The second best part of all this...

No one is talking about Trump anymore.

Three cheers for Jim Clyburn

Without his support in South Carolina when Joe’s primary campaign was on its last legs its unlikely we would be here today.

But Joe had faith, Jim had faith and the voters had faith.

And we won.

I know everyone wants to celebrate but the huge crowds are a bad look.

We’ve been (rightfully) chastising Trump for his irresponsible outdoor MAGA rallies. We have just hit the highest single day COVID new case total.

I know there’s no putting the genie back in the bottle with these crowds and I know people are ecstatic and relieved and celebrating ... but it will come back to bite us.

Edit: Yes, almost all are wearing masks. But without social distancing masks are less effective (even outside). Further, everyone is singing and chanting and yelling in jubilation. These types of vocalizations have been shown to be significant sources of the virus being expelled and transmitted, mask or no mask.


This is going to directly undermine Joe’s ability to get people on the right to accept and follow the guidelines that they have so far been ignoring.

Don't sorry about media "calling it" - we won and we've known since Wednesday.

This is all political theater for ratings.

Their calls don’t matter - the votes do. We won. We’ve known we had the votes since Wednesday.

Coloring the Map: Land Doesn't Vote - People Do

For far too long we've allowed the Republicans to publish their nationwide maps showing them with vast swaths of land colored red and tiny islands of blue sprinkled about. We need to change that perception by presenting that data in a more visually accurate and appealing format.

Each county is represented by a dot that is sized to represent the number of people in that county and not the landmass of that county.

Which groups focus on GOTV for us in GA?

I want to send some cash to GA for the senate runoff elections and want it to go to getting out the vote - not to advertising agencies and media companies.

Does anyone know which are the best groups I can look at and donate to?

Any Stacey Abrams associated groups?

To the people saying The Lincoln Project was worthless

1. Would you rather have had all those devastating ads crafted to target Joe instead of Trump?

2. Look at GA. Looking like at least 100,000 people who voted for Perdue (R) voted for Biden. Without them GA would have been called for Trump two days ago.

Supreme Court isn't going to save Trump.

There is no way in hell. They’re all conscious of the implications in tarnishing the reputation of their institution. They might do it for someone establishment and if they didn’t have to go too far out on a limb like in 2000, but not for Trump and not like this.

They’re not going to throw away Biden votes to give Trump the keys to the castle. Mark my words now, SCOTUS is going to tell Trump to get fucked.

Things are about to get very tense.

Many months ago Trump began planting the seeds of doubt in his base about the validity of the election and more specifically mail in ballots. He has been marinating them in misinformation and now they are ripe.

He has already begun to say that the election is being stolen in front of their very eyes.

I predicted weeks ago that Trump would incite violence with a tweet to the effect of:

“RIGGED ELECTION. DEEP STATE COUP. MAGA MUST RISE UP AND STOP THEM.”

There are going to be nearly 70 million people who voted for him when they’re all counted. If even 1 half of 1 percent take up arms on his behalf we are talking about 350,000 armed and angry people across the country.

Please be prepared for the next few weeks.

Edit: I’m not saying there will be a civil war or that this will impact Biden being sworn in. I’m saying we are going to see a surge in right wing domestic terrorism and violence.
