You have to stand for something, but it appears the Republican Party of Texas is against COVID testing and short lines for voting.
Thatâ€™s based on a trollish tweet the Texas GOP posted Friday that seemed to lambaste people who think itâ€™s possible to have easy access to voting and COVID-19 tests.
People with actual empathy might recognize that the partyâ€™s message didnâ€™t hit the way it was intended and just take the â€œL,â€ but the Texas GOP instead decided to stick, the way an 8-year-old kid might insist, â€œI meant to do thatâ€ after crashing their bike.
In addition, Abbott and other state Republicans signed a bill last fall to ban 24-hour and drive-thru voting, create harsher voter ID requirements for mail-in ballots and stop election officials from sending voters unsolicited applications for mail-in ballots.
Twitter users had harsh words for the tweets, which seemed designed to do nothing but own those danged libs.
