    Poor guy.

    He’ll be “Going Galt” in his own personnal life – and mind – and that’s WAAAAAAY too small a place to support even ONE FECKIN’ IDJIT!!!

    Go ahead, loser.
    Ignore reality.
    Never mind that that’s what got you into this mess in the first place.

    Please Go Galt. Go Galt hard, long, and deep. Go so Galt that you actually get off your ass and move to that earthly paradise where there is no government, where everybody prays constantly, and where everyone has at least one gun. Get off your lazy good-for-nothing ass, move to Somalia, and scrape together a living from the rock-hard earth with your own Galtite hands, you worthless piece of GOP.

    So why didn’t they ask the obvious question of this libertarian;

    You are old and sick and the only people who are willing to help you are your Democrat relatives since you libertarian friends don’t help moochers like old and sick people. Do you tell them to take a hike and do you die alone in your own filth for The Cause or do you accept their help?

    John. I really hope no one cares about this. The campaign for this election is fini and we won. Drop the “Omg, look what they said” posts for a while. We know they are feckless turds. Move on.

    Let’s leave the idiots on the other side to fixate on the past while we talk about the future.

    As I said this morning, this guy is an unsympathetic Ignatius J Reilly, as are most hateful glibertarians, and most of the NRO staff.

    also, too, you know who else has a big sad? the world’s leading female drag queen:

    Coulter lamented Romney’s presidential loss when she called into Ingraham’s show. “I’m pretty pessimistic about the country,” she said. She said that Romney ran a “magnificent campaign,” a comment with which Ingraham strongly disagreed.
    “People are suffering. The country is in disarray. If Mitt Romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. We have more takers than makers and it’s over. There is no hope,” Coulter said.

    A Democrat is hanging from a ledge, and you ask him to say “Obama sucks.” He does, and you pull him up. And then he says, “Thanks for saving me, but Obama doesn’t suck, actually.” Do you push him back off?

    I used to frequent Reason magazine’s blog, Hit and Run (don’t ask me why). Dondero was considered a troll and a nutcase even there. So I don’t think he really merits our attention, or New York magazine’s. This is the worst kind of nutpicking.

    I seriously don’t get this whole “Democrat Party” crap. I don’t. Like, what are they trying to do? It’s not like “Democrat” as opposed to “Democratic” is any more insulting. All it does is showcase their ignorance of the English language.

    Simple: Avoid them both. Go to Mexico for your medical treatment. Avoid all the red tape and bureaucracy.

    So much for America having the best health care in the world, eh?

    This boggles the mind:

    I’ve just had a pretty intense experience with someone close to me today, someone I’ve known since childhood. It’s hard for me not to respond to this person. Very, very hard. But so far, I’ve held. If there is one person out there who I would break down my rule for it is this person. Lifelong friend. East Coast in fact. It’s been 24 hours and I’m still holding strong. this person read the original piece I wrote. The email response from this individual sits in my in-box. I almost responded twice today. Even started writing the reply. But I pulled back. I am truly hoping that this person sends me an email with the following message in the Subject line: I have left the Democrat Party and will never vote Democrat again.

    So, you’ve written off a life-long friend and until and unless that lifelong friend comes groveling with exactly the response you demand he will be an unperson to you.

    I’m guessing he doesn’t have all that many good friends.

    Citizen Alan says:

    I’m almost sympathetic to him in a way. For the last month, I had been emotionally preparing for a complete mental break-down in the event of a Romney win. I had a list of people I was going to contact the next day to inform that they had voted for the Antichrist and would deserve the hell God had prepared for them (one of whom was a former boss). There’s every chance it could have been me posting an insane 20-minute rant on Youtube as I steadily go drunk on Schnapps. Now, I feel ten years younger, and I suddenly have a strange sense of compassion for all the emotional basketcases on the Right. Totally unexpected.

    Right now the wingnuts are mired in the shock stage of grief. Pretty soon they will make it to the blame and anger stage, and hurl everything and the kitchen sink at one another. Then it will get very bad.

    Some of the brighter bulbs in that house of horror, are starting to figure out what the rest of us have known for a while now. That They have slipped their surgeon knots and look ugly to too many people with a vote in this country. How they tame that beast will be driven by an insatiable appetite for power for breaking shit across the globe. Watch yer backs. The slung shit, It will come from every direction.

    Dondero, reasoning that the only recourse to Obama’s victory is “outright revolt,” laid out the terms of the “personal boycott” against Democrats which he plans to maintain for the rest of his life and that he hopes his followers will as well. What does the boycott entail? Cutting all ties with Democratic family members, friends, and lovers; refusing to work for a Democratic boss; spitting on the ground when a Democrat talks to you; and possibly shitting on your Democratic neighbor’s lawn, among other things:

    In my experience Republicans and Democrats don’t interact much at all anymore compared to how it used to be just ten years ago or before – they don’t listen to the same music or have the same hobbies and in many cases don’t work in the same industries

    I experienced a guy just like this yesterday.

    I belong to a group page on FB that is for people who grew up in my hometown. Its a fun nostalgic thing. Yesterday, one of the members puts up post demanding to know who voted for Obama. His intention was to block anyone who voted for Obama, even if they were his friend. Of course people started pushing back and soon he was writing on people’s walls demanding to know how they voted. Of course some people piped up that they did and proudly. I guess he tired of blocking people because he has now disappeared. It was surreal that someone is so fucking worked up that they are picking fights, on FB for fuck’s sake.

    I’m not far from that myself. I remember how dispiriting it was to watch Kerry lose in 2004, although I didn’t go the public-rending-of-garments/fuck-all-y’all route that conservatives have chosen.

    And maybe in a day or so these stories will seem like piling on. But dammit, after the past few months of race-baiting gutter poltiics, I’m happy that Obama got re-elected; I’m happy that some of those snakes on the right got bounced out of Congress; I love that Elizabeth Warren was elected; and I’m going to bask in that for a while.

    You know, the obvious non-snarky question is this: why did he make this declaration now? Look, Dondero is an imbecile, but I would actually have slightly more respect for him had he done this a decade ago, or even a couple of years ago. If people who vote for Democrats are an existential threat to civilization, why does the outcome of this election change anything?

    One on my Facebook friends mentioned that 2 of her Republican Facebook friends unfriended her after the election. Which is just pathetic. Making political agreement a requirement to friendship is one thing: a principled, if hugely over-the-top, stand. Doing so after an election is pathetic and suggests that you are terrified of having someone point out to you that you were fundamentally wrong about the objective question of whether the statistical techniques used by most pollsters, and the meta-analysis of the same, was and is correct.

    @AA+ Bonds: The alternate reality is strong with an old high school friend of mine. We haven’t seen each other in 20 years, but we are friends on facebook. He is a hard-core Catholic and has adopted EVERY right wing position to go with his rabid anti-abortion position. Climate change a hoax? Check. Pro-guns? Check. Takers and makers? Check. And so on.

    He posts a lot and it is clear that nearly everyone he is friends with (with the exception of me it seems) thinks pretty much like he does. They were completely convinced that Romney was going to pull out a close win. Why I asked? The national tracking polls and a simmering desire among enough of the elecorate to get Obama out. What about Nate Silver? His stuff is a “liberal fairy tale” I was told. I gave them my prediction of 332 EV and 51% PV. They howled at me…

    Needless to say, they are in utter shock right now. Not even close to being out of the grief stage yet.

    The Republicans are still viable for popular vote wins, locally and nationally. But they are slipping into a semi permanent second fiddle in the electoral college.

    They can still win low turnout elections like 2010, but the POTUS future is leaving them behind. unless they field a superior candidate. But Unless they change their tone and policy substance for the new demographic reality in American, it will get steadily worse for them electorally.

    The only reason they have any power at all right now is insanely convoluted gerrymandering for House seats.

    Because they were making their big push for Gilded Age 2: Electric Boogaloo, and were defeated. Therefore, to them, the rabble are voting themselves bread and circuses.

    Sure, he now knows that the majority of the rabble are voting for … I don’t know, fascism or something. But had Romney won, the rabble that did vote for Obama would still pose a danger to America, right?

    The timing says it all to me: he’s a whiny-ass titty bitch for the ages. He can’t bear facing anyone who would give him shit about the outcome of the election.

    Derondo: “Go to Mexico for your medical treatment. Avoid all the red tape and bureaucracy.”

    Yeah, because Mexico is like totally libertarian – no bureaucracy and shit. There is, so I’ve heard, a druggist in Tiajuana who has a concoction that hasn’t passed through all of that fucking FDA red tape, Communist New England Journal of Medicine peer review, etc. that he’ll sell to Derondo if he gets cancer. Which, of course, I hope he never, ever contracts. Because I’m not an asshole. But if he does, I really wish him well shopping for a cure in Mexico which isn’t subject to all of that totalitarian bureaucracy and “red” – if you know what I mean – tape. Also, no reason to assume one couldn’t find the world’s best brain surgeons, unlike that Democraptic hellhole, New York City.

    Reading his responses, I have a terrible feeling that this guy desperately NEEDS brain surgery. ASAP.

    As I think Cole once said: “Peak Wingnut is a myth.”

    I do think it is quite revealing to see the real authoritarian/totalitarian face of libertarianism, and this guy’s choice to stay 17 year old boy forever.

    Again, never has John Rogers aphorism been more appropriate.

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    (As a digression, in defense of the book concerning Orcs, I reread it after reading the late Paul Fussell’s “The Great War and Modern Memory” and came to understand that it anything but a childish fantasy. http://greenbooks.theonering.n.....02_02.html“)

    Late to the party, but had to respond to his Steely Dan comment. Dumbass. The rw guitarist he’s talking about has to be ‘Skunk’ Baxter, but SD long ago whittled itself down to Fagen&Becker plus studio musicians, thought everybody knew that. But just to spoil his day a little further, lyric from 2000’s Two Against Nature song ‘Jack of Speed,’ where the narrator mourns an old friend apparently lost to meth:

    Sheila’s party, there’s a case in point/That right-wing hooey sure stunk up the joint
