Wait, are Republicans just starting to realize that ratfucking an electoral system that handed the presidency to the popular vote loser twice in the past 20 years might not be so great for them? While the Republican coup caucus plans to raise a righteous ruckus over the free and fair...

Philip Bump has the goods: it is nearly impossible for the fraud claimed by Trumpists to have occurred in 2020. No evidence has emerged to support an already conspiracy-ridden and ignorance-addled group of crypto-fascists bent on creating a dictatorship for a game-show demagogue.

I’m from Wisconsin, and I lived there for most of my life. I’ve occasionally joked that my fellow Wisconsinites’ choosing Ron Johnson over Russ Feingold (twice!) felt a little like your mom divorcing your dad so she could date Carrot Top. In other words — FUCKING INSANE! But as fatuous and...

Although frequently posed as one question — “should we eliminate the Electoral College?” — there really are two separate questions: should we (i) abolish the Electoral College, but keep the formulation where each state’s weight is based on the combined total of its US Senators and Representatives, or (ii) move entirely to a national popular vote? I...

Remember that his visit to a Texas oil-rig makes it an “official” trip. He’s whining about Fox News coverage, among other things.

Trump and the GOP's cancel mania still proliferate, because fear, hate, and money rule the roost until November. All that right-wing cruelty comes out, with GOP governors willing to sacrifice their populations for cult-leader Trump.
