Day one of Wisconsin’s presidential election vote recount was a resounding success for Team Hillary. Jill Stein’s Excellent Adventure yielded an extra vote for Hill the Thrill. That’s correct: one. At that rate, trailing by only 22,176, if the Clinton Camp could’ve found a way to have kept the recount going for roughly 61 years (without ever taking a day off), they might have taken the state back from Trump.
Unfortunately for Team Machine, however, day two of the recount apparently wasn’t the resounding success day one was. In fact, it was an unmitigated disaster, seeing Trump apparently surge ahead by three- recount them- three additional votes, last I checked.
The Stein Expedition did manage to dig up 17 more votes on day one for its leader, oddly enough, practically doubling her original vote total, and likely leaving Clinton Green with envy.
This endeavor illustrates progressive’s modus operandi in a nutshell: spend tons of other people’s money on things that can’t (and/or shouldn’t) be changed.
