Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 11, 2021

Josh Kovensky: Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) of Florida has proven himself exceptional in a crowded field, taking arguably the most blasé and reckless approach to COVID-19 of any state executive during the latest phase of the pandemic.

But in the evil minds of republicans, that means he's the best.

Why do you think he's the #2 contender for the republican nomination? Because he's demonstrating all the qualities they love - stupidity, cruelty, vindictiveness, ignorance, stubbornness, and paranoid conspiracies.

The only one who does it better right now is trump, which is why trump is still the cult's #1 love.

PS - either desantis is so dumb he doesn't remember ordering ventilators, or he's so dishonest that he's lying about it because he's afraid ordering ventilators means he's not trumpy enough, or his staff is starting to go rogue and is trying to save lives behind his back and against his efforts to kill more floridians.

Well "worst" is a relative term. And is it really fair to limit the definition as to who is "worst" to recent governors? I mean I am sure if we went through the long history of American governors we might find somebody whose record of service indicates that they would have been an even worse Covid Governor than DeathSentence. Sarah Palin comes to mind. I just want us to be fair.

The ventilators and breathing devices were requested by local/county officials, not by or through the state.

I think the title only refers to current sitting governors in office during this Covid pandemic.

I would pay big money to see a ------------ Ron.

If he's really that bad, why haven't Patriots try to kidnap him?

Correction: I'd heard a news report saying what I wrote above, but I found another conflicting report:

A health administration official confirms the Strategic National Stockpile sent 200 ventilators and 100 high-flow nasal cannula kits to the state of Florida "earlier this week." The SNS sends equipment when it receives requests from states and their health departments, according to the official.

But the Governor's office evidently was not in the loop according to their spokesperson.

Ron has an evil lust for power. He wants to run in 2024 but if Trump runs he wants the number two spot so he can't afford to offend Trump. It is not Trump's boots that he licks...he aims higher.

Desantis places ambition before everything else, he wants to be President and he will say and do anything to enable that on the Trump path to victory. He is running into resistance by Floridians who don't like the fact that we lead the nation in COVID deaths. I think he will have a very hard time moving to that office with his history of death.

Labels won't matter in the direction the Republican Party is planning to take America because we will cease to be a constitutional republic.

We have to stop pretending otherwise.

Here in Texas, som of us are pretty convinced Abbott should hold this (apparently) coveted spot.

Gregg Abbott isn't out of the running. It's a cage match to the death right now to see who can sink the lowest level of depravity.

Then there's always the possibility of an outlier out-depraving both of them.

Hey remember when there were a bunch of idiot conservatives all over the place on here when COVID started and they were banned or left for saying it was no big deal, just like the flu, and wouldn't spread?

Maybe that's why he is being recalled.

#17 | Posted by madbomber at 2021-08-12 02:23 PM | Reply

Florida law doesn't allow a recall of the governor, stupid

Add that to your list errors and falsehoods

Just for a different perspective.

They are ramping up the smear campaign against one of the best governors ever.
