How low can Joe go? Move over, Carter. From Mike LeChance at LI, Biden’s Presidency is Entering the Polling Danger Zone of ‘Worst President Ever’ "“Most voters think President Joe Biden is one of the worst ever to hold the office, and rank him below his two immediate predecessors in the White House.” Miranda Devine at NYPo Blames Democrats for soaring crime, fallen police officers, entirely fair.

At OutKick, ESPN Guy Says China's Genocide is No Worse Than Red States Requiring Voter ID – OutKick. AllahPundit at Haut Hair on ESPN panelist: How can we judge China's genocide when voting rights here are under assault?
But beyond that, we saw recently that for a certain sort of left-wing bien pensant, whataboutism that equates China’s persecution of minorities with injustices in the U.S. is a badge of supreme wokeness. What starker way is there to signal how much you despise red states’ efforts to tighten voting requirements than to draw a moral equivalence to the horrors in Xinjiang?
Any progressive rando can lazily parrot the line that reducing early voting from three weeks to two is “the new Jim Crow.” Those who really care are willing to compare it to actual concentration camps.
Maybe that’s the new endpoint on the spectrum of American wokeness. There’s woke, then there’s extremely woke, then ludicrously woke, and finally anti-anti-genocide.
ESPN is still a sports network, right? It's been a while since I checked.

John Solomon at JTN, Bannon Bombshell: New filing accuses feds of snooping on one of his defense lawyers.
Bannon's motion seeks to force prosecutors to turn over all records, including subpoenas, that show prosecutors efforts to obtain Costello's records.
The motion also suggests a need for more discovery on how the grand jury that indicted Bannon was instructed and what the lead FBI agent in the case told jurors.
The defense argued that lead agent did not tell the grand jury that Bannon had sought a one-week delay in responding to the subpoena, a fact that might have convinced the jurors he did not intend to obstruct the congressional probe.
