What Fresh Hell is This? Tuesday’s Open Thread

It’s Tuesday.

We’ve enter What Fresh Hell is This Day 14.

For What Fresh Hell is This Day 14, The Impeached Ass has not tweeted, it’s currently 11:31 a.m. D.C., time, and it’s possible I’ve jinxed it.

On Thursday he finished by tweeting 3 times and retweeting 1 time.

4:23 p.m. D.C., time.

There was a huge public education campaign to prevent these kind of errors this year–Sam Levine. 

From the linked article shared by Sam Levine.

With absentee ballots flooding election offices nationwide, the officials processing them are tentatively reporting some surprising news: The share of ballots being rejected because of flawed signatures and other errors appears lower — sometimes much lower — than in the past.

Should that trend hold, it could prove significant in an election in which the bulk of absentee voters has been Democratic, and Republicans have fought furiously, in court and on the stump, to discard mail ballots as fraudulent.

[for example].

In Fulton County, Ga., home to Atlanta, just 278 of the first 60,000-odd ballots processed had been held back. In Minneapolis, Hennepin County officials last week had rejected only 2,080 of 325,000 ballots — and sent replacement ballots to all of those voters. In Burlington, Iowa, the number of rejected ballots on Monday was 28 of 12,310. And of 474,000 absentee ballots received in Kentucky, barely 1,300 rejects remain uncorrected by voters, compared to more than 15,000 during the state’s presidential primary in June.

The number of rejections could fall further. In those jurisdictions and many others, voters are notified of errors on ballots and can correct their mistakes, or vote in person instead.

Election officials also say many voters appear more motivated to cast ballots this year, and more attentive to instructions on mail voting that have flooded newspapers, television and the internet. Changes in the design of ballots also have been a factor: On the advice of experts, for example, election officials in Rochester Hills, Mich., made the spot on ballots where voters are supposed to enter contact information easier to find. More are now doing that, making it easier to notify voters of problems with their ballots.

Adam Paul Laxalt says he’s a Trump campaign chair from Nevada. He shared this tweet 43 minutes before LameDuckAsshole did.

Megan Messerly works for the Nevada Independent, she was live tweeting the Clark County Commission election certification hearing on Tuesday.

If we click on Megan Messerly’s tweet her whole thread appears, the tweet that follows the one amplified by Laxalt, and One-termer says:

She responded to One-Termer.

Once again, the One-Termer 60-however many days he has left, showed his 80 million plus followers that the system in place worked. It did not uncover fraud, it found that one local race was too close, it was best to rerun that race for the integrity of the election.

Local reporter Nicole Valdes explained on November 12th, 2020.

The article posted by Breitbart was based on a YouTube video posted by Ward on Tuesday. She explains that Arizona is still in play and not to believe the fake news that says otherwise.

In all eyes on PA news:

Rudy “@ Four Seasons Landscaping” Giuliani has asked permission to join the case.

For giggles:

UPDATE:

It’s tweeted.

1. Announces that he reversed a decision that had already been announced reversed an hour and thirty-four minutes before his announcement.

Fox News explained that on Monday the cemetery announced that “they were canceling the event that had been scheduled for Dec. 19 at Arlington National Cemetery and the Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home Cemetery due to coronavirus concerns.”

In a press release, Arlington National Cemetery said that it had conducted a “thorough analysis” of how to safely conduct the event before ultimately deciding to cancel. 
“We did not make this decision lightly. Despite the controls developed to disperse potential crowds in time and space, and required personal safety protocols, we determined that hosting any event of this scale risked compromising our ability to accomplish our core mission of laying veterans and their eligible family members to rest,” Office of Army National Cemeteries and Arlington National Cemetery Executive Director Karen Durham-Aguilera said in a statement.

Wreaths Across America responded to the decision on Monday.

They have not as this time, responded to the news of the reversal.


This post might be updated.

This is an Open Thread.

Including weekends this seems like a long time to go…

This feels like it’s even longer away…

It has now been *13 hours since the Impeached Lame-Duck One-Termer has tweeted. I believe the longest he’s ever gone without tweets is 18 hours. Might be 16 hours. If I recall correctly he was out of the country at the time.

*It was 16 hours without a tweet.*
