it to Joe Biden.

Stunning artwork. Is that a real McNaughton?

Getting the Hertzl award is like getting the Hitler award - a celebration of racist mass murder and ethnic cleansing.
