Is it wrong that I did a fist-pump and shouted "YES!!!" when I read that Kayleigh McEnany has tested positive for COVID-19? I'm sorry, I shouldn't wish any disease on anybody, but she really is a loathsome person. Just watch any of her so-called press briefings (because she doesn't really provide any information) and the way she ends them with a dismissive little "You don't deserve to ask us any questions, you're the Enemy Of The People". Having her out of action even for days will be a breath of fresh air.
Could this wave of infections sweeping the Republican ranks right before the election be evidence for divine intervention after all? But no, because then I have to ask myself, where was the fucking divine intervention 4 years ago?
I'm with you on that because infecting the foolish is Darwin's way of cleaning out the gene pool and helping us to evolve and survive. Unfortunately COVID-19 is probably not deadly enough to move the needle at the polls towards reason - this time.
If the mortality rate had been 1 in 10 instead of 1 in 100 then the differential death rate between science denying irrational voters and science heeding rational voters would probably have been enough to give a guaranteed bump of several percent for reason - for a generation or more. But that would have been a huge amount of collateral damage and not something to wish for.
