Marjorie Taylor Greene boasted about winning unopposed and it’s a glorious self-own
You’ll probably know all about Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican extremist who became the first supporter of the far-right QAnon conspiracy theory to win a seat in the House.
We only mention her – stick with us – because she’s been on Twitter boasting about the amount of votes she got despite running for Congress unopposed.
But “empty” doesn’t quite do this boast justice.
I ran for office (and was elected with 74.7% of the vote) to represent the people, not the politicians.
And that's exactly what I'm doing.

Because it turned into the ultimate self-own, as these people were only too delighted to point out.
How does an unopposed candidate lose 25% of the vote?

You ran unopposed.
And still only managed to get three quarters of the vote.
Great job, superstar.

Girl… your ability to leave out details.

You managed to lose 25 percent of a one-person race. Sweet.

And this detail was particularly delicious.
Wait… so you ran against someone who dropped out two months before Election Day and couldn't even match your predecessor's 2018 percentage? pic.twitter.com/CNqvBfkdQG

But just in case the penny still hadn’t dropped …
I won a 100 meters race today.
No else was competing.
But I won.
See how stupid this sounds?

You’re the leader of the Low IQ-Anon.
