it always strikes me how endlessly cruel someone would have to be to perpetrate something like this.

Here's a scary thought: what happens if, on the night of the election, Trump looks to be leading by a substantial margin, and makes, if not a victory speech, at least a speech warning about attempts to "steal" the election, but once mail-in ballots are counted and those results roll in over the next week or two, Biden pulls ahead?

And let's also keep in mind that Trump put a hack donor in charge of the USPS, who has been systematically hamstringing that agency, leading to huge backups and delays--possibly to the point where many ballots won't be accepted since they won't get delivered on time.

Most people should be getting their ballots in now, and if they wait to the last minute they should personally drive their ballot to a polling station.

Trump admits that he and Republicans in Congress are blocking new COVID-19 relief because they won't sign off on giving more money for the USPS and election security measures to allow for expanded vote-by-mail, even though we're in the middle of a deadly pandemic that has hit the US harder than anywhere else.

Hey, Donald: you're not supposed to say the quiet parts about voter suppression out loud.

Steve Bannon has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering. He's the second Trump campaign chair, after Paul Manafort, to be criminally charged.

No he won't.  Bannon and Trump had a very bad falling out when Bannon got ousted.  This?  This'll make Trump giggle like a schoolgirl.

Ironbite-cause Bannon went against him or some shit like that.

Yeah, Bannon went against Trump's family, and tried to oust Kushner.

Who responded by outplaying the daydrunk Nazi and getting him basically destroyed.

Anyone think the RNC is really going to sway voters? Or do you think most voters have made up their minds by now?

The problem with assuming voters have made up their mind is that it ignores that swing voters tend to be FUCKING IDIOTS. So many swing voters are willfully ignorant of how bad Trump is doing and that he is literally trying to make himself a fascist dictator either because they just don't want to actually stand for something or have convinced themselves that they're "above" partisan politics.

As someone reminded me, Trump's other campaign chair (Corey Lewandowski) was also twice charged criminally, once for concealing a loaded hangdun in a bag, and also for shoving someone in a scrum during the 2016 campaign. Charges were dropped in both cases.

EDIT:



EDIT #2: Meanwhile, Trump kicked off the RNC by claiming that if he loses, the election was rigged.

American democracy is in its death throes.

EDIT #3: An acquaintance of mine (with whom, to be sure, I disagree on almost all political matters) wrote this piece about how American democracy might die.
