Just when you thought the Kempster couldn’t get any more clueless, he surprises with an epic slam-dunk of stupid.

Again, Delta cancel all Delta flights to and from the six smaller airports you serve in Georgia, and make all flights in and out of Atlanta have a three stopover minimum.

I see the podiatric target practice continues apace.

Proceed.

From wiki…“Bastian began his career as an [auditor] in New York City at Price Waterhouse, now. During a 1981 annual review, he uncovered a $50 million [fraud] scheme involving ad powerhouse J. Walter Thompson. This prompted a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission investigation, leaving many PWC executives with marred careers. A few years later, Bastian was named partner at age 31.”

Mr. Bastian certainly seems capable of judging for himself what’s behind that law.

You know, Governor Kemp, they don’t really need to address specific points in the bill because the Republican embrace of the Big Lie makes you a bigoted fringe extremist group as far as the rest of the world is concerned and they buy more plane tickets than you do–pissing Republicans off is now good business and good publicity. The worst that’s going to happen to Delta is some mouth-breathing belligerent MAGA chuds will choose a different airline to travel on–no doubt Delta considers that, too, a win.

I propose a separate fare surcharge labeled “Governor Kemp Tax Increase” on the affected flights.
