It almost went last time, didn’t it? Killing your electors is turning out to be not such a good strategy for Trump.

Because Trump refused to wear a mask (until today) his cult members have done the same and are now paying for it. Evolution in action.

It's a great story. I bet you could have heard a pin drop when she told it.

Just because one of these anecdotes feels right doesn't make it true, especially I am afraid when you hear it in America. It's a sad state of affairs when you have to treat 'News from America' in the same way you treat 'Kim is definitely dead this time' from Japan or South Korea.

Yeah, but it’s mythologically powerful. And the fact that it is People that is repeating it means it’s part of the national memory now.

then again, just because something is an Urban Legend doesn't mean it didn't happen of course.

Missy should go to all those parties to prove it's a hoax

The thing about anecdotes that reinforce your opinion is that even if they’re not true, they should be.

Thank God he’s now given us permission to wear a mask! I was afraid I would be arrested for disloyalty if I went out and wore won.

I miss Rebelyell, and how he would shit himself every time someone spelled “God” with an uppercase G.
