LET'S GET UNCLE JOE BIDEN ELECTED PRESIDENT OF US AMERICA!
It's here, it's here, it's here, it's here, it's here, it's here!
Did you wake up this morning with that special feeling in your stomach, like you know that either Santa is coming today or possibly the apocalypse? Us too. But we actually feel pretty good, and are taking Wonkette's own advice to not wet the bed about it.
In Miami yesterday, Barack Obama closed out his Month Of Mocking Donald Trump Ferociously (and also campaigning for Joe Biden) by making fun of the fact that STILL, on Election Day in the year 2020, Trump is fixated on his tiny inauguration crowd size in 2017. Still!
Behold the sexiest Tabs ever!

Norman Williams hadn't voted in 52 years.
But the 75-year-old retired Atlanta resident cast his first ballot since 1968 earlier this month for Joe Biden for one simple reason: His intense desire to see President Donald Trump kicked out of office.
"It's everything about him. He's a narcissist, he's a liar, he's a racist, he's proven he doesn't know what he's doing," Williams said.
"I had not thought about voting for years, because I always felt my one vote wasn't going to mean nothing," he added. "But it's too important now to not do it.”

Conservatives are more willing to believe in systemic voter fraud than systemic racism.
The Trafalgar Group has consistently served as a rare source of good polling news for Donald Trump. Even when Rasmussen shows Joe Biden curb stomping Trump, Trafalgar is there for him with polls that seem to just really accurately reflect the voting preferences of the most racist members of a 1950s Alabama subdivision.
Trafalgar's chief pollster is Robert Cahaly, who the Wall Street Journal credits with correctly predicting the 2016 election's gruesome outcome. That doesn't make him Nostradamus. Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight gave Trump a 28.6 percent chance of winning the Electoral College in 2016, which is a lot unless you're someone who'd buy a used car that had a 28.6 percent chance of exploding whenever you started the ignition.
Dave Wasserman at Cook Political Report also saw warning signs for Hillary Clinton at the congressional district level in 2016. He sees the opposite trend now — Trump is underperforming his 2016 margins in district-level polling. That's a problem when he carried Pennsylvania, for instance, by less than a percentage point. If he's stumbling in Trump country, where is he going to make up the difference? The coveted Lil Wayne endorsement holds lil weight in Scranton.
Stay safe next Tuesday.
Both SER and Dok accidentally wrote about this last night, so we smashed both posts together and think it still makes sense.
Donald Trump has desperately tried to sow distrust in the results of his scheduled ass-whooping next Tuesday. Like the emotionally damaged spoiled child he is, Trump contends that the only “fair" election is one he wins, and he's convinced that any election he loses is “rigged" against him.
During the first presidential debate, when he advised white supremacists to “stand back and stand by," President Klan Robe also “urged" his droogs to "go into the polls and watch very carefully" for any suspicious activity, presumably (Black) people voting against him. This is the exact sort of voter intimidation that served as the “happy ending" of Birth of a Nation, which plays endlessly in the abandoned movie theater inside Trump's head.
Stewart Rhodes is one of far too many loons out there who are “standing by" on Election Day. Rhodes is a member of the Oath Keepers, one of those violent rightwing groups that Trump knows nothing about despite technically being president. The Oath Keepers are cops — both former and present — and military veterans who snapped after Barack Obama was elected. (They also wanted to hang John McCain for treason, so neither 2008 presidential candidate would've pleased them.)
