Even when Democrats win, they lose. [View all]

That is the obvious media ploy, every "effing" time.

Tuned into MSNBC for a bit, and one of their spokesmodels was talking about the Virginia election results.

As a reminder, rich Retrumplicans pumped a shit-ton of money into Virginia. After the state had lost their minds in 2021 and elected 3 fascists to their 3 highest statewide offices, MAGAts controlled Gov, Lt. Gov, AG and the State House. Dems controlled the Senate.

Thanks to the Dems holding the Senate, Virginia was prevented from becoming Eastern Alabama.

Glen Youngkin was going to put on his Mr. Rogers garb and march out of this election with control of the entire state.

Well, instead of that plan, Dems held the Senate, took the House, swept Moms-for-liberty School Board candidates out like yesterdays trash, and sent the Assholes with Casseroles running off to Newsmax with their tales between their legs.

The MSNBC dude just couldn't resist pointing out that "had just a couple thousand votes in a few races went the other way, the Rs would have won", so "Dems know they shouldn't celebrate too much".

Well, like my dad used to say; "If, dog, rabbit", and I would say; "what does that mean?", and then my dad would say; "if the dog hadn't stopped to take a leak, he'd have caught the rabbit"....

I will bet my left-nut that had the MAGAts been successful, there would have been no discussion about how a "few votes could have changed it". The media would have depicted Youngkin as the second coming of Christ.

It's really hard for me to understand. The media needs to know that they will be the first ones marched off to the gulag if these Dipshits win.
