Maybe some good will evolve from this tragic death.

The man was 41 with a wife and two young children. A terrible tragedy to be sure. Yet the fact that he was well known in his district as a Republican Congressman-elect might shift the fence sitters about the efficacy of the vaccine and the real dangers of COVID for all Americans. And until we get the vaccine mass distributed, precautions are critical.

    Wish I was optimistic about that. Until it comes from the man on the Florida Golf Course with the big red hat and the VERY big white golf shirt, it won’t matter. But he’s too busy playing golf, challenging election results (that have been decided NUMEROUS times), and complaining that his wife isn’t getting enough magazine covers.

    The LTE today (or maybe yesterday; they are starting to run together) that made the point that if Trump had just conceded when the results became clear, he would have only lost once; now it is over 50 times.

    1. I get it. He wants to burnish his creds as a fighter.

      Dramatically ripping off the mask on the balcony followed by bragging that the virus is no big deal was part of that act.

      Of course it probably set the surges in motion. “If my man can do it and survive, so can I and my relatives.”

      How is that working for us, bunky?

  2. “In the months prior to his diagnosis, Letlow held multiple campaign events, including meet-and-greets where people did not wear masks and in some cases were not adhering to social distancing.

    In October, he also pushed for states to lift lockdown measures and ‘reopen the economy’.”

    I am tempted to note that Karma is a bitch but I will not. No need to invite a charge of being uncaring from the usual suspects who do not seem to care that Trump’s incompetence has cost many tens of thousands of lives.
