Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, April 02, 2020

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers' refusal to push for a delay of his state's Tuesday primary has infuriated fellow Democrats in the state, who are now openly accusing him of failing to prevent an impending train wreck.

As the nation hurtles toward 5,000 coronavirus deaths and governors across the country take extreme steps to keep people at home, Wisconsin is forging ahead with the election despite having its own stay-at-home order. The likely outcome is that Wisconsinites will wake up on election day being told to stay put at the same time they're greenlighted to head to crowded polling sites.

Social distancing?

Not with a Democrat as governor.

I think almost all of my relatives in Wisconsin will have voted by absentee ballot. Except maybe the Republican ones.

This is truly puzzling, why not push it off a couple of weeks?

Because this Democrat governor is a sociopath who wants people to die?

I know that's absurd but I've seen more than one DR lefty direct that allegation toward Trump.

Maybe he is.

Or maybe he's just an idiot like Trump.

Or maybe it's true true unrelated and Trump really is a sociopath who doesn't care if people die. Do you have a single shred of evidence to the contrary?

Well, given how Trump is portrayed...people dying as a result of this is potentially harming not only to him but also his re-election chances. So, maybe the motivation is effed up, but no I don't think he wants people to die from this because, at the very least, deaths aren't in his own personal best interests.

LOL nice try.

A for effort.

OK. Let's apply some logic to your premise.

JPW: Trump is a sociopathic narcissist who cares only about himself and his own self-promotion.

Jeff: For the sake of clarity, does that translate to Trump wanting to be re-elected?

*this is where I make an assumption*

JPW: Yes.

Jeff: Ok. Does a higher number of deaths and other costs increase or decrease his likelihood of re-election?

JPW: But, but....but...you're a ---------!

Jeff, let JPW chase his tail. He has it all figured out, in case you haven't noticed.

Want proof? "HOW DOES TRIMP'S ---- TASTE?"

With such intelligent and eloquent dialogue, how dare you question him.

I feel shame!

PS - have you noticed that he's still actively posting but has avoided #12 like the plague?

Makes me wonder if he's actually dying from the plague.

Might explain his nasty disposition.

I'm headed to bed. I'm sure he'll be along to along poo at you and I.

I have tomorrow to think about.

Enjoy.

He's been irascible for the last 3 years. This Dos Equis Virus house arrest thing is just a convenient excuse.

If he only wants people to survive to boost his reelection then he is in fact a sociopath.

He's been irascible for the last 3 years.

Anybody with a shred of principle and dignity has been "irascible" for 3 years.

Evers should delay the election and let the Republican legislature sue him over it if they want to go that route. What is the risk of delaying the election? Biden is going to be the nominee either way so there's no risk there but there is risk that many voters will be disenfranchised and there are health risks for the poll workers and voters.

This seems like an easy call and I don't understand why everyone involved would not be supporting a delay.

Absentee ballots can be returned six days after the election? Not much chance of fraud there.

"Absentee ballots can be returned six days after the election? Not much chance of fraud there."

If you can present evidence of widespread voter fraud using absentee ballots then do so, if not then you need to stop lying about them.

The Dane County clerk has been advertising a method for applying that gets around the voter ID law. The Democrats have defeated attempts to clean up the registration roles. Now a Judge is changing the rules of the election to allow ballots to trickle in as needed for six days. The Governor was trying to steal a Supreme Court seat by scheduling it during the primary. Since Trump is unopposed it was expected Democrats would be more motivated to vote.

If the Republicans did this what would you say?

Obama judge. It gets better and better.

According to Politico, Evers tried to call a special session today to try to deal with this, and the Republican controlled legislature gaveled it close almost immediately while taking no action whatsoever. I wish a solution would've been found ages ago, but this is hardly a Governor-only problem. State republicans also had PLENTY of time to find a solution.
