Dr. Birx Thinks We Could’ve Prevented So Many COVID-19 Deaths If We Hadn’t Listened To Dr. Birx

It’s a damn shame.

Dr. Deborah Birx, the former White House coronavirus response coordinator, told Congress this month that the Trump administration had “gotten somewhat complacent through the campaign season," apparently like bored high school seniors in May. The administration's “distraction" during a global pandemic directly led to the deaths of 130,000 Americans. Whoops!

The Washington Post reports:

Birx, who sat for interviews with the subcommittee on Oct. 12 and 13, also detailed advice that she said the White House ignored late last year, including more aggressively testing younger Americans, expanding access to virus treatments and better distributing vaccine doses in long-term care facilities.

Of course, Dr. Birx was a member of Trump's band of bunglers and should've said something at the time, during all the death. I admit that Dr. Birx resigning in protest and giving whistleblowing "60 Minutes" interviews wouldn't have done much against Trump's full-court COVID-19 denialism. However, when Birx says the number of preventable deaths were in the neighborhood of small cities, you have to ask how many people could she have saved if she'd acted?

Fox News's Neil Cavuto Comes Back From COVID To Viewers Wishing Him Dead

What did he do? Told them to get vaccinated.

Here's a deranged Fox News video for you.

Fox host Neil Cavuto is immunocompromised and has MS. He's a cancer survivor. He's been trying and trying and trying to get Fox viewers to get their damn COVID vaccines, after he got a breakthrough case. About getting COVID, he said, "Had I not been vaccinated, and with all my medical issues, this would be a far more dire situation." He doesn't want his viewers to die, for some reason.

And now he's back on the TV, and they played some of the viewer messages people left for him while he was away. Cavuto does this sometimes, with the viewer comments and the hate mail. Fox News watchers, of course, are as charming as they are literate. And because in this case it was Fox News watchers dealing with an immunocompromised person who is vaccinated, the messages ranged from their usual weird wingnut "jokes" to downright deranged. Oh yeah and a couple death threats. Totally normal.

Cavuto did note, still broadcasting from home, that some of the messages he got were nice, and they played a few nice ones, but ...

McConnell Endorses Herschel Walker For GA Senate Because, Well, What’s The Point Of Anything Anymore?

This is what happens when Republicans feel confident they've rigged the vote.

Mitch McConnell has come around on Herschel Walker as the GOP candidate for next year's US Senate race in Georgia, and we're sure it's a coincidence that the GOP establishment is rallying behind such an obviously terrible candidate so soon after Republicans killed yet another Democratic voting rights bill.

McConnell released this glowing review today:

I am happy to endorse Herschel Walker for U.S. Senate in Georgia. Herschel is the only one who can unite the party, defeat Senator Warnock, and help us take back the Senate. I look forward to working with Herschel in Washington to get the job done.

You'll recall that McConnell originally had some reservations about the former football star with zero political experience. He considered Walker's past a vulnerability. This summer, McConnell's crony Josh Holmes shared a link on Twitter to an Associated Press article detailing Walker's violent behavior, which included allegedly putting a gun to his ex-wife's head. Holmes tweeted: "This is about as comprehensive a takedown as I've ever read. My lord." That didn't seem like praise.
