Hanen gave the higher courts an easy out, but ruled completely regardless. He said that he would not enjoin votes already cast as they were lawful votes made with valid ID. He would probably turn off curbside voting tomorrow (which ironically would impact more republicans as they're going to be the larger party tomorrow), but did not rule on that because of standing. He might not turn off curbside voting because of timeliness.

He's teed it up so the Fifth Circuit and SCOTUS can either go "no standing" and punt on the case entirely or "standing, votes already cast count, no curbside voting tomorrow."

Folks, Iím starting to think that ďwe canít indict a sitting presidentĒ was bad policy.

If the people in charge actually gave a poo poo about governing rather than just getting their way, he would have been impeached in 2017 for emoluments violations.

God dammit we needed an electoral blowout to completely destroy Republicans and this isn't it. A photo finish at the end with a Republican Senate is barely even a bandaid on the sucking chest wound that's still bleeding out.

That was never going to happen with a Biden/Harris ticket. There was zero motivation to go vote for them. 30% of registered democrats in my county in florida stayed home last yesterday.

the most shocking thing to me about the election was that trump gained around 3m votes nationwide.

The only saving grace of a sucdem like Biden is that they'll at least take the deadly loving pandemic seriously. In the election news blitzkrieg it seems to have kinda dropped off the radar that covid is worse now than when it "peaked" in early summer.

E: Florida passing minimum wage while breaking hard for Trump reminds me of something a historian said about the new deal. It was basically than Americans generally like leftist policies when presented the technical details but hate voting for anything branded leftist.

The fox news exit polls showed massive support for bernieís entire platform.

I'm not actually convinced it's done tonight, but there's no way the Pennsylvania call goes past Friday.

His speech was insanely corrosive and we will likely pay for it for some time, but it was inevitable and most of his followers believe it already anyways.

I'm honestly just happy that Pennsylvania is trending the way it is because I'm really not liking Arizona. The funniest thing in all this is that the Trump Campaign really, really has a good argument that Arizona was called way, way too loving quick.

Nah. It's just some rural counties reporting that skew heavy republican. The populous areas aren't done yet, either. The navajo nation just went 73% for Biden, for example.

It's alright to be frustrated. Here is the good news: everyone is turning on his bullshit. MSNBC, for example, literally cut the president's presser yesterday as soon as he said "illegal votes" because it's bullshit.

Hey, fuckheads, biden loving won today. Stop, take a moment, and celebrate. This is not a time for fighting. Trump loving lost. He will be gone. Yes, work must be done to fix how hosed up everything is, and there may not be a way to really get it done. Biden is going to be far less than perfect, but Trump loving lost today and will no longer be president in three months. Soak it in and enjoy something for a few hours.

They're likely freaked because of their dumb Arizona call.

Their internal models said "oh, Biden's up 8 with only mail-ins left, CALL IT" except they missed that Arizona mail-ins have been a thing in the state for Republicans forever. Donnie's bullshit didn't stop Republicans from mailing ballots, they just arrived later than Democrats' and weren't counted in the first batches.

Then, the late-earlies came back, AP/Fox didn't want to rescind the call because they thought their models were still fine (and didn't want to back down to Donnie), so now they're stuck. They don't trust the obvious (NV and PA are donezo) and GA is in automatic recountland, so they don't want to be first and potentially have to pull back a president-elect call.

Also I had my favorite sub for lunch. SUBS (slightly) BEFORE DUBS

They were right about AZ and AZ is over. There are move votes outstanding in maricopa county (which is going to biden overall) than there are in the entire rest of the state. He can't overcome the deficit. AZ doesn't matter because PA is done, but still.

Trump still has his infamous fundraising emails going, this time to "fight the fraud" or whatever inane slogan they chose. In the fine print, it says that 60% of the donation goes to servicing debt from his presidential campaign. So that's at least one "good" reason to keep the lawsuits going.

It doesn't have the debt disclaimer anymore because 100% of it now goes to a new superpac created so they can just ignore the old campaign debt and launder the money to themselves that way.

I looked it up and it's the Senate Majority Policy Committee. It's gonna be 16 or so republican state senators, rudy, and his gang of miscreants yelling about fraud instead of working towards the losing appeal in the third circuit.
