iaazathot: I observed on Fark a few times that Rush would be largely irrelevant in this election. Looks like I was right. I think we can see his sun setting in the West as it runs around the world to end up behind some dominican boy.
cchris_39: fusillade762: cchris_39: The politician who takes from Peter and gives to Paul will always have the enthusiastic support of Paul.You mean people will vote for their own economic interests?!?The keys to your economic interests are not in my ass pocket, sorry.
mobile_home_refush: elchip: ATRDCI: Kuroshin: ATRDCI: gingerjet: Mugato: /is Florida still not decided? Republicans were off their game voting fraud-wiseRomney conceded defeat in Florida a few hours agoMore significantly Obama took the Cuban vote, which a Dem hasn't done in over 50 yearsCan thank the GOP's anti-immigrant rhetoric for that one.Well yeah, that is pretty much why Texas is slipping out of their fingers (well that plus the idiocy of Bush and Perry)It's not slipping very fast. Romney outperformed McCain in Texas.If Obama would have put in a ground game here in Texas ; I think we would have turned blue.
Vectron: Massa Damnata: I'm baffled by this willful blindness. Its quite simple. Most people aren't intolerant extremists. If you espouse such principles, you won't appeal to most people.It's a generation change. "Intolerant extremisim" is subjective. Every person is intolerant of something. The issues of the GOP (older white americans) would not have seemed intolerant a few decades ago.Gays getting married? Fuuuuuuu. That would have been crazy talk in the 1970's.Unchecked immigration (which the GOP is really pretty soft on) would have seemed crazy decades ago now. Unlimited immigration and the replacement of white america is a mainstream tenet of modern politics. It is seen as having no downside.30 years from now the civil rights issues may be rights for pedophiles and beastiality marriages.

Come to the Republican party! Everyone is welcome, we would love for new neighbors to attend!Please bring a dish to share with others. If you are unable to afford to bring anything, you should stop being a slacker and work harder to get the money. If you don't have a job, we will permit you pick off what's left on plates as you bus the tables.All faiths are welcome, even atheists can come! You don't mind if we accuse the host of the party across the street of being a Muslim though, do you? Because Islam is evil. So is evolution. And we hope you find Jesus soon or you're going to burn in Hell.People of all races are also encouraged to attend! Please disregard the group of guys in the corner that may scowl at you and bark out racial epithets... we'd publicly castigate them, but they brought dip. Can't have a party without the dips, amiright?Please bring your spouse, as long as your spouse is not the same gender as you.

Poorlytoldjoke: I like this logic. "If 3 million more people had voted republican we would have won"
Gwyrddu: Also, I love how Republicans think that if they just show off some token Hispanics they'll win the Spanish vote. It never occurs to them to actually do anything to actually help the Hispanic community, or any minority group for that matter, like passing the Dream act for example. Instead, they'll just assume that minorities are just as racist as they are.
LectertheChef: Oh for fark's sake, they were plenty motivated. These are the same people who are crying about the death of America by the evil usurper Marxist-Fascist-Muslim-Athiest-Christ-Killer-Usurper-In-Chief/Antichri st-Chicago-Thug-Empty-Suit-America-Hater-And-Destroyer-Of-Souls. Since before Obama was sworn in, they cast it as a battle of good and evil, and have been relentless in pushing that message. Their base turned out, it's just that their base is a bunch of racist old white people who are deathly afraid that some scary black man is farking their pretty little granddaughter doggystyle, while her boyfriend, who's your best friend's son, is forced to watch. But what really scares them about this scenario is that it gives them a raging hard on that makes Viagra seem obsolete.Anyways, I digress. The point I was trying to make was that their base turned out, it's just that their base isn't that big. If you know what I mean.
