DeSantis is much more anti gay than Trump, which is probably also a factor as most under 30s, even most under 30 Republicans, have at least one non straight friend.

There are rumors that DeSantis is bisexual/gay, so that may be in line with the Aaron Schock type of overcompensating.

Don't tell Lindsay Graham...

So to be clear:

1)  The FBI did not do anything to censor this story, nor did any other government official.

2)  The Biden campaign itself did not do anything to censor the laptop story, even though it would have been well within their rights to do so.

3)  The only action taken by the Biden campaign was to request that Twitter take down five doctored pornographic pictures of Hunter.

4)  Twitter's decision to censor the Hunter Biden story from the platform had nothing to do with the Biden campaign or the government, but was instead based on a bunch of pundits and former intelligence people saying the story had many hallmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign (true then and also true today) and the company's general desire to not become a willing tool for Russian state intelligence in the way it was in 2016.  Which seems perfectly reasonable to me, although they should have just said that rather than using shaky claims to try to justify it within their existing, outdated TOS.

5  The Twitter internal e-mail on the Biden campaign's takedown request for the five pornographic images simply says that it was "handled."  Following the example of WikiLeaks and PizzaGate, since conservatives don't have anything tangible to go with, they're latching onto this one word and all mutually agreeing to pretend Twitter was caught confessing it "handled" the rigging of the entire 2020 election.

6)  Elon Musk is playing along with this.  See the tweet this morning where someone asked him what other elections Twitter "handled" and he said they also rigged the Brazil election.  And his pinned tweet is just the word "handled."  Since he paid $44B only to find out that there was no deep dark secret, just a bunch of information that's been public for years, he now has to save face by pretending he uncovered a grand conspiracy, even when he didn't actually find anything at all.  And the entire right-wing media sphere is just gonna go along with it, because they also want that to be true.



Did I miss anything?

Just Turkey, Azerbaijan, and Georgia. I'm surprised I'm not the only one who's been to Azerbaijan.

Just discovered that Michigan is whiter than Minnesota. Wouldn’t have guessed that tbh.

Wonder how much of that is due to the relatively recent influx of Somali migrants.
I think it is just that Minnesota has a higher immigration rate and is still growing while Michigan population has been stagnant for a while

It supposedly wasn't politically motivated, and looks more like yet another example of "paranoid homeowner terrified of ethnic minority approaching their home decides to shoot first and ask questions hopefully never".  Americans have been well trained to be absolutely petrified of other people.

No, I don't think I would even recognize his music if I heard it.

Abortion Should be : I support a 12 week ban so I would say Illegal In Most Cases given I live in Oregon

In Oregon, like everywhere else, the majority of abortions take place well before 12 weeks. The idea that vast numbers of women are getting late-term abortions (just for funsies I guess?) is a total fantasy. Factually, 6,309 out of the total 7,109 abortions last year in Oregon took place before 12 weeks (89%).
