Additional Information: 

"Sore-Loserman 2000" was on merchandise that was sold after the 2000 general election in the United States. The slogan was meant to look like the Gore/Lieberman campaign signs. This election was controversial after it was revealed that many votes in Florida were not counted by the machines due to the "hanging chad" on many of the punch card ballots. This means that some ballots were incompletely punched and all of the ballots had to be recounted. After the 2000 election, states discontinued the use of punch card ballots.
