Bullshit and more fucking bullshit

On the White House lawn!

Now the responsible media will have to spend days correcting the lies.

November 9, 2020

On this year's polling and GOTV:

First, I think that the normal adjustments even the best pollsters make to identify "likely voters" was incredibly different in this age of covid. What with tRump setting up his post- election excuse by deriding mail ballots simultaneously with some key states seniors and others historically dependent on it. That is just one of the factors that made this year's polling a bigger challenge. And, IMO, it also makes this year's exit polling relatively useless.

Secondly, I do believe that the tRump cult really got their vote out and hat's off to them. In the Biden campaign, which also--very clearly--did a terrific job getting out our vote, there was a notable effort to promote safety in the pandemic age. The tRump campaign, not surprisingly, didn't give a flying Philidelphia F*#k about voter safety... they just needed to get those sheep to the polls.

Thankfully, our folks were largely comfortable with mail ballots and those that were not showed up on Tuesday.

Insurrection Act My Ass!

tRump wants to invoke the "Insurrection law" because protesters attacked Rand Paul last night.

What a pair off weenies! The video is on multiple web sites and it basically amounted to people yelling for justice for Breanna while Paul walked through with multiple police officers protecting him.

tRump amd Paul trying to paint the peaceful protesters as a lynch mob. What a joke!

Yes, and if we stopped testing teenagers for pregnancy

we would see very little of that as well, right?

Jon Stewart was correct... Fuckface von Clownstick!

Why does our side complicate things? Again!

This “Defund the police” messaging is aggravating as hell! Of course it doesn’t mean eliminate police departments. But we’ve shot ourselves in the foot because now our folks have to either spend a lot of time explaining what it really means. Why couldn’t we say something like Reform the Police, or Clean Up the Police, or Get Racists out of the Police?

I mean the damn tRumpers may have shit for policy positions, but you don’t need five minutes to explain their slogans! If they put out a new slogan that simply says “We are Assholes!” They can move on to the next propaganda bullshit without stopping to explain.

Obviously the Defund tag is not going to get us any additional votes by itself. So when we go into “here is what it really means...” the audience starts hearing blah, blah, blah.

And despite how nice the polls are looking right now, about five months out, we are going to need those additional votes!
