Let’s Be Bad Winners
Jim Treacher once said that liberals are sore losers but even worse winners. I’ve looked for the post where he said it but I can’t find it – if you’re reading this Jim, you’ve got my email address.
Anyway, the point he made was absolutely correct. Who can forget Obama famously declaring “I won” to Republicans in congress back in 2009?
After last night’s stunning victories for Republicans, I have a suggestion. Let’s be bad winners for once.
For a few days or weeks (or maybe months) let’s really rub the left’s nose in this at every opportunity.
I want Republicans to hold onto their seats in the House and the Senate. I certainly don’t want to hurt the GOP’s chances in 2016 but just for a little while, can we have some fun with this victory? Can we introduce a few bills that we have no intention of passing just to fuck with the left’s heads?
How about a bill to ban the sale of tampons and condoms on the second Tuesday of every month? Or better yet, a tampon and condom control bill that requires a thorough background check for purchases with a 90 day waiting period – no pun intended.
Maybe someone should introduce a 100,000 page bill requiring all American citizens to own a gun. We’ll have the IRS enforce it and say that you can’t file your taxes until you can prove that you’ve purchased a gun and attended a firearms training class.
Newly elected Republicans should hold a press conference introducing the bill, a six foot high stack of pages that are sloppily thrown together and they should laugh repeatedly as they’re explaining it saying that none of them have read it. They could even do it on Christmas Eve.
Perhaps someone could introduce a bill requiring only liberal political groups to provide the names, addresses, phone numbers and tax returns of every member, leader and donor.
Again, none of this is serious, I just want to screw with their heads. Let’s threaten to do to liberals, every single thing they did to us and every stupid thing they falsely accused us of wanting to do to them.
Let’s be bad winners like them for once.
Just for fun.
I’m open to suggestions. What else could we do?
