The show this week is the season finale, so to speak. No show next week as it is a long weekend in the United States. I need a little break to catch up on some other items, so this is a good time for that. This week I empty out the mailbag and address the complaints that have come in since the last time. The title for the show reflects the fact that the show has no theme. It is just a grab bag of topics that have accumulated since the last mailbag show back in the winter.
Something I did not notice while compiling the show was that I have not received any Covid questions or comments in a while. For a long time it was close to a daily occurrence, then it settled into the same pattern as other topics. Looking back, the last Covid e-mail was back in in the winter. That means the topic has pretty much fallen out of the news cycle now. There are efforts to revive the franchise but rebooting Covid is going to be a tough sell, even to people on the Left.
Next up for a starring role on the big stage is the election. You can see the shift already, as we head into the unofficial start of summer. Ukraine is starting to slide down the page for the New York Times and the Washington Post. This is no doubt this is coming at the direction of the party, who may be figuring out that it is a loser issue. The big spending bill that just passed signals the end of the line for the Ukraine story in Washington as events on the ground turn negative for them.
I have to say, this may be a hilarious election season from a dissident perspective, as it is nothing but bad news for the uniparty. The GOP has managed to stock their ticket with zombies from party central, but those zombies will have no choice but to say mean things about Washington while campaigning. Of course, Trump will be out there on the campaign trail and you know he will be slinging mud at McConnell. It means nothing, but it should make for good theater.
The real action is on the other side. I fear I may blow a funny fuse watching the inner party explain how inflation, gas shortages and a declining stock market are the fault of white supremacists invading Ukraine. Even better will be watching Jean-Pierre, the black lesbian Biden spokesbot read these lines from her script. I though Shark Eyes Psaki was peak ridiculous in that job, but then they managed to find another gear and give us someone dumber that old Jen.
It is going to be a rough period economically and a lot of our people will suffer as a result, so we need to avoid being callous. We also have to avoid getting sucked into the madness we see in convectional politics. The best way to do that is to enjoy the absurdity of it and the ridiculousness of the people. If I were to make a banner for the Dissident Right convention, it would feature the band playing on the deck of the Titanic as it went under. That is our best approach to the current crisis.
