Forgotten 80s Mystery Click
Yesterday I mentioned "Simple Mind's other hit," thinking they only had two. I forgot they had a third. So this is a real Forgotten 80s Mystery Click on my end. Here's their other other hit.
Forgotten 80s Mystery Click
Simple Minds' other -- and I'd say, better -- hit
Relatedly, Thompson Twins managed a couple of hits just before they were banished to the outer darkness of VH-1 oldies shows (and then disappeared forever) one of which is in in the same mock-religious vein as Simple Mind's lesser-known song

Wow: the Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan combined to push more Deadly Disinformation about covid to choke Brian Stelter
Greg Price:
Justice Breyer says that there were "750 million new covid cases yesterday"
There are 330 million people who live in America which means everyone apparently got covid twice in the last 24 hours

As Phil Kerpen said: they know literally nothing. These, the GigaSolons who arrogate to themselves the power to decide our fates for us, because we're not smart enough to.

A Brief Comparison of the Establishment's and Base's View of the GOP Hierarchy

What the Base thinks the GOP Hierarchy is:

1. The Establishment
2. Insiders and Major Donors
3. Lobbyists and Corporate Interests
4. The Base Voters

What the Establishment knows the GOP Hierarchy is:

1. The Establishment
2. Insiders and Major Donors
3. Lobbyists and Corporate Interests
4. Saudi Princes Loaded With Hookers and Blow
5. Illegal immigrant children
6. The parents of illegal immigrant children
7. Cousins of the parents illegal immigrant children
8. The pot dealer of the cousins of the parents of illegal immigrant children
9. The Corn Lobby
10. The Corn farmers
11. The corn. The actual stalks of fucking corn
12. The Ex-Im Bank
13. The Bank of America
14. Citibank
15. Banksy
16. Right-leaning Independent voters
17. Left-leaning Independent voters
18. "Our Democratic Friends across the aisle"
19. That wayward lad who shot Reagan who seems "persuadable"
20. People who haven't voted for a Republican since 1960
21. People who are barred from voting Republican because they were convicted of a felony
22. People who are barred from voting Republican because they were convicted of a felony and are also foreigners and also dead
23. Mohammad Atta
24. Other foreign terrorists
25. The illegal immigrant children of foreign terrorists
26. A stalk of corn once touched by the illegal immigrant children of foreign terrorists

and finally:

27. The base, aka "The Garbage People Who Embarrass Us So"

You see, it's all a difficult political balancing act.
