DO WHAT THE BUTTONS SAY


Recounts happened Tuesday in the elections for the Virginia House of Delegates! Remember how nobody ever thought the Democrats could retake control of that body, everything was (and is) so gerrymandered to fuck, but then all of a sudden WHOA HOLY SHIT DEMOCRATIC WAVE, TRANSGENDER LADY STOLE SEAT OF BIGGEST TRANSPHOBIC ASSHOLE IN THE WHOLE STATE AND A MILLION OTHER DEMOCRATS WON ALSO TOO? Because of said gerrymandering, control of the body hung in the balance, even though Democrats beat Republicans by 10 points overall among votes cast in those elections. This is fucked up, and it's also how things are in the United States House of Representatives and in a bunch of other states.

That alone is a good enough reason for Democrats to NEVER MISS AN ELECTION AGAIN, so we can be the ones holding the pen next time it's time to draw lines. (And we will draw them FAIRLY and the GOP will bitch and moan because FAIRLY has a WELL-KNOWN LIBERAL BIAS.)

Another real good reason to never miss an election again is that it appears Republicans have lost their majority in the Virginia House of Delegates by ONE VOTE after today's recounts:

A Republican seat flipped Democratic in a wild recount Tuesday - with the Democrat winning by a single vote - creating a rare 50-50 tie between the parties in the House of Delegates and refashioning the political landscape in Richmond.

Democrat Shelly Simonds emerged from the recount as the apparent winner in the 94th District of the House of Delegates, seizing the seat from Republican incumbent David Yancey. A three-judge panel still must certify the results, an event scheduled for Wednesday.

Of the 23,866 votes cast in the Newport News district on Election Day, Yancey held a tenuous lead of just 10 votes going into Tuesday’s recount. [...]

The final tally: 11,608 for Simonds to 11,607 for Yancey.

ONE VOTE, ASSHOLES.

Oh, is your armpit planning to itch on election day?

ONE VOTE, ASSHOLES.

Oh, are you gonna get stuck in the drive-thru getting a Big Mac to put directly inside your bottom and forget to make it to the polls?

ONE VOTE, ASSHOLES.

Oh, but were you thinking the Democrat running for "Thing" isn't perfect according to your standards, so it doesn't really matter if some GOP sexual predator wins "Thing," because they are all the same anyway?

ONE VOTE, JILL STEIN.

Oh, but were you busy reading the Wonkette open thread and drinking booze and putting cat .gifs in the comments section?

That's fine, it's not election day. BUT WHEN IT IS, WE SWEAR TO GOD.

Anyway, that means open thread, goodbye.

What's up fuckers? Were you waiting for me to come back from Mexico and write words at ya? Well, you know I don't write words at ya anymore, because of how I hate you, each, individually, but more importantly Trump has knocked all the words right out of my silly little lady brain.

BONESAW WEEK WILL NEVER END! It's like Infrastructure Week, only stuff actually happens. And the stuff is all horrible! This morning, Saudi authorities indicted 11 suspects in the October killing of Jamal Khashoggi, announcing their intention to execute five of them. Despite copious evidence that the killing in the Turkish consulate was ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, lackeys are going to take the fall -- with their heads. And the US Treasury Department dutifully responded by imposing sanctions on 17 Saudis "involved in the abhorrent killing" of a legal US resident who was in the process of applying for citizenship. So, we're good now, yes? We can go back to selling them murder machines to kill Yemeni civilians?

And then SHIT GOT WEIRD.

NBC reports that the Trump administration is so desperate to resume normal relations with Jared Kushner's BFF MBS that they're trying to trade 77-year-old cleric Fetullah Gülen -- a lawful resident of Pennsylvania for 20 years -- to the Turkish government in exchange for them dropping the inquiry into the Khashoggi murder.
