Don't despair: It's not over till its over. Tucker
Carlson will send you his enlightening monologues into the temporary darkness.

This is far from over. This is like the first yellow flag a few laps in at the Daytona 500. Trump lives for the fight. He may or may not win, but this is a grudge match that goes to the last lap.

FYI, I always thought Trump's original goal was to use his 2016 campaign as advertising for a Trump TV network that he would launch after he LOST. The tell for me was the look on Melania's face the morning after. It certainly wasn't what I would call joy...

He seems to enjoy tormenting his adversaries and he'll have amply opportunity to do it win, lose, or draw.

Its not over until the hurricane hits san antonio

I agree with Bill Wade.
Having red whine with dinner Fred, I see.

Even if he has lost he is still President for over two more months with the power to issue EOs.

If he follows the precedent set when he took over he will show no help to the incoming transition team.

But it ain't over yet. If it is, as EE said above, it is highly likely he will be going down fighting.

Back in the 1950s my old man took me to the final championship game in Toronto, it was the St Catherine's BlackHawks versus the Edmonton Oilers, these were farm clubs for the NHL and caliber of play was very high. At any rate, the score with ten minutes to go in the 3rd period was Edmonton 5, St. Catherines zero. The final score in the most exciting game I will ever see was 6 to 5. This election is not over yet.

Leith,

"never-appointed but self-proclaimed poll watchers bumrushed the polling station."

Is that what that was. Where did you read that one? Any arrests made for that, since all the public news is about the windows being covered up to hide the vote rigging? Having worked on democratic campaigns in Michigan for almost a decade I'm quite familiar with poll watchers - which aren't 'appointed' by the govnerment. Perhaps you should read up on the law - the voting rights act - that is going to be enforced by way of the courts. The left really screwed the pooch this time. I wonder if there is personal liability for handing out sharpies instead of pens to voters? That will make a bunch of fun lawsuits.

Mark Gaughan,

Let me paint you a picture: Watching a fighter take on the clueless as the old guard of the DNC loses out to the left wing of the Democratic Party. It's the Black - H1B visa party now. Congtrats to Barack for making Hilary and Joe's people irrelevant for the future of the Democratic Party. Congrats to Trump for showing that a politician who will fight for working class Americans will be rewarded by massive increases in voting percentages for the GOP amongst all groups. Well,all but White Males over 65.

BTW it is Plantation Rum 20th Aniversary. I'm making it a double. Goes great with Schadenfreude too.

Polls that called 2016, Richard Baris at PPD, Trafalgar, Patrick Basham at the Democracy Institute, said this would be a repeat. Here in London I watched the comfortable win in Florida and the strong early results in the rust belt I expected. Like our host I was very shocked to wake up the next morning and see the results had made a dramatic reversal. I hope you are able to get to the bottom of it, Trump seemed to do so well in the Great Lakes States that the level of fraud is impossible to hide.

Fred,
Enjoy your rum! It's Highland Park 12 for me.

I made the mistake of watching CNN in the UK for election coverage, since Sky News and especially the BBC disgust me. I was shocked at just how biased the coverage was. They didn't even pretend to be even-handed. Not only that but their coverage is pretty useless. I just turned it on to try and get an update on the Pennsylvania count. They made a big deal of Biden closing the gap when it turned out he had barely moved the dial. I then waited to hear how many votes remained to be counted (surely this is of some importance?). Waited in vain as it turned out, since they never bothered to mention it. I guess the number remaining is how ever many it takes to get Biden over the line.

Watching on election night by county in the battleground states was very revealing.

In most states the large urban areas reported quickly after the polls closed, for example Las Vegas, Nevada and Hennepin County, Minnesota but in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Georgia it was the rural counties getting the votes in first while Milwaukee, Wayne, and the Atlanta counties stopped reporting. Milwaukee stopped at 41% with a +22% for Biden then at 4:00 a.m. they found record numbers of votes for Biden, far more voters than 2016, and the Biden margin in those votes had to be +60 to get to a final +40.

Sure looked like a plan - count all the counties except the main democratic urban stronghold then find just the votes needed to barely top off the count for Biden. Same thing happened with Wayne(Detroit) in Michigan. Remote upper peninsula votes were counted before Wayne.

Perhaps they were just overwhelmed but it was odd to me that it was quick and efficient in most urban counties to tabulate except for the battlegrounds.

Stueeeeeeeee

Georgia update:

About three hours ago, Republican GA Secretary of State stated that there are under 25k ballots left to count with Trump still leading by 18k. Now, apparently there are over 50-60k uncounted apparently found ballots...again in heavily democratic counties.

In Georgia, the counties are administrators of the election.

You can’t make this up.

Fred

Stueeeee,

Of course you can, which is exactly what'll they'll do until they are ahead, declare victory, launch the 'transition team' and all the rest. I'm sure another major Covid declaration in contested states is only hours away, as seen by Debbie "The UAW workers said they are voting for Trump" Dingell's latest FB post. Fun times. China must be happy, I'm sure they've got the goods on more of the dems.

Leith

Fred - Enjoy your 20th Anniversary rum. I stock my pantry with nine dollar plastic bottles of Military Special rum from the PX. No way I drink it neat, but it ain't half bad in coffee. And it's adequate for SWMBO's mojitos.

As for the Dem Party now being black, maybe so. They6've come a long way. Now picking presidents instead of picking cotton.
