Virgil and Brie give the definitive left take on Election Day 2020 you won't hear on MSNBC. They address the worst bad faith efforts to pitch Joe Biden's narrow (likely) victory and his toxic impact on down ballot races as a cause for celebration, and offer some hope for progressives in this moment. They also debate the left's defeatist attitude toward third parties, and Virgil tells the story of how he came to be known as Virgil Texas.  Subscribe to Bad Faith on Patreon to support our work and instantly unlock our full premium episode library: http://patreon.com/badfaithpodcast   Consider the Bad Faith Instagram, the Bad Faith Twitter, and even the Bad Faith YouTube.
