To hell with this, everything on here today is just making me angry, more so than usual. Going to go read until the rugby.Oh look. I was right.

The worst case scenario is the one that keeps happening. @HickeyWriter Though in this case it's really just preparing for the worst, because I honestly don't see Biden as a… @HickeyWriter It is possible that my personal philosophy of preparing for the worst and hoping for the best is an e… @HickeyWriter In my defence, Twitter chose not to show me that for some reason.

But I really think claiming Biden is going to win this is precipitous. @HickeyWriter There's so much going on with this election, I'm not prepared to call a winner. I've not been wrong i… @HickeyWriter A big poll lead can quickly turn into a massive blowout loss in the actual election, turning on just… @HickeyWriter I don't agree with that assessment. At this stage last time everyone was overwhelmingly pointing at a… @HickeyWriter I suspect Biden will win the popular vote, but with the electoral college that doesn't mean a whole l… @HickeyWriter I still think there's going to be no clear winner and months of bitter legal fighting over it, myself… @lawprofblawg I'm not sure.
