And Speaking of Voting…

When fascism comes to the United States, it will be carrying a bible and humping the flag – paraphrasing, of course.

…Lord Damp Nut has a new conspiracy theory he wants us all to know about:

and a lowly spitball flew across the twitterzone:

I think each time he spews out a ridiculous conspiracy theory, I’m going to send back a ridiculous Bond Villain plot.

From the Electoral Vote guy (emphasis mine):

It appears that another downside to opposing vote-by-mail may be emerging, one that we did not anticipate. To wit, vote-by-mail is emerging as a “culture wars” issue among some Trump supporters. Last week, there was a demonstration in Michigan wherein some Republicans burned their vote-by-mail applications so as to show their opposition to the plan. The actions of a few dozen folks are not definitive, but if vote-by-mail comes to be widely viewed as a betrayal of Trumpian principles, like kneeling for the National Anthem, or recycling, or wearing a face mask, then presumably some portion of his base will refuse to request absentee ballots. Then, if there is bad weather, or there are long lines, or there is a flare-up of COVID-19 on Nov. 3, some of those folks will end up not voting. We remind you yet again that Trump won Michigan, where the protest took place, by 10,704 votes in 2016 out of over 4.5 million cast. (Z)

And The WaPo has a hot take:

“If voters remain reluctant to cast ballots in person, November is likely to bring an even more massive wave of voting by mail than what has swept across the country during primary season. That, in turn, means that a close race between President Trump and former vice president Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, in a pivotal state could take days, even weeks, to resolve, election officials across the country are warning.”

So it sounds like it could be a stupid strategy, a super-spreader event, and a long time to count the votes.

Anyway, for shits and giggles, the WaPo has a list of all the 4th Reich who vote by mail.

    Should we start planning for a redux of 2000 when Supremes stepped in, just that one time, again?

    Well, Lord Damp Nut has already pointed out that in the last presidential election foreign countries sent millions of people across the border to illegally vote in person. So using mail-in voting will at least alleviate the illegal immigrant problem.

      There are always subplots and side plots and parodies of Bond villain plots (kind of an appropriate material source, come to think of it) and Marvel comic book plots and DC comic book plots and Edgar Allen Poe short story plots and Shakespearean tragedy plots and pretty much any plot by Christopher Moore, or any Discworld plot or, when you finally run out of ridiculous plots, check rational wiki and wikipedia for conspiracy theories to answer with.
      It would just be too much trouble to transcribe Qultist theories. Those people have lost their grip.

    NJ went to mail-in only for the 7/7 primary. I assume they’ll keep it for November.
    I’ll miss going to the polls. Some fun small talk with the workers. Never a line in lily-white suburbia.
    The Trumpanzees can all burn their ballots for all I care.
