Eyes wide shut.

I left a post on Facebook recently that the Social Media Police took exception with.

It was innocuous, really. An innocent jab at the conspiracy theorists, that’s all it was.

In the post I asked how many dead people does it take to flip an election? Then I speculated, millions maybe?

And it works? I asked, feigning laughable skepticism.

If that’s the case, I intimated, why haven’t the Dems tried this before?

My Facebook post was largely ignored. Not that I expected many replies or comments, but a couple of thumbs-up or smiley faces would have sufficed.

That said, the Social Media Police (SMP) weren’t smiling.

They wanted to talk to me.

Talk to my lawyer, I said.

They settled for perusing my published but hardly polished personal columns.
