    Stupid Goopers can't even ratfuk an election the right way! I agree there was a lot of Scoobyism going on over this one ("Republicans find a way to win every time") but I'm curious if older voters turned out. It seems the people who would be least likely to 1) brave the virus by voting in person or 2) change the way they've been voting all their lives by requesting and mailing in a ballot are Old People. These are the backbone of GOP support, so not 100% sure what they were thinking when they insisted the election go forward as planned.
    Who voted absentee was a huge factor. Like many young people in rural WI, my kids all went away to college and have continued to live in other states. They voted absentee in every election as long as they identified themselves as WI residents. Typical, from what I see with my friends' kids. In small rural towns, voting is often in small, cramped venues, and the volunteer help is largely old retired people. It is ordinarily a pleasure to vote in those circumstances, but this time it was seen by seniors as a serious safety risk. Too many people in a confined space and not enough skilled people manning the show. Old people stayed away unless they were ****ed off, and young people voted absentee.

    Plus, people who could read were offended by Kelly's mailings, many of which were apparently not prepared by his campaign. The Knucks just pushed their knuckness too far.

        I love that it replaces Lee-Jackson Day, which not only existed, but apparently was still celebrated well into the 2000s.

            I'm well-aware of that. Doesn't make the idea of a Lee-Jackson Day any less ludicrious.

              Having grown up in VA, I'll do ya one better. It used to be Lee-Jackson-King Day, i.e. MLK. (In fact it's still kind of odd to me that it isn't, having gotten used to ti.) Stigginit!

                        Oh you don't need to tell me that. We (well, my parents, as I was 11 at the time) were part of the group that fought the **** out of that.

He said he knows they know they had the numbers next year to pass this type of law and override his veto then, but decided to do it now anyways. I thought he deftly put the onus back on Republicans for their blatant power grab via voter suppression. That said, his words will mainly fall on deaf ears. However, our Sec of State has openly indicated a willingness to use expanded mail-in voting if the virus persists into election season. Time for the wait-and-see game.
