"Conservatism is the blind and fear-filled worship of dead radicals." - Mark Twain How can Americans be expected to vote for a presidential candidate who gets his ass kicked by a cartoon mouse? Mickey is apparently not a creature to be trifled with. As the Florida governor finalizes official plans to run for the White House, the Disney company kicked Ron DeSantis in his man gland with its announcement. Mighty Mouse cancelled a billion-dollar new campus at Lake Nona near Orlando, which disappeared 2000 jobs it was expected to create. Although the move is being positioned by Disney CEO Robert Iger as strictly a business decision, there is clearly a political impact on the GOP delusionist DeSantis. The loss of jobs and tax dollars can do nothing to help his national profile.
Interesting. I knew he was a JAG but he’s written of often as a Navy Seal. Probably let’s the confusion live for a reason.
DeSantis was not a Navy Seal. DeSantis deployed to Iraq as legal counsel to a SEAL commander during the 2007 surge of US troops.
There are no reasonable Republicans left. None of the names currently being bandied about are less radical than Trump, they are just possibly more palatable - with the exception of DeSantis, who seems determined to out Trump tfg . The Democrats need to up their messaging game, which has always been terrible , and register people to vote as fast as they can. The soul of America is indeed on the line.
Thanks as always J.B. It's a mad, mad, world.
