This is terrifying. These “Constitutional sheriffs” are fascistic petty tyrants who believe they’re accountable to nobody. And their wingnut “posses,” hopped up on conspiracy theories, are gonna harass and intimidate voters. Or worse.

209 Electoral College votes down, 61 to go to ditch the EC without amending the Constitution. It'd be nice to live in a real #democracy !

I’d be popping popcorn if their infighting weren’t so damaging. #gop #maga

Someone dubbed the the "WankPanzer" and now that's its name.

I don't make the rules.

Almost as if the right is consumed by an endless number of stupid conspiracy theories and suspects that every protest on their side is a trap by the feds. #maga #trump #idiots

Bad news for the ragebait peddlers: You live by the FB algorithms and you die by the FB algorithms.

It’s inconvenient for the GOP that Russia attacks Ukraine with the very same Shahed drones every single day and they’re effectively supporting it with their obstruction.

Seen in the wild in Kingston NY. It looks more ridiculous up close than it appears to be in pictures.

I've always seen #Biden as the heavy fave bc I know early polling reflects views of the incumbent rather than a choice, it took a perfect storm for #Trump to win while losing the pop vote by 3 m in '16, the GOP's done poorly ever since and he'll be facing court dates all year.

The big problem with the punditocracy starting the horse race 18 mos early with the narrative that Trump's ahead is that if Biden wins, even by a healthy margin, the early coverage will just help convince more morons that the election is rigged and with that, there will be more MAGA harassment and violence.

The wingnut former judge Robin Vos hired to investigate Trump's 'rigged' BS was fired for embarrassing the WI GOP with his shenanigans and is now trying to get Vos removed. His recall petition wasn't certified for lack of valid signatures and he says the count was rigged.

Only the best people!

I’m fine with them burning through their cash on legal bills and contacting people like me.

Five days before #Election2024, I’m getting on a plane and flying to Thailand. Two days before, I’m getting on a boat with no wifi and going diving in the Andaman Sea. We’ll dock two days after the election and hopefully find out what happened.

This brilliant plan is mental healthcare.

This is so, so bad. Pundits focus so little attention on what people should really be worried about. #fascism #election2024

I would love to see some reporter follow up just one time by asking if these clowns also think there were "legitimate concerns" when Trump accused Ted Cruz of rigging the 2016 Iowa caucuses or when he claimed the Emmys were rigged after his dumb game show lost to The Great Race.

Maybe also ask how legitimate those concerns could be given that throughout 2020, Trump said the election would be rigged if he lost but legit if he won.

Obviously Alabama isn't in play. They're just gratuitous assholes.

"Four years ago, when Republicans held their convention Aug. 24-27, the Legislature passed a bill to make a one-time change in the deadlines and accommodate the GOP."

@BlueWaver22 @hankg Omce the delegates are assigned they can hold a virtual vote prior to the convention and then do it again for show in August.
