Regarding Flynn's deranged rant: Seriously! Don't just read the blurb, also listen carefully to Flynn's disjointed rant. He sounds like a totally insane child with a vocabulary. Imagine if a former US NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR from the Obama administration (who had been pardoned by Obama) said something as deranged as that but from the far left, such as, "9-11 was a Dick Cheney inside job so he could start a war"? We would never hear the end of it. Right wing media would go into Defcon 1 mode for at least two weeks. But really, is there anything on the far left that even compares with Flynn's crazy rant in terms of pure craziness? How many people other than Flynn actually believe this stuff? Does Flynn actually believe this stuff or is he just stoking the craziest crazies in their base? Maybe this is just maintenance stoking of the crazy base? Really, I can't even process this.

Charlie- sorry to hear of your illness. Your vaccine regimen is not in vain, will likely hold down the seriousness but still frustrating. Keep up your insights- subscribing to Bulwark was one of the smartest things I’ve done.

You see Charlie, the Anti-Vaxers were right all along: They GIVE you COVID, along with a wristband signifying you are an A-lister into the gates of Club Hell! Wait! They didn't said that? Oh! My bad

Feel better. Think of your recovery as a week-long repentance for vaxing.

I do regret your wife's offended sensibility (?) to the term, but I think 'polishing of turds' is one of the best, most apt descriptions ever.

On par with 'loonbucket fuckwittery', which I also use frequently.

Thank you!

Take care Charlie. Hope you feel better.

I’ll bite. What exactly is it supposed to mean when a vaccine is “gain of function”? That doesn’t even make sense.

Good luck, Charlie. I hope you kick it quick. Before 6:25pm Sunday would be convenient.

Charlie,

Terrible news about having Covid. Haven’t you had it already? And you vaccinated ++? Please take care and get well soon! You will be missed (can’t believe I’m saying that to a Conservative former radio host that I couldn’t listen to when I lived in WI)!! TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!

Hope you get over this soon, Charlie. Selfishly, I must say, I will miss you if you have to lay low!

The hearing was a total sh*tshow, but in fairness, depending on your definition, smartphones certainly existed in 1999. The first PalmPilot debuted in 1996 -- and earlier versions of that things using touchscreen technology were in existence as early as 1992.

Hell no, no implants ever! I can get an annual COVID shot just as I do a flu shot.

Charles Grassley is indeed an octogenarian. And in 6 months he’ll be a nonagenarian.
