The Minnesota Nice version of collegiality

Or, in other words, ratfuckers gonna fuck rats.

A day after it was revealed that GOP state Sen. Dave Senjem tested positive for COVID-19 after attending a Nov. 5 party caucus, news broke that Republican senators and staffers were informed in a Tuesday memo that “a number of [GOP Senate] members and staff have been diagnosed with COVID-19.”

DFLers were not informed of the rash of cases on the other side of the aisle.

I wonder how many of the Republicans saw this as an opportunity to mingle with their Democratic colleagues and spread the virus before the fact that they were plague ratfuckers got out?

    In other news, Joe Biden’s popular vote lead is now larger than the entire population of Minnesota or any of the 27 smaller states.

    Somewhat OT: A comeuppance?

    Microbiologist Didier Raoult, a larger-than-life figure in French science who gained global prominence for his controversial research touting the effects of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID, is to appear before a disciplinary panel. Raoult is accused of breaching medical ethics by physicians from France’s Infectious Diseases Society.

    @4 But the snatch snatcher is still at it ,he is trying to claim credit for the vaccine because it was developed on his watch .

    @davidc1 #5: Calling Trump’s term in office a “watch” is a considerable stretch. He mainly watched the little white ball roll down the fairway, and watched the tv ratings of his favorite sycophants in the media.

    I say, that’s a bit harsh.

    I mean, for all their flaws, rats have repeatedly been shown to have a strong sense of empathy.

    This reminds me of the identical situation in PA — except that time it was only one GOP rep who got sick and told his caucus but not the other side’s.
