Fortunately, Pompey will take this very personally as he claims to be a Catholic. Personally, I’d love to see the Pope comment on Barr.
Thanks to Republican efforts to suppress voter turnout, Texas did not expand vote by mail in midst of a global pandemic. As a result, we will know the winner of the Texas presidential election on election night. If Texas turns blue that night, and its 38 electoral votes go to Biden, then Trump would have no viable path to victory, and the election would be over that night, before Trump’s lawyers can get through the courtroom doors to stop the vote counts in other states.
If Biden wins Texas along with the likely blue states of Colorado, New Mexico, Minnesota and Virginia, he would still win the White House even if he loses all the swing states of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, Arizona and Florida. Trump, on the other hand, cannot win without Texas.
Texas is not only more racially diverse and urban than most other swing states, but also more rapidly trending Democratic. Unlike the Rust Belt, where the polls underestimated Trump’s strength on Election Day, the polls in Texas underestimated Hillary Clinton’s performance by 4.9 percent.
When you try to pretend to be presidential, all the while clueless how the internetz don't play that.
That reminds me of the stories some academic colleagues told me - around when I first started teaching - of how the exam papers submitted by some students - who were high on substances when writing - comprised little but the student's name, written again, and again, and again.
Meanwhile, the students in question, buoyed up by a cheerful but somewhat irrational optimism, one that was not supported by independent evidence, tended to be of the opinion that they had written brilliant papers.
Wow that is an insane amount of money. I know it's tight but I hope he crushes Graham, he's such a hypocritical asshole who deserves to have his ass handed to him and after that debate performance could very well be on his way out. Go Jamie!Wow, no wonder Lindsey Graham was crying on TV about Jaime Harrison having raised so much money. Guess Graham's just totally confounded about how a liberal Black candidate for the Senate in South Carolina could end up with an $86 million war chest in the effort to send Graham back to private life. $57m of that in just the past quarter.
