In this town, political arguments often change places very quickly. Actually, observers could get a whiplash when that happens.


Before this election, we had elected Democrats scaring voters with irresponsible conspiracy theories that President Trump was going to somehow use his office to interfere with state elections or that he was in cahoots with the Postal Service not to deliver ballots.


After the 2016 election, the irresponsibly worded talking point was that Russia “hacked our elections”, leading to polls two years later showing that 67 percent of Democrats believed, falsely, that “Russia tampered with vote tallies in order to get Donald Trump elected.”


Now, let’s turn to the 2020 election just completed. Those same people are now earnestly warning of the dangers of Americans questioning certified election results.


Those who supported #resist after Trump’s election are now lecturing others about the need for faith in elections.
