We named the new variants of COVID-19 in honor of the Republican governors.

COVID-19 is wreaking havoc across the southern United States right now, including Florida, and that’s in large part because we haven’t all been pulling in the same direction to save so many people (and fetuses, mind you) as possible. Instead, we’ve moved into separate pro-human and pro-COVID camps, and it goes without saying that DeSantis is the king of COVID Country.

Well, CNN’s Jim Acosta has noticed, and he came up with a great idea: Instead of using boring Greek letters, why not name the new COVID-19 variants after the Republican governors who have been its biggest boosters. ?

For non-tweeters:

ACOSTA: “The other day, and we talked about this afternoon, an 11-month-old girl in Texas, another very affected state, had to be airlifted 150 miles away for treatment because hospital beds are full in her city. . People shouldn’t have to die so that some politicians can own libraries. They do not own anyone, but they may end up owning the pandemic, because they are prolonging it. Perhaps it is time to start naming these new variants that can emerge after them. Instead of the delta variant, why not call it ‘DeSantis variant’? We could sell beer koozies that say ‘Don’t Florida My Fauci’ and use the money to help pay for all the funerals that will take place in the next few days. “

I love. And if the World Health Organization disagrees, I don’t see why the rest of us can’t adopt this system; After all, “Delta” is already somewhat close to “DeSantis.”

“Oh shit. I think I may have been exposed to DeSantis.”

“The COVID variant or the governor? Either way, you’ll need to take a long hot Silkwood shower immediately. “

I know I know The name isn’t that likely to stick, but that’s probably what Rick Santorum thought too. And we all saw how it worked.

Internet, go do that voodoo you do so well. We can make DeSantis’s name notorious, or more infamous than it is now, anyway.
