Interesting recap, but I'm sure this will be featured prominently on The Daily Show and Colbert Report this evening. That's all the Faux News I care to watch.

Four more years of Barack HUSSEIN Obama, biatches. Deal with it.

Ed Henry, reporting stone-faced from Obama headquarters as it erupts in jubiliation: "The crowd is near pandemonium now, despite the fact that unemployment is hovering near 8 percent."

That's just asswipey.

Before the Rove meltdown, they kind of threw Romney under the bus and blamed him for not campaigning during Sandy. So the loss wasn't a reflection on the party, just the terrible candidate. Then i had to turn the channel. No more Fox for me until 2016.

Many local media stations, advertising agencies, production houses and talented creative staff thank you for your donations. We're so glad you poured millions into a losing investment!"

Anger:

Shortly before the race is called, Sarah Palin says an Obama victory would be a "catastrophic setback to our economy" and lashes out at the public: "I just cannot believe, though, that the majority of Americans would believe that incurring more debt is good for our economy. ... I cannot believe the majority of Americans would believe it's OK not to follow the Constitution and not have a budget."

The greatest public TV meltdown in history will be his legacy for years to come.

Meanwhile, his Koch boy and other contributors are outside his office anxious to rip him another arsehat.

Just dont get any better than this.

Particularly since he dragged in Wallace , the cute blodie anchor fool, and other Rupert stooges.

"wait, there's 62,500 votes waiting to be counted in Jim CVrow Couty Ohio. It's too early to call. Stop them Rupert, please stop them, stop them, stop them"

And Krauthummer (ugliest face in Amerika) blamed it all on Sandy.

Want to be relevant again, GOP? Do these things:

1. Cut out the cancer that is the Tea Party* and the extreme Religious Right.
2. Get practical on immigration*.
3. Embrace ending the War on Drugs like never before. It's Small Government(tm) that can make inroads with minorities*.
4. Stop pretending that the rich are unduly burdened by historically low taxes.

* - Vigorously marginalize any potentially racist elements, at all costs.

My favorite moment was when Greta Van Susteren was trying to get Sarah Palin to help with the spin:

Greta: "Clearly, this election does not give President Obama a mandate, don't you agree?"
Sarah: "Well, Greta, it's the win that counts"

That went on for 2-3 more iterations until Greta finally gave up and sent it back to the Fox funeral parlor.

Watching the dissonance between the Fox network back-room analysts and the on-air talent (side note: it was funny to hear Rachel Maddow call them "the talent" and I think the moniker should stick) was pretty funny. It's like the coach saying it's time to shake hands and go home while the cheerleaders keep yelling that the game isn't over.

I had Fox news on all night (while simultaneously following the various threads here). The blonde woman is really cute, and they called many states for Obama surprisingly early. It was hilarious to watch Rove try to find a way for Ohio, even after Fox themselves called it and even after the chick walked down the hall and interviewed their own statisticians who defended the call for Obama. I'll not be going back there today, because literally the FIRST WORD of the show after the election segment was "Benghazi", but I will probably go back in 2014 for the mid-terms.

CNN's coverage was ridiculous. They just refused to call states for Democrats when all republican precincts were in and Dem were still reporting, but Obama was up.

it got so bad that they ended up calling it for Obama when their map had only like 200 votes for him. And i'm sure they did it because Fox just called it.

The best part of the CNN campaign was them showing some major US cities celebrating... Chicago, New York, Boston.... KENYA!!!!!

This is pretty much exactly what I was thinking when watching Fox News (post-Ohio) last night.

The GOP needs to forcefully eject the social conservatives into a separate party. Yes, they will lose a lot of elections while waiting for the aging remnants to die off, but the divergent viewpoints that occupy the single political brain make it incapable of functioning properly in its current form.

CNN isn't partisan, they're just stupid. They just desperately wanted to keep giving out exciting updates so people wouldn't tune out or go to bed long after it was obvious Romney was being destroyed in every swing state.

Then the tone was like someone had died. Followed by the inevitable but ... but ... but no mandate.

As soon as NBC called it, I switched over to Fox News (they called it two minutes later). That was probably the most awkward half-hour I've ever seen. Megyn yelling "too close!" at a cameraman, and the head guys in the decision room smiling at her, while explaining how Romney just lost Ohio.

Priceless.

kudos for using "neo-conservative" correctly. Krauthammer is a neo-con. Every conservative ever in the world is not, necessarily


Indeed. IMHO, the Tea Party, Fundamentalist "Christians", and Neo-Conservatives have all helped to drag the Republican Party into the Abyss. As other FARKERs have said, it will take them years to climb out of this ( if ever )

It was pretty obvious that John King just couldn't understand why they weren't calling Florida. He kept pointing out that all the Republican areas had reported 100%, and that all of the outstanding votes were in heavily Democratic area. He was getting pretty frustrated sounding after a while.

For someone who only ever watches Fox News and is told how it was in the bag for Romney by Rove, Dick Morris, etc. I can only imagine the confusion as the results came in last night. Like some nightmare they couldn't wake from. Glorious.

And Karl Rove. Turd Blossom himself, purveyor of the long game for the Republican machine, forced to be very much in the moment and utterly small by trying to keep that false reality flickering for a few moments more as Ohio was being called for Obama. You lose! You get nothing! Good day, sir!

It was obvious how all the news sources were going to cover the election returns after the first hour. ABCNews simply refused to report anything from a battleground state except "it's too close to call". Then they would breathlessly report the solid red and blue states as if there was a surprise in any of them. Obviously the need to keep pushing the "horse race" theme continued right into the returns, until the numbers were too obvious to ignore any longer.

Everyone gets that this is good for Fox right? Fox, Glenn beck, Rachel Maddow, Bill Maher, O'Reilly, all of them use outrage as the fuel for their ratings which = more $$$ for them.

I bet the conservative political commentators deep, deep down in places they don't talk about were secretly hoping for an Obama victory and left political commentators were secretly hoping for an Romney win because it's easier to provide outrage when your party doesn't have a super majority.

I never got the hate on Fox, they found their niche with convective viewers because it's less about activism it's about the money, that's what makes the world go round.

As long as there is a market for biased information there is always be left and right biased media. If you really want to get rid of Fox, teach people that nothing is ever 100% right or wrong, republicans and democrats, unions, abortion, drug legalization... all have positives and negatives associated.


The only thing holding humanity back are Egos are so big that we buy into an idea so hard and want to be true so bad we forget that there is chance we could be wrong about everything we know and believe.

It's bad news for Fox. It further proves that they are facing the same gradual demographic extinction as the Republican Party that they are a part of.

Sure, their viewers will still be riled up and angry and tuning in to hear Hannity and O'Reilly rant. But Fox's bigger problem is the same as the GOP's - those viewers are older, whiter, maler, and more religious than the general population, and there are fewer and fewer of them each year.

Even better as Fox News not only called Ohio for Obama while Rove was ranting, but FN had more electoral votes shown for obama than the other networks. They had him at 290 while the others were still at 274.

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.

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'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.


it was a super tight race in terms of the popular vote

Jackson Herring: 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.


Yeah, I'm just going to let it go... He's a good guy, and usually fairly rational, but I think he's letting his emotions get the better of him this morning.

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'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.

That's one thing I don't understand; I have a serious disrespect of Fox News, but in 2008? Their election map both on their network and online were top of the line, several orders of magnitude better then the other networks.

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.

skullkrusher: CPennypacker: It doesn't matter if it was decisive. If it was it wouldn't have changed anything anyway. See Obama's "mandate" in 2008.

Obama had a mandate in 2008? That would have been a far better October Surprise than Trump's stupid offer


I'd say a 36% EV margin and a 7.2% popular vote margin is a decent enough of a gap to be considered a mandate. No candidate today is going to pull a Reagan or a Roosevelt

never had the Stone but I gotta try. I do enjoy the occasional IPA. Woodchuck is solid alcoholic apple juice

I don't understand how they managed such a huge step backwards. Say what you will about Fox's ethics, their competency and production values have always been high; their 2008 website coverage was incredible. Curious as to what happened to all the people who were responsible for that, as they've obviously still not with the company.

Anything by Stone has been top notch. Same guys who do Arrogant Bastard Ale.

Damn shame that it can be a bit pricey, though. Usually runs 12-15 a six pack here in Texas. Local alcohol chain, Specs, has it on sale this week for 9.99 for a six pack or 9.99 for a four pack of their higher end / special brew lines. Dropped 100+ yesterday on their products due to this. :0

Apparently, he's still drunk. I'll be sure to send him a $5 starbucks card so he can get the smallest coffee ever and recoup.

I already went to Starfarkers and it didn't help. Ordered some Thai food food for lunch. Hopefully that does the trick

ManateeGag: now, how many CEOs are going to lay off their entire company just to stick it to Obama?


None.

Rumor is there was a bit of pent up demand that is going to surge forward in the coming months.

People splurged on Halloween this year. They are feeling better about the economy. Christmas will put it over the top.

Can't stand the markup at bars.

When I turned 21 friends took me out to a place just off campus, PK Pizza. This being a college down, every place on main street is a bar/grill/restaurant and most of them had very good food. Waitress came up, rattled out their current alcohol specials, and at the end "Oh, and our main beer special tonight is bottles of Sam Adams for $2.50 a bottle." And I thought to myself, "Wait, isn't Sam Adams currently $5.59 a six pack at Kroger? How the fark is tripling the price a farking special? You whore!"

Not seriously, blues, folk, punk, bluegrass and the occasional hip hop and no.

Guess it won't work out but I'll admire your drinking tastes nonetheless. Nice to know there's another one out there.

Can't agree. Democrats seem to have had a solid lock on that since 1996.

mgshamster: keylock71: Along with the usual biatching about the Electoral College, of course.

This is odd. Traditionally, dems biatch about the EC, and repubs defend it.

Despite all that, Obama still won the popular vote.


The EC is dumb, the only state that mattered was Ohio, the minute they called it the election was over. Most of the central time zone was still counting (1% reporting) and the election was over. That is sad.

Graduated in 2001, department of mining and minerals engineering.

Department of electrical and computer engineering myself (class of 2003, but I was on the 5 yr plan).

I was always a fan of River Mill burgers, and I sure as fark miss PKs. I was last there in 2010 and Slouvaki's was crap. Maybe I just had a bad gyro but I threw it out after a couple bites.

/btw how the heck do you still have your vt account?

IIRC, the old man running Souvlakis retired in the early 2000's. Shame, their gyros were damn awesome. :(

Virginia Tech email address are good for life. They did that change in 1999 or 2000.

squidgod2000: skullkrusher: CPennypacker: I couldn't take it last night. I was switching like mad. CNN had the cool map. FOX news was like a comedy routine. MSNBC had Rachel. Click, click, click!

Fox's graphics were FOOKED. I was going between MSNBC and FNC and I literally had no idea what was going on when I watched Fox. It wasn't a deliberate propaganda thing or anything, they just couldn't get their shiat together in terms of displaying info

This was one of the first things I posted on FB about the election last night. NBC News/MSNBC looked professional while Fox News looked totally amateur. Absolutely no information hierarchy, designed exclusively for standard-def and using dated, 90's style design (cut corners, bevels, etc).


They also had all those laptops and folders and looked totally messy and unprofessional too.

Uncle Bester: Vegan Meat Popsicle: Oh, and one other beautiful thing.

The right spent $1,000,000,000 trying to force this three-legged horse across the finish line and untold millions more on creating a firewall against Obama in the event he won and they. Got. NOTHING. THEY LOSE. FARK OFF, SIRS.

Not only that but they got killed in many down ticket races especially here in MN, rep Corndog Deepthroat's narrow victory notwithstanding.
Majority Dems in state house and senate for the first time in decades and both derpy constitutional amendments shot down.


Imagine how many millions fewer votes Romney would have received had they not spent billions of PAC $$.

star_topology: 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!
