Massachusetts approves right to repair legislation.
People do not want to be screwed by their car dealers, at least now without lube.
Good night all.
I am going to leave you with a thought from P.C. Hodgell:
“That which can be destroyed by the truth, should be.”
I’m drunk, and tired, and I’m shutting down.
My final thought: America is broken, and Biden was running on a “Return to Normalcy,” and this is unsustainable.
If we had nominated Bernie, we’d have already crossed the 270 threshold, but the Democratic Party establishment (There is no Democratic Party establishment), needed to keep their gravy train rolling.
Florida approves a $15/hr minimum wage, New Jersey approves recreatinal marijuana.
The initiatives that I am most interested in are right to repair in Massachusetts, and Uber’s attempt to re-institute gig-economy slavery in California.
I think that I might be too drunk to blog, which is WAY less interesting than the Dead Kennedys album “Too Drunk to F%$#.”
I need to note that I am NOT going to stay up beyond midnight, so we are probably not gboing to get a final result for this post.
You might want to check out the cat that went to the beach and hated the wind.
McConnell didn’t just beat McGrath, he destroyed her, and the consultants got a cut of all that money set on fire.
California, Oregon, and Washington went for Biden, but we knew that this would happen.
Switching to The Daily Show.
Lindsay Graham (SC) looks to win reelection, but in Georgia, it looks like the Senate race is heading to a runoff.
Arizona is definitely in play. Interesting.
McConnell won reelection against the hapless, and anti-ideological campaign of Amy McGrath, favored by the DNC, the DSCC, and the DNC, has failed because, as I have said, , “You can’t beat something with nothing, even if the something is awful.”
She lost to a f%$#ing box turtle.
Remembering 2000, please God, let it not come down to Florida.
BTW, it looks like the highest turnout in decades.
Most of the states out of the Pacific time zone have closed polled.
Breaking for dinner. Having some Romenesko Broccoli and cheese soup.
Doug Jones loses in Alabama. Not a surprise. He’s not running against a pedophile this year.
It looks like Florida is going to go for Trump.
Way to go Democratic Party establishment (There is no Democratic Party establishment).
I have a prediction: That I will be seriously shicker (drunk) within the next 15 minutes.
Arizona, which is always just one election away from turning Democratic Party, appears to remain one election away.
The consultants don’t care. They get their vig win or lose.
The BBC is strongly implying that Trump will pull this out.
The Democratic Party establishment (There is no Democratic Party establishment) appears to have screwed the pooch once again.
The Iron Law of Institutions, which states that power WITHIN an organization is pursued at the expense of the power OF that organization, may once again end up f%$#ing us all.
Crap. It appears that they will be calling Florida for Trump soon.
I wonder how they will blame the progressives for this.
I took a break to cuddle with Meatball, because I needed some Kitteh:
For my Jewish friends, if you want to make Aliyah to Israel, you can go to this link.
If you are not Jewish, consider getting a circumcision.
Democratic party stalwarts are sounding remarkably subdued, because this is NOT the blowout that they expected.
I’ve said this a number of times, “You can’t beat something with nothing, even if the something is awful.”
Why can’t Comedy Central do coverage of the elections? It would be so much more pleasant.
Switching to the Beeb. (BBC)
Turning off Taibbi and Halper, mostly they are looking for drinking points for their game.
Checking the NY Times map, and it has:
- Biden winning Colorado, New Mexico, Illinois, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, DC, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.
- Trump winnign, North & South Dakota, Georgia, Wyoming, Nebraska, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Louuisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and South Carolina.
Ohio is in play in a number of reports.
I need to drink more.
Crap, the awful Susan Collins looking good right now. She is the epitome of everything that is wrong with politics.
Live streaming Matt Taibbi and Katie Halper as well.
They seem bummed, and Virginia seems to be in play.
We are f%$#ed if that is true.
Switching to MSNBC.
Rachel Maddow, as always is chipper, which I find grating as hell. I have since she, at the behest of her corporate masters at MSNBC, tried to queer the California primary in 2016.
Well, here we go. I’ve poured myself a stiff rum and (flat) Coke, and I am ready to turn to the news.
