It will be interesting to see how all the court cases come out, in many states, including these two. Ditto for the electoral messing around case in NC.
. . . “and, Russia helped!” $50M for the GOP campaigns. What American patriots! Sad. :’(
Anyone remember when Republicans were HONEST, and actually were LOYAL AMERICANS??
I live in Michigan and appreciate the spotlight on what “our” legislature is doing to… woops for us in it’s lame duck session.
For all the noise that Republicans make about voter fraud, it always seems that they’re the ones committing it.
Republicans are undemocratic pigs.
@Masterkrain: well, let’s look at the Republican presidents:
Dubya – Got us into two wars for oil (still going!) and sank the economy by giving away money to his rich friends, and let bin Laden’s family escape the country right after 9/11 — the ONLY planes allowed to leave the country during the grounding, incidentally.
George H. W. Bush: at least he teamed up with other people to fight a war for oil…yeah, no. Ignored the AIDS crisis, pardoned all his friends involved in the Iran-Contra scandal — which, let us not forget, was trading WEAPONS to an ENEMY to get Reagan elected – open treason, just covered up a lot better than #45 is capable of doing.
Ronald Reagan: ran for DECADES as a deficit hawk and then abandoned it completely (and conveniently) when he got into office, giving money away to his rich friends (I sense a pattern here). Racist as Hell, and moved a lot of Southern Democrats into the GOP column through his racist dog-whistling, using the Southern Strategy in spades. LAUGHED at the AIDS crisis, which included Hollywood friends of his. And, oh, yes, when he was PRESIDENT of the actor’s union, he worked secretly with the FBI to throw the people he was elected to protect under the HUAC bus.
Ford: Relatively nice guy. Not too bright. Defended Nixon despite evidence that GOP senators believed. Pardoned Nixon, which protected the GOP from its mistakes right up to the present day and established the principle that as long as you get away with it, you’re cool. Maybe he honestly believed it was the right thing to do – but Nixon’s team also pushed him to do it. Oh, and Nixon got a comfy check from the taxpayer for the rest of his evil life as a consequence. Maybe he wasn’t deliberately evil, but the consequences of his actions definitely were.
Nixon: I mean, c’mon.
Eisenhower: Well, he DID talk about the military-industrial complex – which he already knew about from the inside, having helped build it…
I think this one of Mr. Heller’s better works. One wonders why the Repubs aren’t realizing that they are opening the door to have the same techniques use against them…
