March those fuckers into the sea. I’m serious.
As Gore Vidal once said, “It is not enough merely to win; others must lose.”
It’s time to think about what winning the 2020 Goat Rodeo must look like, and without cribbing too much from my blogging betters, we need to remember the past and not lose Reconstruction again.
Don’t trust them, give no quarter, show no mercy.
Republicans are bad faith actors, they do not deserve another chance. They need to be beaten into submission, drawn and quartered, and parts buried in intersections across all the lands, and the earth salted and Holy Water’ed (is too a vurb!)
Some of you will say we shouldn’t count our electoral chickens yet, but I’m here to say that we are giving Team Evil a psychological win by not doing some early crowing. Also, if we don’t start acting like winners now, they will really go violently non-linear when we do win. We need to take the edge off of their swords. They will scream that we stole it (which they will do anyway, but maybe we can muzzle a few of them) once the in-person voting, Red Mirage evaporates.
So start doing some limited end-zone dances. It will pay off later.
