Maybe He Meant I Alone Can Rig It

Fixed Fresco

As I noted a couple of weeks ago, the only credible evidence of election rigging is DJT himself.

But wait, there’s more

The emails, dated Dec. 28, 2020, show the former acting head of DOJ’s civil division, Jeffrey Clark, circulating a draft letter — which he wanted then-acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen and acting deputy attorney general Richard Donoghue to sign off on — urging Georgia’s governor and other top officials to convene the state legislature into a special session so lawmakers could investigate claims of voter fraud.

“The Department of Justice is investigating various irregularities in the 2020 election for President of the United States,” the draft letter said. “The Department will update you as we are able on investigatory progress, but at this time we have identified significant concerns that may have impacted the outcome of the election in multiple States, including the State of Georgia.”

The draft letter states: “While the Department of Justice believe[s] the Governor of Georgia should immediately call a special session to consider this important and urgent matter, if he declines to do so, we share with you our view that the Georgia General Assembly has implied authority under the Constitution of the United States to call itself into special session for [t]he limited purpose of considering issues pertaining to the appointment of Presidential Electors.”

It’s always projection with them.

It’s also always abuse, aided by a cowed elite/corporate media that’s perpetually compelled to accept any/all GOP talking points as baselines while insisting Democrats must, for the sake of bipartisanship, forego popular policy initiatives and kick their base in the teeth…because, after all, the critical diner demographic in fundamentalist Trumpistan — amazingly — still supports Trump.

Kevin McCarthy can throw a hissy fit when his clown caucus is denied spots on the January 6th Committee, but Nancy Pelosi has to answer for calling him a moron…

Funny, I still haven’t seen any non-Cletus safaris to the significant swaths of this country that gave Biden a solid majority and a solid Electoral College majority, which DJT, in his typically ham-fisted way  — though with the tiniest ham fists ever — tried to nullify to the point of using his official position (ugh–and let’s not forget he was only constitutionally elected, not popularly elected) to push baseless allegations and ultimately inciting a riot.

I’m so goddamned tired of the Cult of the Savvy.

Sure, Fox Noise would exist without their enabling of it, but I really think it goes deeper. When, like the good librul I am, tune in to librul MSNBC (must mean GOP-Never-Trumpers in some kind of text message shorthand); anyway, it seems like a substantial number of the journos collecting their appearance fees are citing what can only be GOP sources.

No wonder toxic waste like Gingrich continues to slither through the ether.

And I’ll finish with this from Ian Millhiser
