The EC vote threw up no surprises, without even a single faithless elector. I did tell you all not to expect miracles or get too invested in this idiotic drama, not least for the sake of your own mental health (or your financial health – if you took the 10% post-elections odds seriously).
The screeching over voter fraud just what it is, a carnival of clowns who were never serious about overturning anything, loud grifters milking millions from credulous and highly agitated boomers while the campaign couldn’t be bothered interacting with, let alone funding, Trump-friendly data scientists who were willing to do the statistical analysis that could actually get the courts to take a second look. That is because this is all theater to get their base to turn out at the Georgia runoffs on Jan 5.
In related news, Putin has congratulated Biden, strictly following protocol, in which this happens either after one of the candidates concedes (as HRC did on election night) or the issue is formally resolved through the Electoral College.
Looking forwards to the rightoid adaptations of Russiagate over the next weeks, months, and years, which I expect to be just as inane and ten times dumber. It’s already revving up.

Meanwhile, Russiagate: The Original, having been dealt its coup de grace a few days before the elections with the revelation that Steele’s “insides” came from some Cyprus-based alcoholic angry from having lost her job, is already moving on to Chinagate before Biden even assumes the Presidency. Impressively clockwork.
