Barbara Boxer is well known as our dumbest U.S. Senator. Barbara may have a huge deficit when it comes to IQ points but she makes up for it with opinions. These days she’s running around throwing out her opinion of the Electoral College.
“This is the only office in the land where you can get more votes and still lose the presidency. The Electoral College is an outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society, and it needs to change immediately. Every American should be guaranteed that their vote counts.”
It looks like Hillary Clinton will probably walk away with a slight edge in the popular vote. That comes from a 4 ½ million vote edge in New York and California and probably at least 3 million votes by illegal aliens.
In other words, Hillary won big in New York and the People’s Republic of California and northern Mexico and was wiped out by Trump in America. Boxer wants to fix that.
Prior to the election the Democrats were laughing because they were projecting that Trump would win the popular vote and Hillary would win the electoral college. Now that the opposite has happened they’re all in a tizzy. It’s important to remember that if Democrats didn’t have double standards they wouldn’t have standards at all.
Two points on Senator Boxer’s latest foray into stupidity, first of all Donald Trump’s campaign strategy was built on winning the Electoral College because it’s the Electoral College that decides the presidency. If the popular vote was the deciding factor obviously his strategy would’ve changed and he would’ve spent more time campaigning to expand vote margins in states where he knew he would win – which is what Hillary Clinton did in New York and California – and he would’ve spent some time in New York and California.
The second point is that, as Boxer’s statement notes, the Constitution has to be amended in order to get rid of the Electoral College. In order to amend the Constitution three quarters of the states would have to agree and both houses of Congress would have to pass the bill with super majorities.
Anybody who thinks for one second that three quarters of U.S. states are going to put the future of their citizens in the hands of the idiots who live in New York and California really need some serious time in rehab.
Barbara Boxer is leaving the Senate in January, this bill is obviously the “We’ll Never Forget How Stupid You Were Barbara“ bill. It’s a fitting epitaph to a pathetic career in the United States Senate.
Speaking of stupidity, it’s our sincere hope that the Congress sees fit to name the wall on our southern border that Donald Trump is going to build after John McCain. Hopefully they’ll put McCain’s name on the Mexican side of the wall.
