Leaving out the headline so as not to give it away, here’s the opening passage from a story in RawStory about a new filing by the Giuliani gang. (And I love how they, too, refer to them as the "crack legal team" as I did yesterday.) The article begins –
“You just cannot make this stuff up.
“Donald Trump’s crack legal team Thursday filed a lawsuit alleging Michigan fraud that cited a list of seemingly irregular township voting percentages. Unfortunately, the data in a supporting affidavit might have been more persuasive had it not come from two states away in Minnesota.
“Yes, it appears ‘MI’ for Michigan is easily confused by ‘MN’ for Minnesota if the lawyers on your ‘elite strike force’ legal team aren’t actually all that elite. In this case, the grievous error was flagged by none other than Powerline.com, a blog authored by some extremely conservative attorneys.”
The article on the Powerline.com website was titled there, “Do Trump’s Lawyers Know What They Are Doing?”
And one of the passages in their article reads –
“This is a catastrophic error, the kind of thing that causes a legal position to crash and burn. Trump’s lawyers are fighting an uphill battle, to put it mildly, and confusing Michigan with Minnesota will at best make the hill steeper. Credibility once lost is hard to regain.”
Actually, it's even worse than this. And yes, it can be worse. That's because the counties the Giuliani Gang pointed to where they suspected voter fraud was not in Blue Democratic counties in Michigan...but Red Republican counties in Minnesota. So, if there actually was voter fraud -- which is highly unlikely -- it would be fraud by Republicans.
