‘It’s Floriduh, Jake’

I saw this story this morning, and frankly it didn’t make much sense to me:

“Mike Bloomberg plans to spend at least $100 million in Florida to help elect Democrat Joe Biden, a massive late-stage infusion of cash that could reshape the presidential contest in a costly toss-up state central to President Trump’s reelection hopes.

“Bloomberg made the decision to focus his final election spending on Florida last week, after news reports that Trump had considered spending as much as $100 million of his own money in the final weeks of the campaign, Bloomberg’s advisers said. Presented with several options on how to make good on an earlier promise to help elect Biden, Bloomberg decided that a narrow focus on Florida was the best use of his money.”

Of all people, Bloomberg must know that A) Lord Damp Nut doesn’t have $100M Ameros in liquid assets to spend, and 2) if LDN did, he wouldn’t spend his own money on anything like that. So what gives?

We get some clarity (speed ahead to the 4:40 mark), where Karl says, in effect that Florida generally gets their count done by midnight. If Trump loses Florida (and per Karl, allegedly FL now is pretty good about counting ballots on election day, including mail-in), that could be the end of the game.

So maybe Bloomberg knows a thing or two after all, and maybe his promise to spend big is now being met. Maybe he was waiting for the right moment?

  1. I can no longer hear the name “Mike Bloomberg” and not see Fred Armisen in my head. (much like I cannot hear the name Rudy Giuliani and not see Kate McKinnon, or hear the name Jeff Session and not se, Kate MacKinnon, or hear the name Elizabeth Warren and not see Kate McKinnon tormenting Fred Armisen…:-)

    No wonder he’s cozying up to the “Coobans.” That Federal Appeals Court Judge that overturned the overturned judgement that was previously overturned in a previous decision by some other Appeals Court, that either re-enfranchised or disenfranchised former Felons who had completed their sentencing, or successfully finished their parole, but who haven’t yet finished paying their fines, or restitutions, or fees, or penalties………..I swear to Dawg, I can’t keep up with that shit anymore.

    At first it was simple – it got compared to a “Poll Tax,” which is mos def prohibited, but then the Rethugs started crying about how unfair it was, that these awful Felons regained the RIGHT to vote again, but that the State could never be assured of collecting every last nickel owed to them. even if it’s from some poor guy who’s spent most of his adult, productive years imprisoned, and is having a REALLY hard time these days finding a job, and now you’re telling him he can’t even vote for someone who just might possibly make his life better in the next few years.

    Cruelty IS the specialité de la maison, with these guys. Especially on the downtrodden and defenseless; the crueler the better.

  3. Bloomberg could do some real good if he would use some of that $100 million to pay the unpaid fines assessed against previously convicted felons, now released, so that they could lawfully register and vote. Florida Courts have just upheld the requirement to pay those old fines, preventing hundreds of thousands of potential voters from registering.
