While President-Elect Donald Trump has been basking in the adulation of the crowds on what insiders are calling his “Neener Neener” tour, his lawyers and other allies have been busy trying to prevent recounts in the states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. This is puzzling, given the fact that the person calling for the recounts is Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein, who only garnered 1% of the popular vote nationwide. The sensible thing for Trump to do would be to ignore Stein completely and get on with filling the rest of his Reichsregierung. No one is exactly sure why Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein is insisting on these recounts. Trump himself has said that it’s nothing more than a Green Party publicity stunt for money, and he may be right – at least partially. Shrewder observers think that Stein is looking ahead to 2018, the year that Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren will be up for re-election. Why Stein thinks she would have a snowball’s chance in Hell against Warren is a mystery, but 2016 has certainly proved that pretty much any fool thing is possible in politics.
