Hi we woke up to a world where a Mark Trail character uses they/them pronouns. (Third panel.)
uspol / election litigation
This is all unfortunately starting to remind me that I amassed my following on Twitter (account now deleted) by tweeting pseudonymous legal analysis of the Franken v Coleman election litigation.
I don't think the presidential race is within the "margin of litigation"—though with a GOP-packed SCOTUS who can say for sure—but it's depressing that 12 years later this concept has only grown more salient, not less, for any hope of non-regressive elected representation.
Seems like a big part of the appeal of anti-electoralism is the fantasy that ignoring elections lets you pretend that people who vote for harmful representation—and their political and policy preferences—just don't exist, or will stop existing once voting is abolished, or whatever. That somehow those people can just be completly ignored, because they are inconvenient.
Iowa in particular is uniquely contemptworthy
Some irl 20020 news for you (V2 will reach Proxima Centauri sometime around then...)
