The Iconoclast: GAT_00: Don't expect the GOP for a second to recognize that the voters picked the Democrats. They're going to go further to the right and become even more intransigent if they can.

There will be no movement to end the Bush tax cuts for the rich so they will expire for everyone. The fiscal cliff will end with the automatic cuts. And we still have a farm bill that will never get passed, Medicare payments to doctors which will never get passed and we hit a deficit ceiling in March.

The GOP is going to block every single one of those, mark my words.

I would think that if they try this they will be slaughtered in the mid-terms.


If they knew how to run a political party then they would currently be in charge of the White House and the Senate.

they facefarked themselves with their own dick.

Huh. I thought she'd go with "I was right!"

"If you don't run Chris Christie, Romney will be the nominee and we'll lose."
- Ann Coulter

Guess she's just a terrible person.

That's hysterical considering she was talking shiat about Christie on Maher the other night.

"Any way the wind bloooooows..."


Well.. it's a reflection of the major selfishness the people on the extreme feel. She's fine with people suffering as long as it reflects her world view. That's not only a political idiot, that's a bad person too.

I thought that gerp was just a myth. It's kinda exciting to think that it might be real.


Actually it is very frightening. Gerp can twist a man inside-out. May God help us all...

Grungehamster: Amazing what you will believe when you're getting paid to spout it.


That is also Krauthammer's problem. He's a cynical asshole, but he's not stupid. He went to Harvard Medical School. He was a Mondale type of conservative (pro-choice, fairly secular in his beliefs) but apparently you can't be on the FOX News payroll unless you're a full-blown Neocon.

Lundah: I tuned in to Fox News just long enough to catch his little "as a psychiatrist I'll write anyone who asks a prescription" comment, which tells me he's just planning to spend the next 4 years heavily medicated. I guess he got started on that before writing this article.


I saw that and chuckled.

But the best was when the Fox News blonde anchor marched down to their results desk to argue with them about the Ohio results and calling the election for Obama. The cherry on top of that was Karl Rove's pouting.

Krauthammer is one of the few guys who makes me want to just walk up to him, tip over his wheelchair and yell "BOOTSTRAP MOTHERfarkER" right in his stupid monkey face as he struggles to right himself.

lennavan: Carn: Zerochance: No mandate? Even for Chuck, that's a stretch. Even the most optimistic of us libs thought Obama would lose the popular vote.

Not me. In Silver we trust.

Yeah same here. I predicted Obama would lose the popular vote because I wanted him to, I didn't actually think he would. For the popular vote, my money was on Obama but my hopes were on Romney. My Gore v Bush wound needs GOP tears to help close it.


I was too scared to call it for Romney and then they'd steal OH and VA and FL. I was also thinking Obama would win FL but I thought that might be a bit bold so I went with 303 so I won't win the prize. I think I was pretty close with my prediction of 1% for potato though.

Weaver95: jst3p: Weaver95: aug3: Limbaugh is saying that if the Republicans would just run on conservative principles they could easily win.

among other things, yes.

I am listening today but I don't usually. Does he always talk about Santa Clause this much?

his theme today is that Obama voters (or democrats in general) are weak minded lazy rape happy self mutilating cannibals who are only out for themselves and need to be controlled for their OWN GOOD. of course the rape happy Ayn Rand Christian John Galt Republicans are greedy but it's for Jesus so it's totally cool and stuff. middle class democrats being greedy = bad. GOP christians being greedy = good.


Honesty Weaver thanks for the updates. I used to do a "Hate Radio Day" when I would make myself listen to Rush but I haven't done that in a while. It just got too herp derpy for me. Maybe I'll have a hate radio day today.

On a different note, how can democrats be lazy and rape happy self mutilating cannibals? I imagine that rape is a lot of work.

I have to admit, I bought into the horse race narrative. During the beginning of the republican primary I thought that Obama would win, not as handily as in '08, but he'd win a clear victory.

Over the past few weeks I really started to believe Romney had a pretty decent shot. I'm pretty surprised to see Obama also carry the popular vote.


I can't blame you. I didn't believe it per se, but it did scare the crap out of me and caused me to donate more money and tell anyone I could to go vote.
 
2012-11-07 02:04:59 PM

Grungehamster: The best is Dick Morris. He went into last night predicting Romney would win 325 to 213, and he called this potential result a landslide victory. Now he's written his review of the election in what looks like a 332 to 206 result (Obama is ahead in Florida with most of the outstanding vote in Miami-Dade), and he categorizes it as Obama pulling off a squeaker.

Amazing what you will believe when you're getting paid to spout it.


Andrew Sullivan has a chronological order of all of Morris' tweets from last night as the poll results come in.
It's pretty hilarious. Reminds me of watching people spin plates on the Johnny Carson show when I was a kid.

I wonder what the cutoff is for a mandate? And if a president falls short of this number, are we all supposed to just ignore him and stall our society for another 4 years? This sounds like the new round of the Republican "NO" strategy. Great repubs, because that worked out so well for you yesterday.

Not going to happen. They are the rightful heirs to Gods Kingdom the USofA and they have sacrificed too much and compromised their own integrity too far to turn back now. Obviously Jesus is displeased because they did not do enough to put women in their place.

i'm scanning channels now, and skimming various GOP blogs and whatnot. trying to get a feel for what the Republican derp is going to be today.

I am actually looking forward to the RL show. Today might be the day he strokes out or has a massive heart attack. I wanna catch that piece of history.


I think RL is as unkillable as Cheney.

Drexl's Eye: So what would a real mandate look like? Krauthammer helpfully explained on Fox News Sunday the weekend after President Bush was reelected in 2004:

I think it was a huge issue that the president was weak in his first term. He had less of the power and strength and capital, as he speaks of, than he does today. And now that he's been elected with a large majority, or a significant majority, and with a mandate, I think part of that mandate is to get the right judges, by his likes.

Bush won with 286 electoral votes to John Kerry's 252, and with a 2.4 percent margin in the popular vote. Obama currently has 303 electoral votes to Romney's 206, and he's likely to add to that the 29 votes from Florida, which hasn't been called yet, for a grand total of 332.


Wait, what are you saying?! Krauthammer's some kind of unprincipled hack?! SAY IT AIN'T SO.

The Freepers are fun today. This is being used to rally the troops:

"I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!" From the movie 'The Return of the King'

Obama is Sauron, I guess, except that when Karl Rove bit off Mitt Romney's finger, he only found a Ring Pop.

Her biggest gripe is that he had the audacity to remind the GOP that he won the election. I'm pretty sure that's normal playing from a place of strength in negotiations. I'm kind of pissed the Dem guy didn't come back with McConnell's statement that the GOP's #1 goal was to make him a one-term president.

A blog is already compiling the best bits of derp in right-wing blogs. So far here's my favorite:

It's time for the people who make this country work to put up or shut up. It's time to make the deadbeats feel some pain IMHO.

1) Minimize your spending. Take your savings out of the economy and hide it as best as you can.
2) In the same vein, take as much of your economic activity to the black market / cash only market as you can.
3) If you are thinking about closing your business down, go ahead
4) If you are keeping your business running, take a strong look at who you are hiring and firing (ie consider firing minorities and single women)
5) If you are a doctor begin limiting your patients or only take cash payments.
6) If you produce food (farmers) consider reducing your output to drive up prices and help Michelle O. with her fight on fat.
7)Do not associate, coach, elevate, or help in any way those who trend Democrat. This includes charities or even your own family.
8)If you are working hard to try and get ahead. Stop - enjoy your life and family while you still can.
9) Do not associate with liberal bastions such as schools, colleges, and the entertainment industry. Consider homeschooling your kids.
10) Move to a red state and start pushing for secession.
11) Military members near retirement should retire; make the Democrats fight the next war.

Cythraul: DamnYankees: Sybarite: The Republicans are in control of the House, probably a little bit stronger. They are not going to budge. There's no way after holding out on Obama for two years they're going to cave in

Although I think the word "compromise" would be a better choice, I have no doubt he's right about this. They are now going to dig their heels in even harder.

I think this is going to be genuinely interesting. Their strategic decision to block Obama on everything COMPLETELY FAILED. Mitch McConnel should step down as leader, since he completely failed in his goal. There's just no reason for them to keep this up now.

I guess we'll find out now if this was merely a strategic play by them to keep Obama to one term, or whether its a sincere ideological belief.

I'm thinking it's going to be the latter.


Yeah... the only thing the GOP has been consistent about in the last 2-4 years is learning the wrong lessons. The only time they aren't hypocrites is when the opinion is reprehensible. It's why they went from "abortion's wrong" to "rape babies are a gift from god." And it is why they will turn the obstruction up to ever more unbelievable levels until somebody with half a brain and a modicum of sanity finds the reigns.

He kind of has to. The Republicans control the House, and we need to get the budget under control. I'd love to see dropping the Bush Tax Cuts in exchange for some deep cuts that the Repubs want. That's real compromise. Otherwise, nothing will change. And the Repubs don't need to be hyperfocused on making Obama a one term president anymore, so maybe they'll grow the fark up a little bit.

/Is it still possible for me to be this naive? Guess so.

Idiots like Rove and Krauthammer should be kicked off tv for how wrong they were.


lennavan: jst3p: Zerochance: jst3p: Carth: American's should be up in arms for the bullshiat "horse race" the media sold.

If it motivated people to vote I am OK with it.

I'm not. Yes, it motivated people to vote which caused my guy to win, but that's not the media's job. They're supposed to report and fact-check. They didn't do either. Not a goddamn bit.

They haven't for a very long time, news has been a sham for decades. At least in this case there was a positive byproduct.

The only problem I have with it is the usage of the word news. I got no beef with what the media wants to do. But I think we all agree, it's not news, it's entertainment. By all means, pretend the race is close even though all facts say otherwise. But then you shouldn't get to call yourself news.


I agree. We need to hold our "journalists" to higher standards. They are supposed to be the watchdogs of our society. How do we go about getting them to do their job?

I don't know how the studio-to-studio transmission works, but I'd like to think that Dick sees a full-body shot of Megan in his monitor. She's sitting in her chair, wearing a short skirt, with bare legs and open-toed pumps. Her feet don't quite reach the floor, and she's letting one shoe slooooowly slip down, exposing her smooth arches, until it's just about to fall off, and then she crunches her toes, snapping the shoe back up with a slap against her bare foot. She repeats this over and over. Dick is trying furiously to remember what spin he's putting on the numbers, but oh sweet jesus there she goes again, just another inch and he'd see her whole foot, but no. SNAP. Up goes the shoe again. What was he talking about? Florida. Yeah, that's right, see, only 24% of the precincts are reporting in and oh my god there it goes again, look at those toes, oh how good they'd taste...

One thing's for sure; after the "fiscal cliff" hits, it will be highly amusing to watch the party of "fiscal responsibility" argue in favor of deliberately unbalancing the budget and taking on more debt to pay for upper-income tax cuts and more military spending.

Especially since the Dems up for reelection next time vastly outnumber the Repubs. We may very well lose the Senate next time. However, with a 4 or 5 man buffer, it might be okay, if the economy is doing better, which it probably will.
In 2016, the Tea Baggers will go up for reelection and it should be a very good year for us.

Wolf brings a very valuable and level headed stance to CNN, keeping them on an even keel and preventing partisan calls of debate victories. TBH he's possibly my favorite pundit on CNN, possibly on all the networks even.

eddiesocket: We may very well lose the Senate next time.


That's been a real possibility every election since 2006, and it hasn't materialized yet. Thank you, Tea Party!

W. Blitzer: PanicMan: theteacher: My ultra-conservative friend came in saying he isn't listening to the talking heads anymore. Krauthummer is one of them

He also said that CNN's coverage was better than Faux's.

CNN was surprisingly mostly not suck. If they get rid of Wolf Blitzer it might be watchable.

Let's not be hasty here!

Wolf brings a very valuable and level headed stance to CNN, keeping them on an even keel and preventing partisan calls of debate victories. TBH he's possibly my favorite pundit on CNN, possibly on all the networks even.


Plus he's super sexy

eddiesocket: He kind of has to. The Republicans control the House, and we need to get the budget under control. I'd love to see dropping the Bush Tax Cuts in exchange for some deep cuts that the Repubs want


Let the cuts expire and draft new ones that target the middle class. Then use the bully pulpit to pass them.

CygnusDarius: Carn: He threw in a lot of liberal code words last night, as well as made it perfectly clear the Republicans would get one chance to immediately come to the table or they are going to learn thing or two about brass knuckles.

Let's hope that's true, because the republicans in the house will fight tooth and nail, and there's nothing more dangerous than a cornered rat.


Boehner actually sounds like he understands his predicament (cooperate or die). McConnell is the one who will stick to his intransigence no matter what, but if King leads them to change the filibuster to be less ridiculous he might be muted. Of course, Cantor and the teahadists are still strong in the House so you're right. I truly think they wasted all their political capital at the worst time. They tried to convince everyone that liberal policies would never let our economy recover. During the next four years, we're going to see them pay off in spades. They can either try to join the party or set themselves up for complete slaughter in 2016. I'm ok with either.

You know, if guys like Cabbage Mallet weren't so completely insane and invested in partisan nonsense, they'd be celebrating. The right won. Thanks to liberals' lack of strong convictions on anything but social issues and the Dems being able to hold up the Republicans as bogeymen, the right-wing agenda is quite simply the only game in town. Obama is further right, in the aggregate, than any president since Hoover. And as long as centrist liberals continue to fight harder against the left than they do against the right, this trend right will continue.
