Evan McMullin, who hoped to throw the election into the House of Representatives to prevent Mr. Trump's election, is begging the GOP to save the country. They aren't listening. At all. Remember: they're all in on this. Remember that, when this is over.

Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress are working towards prohibiting states from setting up their own low-income pensions, because why the hell would they pass up an opportunity to be evil dickbags, right?

And Republicans in Oregon are trying to get started there with voter suppression - it's a lot harder, with mail-in balloting, so they're going to try to force everyone to be deregistered and re-registered in two years. It's a citizen initiative. Oregonians might want to do something about that.
