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.

Poliquin won the majority.
Golden won with the scam.
Maine voters lost on both counts.

Did you hear the Golden sound

Did you hear the Golden sound bite mid afternoon reacting to the verdict?

If you did, you now know what a doofus sounds like.

Lefties don't like losing

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.

As to doofus, if you'd seen

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.

Cold pizza.

“Poliquin won the majority.”

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.

If we are whining 10 days

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 ?

Touche, Bruce!

Touche, Bruce!

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.

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

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

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.)

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"?
