    Mccain was lucky to win MO in 2008. Facebook is a hell of a drug.

    but as Kansas has shown, it doesnt take much for the electorate to get Brownback'd.

    We don’t want you to vote. Purge.

    But if you do, you’ll need to spend significantly more time doing so. Fewer machines and locations.

    And now that you’ve voted, it counts only as a fraction. Gerrymandering.

    When I used to see notre dame - fsu games when they were good and mattered in the 90s I never could’ve imagined the two coaches would one day become such ardent supporters of the snake oil mob president as old men, but I guess that was kind of their lane too.

    they are also raising millions more a day. Not sure what the plan is for all the money if they aren’t going to go all in on any state that’s in play. I just don’t see what they are saving the money for.

    Don’t worry guys it’s just going away!

    I really do think that this could have an impact on the turnout on Election Day in some of the states with the worst outbreaks. Some people might be sick themselves, in the hospital or be dealing with a family member in trouble and not worried about voting. Some of the states that count are these states. Dems vote by mail and vote early push could really help more than we realize because of this.

    Just checked ESPN for the score, and am left wondering how the fuck UNC got ranked that high. Then again, a SMU team led by Sonny fucking Dykes is #17 too, so it's pretty clear that this year's rankings mean squat

    My biggest fear is all of his tweets about California/NY fraud. In Agents of Chaos Celeste Wallander said Russia was in our voting machines in 2016 to seed doubt but realized they didn’t have to with their rust belt disinformation campaign panning out. I could see Russia openly fucking with Trump votes in states like California/NY then discretely manipulating small margins in FL/OH/NC/GA/ETC. If they can’t swing enough states there will be evidence of a foreign power against Trump and he’ll go to the SCOTUS. If they do swing enough votes the only talk will be on the corruption of the Dem states (Cal/NY) that openly worked with Russia and not the discreet manipulation.

    those margins are closer than I would like but we just need to win.

    I still wish I knew what the turnout model for these are. Are some of them assuming 2012, 2016, a combo of both or a newer guesstimate of turnout?
