Joe Doakes from Como Park emailed…er, mid-last week:
Governor Walz is set to announce a state-wide mask order. It’s
necessary, to prevent the spread of Covid-19 virus. He hasn’t said so
yet, but he’ll be cancelling the elections soon.
Why? Isn’t it obvious? If the Covid-19 virus is so deadly that we must
wear masks at all times, even standing in line outside a store with the
breeze blowing, then surely it’s so deadly that we cannot stand in line
outside a polling place with the breeze blowing.
Unless . . . maybe voting is like rioting? Maybe the virus doesn’t
spread during voting the way it spreads during singing, for example in
church, and more like the way it doesn’t spread during shouting, for
example at protests.
Anyway, it’s too late now to switch to on-line voting or mail-in
ballots. And despite the endless tinkering with the dials to perpetuate
the terror, the DNC’s internal polling numbers show Trump doing
surprisingly well in Minnesota. Voters simply aren’t blaming Trump for
No, there’s just too much risk. We can’t take the chance of something
going disastrously wrong.
The elections are canceled.
Who needs elections when we have hundreds of thousands of fraudulent registrations to do our voting for us?
