After the Wayne County election board in Michigan voted to certify the county’s election results on Tuesday night, Lord Damp Nut phoned the two Republican members who had toyed for a few hours with overthrowing the election.
In a weird coinkydink those two Red Hats then changed their minds and tried to rescind their votes. It’s a mystery, how a perfect phone call could do that.
Then this happened:
Yup, Vulgarmort’s brain trust dismissed its last Michigan lawsuit believing that Wayne County’s certification had been blocked!
Then, Michigan’s secretary of state declared that the county’s certification vote was final. Oops!
So now, Prznint Stupid has invited the two top Republicans in Michigan’s GOP-controlled legislature to the White House to demand that they appoint a slate of Trump electors, you know, over the will of the voters.
Lord Daump Nut is attempting to overturn the results of an election he lost by nearly six million votes, and the fact that —so far— it hasn’t worked due to his incredible incompetence is not really comforting. What happens when the Republican nominate a competent fascist?
Our take-away: Republicans are willing to be co-conspirators to destroy democracy. If anyone has any doubts that the Republican Party is now full-on authoritarian, please let us know in the comments. We will gladly disabuse you of that notion.
If this kind of raw attempt to overthrow a democratically elected leader happened in some banana republic, Republicans would be flying out of the country to investigate, but because it is happening here to benefit themselves, no big deal.
