Insanity Wrap needs to know: What’s more fun than watching the progressive Radical Left go after the corporatist Establishment Left?
Answer: Absolutely nothing we can report on in a family-friendly blog.
Before we get to the sordid details, a quick preview of today’s Wrap:
- CNN drops the #DefundThePolice narrative just long enough to call the police on James O’Keefe
- You’re gonna love Janet Yellen’s Woke Treasury Department
- The Daily Mail accidentally proves that lockdowns don’t work while complaining about a lack of lockdowns
And so much more.
Shall we begin?
Irony So Thick You Could Carve a Tribute to Irony Out of It
CNN calling the police on James O’Keefe after pushing the defund police narrative all year long is just epic 😭

‘Suppression media!’: Trump slams CNN over boss Jeff Zucker’s hacked conference calls in which he tells staff not to ‘normalize Trump’s erratic behavior’ – as network reports Project Veritas to cops for ‘spying on them’
All lefties hate the police, right up until they want someone arrested for the crime of revealing them to be total crapweasels.
Nothing to See Here, Move Along
Policy-wise, it’s difficult to imagine anything better than what Donald Trump has given us these last four years — realistically, anyway.
Personnel-wise, the picture is less rosy.
There wasn’t nearly enough swamp-draining, something that should have been a top project from Day One. In particular, Trump’s taste in attorneys general has been nothing short of tragic.
Insanity Wrap understands that’s in large part because Trump faced the same handicap Ronald Reagan did, particularly in his first term: They were both outsiders largely disliked by the establishment of their own party.
Outsiders hoping to make waves rarely make friends with insiders whose main concern is to not rock the boat.
And so both Trump and Reagan had to choose more than a few establishment types to fill sensitive positions, taken from a limited selection including insiders hostile to their reformist agendas.
Even so, both presidents managed to make great changes in short order, and Insanity Wrap remains in awe of those accomplishments, especially given the crooked timber Trump and Reagan both were required to work with.
There’s Nothing More Pathetic Than an Aging Hipster

Insanity Wrap gets the exact same headache every time an incoming Democrat president begins putting his cabinet together.
It’s a frustration migraine caused by ambitious lefties who believe their job is to accomplish every single got-dam thing in the world except for what their actual job entails.
Treasury’s job is to see to it that the correct amount of money comes in from the correct sources, and then to see to it that the correct amount of money goes back out to the correct recipients.
But there isn’t a whole lot of overblown authoritarian progressive fun to be had in that, and so we get crapola like the stuff Janet Yellen just spewed.
Insanity Wrap will be enjoying 600 milligrams of Ibuprofen as the side dish to our Bloody Mary breakfast.
This Is Not a Sane World, Exhibit #1,000,006
It’s a well-known, settled science, factual piece of data that COVID-19 germs can spread through solid cheek tissue, but are unable to pass through a wind instrument shield held just under or just inside the mouth.
On reflection, Insanity Wrap will make this morning’s Bloody a double.
And that’ll be 800mg of Ibuprofen, please.
There’s Nothing Hotter Than a Little Blue-on-Blue Action
He will never be a legitimate President.
He was not a legitimate nominee.
No one wanted him, not even Democrats.

Some unhinged Trumper with insane theories about how the Illuminati or whoever used space rays to put Joe Biden in the White House?
Nope, just another disappointed Bernie Sanders supporter — and if you hit Twitter for any length of time, Insanity Wrap assures you you’ll find plenty more just like Sabrina here.
If alleged President-elect Joe Biden is sworn into the Oval Office next month, people like Sabrina will go extra-crazy once they see just how corporatist and establishment Biden’s team is — just like Barack Obama’s was.
The difference is, Obama had the racial and progressive cred to get a pass from his party’s far left.
Biden doesn’t, and won’t.
The Craziest Person in the World (Today)
Florida becomes the third state to reach one million COVID-19 cases after Texas and California – and Governor DeSantis STILL refuses to order a lockdown
The craziest person in the world today is the one who can’t see the problem with this headline.
In case that person is reading this, Insanity Wrap will explain.
California, Texas, and Florida are the three largest U.S. states by population, and in that order.
All have now reached one million (reported) COVID-19 infections.
Isn’t it weird that the three states with the most people have the most cases?
Insanity Wrap will tell you what is weird.
California has some of the strictest lockdown measures, Florida some of the loosest and shortest-lasting, and Texas is somewhere in between the two extremes.
Why, it’s almost as though lockdowns don’t work.
Here’s Another Damn Thing We’re Supposed to Be Concerned About
The OK sign is like 2+2 in Orwell’s Oceania.
2+2 could sometimes equal 3, sometimes 5. On occasion, 2+2 might even add up to 4.
Every outcome of 2+2 depended on the Party’s needs at the moment.
Same thing with the OK sign.
It’s a white superiority signal when some people use it, but not others, all depending on what the Party requires at the moment.
Your job, gentle reader, is to smile and love Big Brother.
One More Thing…
It’s been said that Joe Biden was Barack Obama’s insurance policy against assassination.
But Insanity Wrap wouldn’t be surprised to learn that there isn’t an underwriter in the world who would take on a policy insuring Biden against Kamala Harris.
That’s a Wrap for today.
Come back tomorrow for another Insanity Wrap…
…assuming we make it that long.
