KarmicDisaster: mrshowrules: YouAreItNoTagBacks: Unskewedpolls hasn't changed. I hope Dean Chambers is ok. I'm honestly worried about him and his family.

He will no doubt be ridiculed but violence should not be an issue. Certainly no one on the Left is pissed. Their all smoking pot and having mandatory gay sex today.


I mostly worry about the families of the extreme hate right wingers, they have to play along with nutty dad, but he could be a danger to them.


Anyone having dark thoughts should seek professional help. Mental illness is a serious problem. Some political junkies (right and left) actually do have issues that should be dealt with.

FeedTheCollapse: I'm kind of amused by the degree in which the Republicans were caught surprised by Obama's win. They didn't just think he'd lose, but they thought the EV count would be reversed in Romney's favor. Hell, even though I was disappointed as a Kerry supporter in 2004, I at least knew going in that the race was going to be close either way.


My sister said she was "stunned" that he won and by the margin he won by. Then of course she said she didn't understand how he could win when the past four years happened with our country in a giant shiatter. Mind you my sister has a great job, lives in a nice house with a two car garage and has it pretty good.

She is deep in the bubble.

keylock71: Delicious... as anticipated.

Not as good as all the whining coming from my "conservative" friends, though. Most of them are in the acceptance phase right now after freaking out last night.

It was the media's fault for calling the election too early for Obama, apparently... That swayed over two million Americans on the west coast not to vote for Romney. Seriously, this is what one of them is saying. ...Along with the usual biatching about the Electoral College, of course.


That is a seriously bizarre facebook exchange.

My Conservative friends are all still in resistance mode..

"We are SO SCREWED"..seems to be the general consensus.

I'm not at all. The media built this up as a tight race that can go either way, especially Fox News, when this was not the case in the slightest. Sure some of the swing states were tight, but not nearly enough to cause drastic concern or at the very least give Romney supporters hope for an upset.

I mean betting odds had Obama at 1/9 and Romney at 6. Those odds are insane if you truly think it was a toss up.

You want grief? Check out the "Words of Wisdom" E-mail our office received this morning... Keep in mind I'm the 'only blue' in this blood-red Texas small-business:

Because I know most of you are Republicans, and are probably still in shock after the events of last night, I thought it important that I offer a few words of "wisdom":

Even though the president we will have for the next four years is not considered pro-business, we, as a company and team, have already proven that we can excel in such an environment. What we need to do now is leave the gloom and doom behind us, and focus even harder on the things we can control. Things like the commitment, effort, diligence and pride we put in the work we do every day. These are the things that got us where we are, and these are the same things that will continue to make us successful through the next four years (and beyond) regardless of what the macro economy does. In closing, I would say good luck, but luck has nothing to do with it. We make our own luck by the hard work we put into our lives, families and careers...we just need to keep working hard, albeit maybe a little harder than before...


DELICIOUS!

I don't really buy the horserace narrative, especially considering that Obama did win by a smaller margin, both in the popular vote and electoral vote. I think the delusions of what they think Obama is contrasted starkly to the reality of how Obama actually governed. I think they made the mistake of thinking everyone else thought the same thing despite polling indicating otherwise. I think this election was very much a public display of Republicans trying to exorcise the utter failure of the Bush years by trying to project those failures on Obama, and utterly failing to do so.

I think Bill Cunningham from 700WLW, Cincinnati's version of Rush Limbaugh may kill himself. He promised he would quit radio if Obama is re-elected. I really hope he is good to his word. He sounded really close to parking the car in the garage while it's running around 11:30 last night.

YouAreItNoTagBacks: Unskewedpolls hasn't changed. I hope Dean Chambers is ok.

Uh, you don't really read Chambers do you? Ten days ago he had Romney carrying all of the swing states, PLUS OR, MN, WI, MI and PA:
"Mitt Romney is elected the next president of the United States with 53.63 percent of the popular vote and 359 electoral votes"
Link

If he has a high school diploma they should take it away because he's not bright enough to count.

I'm bracing for the UN invasion of Texas, as predicted by Lubbock County Judge Tom Head back in August:

"I'm thinking the worst," Head told a local Fox affiliate. "Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we're not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we're talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy."
If Obama wins, Head intoned, he'll "hand over sovereignty of the United States to the U.N." and then call in United Nations troops to keep order.
"You know, the ones wearing the little blue beanies," he pointed out.
"I don't want 'em in Lubbock County. OK," he made clear. "So I'm going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say 'you're not coming in here.'"

this has nothing to do with my ill advised overconsumption of caipirinhas and pinot noir last night. Smallest margin of victory since Carter (and Bush but a negative margin of victory is undefined in this context). A win, not decisive. Giants beating the Bengals 35-28 is a win but it's not a decisive one. A win is a win is a win. There are different types of wins. Not sure why this is controversial.

I am predicting the future, by the way
