Until the last few days, the consensus seemed to be that Biden had so many signs on people's lawns and was so far ahead in the polls, he had whole thing sewn up


Where have you read or heard anything that suggested lawn sign conversation equated to a consensus that the election was sewn up?


Maybe from this guy...

Have some dignity Donald. Er, perhaps not.

I’d say it’s a spectacular fall from grace, but no grace to be found with that moron.

Donald Trump’s concession speech
Opinion by
Alexandra Petri
Columnist
November 7, 2020 at 11:37 a.m. EST


In case the thing stopping President Trump from delivering a concession speech is the fact that nobody has drafted one for him, I have gone ahead and done so:

Well, people are saying they don’t want me to be president anymore. And they are saying it very strongly, with their ballots. Did you know they can do that? I didn’t know that.

So I am not going to be the president anymore. Not anymore! I thought Article II said that if you’re the president, they let you do it as long as you want to! But they have an Article I and an Article III, folks! I and III. Maybe even IV or V! Could be VI. I said, where are they finding all these articles? And they said, the Constitution.

So at first, I said, they’re stealing the election. Look at what they’re doing! They have gotten all these millions and millions of people to fill out little pieces of paper, and they’re trying to give the presidency away to whoever has the most little pieces of paper with their name on it, whether that’s me or Kanye or Joe Biden! Even though I’ve only had it four years and it’s like new. I’ve barely touched it. And they’re saying I have to give it away just because fewer of the little pieces of paper have my name on them, in certain, specific states? That doesn’t seem fair. So I said, what is this? What’s going on here? People, we’ve got to stop the count, I said! Stop the count. We can’t let this happen to our beautiful voting. And the man who is always calling me sir, he came in his hard hat, a big guy, tough, he said, sir, actually, that is voting.

I couldn’t believe it. I said, these millions and millions of little tiny pieces of paper, with names and signatures, you mean to tell me that’s people casting their legitimate votes in accordance with the laws of democracy, and he said, yes, that is how you got to be president the first time, and I said, I thought I was president because the map and maybe something to do with God, and he said, That too, sir, and then he sobbed onto my shoulder and called me ‘sir’ one last time.

I thought they were doing devious things, I said. I kept seeing all the numbers and they didn’t make any sense, like my net worth, but bad. I kept saying, wait a minute, what’s going on here? Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada. Why are we looking at these states? Why are they important? Why are we watching a man in Gap khakis yell at a map into the night? Did the map do something wrong? It is red in some places and blue in other places. It seems like the red and the blue are fighting each other by doing math? I have a great brain, and I knew that if I were not following, nobody would be following.

But it turns out in some places Joe had more little papers than I had, and in other places I had more than he had. And I said, it’s very complicated. And I said, so whoever gets the most paper, that’s the president, and they said, no, we have a system called the electoral college which is a vestigial system from our nation’s founding, and it means that you can have the most papers and still not be the president. That was how you became president in the first place. And that’s okay? I said, and they said, no, but it used to benefit you, so we did not complain about it, and now it is too late.

So that’s what it is, folks! A little thing called an election. Most people have never heard of it, but it’s been happening every four years, for all this time. Centuries! And it says I’m not the president anymore. It’s incredible, isn’t it? And then they came up to me and they said, sir, we have to go by what it says, so I said, okay, that’s what they want, give them what they want!

And they said, Mr. President, sir, it’s not up to you.

She's often too snarky-cute for my tastes, but she nailed this one.

I would’ve just had something in my contract that said the fee doubled every time he said something in public.

The gang that couldn’t shoot straight? Once again I am reminded of how shocked I was for Trump to win in 2016.

Are those sycophantic GOP Senators still too afraid of the Devil to face him down?

A shambles.

Their voters are his voters. They can't alienate their base. That's been their problem for the past few years and it will probably continue to bedevil them.

Hopefully, this dynasty will be nipped in the bud when Joe wins later.

they must be all shitting it at what comes next.


I don't see them worrying in the slightest. They have guardian angels all around, and are so confident, arrogant and gilded that they don't just think they are above the law, they know it. They've done nothing wrong, and they have no conscience. They haven't lost, they never have. They've won. And will continue to win. There is no other way of looking at it. And they will go about their lives as if nothing has changed and live happily ever after.

And he has just led them to the biggest vote in their history as a party.
I am genuinely curious over how he will concede, if he does (publicly). He's never done anything like it before, and it's hard (impossible) to imagine him saying anything even vaguely resembling that he didn't win, or that somebody else won. It's idiotic to me when commentators are talking about how he needs to be magnanimous or show McCain's concession speech or something similar. It's not him, never has been, never will be. I'm assuming the only way that it can be done is to effectively repeat the mantra that he has won and that the news is fake and the election was a fraud, but that he will continue to take the matter to the courts. So not a formal concession, but rather just an empty rant with nothing clear, and any transition, assuming there is one, is done quietly behind the scenes with periodic outbursts of "this is a fraud".
