First of all, Trump and the RNC literally did not run a platform this year.

Second of all, Biden's platform is explicitly no more malarky.

Trump has honestly pulled birtherism three times. First on Obama, then on Ted Cruz, then on Kamala Harris.

His go to attack is "you are a foreigner and can't run for president."

Ted Cruz didn't show his birth certificate because it would prove he's the Zodiac Killer

I really don't want my home state to riot, but they would probably do that if Tlaib was elected.

Just because it’s been called doesn’t necessarily mean we’re off the wild ride. But we really need to remain calm, clear-headed, and civil as much as possible. And for that, here is Jon Townsend reading Rip Van Winkle by a crackling fire and outside a log cabin. Which is probably where a lot of people want to be right now.

Remember to keep caring for your mental health, be kind to each other, and take care of the people around you, whether your neighbors are Dem, Rep, or Purple Polka-Dot Giraffes. Regardless of whoever wins everything, the unity of this country ultimately comes down to us, even after Election Day is over.


Ty again lumi. Everyone keep calm and love each other.

We try that after each election, there's always something big that comes though. In this case, it's Covid's record-breaking autumn.

Also just pointing out that this is the 7/8 election since 1992 where the Democrats have won the popular vote.

That should worry the Right, even with the electoral college
