Spencer Brown at Town Hall says Even CNN Can't Spin Biden's Terrible Week. CNN has it's own problems. . .

Like, Dems wonder: Should we go on offense in the culture wars over CRT and "grooming"? urged on by AllahPundit at Haut Hair.
If you hit back, your base will thrill to the sight of you standing up for your beliefs. But then the public really will start paying attention to the substance of your opponent’s criticism. And some will reason that if you’re hitting back against the side that’s anti-CRT and anti-grooming, you must be pro-CRT and pro-grooming.

At the Columbus Dispatch, Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich admits 'I cried' after loss to Trump in 2016 presidential race. I remember when Kasich was being sold as a radical. John Sexton again, Florida Democrats hold protest on House floor, Republicans approve redistricting map over their shouting (Update). Insurrectionists!

Nick Arama at Red State writes Jen Psaki's Response to Chris Wallace on Parental Rights Laws Shows Exactly Why We Need Them
Why does Psaki want the teacher to be telling kids whether they are boys or girls? Heck, their Supreme Court candidate couldn’t even answer what a woman is, and neither could members of the administration. I don’t want someone who can’t even define what a woman is teaching my kid whether they’re a boy or a girl and filling their heads with some of the moral relativism that we’ve seen from the Biden Administration. Indeed, Psaki trips right over the very problem with this issue and why the law is needed.

Said Ron DeSantis, quoted in "Disney to Lose Special Tax Status in Florida Amid ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Clash/Lawmakers in the state voted to revoke the company’s special designation following a dispute with Gov. Ron DeSantis over a new education law" (NYT).
No one in the Weekend At Biden's Administration wants to take the blame for foisting this unpopular policy on the American public, so everyone passed the buck.
When they passed it to the CDC, the CDC was caught flat-footed and had to look at The Science (TM).
One suspects they were not analyzing the "science," but once again, consulting with "stakeholders" and politicians about the politics of it: Can we afford to piss off the Krazy Kovid Karens, the only cohort in America that still supports Biden by majority numbers?

I’d say 95% of the people on the flights and at the airports (and both DEN and IAH are big, crowded airports) were unmasked, and looking happy about it. It almost looked like 2019 again. I can’t imagine what would happen if Biden seriously tried to get them back into masks again.”
Well, since he’s a dotard heading an administration staffed by idiots, we may find out.
