Paul Ryan is going to steal the election.

I've been telling you guys all year that this was the plan: Republicans are going to toss the election into Congress and then not vote to choose a successor or certify the results. Paul Ryan becomes Acting President by default.

* That's why the GOP stuck with the Clinton email scandal, because the statute they accused her of violating says an offender is disqualified from holding public office;

* That's why the GOP rolled over for Trump, even though they were privately warned long ago that he was a shill for the Russians;

* That's why Mitch McConnell demanded that the evidence against Trump be withheld before the election.

They were planning to steal the election from BOTH candidates. And I fuckin' told all of you so all year:




Here's the problem: this is an orchestrated coup and if Republicans pull it off, there will never be another fair election. They know that their time is at an end, and the demographics spell the end for them, and they're not going quietly into the night.

I don't know what to do about it, but I figure that knowing that they're gonna try it is better than not knowing at all. Good luck to all of us.
