SPOILER ALERT: Joe Biden Won the Election

UPDATE: As CNN reports, it just…might…really…be finally over:

The General Services Administration has informed President-elect Joe Biden that the Trump administration is ready to begin the formal transition process, according to a letter from Administrator Emily Murphy sent Monday afternoon and obtained by CNN.

The letter is the first step the administration has taken to acknowledge President Donald Trump’s defeat, more than two weeks after Biden was declared the winner in the election.

This may be as close as Donald Trump is going to get to conceding the 2020 election, but we’ll take anything that brings an end to this madness.


Yeah, it’s still true

As The New York Times reports, another effort by President Trump to get the 2020 election results overturned in his favor has failed. Michigan, you are excused:

Michigan’s statewide electoral board approved its presidential vote tally on Monday, resisting pressure from President Trump to delay the process and paving the way for President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. to receive the state’s 16 electoral votes.

The Michigan vote was one of the biggest setbacks yet for Mr. Trump, who had directly intervened in the state’s electoral process to voice support for Republican officials who had made false claims about the integrity of the vote, and invited Michigan G.O.P. legislative leaders to the White House on Friday. Those leaders said afterward that they would allow the normal certification process to play out.

After reviewing the State Bureau of Elections’ report, which showed Mr. Biden winning the state by 154,000 votes over Mr. Trump, the Michigan board, made up of two Democrats and two Republicans, voted 3 to 0 with one abstention to certify the results. Norm Shinkle, one of the Republican members of the board, abstained.

Norm Shinkle, thy name shall forever be entwined with the definition of courage. As in, “Unlike Norm Shinkle, the protagonist displayed great bravery.”

Anyway, Democrat Joe Biden is the President-elect, and that’s not going to change — no matter how many times they recount the ballots in Georgia.

    I saw my first “Impeach Biden” sign in the back window of a pickup truck in Wray today. Brace yourselves for ginormous amounts of dumbfuckery from the 102nd meridian (Jefferson Territory for you Colorado history buffs)

    And Murphy has now given the green light to the transition.

      That’s because Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) invited Ms. Murphy to come and explain herself to the Oversight Committee this afternoon. She didn’t show; instead, she decided to sign off on the paperwork before she got into even hotter water. You don’t mess with Rep. Porter.

    I'd expect Impeach Obama.

      Oh, we’ve got bigger problems than “O’Bummer” right now (hint: it’s cow farts) This weeks guest editorial in The Wray Gazette is focused on Governor Polis’ (apparent) attempt to destroy agriculture by serving Impossible Burgers at a recent Dept of Ag meeting and directing staff to understand how Colorado  farmers could participate in (and benefit from) these new plant-based protein markets that happen to be growing annually by double-digits. 

      Missing from the editorial was any comment from the Sonnenburg Institute
