Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

It was just for Evading With a Vehicle in Wise County, but he had a long criminal history which the jury apparently didn't appreciate.   He was a little bit of a nut as I wrote about here when I watched some of the trial. He insisted on representing himself on appeal after his conviction, but failed to file his brief on time and the case was affirmed.

  • Now that we are headed down, the next question will be if we will have another surge in the Winter around November or December?

  • But the crisis is far from over. 

  • Here's a "How It Started/How It's Going" Meme.
    Sept. 6th

    Last night

  • Speaking of the California recall election, I bet this election worker in Los Angeles County had a really bad night later when he saw the election returns. (Yes, it's real. And, yes, he was removed.)

  • Speaking of Carlson, he clarified last night the status of the relationship between Nicki Minaj and someone else's swollen testicles. We live in the dumbest of times. 

  • There were a ton of Norm MacDonald clips floating around floating around yesterday, and I really liked this one when he ragged on the new movie that Courtney Thorne-Smith was on Conan's show to promote. And she was a heck of a sport through it all.

  • This is a wild video out of Florida where a guy ended up being shot multiple times in a clearly justifiable use-of-force situation. And this was a heck of a line, and a heck of a delivery of it, from the Sheriff: "This individual got exactly what he deserved. And to those out there who might be foolish enough to ask why we shot him so many times, that answer is simple: Because evil can never be dead enough."   It's in the video, too. 

  • Sign in Decatur.

  • Bob Woodward is offering sneak peaks of his new book, Peril, and it has some gold in it. 

    • Who would have thought Dan Quayle would end up saving democracy?

    • Trump's reaction to Pence's failure to overturn the election was to react like a second grader:

    • The Joint Chiefs of Staff thought Trump was going so crazy after the January 6th Insurrection that he worried about him using the nukes. Gen. Mark A. Milley "convened a meeting with top commanders to remind them that the procedures for launching a nuclear weapon called for his involvement in such a decision."

    • And China thought Trump was about to go off the rails after the Insurrection as well so Milley had to get on the horn with China's Gen. Li Zuocheng to calm him down.
