Adam Schiff Is Running Out Of Patience

LOCK THEM UP DAMMIT, said Wonkette, after reading some things Adam Schiff said.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who spent years investigating Donald Trump and all his accomplices in the House Intelligence Committee's Russia investigations and who sits on the House's January 6 committee that voted last night to hold Steve Bannon in contempt, is expressing some of the same frustration we expressed in our last blog post. He is very damn ready for there to be some damn accountability for Trump and everybody who surrounds him, and he sounds like he's running out of patience.

Michael Isikoff reports that on the "Skullduggery" podcast Tuesday, Schiff specifically called out Attorney General Merrick Garland for his apparent reluctance to investigate Trump too deeply for literally trying to overthrow America in front of all of our faces.

Anti-Vax, Unmasked Cops Throwing Whiny-Ass Temper Tantrums ERREWHERE

How dare you expect law enforcement officers to obey the law!

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday that New York police, firefighters, and other municipal workers have until November 1 to get vaccinated or placed on unpaid leave. This should go over like 99 lead balloons with the city's cops, who like enforcing rules but aren't so thrilled with following them.

New York police often walk around with their faces uncovered on public transport, despite the mask requirements. Tuesday, a couple officers manhandled commuter Andrew Gilbert for repeatedly asking them to wear a mask on a subway platform. They bum-rushed the guy and shoved him through the emergency exit at the 8th Street station in the Village. Presumably, the law they chose to enforce here was Never Piss Off The Cops.

The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) has pleaded with cops to consistently wear masks in the giant petri dishes they call subway stations and on trains, but the police don't seem interested.

"Eighty percent of the time they make some lame excuse or put the mask on," [Gilbert] said. "I really wish that we had a police department that was dedicated to public safety… They're just standing there, doing nothing, spreading COVID, and flouting the rules as a show of force. They can just do what they want and there's no accountability for it."

You Want A Death Cult? 'Federalist' Lady Will Give You A Death Cult!

Don't we all want to meet Jesus sooner than later?

As some rightwing figures are encouraging people to own the libs by actively seeking infection with the coronavirus, the folks at the Federalist yesterday reminded good people of faith that, as the headline puts it, "For Christians, Dying From COVID (Or Anything Else) Is A Good Thing." Joy Pullman, the executive editor of the site, chirpily explains that it's really a shame that so many Christians have bought into the secular, and wrong, idea that death during a pandemic is a bad thing. After all, only heretics would believe that "life is over once a person stops breathing," or indeed that humans can actually prevent death at all.

In fact, if you're a Christian and you think the best way to handle a pandemic is to try to keep people from dying, then you probably ought to "repent for the way we and our institutions responded" to the pandemic, although Pullman downgrades it to an "outbreak" and carefully avoids mentioning that it's killed 728,000 Americans so far.

This Is A Very Nice Post About Maggie Haberman

No trash here, we promise.

Hey, it looks as if Maggie Haberman at the New York Times is not pleased with Wonkette. We hope she wasn't a regular subscriber. Perhaps not fully appreciating the Streisand effect, Haberman tweeted this to her 1.7 million followers:

Twitter

I admit I'm flattered. Haberman's tweet makes me feel like a cast member on Saturday Night Live (regardless of the season), who's always considered worse than anyone on the show 20 years earlier.

But I firmly stand behind my trash post, which is arguably the nicest thing I've written about Haberman. For those who came in late, Haberman downplayed the fact that Donald Trump keeps calling himself “your president." This is the same Donald Trump who refused to concede the presidential election he lost and still claims it was "stolen" and Joe Biden isn't the legitimate commander in chief.

Apparently, there's nothing to see here, folks, because as Haberman noted, "Bill Clinton's office calls him President Clinton too. Of things they do, this doesn't seem that odd." However, Clinton never incited an insurrection against Congress and tried to make himself dictator for life. Details.
