It is 2020, what did you expect?
Did you expect a flawless, clean election with a well-defined outcome? On what basis would you expect that?
A month ago Democratic strategist James Carville predicted a Joe Biden landslide, a lock. Last night on MSNBC, the Ragin’ Cajun disappointed me when he declined to eat crow.
“I’m always an optimist,” he alibied, when he expressed his “hope.”
Nope. It was a prediction and if the opinion he gives is based on hope rather than on facts and figures, MSNBC ought to find someone else. (The network won’t, because it also operates on Leftist hopes.)
[Editor’s note: At this point we pause to allow the Left to bellow “Faux News.”]
Watching TV this morning, there is an army of spin doctors, with Left and Right declaring victory, looking at the same numbers.
I’m writing at about 8 a.m. Wednesday, with Pennsylvania hanging in the balance, along with Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin. Some may be resolved today, others may take longer.
Around 6 hours earlier, I saw President Donald J. Tump come to a podium in the White House, declare victory, and threaten to take his case to the Supreme Court. He said he wants the counting of ballots to stop.
His case will go something like this: I don’t like where this is heading so stop the ballot count.
Democrat Biden expressed confidence but asked for patience, showing himself more presidential than the crybaby in the White House.
[Editor’s note: To satisfy Trumpster conspiracy theorists, the statement was actually made by Kamala Harris in a Biden suit, as she has already completed her coup.]
There are probably millions of uncounted mail-in ballots that were posted prior to Tuesday’s deadline. They must be counted.
The Good News for Trump is that he won Florida and Ohio and has a lead in the northern tier Blue Wall. At this moment.
The Good News for Biden is that most of the lagging votes come from big cities and big cities, by and large, are Democratic.
The Good News for America is there were no major disturbances on Election Day.
The delayed result was expected by many — that the race would be close enough to be decided by the mailed ballots and those would not be counted Tuesday night.
The numbers will change. It is still a jump ball.
