The numbering of cousins goes straight down the line. Michael and Elizabeth are siblings. Their respective children will be first cousins. Their respective grandchildren will be second cousins. And so on and so forth.
The “removed” part comes when you’re mixing generations. Michael’s kids and Elizabeth’s kids will be first cousins. Therefore, Michael’s kids and Elizabeth’s grandkids will be first cousins once removed, and Elizabeth’s kids and Michael’s grandkids will be first cousins once removed.
So John and Fiona being second cousins once removed means that either Fiona and one of John’s parents are second cousins, or else John and one of Fiona’s parents are second cousins.

If you say so. But the fact remains that the way the election is set up, unless a candidate has a shot of winning the 11+ states one needs (the top 11 states add up to 270 electoral votes, and since that list includes both California and Texas, the winner is going to need to carry some of the smaller ones, too), going third party is just giving yourself a self-inflicted nose job. Yes, you stood by your convictions—and now the party most diametrically opposed to your views gets four years to play.
I wasn’t inspired by Bill Clinton, but I damn well have been inspired by Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer.
The same way Ho-hos frequently do.
