No matter how you vote...

take a picture (preferably time-stamped) of your signed ballot before it leaves your hands. Spread the word. There is no better protection against ballot tampering than this going viral.

Who would have thunk...

...that the most compelling Trump giving a keynote speech at the Trump convention would turn out to be a has-been stripper trophy wife with a heavy foreign accent and the diction, facial expressions and all the charm of a beta-tested robot prototype?

Then again, we all knew it wouldn't be Eric.

Kamala was an obvious choice. She checked all the right boxes. Still, I can't get over a feeling of

mild disappointment. I am disappointed in a good way: I always thought of Kamala as someone who doesn't play second fiddle to anyone. Which is probably the only box she didn't check as a VP pick.

I always thought of her being more suited to be a Supreme Court Justice. Well, maybe it is still in her future!

Biden increases Texas staff and resources in bid to win Lone Star State

Source: CBS News

On Monday the Biden campaign announced a slate of staff hires aimed at flipping the historically conservative Lone Star State, last won by a Democratic presidential candidate in 1976 by Jimmy Carter.

The Biden campaign insists its push for the state's 38 Electoral College votes is real.

"We are quite serious about putting [Texas] in play," Jenn Ridder, the campaign's national states director, told CBS News. "Increasingly we are seeing polls that show that there is real opportunity there for us."

The CBS News Battleground Tracker in mid-July showed Biden just one point behind President Trump.

Six Texas Democratic operatives have already been hired, led by state director Rebecca Acuņa, who was raised in Laredo and has worked in various roles in state and congressional politics.

President Trump's handling of the pandemic has brought about the focus on the state, according to a Biden campaign official, and that message was broadcast briefly last month via a six-figure ad buy on Texas television.

"Joe Biden is also going to win Texas in the general election for three reasons," Texas Congressman Filemon Vela, an early Biden endorser, told CBS News, "First, Donald Trump and Governor Abbott have made tactical decisions in their COVID response that is now killing Texans en masse. Second, Biden will defeat Trump in the Texas suburbs. Finally, from a historical perspective, Biden will outperform past Democratic candidates in the rural counties."

I am skeptical, but maybe Joe knows something I don't.
