Close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades and atom bombs.

In elections close is exactly described with one word: LOSING.

Exactly.

But "close" almost gives cover to the MSM calling Trump a loser at every drop of a MAGA hat.

The election for the Ohio 12th district gets a do-over in November, so Boris and Natasha will have another shot and ****ing with Moose and Squirrel in a few weeks. I don't think the GOP guy will pull off another win. That area is soccer mom hell. I think the was John ****-face kasick's district, so that should give you an idea of what lives there.

... horseshoes, hand grenades, nukes and napalm...

Its also the reason we should never do away with the electoral college. Each state essentially has a firewall around it. If one candidate wins by more than the total number of absentee ballots, then those ballots arent even counted. The race is over and we can move on. If we go to a nation-wide popular vote then every vote in every city, town and hamlet must be counted and re-counted (and litigated) to get the total popular vote. That would make the Florida recount look small. We wouldnt know the results until May the following year.
