Pennsylvania is revealing Republicans to be nothing but opportunistic, seditious liars

So we’re knee deep in potential recount territory in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. On one side we have a TV huckster named Mehmet Oz; on the other, a former hedge fund CEO named Dave McCormick. It seems that Republican voters despised both of these clowns about equally (even in spite of Trump’s endorsement of Oz, a fellow erstwhile Hollywood It-Boy) so much that both of them bled support to a right-wing, apparent bigot named Kathy Barnette. And as a result, the winner of the Republican primary for U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania remains unresolved, with both Oz and McCormick hoping that mail-in ballots provide them their coveted margin of victory.

All of this somehow brings to mind the 2020 presidential campaign, one that curiously involved the same type of scanned ballots and the same mail-in forms, delivered by the same U.S. Postal Service or dropped in the same ballot boxes as those votes Oz and McCormick are so fixated on right now. They’re probably even being tabulated by many of the very same people, in many of the very same places.

But unlike 2020 we’re not hearing a peep (at least not yet) about “election fraud.” We’re not seeing Republican thugs like Corey Lewandowski and Pam Bondi boldly marching to Philadelphia to try and stop the vote count. We haven’t seen lawsuit after frivolous lawsuit wasting Pennsylvania’s judicial resources on bogus claims trying to invalidate those mail-in votes. Why aren’t we seeing these things? Oh yes, because this is a Republican........
