On the first anniversary of the Obama presidency the BBC described the historic Republican Party win in Massachusetts as something that would rob the Democrats of their filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.
“Rob?" I choked on my cornflakes reading this.
“Deny”, yes; but not rob.
Elections are ‘robbed’ by fraud, bribery or intimidation. They are not robbed by counting the votes fairly.
The Massachusetts people spoke. Someone at the BBC did not like what they said.
