[04:33:22] <systemd> ^ 03Top DOJ official in charge of voter fraud probe quits within hours of Barr memo
[05:27:32] <Runaway1956> Imagine that - a DOJ official who is reluctant to investigate fraud . . .
[05:39:29] <c0lo> Imagine that, a DOJ official who refuses to invent fraud because his boss asked him to.

[08:55:59] <FatPhil> but but but but Ken Starr has a known anti-Republican stance. Well-known for doing anything he can to protect Dems!

[10:25:00] <c0lo> "Even if the court were to take up the case and rule for Republicans, it likely would not affect the final vote in Pennsylvania, as the case only concerns mail-in ballots received after Nov. 3. State officials have indicated that late-arriving ballots are a tiny proportion of the overall vote."

[10:25:13] <systemd> ^ 03Republican state AGs ask U.S. Supreme Court to hear mail-in ballot dispute
[10:35:11] <FatPhil> to be honest, if that's the one Alito already weighed in on, I think that's fair. (Even though Alito is a deranged mofo.)
[10:36:38] <FatPhil> It might be SCOP's job to adjudicate on the interpretation of the statutes, but that interpretation should not extend to "X means 'not X'".
[10:37:51] <FatPhil> That's effectively striking a clause from the statute, that's rewriting the law. That's explicitly not their job.
[10:45:54] <c0lo> Heh, you have of those too, FatPhil? https://www.reuters.com
[10:45:55] <systemd> ^ 03Far-right Estonian cabinet minister quits after criticising Biden
[10:46:21] <FatPhil> Yeah, about 40% of our news is about Helme presently!
[10:47:29] <c0lo> I though good beer would prevent brain damage. Maybe those two don't have enough.
[10:48:27] <FatPhil> That pair are the EKRE party, they probably drink the blood if immigrants.
[10:50:14] <FatPhil> But even though I'm left-leaning, I'm glad we have a right-wing party that's able to represent our right wing population. As long as everyone's got a viable party to vote for (And we have PR, so most parties are viable), then democracy can be done.
[10:50:46] <FatPhil> I'm not offended by Helme's remarks. I'd rather politicians spoke their minds.
[11:05:54] <FatPhil> AH, I'm not offended by his remarks on Biden. He gave a longer interview, during which he said some very unprofessional things.
[11:06:33] <c0lo> Yeah, it's good to have someone you can say Fuck off to from time to time.
[11:08:26] <FatPhil> Biden is clearly pure old-fashioned swamp, all of the lionisation that's happening is retarded.
[11:15:07] <c0lo> We'll see how he'll behave, I guess. If he doesn't manage to focus on governing and stays swampy, the US people are FUBARed.
[11:18:03] <FatPhil> I think his focus will be on making sure someone changes his Depends regularly, mostly.
[11:20:43] <c0lo> I don't see a degradation in his intellectual functions.
[11:21:39] <c0lo> I reckon many will be surprised how non-sleepy Joe can prove to be.

[11:50:22] <systemd> ^ 03Breakingviews - Biden win sets scene for storm before the calm
[12:44:14] <FatPhil> I think he still has lucid moments, but it's clear some form of dementia has taken hold.
[12:56:27] <Bytram> FatPhil: FWIW, as I've gotten older, my old skill of near instant and total recall of any given thing has faded. There are pauses, as if I hit a memory lookup error in cache and have to wait for things to be paged in from a slow, spinny hard disk. Generally get there within a few moments or seconds, but it can be disturbing.
[12:57:28] <Bytram> I'm still able to reason clearly (logic gates are as good or even better than ever, but the data access is not keeping up.
[13:08:25] <FatPhil> I've always had terrible recall, but in the last 5 years I've noticed it get worse. Not expecting that to improve.
[13:14:28] <Bytram> I liked to characterize it like this: I have a photographic memory... but grainy film. As I get older, it seems the grains are getting larger. :/
[14:00:33] <janrinok> who am I, why am I here...
[14:01:23] <janrinok> the very fact that you can still think in terms of traditional photographic film puts you in a certain age bracket ;)
[14:37:05] <FatPhil> I've got you beat - I was just exlaining what "stereotypes" are on that thread!
[14:37:23] <FatPhil> they're older than film - that's printing terminology!
[14:43:58] <c0lo> Good, an archetypal pissing contest on who is more senile. I'm out.
[14:47:01] <FatPhil> Who will win that argument?
[14:47:03] <FatPhil> Depends...
[15:24:33] <janrinok> daguerreotypes?
[15:25:52] <janrinok> ... not that I've used them myself, of course
[16:43:27] <pinchy> WE DID IT JOE *cackle*
[16:48:50] <c0lo> so much fresher than Biden, almost like a spring onion https://s3.reutersmedia.net
[19:31:14] <FatPhil> janrinok: Don't make me explain that joke!
[19:32:53] <FatPhil> A local museum did have some daguerreotypes which were pretty cool, but stereotypes predate even those.
[19:34:29] <FatPhil> Wow - I've only just realised that the "-types" was lifted from printing terminology.
[19:34:44] <FatPhil> you learn something new every day, thanks janrinok!
[19:51:31] <chromas> typotypes
[19:59:05] <FatPhil> But you know what came before *those*, don't you?
[20:01:16] <FatPhil> you've got 15 minutes to work that out whilst I go to a local fancy restaurant, and beg for scraps at the back door like the peasant that I am.
[20:07:31] <chromas> Before stereotypes were monotypes
[20:08:11] <chromas> Before typotypes was calligratypes
[20:14:53] <FatPhil> prototypotypes
[20:14:59] <FatPhil> son, I am disappoint

[23:20:40] <Runaway1956> House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy claimed that Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi no longer has the votes required to remain in her position on Tuesday.
[23:34:10] <FatPhil> Isn't she dead yet?
