Dan begins by explaining why Biden didn’t underperform and why emotionally this should feel like a big win
He and Brad also discuss the White religious voters who fled Trump for Biden and why it is/and is not a big deal
They touch on SCOTUS and the Affordable Care Act, including the surprising comments from Justice Kavanaugh
The bulk of the episode is then spent on discussing the real meaning behind Trump’s refusal to concede. Dan explains why a hard coup is not imminent; Brad sets what he calls Trump’s “Lost Pause” in the context of the “Lost Cause,” the myth and civil religion that emerged from the Confederacy and eventually shaped Southern politics and culture for a century.
