But now that Obama 2.0 has been sworn in, it's all stopped? Where my whiners at? Why haven't you been complaining about the EC lately?

I'll tell you why... it's because you hate it when it works against you, you love it when it gives you what you want. You can't keep a consistent opinion about it (and lots more things) and just want anything that gives you what you want and only what you want. When it fails, it's horrible and evil.

Kinda like that Congressional Nuclear Option. It was great when you democrat politicians came up with it and then absolutely horrible when Republicans used it.

Kinda like that filibuster. Absolutely smashing when it's that communist Bernie up there screeching about "muh free stuff" but it's straight-up demonic when Republicans use it.

Kind of like the Supreme Court right now. All the hubbub about having more justices. That would be great if it weren't your tear-laden way of trying to steal control again since SCOTUS positions are for life. And you can't handle that. If democrats had mentioned it any other time, I would have agreed that it made sense but this is nothing but a foot-stomping tantrum because Orange Man Bad appointed a few of them and despite how not a single one of them has acted in any way corrupt or biased, it just can't be left alone.

And then you have the nerve to complain about how Republicans won't debate with you? How they won't talk with you? How they won't work with you? Why ever on earth should they? You're two-faced and hypocritical and can't be trusted.

Thank you for coming to me Ted Rant™.

I mean, I don't think he's saying anything objectively wrong except for implying that Trump won the popular vote, and that Republicans aren't hypocritical and self-contradicting as well. People who get this deep into partisan politics are completely blind to the wrongdoings of their own party, but they're always on point when it comes to the wrongdoings of the other party.

implying that Trump won the popular vote

I did not.

Republicans aren't hypocritical and self-contradicting

Not saying that either. I give both party voters and politicians grief for their stupidity. This is a rant against the voters who whined about the EC and have stopped now that Biden is in office.

I rail against stupidity no matter where I find it.

I don't watch political anything. I don't watch TV, I'm too busy. This is literally observation of voters on both sides of the fence. If you're offended, that's all on you.

My only real criticism of the electoral college is that many states have "winner take all" laws governing their electors, if we want a true distribution representing the voters the electoral votes would split in every state based on % of votes received per candidate like they do in Maine and a few other states. With that system majority still wins the most electoral votes but the minority still gets represented.
