It’s a fact of political life.
The further to the left you go, the greater the sense of entitlement becomes. And the greater the sense of entitlement, the bigger the sore loser. And now the Dems may have finally produced a worse sore loser than Hillary.
Marie Newman was the left’s pick to purge one of her own fellow Dems who had a conservative position on abortion. She was backed by Obama’s people, Emily’s List, Planned Parenthood and the usual gang.
She still lost and she’s taking the defeat really well.
“I don’t know what the future holds,” she said Sunday in an exclusive interview with POLITICO. “I’m not closing any doors on anything. The next month will be about looking at where I can be most impactful. I’ve already been offered many things. I’ll be looking at a wide variety of things.”
A wide variety of things. Whining, bellowing, raging, screaming.
Newman told POLITICO on Sunday her loss is a testament to the obstacles facing women running for office
That’s the Hillary playbook.
Newman said it’s off-base to presume the district isn’t ready for a progressive candidate. And despite having the vigorous support of groups like Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America and EMILY’s List, she accused Lipinski of giving the issue of abortion too much prominence in the race.
Even though it was her own backers who were making it the issue.
“The district is ready. It’s a savvy, sophisticated constituency and voter population. They are hard-working and they want people they know are going to deliver,” she said. “They now know very clearly that Mr. Lipinski has done nothing for the working class … I think they uncovered that later in the campaign, but they now understand that.”
That must be why you lost.
“Women have always had to fight three times as hard to get to the same place as men. That old adage is holding true here,” Newman said. “It is unfortunate that in two major congressional seats that a woman did not come out on the other side as a victor. But I think we have to look at it and know that at least part of it is male dominance, the machine, and a wide variety of forces.”
The Russians. It was the Russians.
