If I had known you were listening, I wouldn’t have said anything! Every husband at one time or another
Sometimes you have to drag the news out kicking and screaming, and sometimes it just comes up and sits down in your lap. This is one of the latter times. Yesterday, I wrote an article in which I tried to highlight some of the difficulties the GOP is facing in the January 5th run off special election, and I just learned something that really helps to put at least one part of it in better perspective.
One of the things that I spent quite a bit of time on was Trump’s rampant insistence that there was widespread voter fraud in Georgia, and his insistence that two highly vulnerable incumbent Senators partake of the bullshit buffet by both publicly coming out and demanding that Georgia’s GOP Secretary of State immediately resign for having been too stupid and incompetent to catch the widespread fraud, and then refusing to do anything about it.
Well, here’s the McGuffin. A new poll was released today that had to do solely with Trump voters. And that poll showed that a full 77% of Trump voters said that Biden won the election only because of rampant voter fraud. Only 11% of Trump voters thought that Biden had won fair and square. I am taking for granted that the other 12% gazed about glassily, jammed their finger another inch up their noses, and said Duh, I dunno.
I’d call that a rather stunning fait accompli of brazen political self destruction, wouldn’t you? But now, throw this little sniglet into the mix. The state of Georgia announced today that in the first 5 days since the confirmation of the special elections, there have been more than 700,000 requests for absentee ballots already received. Considering how thoroughly Trump has conned his flock, and the extent to which the Democrats literally owned early and mail in balloting this year, I have a hard time believing that this is some secret newfound wellspring of GOP early voting enthusiasm.
Here’s the best part. Because this is the part where I show you that Trump, Loeffler, and Predue not only boned themselves sideways, they were so stupid that they caught a STD doing it! The Three Louseketeers swear on their mothers souls that the only reason that they lost was because the election was stolen from them by devious, Godless Democrats. OK, let’s take them at their word. You know what that means? That the fucking Democrats were successful!!! They made it work!
Whether Trump comes down to campaign for the Gruesome Twosome or not, how do any or all of them convince their sheeple to drag out to the polls in the middle of nowhere on the holiday calendar, stand around and cast a ballot, when all three of them have already told them that the Democrats are fully capable of rigging a Georgia election in their favor. Especially since the same Secretary of State will still be sitting in the same chair?
Meanwhile, the Democrats already have more than 700,000 absentee ballots in the pipe in the first five days since the election was confirmed, and I look for that number to double by this time next week. Stacey Abrams and her activist elves are busy signing up voters who will turn 18 by election day, and pumping the start of early voting in mid December. And as I pointed out earlier, the Democrats are on a 1 lb M&M bag sugar high from the election, and ready to finish the job. Hell, they know that there was no voter fraud, but what there was, was more of us than there are of them. As Teri likes to say, Dis gwan be sum fun choo bet! Don’t touch that dial.
