Cuckold Review: Republicans Have a Sacred Duty to Rewrite Ohio State Law to Put Joe Biden on the Ballot

And also -- if they don't rush to do this, they're terrible hypocrites about "lawfare" and every bit as bad as Alvin Bragg and and Jack Smith.

This is National Review, everyone. America's Conservative Beacon.

The Democratic National Convention does not conclude until August 22, when Joe Biden is formally renominated for president. When the Democrats announced they were scheduling their convention so late in the election cycle, observers immediately noted that the timing fell afoul of two deadlines written into law, those of Alabama and Ohio, which require nominees to be submitted 90 days before Election Day (in other words, the week of August 12).

The matter can be easily fixed; all a legislature need do is pass a technical bill adjusting the date, as legislatures have done frequently in both the past and present, most recently in 2020 during the pandemic. And in fact, one month ago the -- overwhelmingly Republican -- Alabama legislature acted to do just that, sending a bill to Governor Kay Ivey that made sure Joe Biden's name would not be stricken from their voters' ballots.

Ohio's state house, however, has been disconcertingly mulish about acting to fix the state's version of this problem. It adjourned once on May 8, and then again on May 22, without addressing the matter. Republican governor Mike DeWine has now called for a special session of the legislature to convene in order to deal with the issue, saying, "Ohio is running out of time to get Joe Biden, the sitting president of the United States, on the ballot this fall. Failing to do so is simply not acceptable. This is a ridiculous -- this is an absurd situation."

We agree with Governor DeWine --

Redundant! As if National Review ever has to tell you it agrees with ultra-liberal fake Republican Mike DeWine.

Ohio's legislature should pass a bill ensuring the president of the United States' name remains on the ballot this November. We emphasize that this is a matter of the utmost gravity. It is not -- and cannot possibly ever be -- about cheap and temporary partisan advantage. It is a question about the fundamental legitimacy of American elections.

Here they masturbate themselves into ecstatic froth:

Even more appallingly, were Ohio Republicans to deny Biden a spot on November's ballot out of pointless spite, they would be undermining every single argument they -- and Donald Trump -- have been making for the past several years about how government is weaponized against Republicans.

National Review is a Democrat op. Has been for 20 years.

Alex the Chick is a bit miffed:

Reality. That is a duly enacted state law that has existed since July, 2010. That is nearly 14 years. This is not obscure. This is not unknown. It is, literally, the state law of Ohio. It is not something that those dastardly Republicans dreamt up just now to screw Biden.

Sanity. It is guano ingesting, mercury nitrate hat wearing, lead paint munching insane to act as if the Republicans have any control, at all, whatsoever, in any possible way, for when the Democrat convention is held. It is unhinged to place the blame on Republicans.

Principle. This is excreting fecal matter directly onto the legal concept of strict constectionism. Applying the law as written is not twisting the law to attempt to get Trump. Every single person at NRO who thinks these are the same is either lying, stupid, or both.

I will type this slowly. Either the Editors at NRO believe that statutes should be applied as written or they do not. It is that simple. It is the Editors who are undermining the rule of law here with this absolutely lunatic editorial.

That editorial is embarrassing to read. It is a simple matter to state look the law says what it does. It has also been exempted in the past. Such exemption should be granted again, even though doing so undermines basic principles of statutory construction, due to realpolitik.

She notes this article, which claims the Democrats can nominate Biden "virtually," before the connection, before the Ohio deadline.

But that solution wouldn't allow Ramesh Ponuru to preen like a prom queen!

I said "AHOY," sir!
