MSNBC Broadcasts Florida Race Results…24 Hours EARLY

Floridians have raised an eyebrow at MSNBC before, but this is absurd!

MSNBC

American elections are sacred, as they should be, as they help put a hand of the people on the rudder of our nation.

So, it is with the utmost sincerity that we must protect these institutions of liberty, for without a chance to express ourselves as equals, can we even call ourselves American anymore?

This means, in essence, that any affront on our right to be heard by ballot should be, by definition, unconstitutional, and morally treasonous.  With the advent of high digital technology in the latter half of the 20th century, protecting ourselves from such treachery has become a difficult job, and as such has created a healthy bit of paranoia when it comes to “rigging”.

Of course, the abhorrent behavior of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential election didn’t help the cause either.

So, even the simplest of “goofs” can raise an eyebrow or two, especially in an election of such extreme importance.

In yet another misfire at the most steadily misfiring of networks, MSNBC accidentally aired the results of Florida’s gubernatorial a race, as Deadline put it, “a wee bit too early” — the night before the election.

The big winner: You guessed it, the Democrat on the ticket, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who managed to secure a victory. With 99% of the vote tallied, MSNBC imagined that Gillum had secured 49.4% of the vote over Republican Ron DeSantis’s 48.8%.

The error was captured forever by the internet:

The defense of the maneuver was predictably lackluster.

The gaff left a humiliated “All In” host Chris Hayes offering his audience a “quick clarification.”

“Just want to say,” he said, “earlier this hour, we showed a graphic of the Florida gubernatorial race. May have caught your eye because our system had inadvertently populated some test numbers. Obviously, we do not yet have any vote totals here, the night before the election. That was a misfire. Don’t worry. I was pretty confused when I saw it up there, to see it myself.”

In other words, not “Fake News,” just “Incompetent News.”

We’ll just have to wait an see how eerily close these “test numbers” were at the end of the night tonight.

Andrew Cuomo Should Win The Political Darwin Award

Heck, he should probably get a lifetime achievement Darwin Award based on his handling of the CoronaVirus pandemic.

If there is ever a Darwin Award for politicians New York Governor Andrew Cuomo just earned himself the award—heck, he should probably get a lifetime achievement Darwin Award based on his handling of the CoronaVirus pandemic. The Darwin Awards salute the improvement of the human gene pool by honoring those who achieve the pinnacle of stupidity by accidentally and spectacularly killing themselves most spectacularly. Like the guy who approached the open drawbridge in Louisiana, “lifted up the arm of the safety gate, then get back in while the driver backed up a bit and accelerated hard over the dra-bridge edge.” The car did not make it. The driver and passenger drowned as the car sank into the bayou. They received the award because “You cannot live long if the road’s IQ is higher than your own. In this IQ test, our Double Darwin winners failed; indeed, they set a new low. Because these Texas Men–unlike the Blues Brothers–lacked “Cop Tires. Cop Engine. Cop Suspension, and a Mission From God.” A political version of the Darwin Awards would not involve the death of the winner but would be given to the politician who says the most imbecilic tone-deaf statement at the worst possible time. Based on his latest statements, New York’s ‘Luv Guv” Andrew Cuomo should receive a lifetime achievement Darwin Award. Cuomo has been in trouble thanks to sexual harassment charges and, most importantly, his COVID-19 executive order that lead to the death of thousands of senior citizens earning him the Twitter hashtag #CuomoKilledGrandma. When concerns regarding the nursing home deaths resulting from his order, the Luv Guv made some awful tone-deaf statements, perhaps the worst of which happened in May 2020. A reporter asked, “What would you say to families who have suffered losses inside nursing homes? His callous…

VIDEO: Conservative Icon Tears Through 30 Pushups to Teach Reporter a Lesson

He’s still got it!

There has been no shortage of concerns over the health of our elected officials as of late, and with good reason.  We keep electing septuagenarians who aren’t exactly the perfect specimen of physical or mental health. And so, far too often, we hear these elder statesmen ragging on one another’s condition.  During the 2016 election, we had to watch the painful and frankly scary behavior of Hillary Clinton, who was in continual denial about whatever affliction she was dealing with at the time.  In 2020, it was Donald Trump and Joe Biden arguing back and forth over their stamina and physical aptitude.  At one point, Biden even suggested that he would drop and give us several pushups in the middle of a debate if Trump would be willing to match him. That potentially hilarious incident never occurred, (maybe thankfully, in order to save our nation from that embarrassment), but these feats of strength remain out there, in the ether, just waiting for some poor sap to take the bait. A reporter in Texas was almost that sap this week. Texas Republican Party Chairman Allen West, a 60-year-old former Army lieutenant colonel, did 30 pushups at a press conference outside the state capitol on Wednesday. The pushups occurred near the end of the event, which was to discuss the state’s new abortion and anti-transgender bills. West initially challenged a CBS Austin reporter who showed up late to the event to do 30 pushups in order to make up for his tardiness. After the journalist declined, West did the pushups himself. The crowd counted along and then cheered after he completed them in roughly 22 seconds. Video of the incident shows that West has still got it. https://twitter.com/janestreet/status/1390055667612979204?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1390055667612979204%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newsweek.com%2Ftexas-gop-chair-lt-col-allen-west-challenges-reporter-press-conference-do-30-pushups-1589432 West has long been an icon in the conservative world, and there is little doubt that this…
