...and having run a reelection bid that won a landslide in a previously evenly-split state… I think if you add all of that up, you find a guy who is probably not dumb.

I’m not saying all of these past experiences are surefire, 100 percent indicators of a lot of brain cells at work. Maybe you’ve met some people who went to Harvard, who you wouldn’t trust to cross the street by themselves.

But if a person is successful in one chapter of life after another, they’ve probably got something going on upstairs.

But in some people’s minds, conceding that DeSantis is not dumb would bring their entire political worldview crashing down. All Republicans must be dumb, just as they must always be insane, and always be greedy and selfish, and so on.

Holy @#%, how is this story about a bunch of loons, training 15 kids to commit school shootings and starving them, not the biggest story right now?

The evidence that COVID-19 came from either the Wuhan Institute of Virology or the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control and NOT the Huanan Seafood Market is circumstantial. But is a growing stack of circumstantial evidence.

Today marks three months since Ralph Northam’s yearbook came to light. We never got an explanation about who was in the picture. We never got an explanation about how this ended up on his yearbook page, or his nickname “Coonman.” And he’s still governor.

On the campaign trail, Sinema said she wouldn't support Chuck Schumer as party leader in the Senate. Today, she reversed herself. Arizona voters, you're such a bunch of gullible suckers.

Andrew Yang, the man with a million ideas literally got three minutes over two hours to pitch his ideas. This is an egregious mismanagement of the debate by MSNBC, and the Yang Gang has every right to be livid over this.

Bernie Sanders attended a 1985 rally thrown by the leftist Sandinista government in Nicaragua where half a million people chanted, ‘Here, there, everywhere, the Yankee will die!’
