The Democrats’ next sore loser was Al Gore, the inventor of the Internet. He lost to an obscure Texan in a race that was decided in the Electoral College. Al whined and tied the election up for 35 days until the U.S. Supreme Court had had enough and called the election for that obscure nobody from Texas. The election was decided in Florida by 537 votes after the votes of almost 6 million Floridians were counted. Doubtless Al is still very irritable about the 2000 election, but it must give him some comfort to hear from Congressgirl Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that we shall all die horribly in 12 years when the planet Earth suddenly goes poof.
Then in 2004, Sen. John Kerry appeared before the Democratic National Convention and declared “I’m John Kerry, and I’m reporting for duty.” He was to be the Democrats’ opponent to that obscure Texan who beat Al Gore, and he was manifesting another of the Democrats’ unflattering characteristics. Not only are they poor losers but they are also delusional. Mr. Kerry’s exploitation of his Vietnam service and eventual “betrayal of trust” with his comrades still serving in Vietnam while he had returned home to harangue the war and to visit with the North Vietnamese in Paris, stirred up the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. They turned on this poseur and helped to beat him in the election. Over a decade later, Mr. Kerry was still complaining, this time in the New Yorker, that his opponent had stolen the election.
Finally, there is the outcome of the 2016 election. Hillary lost it in the Electoral College and she still is apoplectic about it. It is now well over two years since her defeat and she has most of her party still raging against the Russians, President Trump and anyone in agreement with the president. Yet, the evidence proves that there was no collusion. Her call to “resistance,” should remind us of the Hillary of 1968.
