Heil, CDCitler

“…I think everyone is tired, and wearing a mask is — it can be a pain,” [White House COVID response coordinator* Jeffrey] Zients told CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper.

“But we’re getting there. And the light at the end of the tunnel is brighter and brighter. Let’s keep up our guard. Let’s follow the CDC guidance. And the CDC guidance across time will allow vaccinated people more and more privileges to take off that mask.”

I am trying to come to grips with a nation so supine that it actually awaits its (unelected) rulers’ permission to breathe.

*Bonus: we’re paying whatever inflated salary this made-up sinecure carries.
