The brazenness of the theft is astounding....

The theft of elections ... is a new low in American politics, and testifies to the Left’s overriding lust for power. The Democrats have never recovered their equilibrium after losing to Donald Trump in 2016, and now appear to be willing to stop at nothing -- absolutely nothing -- to neutralize Trump and regain their hegemony.
It's now conventional wisdom on the right that any post-Election Day adjustment in a vote count is vote fraud if it's favorable to Democrats, even if the late counting is a perfectly understandable consequence of the locality's voting rules. So when the historically slow vote counting in Arizona reversed a lead for Republican Senate candidate Martha McSally and led to a victory for Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, many in the wingnuttosphere cried "Fraud!," even though the outgoing Republican senator, Jeff Flake, said no fraud was taking place, and even though McSally conceded.

Late votes changed the count in the Arizona race in Democrats' favor, and also in a handful of House races. But Republicans aren't just upset about those races -- they're particularly upset about close races in Florida and Georgia. They're convinced that Democrats are stealing those races.

But if Democrats are such expert election thieves, why haven't they have stolen these races already?

The governor's race and Senate race in Florida are both very close. So is the governor's race in Georgia. The Senate race in Texas was fairly close. And hey, you know what other races were close? The presidential races in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan in 2016.

The right-wing theory of Democratic voter fraud is this: Democrats cheat in such a sophisticated way that they almost win many key races on Election Night, and then they manipulate the vote count so they seize the lead some of the time. What a skilled set of crooks Democrats are! Dems could simply cook the books on Election Day or earlier, but I guess they'd rather do part of the work then and then manipulate the vote almost successfully afterward, when everyone's paying attention. Because that's how professional election thieves roll.

This is the dumbest conspiracy theory about Democrats since the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. You remember that conspiracy: Democrats had a sexual assault accusation against Kavanaugh all teed up, but deliberately held it until after the hearings were over, presumably because they wanted it to look suspicious and desperate. Holding back on the allegation for months was all part of Democrats' sinister plan, the fiendish brilliance of which became clear when Kavanaugh was confirmed anyway.

It didn't seem possible that Democrats could top that, but letting Stacey Abrams, Andrew Gillum, and Bill Nelson fall behind and then scrounging up probably not enough fake votes for them is even cleverer, isn't it?
