"Election Fraud" is this election cycle's GOP attempt at delegitimatization of the President-elect.

Joe Biden is white, male, cisgender, and Christian. His name is relentlessly all-American. He has the dogged, scrappy style of a guy raised in working-class Pennsylvania.

Calling him a Kenyan, Muslim, Marxist, Communist, Fascist, America-hater would just be ridiculous.

As ridiculous as it was when they tagged Barack Obama with the same epithets. But because of President Obama's skin color and Arabic-derived name, the GOP was able to sell it convincingly to the room-temperature IQ crowd.

They know it would never work on Joe Biden. So they're frantically pushing the election fraud nonsense in a feverish attempt to re-capture the glory days of "He's not a real American, so he can't be President".

1. Birtherism 2.0

That is how they are going to frame it to rile the base and foment division, just like with Obama's BC.

Delegitimatize his next 4 years....

2. Feverish attempt is exactly right!

Using that term is why they're losing.

I don't suppose the lawsuits will stop until they've been turned away by the Supreme Court.

4. Yeah.

They can't sneer at Jimmy Carter anymore. The GOP has had two one-termers in the last thirty years.

6. They're furious because they can't pin anything bad on Biden.

That's one of many things I love about Joe. He has a decades-long political career and no dirt that they can use against him. It's driving the GOP cult crazy with rage.

7. Nailed it.

Makes you wonder how many of the current GOP Congress would stand up to the same scrutiny. I guessing not many.
