Election Confection Deflection

From MEDIAITE:

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway threw a huge pot of verbal spaghetti against the wall in trying to justify President Donald Trump’s opposition to mail-in voting, and slipped up at the end by admitting she thinks the process would benefit former Vice President Joe Biden.

On Wednesday morning, Conway gaggled with reporters[…]

She went on to say that absentee voting with a reason is “different from institutionalizing mail-in balloting and pretending, pretending that somehow that is the only safe way that people can exercise their franchise,” an assertion that has not been made in favor of the policy.

“But Kellyanne, there are five states in the country, including Utah, perhaps one of the red states in the country, that vote entirely vote by mail,” NBC News’ Peter Alexander said, and asked “So if it works there, why shouldn’t it work in other places?”

…snip…

“It depends who’s in charge,” Conway said, appearing to accuse state officials of rigging their own elections.

“So, but again, why are we presuming five months beforehand that people predominantly or exclusively are only going to want and be able to vote by mail?” Conway asked, again misstating the reason for mail-in voting. Then it got strange.

“People very proudly show up and go to the polls. They really are, I mean they wait in line for, at Georgetown Cupcake for an hour to get a cupcake. So I think they can probably wait in line to do something as consequential and critical and constitutionally significant as cast their ballot,” Conway said. Georgetown Cupcake does offer cupcakes by mail.

“And the other thing that concerns me is very simple,” Conway continued, and claimed that “The Democrats don’t like their candidate, they didn’t want Joe Biden to be their nominee, so they’re looking for any which way they can to, to find other methods by which to make him more appealing to the voters, I suppose.”

    I wouldn’t eat those cupcakes. They look like they’ve been frosted with the poop emoji.

  2. Of course they don’t like mail-in voting because it will increase turnout, and of course anything else is bullshit. Conway knows it’s bullshit, and we all know it’s bullshit, and she knows we all know it’s bullshit. Everyone is just going through the motions of pretending to debate it.

    Not even the stink of those crapcakes can distract us from Pinocchio’s nose getting longer and longer…..

    • I think what the Rethugs are doing is setting the stage so that, when there is mail-in voting everywhere, the overwhelming “voter fraud” will give them an excuse when Rethuglican election supervisors chuck thousands of valid absentee ballots. I know it’s going to happen in my county. Racist Ronnie DeSantize (I will thank you forever for that name) fired the Dem Supervisor of Elections and put a Rethug operative in her place. He also replace the Sheriff in the same way. There are a lot of old people here, and their signatures are not the same as when they signed their voter registration cards decades ago. I know my signature doesn’t match. We can have the signature updated. but most people don’t know that, and even if they do, there are so many hoops to jump through to get it changed. I just tried to request an update, and I filled out 4 pages online only to find out that they will use the signature on my drivers license. My signature doesn’t match that either. After all that, I was told I have to contact the elections office. The Rethugs will always look for new ways to cheat. I will most likely vote in person, despite any risk. Like I always say, Joe Biden could shoot me on 5th Avenue, and I’d still crawl over broken glass to vote for him.

  3. That woman can talk more double talk than a seasoned con artist. Of course repubs want to make it hard for old or debilitated folks to vote and they really believe that votes will be rigged. And, that is like the pot calling the kettle black. Twitler has be fraudulent since day one.
