I generally enjoy @JonahDispatch’s columns and the one in my paper today is good except I have no idea if he’s arguing against actual crazy stuff supposed conservatives believe or if the whole thing is a straw man.

Doug Belden sexually assaulted a woman in public and only admitted the act once surveillance video was posted by a local TV station. He blamed the incident on being drunk.

Today, @TB_Times praised him in a lengthy editorial & did not mention the incident

INBOX: Asked a source at Dominion Voting Systems if the company is satisfied with the walk-backs by media outlets who received litigation warnings:

"Dominion found the clarifications from Fox News and NewsMax bizarre and wholly unsatisfying. And OAN has done nothing."

OAN spread the Dominion hoax again 13 times today alone

Sure have been a lot of soft technical fouls called this season.

Raptors having a large enough lead that the announcers are fully into garbage-time chatter about travel issues is a new experience for us

Good MLK intro on TSN before the Raps game. I’ve always been a little curious where his legacy fits in in Canadian culture.

The top two Senate leaders are nearing a power-sharing agreement to hash out how the divided chamber will operate, with Democrats in charge of setting the schedule but both parties likely to hold an equal number of seats on Senate committees, sources say

absolute insanity that Democrat senators choose a leader who immediately diminishes their power

Thread: MyPillow CEO and right-wing fixture Mike Lindell explained his White House visit with right-wing radio host Eric Metaxas (who tweeted hashtag martial law in support of Lindell).

The interview had deranged conspiracy theories, justifications of violence, and more.

The Wall Street Journal published Metaxas just last year

I know it’s a running joke that the Trump administration is pro-virus, but they literally provided anti-virus public funds to groups that help COVID kill more people.

There’s usually some leftover batter in the bottom of the mixing bowl. Not enough for a full sized griddle cake. That one’s for the hound

@FrancisSuarez @CityofMiami Cars & trucks stuck in traffic generate megatons of toxic gases & particulate, but @boringcompany road tunnels under Miami would solve traffic & be an example to the world.

Spoke with @RonDeSantisFL about tunnels last week. If Governor & Mayor want this done, we will do it.

There are only two public tunnels in the entire state of Florida for a reason and this charlatan does not possess the power to overcome that reason.

Ron DeSantis might be stupid enough to be convinced he could, though, which is scary.

A cool thing about hosting the Super Bowl is that all your open public spaces which were safe places to engage in recreation during a pandemic become taken over by the NFL and access-controlled for their events.

I launched a project last month somewhat quietly, & today I wanted to make a more public announcement in hopes you'll join me in supporting it. It's a pretty big undertaking, but it's already seeing results.
