Trump’s Latest Loss in Pennsylvania

Republican Judge Matthew W. Brann of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania takes the Trump campaign to task in a scathing opinion issued yesterday: In this action, the Trump Campaign and the Individual Plaintiffs (collectively, the “Plaintiffs”) seek to discard millions of votes legally cast by Pennsylvanians from all corners – […]

Fitting Bookends for a President Who Often Seems to Live in a Parallel Universe

Jacob Sullum, writing at Reason.com: Donald Trump began his presidency by asserting, based on “alternative facts,” that he had attracted “the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration.” He is ending his presidency by averring that Saturday’s pro-Trump rally in Washington, D.C., attracted more than 1 million people. And just as he claimed that he […]

No Evidence of Voter Fraud

From the paper of record’s “The Morning” briefing: The Times contacted top election officials in every state to ask about illegal voting. Officials in 45 states responded directly. For four of the remaining states, The Times spoke to other statewide officials or found public comments from secretaries of state. None said they had found evidence […]

Reason: Trump Says Mail-in Votes Are Suspicious Because They Overwhelmingly Favor Joe Biden. He’s Wrong.

The subhead says it all: This isn’t fraud. This isn’t a scheme to steal the election. It is the very predictable outcome of the president’s own words and actions. No. Fucking. Shit. I mean, seriously, duh! Even as dozens of states were expanding mail-in voting eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic, President Donald Trump spent […]

The Final Debate

Or should I say, The Final Debase… The paper of record: But the debate wasn’t normal by the standards of nearly all of American history. It wasn’t normal because one of the nominees — the sitting president — told one lie after another. He did so about the virus, North Korea, China, Russia, climate change, […]

Perfect.

I have read the argument a lot in the last day that social media is the Public Square. No. The internet is the public square, and it is infinite. Twitter is an Arby’s on the Square, and you’re inside yelling about their lack of vegan options being literal fascism. — parker (@pt) October 15, 2020

More Bullshit Hypocrisy from the So-called Conservative Crowd

We all know that when a business owner refuses to bake a cake for a gay couple, citing his or her “beliefs”, that the so-called conservative crowd rallies to the business owner’s defense. “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.” However, now that business owner’s are refusing service to anyone not wearing a […]

It’s not often I agree with Bill Clinton, but…

The former President had some rather apt remarks to make last night regarding the current President and Conspiracy Theorist-in-Chief: If you want a president who defines the job as spending hours a day watching TV and zapping people on social media, he’s your man. Indeed. For fuck’s sake, President Hump doesn’t even “go to work” […]

It’s a Service, Not a Business

I’ve been hearing people talk about the Post Office “losing money” for over three decades now. People, it seems, just love to bitch about the Post Office. People also love to miss the finer details, so I’ll fill you in a little bit. The Post Office is a service, not a business. I know this […]
