My fellow liberals have made much of a Republican lawyer arguing, before our Supreme Court, that Republicans need certain Arizona vote suppression laws to correct a "competitive disadvantage" with Democrats, but I suspect the right-wing Justices were trying to elicit precisely that argument, so they could claim it's really "not about racism" and wash their hands of laws that just-so-happen to injure a political party. I'd lay money that this will be Justice Barrett's first big majority opinion.
Lest we forget, ProPublica reminds us that Georgia election workers faced a crapload of threats from wrath-addled morons this past year, but law enforcement has made very few arrests. ProPublica also reminds us that too many rumors of "election fraud" get started by people who don't know what they're looking at -- and I suspect the Trump campaign sought out election observers who wouldn't know what they were looking at, because they knew it would create more drama. What else can losers do, after all, but create drama?
Remember how I said the "arguments" against the Equality Act were all hysterical hypotheticals? Sadly, our "liberal" media also seems to prefer hysterical hypotheticals in their reporting, such as it is, on the Equality Act, to the point where right-wingers whining about the unlikeliest locker-room scenarios get a lot of ink and the struggles of gay and transgender folks get hardly any. Why, you would never know the legislation affects them! And one more time: do you have a "religious" right to refuse someone a loan or housing because they're gay? No, you do not.
When I see Fox News spend an entire day whining about "Dr. Seuss being cancelled," I'm reminded that, again, right-wingers create drama because they can't win arguments on the merits. I mean, Dr. Seuss's estate decided to stop putting out the offending books without any mandates or boycotts! You'd think small-government conservatives would applaud! It's the market at work! Also, too, why does a putatively objective news organization adopt Donald Trump's tropes? They say "cancel culture" not just like anyone else outside of the right-wing whinesphere is saying it, but like they thought of it, not him!
You could make too much of eight Democratic Senators opposing Sen. Sanders's effort to reattach the $15/hour minimum wage to the COVID relief bill -- exactly one of them is up for re-election in 2022 (Maggie Hassan's going to have a harder race than she thinks, though!), and they can all describe their opposition as an adherence to Senate procedure or rocking the boat during a pandemic, though those excuses sure do have expiration dates, and they ain't far off. You know what would be the best thing for them to do politically? Pass the $15/hour minimum wage! Ultimately it's up to us to make it impossible for them to do otherwise.
Finally, in a truly breathtaking turn of events, Donald Trump calls Karl Rove a "RINO," or "Republican In Name Only," and demands Fox News fire him. Never mind that the same people who whine about "cancel culture" want Fox News to literally cancel Karl Rove -- I'm old enough to remember when Karl Rove turned the Republican Party into a bullying, fact-hating party, and now he's not good enough for the guy who took bullying and fact-hating to another level! If I were more (less?) spiritually-advanced, I guess I'd find that funny.
