10 REASONS THE CA RECALL WAS THE MOST PERFECT AND FAIR ELECTION OF ALL TIME

Mail-in ballots are the most secure system of voting ever devised: That should be obvious after they worked flawlessly to elect Joe Biden. A rich white man is running the election: Everyone knows you can trust rich white men. Governor Newsom printed extra ballots, just in case you lose yours: They are available for free in thousands of ballot vending machines around the state! Cool! Newsom volunteered to personally count all the ballots himself, for maximum security: What a nice guy! Because CNN said so: And CNN has been named the most accurate source of news in the state of California for 20 years running! The progressive and open-minded people of California would NEVER conspire to prevent a black man from becoming governor: That's just silly. Gavin Newsom is an expert at keeping things safe and secure: Like the southern border. People like Harvey Weinstein are able to trust Gavin Newsom with their deepest, darkest secrets: So you can surely trust him with your election. With all

"The church is too close to drive and too far to walk." "Both of my girlfriends attend church there." "The pastor stays in the Bible too much." "The pastor is too attractive. When I see him preaching, I have impure thoughts and I am distracted." "My wife cooked bacon for breakfast, and our entire family smelled like bacon." "The worship leader pulls up his pants too often. It's distracting." "I always get hemorrhoids on Sundays." "Someone called me 'brother' instead of using my name."
