The cruelest about face of all
We believe the gray lab coats here at Blaska Policy Werkes are smiling but it’s hard to tell, given that they’re wearing “Recall Satya 2020” face masks to guard against the spread of the progressive virus.
They are smiling (we think) at our … acquaintances OUTRAGE! at the Orange Ogre’s suggestion (punctuated with not one but three question marks) that the November 3 presidential election be delayed until everyone can safely vote in person and be seated ringside at World Wrestling Entertainment events.
Allowing for the fact that outrage is their natural state it is a strange turn of events, since a scant four months ago liberals, progressives, and socialists were beating the drums of doom over holding the Spring election IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC! WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!
If you will recall ( … ahem) Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway was among a group of Wisconsin mayors at the time who urged state officials “to step up and stop the State of Wisconsin from putting hundreds of thousands of citizens at risk” through in-person voting.” The letter also was signed by the mayors of Milwaukee, Green Bay and other cities. Also in April 2020:
- The American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin: “People seem to literally be taking their life into their hands to attempt to vote.”
- Dave Zweifel, editor emeritus of The Capital Times: “GOP bosses in Wisconsin have no shame.” (Link here.)
- Comrade John Nichols bleated the Spring election was “The cruelest election in the history of Wisconsin!” (We’re not making this up!)
The cruelest, that is, until election returns showed the liberal supreme court candidate defeated the sitting conservative justice. Then, not so cruel. And no one died.
That was then, this is today
We are a democracy, not a dictatorship. The Constitution empowers Congress to set the date of the election, and Congress set that date for November. Nothing President Trump says, does, or tweets can change that fact.
Only Congress can change the date of a Presidential election. Madison and the city attorney’s office stand ready to defend your right to #VOTE.
Comrade John assures that “Trump can’t delay the election — so he’s trying to make it a chaotic mess. … The way to counter his lies is with facts and an action plan for easy, safe, and fair voting on November 3.“
Blaska’s Bottom Line: That was cruel, Comrade Nichols.
And one wild thought: The Werkes thinks it entirely possible that Donald Trump, narcissist that he is, will not seek re-election rather than risk defeat.
