PA's Supreme Court just threw out Trump's Hail Mary pass.  Republicans are melting down and screaming about Stalinism as we speak.

Unanimously dismissed -- which includes the 2 Republicans.

 

Majority opinion's major point... "You should have challenged this before the election, you waited until far too late". (Paraphrasing.)

 

Ruling also forbids the plaintiffs from refiling, even as a reconfigured complaint. 

 


 

Evidently the Wisconsin recount that cost the Turducken Campaign $3,000,000...  netted a few hundred more votes in margin for Biden.

Hell, even Limbaugh started calling out Trump's lawyers for not having the goods they're repeatedly promised.

Yeah, that new law, even after the "adjustment" sounds............pretty abusable.

Yeah, but that struck me as a little "you're failing daddy" with a side of "prepared to abandon ship", so yes smarter than Levin but he doesn't earn a cookie.

Limbaugh gets no cookies, I just thought it was surprising that he'd call them out so aggressively.

The (original) actor who played Darth Vader has died.  He was 85 years old.

I used to think the French were a little too inclined to get out there and protest, but the last few years is making me rethink that.

The National Review decides that now is the best possible time to be critical of Trump.  Not when he was putting migrants in cages, not when he was lying to us about the pandemic, but now when he won't accept the result of the election.

Interesting they focused on the debt/deficit itself so much, as she has been happy in the past to put on the "deficit hawk" hat when it pleases the CAP donors.

"Nike and Coca-Cola are among the major companies and business groups lobbying Congress to weaken a bill that would ban imported goods made with forced labor in China’s Xinjiang region, according to congressional staff members and other people familiar with the matter, as well as lobbying records that show vast spending on the legislation."

Audi back in the top class of prototype racing after leaving in 2016? I haven't been this excited since Glickenhaus announced his LMH project.

The West Point stuff is really neat because of the history behind it, but I gotta say I prefer the Navy Academy's Marble looks.
