We’ve got a lot to cover

For the one or two readers who may have noticed, I haven’t posted in a while seems, every time I was about to post something Cong. George Santos (R-Never Never Land) told another lie or there’d be yet another round of voting for Speaker of the House, making whatever I was going to say Inoperative. So, as CBS News anchor Nora O’Donnell annoyingly says every night, “we’ve got a lot to cover”:

Best Meme of the State of the Union. Cong. Marjorie Taylor Greene cupping her mouth as she screamed “liar” in the middle of President Biden’s State of the Union Address. Also, for wearing a white fur coat, as she continues to show her ever-day woman image to the country. The cyber-universe universally said she was dressed like Cruella de Vil. Also, as her debut as a candidate for Vice President on a potential Donald Trump ticket?

Best Trap Laid at the State of the Union. President Biden for sucking in the “ready to attack at any opportunity” caucus of Republicans when he said some in the GOP caucus want to cut Social Security and Medicare. The Taylor Greens and others jumped out of their seats to exclaim they didn’t want to do that nor have they said they would!!! Biden smiled, and said he loved a good conversion and was glad that issue was settled.

Most Uncomfortable Seat at the State of the Union. New House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, whose face ranged from stoic to smug to shushing members of his caucus, as he tried to figure out his post-speech spin to explain their rude outbursts…
