Booty Frogs


The lead editorial in today’s Wall Street Journal calls Trump the Republican Party’s “biggest loser,” pointing out that he lost the 2018 midterms for his party, he lost the 2020 election, he lost two Georgia senate runoffs in 2021, and now he’s a loser in 2022. Don’t forget that when he did “win” the presidency in 2016, he still lost the popular vote. Donald Trump never polled higher than 50 percent while he was president (sic) and hasn’t since he left the White House. The majority of Americans dislike Donald Trump. This is not my opinion, it’s a fact.

The Republicans were promising there would be a red wave and they’d retake the House, Senate, and governorships in record numbers. The red wave didn’t happen. Why? Partly because of Donald Trump and his election lie.

When I heard Trump was going to hold a rally in Pennsylvania for Mehmet Oz, I thought, “YES!”. I knew that would hurt the Oz campaign.

Trump endorsements work in primaries and in Pennsylvania, Trump endorsed the election-denying candidate, snake-oil-peddling Dr. Oz, over the more formidable businessman David McCormick. Oz lost. Holding the late rally right before the election hurt Oz and reminded voters that he was a Trump guy.

The Trump candidate for the New Hampshire senate seat lost by eight points while the Republican candidate for governor, who never bought into Trump’s election lies, won.

Herschel Walker may still win Georgia in a runoff in December, but his numbers were well below Republican governor Brian Kemp.

In my congressional district, Trumper Yesli Vega lost to incumbent Abigail Spanberger, who the GOP heavily targeted. The 7th district in Virginia was considered a bellwether and gave us one of the first results of the night. It turned out to be a bellwether.

The MAGA election-denying candidates for governor and senate in Arizona are currently losing.

MAGA-loving election-denying Lauren Boebert is currently behind in her reelection bid, which will be a huge loss for the congressional Dum-Dum Caucus.

Trump will take credit for the election of J.D. Vance to the Senate, but that was in Ohio where the Democrats gave up, but still could have won. And expect Vance to once again distance himself from Trump. Donald Trump will also take credit for Florida but honestly, that’s all Ron DeSantis who personally re-mapped the congressional districts to elect Republicans. Also, Democrats nominated Charlie Crist for the governorship and Val Demmings for the Senate, which really helped the GOP.

The Republican Party will still stand with Trump, beg for his approval, rush to Mar-a-Lago for photo-ops, fawn all over him, and kiss his huge orange ass despite the fact it hurts them with the American people. America doesn’t like Trump. Get it through your thick stupid heads, Republicans. Or don’t. I’m fine when it comes to politics if you don’t.

But sticking with him hurts the country. These lies and conspiracy theories are destructive. I guess all those memes of hammers and underwear didn’t help you Tuesday night. But then again, you always did put politics, and cult worship, before the country.

The Wall Street Journal wrote, “What will Democrats do when Donald Trump isn’t around to lose elections? We have to wonder because on Tuesday Democrats succeeded again in making the former President a central campaign issue, and Mr. Trump helped them do it.”

Trump’s ego won’t let him go away. As for asking the Republicans to stop fawning all over him, first, they gotta stop enabling his crimes. The Republican Party is stupid enough to nominate Trump again for the presidency in 2024, which he’ll probably announce his campaign for before the end of November.

Republicans, I’m glad you all turned into a bunch of frogs on election night, but I saw your warts a long time ago.

  1. Personally I think Trump is given too much credit for this perceived loss. Many Republucans lost because as a whole they threatened democracy, and especially women’s rights. Give credit where credit is due. Most Americans do not want to lose democracy. Most women fo not want to lose control of their bodies.
    Are the men of America still trying to deny the power of the female vote, and of the men who love those women? Get with the times, please. Give women credit!
    Meanwhile, this election had decided nothing. No great statements were made on either side, except where gerrymandering ruled. Cheating is not the way to win in a democracy! Except, cheating is so American.
