David takes a look about the phony Dr. Seuss “cancellation” scamdal and tries to separate the truth from the right-wing gibberish. (Warning: Short ad stars at about the eight-and-a-half minute mark.)
As an aside, Dr. Seuss stories were not a part of my childhood, but they were certainly part of my kids’.
In the light of the previous federal executive’s loss in the recent national election, a number of Republican legislators are proposing bills to gut out the vote. One of their justifications* can be loosely paraphrased as “well, lots of persons think that something was wrong, so we must act.”
At the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Howard Kirtz has a suggestion for them. Here’s a bit of his article (emphasis added).
A number of Georgia legislators have stated that they want to protect against any possible fraud by making a whole list of changes to the voting procedures. But there was no fraud. However, the argument goes that so many people are convinced that there was fraud, that the legislators must do something about that perception.
Here is another solution: tell the voters of Georgia the truth! There was no fraud in the recent elections, so there is nothing to fix. If there is a perception problem, tell the voters the truth. That will fix the perception problem. If the legislators do not think that will fix the problem, then they have no faith in their own ability to persuade. They should retire from the political arena and let those who can speak the truth in a convincing way lead the state.
*The “justifications,” of course, are just for show; gutting out the vote is the goal, not an unintentional side effect. Said “justifications” make your local used car dealers claims about that used Yugo that’s been on the lot for two decades look truthful.
