  • What makes me angriest about the "Socialism" rhetoric supposedly working is the utter hypocrisy. If you really think what the Democrats are selling is socialism then you go out and campaign against Social Security and Medicare. It's the same FUCKING thing.

    • I know it is petty to be bothered by this headline, but I am. Why not just "Biden takes lead?" Why the added editorializing? You win by 1 vote or by 100 or by 1,000,000 they still call you the winner. You lead by 1 or by 1000 you still lead. As well, we all know the final margin will be much, much larger than just a couple of thousand votes. Not a capital crime, but I didn't like it.

        I don't have a problem with it. As you said, in the end a lead wins, be it slim or not, but it is slim.

This stinks more of the crap Politico would write not someone at WaPo.

            The media's incessant need to try and paint the Dems as always one step away from imploding is almost as bad as their coddling of Trump and normalizing his BS for most of his presidency.

Keep up the watch, keep drilling it home and make him more miserable...his response will be the same either way. When it is called I dont want there to be any doubt...and I want the YUGE numbers plastered all over the place in friggin Prime Time.

                        Hey dont get me wrong...I will be happy as heck they called it but I think he is reaching with his reasoning. Its like he thinks if the election is called for Biden Trump is just gonna not tweet out lies and misinformation. That is literally all Trump has done since like 2014 ;^)

                        Plus I want Anderson Cooper to troll Trump as it happens live on the air Friday Night Primetime!

                            I think the whole lesson of the Dump Midpresidency is do not change norms when dealing with an outlier. Do whatever you would do if it was some other guy. I suspect networks would be very shy after 2000 and after the polling being off. I'm fine with it if they hold off until, at least, the number of remaining ballots falls below the margin.
