Yes, Democrats have all been conspiring with George Soros, Cuba, all poll workers in at least 6 states, voting machine companies, Republican governors, China, Joe Pesci, the late Hugo Chavez and the hair dye industry. You have to admit, it was a hell of a plan. Who'd believe it?
It's now official...President Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris! The theme for today is celebration! Songs that make you happy, songs about winning, feeling good and having fun are all good for this weekend's celebratory playlist.
Many of us have been waiting through a neverending and torturous four years for this day to finally come and as impossible as it may have seemed along the way, it's finally presidential Election Day!
There is less to worry about in the election and more to worry about in the aftermath than has ever been the case in an election in America (even on the brink of the Civil War!). Perhaps these worries won't turn out to have been justified, I hope to be wrong about this. But did you ever think that in America, the approach of an election would require the boarding up of windows and the FBI to be on high alert?
PlanetPOV will be hosting a live chat simultaneously with the debate, to share reactions, insights and humor as the debate plays out. The Live Chat and debate both start at 6:00pm PDT/9:00pm PDT.
Looking at the record-breaking early voting and the higher turnout of younger and minority voters, it seems much more likely that Biden over-performs than Trump, winning more than the necessary 270 electoral votes he seems likely to win at this point.
Biden and Harris should keep their thoughts on this sequestered. His advisers, Democratic Leadership, well-regarded jurists, historians, and experts on the U.S. Constitution will need to study the issue. Biden has addressed the matter previously saying that that the idea of balancing a seriously imbalanced court by adding seats is a dangerous precedent.
The Commission on Presidential Debates announced in the aftermath of Trump's Faux Tourette Syndrome disruption of the first debate and subsequent contraction of COVID-19, that the debate would have a virtual format. So why did Trump loudly refuse to debate in this format?

To turn the page on this frantic leaping from distraction to distraction by Republicans because accepting reality is too painful for them, this weekend's music thread is for songs that tell stories (you can serve them with green eggs and ham if you like).

How to Solve the Manchin and Sinema Blockade of the Biden Agenda

Many brave Democrats lost their seats in 2010 for voting for the ACA but in doing so, they saved and helped millions of Americans, past, present and future. What they did was noble and profound, they changed history for the better. Clearly, Manchin and Sinema are not cut from the same cloth but perhaps they can be leveraged to do the right thing and become reluctant heroes in the end despite themselves.

Not An Insult or Exaggeration – The GOP is Now a Genuine Cult

The uniqueness of the GOP being the first American political party to transform into a cult may undercut acceptance but that hurdle needs to be jumped or the existential threat this nation faces from this cult may come to pass.
