[Wisconson state Sen. Andre] Jacque, a Republican from De Pere, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Monday he tested positive for COVID-19 at the end of last week and went to a hospital for pneumonia. ... Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, Jacque has pushed for legislation that bars COVID-19 mitigation orders like face mask mandates or vaccine requirements. He tested positive for COVID-19 just a couple days after testifying at a packed hearing in the state Capitol without wearing a face mask.

Too bad our country has so many theocratic morons that if one falls, there are 1,000 more to take the spot.

Seems odd that it's not just the blue states anymore that are seeing the Covid surge. Even more odd, that those who do not support masks or vaccines are getting infected at an alarming rate.

Wonder what's up with that?

If he has pneumonia and is in bad shape, I'd call it:

Too soon dead, too late smart.

I think if I were a Republican I would consider that following the leadership of Donald Trump is very bad for your health. Worse than cigarettes.

Rep. Shortwell wants prayers for his fellow legislator. OK then. Rep. Shortwell must be a believer in God and in the power of prayer. Too bad he missed the point of Cain's complaint: "Am I my brother's keeper". If he had listened to, thought about and acted on that message, Shortwell would have ensured that his colleague got vaccinated and wore a mask in indoor group settings...

Sad. "new baby in his family that includes six children"

Swing and a miss for Darwin. Those defective genes have already spread.

So how many of the people who contracted covid but argued against masks/vaccines in the past have come out and said they made a mistak? Very few. Want to know why? Because they are the literal embodiment of "Give me liberty or give me death". Dems have no moral compass when it comes to the masses (it's only about their individual opinions and anyone who thinks like them can be part of their club and anyone who doesn't is a demon) and have no idea what loyalty and pride in one's country actually means. So you can't possibly understand what people mean when they say they would rather have death than someone to take away their freedoms. Since Liberals can't understand that kind of commitment to valued principles (because they've been spoiled and entitled so long to understand what freedom means anyways), it's incredibly hard for any of you to understand why those Reps are accepting of getting covid. Asking for prayers doesn't mean they have changed their mind, it just means they understand they got sick and hope their faith heals them.

Technically, Liberals today are no different than the Capital in the Hunger Games. All those districts who have no freedoms or anything are inconsequential to you because, hey, your little bubble is perfect with all your plastic surgery, expensive luxuries, and little dogs and you have everything you could ever want, so those districts must just love working in the rural lands knowing they are providing people like you a fantastical lifestyle. That's exactly how American Liberals are seen today. You are already trying to change America to be just like that because you have already, and not a single one of you can argue against this because it is 100% backed up by the 2016 election results, want to ensure only the votes from big cities count by trying to get rid of the EC. I mean, you can't write something more illustrative of today's American Liberals if you tried.

If people want to choose freedom or death, that's not a bad thing no matter how much Liberals whine about it and say groups of people shouldn't be free. Liberals want a different country than America, that's the real issue. And there's no reason they shouldn't get it. But this isn't the way to go about it.

#7 F&%K YOU! Have you, or these people, ever heard of "the common good." That's what this is about. Hiding behind my freedumbs and keeping the pandemic going and hospitals flooded with patients is on those contrarian whiners.

If they had any leaders with a spine, they would have been lead toward doing something for the common good, as their good book says.

Not even close.
They are the literal embodiment of:
Give me the liberty to spread the disease to others, or I'll spread the disease to others.

No because they're the party of lies and refusing to take accountability.

If you admit liberals were right about covid, then it means conservatives were wrong. This means liberals might be right about many more things - climate change, the drug war, gay marriage, trickle down economics - and conservatives were wrong.

When the only remaining conservative principle is - oppose liberals on everything - then they have to stick to that principle even when choking to death on their own mucus in a hospital bed.

Anyone who considers being mandated to protect yourself and you loved ones from the Corona Virus to be an infringement on their freedoms or liberty is an idiot deserving whatever happens to them. The freedom to get infected and to infect others is NOT freedom in any normal sense of the word.

Another fully vaccinated democrat (Jesse Jackson) is in the hospital with Covid. Y'all make this ---- too easy.

Is your point that he should have not been vaccinated?

A fully-vaccinated person getting COVID is a tragedy. An un-vaccinated person getting COVID is a farce.

At least he tried. Better than the apathy you promote.

Yeah, something like that. I mean, Johnson and Johnson is only 70% effective, which is still really good. But that's a significant chance that you'll still get it. Not sure which vaccine Jackson got.
