Republicans have pressured Prznint Stupid to abandoned his totally bananas suggestion that the election be delayed indefinitely. Well, mostly. He never completely abandons anything his gut tells him to do.
Anyway, Hair Füror, in all his fascist glory, has decidered’ed that the election must be called on November 3, even if bazillions of ballots remain uncounted.
“I’ve been watching elections. And they say the ‘projected winner’ or the ‘winner of the election’—I don’t want to see that take place in a week after November 3 or a month or, frankly, with litigation and everything else that can happen, years.”
And, thanks to the Trump-Virus raging unabated, there’s probably going to be more voting by absentee ballot than ever, and so we are not going to know who won the election on election night. And Lord Damp Nut likes it like that!
The WaPo tells us that the cultist Post Master General Louis DeJoy that Prznint Stupid installed has instituted policies that “could undermine their ability to deliver ballots on time for the November election.”
As we’ve discussed before, Lord Damp Nut cannot cancel the election, but his new idea is to make votes counted AFTER Election Day are illegitimate, regardless of when the envelopes are postmarked.
So you want to know why Nancy-Smash is being so adamant about the Trump-Virus relief bill and not willing to break it up into bits? It’s because money for the USPS is in it which the Republicans will never approve without leverage.
You’re goddamn right it is political: the GOP has made helping ordinary citizens political.
