I mis-typed Sen Boyer's name.

If we know anything at all about the greater number of Republicans, it's that looking like idiots is something they are prepared to live with.

"It makes us look like idiots"

Only because you're idiots.

No other reason.

Let's all hope that the unemployment rate among idiots rises dramatically in the coming election cycle...

This is what it looks like when a party sells out to a petulant child who refuses to admit he got his ass kicked.




All of the above.

Coddling him makes you all look like morons.

Congratulations GQP, you've gone full r*tard.

Remember the MAGAts on this site who were calling for audits after the election despite the fact that most states with thin margins already had provisions on the books that called for audits...what we see in Az is what they were really wanting. They didn't want honest audits. They wanted a sham that would support their wild lies.

So if recounts make people look like idiots, why did Hillary lobby for so many and join lawsuits? Why did Kerry do the same? Why do Dems ignore their own hypocrisy?

Nice if you to say it even in a sarcastic hateful way.

But do not project your hate on us.

We are worried that you traitorous insurrectionists might go crazy again and attack our nations capitol.

Or worse.

Re # 13

It's not a legal recount. It is intended to inflame the deplorables.

Uncle festered boils even came out of the basement to say you lost.

You should move on. The Dems are trying to help the country survive a pandemic. What the heck are you people trying to do?

it makes you look like idiots,
and the sorest of losers,
and the most partisan of voters,
and the most distrustful of the
accepted system of counting votes,
and the most cynical of Americans,
and that's even if you can be considered
Americans anymore...

Americans don't march on their own
Capital and try to overthrow the govt'.
You vote out the people you don't agree with,
and if you can't do that, then you lack the numbers,
sorry, but you lose! Maybe something is wrong
with your message!

Of course he did.

And the GOP is trying to ensure they never lose again, no matter how unpopular their platform is.

If you can't see that you're too stupid to live.
