    Reports: Matt Gaetz, Michael Waltz test positive for COVID-19 https://floridapolitics.com/archives/381939-reports-matt-gaetz-michael-waltz-test-positive-for-covid-19
  3. I like this for a poetic statement about what just happened:
  4. "No one is above the law." Especially POTUS!!! If the crap Trump pulled is not addressed, then the bar has just been lowered for the highest office in the land. That is a message for succeeding presidents, that they can get away with at least as much corruption and incompetence as Trump, and probably more.

    Who had Mark Meadows as next in the Whitehouse Virus Lottery? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-11-07/trump-s-chief-of-staff-mark-meadows-infected-by-coronavirus
  6. Yale Law Professor Akhil Amar explains it very succinctly in 2 minutes:
  7. Looks like Bannon's lawyers want no part of his jihad: Steve Bannon’s Lawyers Are Running for the Hills After Client’s Insane Call for Dr. Fauci’s Head https://lawandcrime.com/awkward/steve-bannons-lawyers-are-running-for-the-hills-after-clients-insane-call-for-dr-faucis-head/
  8. LOL! This is exactly what I thought about when I read the original post.
  9. It's good to know everything is running so smoothly in Jeff's business that he has time to focus on such trivial matters!
  10. Paula White praying for Trump victory: (It gets good around 0:30) Now the same video, but with a touch of Eminem: https://www.facebook.com/badbradwheeler/posts/10158975921167359
  11. Trump suddenly decided he is all in favor of late ballots: https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/politics/elections/2020/11/06/trumps-wisconsin-campaign-asks-pennsylvania-cast-late-ballots/6182506002/

  13. Apparently, the American Taliban still thinks we should adopt the practices of Saudi Arabia: Twitter bans a Steve Bannon account after he says Anthony Fauci and Christopher Wray should be beheaded https://www.cbsnews.com/news/twitter-bans-steve-bannon-account-fauci-wray-beheaded/
  14. But remember: Fox was the first to call AZ for Biden, thereby throwing the man-baby into a hissy fit.
  15. Weird story from Australia; Sportsbet is already paying out bets that Biden won: https://7news.com.au/politics/world-politics/sportsbet-pays-out-early-on-bets-for-joe-biden-to-win-us-presidency-c-1522880
  16. It's been hitting 75F this week here in Red Dawn country. It's brutal, I tell ya!
  17. In March 2019, CO governor signed the bill to put CO into the National Popular Vote Pact. Some people were unhappy with this, and succeeded into putting it to a referendum in this election. It looks like it has passed.
  18. Trump lawyers will love it until they get stiffed on their bills.
  19. From Heather Cox Richardson this morning. The origins of the asinine winner-takes-all practice that afflicts 48 out of 50 states in allocating their EC votes: The problem of voter suppression is compounded by the misuse of the Electoral College. The Framers originally designed delegates to the Electoral College to vote according to districts within states, so that states would split their electoral votes, making them roughly proportional to a candidate’s support. That system changed in 1800, after Thomas Jefferson recognized that he would have a better chance of winning the presidency if the delegates of his own home state, Virginia, voted as a bloc rather than by district. He convinced them to do it. Quickly, other state officials recognized that the “winner-take-all” system meant they must do the same or their own preferred candidate would never win. Thus, our non-proportional system was born, and it so horrified James Madison and Alexander Hamilton that both wanted constitutional amendments to switch the system back. https://heathercoxrichardson.substack.com/p/november-3-2020
  20. I'm not expecting any conclusive results tonight in anything outside of my own state. But here in CO where mail-in ballots are default, results tonight are meaningful. Former CO gov Hickenlooper (D) is projected to easily defeat incumbent Cory Gardner (R), and Gardener has already conceded.
  21. Same here. I stole that from some smartass on bikeforums.net who posted it yesterday.
  22. Oh, thank goodness! I was down to my last bag of it!
