Draft Day Thoughts Under the Fedora Cam Can? AOC present, Durham surprise, Babylon Bee nails me and another one on the list

Will have no time for news today as from 10 AM till about midnight I’ll be running the draft in my Pursue the Pennant 1969 draft league so here are some random thoughts on random things:

Sports: Was it just a month ago that there were a ton of people arguing that Cam Newton should be the starting QB for the Patriots? It has now been three weeks and two games into the season and not a single team decided that he was good enough to sign. That speaks volumes.


It’s been suggested that AOC’s vote of “present” on funding Israel’s defensive Iron Dome is a sign that she is running for the Senate in NY vs Chuck Schumer. I think it’s actually more likely that Nancy Pelosi wanted as few votes against from Democrats as possible since there is no way that AOC is going to convince any voter who favors Israel that she is in their corner, particularly over Chuckie Schumer.


I was very surprised that John Durham actually produced an indictment in his investigation. I presumed it would just be a report. The real question to me is will there be any more such indictments?


Yesterday because of the draft I had my laptop with me at work for my lunch break and I made the mistake of reading this from the Babylon Bee while I was drinking:

That the Biden administration is allowing yet another false narrative to take root would surprise me if their entire power was not based on false narratives.


Finally I found myself playing with another Atheist on twitter yesterday who assumes all people who believe in God are simple minded. The only thing more laughable than the weakness of his arguments is his casual dismissal of some of the finest minds in history or any mind from the past might actually have insight that he does not.

I’ve added him to my prayer list with the memory that at one time C. S. Lewis was an unbeliever as well. After all he has his whole life to figure it out and who’ll pray for him if I don’t?
