Let me put it this way. If you honestly believe that Joe and Kammie got elected because of voter ‘fraud,’ you’re either a racist, what my grandfather would call a ‘dem fool,’ or both. Am I saying that all those Republicans who think that some kind of vote hanky-panky occurred on, before or after November 3rd are racists or fools? No. Most of those folks just don’t like the fact that their guy didn’t win.
But if you happen to be someone who really thinks that our political system is rigged in favor of those inner-city residents who ‘sold’ their votes, or that those two Jews, George Soros, and Mike Bloomberg, are leading an international Socialist cabal, then you’ll believe any and every crackpot, right-wing conspiracy theory of all.
The good news is that no matter what happens in Georgia on Tuesday, the 306 Electoral College votes that went for the blue team will be certified on Wednesday, and that will be the end of that. So then what’s next?
What’s next is: (1). Who still needs to be named to the Biden cabinet? (2). who will end up selling leftover conspiracy theories and products to the MAGA brigade? (3). who will run for President on the GOP line in 2024? We already know who’ll represent the blue team, okay?
For the Cabinet, Joe needs to make three more picks: Commerce, Labor and the big gugga-mugga, AG. So far, four women, three Hispanics, two Blacks, and let’s not forget Harris, so for the women that makes five and for the Blacks that makes three. The first official photo of the Cabinet will be about as diverse as you can get.
Now as to the future of the MAGA market, there’s a little bit of a problem. Because it turns out that a guy named Donald Trump actually registered the motto, ‘Make America Great Again’ as a copyright in 2012. So, all these alt-right noisemakers and scam artists like Sydney Powell, Lin Wood and most of all, Rudy Giuliani, will have to come up with a new slogan or some other way to stay around and make a buck. In case you haven’t noticed, MAGA isn’t about rescuing America from what Kelly Loeffler calls the Socialist ‘threat.’
So now we come to the most important question of all, and it’s not whether Trump will run for President again in 2024. Fuggedaboutit. Trump’s done. As Grandpa would say: fartig! (read: finished) or better yet toyt! (read; dead.) Think anyone’s going to miss him if he doesn’t show up at the inauguration on January 20, 2021? Think again.
Who was the first person to announce he was running for President on the GOP line in 2016? It was Ted Cruz, who went on to win the Iowa caucuses and then bumped into a guy named Donald Trump. Until Trump started belching about all those Mexican rapists, Cruz seemed to have the alt-right stripe to himself. But nobody was going to out racist a racist like Trump in 2016, which is why the Cruz campaign quickly slid off the rails.
When Cruz announced he was pulling out of the 2016 primary campaign, he ended his speech by saying that his ‘movement’ would live on. Now why is it that the moment you try to appeal to the alt-right crowd in the GOP, you’re always leading a ‘movement?’ I’ll tell you why.
Because the trick is to somehow pretend that your brand of racism is different from everyone else’s racism because you’re not just appealing to the White voters in those red states, you’re also trying to pull out as many White voters as possible in a few blue states.
Whites will still make up three-quarters or more of the residents of Michigan, Wisconsin, and PA in 2024. Grab a handful here, a handful there and you might do what Trump was unable to do last year. Guess where the money that Cruz is raising to ‘help’ Loeffler and Perdue in the Georgia runoff is winding up? He’s donating it to Common Cause. Yea, right.
