I really don’t get how untethered from reality this man is. He really does seem to believe the nonsense he published actually is legitimate data that proves the election was stolen. He’s not running a con.

My favorite part of that arbitrator's ruling was how Lindell's own expert testified that 𝘩𝘦 𝘩𝘢𝘥 𝘢𝘥𝘷𝘪𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘓𝘪𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘰 𝘤𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘰𝘧𝘧.

Do you have to not have a sense of humor to be an arbitrator? Because I don't see how any person with normal humor would not be on the floor, screaming with laughter.

Oh dear, blaspheme - lumpy pillow! That's a mortal sin!

I'll tell you what—they ARE terrible. The last time I went back to the States, six years ago (for my middle son's wedding), I had to stay with my parents for about a week. For context, these are your typical Minnesotan Fox News-obsessed, conspiracy-lovin', Obama-hatin', "Somalians are taking over the state!" old folks who are terrified of everything their beloved Fox, OAN, and Newsmax spirit guides tell them to be terrified of. The first night, I couldn't sleep; the pillows my mom had on the guest bed were hard, too big, and yes, very lumpy. I tossed them onto the floor and slept without any pillows at all. The next morning, Mom asked how I slept and I was honest, I told her the pillows made my neck hurt and gave me a headache so I slept without them. She looked like I'd just punched her in the face. "Well," she grumbled, "they're good pillows, and they're really expensive..." She mumbled something about "MyPillow" and "we have them in ALL the bedrooms now," which I didn't understand because I live in the UK and at that time (2018) Mike Lindell wasn't in the news every damn day. But, when the shit hit the fan at election time, it all became clear. They don't speak to me anymore because I'm a socialist demon who abandoned her country [insert eye roll] but if they did, I'd ask if they still have those horrendous pillows or if they bought some of the machinery from Mikey to make their own, lol!

I actually left in 2011 (voted again for Obama from here, voted for Hillary from here, and voted for Old Handsome Joe from here—because damn it, I'm still American!); I used to go back and forth as often as we could afford it, about once every 12-15 months. But after that last time, things had changed in my old 'hood of central MN too much—what used to be a solid Democrat county in a solid Democrat state had become what I can only describe as a stinking hellhole of conservative nationalism. Trump signs everywhere (despite the election being two years previous) and just a pervasive feeling of...oh, I don't know, "redneckness." I'd love to see my kids again (and meet my grandkids) but I just can't figure out how to go back for a visit without my parents knowing. Even though they've said I'm "dead to [them]," they'd still be pissed if I didn't come and listen to their ranting about how Biden has driven the country into the ground.

OMFG, that commercial!

I half-expected that lady to start strafing the kid in the sandbox. "I'll teach you to pile dirt on yourself, you little shit!"

That would have made that commercial 1000% percent better.

Maybe it's just me, but that's a trope that really grinds my gears. The Mom in commercials does a load of wash, or mops the floors, or vacuums the carpet, followed by a shot where Hubby/kids/dog IMMEDIATELY ruin her work, and she just shakes her head.

It's not enough that "women's work" is neither paid, nor even recognized as "real work", but it's actually actively ruined.

Can you imagine a commercial where the kids and the dog run through Dad's bookkeeping office and spill ink on the page, or a commercial where Dad the house painter is washing his hands after a hard day at work, only to discover his kids drawing on the wall he just finished painting?

There was an older one, with a burly man that definitely had the Korean War vet vibe going. Just the product name evokes acts of war.

When Lindell reveals that the data was all recorded to a thumb drive made out of bamboo, won't you all feel foolish for having doubted him.

Expand full comment

I just got a set of bamboo sheets delivered today. Should I be afraid, or maybe embarrassed?

Expand full comment

It depends, have you held them up to the light and can you see that they are in fact made up of all the votes that the proven rapist Defendant Trump really got but were turned into sheets by the Dominion voting machines???

Expand full comment

Hahahahahahahaha!!!!! How does it feel to be Mike Lindell, I wonder. To have sacrificed everything that you spent years building, all in service of a man who would probably step on you if you were to fall down in front of him, dead. Pathetic.

"Of the $5 million, Lindell huffed in text to a WaPo reporter, “of course we’re going to appeal it. This guy doesn’t have a dime coming.”

Don't forget that it was a Broadway show before it was a movie.

We saw it on Broadway with the fabulous Randee Heller (and her five octave range) as Rizzo.

She later went on to play Mrs. Blankenship on "Mad Men".

I gotta say, there's one really sad aspect to the whole Mike Lindell story.

I've seen that he made it a practice to hire recovering addicts, people recently released from prison, and others who might otherwise have trouble finding jobs otherwise. That's very commendable, and it's unfortunate they have to suffer because their boss is an ignoramus.
