Hump Day Political Hilarity

We're still following fallout from Biden's "You stupid son of a bitch" comment to Fox's own Peter Doocy. At Da Caller, ‘I Do Not Agree’: Jake Tapper Refuses To Play Along With Jimmy Kimmel’s Roast Of Fox News Reporter. Points to Jake. But Jim Acosta is still wallowing in self pity, CNN's Jim Acosta: I still have 'marks on my back' from standing up to Trump, "Acosta: 'I never got an apology' from Trump for his insults." Did he ever actually swear at you? I don't think so. And I have a question; what happened to Acosta after Trump? His star seems strangely faded. Ace woke up in the afternoon and noticed Media Got Its NPC Programming Update: Biden Wasn't Snapping At Doocy, He Was Merely "Deadpanning", "It's amazing how fast the NPCs update once that notification goes out." Monica Crowly at NYPo notes Joe Biden’s kindly uncle routine has always been a facade — he’s dangerous, just ask Justice Thomas. Chris Krisinger at Am Think wonders Is It Too Much to Expect That President Biden Abide By His Own Promise?. Hypocrisy is universal among politicians, but Democrats are far less likely to be called on it. 

Joe's unpopularity continues to soar. HE, Biden’s Approval Rating Plummets Again…to 41 Percent according to Pew. From Da Wire, Biden Approval Rating Plunges To New Low , 39% at the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll. CNS News, Gallup: Only 37% of Americans View Biden as a 'Strong and Decisive Leader.' That many? Breitbart, Poll: Majority of Voters Think Economy Is Unfair Under Biden "Roughly 60 percent of voters think the economy is “not very fair” (29 percent) or “not at all fair” (31 percent), according to a Rasmussen poll released on Monday." At WaEx, Paul Bedard has a Zogby poll which says  Biden lied to get elected and life is worse. Scott McKay call it Our Own Scottish Tragedy? "Aside from the mask, Joe Biden’s beginning to look a lot like Macbeth, "The Scottish tragedy is all about a guy who did what it took to grab political power he shouldn’t have rightly had, and unsurprisingly it all went exceptionally wrong. That sounds quite familiar." At Da Wire, Psaki Appears To Struggle To Answer What Biden Was Doing Today, Then A Reporter Tweeted Photos Of Biden going to an ice cream shop where he got one scoop. AllahPundit at Haut Hair repeats the rumor that White House "terrified" that Biden will get COVID. But I though he destroyed the virus!

'Bonchie' At Red State, Tensions Boil Over in the Biden Administration After Ron Klain Is Thrown Under the Bus. "Yet, I think it would be a big mistake for anyone to believe that Klain’s departure (likely to occur after the mid-term shellacking the Democrats are going to get) will somehow improve things for the Biden administration." At Town Hall, Kurt Schlichter encourages you to Savor the Democrats’ Humiliation

Sucks for the Dems that they have no choice but to stagger on toward ruin, accumulating ever more failures and disgraces, all the while doing the impossible and making the Republican Party look good, if only in comparison. But this is more than just a bad electoral cycle. Everyone has up years and down years. This is something much worse. This is a head-first dive into a cesspool with their eyes and mouths wide open.

Sundance at CTH is eager to report that Jim Cooper Becomes 29th House Democrat Who Will Not Attempt Reelection Bid. The Tennessee Star confirms Tennessee U.S. Congressman Jim Cooper Announces He Will Not Seek Re-Election. John Sexton at Haut Hair, Another House Democrat announces retirement (but Nancy Pelosi will run again). What was that last one? KRON 4 San Fran, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to seek re-election. Fox, Pelosi announces re-election bid ahead of 2022 midterms.'Bonchie' says Nancy Pelosi Makes a Panic Move and Sets up a Showdown With Her Own Party. Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media, Like a Hobo's Bad Foot Odor, Pelosi Is Sticking Around.

NYT, cited at Haut Hair thinks that With some voters ready to "move on," Dems search for new message on COVID. I know, how about some interparty warfare! Jazz Shaw, also at Haut Hair, Democrats drawing up midterm primary hit list, "Multiple sitting Democrats are in the crosshairs in both the House and the Senate and candidates are being courted to take them out." KT, also at Haut sees a Hair Texas primary battle rematch is wide open thanks to convenient timing of an FBI raid. We're not saying it's political interference, but we're also not saying it isn't.

Morgan Ortagus with some guy
At Da Fed, Rachel Bovard worries Republicans Plan To Win Back The Senate, Then Do Nothing, Per Usual. "Quick, do nothing" is rarely bad advice. Mediaite is worried that JD Vance Gleefully Accepts Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Endorsement: We’re Going to ‘Take the Country Back From the Scumbags’ like them. Derek Hunter at Town Hall is still pushing the idea Donald Trump For Speaker Of The House. Other than the "stick to them" aspect, I don't understand it; it's not in his skill set. At Da Wire, ‘Runaway Favorite’: Top Former Trump Official Mulls Congressional Run; Trump Immediately Weighs In Morgan Ortagus. Smart and beautiful; what's not to like? 

At Da Wire Gabe Kaminsky points out Biden Court Nominee Argued Voter ID Requirements Are ‘Same Playbook’ As Jim Crow. William Doyle at Am Great counters, Democrats in 2020 Wrote the Book on Voter Suppression and Election Subversion, "Joe Biden is right in saying that voter suppression and election subversion must be stopped. The problem for Democrats is that they have seen the enemy in the mirror." Also from Am Great, Albin Sadar, When Will People Finally See the Obvious? "Americans are waking up to the many ways the Left has lied to them over the last several years, but too many still believe the Democrats’ narrative about the 2020 election. Why?" At Town Hall, Maureen Riordan opines We Don’t Want the Justice Department Running our Elections

For example, during the 2000 Florida recount, I personally observed Voting Section staff discussing strategies to assist the Democrat Party while receiving and sending faxes to Democratic National Committee and campaign operatives.

Don’t just take my word for the Department of Justice’s misbehavior and abuses of Section 5. The Department has even been sanctioned by federal courts. Between 1993 and 2000, the Voting Section was sanctioned over $2 million.

At WaEx,  Justice Department investigating fake 2020 Trump elector certificates. I still say they were preparing the paperwork ahead of time for an eventuality than never occurred. 

Gratefully, a relative dearth of news on the Jan. 6 front. At the PI, House Select Committee Refuses To Say When Transcript Of Interview With Capitol Riot Figure Ray Epps Will Be Released. They're hiding something. Mike LeChance at LI, #WalkAway Founder Brandon Straka Sentenced to Three Months Home Confinement and Three Years Probation Over Jan 6, "The judge “said Straka was not being sentenced for his First Amendment protected speech, but rather for his conduct”"

"Straka encouraged people to walk away from the Democratic party and encouraged people to make videos explaining why they left the left."
. . .
According to prosecutors, Straka used his “significant public profile” to promote his activity on Jan. 6, and went to join the riots after having learned the Capitol building had been breached, encouraging others to do the same. He also recorded video of rioters entering the Capitol and encouraged them to take a police officer’s shield…

Did Kamala use her “significant public profile” to promote riots? Sure seems like it to me. Tristan Justice at Da Fed claims an Exclusive: House Republicans Demand Records Over Capitol Police Surveillance Of Constituents. Spying on the opposition? Looks that way. Also from Tristan, Bill Tracker Dings Republicans, But Not Democrats, For Questioning Election Certification, "Democrats who made similar objections in 2017, 2005, and 2001 remain on the website with no such descriptor." Regarding the Whitmer kidnapping trial, James Gagliano at NYPo notes The obsessive pursuit of woke domestic-terror laws isn’t making us safer, but it is serving their political goals and George Parry at Am Spec, Your FBI in War, Peace, and Swingers’ Clubs, "In today’s surveillance state, the FBI can coax otherwise harmless political grievances into full-fledged conspiracies."

Ace wakes up (again) to notice New Virginia AG Jason Miyares Fires Two Virginia University Lawyers, One of Them Currently Serving as... Head Investigator of the January 6 Committee, "This guy's awesome." John Sexton at Haut Hair catches the fact that  Politifact's fact-check of Va Lt. Gov. appears to have missed something. The truth. At NYPo, Parents wise up about Critical Race Theory. 

Regarding the war on masking in schools, From Da Wire, Jen Psaki Won’t Say If White House Believes Parents Know What’s Best For Their Kids. Because she knows the truth won't help. Also at Da Wire, NY Parent Told Maskless 8-Year-Old Will Be Segregated, Not Given ‘Instruction’ Despite Court Ruling but ABC 7 (NY), Masks required in NY schools today, judge grants stay pending appeal on mask mandate ruling. At Fox Business a video, Markowicz shuts down 'petty tyrants' trying to silence parents, "New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz says we can't 'stop our lives indefinitely' over COVID. All irrelevant. If you haven't had Omicron, you probably will. 

The Wombat has Rule 5 Sunday: Evangeline Lilly at The Other McCain.
