MLB Strikes Out On Colorado Move

Biden fouls out.

If we lived in a real country Joe Biden would have already been impeached and convicted for mind blowing incompetence. Ok, perhaps not a constitutional criterion for removal from office. Though, call it the Carter precedent, perhaps it should be.

His latest feat of sheer idiocy is making a great huff, after no doubt advising them to do so, out of moving the MLB (Gawd if there ever was a more boring sport than baseball it is not apparent. It makes cricket look like a demolition derby by comparison) All-Star Game out of Atlanta and to Denver because of the new Georgia voting reform law, only to discover that Colorado has similar election provisions.

What kind of staff work is that? Who couldn’t do a simple Google search to find out the right information? Who in the blazes has Biden hired to work White House staff duty? Where was the MLB public relations staff? Are they all too busy posting on DSA blogs and playing Angry Birds to do their jobs?

FNC: Major League Baseball announced that they are moving the 2021 All-Star Game out of Georgia in protest of the state’s new voting laws — and it now it is reportedly headed to Colorado, which has some rules that are similar, if not more restrictive. The Associated Press reported Tuesday that the MLB will relocate the game to Denver’s Coors Field after pulling it from Atlanta over Georgia voting laws. In response, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp addressed the situation, comparing the two states’ procedures, saying he is baffled by the decision. As it turns out, Colorado also requires voters to show identification when voting in person, and the state says that first-time mail-in voters may be required to include a copy of their identification with their ballot.

Do you think there will be fair elections in 2022?

“This is not far off from Georgia, which requires identification for in-person and absentee voting, although Georgia requires proof of identity for all absentee voting. According to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office, voters without ID can use the last four digits of their social security number, a utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or another government document with their name and address on it. Colorado relies on signature matching for absentee ballots other than those from first-time mail-in voters.”

“Georgia has 17 days of in-person early voting including two optional Sundays, Colorado has 15,” Republican governor Kemp said. “So what I’m being told, they also have a photo ID requirement. So it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.”

Biden attended the NCAA championship game in Indiana, which Kemp noted was “the birthplace for the photo ID requirement.” The hypocrisy is staggering. But it is also par for the course for a media environment that will cover up all for the greater Bolshevik good. It will continue for years.
