WHO ya gonna call?

From Salon:

More than a dozen U.S. health experts based at the headquarters of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva provided real-time information about the new coronavirus in China last year, according to a new report.

President Donald Trump announced last week that the U.S. would stop providing funding to WHO, because it allegedly “missed the call” by not sounding the alarm “months earlier.” Trump, who also accused WHO of being “China-centric,” has ramped up his rhetoric against the organization after numerous media reports revealed that the president and his advisers did not head warnings about the emerging pandemic from intelligence agencieshealth expertseconomists and even top White House aides. The president continued to downplay the threat publicly in an apparent attempt to calm the stock market.

Michael Steele Puts the Hat in Phathead

From TALKING POINTS MEMO:

Michael Steele introduced a new fashion accessory at today’s Republican National Committee meeting in Kansas City, when, like almost everyone in the audience, the RNC Chairman donned a bright-red “Fire Pelosi” cap. It was something of a theme at the event. And a “Fire Nancy Pelosi” bus tour will begin this fall.

What is it with Michael Phathead Steele and hats? From POLITICO (4/30/09):

Republican National Chairman Michael Steele said Thursday that despite Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter’s recent departure, the GOP remains a party of many hats because “that’s how we roll.”

“I look at it this way,” Steele explained to the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “The four of us are, let’s say for the sake of this example, all wearing a hat that says ‘GOP.’ All right?”

The Grincheney Revisited

Hey kids! I was too damned lazy xI couldn’t think of a damned thing to photoshopxxI thought we’d start a new Raisin tradition! As we’ve all seen, Deadeye Dick Cheney hasn’t changed much in the last year, so I thought we could have another Grincheney sing-along, just like last year. Pour yourself a nice cup of hot cocoa or some left-over eggnog, put on those new fuzzy socks you found under the Christmas tree, and snuggle up! Let’s sing!
