Said President Obama about Donald Trump's assertion that the election system is rigged.
But isn't that the best time to protest that a game is rigged — before the game is over? After it's over and you've lost, you seem more self-interested and less credible.
I think Obama's point would be better if he'd said "He started whining when he saw that he was going to lose the game." (And Obama did also say something like that: "If whenever things are going badly for you and you lose, you start blaming somebody else, then you don't have what it takes to be in this job.")
ADDED: Instapundit, quoting the quote in the post title, says: "To be fair, isn't this what someone who rigged an election would say?"
