Wow – so much stupid, so little time! The Freeperati’s little bubble world is crumbling all around them, and it’s quite the banquet of schadenfreude, so let’s start with a little appetizer – “How did they blow this one??”
Democrat-backed candidate wins Wisconsin Supreme Court race

Dane County Circuit Judge Jill Karofsky unseated Justice Daniel Kelly in a hotly contested race last week that drew national attention from both major political parties, according to Monday evening reports.
The Wisconsin primary took place on April 7 despite health fears from the coronavirus pandemic, which led to a surge in absentee ballots that delayed the results for about a week.
While the race was technically nonpartisan, Karofsky drew support from national Democrats, while the GOP fell in line behind Kelly, who was appointed to the court in 2016 to fill a vacancy and was running for his first full term
****************Kelly has apparently conceded. Drops the conservative majority down to 4 seats to 3.

Is this a sign of things to come?
Well, you get what you vote for (and deserve it…)
Good and Hard.

Could it be something as simple as more Democrats voted on April 7 than Republicans because there was a contested presidential primary on the Dem side?
Was it really that contested? Biden has basically had it wrapped up since last month. A Supreme Court seat, on the other hand, would be something people would turn out for.
The whole thread boils down to this one post :

Coronavirus: 2,500 protesters rally against Washington stay-at-home orders KIRO ^ | Updated: April 19, 2020 – 5:14 PM | : KIRO 7 News Staff Posted on 4/19/2020, 9:24:36 PM by TaxPayer2000SEATTLE — Thousands of people gathered at the Washington state Capitol to protest Gov. Jay Inslee’s stay-at-home order designed to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
In Olympia on Sunday, some protesters wore masks, while others waved American flags.
The Washington State Patrol said an estimated 2,500 people showed up to the protest. No arrests were made.
Tyler Miller, one of the organizers of the event, had said rural areas should be treated differently than more urban locations with more coronavirus cases.
Earlier Sunday, Inslee decried President Donald Trump’s call to “liberate” parts of the country from social-distancing decrees, saying Trump is fomenting a potentially deadly “insubordination” before the pandemic is contained.
The latest statewide death toll as reported by the Department of Health had reached 634 deaths among 11,790 confirmed coronavirus cases as of 11:59 p.m. Saturday.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the counties with the highest totals: King County has 346 deaths among 5,135 cases; Snohomish County has 94 deaths among 2,101 cases; and Pierce County has 32 deaths among 1,109 cases.

Republican-Led Review Backs Intelligence Findings on Russian Interference (BARF) nytimes ^ | 4/21/2020 | Nicholas Fandos and Julian E. Barnes Posted on 4/21/2020, 11:19:41 PM by bittA new Senate report undercuts claims by President Trump and his allies that Obama-era officials sought to undermine him while investigating Russia’s 2016 election meddling.
For years, President Trump has derided the assessment by American intelligence officials that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election to assist his candidacy, dismissing it without evidence as the work of a “deep state” out to undermine his victory.
But on Tuesday, a long-awaited Senate review led by members of Mr. Trump’s own party effectively undercut those allegations. A three-year review by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee unanimously found that the intelligence community assessment, pinning blame on Russia and outlining its goals to undercut American democracy, was fundamentally sound and untainted by politics.

Trump suggests ‘injection’ of disinfectant to beat coronavirus and ‘clean’ the lungs
NBC News ^ | 4/23/2020 | Dartunorro Clark
Posted on 4/23/2020, 10:27:25 PM by Beave MeisterPresident Donald Trump suggested the possibility of an “injection” of disinfectant into a person infected with the coronavirus as a deterrent to the virus during his daily briefing Thursday.Trump made the remark after Bill Bryan, who leads the Department of Homeland Security’s science and technology division, gave a presentation on research his team has conducted that shows that the virus doesn’t live as long in warmer and more humid temperatures. Bryan said, “The virus dies quickest in sunlight,” leaving Trump to wonder whether you could bring the light “inside the body.”
“So supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it’s ultraviolet or just a very powerful light — and I think you said that hasn’t been checked because of the testing,” Trump said, speaking to Bryan during the briefing. “And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or some other way, and I think you said you’re going to test that, too.”
He added: “I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.”
He didn’t specify the kind of disinfectant.
Medical professionals, including Dr. Vin Gupta, a pulmonologist, global health policy expert and an NBC News and MSNBC contributor. were quick to challenge the president’s “improper health messaging.”

“I want the states to open more than he does. But I do not like at this early stage. I wasn’t happy with it, or with Brian Kemp,” Trump said of the Republican governor at the daily briefing of the Coronavirus Task Force at the White House.
