They Won’t Give Up

I said something like this a while back, but it bears repeating.

So basically, Trump’s “rigging” argument comes down to this: “Nice little government you’ve got here. Be a shame if anything happened to it.” Sadly it’s almost certain that if he doesn’t win his followers and the GOP will do everything in their power to ensure that Clinton and the rest of us pay a heavy price for it. That’s pretty much what they’ve done for the past 24 years and there’s little reason to think they’ve changed.  They simply refuse to believe they can lose.

This is why the Democrats need to win not only the White House, but the Senate, the House, and start to work on the state legislatures.  The only way to ensure that we won’t have another four or eight years of stagnation and pious tantrums from the likes of Peter King and Mitch McConnell is to leave them with nothing but stand-ups for Fox News.

They can refuse to believe they can lose all they want.  The trick is to make them lose no matter what they believe.
