They’re gonna jam through a SCOTUS pick even though voting has started, because OF COURSE.
I swear to god though, if we win the White House & flip the Senate and then do nothing for the sake of “unity” – I’m going to be even angrier than I am now, and I didn’t think it possible, but I realize now, OH IT IS.
Lines for early voting here in my county are hours long. Granted, we only have one place open for the first month, but folks are not messing around. In a neighboring county, more in person absentee ballots were cast in 3 days than all absentees cast in the 2000 general election.
The county GOP were the ones shooting off their mouths this summer that “if you can go to the grocery store, you can go to the polls” – well, be careful what you wish for, fuckers.
At least the weather will be nice on Friday for voting and I guess I’ll take a book or something. Hopefully the local chucklefuck Klan members won’t be there, cause I don’t think I would be able to shut up and ignore them. (Per the AP, of the ~60 there on Saturday, only 3 were registered to vote.)
I cannot emphasize how much I hate, hate, HATE the fact that DeJoy has fucked the post office so badly that I don’t feel like I can trust them to get me a ballot in the first place. (Absentee by mail was SO GREAT earlier this year.) But one package lost at the beginning of the month with a response of “are you *sure* you didn’t get it?” (their own tracking says it wasn’t delivered) followed by another destroyed not two weeks later… Yeah, faith fucking lost there. This is after 30 years of service with no issues. (OK, one Christmas card delivered in June after getting stuck in a sorting machine for six months.)
I’m realizing I have yet another project I have to do over the next couple months – go annoy all my reps again with the question of “If we win the White House and flip the Senate – what is your plan to undo the damage done over the last four years?”
Because my god, there is so much we have to fix, and we can’t just pretend none of this happened for the sake of “unity” or “moving forward” or trying not to upset centrists or god forbid, ruffle the feathers of the R’s.
