What brand of beans does he prefer?

It'd be funny if he took just enough votes from Trump to let Biden take the state.

Highly unlikely (that he'll effect any actual electoral outcomes) but still lulzy.

The last two elections are a shiat sandwich.  These two assholes aren't even in the top hundred thousand people I'd want running the country.

Still miles better than West.  Definitely for Biden.  Maybe for Trump.

============================

Oklahoma is extremely red.  it's not even close.

Per wikipedia:
Donald Trump won the election in Oklahoma with 65.3% of the vote. Hillary Clinton received 28.9% of the vote.

That's a 37% disparity.

If those splits happen again, Trump and Kanye could literally split the vote 50-50 and still beat Biden by almost 5%.

This is effectively meaningless news.

If anyone is worried, just arrange for him to do a long tour of every big pow-wow in the state.
My people will feed him into a hibernating stupor, because frybread, stew, meat cooked over open fires, coffee made over open fires, iced tea of both sweet and un-, rice cooked with meat, hominy cooked with meat, grape dumplings, whatever bakery items were on sale at Walmart, and various store-brand sodas we can get our hands on, is how we do dinners at the big gatherings. We will not stop until you are fed. He'll be knocked out until next St Patrick's.

Given recent events, you might want to watch your phrasing in the future.

Using the phrase "pow-wow" in light of the recent Supreme Court ruling "giving" a significant chunk of Oklahoma to the Cherokees.  I making light of the fact that some pearls might be clutched by the average woke white strawman Farker.

I though I saw yesterday he wasn't running?

So looking here:

https://ballotpedia.org/Deadline_to_r​u​n_for_president

There are only a handful of states that matter,haven't already had their deadlines, and have relatively low hurdles.

Pennsylvania 5k signature by 8/3
Wisconson 2k by 8/4

There are some others (i.e. Colorado: $1k by 8/5)

It's absolutely ridiculous that someone like that would be on the ballot, but here we are.

Biden obviously makes sense, since he's a life-long civil servant with significant experience in the White House already, and I can sort of understand West as someone whose heart is in the right place, but why would even the crazies in Oklahoma consider Trump?

Oklahoma would actually be better run by Russian oligarchs than the idiots they elect now.

Make Russia take Oklahoma.

A Trump voter voting for a black guy?    More likely to take votes from Biden.

I was confused when I saw the headline.  As Oklahoma traditionally requires a lot of signature for a independent to get on the presidential candidate.  Checking, I found that the law was changed in 2018 to allow someone to bet on the ballot without signature if they write a $35,000 check.  Otherwise it will take at least as many valid signatures as 3% of the Oklahomans who voted in the most recent governor's race.

Depth perception is a biatch.

That's not what polling showed. That's why Kanye backed out

Or should it be no body?

OK is getting it in gear.  We can usually go a day without a national embarrassment, but today we have this and the first Governor with Covid.  Look out Florida!
