The gall of a Republican loser

The local Sun Sailor of the NW region summarized the elections. It talked to David Gaither, a Republican who failed to win Terri Bonoff Senate seat.

"Gaither said Republicans had a tough task to victory, given they were up against an incumbent U.S. President and the Voter ID and Marriage amendments, which seemed to galvanize the DFL base in the state.

Galvanize the DFL?? Didn't your side put them in purpose to galvanize your base? And now that the chairs are turned you don't like it?

The gall!!

2. This is part of the Republican derangement syndrome.

It is closely related to another symptom: the idea they have that even when they lose, it really means that they win.

4. I hope they realize that the turnout that the amendments brought was an illustration of labor

flexing its muscles, and if they try to bring up the "right to work for less" bullshit again, that is what they'll get.

5. Right to work (for less) is dead

as long as the DFL controls the legislature and we have a DFL governor.

7. Either gall or realism

Those amendment proposals did indeed galvanize the DFL base, and galvanize people of compassion, sense, and goodwill across this state. Oh, they did indeed galvanize us. And it fills me with a deep, warm sense of pride to know they did.

8. Of course it did

but, according to the speaker's disgraced lover, he put it on the ballot in order to galvanize the Republican base. So now that the tables have turned, they complain.

Of course, this is what the Republicans are known to do. At the national level they complained about voters suppression, dirty, personal attacks and use of a lot of money.
