I want to put a plug in for The Conservative Treehouse's Sundance for his careful analysis of the Republican presidential candidates. He has been watching Republican politics for a long time and he always has a take I think is worth reading. He has a slew of articles tagged with "Election 2024" that includes some key articles. Read anything he writes about Nikki Haley and Ron de Santis. He is very pro-Trump, and he makes that clear, but he also produces a lot of evidence to support his position that De Santis has been picked by the Republican National Party already and they are already moving to push the national dialog towards him. 

Very short take: Nikki Haley has been assigned to be de Santis' attack dog, so that de Santis doesn't have to say a negative word.

It being Ground Hog Day, shouldn't today's breakfast pic be featuring pork sausages?

How about a nice rock 'n' roll song for DeSantis?

“Gun violence” also “erupted” on the DC Metro yesterday.

Just weasel while you're "woke"
And with your cancel culture you can be in someone's face
So take pointless offense
It won't take long to send somebody packing in disgrace

And as you spread the gloom
Imagine that it elevates you morally above
As you force other people to dance to your tune
Your keening cry helps you get by, so weasel while you're "woke."

So weasel while you're "woke."

---from Disney's upcoming "Snow White Supremacy and the Seven Vertically-Challenged People"

Not intentionally. I just couldn't figure out what to post in reply to your lyrics. I got nothing.

So Ilhan Omar has been thrown off her committee assignments.

Next, she needs to be thrown out of Congress and then the US. If Somalia won't take her back, I suggest Afghanistan.

Chinese spy balloon detected over the US

A Red Balloon? Are there another 98 of them out there?

Ninety-nine red balloons
On the US they spy

Jukebox. Turn the captions on, and they are prophetic - I hope not, but...

Or just read the last verse here

Ninety-nine dreams I have had

In every one, a red balloon

It's all over and I'm standin' pretty

In this dust that was a city

If I could find a souvenir

Just to prove the world was here

And here is a red balloon

I think of you, and let it go...
