Which losing Democratic candidate for president said fraud was why they lost?
Gore didn’t even go that far and he had the most reason to do so!
The worst example of this on the Democratic side was Stacey Abrams (and a lot of her rhetoric after the election wasn't great), but as far as POTUS goes, I don't think I can think of a single example in recent memory of what Ben is saying?
but nothing that would've closed a 50k gap. yeah, aggressive voter purges are bad on principle, but that probably wouldn't have come close to making up the margin. other stuff was the doing of Fulton County's incompetence.
yeah, exactly. it's in a "we'll never know" category but I'm super suspect that the margin would've changed that much. Kemp still sucks hard though.

Exactly 2 weeks until the biggest German election in almost two decades and the two center-left parties looked poised to deliver a huge win over Angel Merkel's party (she's not running). Question is if they can form a coalition w/o the far left or center (unlikely).
Baerbock -- the Greens' Chancellor candidate -- seems to have stemmed the bleeding her party had with the rise of SPD and had what appears to be a great debate. The center-right candidate continues to be very much disliked by the majority of the German population.
But Baerbock doing better doesn't necessarily help because both SPD (center-left) and Greens are hovering around 41-42% right now. You need about a combined 46% to have a shot at a majority, so they'll probably need another party. Who? That's the million-euro question.

Oh my god. This picture was taken 13 years ago.
It’s my 10 year LA anniversary. Also my favorite in the world, my grandpa, died 10 years ago today. I’m a host of contradictory of emotions.
For a while I would call him to hear his voicemail.

I miss that.

This is one of the biggest issues of some original pilots. A lot of young/first time writers have an idea they thing is cool as the ending, but in reality that should be the act one out. Example: I knew someone who wrote what seemed to be this weird Stepford Wife-y pilot. It… 1/
was weird and had a cool vibe (and to be clear, well written). The twist at the end was that it actually took place inside a simulation and these were computer programs for a Pleasantville-type world becoming sentient. Cool twist. But the way the plot in the pilot was laid… 2/
out, it didn’t actually tell the story that the pilot was promising at the end. Instead it was just vaguely creepy scenes with little momentum. That’s not to say original pilot should be plot plot plot, but I should have an idea of the story/theme you want to tell by page 10. 3/3

This tweet only makes sense if you assume not one American died in Afghanistan from October 7th, 2001 until now.
I'm really trying to wrap my head around this -- our entire political establishment sent members of our military into an unwinnable, useless war, and over 2,000 of them have died. Thousands of Afghan civilians died for literally nothing -- a war you supported.
Seems like you should've cared about the lives of literally any of these people before it became politically convenient. But what do I know.

"Popular vote is not a thing" is maybe the problem.
Yes, Democrats were dumb in 2004 to object to Ohio's electoral votes and the calls to have the EC reject Trump was unfounded, but crafting a system where the minority rules is a great way to lose legitimacy.
Presidential systems are already historically precarious but if you're building a presidential system where it becomes routinely easy for the minority of the country to win elections, it's not really that surprising some would take issue with that system.
