Let’s see.  The networks and AP called the election Saturday morning.  The networks and AP always call the election.  All the networks devoted a lot of airtime Saturday afternoon to calling the election.  Folks across America took to the streets to celebrate and the local and national media covered the celebrations.

All the networks then covered President-Elect Joe Biden’s and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris’ victory speeches on live TV Saturday evening.  Yesterday’s newspaper headlines across the country trumpeted the Biden-Harris win.

I got news for Donald Trump and all the arsehole GOP elected officials across the country who still haven’t publicly accepted the Biden-Harris victory.  We lead in Pennsylvania by 45,000 votes, Nevada by 34,000, Arizona by 17,000 and Georgia by 10,000.  The U.S. Supreme Court is not going to overturn the results.

Game over.

This is all very silly, and the GOP elected officials know this.  If President Barack Obama had pulled this stunt if Mitt Romney had beat him, well, you get the picture. It must be a terrible and horrible feeling to believe your arse has to be owned by someone like Trump.  It’s disgusting.  Honor and duty are not qualities held by a ton of GOP elected officials these days.

It would have been nice to carry Texas, win the Texas U.S. Senate race, pick up congressional seats and Texas House seats. Instead, all we got is 1600 Pennsylvania, the biggest enchilada so to speak.  That’s the biggest prize of the 2020 election.

We still have a very good shot at the two Georgia races.

Congrats to the Lone Star State.  We are the first to reach 1 million COVID-19 infections. Nice job, Gov. Greg Abbott!
