While technically correct that network calls are projections and not official.... lol at "Networks don't get to decide the election. Courts do." Because you can't win the people. Maybe he'll melt down even more.

 

 

 

 

I know I already commented on this, but that comment really gets under my skin.

 

Saying the courts decide elections is like saying the refs decide the game.

 

The refs enforce the rules, but literally one of the worst outcomes of a game is when people see the refs as having decided the game. That usually means they blew a call and cost a team the game.

It's tempting to be cynical and treat Biden's win as nothing more than drop of water in an ocean of waste given our current crises, but the fact that his campaign overcame relentless misinformation, state-sponsored propaganda, the electoral college, rampant voter suppression, foreign intervention etc. to garner more votes than any presidential candidate in the nation's history AND elect the first female VP is unbelievably inspiring.  It feels like time for a genuine celebration, as this is the first bit of real hope that I've felt in quite some time.  Way to fucking go America!!!

And first female President. Calling it now.

 

As @Commissar SFLUFAN and others have speculated, Biden will finish about 3.5 years (or less) of his term, and step aside so Kamala becomes President, giving her just enough time to launch her 2024 campaign.

You know, everyone's talking about PA, GA, NV and AZ... but why the fuck haven't they called NC for Trump? That's been bugging me for days.


They started counting absentee ballots postmarked on Election day today. Ballots have until the 12th to come in. It used to be the 6th, but they extended it this year

Just tossed $100 at Ossoff and $100 to Warnock. Let's lock this shit up so we can get some real changes made without being held back by Mitch and Graham. 

 

Yeah - I'll send my donations soon enough.

 

And I'll check to see when the phonebanking begins :p
