To show that there is a fresh wind in Washington, perhaps because president-suspect Biden blows, the announcement has come that Gropin' Joe's proposed communication team is comprised entirely of women, which the media assures us is absolutely great, important, historic news because... um... well... vaginas!
Mind you, President Trump already has a large number of women in high level communication positions, but they don't count because they're professionals first and women second. Not so with the incoming team, who will proudly place a lower priority on being logical than gynecological. And although this means that we'll likely never know what the hell a Biden administration is thinking, we'll definitely hear a lot about how it's feeling.
Of course, the communication team shouldn't get too settled in, as we have a strong premonition that the nature of their job will be changing in the near future...
It's a good thing that we can count on this being a fair and honest election, right? Or...will it be as much of a wildly corrupt clusterfudge as the general election a few weeks ago? We've got a pretty good idea, based on this post from our own John the Econ...
My friends subscribe to the USPS's "informed delivery" service which sends you an email with pictures of the mail you can expect to find in your mailbox later in the day. They got a bit of a surprise yesterday when their informed delivery email included no fewer than three applications for absentee ballots that they did not request. And even bigger surprise arrived later when they received all of the mail described in their email except the aforementioned absentee ballot applications.
I wonder who will be voted for on those 3 ballots.
Related to that (and to our increasingly splitting headache) officials in Georgia have announced that they've already received more than 940,000 absentee ballot requests, although they weren't quite clear on whether or not they were all requested by Stacey Abrams.
