It has been three weeks since the election and while we know who won, a section of the US still hasn’t come to terms with it. The good news is that section is getting smaller and the bad news is that section is getting more entrenched and more divorced from reality. The variety of fantasy ranges from denial to paranoia [archive links].
I said last week: “The Keystone Cop Coup is making little progress in court after multiple legal challenges being effectively laughed out of court”. They have doubled down into absurdity since then with even more outlandish claims in press conferences, which contrast with the court cases that focus on procedural issues with vague hand waving at notions of fraud. While that might sound like the lawyers are being more sensible in court than they are in front of the TV camera, it is more a case of different styles of incompetence in different arenas.
