    Joe Biden doesn't even know The Pledge of Allegiance.

    That's pretty weak, and unfortunately typical of the out of context twittering that goes on.
    He wasn't saying the pledge (notice no hand on chest).
    To help you out, here's a transcript of his remarks so you can rest easier:

    Donald Trump that he has a deeply flawed and divisive view of the United States, this nation and the job he holds. Think about what he’s saying. He’s saying, if you live in a state like Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, states with Democratic governors, you’re not his problem. He has no obligation to you. He’s not responsible for you as president, your family or your wellbeing. I don’t see the presidency that way. I don’t pledge allegiance to red states of America or blue states of America, I pledge allegiance to the United States of America. One nation, indivisible under God. For real. I’m running as a proud Democrat, but I’m not going to govern as a Democratic president, I’m going to govern as president.
    Edit: it occurs to me that if you pulled that off Trump's twitter feed (I see his picture there) that we really do need a new president if this one's got time to tweet crap like that out instead of focusing on his office and duties.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Lol...he was most definitely attempting to quote the Pledge of Allegiance to back up his stance that he's a uniter...and he botched it. Joe gonna Joe

    I've gotten used to this, personally. i like it. Keeps this shit from cluttering the board.


    Also, all signs point to a decision today on charging (likely NOT charging) the officers who shot Breonna Taylor. Stay safe everyone, because the peaceful protesting that intensifies will not be isolated to Louisville if that is the case.

    Today's comic relief.

    It might be the "deep state" are actually right wing nut jobs that work at Redstate, planted in the infectious disease offices.
    Guy actually worked for Fauci. Maybe this is why some of you guys that follow that website are confused about the virus:

    An internal communications staffer at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases ― the federal agency headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci ― said he will retire after a news report outed him as a right-wing blogger who alleged the coronavirus crisis is a “massive fraud.”

    Bill Crews has announced “his intention to retire,” NIAID spokesperson Kathy Stover told HuffPost in an email Tuesday. News of the decision followed a Daily Beast report published Monday that unmasked him as “streiff,” the pseudonym he uses on Twitter and conservative blog RedState, which he was secretly managing.

    In his tweets and RedState blog posts, Crews regularly bashes Fauci, the top infectious disease expert on the White House coronavirus task force, and the government’s response to a pandemic he characterized as a “scare.”

    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Unfortunately for Muskie, there will not be a game on Election Night to distract us.

    In fact, Election Day is now a dead day (no games OR practice OR recruiting) on the NCAA calendar.
