31 October 2020 | Collapse
Black hole metaphors might be overdone, but bear with me here: at the center of these things is a theoretical structure called a singularity. This is the point, according to cosmologists, were physical laws take on infinite values. Everything we understand and know collapses.
Thatâ€™s a nice description for what I suspect is going to happen on Election Day. For all the noise about a contested election and the Supreme Court throwing out ballots and calling the race for Imbecile 45, my unscientific sense is all of the ironies of a crooked and depraved Republican Party will begin to collapse on themselves: instead of wanting the courts to throw out ballots, theyâ€™ll change course and demand the opposite when it becomes apparent that the election isnâ€™t going their way. The GOP leader doesnâ€™t want ballots to be counted after November 3, but watch for that tune to change. Itâ€™s been four years in the making.
I donâ€™t know any of this for a fact. I fully expect any number of pathetic attempts to occur, but Iâ€™m more of the opinion that there wonâ€™t be enough *there* there, to make any serious legal challenges. It will collapse on itself into a dense point of defeat from which *none* of them will be able to escape.
