Dems still stunned when they lose.

This piece in the Daily Beast is like a cry to the Gods: where did we go wrong?!!!

On the Democratic side, the combined efforts of the Ossoff campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee help build a monster operation unprecedented in Georgia Democratic politics. By the end of the race, they had knocked on more than 500,000 doors, hired 100 staffers, recruited 12,000 active volunteers and spent more than $11 million on ads on everything from the Today show to Korean newspapers and gospel stations.But, and this is the part that will sting Democrats for a long time: It still wasn't enough.

But gee, they still lost. How can this be?!!!

But after $23 million, a candidate who genuinely ignited the grassroots, and a Republican president who may or may not be (but probably is) under FBI investigation and can't stop talking about it, the real question Democrats need to answer is: What's it going to take to win an election in the era of Trump?As of Tuesday night, they still have no idea.

Well, it might just be that people are tired of tax-and-spend Liberalism, where a new regulation or a new policy that comes along to scrape away a little more of your money, time and freedom every goddamn week.

It might be that Trump is not the fool the Dems think he is, and that putting Americans first in their own country is what they really want.

It might be that world-wide Apology Tours and their president BOWING to the execrable king of a shit-hole desert nation (that still has slavery!) pissed them off.

I'm just saying, that might be a thing. Y'know?
