Can somebody just give Stacey Abrams a participation trophy already?

Stacey Abrams lost because - according to her - democracy failed. (My apologies for linking to CNN; apparently it was the only news outlet sleazy and unselfaware enough to publish that stupid comment.)

Wouldn't be because she just lost? Couldn't be because the majority of people preferred her opponent? Nope, it's because "democracy failed Georgia!

Man, this song is getting familiar. She sounds like Hillary.

So, I have a suggestion: Maybe we should all pitch in and buy them all participation trophies. You think that'd make 'em feel better and they finally just shut up?

Maybe Obama can give her one.

From your CNN link:


"Make no mistake, the former secretary of state was deliberate and intentional in his actions," Abrams said. "I know that eight years of systemic disenfranchisement, disinvestment and incompetence had its desired affect on the electoral process in Georgia."


See, I guess the part of this that you really don't quite get is that if people like her lose an election its all on account of because of systemic racism manifested as systemic disenfranchisement, disinvestment and incompetence on an electoral process.

I think that one is supposed to be "effect" being past tense, correct?

You are right. She deserves the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate.

"democracy failed" ... I guess it's time to get rid of democracy if it keeps failing us.

I'm sure the Chinese wouldnt mind teaching us a better way.

Wish I could give a flag for that reference! Great memories of classic TV AND spot on!

Next best thing...

Retarded mouth-breathing morons have signed a petition to stop Stacy Abrams from making them look bad.

If we don't agree with her, we are Nazis?

I just want to be clear on what I am for not supporting her ideas 100%. Nazi right?

Can I be a pirate instead? Or an evil wizzard. Please?

How can something fail that we never tried?

We are NOT a democracy.

We also failed to catch a fart and paint it blue.

True. Very observant of you.

It's called being a sore loser.

Nothing more. But in this day of "whining to get more", I suppose she figures why not, it'll get her press, keep her name out there...why, she could become President.

One of my wifes masters is in creative writing so it seems I frequently debate grammar, but I can never win because even when im right she pulls the "I have a masters in creative writing, so I can make crap up" card.

Democracy failed.....

Coming from the woman who tried to vote for herself twice...

I think a ribbon would work. It'd also be cheaper. I have crafting paper. Any one got markers? Mine are all dried out.

The worst thing is that she has the nerve to say this when voter registration and participation were *up* in her state for that election!

At that point it really, really makes her look like a sore loser.

Interesting, when democrats win there is no tampering or fraud, and democracy got it right.

When republicans win, they cheated, colluded with enemies, conspired, tampering, fraud and of course democracy failed!
