Watching Republicans Slowly Erode Any Trust in American Governance

What we are watching is Karl Rove in action. Romney has clearly lost, but all that matters to the GOP is making the country ungovernable.

Patriotism!

    I don’t know about the wingiest, but the FOX anchors were looking at him like he had lost his goddamn mind.

    Meanwhile, I want Obama to get out there in front of the crowd in Grant Park and accept the eleciton BEFORE Mitt concedes. Fucking step on his throat as well as his lines. Mitt is a has been who never was. Don’t even give him that much attention.

    As of press time, Nate Silver is possibly a witch.
    __
    His unusually accurate predictions are, thus far, explained by his use of validated statistical methods. His disregard of momentum, gut feelings, and the interpretations of people paid to promote certain viewpoints is not the result of supernatural assistance.

    While we on the Is Nate Silver a Witch editorial board are strict rationalists, Mr Silver’s performance has been uncanny enough to raise small but significant doubts as to whether his methodology is entirely of this world. We are following the situation closely.

    How can this be a center right nation when we just re elected a black man for president?
    The pundits are worse than I thought.
    And that’s saying something.

    Sweet, sweet fucking wingnut tears on Fox. What this means for conservatives, with shellshocked expressions.

    Bring on the death panels, gun confiscation, mandatory Christian abortions and forced gay marriages.

    I think Romney gave a good concession speech. Yeah, the parts about honesty and integrity make the mind boggle coming from him, but the words were good. :-)

    So happy Obama won. The fact that nearly half the country still voted for Mittens is fucking depressing. Fuck those douche bags. Good on Warren tonight, though. Hurray for the good guys tonight.

    @Helen

    The McCain campaign made damn sure that Palin wasn’t allowed to say a word when he conceded.

    Direct quote from Steve Schmidt (McCain/Palin campaign head honcho) earlier tonight about that on MSNBC:

    “We didn’t want her to debase the moment.”

    Or he ran out of fingers and toes trying to figure out how many days there are in four years so he could do a running countdown for new delusional BFF President-elect Ryan.

    @Maude: It was awesome. Breathtaking. Incredible. It was so close and even though Obama had the polls in his favor, it was no sure thing. Citizens United and voter suppression were against us.

    I’m so stoked. Four more years of sanity. Four more years of competence. Four more years of international respect.

    Florida AND Ohio. Think about that. These states have been perennial cluster fucks for 3 election cycles. And they didn’t even matter this time.

    We are a center-right nation; that’s why we vote for the center-right party, the Democrats.
