Relax, America: Prznint Stupid has no straightforward way to steal this election through the courts, thanks to Handsome Joe Biden who is actually winning the 2020 Goat Rodeo ballot-by-ballot. Reality has a liberal bias.
But what Lord Damp Nut can do/is doing is making-up new conspiracy theories that will pit Possum Hollar against Handsome Joe, and make eventual governance a constant challenge.
Strategic hire AG Bill ‘Low’ Barr has given federal prosecutors the go-ahead to investigate “specific allegations” of voter fraud (spoiler alert: there is none). Oddly, the DOJ’s top election crimes prosecutor resigned.
Lord Damp Nut may or may not be winning the PR war with Possum Hollar, depending. It’s a choose-your-own adventure:
- A Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 70% of Republicans don’t think the election was free and fair.
- A Reuters/Ipsos poll found that nearly 80% of Americans say Biden won White House
Fox News has had a few fleeting moments of isolated regrets about “destroying faith in American elections,” but mostly FNC et al continues to catapult the propaganda. (H/T Chimpy McStagger)
Look, we know Hair Füror would do anything to stay in power, and that Republicans would do anything to assist him, but don’t despair, Biden has won the election and will be inaugurated on January 20th.
What you do need to consider is that all of this is to distract us from the Senate run-off elections in Georgia. Keep your eye on that prize, Trump’s election sideshow is just another distraction. Proof? Republican officials plan to challenge a whopping 180 ballots in Arizona, where Biden is leading by 14,000 votes.
