    Nitpicking here, but that really isn't something that should be allowed, tbh.

    It isn't nitpicking. You're saying she lied on her ballot and possibly (law?) committed election fraud. And it's hard to argue with that, considering she put someone else's name on her ballot.

    Also:

    China congratulates Biden/Harris on their victory after Arizona's results were called last night. China was holding out, but no longer.

    Also Clint Eastwood held office as mayor too.

    It technically isn't. In the article, it's mentioned that she already straightened it out with the election office.

    Like, I get we want to take a hard stance on things because we've seen too often cases where POC vote and something happens and they get thrown in prison for voting. Regardless of age, skin color, etc. It wasn't an intentional case of election fraud and she shouldn't be prosecuted or thrown in prison over it.

    Very likely, when she was married (she is 94), she is from a time when things like her checkbook probably read "Mr and Mrs. James Blalock".

    The whole reason we have people taking signatures and watching identification is for reasons like this. If they wanted her to sign it as Agnes Blalock and not Mrs. James Blalock, it should've been handled at the time she voted. It shouldn't have gotten to a point where a big spectacle is made on national news as fake proof of widespread voter fraud.

    They love elevating celebrities. Tbf, the Dems also elected Al Franken. So... both sides?

Isn't she on her way out anyway? So why would anyone waste ammunition on her?

    It's more about the message it is trying to send. Look at me, everybody is fethinin and I'm the adult.
    Well no, only one side is trying to fight really.

    The likes of AOC are correct that democrats lost a battle that they should have won this time. I mean, by any objective measurement Trump left a bigger mess then what Bush left and still Democrats lost allot of important battles.

    These fake moderates are a dying breed because they aren't really moderates, they are just lazy.
    Being a moderate doesn't mean that you "compromise with horrible monsters", being a moderate means that your open to different ideas.

    AOC is the true moderate as far as I can tell.

    This might be the strongest rebuke of Trumpism I have seen from a GOP member:

    President Trump's GOP wall of support is cracking
    http://lite.cnn.com/en/article/h_094...efe3379fc47697
    In making his argument, Lankford noted that after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the bipartisan committee that investigated them found that the compressed time frame for the transition after the contested 2000 election may have contributed to the lack of preparedness for the attack.

    Clyburn and others however aren't wondering

    House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn isn't happy with his Democratic caucus for allowing slogans to dominate the narrative about their party, telling "Axios on HBO" that phrases like "defund the police" cost them crucial seats in the House and Senate.
    "That phrase — 'defund the police' — cost Jaime Harrison tremendously,"

    "Stop sloganeering," he said. "Sloganeering kills people. Sloganeering destroys movements. Stop sloganeering. And let's go about the business of representing people and building hopes and aspirations for people."

    Rep. Marc Veasey of Texas said these slogans gave Republicans ammunition to use in “commercial after commercial” against their candidates.

    Rep. Abigail Spanberger, who eked out a re-election victory in Virginia, took aim at her colleagues who have embraced the "defund the police" movement and said Democrats needed to be better at fighting the "socialism" label.

    So in the end, it looks like 538 got every state but North Carolina and Florida right. 54 out of 56, counting special state districts and DC. Will that be enough to convince Republican flat earthers to trust science and reason and the god damn news again? I doubt it.

    I get what you're going for, but this is a bad example. Al Franken was not just an SNL writer, but he was also a political activist, getting a graduate degree in political science from Harvard. He could have been a complete nobody in the entertainment circle, and still highly qualified.

    EDIT: P.S. Al Franken, amongst other things, wrote "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot" and while doing so did a great job in spearing Republican hypocrisy. Amongst other things, he proved that Rush Limbaugh never voted for Reagan.

    I don't get it. If she didn't remarry after her husband died, isn't she Mrs. James Blalock? If there is a technically here, I take it Trump wants to keep the vote since it was for him?

    Even then, 538 was only going by available data. The pollsters were having a difficult time nailing down how many Trumpsters like Kellhound will lie about their votes. Polls are only as accurate as the honesty of those taking them. And, it would seem that about 5% of voters are willing to lie, and say they don't actually support a racist shitbag like Trump, when they actually do.

    This is a poster saying that people are at fault for being the victims of terrorism, because they are not white.

    Not on government records that a voting ballot would be compared to.

    Sanders isn't really shutting up and frankly if she did that we would have another Trump in 2024.
    Trump ran the exact same campaign as Obama with the addition of Rasim, sure he was never going to drain the swap but that's really not the point.
    Obama 2008 campaign is everything that AOC and Sanders want today and which I believe Obama really wanted as well. Obama didn't fight hard enough and the results are clear, Republicans destroyed Democrats.

    Edit:
    Your just advocating the losing strategy that created Trump. Democrats are at least 30% to blame for "Trump" if not 50%.
