Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks as always to Pirate’s Cove, Bacon Time, The Other McCain, and Flappr for the Rule Five links! And please, if you can, toss a little help to our blogger pal Doug Hagin over at The Daley Gator.

Now here’s a genius for you.

Green Party member U.S. Senate candidate for New Jersey Christina Amira Khalil went viral after posting a theory to social media that the earthquake that rocked New York and New Jersey on Friday was caused by climate change.

Prominent social media users mocked the post, which also received an X “Community Note” fact check providing the real reason for the event.

Khalil took so much criticism for the post that she ended up deleting it and switching her account to “protected” mode so that the public couldn’t view her posts any longer. 

Following the 4.8 magnitude earthquake that was felt New York, New Jersey, and other northeast U.S. states, Khalil posted on X, “I experienced my first earthquake in NJ. We never get earthquakes. The climate crisis is real. The weirdest experience ever.”

The aspiring politician’s theory went viral only hours after it was posted, gaining millions of views thanks to the help of big accounts sharing it for the sake of mocking it on their feeds.

I don’t know what I could say that would make this nitwit look any dumber than she already does.  But an X/Twitter commenter, Paul Szypula, summed it up very nicely.

It’s true, folks; just when you think these people couldn’t possibly get any dumber, someone goes and drops the bar lower still.  At this point, it’s somewhere around the bottom of the Marianas Trench.

It’s belaboring the obvious to point out that this idiot is in no way fit for a position as Third Assistant Dogcatcher in Bumfuck, Lower Slobovia, but I’ll point it out anyway.  She’s beyond parody – and nuts.
