somedude210: When you wake up to hearing that the American people have decided against rape as a political policy, that working classes should be represented, that prohibition is stupid, that equality should be for all people regardless and that we have another 4 years of an improving, worthwhile growth as a nation; it renews your faith in the people and this country. It's morning in America and I couldn't be happier.

Good morning, America. I missed you.


It's like waking up to you surprise oral sex, isn't it?.

Mentat: The only thing that saved the GOP last night was redistricting.


I don't disagree, but it cut both ways. In IL they lost 3 seats pretty much due to gerrymandering.

As for the rape Senators, I think from now on GOP candidates will be fitted with a shock collar around their nuts as a condition of getting party support, and if they utter the word "rape" it will go off for like 30 seconds of excruciating pain.

I really wanted a trifecta: Obama, Penzone and Carmona. I got one. I am completely not surprised about the others. Just disappointed.


Yeah, that's the sad part of it all. I guess Arpaio is like a weed that just won't die, isn't it?.

On the contrary. With the Tea Party pretty much defanged, her presence will continue to serve up useful sound bites to remind people of why they were a terrible idea.

Minnesota is a weird farking state. Urban St. Paul/Minneapolis is dark, dark blue. Rural Minnesota is light blue. Sandwhiched between them is suburbia St. Paul, so deep red they keep re-electing a Congresswoman too DERP for even Iowa GOP Primary voters to stomach.


Cravaack was ousted and MN DFL took back both State Senate and House handedly. Just can't quite get rid of Bachmann. Being able to outspend your opponent 12 to 1 (outside money, thank you citizen's united) doesn't hurt.

The Congress' mean intelligence just rose about 20 IQ points with the Bill Foster win. A particle physicist who started up a company that sells most of the theatre lighting in the US.

Get this man on all congressional science advisory boards, ASAP.

You think any of the people who voted for free stuff yesterday would have been dissuaded by Gingrich successfully painting Obama as a communist?

Most people vote for whoever promises free stuff, no matter what. But as ye reap, so shall ye sow. Meanwhile, maybe I can get one of those free Obama "pho's" ...

schaef21
Yes indeed. So much talk here on FR is about how to strategize, who to nominate in 2016, and so on. This is all useless. American needs repentance. Polls show Obama one because single women wanted free abortion and free birth control. There is only one reason single women would want those things: They are rejecting God's moral will and going headlong into fornication and promiscuity, and they want someone else to pay for the consequences.

If America is not brought to repentance in sackcloth and ashes, it doesn't matter who we nominate or what political strategies we pursue. Truth cannot win.

Even so, come Lord Jesus.

Bachmann (not a freshman) narrowly won.
Allen West lost to Patrick Murphy.

Bobby Schilling lost to Cheri Bustos.
Quico Conseco lost to Pete Gallego.
Blake Farenthold won.
Jeff Denman won (narrowly).
Cory Gardner won.
Sandy Adams I believe is gone.
Rich Nugent is back.
Steve Southerland narrowly won.

So...tea party tards are still around, but not as many.

lemurs: Citrate1007: Bachmann eked out a win.........farking harpy.

Bachmann had a massive cash advantage in a very red district and eked out a win by 3,937 votes out of more than 355,000. A few more wins like it and the GOP is lost.


Actually this is a good thing. This proved that the race is competitive, and I suspect the next person to run will finally get the DNC cash they need to fight.

Affirmative. She won my county, but lost to the north and west, which was pretty unexpected...

I took a look...

It's much worse when they feign intelligence.

We do not understand why people would choose so, but perhaps we do not have to understand why they did it. That they did it is enough to predict what the consequence will be and also to infer they discounted that consequence as irrelevant to the choosing.
Very apropos.

The tea party butthurt that exploded on my facebook wall over this one just makes me really, ridiculously, incredibly happy. Even the fact that one of my tea party facebook friends went right to my sexual orientation as an attack doesn't make me mad, it just makes the whole thing more deliciously lulzy. Oh, and my parents should be ashamed of me and I clearly don't care about how they feel because I obviously went all the way to Asia to get away from them.

It's beautiful.
 
2012-11-07 11:36:54 AM  
Im still a registered R but would become an I if not for closed primaries here. Allen West got redistricted here. I wrote in a vote because West is a blowhard and Murphy is a kid who has no experience. I guess that was my protest vote against West. The farkin superPacs dumped 20 mil between them for this seat. It was a nasty race. Both of them had to rent houses in this district just so they could say they lived here.

/I'm glad West lost but I'm not a fan of Murphy either. It is to bad we couldn't have had a good local candidate emerge.
//voted a mixed ticket over all
///read a local article saying west stayed in the back room the whole time and supposedly left around midnight without even addressing his supporters who were at his party. Tells you a bit about the kind of guy he is.

It was just pointed out to me that one of the counties that Bachmann represents has the highest suicide rate for gay kids in the USA.

Elections have ALL TYPES of consequences.

I'm also promoting something too... every time we mention Bachmann we mention that she represents the dumbest congressional district in the USA. Every time. Her constituents (or slightly over 50% of them) are just plain stupid.

For now. With no national ticket to worry about, the Democratic Party can concentrate on these clowns in 2014. Bachmann's race was really close, so she's vulnerable.


And I look forward to donating to anyone who runs against her.

You know what would be great if we could get Allen West to run in her District.

Spent a bit of time soaking up the Freeper fury last night.

There was something soul-cleansing about watching these people who subsist entirely on rage and fear, completely blind to objective reality suddenly getting slapped in the face by that aforementioned reality.

But I learned something: They're not really stupid at all. They're just stubbornly defiant of reality.

I saw numerous posts in threads like 'how the fark did this happen???' where people simply posted:

"There's more of them than there is of us."

Morose and spiteful, but simply right. They understand that they're dying out.

The fact that they grasp their inevitable fate to dwindle to an insignificant handful, a political joke and a shameful footnote in history books to come...The fact that they 'know' it, well, that just makes it all the more delicious to read.

They bought it, yes, but the outcome was not the one they wanted.

Will be there a backlash? Of course, better be ready for a surge of the Tea Party on steroids (older, angrier, people), Fox News will attack like the cornered rat that it is now, and the Kochs and Bankers that have invested so much in a GOP victory will be ruthless in buying any Democrat they can get their hands on.

So, I redirect to you to this link.

Esc7: Allen West was unhinged. He accused Democratic Congresspeople of being literally card-carrying communists. Like that even happens nowadays.


Yeah we all standardized on ass tattoos in the 70's.
