Don’t let the ladies room door hit ya where the good Lord split ya!
Brutal. Though I imagine this will ultimately be decided by the courts, like all close elections.
After Golden has banged his head under Pelosi’s or Nasler’s desk a few dozen times he’ll be just another rubber stamp...like pingree.....Maine lost.
Poliquin won the majority.
Golden won with the scam.
Maine voters lost on both counts.
Did you hear the Golden sound bite mid afternoon reacting to the verdict?
If you did, you now know what a doofus sounds like.
Sour grapes make the best whine.
Lefties don't like losing when their vote is split.
Ranked Choice means the permanent majority tyranny rules even if they split their vote.
I don't like being forced to vote for anyone whom I do not believe deserves my vote. First, second, third, or otherwise. I do not believe ranked choice is constitutional for that reason.
The whine keeps on flowing.
As to doofus, if you'd seen him in small group "work" settings like I have, you'd have no choice but to reach the same conclusion.
That's now whine, that's evaluation based on first hand evidence. He has the leadership skills of a piece of firewood, and the skill set of a slice of pizza.
That is whine, Mel. Now for your cheese, just sniff your diaper.
One can only hope that the republicans in the house have the balls to all vote for Pelosi as speaker..........the There can be some real diaper sniffing among the upstarts on the left......
“Poliquin won the majority.”
Odd, I thought no one had a majority after Nov. 6 unless 46.41 % is the new 50+%.
The word is plurality, not majority. Look it up in the dictionary if that's within your skill set…
Apparently you've got a problem with understanding English. Poliquin won the majority of the votes originally cast. Majority means more than anyone else.
Sorry I meant Depends sniffing ,One can only hope that the republicans in the house have the balls to all vote for Pelosi as speaker..........the there can be some real diaper sniffing among the upstarts on the left....
If we are whining 10 days after the election and I assume to others, we shouldn't be doing so, then what does that say about Hillary losing two years ago and the constant comments about the President ?
One thing about AMG; it reveals the epitome of Jared Golden supporters in all their glory and dignity.
Winners in this race so far, losers in the human race.
No, you have the issue with English.

Of course they applaud it... it worked. They can now run 10 ultra-left candidates without losing.
I've always said you wouldn't recognize satire if it hit you right upside the head. Didn't read the article, didya?
From the Oxford English Dictionary....
"In an election, the difference in the number of votes between the winning person or group and the one that comes second"
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that's all.”
The satire is nice, but maybe too close to the mark... the left does applaud it. And for precisely the reason given. Do you seriously believe they'd be in favor if it didn't favor their preferred outcome?
Satire works well only if it actually reveals something... the "reveal" is too obvious here.
Angus King and Chellie Pingree won their respective races handily, without the need for a RCV runoff.
Maybe try fielding R candidates who aren’t sniveling cowards next time?
(And don’t feel sorry for Bruce Poliquin...as a multimillionaire, he’ll do just fine. He’s rich and sleazy enough to win a place in the dumpster fire that is the Trump administration.)
Any bets that if king or Pingree were running for the house in the 2nd district with no RCV they'd both lose....
I voted for Bruce Poliquin on Election Day. He was choice #4.
"Any bets that if king or Pingree were running for the house in the 2nd district with no RCV they'd both lose....
I'm sure Pingree would and she knows it which is proably why she hasn't entered a statewide election since 2002.
...do you actually think you're better off with Golden and the Democrats running things (into the ground)? Are you still claiming you're a "libertarian"?
I’d vote for anyone who opposes Trump.
Thomas would you give us an outline of what the dems' plan is to make America better.....I guess I may have missed it in all the hub bub about Russian collusion, pussy grabbing, Kavanaugh hearings etc.
