And that is really saying something. I’ll start with the very last line and then work forward.

Do you really think this man will ever say anything positive about Republicans? It’s from The Financial Times in England and this is its title: “US Republicans no longer understand business”. What dullards these people are! Here’s how the article starts.
A schism has opened up between the Republican party and US business. It began last month when Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines and other large companies condemned a Republican-sponsored law that would restrict voting in Georgia. American Airlines and Dell then objected to a similar proposed law in Texas. Mitch McConnell, Republican Senate leader, warned the companies to “stay out of politics”. Marco Rubio called them “woke corporate hypocrites”.
These people have not the slightest idea what is going on right before their eyes. Anyone who believes that there had been “a Republican-sponsored law that would restrict voting in Georgia” is so dense they should be sacked on the spot for being too stupid to follow anything of more complexity than a six-piece jigsaw puzzle. And anyone who subscribes to the paper is almost certainly just as dumb if they base their decisions on what they read.
