Sadly, it looks like DeSantis decided to take Trump’s bait and fight him for the affections of the pouty MAGA crowd. He’ll never pry them away from Trump, so I don’t see the point. Trying to be an alternative Trump is a bad strategy. You can never out-Trump Trump.
It’s disappointing that DeSantis is chickening out of challenging Trump head on. Trump clearly has no such scruples (see earlier post).
OK, I heard Youngkin might run. Let’s see if he manages to keep his balls from shriveling at the sight of Trump.

"Florida was doing fantastically. You had a governor named Rick Scott who did a very good job. Even Charlie Crist, a Democrat, did a good job – and he had very good numbers." pic.twitter.com/KMB0nF1AKV
Here’s another illustration of why deep focus is amazing. I had to create a document that my university will pay me $600 to make. I hate the idea of making it. I detest that kind of work. But I do want the $600. We are given 2,5 months to complete it because it’s a very complicated bastard with tons of fussy columns and moronic bureaucratic vocab. But I know that I’ll hate my life if I spend a lot of time bogged down in this document.
So I prepared. Dressed up to the nines. Did my hair. Did an elaborate makeup. These are the things that help me get in the zone and that won’t work for anybody else but I found that they really work for me. I know it’s very bizarre to sit in my office alone in this fancy getup but guess what? I did that document in one hour forty-two minutes. Sent it out and was told it’s perfect and all I need to do is sign the paperwork for my payment.
To corral the unbearable affects you first need to know what they are. Here’s what we do. Spend 15-20 minutes a day alone with your thoughts. Track down the moment when you start feeling uncomfortable, bored, anxious, guilty, etc. Then write down what happened right before the uncomfortable moment. What thoughts, images, words, voices, etc passed through your brain right before that moment.
As a result of the exercise repeated over the course of a few days, you’ll have a list of your unbearable affects. Then we’ll talk about the next step.
