Re: This Little “Eliminationist Hatred” Problem You Have
We go way back, of course – and not in a good way. You have a bit of a history of being a horrible excuse for a human being. But you are a gift that keeps giving, for people like me, so for that I thank you, even if backhandedly.
I won’t pullquote anything – the article is long, and never really improves over the title.
But I have two questions.
First, some background – here’s the listed Covid fatalities/million as of last Friday:
- NY (D): 1,684
- NJ (D): 1,790
- US average: 474
- FL (R): 319
- MN (DFL): 291
- TX (R): 241
- ND (R): 135
So I’ve got two questions for you, Mr. Chait:
- Did you ever refer to Cuomo (or the governors of NJ/CT/MA) as running a “death cult?” I’ll confess, I’m an infrequent reader of yours. I only read you (or John Fugelsang) when you step on your d**k spectacularly – but I’d hate to be unfair.
- I wager you a shiny new quarter that as of November 3, 2020, TX and FL will be below half NY’s fatalities per million. Any action on that bet?
By the way – at the risk of sounding uncharitable, there are times that I think you are God’s karmic gift to me for never teasing the short-bus kids in elementary school. For this, I thank Him, and urge you to keep up the, uh, work, karmically speaking.
That is all.
Side Note: I’m making this the The George W. Bush Corollary To Berg’s Seventh Law – All of a Republican’s sins, imaginary or (for sake of argument) real, will be forgotten once the Republican can no longer hold office.
