THE HORROR!!!


What's ironic is he's almost literally saying do not vote for Biden because he's going to help you and the mother [expletive] are too dumb to realize it.

Oh I'd wager a good many of them do realize it, they're just so hellbent on owning the libs they're willing to watch themselves suffer if it means folks like us are annoyed in any capacity at all.

Is he...railing on public defenders? I'm thoroughly confused by that whole rant.

Btw - I watched both of those clips of him bc they were less than 30 seconds. That's my trump limit

Dude, it's just, like, yeah, no horsefeathers the Republicans are going to pull out any and all stops if this is close enough for them to do so. It's when it starts crossing over into "they're gonna steal it because of COURTSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS" regardless of the actual results that it gets to be a bit much.

I believe about 120M were cast in 2016 and people are estimating 150ish for this cycle, so we're likely past the halfway mark


~136.7M in 2016.

I mean, I’m in a liberal city, but the county has just one early voting place

Damn, doesn’t Flavortown have like a million people? Johnson County (home of super liberal Iowa City) has had a 6 or 7 day a week early voting place but also had early voting campaigns going on in all of the surrounding communities over the past couple of weeks. It really made things easy for me.

Also kudos to Iowa City for having drive through voting. My son and I pulled in, flashed IDs, and were dropping off completed ballots within 10 minutes. It was a nifty little setup that I hope they continue for as long as this dumb country requires people to go out and cast ballots like savages.

Yeah, Franklin County has a lot of people. It's kinda lame how they set this up, but they seem to be moving a lot of people through. If anything, they were understaffed (maybe 20% of the 150 voting machines were being used at any one time, as there were only 15 check-in stations

man, rudy always sucked but after 9/11 everyone loved him. he could've ridden off into the sunset as a beloved former mayor, even after his 2008 campaign tanked so badly. but now he'll just be remembered as a creepy old dude and a loony conspiracy theorist.

Maybe it's not lost. Maybe it's just sitting in the same bin as the mail in ballots.

Does Biden have some kind of legal reform policy plan that bolsters public defenders or something that I missed? Or did he seriously just manifest public defenders into a political topic when literally no one was talking about it?

Saw a thing on Twitter. 23% of ballots in Miami Dade that were submitted as mail-in have been disqualified because of signatures.
