    I just got the information off of CBS. Wisconson threw out the court case to over turn election results for Trump.
    Wisconson is not turning red.

    Meanwhile Trump rakes in the money from suckers and diverts it to a "PAC" as the fine print says he can.

    And convinces people there is a problem, or gets them to think it's OK to treat the president like a little child who's hamd is held while a parent shows there's nothing hiding in the closet or under the bed, no reason to be afraid of the dark.

    Truly, I used to not know when the EC meets. It's basically a formal ritual required by the Constitution. But this election, damn. I only know it's just under a fortnight because of these shenanigans. It's ankther show of Trump, smoke and mirrors, he knows he's lost but it pays to keep fighting because people believe his nonsense despite the fact that what Wisconsin did is just a dmaller piece of a larger trend.

    It may be the shenanigans you know about are just to distract people from the shenanigans you don't know about.

    The art of the deal is the art of distraction. Maybe, IDK.

    Hard for me not to suspect some ulterior motive.

    Its not a ritual. The EC actually selects the president. Anyways the EC vote is December 14 if I remember correctly.

    It's a ritual that makes official what we already know. It's not like they have a free election like we do. They are sent to vote based on the popular vote winner in their state. It's a ritual formality.

    Because the case might not make it to the Supreme Court in time, they asked the Supreme Court to hear it now. The Supreme Court ruled that the case had to go through the Circuit Court before they would hear it. So the Supreme Court hasn't actually ruled on the case itself yet.
