In case you missed it: Monday was the Wheeling Intelligencer’s annual self-congratulatory editorial day
Don't they realize how self-serving this is?
We see these editorials a couple of times a year. Two are definite: one in August on the Intelligencer's birthday and one next month for the News-Register's. (Addditionally, there are usually one or two self-congratulatory pieces during the rest of the year.) They all say the same thing about putting reader's first, . . .
“No one, no one, who has lost the trust of the American people should ever serve as our president.”
Here was West Virginia's Shelley Moore Capito speaking at the 2016 Republican National Convention:

Baseball on the cheap (part 37)
The 1916 Philadelphia Athletics had a .235 winning percentage which is the worst-ever season in baseball’s modern era. As of today, the 2020 Pittsburgh Pirates have won four games out of nineteen for a .211 winning percentage.

We’ve seen Manchin’s perspective -- does either Senator Capito or Representative McKinley have anything to say about Trump’s attempt to sabotage the USPS?

Yesterday’s AP headline:
Trump admits he’s blocking postal cash to stop mail-in votes
And here was the lede:
President Donald Trump frankly acknowledged Thursday that he’s starving the U.S. Postal Service of money in order to make it harder to process an expected surge of mail-in . . .
Racism, Sharia Law, and Trumpy Bears
Not much subtlety here
The “suburban housewife” will be voting for me. They want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood. Biden would reinstall it, in a bigger form, with Corey Booker in charge! @foxandfriends @MariaBartiromo— Donald J. Trump . . .
