No World Series game has ever been played in 100 degree weather

Until yesterday:

When I tuned into the game last night at 8 p.m. Eastern time, it was 103 degrees in Los Angeles. And it was outdoors, so there was no dome for relief.

One reason it’s never been that hot in a World Series before?

It’s LATE OCTOBER FOR GOD’S SAKE!

She predicted 97 degrees. It was 103. That sucks.

But the krap koddled klown chosen by pump truppets says climate change is a Chinese ruse designed to steal coal mining jobs, and our friends on the right* say we should keep politics out of the World Series.

(*A reminder: They aren’t our friends. They’re trying to kill us.)

Babyman is going to screw this up, too

Actually, I’m sure he’s responsible for this getting out of control.

The horrific scale of death and destruction is coming into focus, even as the wildfires continue to rage throughout Northern California.

Thirty-one confirmed dead, many of them elderly.

Hundreds still missing on Friday.

Thousands of homes and businesses destroyed, including whole neighborhoods reduced to smoldering rubble.

“We all have suffered a trauma here, and we’re going to be a long time in recovering from this incident,” Santa Rosa Mayor Chris Coursey told reporters.

As authorities continue assessing the damage from the most devastating spate of wildfires to strike the state in modern history, the blazes are burning mostly uncontained — with winds likely to return this weekend, breathing dangerous new life into the deadly arc of flames.

California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection officials said Thursday that some 190,000 acres had been scorched across the state — a collective area nearly the size of New York City — as dangerous conditions spread the fires with frightening speed.

Massive wildfires, one major hurricane after another, record temperatures that keep rising every year.

And the GOP still says climate change doesn’t exist. You think maybe the crimson menace should be dealing with this instead of sending his vice presidential toady to walk out of football games?

One of these things is not like the other

From the mind of the kooky klan kuddler:

“I think now, with what’s happened with the hurricane, I’m gonna ask for a speed up,” he said. “I wanted a speed up anyway, but now we need it even more so. So we need to simplify the tax code, reduce taxes very substantially on the middle class, and make our business tax more globally competitive. We’re the highest anywhere in the world right now.”

What does a hurricane have to do with tax revision? I don’t understand the logic. Give rich people tax cuts so you don’t have to pay for disaster cleanup? This makes no sense.
