I'll take Covid in Floriduh for $100...or "Is DeSantis toast?"

California - 40M people, 18k cases last week


Florida- 22M people (about half) with 57k cases last week


Florida: 266 case per 100k versus 46 per 100k in California


5.8 fold MORE cases in Florida.


DeSantis is outlawing masks, outlawing vaccine checks, I mean it is as if he actually believes his own lies. (There was a great clip of him screaming at the press from the white house driveway with Pence watching....Pence thinking "dude, shut the F up")


The guy acts like he thinks he can bully the virus into submission. Sadly, for Floridians, this isnt working. And I think he is in a very bad position politically, he has little room to maneuver since he was so brash and reckless with his proclamations and policies. Every time he could have taken a cautious stance, he doubled down.


So, whatdaya think? Hows it looking for him in 2022? 2024?

I think he's channeling Trumpism and hoping his familiar antics could win him the next presidential candidate among die hard trump fans.

For sure.



But too many republicans are going to start dying.... Its one thing to pedal performative belligerence....but when the bodies stack up, those 'center' voters- the ones between 30% Trump diehards and 50.0001% that he needs are going to have a hard time with rank stupidity and cruelty. I think.



Lots of R governors are hedging their bets, giving themselves some wiggle room as the virus re-defines the battle-space. But not DeSantis.


Leader of the new alt-right death cult? Could be.

If this group of voters ever grow big enough to affect the outcome of the next presidential race....

I'm gonna have to polish up my karate training and hope for the best.

Can't wait to use violence against people who aren't in your party, huh?

Remember that people will only take being threatened, ostracized, criticized or talked down to for a finite amount of time. When they have had enough they probably will go straight to 11....

I do and I even have class III and DD.

P.S. See how to answer a question above and try to apply it to yourself and the generalization you were asked to clarify with specifics in the What's the matter with Joe Biden thread....

Like all them patriots on Jan 6?

Grievance filled white racists tired of being ‘threatened, ostracized, criticized or talked down to”…just natural and justified for them to go to 11?

Glad you aren’t one of them. I mean you know that getting your feelings hurt isnt justification for insurrection nor armed rebellion, right?

Florida sets yet another daily record on COVID infections. Highest of the entire pandemic I believe….

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/florida...s-record-high/


Florida reports highest number of new COVID-19 cases in a single day since the start of the pandemic


And DeSantis- ever so eager to establish his bona fides as the leader of the Republican Death Cult- is busy suppressing masks and vaccines.

Florida Has a huge tie to the rest of the country. People have relatives from all over the continent visiting or getting visited. It’s the perfect nesting ground for delta variant.
