… allow someone to accomplish his or her own downfall by his or her own foolish acts…

… and the foolish acts by Republicans will be coming hand over fist between now and 2024…

MAGA world is ‘catatonic’ about Tuesday losses — and they’re lost about what to do next…

Any win at all for a Democrat isn’t being believed by the right, according to MSNBC’s Ben Collins, who has been watching the right on message boards all night. He first used the word “despondent” but said at one point that the real word was “catatonic.”

Donald Trump has at times taken victory while also making attacks on candidates he said lost because they didn’t support him enough and abandoned the “big lie.”

Rachel Maddow asked if the MAGA world was believing what they saw in terms of the results. Collins said they don’t. Every Democrat that is called, they think it is a fraud. That could indicate that violence is coming from the far-right in retaliation.

Michigan voters favor abortion rights

Voters approved a ballot measure affirming the right to make personal reproductive decisions without interference, and negating a 1931 ban on abortions.

In Pennsylvania, Doug Mastriano, who played a key role in Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, lost his re-election bid to Josh Shapiro, a Democrat who put defending democracy at the start of his campaign. Jocelyn Benson, Michigan’s secretary of state who staunchly defended the 2020 election results also defeated Kristina Karamo, who rose to prominence after she spread false claims about fraud after ballots were counted in Detroit in 2020.

“Well, well, well, democracy has prevailed,” Benson said as she took the stage at a Democratic victory party in downtown Detroit around midnight Wednesday. “Today Michigan voters showed the world that they will vote for truth over lies, facts over conspiracy theories, real results over empty promises.”

It’s nothing new for Republicans to promise a blowout victory. The question is why the media falls for it…

The most famous purveyor of this strategy was Karl Rove, also known as “Bush’s Brain,” the strategist who eked out a history-changing victory for his guy in 2000. Rove was a big believer in the “bandwagon effect,” which assumed that a significant chunk of the voting public wlli go with those they perceive as winners. So when a race is close you put on a big show to pretend that you’re confident of winning, in the hopes of getting any last-minute wobblers or people who might not otherwise vote to get behind your team. It’s fun to win! In close races, Rove reasoned, this strategy might just make the difference.
