Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced Monday she tested positive for COVID-19. The mayor said in a tweet she has exhibited no symptoms. “COVID-19 has literally hit home. I have had NO symptoms and have tested positive,” Bottoms, 50, wrote on Twitter. (Tweet) Bottoms’ state of Georgia saw 1,548 new coronavirus cases Monday and 18 deaths, for a total of 97,064 cases and 2,878 deaths. Bottoms, a possible Democratic vice presidential contender for Joe Biden, has been publicly dealing with the fallout from numerous protests in her city after a Black man, Rayshard Brooks, was shot and killed by an Atlanta police officer.

She must have gotten the non-racist version of the virus. But at least there's no chance that Dementia Joe will pick her as VP.

So, the real story here should be that a prominent politician who has covid-19 is completely unaffected, like most of the people who have tested positive. It is truly dangerous to a very small subsection of the population. We could and should have quarantined the vulnerable to protect them while the rest of us got on with our lives. Instead, this catastrophic error is allowed to continue so that a bunch of people who got this completely wrong can continue to pretend they knew what they were doing. And, yes, "Lance Bottoms" does sound like a porn name.

So in other words she had a test that shows positive for everyone who takes it, or miraculously detects everyone who's ever had a common cold.

(Photo) In a Tuesday column, New York Times writer Thomas Friedman suggested that Biden shouldn’t debate Trump unless two conditions were first met:First, Biden should declare that he will take part in a debate only if Trump releases his tax returns for 2016 through 2018.

The former lawmaker quickly pivoted from talking about the virus to talking about gun violence. “These are the same people who want us to accept that more people, including children, will die of gun violence this year in America than in any other developed country, bar none,” O’Rourke said,

Washington state is considering a plan that would give priority to minority and disadvantaged students when schools reopen in the fall following months of closure during the coronavirus pandemic. Like most state chief executives across the country, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee shuttered his state's public schools earlier in the year as part of a coronavirus mitigation plan. States have lately begun considering how they will re-open their schools in the fall, if at all. Education officials across the country have proposed various plans incorporating alternating schedules, "cohorting" of students, and distance learning programs, while others have suggested the entire upcoming school year may consist entirely of virtual classrooms.

Even in perfect conditions with teleprompters to read from, Joe Biden still forgets what he's talking about. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is barely there. Appearing virtually at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers' 2020 Virtual Political Conference on Wednesday, Biden appeared to be reading from a teleprompter when he repeatedly lost his train of thought. "Lonnie knows I believe this every fiber of being, we're opposed," Biden began confidently enough before he seemingly lost his place with the teleprompter. Biden then switched to platitudes about making "it happen" and illuminating "the path forward." "What I propose is, is, it can be done.
