    Good sense (which isn't common) dictates sending your best people to observe, not obstruct.

    But we're dealing with loyal Trumpsters.

    Petulant is as petulant does.

    I just wonder if this was the strategy all along if this election was close? I mean, if Georgia and Arizona went for Trump, Wisconsin would be enough to swing the entire election. Or at least send it to the House to vote him in to break the tie.

    Even during a pandemic, turnout was way higher. However, the Democrats need to figure out why one party giving everything to their base with no intention of letting the Democrats get anything would be popular to the other party. They might have won the popular vote by a few million, but they got lucky in a handful of states that came out t

    My feelings about Rudy Counselori Giuliani are well know here.

    Since he is now heading Trump's reelection legal team (his appointment apparently came as huge surprise to Trump's reelection legal team):

    The order of the photos should make the message clear.

    Edit: I will concede (funny, but rather obvious) that I could've used fewer images.

    I don't think so. Counselori Giuliani is a crook who has Conman Trump as a client. Both should be subject to ridicule, such as memes.

    I ready the letter from Emily W. Murphy to Joe Biden. The letter is well written, and makes sense superficially. But it reads as though she has convinced herself she delayed the transfer as legally required per her interpretation, not because she's a loyal Trumper. She makes it a point to say there was no outside pressure especially from the White House, which reads like she's covering for the White House.

    I got a real kick out of her reminding Biden that there is a reporting requirement attached to receiving funds. So if someone did forensic accounting they would find that the GSA closely monitored Trump's spending to ensure compliance?

    So followup to T digging his heals in until the end - with the electoral count.

    First, Supreme Court this year said states CAN force electors to vote by popular vote.
    Unanimous Supreme Court Smacks Down ‘Faithless Electors’ in Time for 2020 Election

    And a FYI on this question...
    Can the Electoral College be subverted by “faithless electors”?

    There are 32 states that have laws on this (BUT, some have no penalty for it- BUT quite a few cancel the vote and replace the elector)
    Faithless Elector State Laws - FairVote
    So Arizona, Nevada and Michigan would have a do over...Wisconsin, there's a law but no change.
    Pennsylvania and Georgia have no laws - so he could try to push those. (PA has had a trend of resisting him, GA's govt has a trend of supporting him)

    So, question is, what STUPID stunt will T try to change things. (because you know he is...it's his nature)

    Fortunately, there's a large point difference in this election.
    And historically, it's rare to get 1 much less a few to change.
    There would have to get over 39 to switch to win.

    I expect him to try some madness
    But far, his cohorts have fallen on their faces.

    Again, we'll have to wait until January for this to stop.

    I can't wait until January 20th, when the Inauguration happens.

    However, this whole thing has shown the holes in the rules...and what a chaotic side the US has.
    What a history lesson! :confused:
