Morning Free Association: Deadlocked

Embed from Getty Images

Somehow, election officials in Monrovia have been unable to count the solitary ballot. They seems to be afraid to open the envelope that it came in. Bodie Coyle’s legal team has insisted that this ballot arrived after the election day and cannot and should not be counted. He still asserts his victory despite receiving no votes.

Bodie Coyle is, in fact, losing. Demanding the vote counting be stopped in an area where the one vote could be for him is a dumb strategy. He says that he and his team of pawyers will appeal to the Pupreme Court to stop the counting in Monrovia.

Otherwise, in the totally real world, Winnie Carlo and Otto McAvoy are still tied at one vote a piece. Otto the bus driver, a write-in vote, was disqualified when it was revealed that he is not only not a dog but he is also not owned by a Bruins player. A write-in for Fenway Krug was thrown out after it was revealed that she is a dog owned by a former Bruins player, not a current one. When she was still eligible, Fenway’s primary run ended in scandal involving a spa day. At first, it seemed the hullabaloo seemed to be about nude photos. However, further investigation revealed that she used campaign funds to treat herself and a friend to that beauty retreat.

Winnie Carlo was that friend and continues to claim that she had no idea of the misappropriation of Fenway’s campaign funds for their day at the resort. A probe exonerated Carlo of any impropriety.

Who will win this election? Will there be a run-off?

BREAKING:

In an apparent repeat of the 2000 election’s “Boots & Barkley riot”, a group of Bodie Coyle partisans have broken into the ballot counting room, in an attempt to disrupt the proceedings

Morning all. Will Pasta and his dog oversee the run off?

Uh oh! This could sway the Electorate, who do have the power to override the voter’s choice.

When this is all finally sorted and a winner declared there will definitely be a push to have the Dogstitution amended to ensure a smoother voting system.

Exhausted after a day of unrest in Monrovia (i didn’t take a break all day). Apparently, some local dogs feel that they should have been on the ballot. There is some confusion over being owned by a Bruin and having an owner who is a real bear.

Great, this is going to start a whole new round of motions and filings and briefs and injunctions.

Well of course the election result is going to look bad if you count the votes! Whoever heard of such a thing?!

What a situation. I hope it stays peaceful.

I’m looking forward to Saturday when you can explain to me the difference between the House of Representatives and whatever that other House is called …

That other house is the Senate. Each state has two Senators. Each states.number of representatives is determined by that states.population.

New legislation has to pass both chambers of Congress, then can be passed or vetoed by the President. A Presidential veto can be overturned by a 2/3 majority in both chambers. All the Executive Orders that Trump has signed can be overturned by the next Prez. That’s what i remember, but there’s probably someone here who knows this stuff better. i learned everything i know from Schoolhouse Rock

I wondered how it could be that different parties control each house but it makes sense now.

Yes, the power of the Senate is biased towards the smaller states so the partisan makeup of the Senate is biased towards the right since most of the smaller states are farm & ranch economies.
The House districts are population-based, so are biased towards large industrialized metro areas which have more immigrant & minority presence and are where the best higher educational institutions are clustered.
