  •  I'm glad we're ahead in the betting (3+ / 0-)

    but I don't rely on that, and I wouldn't place such a bet.  For one thing, there are no certainties - at least not for our side who plays the rules.  And for another, being wrong about an election doesn't really shut them up, it just makes them more arrogant and mendacious.  

    The main benefit of something like this is that it introduces accountability into their reckless lying and propagandism, even if only to point out how cowardly they are whenever the prospect of putting their money where their mouth is comes along and they refuse.  I'm not much of a gambler myself - I hate losing a lot more than I like winning, and losing happens a lot more often in most forms of gambling.  But when you pretty much can't lose because the subject is a documented fact, you might as well bet.

    Voter suppression is treason.
