Another thing I'm glad I missed: the latest round of strained justifications of the Electoral College from righties, who would swing around & take the opposite position in a HEARTBEAT if it advantaged them. (See: their positions on everything else.)
Want some proof? @mattyglesias linked to this earlier, but it's really worth reading about what the GOP planned if Bush had won the popular vote but lost the EC in 2000: https://www.nydailynews.com/archives/news/bush-set-fight-electoral-college-loss-article-1.881690 …
The only unifying feature of GOP rhetoric & positions for the last several decades is tribalism -- whatever works to their advantage, prior positions & principles be damned. And yet we still have to pretend that we're having a substantive argument about the EC.
