Trump Administration / Re: Trump Administration

Murray says the IHME model shows a "huge surge" expected to take off in October "and accelerate in November and December." The IHME model indicates that the country is currently seeing about 765 daily deaths from Covid-19, but that number could jump to 3,000 daily deaths by late December.

Chris Murray is a dick.
Chris Murray has both an undergraduate  degree and a medical degree from Harvard. He was a Rhodes Scholar. Some guy on a message board who thinks the West Wing is a documentary calls Chris Murray a dick. Thank God for the Internet.



I am impressed.

Doesn't mean he can't be a dick.

He could/should put his brains to much better use.

You would know about being a dick, I suppose.

But you have not explained why his accurately reporting the news makes him a dick, dick.

It takes a man who while doing everything in his power to profit off the presidency still loses money to steer the country in to trillions of dollars of new debt while at the same time destroying more than ten million jobs. That he’s also killing hundreds of us a day only makes him a mainstream republican.

That's not entirely fair.

We don't know about 2018 or 2019 and we know that in 2016 and 2017 he is purported to have made money! Granted, not much, but still...

This was a bit of a shocker:

https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/27/politics/brad-parscale-hospitalized/index.html

Brad Parscale was involuntarily hospitalized after his wife called police because he was suicidal and had weapons.

And while he may have been "demoted" from his prior position, he emptied his desk and is seldom seen in the offices.

I wonder if the NYT news about Trump had anything to do with his feelings today.

Regardless, I am pleased that he is getting help. May it be what he needs.

Chris Murray is a dick.

How dare he report what the model says accurately!

IHME's model is currently low.

I hope they will prove to be high, but the conduct of (oh so terribly bright, says Ward) Americans in the face of the pandemic does not make me as optimistic as I would like to be.

So, Kid, what do you think is a better number? Or are you with Trump and you just want to seem optimistic and have the American people lied to (more)?!

It looks like Grady Little Syndrome has kicked in again at Fenway as Ron Roenicke is let go. Ron wasn't as good a cheater, it seems, as CHEATING CORA:

 

“As manager, he showed poise and leadership in navigating an extremely challenging year. We are grateful for all of his contributions in our uniform.”

Roenicke replaced Cora in February after Cora and Boston split following MLB’s report on the Astros’ cheating during the 2017 season, when Cora was Houston’s bench coach. Roenicke had previously served as bench coach under Cora. Cora was later banned by MLB for one season.

Multiple reporters added fuel to Cora’s potential return on Twitter Sunday. MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reports Red Sox ownership “was among [Cora’s] biggest supporters. So do not rule out a return.”
 

Yep. They love to cheat up there in New England.

Cora really should have been banned for life, but I guess his Boston connections saved his ass.

https://nypost.com/2020/09/27/alex-cora-speculation-begins-after-red-sox-fire-ron-roenicke/

Roenicke's firing was predicted in the middle of the 6-18 start and it is well earned.

But you knew that.

Because the plan was to bring the better cheater back to Cheatsville?

Could be.Meanwhile, Josh, you might want to tell your little puppy dog to go shit somewhere else.

This is where we discuss baseball.

If only you practiced what you preach, Ham.

Said the pot to the kettle.

Thank you for admitting your hypocrisy.

I wish the MLB owners could do the same about theirs.

https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/v7gwyy/new-body-cam-footage-raises-questions-about-breonna-taylor-death-investigation

Gee, the footage shows contradictions with the official testimony and claims of the officers involved as well as violations of department policy. Like the claim that none of the 7 raiders wore a body cam, but we can see one in the footage who was wearing one.

Are they suggesting that the police might have lied?!

https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/27/politics/trump-income-taxes-new-york-times-report/index.html

Trump insists he pays "a lot" in federal income taxes and in state income taxes and he'll release his taxes "when the audit is over."

His organization said most of the numbers are inaccurate, but requested a copy of the documents.

"When they are done being audited," is what the Times should have replied. They just said no.

Well put: "Goodbye to baseball in Boston for 2020. It is not a fond farewell."

https://www.sunjournal.com/2020/09/27/on-baseball-cant-blame-mookie-trade-for-all-this-mess/

No, not at all! Mookie's presence might have added up to at most 4 additional wins (using his 3.4 WAR and some of the negatives), and more like 1.5 (his minus Verdugo's).

Injuries played a major role. So did the manager.

From fivethirtyeight

Quote
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that ballots can arrive as late as Nov. 6 and still count as long as no evidence (e.g., a postmark) exists that they were mailed after Election Day (Nov. 3).

A state judge in Michigan decreed that ballots can be counted as long as they are postmarked by the day before the election (Nov. 2) and received by Nov. 17.

A federal judge ordered Wisconsin to count absentee ballots that are postmarked by Nov. 3 as long as they arrive by Nov. 9.
And North Carolina reached a tentative court settlement with plaintiffs that, among other things, would allow ballots to count as long as they are postmarked by Nov. 3 and arrive by Nov. 12. (However, the settlement still needs to be approved by a judge before it officially goes into effect.)

Importantly, however, these changes aren’t set in stone; Republicans may continue to contest them in court. At the very least, GOP legislative leaders in Wisconsin have already appealed that decision to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, and Republicans say they plan to take the Pennsylvania decision to the U.S. Supreme Court.
