Wednesday... and it's my retail version of Friday - off for 2 days starting tomorrow, of course then I need to work for 6 days after that, so...
Yesterday Gallup put out something in regard to the Idiot Jerk's approval ratings which states the obvious: among Republicans, the subgroup giving him his most support is 'middle-aged and older white non-grads.' Okay... so is anyone surprised? Not me. Now we know why his Twitter rants sound like those of a high-school dropout: the members of that subgroup are his 'number one fans!' The only time the opinions of subgroups come in to play is with Independent voters. Among Independents his approval ratings sits at a solid 34%. Shit!
I bring this up because yesterday the people of Chicago voted Lori Lightfoot into the Mayor's office. For those who don't know, Ms Lightfoot is black... and she's lesbian. If you listen closely, you can hear Pat Robertson spinning in his grave... wait... what do you mean he isn't dead yet? Shit. Well, if that's true, we need to prepare ourselves for the damnation of God. Mark my words, the next time something bad happens, a storm, a mass shooting, or California falls into the Pacific Ocean, old Pat will spit out something like "America's being punished for Lori Lightfoot!" Oh, and he's not going to be alone, there are quite a few white Evangelicals who are going to be farting out the same shit. And that white uneducated subgroup who loves the Idiot Jerk in the White House? They'll believe Pat and his fellow haters.
The truth is they are the ones who should be preparing... but they're not.
Can we get a round of applause for Lori?
As I was writing this, I wondered if the Idiot Jerk in the White House called to congratulate her, I mean she is going to be mayor of the 3rd largest city in America. He may have, to do otherwise would make him look like a stinking racist. Does he realize this will bring a change to 2020? Chicago has a lot of voters. I would not be surprised if he and his White Evangelical cronies are already preparing the hate they will need to spread. They don't understand that this is a sign... and not the one for which they are so desperate.
