121.01/ Week one-hundred and twenty one, November 5-11, 2022, thread begins here.

Week 120 below. Who knows how long I'll get to keep doing this, sigh.
121.02/ Good metaphor.

However, to me, it feels like 2012 during Hurricane Sandy, waiting for the power to go out.

121.03/ This is what I mean. There's a completely preventable, maliciously negligent, technology collapse coming soon.

1/ A thread that expands 16.80 of my Week 16 thread which gathered my stray replies on Twitter. It was a pressure-cooker time, the #RedMirage was fading & the #BlueSurge gaining steam. Many of us were squirming with quarantined anxiety.

I knew this was going to be awesome. @JoeNBC is on 🔥. @realDonaldTrump is watching and the end game is on. Soon it will be #gameover
With all due respect to the network Decision desks. Provisional ballots are completely irrelevant in races with 4 digit margins.

This would even be true even in California. This discussion is the second coming of #RedMirage. A form of mad media collective dimness.
Lawsuits are similarly completely irrelevant at law unless they reach a level of materiality. If there is near-zero, or zero chance of the a lawsuit resulting in any change, it will be dismissed. Judges are allergic to election petitions even when they have merit.

For all of my social justice friends who are anxious about #Elections2020 right now, here are some pro-tips.

1) Turn off your TVs. They’re presenting you with a lot of unnecessary information that is likely increasing your anxiety. They want you anxiously glued. #Ratings
2) Go to print media (via their online platforms). They’ll give you the info you’re looking for. Refresh it when you want the updated data. @nytimes and @WSJ are pretty quick in their updates. @538politics is great too. Unlike TV, you get to control what you consume. #SelfCare
3) Democrats more likely to believe in COVID, so more likely to vote via absentee ballot. Only 28% of PA absentee ballots have been counted/ 78% of PA’s absentee ballots so far are blue. Only 16% of Michigan’s absentee counted/ 68% of MI’s absentees so far are blue. #RedMirage

The first #Election2020 polls close in a few minutes, so here's my official electoral map prediction.

Let's see how I do... Image
Arizona looks good!

North Carolina is a nail-bitter.

I know Bluer-votes in rust belt will be delayed... but their early returns are no less stressful.

Florida looks to be a 5+ point swing in Trump's favor 😰

Pleased my state is holding Blue.

How is everyoney holding up?

Where and how (if at all) are you following #ElectionNight coverage?

16.01/ There are some really promising signs. It's a good feeling that increasing the number of voters - without even knowing how they voted - is good for the Democrats. It's good for democracy and the "Democrat" party. Funny that
16.02/ A reminder that huge crowds - and 40% of the vote - is also what Hoover inspired in 1932.
16.03/ Florida is a true toss-up because it's Florida and it's designed to be a god-awful mess. But I have a good feeling about Texas (and Georgia). A gooooooooooooood feeling about Texas
