Democratic dreaming

I see Democrats reacting to the recent Supreme Court cases with their wish list.
This November, we can elect more Democrats, abolish the filibuster and make the changes we want.
It's like planning on getting out of debt by winning the lottery.
Ain't gonna happen.

Out of the mouths of babes

 From Powerline's week in pictures.

Thinking of Aunt Mary

With the reversal of Roe v. Wade, I thought about my Aunt Mary.
She was involved in the pro life movement from its start in the 70s.
She worked hard for the cause, and the hard work paid off at the Supreme Court.

Democrats are sunk

We have to wait for five months to be sure, but Democrats seem doomed in the 2022 elections.
Each time the price of gas goes up, another Democrat can plan on losing.
It doesn't matter what the price is in other places. 
Or that President Biden doesn't determine prices. 
Democrats can't avoid the blame.

Is it okay to watch NHL tonight?

ESPN has Game 5 of the Rangers vs. Lightning series Thursday at 8 p.m.
At the same time the January 6 committee meets.
Is it okay to watch NHL?
Liz Cheney fusses that Fox isn't showing the committee when the other networks are.
Does the committee think giving the public no further options benefits their cause?
"You'll watch our information and you'll like it."
No thanks.

Only gas prices matter

Blue Virginia runs a silly column bound to doom any Democrats who listen - explaining how it's a dishonest debate over gas prices.
Guess they haven't left the house in months.
The columnist plays the inflated price comparison - it was worse in 2008.
Forgetting that Republicans lost big that November after the price of gas spiked.
What will they say when the average price of gas stops $5.37/gallon - their inflation adjusted standard.
The second point is people had good feelings about the future economy - in 2021. About two dollars per gallon ago.
The latest surveys won't be so optimistic.
And don't blame President Biden and don't talk about drilling more.
Even if drilling more gave us low prices just three years ago.
Pipelines and drilling now won't drop prices now - it takes 16 months. Like the 16 months where we could have been drilling, but instead the Biden administration threw up regulations and shut down planned pipelines.
With prices so high, it's the Democratic election machine that's out of gas.

I'm still standing

Wombat's current project is cleaning up the links at The Other McCain.
Proud to have been on the blogroll since 2009.
