Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America not enjoy watching the quixotic Jill Stein recount come to a whimpering end but applaud Michigan for using the episode to push for stronger voter ID laws. They also groan as Donald Trump says he doesn’t need daily intelligence briefings. And they wade into the growing furor over what role Russia played in hacking the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta – and what to do about it if it’s true.

    Now that I hear it in his own words, I think I see where Trump is coming from. A lot of business processes involve meetings for the sake of meetings, like status updates, where the status is that nothing had changed since the day before. Maybe the briefers are glad to have their mornings back when there is nothing new. And I say this as someone who still has a McMullin sticker on my globalist Honda Accord.

    I have little doubt that next time the Republicans talk about voter fraud, we will be reminded by the media and the Democrats that that thanks to Jill Stein’s recount efforts, we know that there is no voter fraud.

    Let us all remember that these were recounts, nothing more. Not an audit of the elections to see if people voted who shouldn’t have. We should be making that point preemptively.
