The Campaign For DA


Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • That's a special Random Thought Girl. (And, yes, for those who are unaware, that's the First Lady -- for 3.5 more hours.) 
  • Texas hospitalizations: +70.

  • Last night: Normalcy is at the gate.

  • 6:35 CST. Good morning. 

  • 6:58 CST:

  • 7:14 CST:

  • 7:15 CST:

  • 7:18 CST:

  • A few remarks at Andrews Air Force base (where he mentioned "Space Force" and then walked to Air Force One with "Macho Man" playing -- really.) He ended it with "Have a good life. We will see you soon."

  • Junior looking on:

  • 7:47 CST (I highly suggest watching this clip from CNN as the plane took off with the loudspeakers blaring "I Did It My Way."  It's gold.) 

  • One last split screen:

  • It's over. 
  • Yesterday, the Republicans continued to turn on Trump with Mitch McConnell taking the lead on the Senate floor: "This mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the President and other powerful people. And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like."
  • That made Sean mad.

  • Remember on Monday when I posed the hypothetical about a third party led by Trump and how that could throw Wise County local elections into chaos? The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday he even has a name for it: The Patriot Party. 

  • This was the most notable pardon late last night. A pardon for the man who defrauded Trump's most loyal followers. 

  • No pardon for Joe Exotic. None for Ken Paxton. 
  • In the middle of the night:

  • This poor guy has not cut his hair since Trump took office, and he has posted a photo every day. This was yesterday:

  • will no longer be updating this composite poll of Trump's disapproval (top) and approval (bottom) ratings.

  • At least one Wise County resident who attended the Trump "rally" in D.C. on January 6th and posted his picture while there has now completed deleted his Facebook account.
