I do not care who you are, if you state that the way I can help the Republicans win in GA is to give money, I am ignoring anything you say about that race forever. No. Get your hand out of my pocket. Next up after election fraud? Let's look deeply into campaign spending.
I am by no means wah wah wah campaign financing needs to have stricter rules wah wah wah. No. Nope. But I do think the incestuous world of consultants and advisers and PR firms and ad agencies and ad buyers needs scrutinized deeply by those who donate.
There have been many pixels slain regarding the various and sundry PACs that spring up to take advantage of the crisis du jour. That is good. But how about looking deeply into the NRSC? How about the RNC itself? Let us yarn wall those connections, shall we?
I am deeply suspicious as to just where and how all those billions have been spent over the last, oh, 30 years to pick a round number. Who got those contracts? Who bid out on creating the ads? Just who all is related to who and how?
Cynical? Yup. Nasty? Indeed. But is it cynical and nasty enough? It's been decades of Most Important Election Ever and Must Win races and give us money and we will totally do these things we say. Money was given. Things have not been done. Rather the opposite, actually.
So you'll forgive me if this YOU MUST DONATE OR YOU WANT THE DEMS TO WIN LIGHT YOUR HAIR ON FIRE ARRRGGFHHH folderol makes me rather intensely skeptical. Be as transparent as my skin in the sun or shut up about asking me for money.
Here. Have an otter just because.

Yeah, this bit below is why I do not take seriously the claims by the Republican political punditry class that they truly care about election fraud. The hand wave here is a middle finger. And, yes, I read the whole article.
Either election fraud matters or it does not. And the tone of the discussion about it matters deeply. That op ed was a primal screech about how horrible Trump is. That's fine. It is beyond fair to note the court losses. I am utterly agnostic on all the Dominion stuff.
But what is contemptible, and I am stating this with the exact same degree of contempt that article has for Trump and that tuned to the finest degree, is to throw in there the in passing oh sure there were issues yeah we should look at those. Oh please. Give it up.

So. About these flash drives that apparently are used all over the country for votes and I'm just going to set all of that aside. I have the following questions:
1. How are the drives sourced?
2. Are the drives completely reformatted prior to be used for election purposes?
3. How are the drives marked to identify the precinct for which the drive was used?
4. What human being is given custody of the drive initially?
5. What human being is given custody at the precinct?
6. Is only one person allowed to use the drive? If not, how many users are there
7. Is an audit trail kept of every single human being who had touched the drive?
8. How is the data transferred accomplished?
9. What training are the people using the drive given on the data transfer process?
10. What program is used for the data transfer?

There's been a lot of discussion about why MLB tv ratings were down this year with most of the discussion focused on get woke, go broke. While that is certainly a part of it, I think that the herd of elephants trumpeting loudly and trampling about is being very pointedly ignored.
The Astros cheated and the only consequence to the players involved was that they won a World Series. That's it. Yes, yes, there were some punishments here and there but for the players themselves? Not a single damn thing. The lesson there? Cheating is worth it, big time.
The Astros kept that World Series even though it is indisputable that they cheated throughout the season. Why? *handwring handwring* Well, there's no proof it caused them to win the Series and we can't just go back and take it away and the integrity of the game!

I see the new hotness on the "Right" is that meh voter fraud happens every election whatchugonnado? I don't know, maybe, just spit balling here, at any time over the past 60 years any of y'all being so blase about this could have STOPPED IT YOU PATHETIC COWARDS!
You know what else you could have done, you spineless pieces of ambergris? You could have demanded that those engaging in it must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. You could have thrown your support to clearing out voter roles. You could have aided True The Vote.
Another thing you could have done? Is defending, with vigor mirroring the apathy with which you are shrugging eh it happens, those who said voter fraud is real. Funny, I don't remember seeing a single solitary one of you True Conservative Defenders Of The Base doing so.

I shall now tell a story that summarizes my response to this let us all come together in unity that is said every time a Democrat wins. I don't come across particularly well in this story, but, well, I'm not a particularly nice or good person no matter how hard my parents tried.
I attended a very small high school. How small? There were under 100 people and the school was grades 7-12. There were 13 people in my graduating class. By the by, out of those 13, 12 went to college. Of the 12 that went to college, 9 of us have graduate degrees.
The most successful one of us? The guy who barely graduated and who went off to be a plumber and who started his own plumbing business and who was a millionaire by early 30's and employs like 75 people now but that's another story.

In which I peeve everyone because I'm awesome like that. I've stopped reading whatever is going on. I don't care about the lawsuits. I don't care about the vote totals and oh these were found and tee hee hee look at our adorable volunteers forgetting to hit upload omg so cute!
No matter who wins, the result is tainted. I won't believe it if Trump wins. I won't believe it if Biden wins. I won't believe it because all of this is unbelievable. And inevitable. Systems stress to failure and the system has failed. We're talking this level of failure.
This has been decades in the making. Decades. Sure, let's start with Nixon and JFK and 1960 and WV because we have to start somewhere but it's not like vote counting shenanigans are anything new. The jokes about voting in Chicago are Borscht Belt era old.
