It's still very different, because I don't think that appointing officials for lifetime would work in the executive or legislative branches.

I mean there's still the Electoral Collage vote, I mean many of the states have laws that makes it illegal to vote against the State's popular vote, but there's no law IIRC to 'spoil the ballot' (pretty sure there were a few of them during Obama's first election - last time I looked into it).


I mean I always thought the Electoral Collage existed to stop avoid the plebs getting too angsty (though a nation is pretty ****ed when it has  a runaway population).

Oh my, The Democrat Joe Biden won November's contest with 306 electoral college votes to Republican Donald Trump's 232.Electoral college confirms Joe Biden as next President

So much for the last delusion of Trump supporters, that magically the electoral college would most be "faithless" to the will of American people, and destroy democracy. This is a glorious day.

Also Representative Paul Mitchell is leaving the Republican Party, the Michigan congressman announced Monday, citing his dismay with party’s efforts to delegitimize the 2020 presidential election. I can't blame him.

No no no you got it all wrong. They don't elect a President who is then congratulated by Putin. Whoever Putin congratutales, becomes the President.

So on the eve of the election I put this out on social media.

Multiple choice for people like me.

Create your own.  But the rules are clear.  Under no circumstance is Donald Trump an option.

A.  I'm voting Biden/Harris but I'm angry at Joe Biden for all the bad stuff he did in the senate.

B.  I'm voting Biden/Harris but I'm angry at Kamala Harris for all the bad stuff she did in California.

C.  I'm voting Biden/Harris, with a clothespin.  I'm a Warren supporter still angry with Bernie for splitting the progs.

D.  I'm voting Biden/Harris, with a clothespin.  I'm a Bernie supporter still angry at Warren for splitting the progs.  And I'm especially angry at all the young people who didn't come out to vote in the primaries.  We could have had them, man.

E.  I'm voting Biden/Harris but Tulsi owned that b***h so hard.

F.  I'm voting Biden/Harris but I think Biden is a an invalid who is going to be removed via the 25th amendment.

G.  I'm voting Biden/Harris, but snow you.  Dennis Kucinich.  The president we need.  But not the president we deserve.

H.  I'm writing in Stein/Nader because I will NEVER support the corporatist sellout democrats.  You hear me?  NEVER!!

I.  I'm writing in Stewart/Colbert/Oliver  because that's the world I want to live in.

J.  What I says, but I'm still voting Biden/Harris.

K.  I'm voting Biden/Harris but I'm tired of seeing better, more qualified women, have to play second fiddle to a man.

L.  I'm voting Biden/Harris because I believe in them.

M....

Didn't get as much traction as I would have liked.  Maybe there's such a thing as too many options?

If anyone is interested, I personally went with C.  I was such a Warren fanboi I applied to work on her campaign.  Didn't even get a response until a week out from Minnesota's primary.  By that time, she was energetically, if not mathematically, out of the race.  It was disappointing to say the least.

There's someone in my neighborhood that has a campaign sign that said "Any functioning adult 2020". Where's that option?

Also, it appears that Mitch McConnell finally acknowledged this morning that Biden was the winner. Does this mean that the GOP will finally recognize reality?

I don't know about the GOP but for Trump the answer is never. He has been promoting misremembered facts or conspiracy theories since at least 9/11 in 2001. He never backpedaled on the Birther Movement or on Ted Cruz magically stealing the election in Iowa or anything else he's said. He'll spread lies until he's no longer president and then he will continue to spread lies afterwards.

Now's the time to unify, right?  That's what the victors always claim they want after an election.

Biden should either find Jennifer Granholm a different role in the cabinet, or better yet, try to rebrand and reorganize the administrative departments to make them better fit their titles. Right now, the Department of Energy - sort of by accident - has a mish-mashed dual function of being a department that actually deals with energy and also the department that deals with the arsenal of nuclear weapons, both active and retired. People going into the position might be thinking they'll be at the head of clean energy reform end up instead dealing with something entirely foreign to them. Obama had top physicists working in that capacity during his years, but really, the department should probably be reorganized altogether or split.
