No pressure, guys.  But Shinji over here could make it into office.  I hope they sanitize the Bible after he puts his hand on it.  Or better yet, burn it afterwards.

Trump was recorded saying this and was elected president.


Republicans will vote for a bad candidate simply to prevent a Democrat from winning.

If they get their chance--and they ARE making moves to do this--Republicans will make it so they can decide any election before it happens. They've harassed the responsible poll people, running them out, and having replaced them with radicals. They're shamelessly saying they'll declare any counties where Democrats win as "compromised," and toss out those votes.

Those who aren't voting may soon wish they had been paying attention.

Yes, in 2016 I made two really bad predictions. 

First, as the World Series began, I said that there is no way that the Cubs will win.  Ok, I'm not a serious fan, but I like the Cubs, and was happy to be wrong.

Second, before the election I told a friend that there is no way that the American people are stupid enough to elect Trump.  I knew better, but I momentarily let national pride cloud my judgment. My bad.

I certainly voted.  In Minnesota we have a governor candidate and a secretary of state candidate that have 'no way of knowing' if Biden actually won. We will show that we have more sense than that.

What an idiot.  The professional, legitimate maniacs grab mics and podiums.  If you're a candidate, they just let you do it.  You can do anything.

Had a secretary at work who said the same thing.

Trump sychophant and 2020 election denialist Budd won (guess which election he's not going to dispute?) so NC is going to have a MAGA, pro-dictatorship nutcase in the US senate.

He's also on record opposing the For The People act, which would safeguard American voting rights and one of a few Republicans who opposed condemning Myanmar's coup.  How charming.

Judging from the bitter tears (which may or may not come with zip ties, bear spray, and a hammer later), the red wave didn't materialize, but neither imho did a blue wave.  America remains ambivalent about whether or not it wants to be a modern, developed western country or a fascistic banana republic.  Great.

Democrats continue to show their greatest talent--snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.  Most of the country is on the same side of almost all of the issues, yet the Democrats simply cannot win.  Every election the nazi's become stronger and more widespread.  This one is no different.  2024 is shaping up to be more of the same.  idiocracy we are and the dumbing down continues.

Seeing Republicans lose because of the libertarian vote and Democrats rubbing it in is... something.

It's like the forgot the last 6 years or so where they blamed progressives for all their loses and are now using the exact same anger that they threw towards their own at the Republicans.

Anything but admit the two-party system is intentionally set up to make America worse, and third-parties are the only way that will ever change...

Yeah, well all the Dems had to work with was:

* Trump-inspired downplaying/denialism of a pandemic that killed over a million americans, many of which can be chalked up to anti-science Republican messaging
* Republican-led efforts to destroy American democracy and the rule of law
* Republican-implimented forced-birth policies as a direct result of stacking the courts with fundies who view women as sperm receptacles
* Trump praise for Putin and Republicans' wishy-washy stance on defending democracy against dictator-led invasion, with some saying that not a penny more should go to defending Ukrainian civilians from genocide
* Republican outrage at *checks notes* their guy not winning because he didn't get the votes leading directly to brutal invasion of the Pelosi residence, which they not only failed to condemn, but continue to actively encourage

But I guess none of that can hold a candle to:

* Gasoline prices have shot up (and down) and even though Exxon is raking in the dough, it's all Biden's fault somehow

"Enlightened" centrists:  sounds like they both have legit grievances
