I haven't even had time yet to be happy for Obama. I've spent the last two days laughing at the look on Karl's face when the election got called. It's the same face I hope he has when the pilot announces, "Sorry, folks, our regularly-scheduled Dulles-to-Chicago flight has been rerouted to The Hague."

The Operative: Do you know what your sin is, Karl?
Rove: I wonder if...
The Operative: It's pride. You know, in certain older civilized cultures, when men failed as entirely as you have, they would throw themselves on their swords.
Rove: Well, unfortunately, I forgot to bring a sword.
Rove: [as the Operative pulls out his sword] I would put that down right now if I were you.

I seriously cannot tell you how happy it makes me that these arrogant oligarchic human pubic lice spent hundreds of millions of dollars confident they could buy this election, believing their own god complex, and got zilch. Nadaski. Zero. Zippo. Not even a single added seat in Congress.

I tell you it renews my faith in humanity. Its like the movie Trading Places, but better and real. My only regret is that I can't be in the head of guys like Sheldon Adelson to bask in the rage and confusion at their little glass sphere being shattered completely.

KarmicDisaster: [public.dcexp.com image 640x464]

Here is what we got at the disaster house. This is what Romney's money purchased, it must cost, what a couple bucks per mailing in postage, printing, transportation and staff time. We got one single piece of Obama literature and one piece for Tammy Baldwin. There were also 2 to 6 robo calls per day from the Republicans for the last 4 months, and 2 total calls from the Dems, one of which was a real person. I know that the purpose of this stuff is to make people mad so that they get out and vote "Obama sent your job to China!" "Obama destroyed Medicare!" "Obama killed babies!" but it can certainly backfire if you don't do it right. A lot of money was blown.


It's funny, but when people get junk mail, they glance at it and throw it in the trash. They don't read them unless there are coupons. So, what I see in the pile of fliers you have on your deck, there are a lot of reasonably flattering pictures of Obama, a couple of Romney and a cute baby picture. Glance...trash. So, Obama got exposure in more of the postcards than Romney did.

Kinda like the postcard of the now-Maine senator by her opponents. The smart people voted for a social worker and the stupids voted for an orc rogue with long eyelashes and huge breasts.

Rich people didn't get to be rich by believing that "caveat emptor" applies to them.

Nicky's methods of betting weren't scientific, but they worked. When he won, he collected. When he lost, he told the bookies to go fark themselves. I mean, what were they going to do, muscle Nicky? Nicky was the muscle.

I watched Karl's meltdown live. The other hosts looked downright pleased to be watching him squirm. Chris Wallace was just openly shiatting on him. He tried his best to hedge with "I'm just urging prudence", but that was the look of a man that lied to his bookie and knew that Moose and Rocco were already on the way to collect.

The election outcome:

1. Adelson - extradited to China to face possible death penalty for bribery. Caught trying to escape to Israel and shot.

2. Rove - third arsehole ripped by mysterious texan.

3. Rupert - beats up his purchased gook wife, rubs his depends in her face, and then is handcuffed and sent to the UK to stand trial for the phone tap cover-up.

4. Trump - croaks out on the street and is ignored by people walking by.

5. Limbaugh - literally explodes.

He's going to be sweating his balls off for the rest of his life. I hope he has a real good security team to protect him from angry billionaires. Of course, he probably hires the same security firms that rich people do. Uh-oh.

Completely on the level, I have to thank Sheldon Adelson and the Brothers Koch for stimulating the economy so much through their shady but ultimately legal campaign financing shenanigans.
