Rigged? Not really.

When Americans whine that the electoral system is rigged, they have virtually no idea what a truly rigged system is. Those who hold that view clearly haven’t traveled or lived much in developing countries. While there have been cases of rigged and stolen elections in the US, by and large that is the exception rather than the rule. Generally-speaking, the US election process is sound. It can always be improved, but to blame the process for your loss when you have conducted such a horrid horrid campaign from day one kind of misses the point. But if it is rigged, then I would hope the person who complains about it being rigged will continue to emphasize the problem if he wins. You can’t whine about unfairness only when it suits you.
