Election results are in, except that the lame-duck has demanded a recount in targeted districts in Georgia. Biden won 49.9% of the popular vote in Georgia with 2,472,098 votes, and Squatter in Chief is at 49.2% with 2,458,121 votes. To be fair, only 13,977 votes stand between our towering leaner and 16 electoral votes. Recounts rarely change results, and these 16 electoral votes would not alter election results.
Biden is well over the 270 needed to win, without Georgia he has 290 electoral votes. The loser has 232. So, what’s the point of a recount? He wants vindication. He wants a reason to say look, they got this wrong so, the entire election is null and void. It won’t work.
Let’s forget Georgia for a minute. Nationally, Joe Biden won the popular vote by 5,852,544 with 51% of the vote. Those 79,396,170 votes are more than any U.S. President has ever received. Manbaby Rantman gets a participation trophy with 47.3% and 73,543,626.
With almost six million more votes, this election demonstrates yet again our flawed system of electing a President. Yes, Biden won, but if not for a few hundred votes in select districts in swing states results could have gone to our biggest loser. That’s how we ended up with low energy cranky grandpa in 2016. He lost the popular vote to Hillary by almost three million votes. That scenario could have played out again.
If Joe Biden does abolish the Electoral College, even if he does nothing else, he will be remembered forever for fixing our broken election system.
Election security reform would be nice too, wouldn’t it? I’d like to know we are electing our president, rather than accepting a choice made by Russia or China… or South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.
Earlier this week South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham was outed for asking Georgia’s Secretary of State to toss out legally cast ballots in Democratic districts. Today we found out witnesses are confirming the allegation. In normal times that act would be Graham’s curtain call. It would end his political career, and possibly result in an indictment for election tampering.
Something to ponder-— On Election Day Trump’s approval rating was 44%. How did he end up with 47.3% of the vote?
This paragraph is only for Lindsey, félicitations on winning your Senate reelection by ten points despite polls showing you trailing or tied with your opponent. A bit of advice. If somehow you run again and defy all logic by winning when you are expected to lose, try to keep the numbers within a believable three-point range to avoid suspicion.
More food for thought— Kentucky’s Ballard county has 2,285 registered Republicans, but Republican Senator Mitch McConnell received approximately 3,310. Something isn’t right in the state of Kentucky.
Let’s keep all eyes on the Georgia Senate run-off election. Results could shift the power in the Senate. People, like Lindsey, are desperate to keep the majority. Everyone deserves to have their vote counted.
Speaking of cybersecurity, (were we?) our failed candidate didn’t like the fact that everyone wasn’t corroborating his story of election fraud, so today he did what he does best. He fired another qualified department leader. Who needs cybersecurity right before a game-changing senate run-off?
Stupid Nixon has once again exposed the jugular of our National Security, this time by firing Christopher Krebs, the Chief of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity Division. Krebs was responsible for the defense of our 2020 election, and he confirmed the integrity of the results- much to Trumpelthinskin’s chagrin.
It appears we will continue to partake of our daily dose of fresh Hell, until Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20. We have to survive captain crazy for two months. Then we have Covid19 to worry about. I only wish there were some adults left in the White House.
