While behavior after losing a competition may be a great yardstick for the measurement of ones character, equally important is ones conduct after a victory.
We have all experienced an ill-tempered reaction to a thumping be it one who pitches the board game across the room, takes the proverbial ball and goes home or blames the drubbing on everything except their own incompetence (see: Maryland Republican Party).
Yet the smug, gloating boo-yah type of winner is equally infuriating; sometimes more so, only because the vanquished already suffered the indignity of defeat, and now has to stomach the additional humiliation of having the salt of superiority rubbed into the open wound.
Opponents of Marylands ballot questions not only woke on November 7 to news of a resounding defeat they also had to endure the crowing of a puffed-up Pol who obviously doesnt know when to shut up.
For all his bluster about civility, cooperation and One Maryland, Governor OCasinolackey didnt even wait for the voting machines to cool before stomping about like the only rooster in the barnyard.
Yes, the three ballot measures that he championed gay marriage, in-state tuition for illegals and expanded gambling were exceedingly successful; more so than even supporters could have imagined.
But, as Marylanders who oppose the policies of the monopoly party have learned, state Democrats arent satisfied with mere victory, they as Senate President Mike Miller reminded us back in 2006 were going to bury the Republicans six feet deep, faces up, so they wont come out for 20 years.
And given the current state of Republican leadership in this state he may have been about a half-century short in that assessment.

Maryland “Freak State” PING!
An ungracious winner is pathetic.
Lil’ Marty has his eyes on the WH, so he is following the lead of his idol by acting like a Chicago thug.
In his first term as gov owe-mally blew about $700000000 of the “rainy-day-fund” down (literally) a black hole (ie Baltimore). What a loser kleptocrat. He deserves a special front seat in Hell.
Let’s see . . . Who was it that warned the Bush 43 Administration about “triumphalism”?
This little dick wants to run for president in 2016.
No, seriously. Stop laughing.
I am embarrassed to say that he is SAR (Sons of the American Revolution). His saying the GOP should get the stink of the TEA party off it is disgusting. I wish there was a way to kick him out of the SAR. This guy probably would have been a Tory.
