Liberal news outlets were singing the blues on the morning after Tuesday’s crushing defeat of incredibly well-funded Democrat Jon Ossoff to Republican Karen Handel as they vied for Georgia’s vacant sixth congressional district seat.
A former Republican senator himself, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough finally addressed the healthy elephant in the room, stating that the election should serve as a “wake-up call for the Democratic Party.”
Pointing out that Democrats have been losing legislative races for the past nearly seven years, Scarborough stated that “moral victories” are hollow.
“This should be a wake-up call for the Democratic Party, who has been doing nothing but losing since 2010 in these legislative races,” Scarborough said. “And at some point — you know, I heard last night Ossoff say, ‘We’ve started something great.’ No, you lost. At some point, the time for moral victories is over. And sometimes winning is just about winning. They need to learn from this and figure out how to win next year.”
Other media outlets, including CNN, have been trying to cushion this latest blow by returning to their narrative that President Trump colluded with Russia to throw the 2016 presidential election to Trump. They still apparently don’t understand why Republicans are winning and Democrats just keep losing despite poll results which never seem to be truthful anymore.
