Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, May 28, 2020

A day after Kellyanne Conway doubled down on President Trump's attack on mail-in voting by likening the task of standing in line at a cupcake shop to lining up to vote at the polls, a report revealed that she indeed casted her ballot by mail in the 2018 midterm election.

Also, while understanding that voting is nothing like eating a cupcake who in the holy heck waits a hour for a cupcake?

What planet are these people from?

Conway claimed that she voted by 'absentee ballot' in the 2018 mid-term elections from her home state of New Jersey. She also made a point of reminding people NOT to confuse an 'absentee' ballot with a 'vote-by mail' ballot, implying that they were two totally different things.

Unfortunately, for Kellyanne, she's full of crap. New Jersey, along with 28 other states (and the District of Columbia) no longer has anything called an 'absentee' ballot. They are now simply a 'vote-by-mail' ballot, which ANYONE can request for whatever reason they want. This is sometimes called a 'no-excuse' absentee ballot. But what this does is make her argument moot, since there's only one type of non-in-person ballot no matter what your reason for wanting to use it. So while she might want people to think there's a difference between 'absentee' ballots and 'vote-by-mail' ballots, and she may like to claim that she votes using ONLY an 'absentee' ballot, in reality she's been 'voting-by-mail' all along.

Basically, if they were honest, Trump and Co. would admit they only want Republicans to be able to vote by mail. Everyone else should have to wait on long, long lines.

An hour? People waited for 8 hours in Florida heat to vote.

The right bitched about the poll workers handing out water to the people waiting.

They don't want minorities to vote. Period. They gave up on trying to win the minority vote, so now they are working tireless to strip minorities of their constitutional rights to vote through gerrymandering, purges, suppression and threats.

The GOP is scum.

When people vote, Republicans lose.

This is the guiding principle behind every single move that every single Republican politician and judge makes related to voting.
