A friend of a friend was a Cabela's north of Dallas over the weekend and, according to the guy at the gun counter, it was Gunday Sunday, and the place had been packed ever since Wednesday.

Apparently people are stocking up on firearms, just so the U.N. can take them away any moment.

National Review's Jonah Goldberg attacked statistician Nate Silver's prediction that Obama would win, well, all the states he turned out to win. "The truth is that any statistician can build a model," sniffed Goldberg, perhaps thinking of the scale-model Munsters car he built in grad school.

If only married people voted, Romney would have won in a landslide. If only married religious people voted, you'd need a word that means something much bigger than landslide. Obviously, Obama got some votes from the married and the religious (such people can marry their interests to the state, too), but as a generalization, the Obama coalition heavily depends on people who do not see family or religion as rival or superior sources of material aid or moral authority.

Go fart on a dick, Jonah Goldberg.

The problem with the current crazypants trajectory of the GOP is that it drags the whole system to the right. Obama, for example, is more conservative in many respects than Richard Nixon.

Imagine Obama proposing a new massive, sprawling government bureaucracy that focuses on hippie environmental issues, or opening relations with a major communist power.

The result is issues important to the real left get drowned out by the sensationalist noise coming from the far right.

It does make me wonder what they think their policies offer to the average voter. It seems as if the Republicans knew this presidential election had to be won. They did as much vote suppression as possible and still lost.

The battleground states, whose electoral vote decided the election (including winning margin) were:
Wisconsin (Obama +7%)
Nevada (Obama +7%)
New Hampshire (Obama +6%)
Iowa (Obama +6%)
Colorado (Obama +5%)

Wisconsin and Iowa will likely remain battleground states in the next two presidential elections due to the large number of working class white males. That's 16 electoral votes Romney lost due to "Let Detroit go bankrupt." Those states could swing back red.

On the other hand, New Hampshire, Nevada and Colorado are harbingers of times to come. Nevada and Colorado have rapidly increasing Latino populations. Colorado's Latino population has grown 42 percent in 12 years, helping to transform once-reliable Republican areas into swing counties now leaning toward Democrats. Add Florida's 29 electoral votes due to a lot of extremely angry Black and Latino voters who understand their voting rights were being screwed over by Republicans in 2012 and you don't see much hope for a party whose one consistent message has been "more money for the rich."

Those changing demographics are going to force BOTH parties to change. The problem is, the Democrats seem far more open to change, as noted with Obama becoming the first sitting President to state that homosexuals ought to be allowed to marry, and subsequently the first President elected after making such a statement. He himself stated that his position had 'evolved'. Now maybe he did some sincere soul searching, or maybe his pollsters think that was to his political advantage to say, either way the end result is the same. To be fair, the GOP bandwagon APPEARS to be reconsidering their stance on immigration and other issues that effect Latino voters, only time will tell if they follow through with that, or even if they do if they will win back anyone.

I suspect Virginia could be swung back red, IF the GOP give up the pants-on-head crazy levels of conservatism; stop trying to push so much to the insane hard right on abortion, but fight hard to preserve the status quo on it a little longer. That might be enough for Ohio and Florida, also. The short-term difficulty with this approach would seem to be that the crazies appear unwilling to back down the slightest from abject ideological purity.

Colorado was the "tipping point" state. This is the problem for the Republicans going forward. Even if Romney had won Virginia AND Ohio AND Florida, given his other victories, he would have lost the election.

The crazies gave the Republicans most of their state victories in 2012. Republicans can't give up on their Christian right stands on pro-choice, civil rights, and other socially conservative policies. The Republicans are not financially conservative. They really, really want tax cuts for the rich, no matter what it does to the deficit. How is that financial conservatism? For better or worse Republicans are the socially conservative party.

Were the Republicans to abandon abject ideological purity, they would lose to the next George Wallace who could again come from the Democratic party. If they abandon tax cuts for the rich, they lose their multinational corporations support. If they abandon invading on Iran, they lose their corporate support.

If I were a Republican, I would point out the only choice is to abandon the Christian right agenda, abandon the neo-con agenda, abandon the trickle-down corporate agenda and return to being the party of financial conservatism. Period.

"This isn't the country it used to be." = "There sure are a lot of n*ggers."
"generations who attended public school" = "n*ggers"
"We have to change direction." = "More white people need to procreate."
"Take our country back." = "Take our country back from the n*ggers."
"Romney would have one if only X had voted." = "We should take the vote away from everyone but X. Especially n*ggers."
"Americans chose socialism" = "n*ggers like free stuff."

I don't know how you trudge through all that shiat. you're braver than I.

so they're evolving from it's everyone's fault but ours, to it's everyone's fault and we were tricked.
these guys keep tugging each others bootstraps like this they might just pull 'em off.

you should have heard LImbaugh just a few moments ago - he actually complained that 'the media' was mean to Romney and that everyone on the left should be ashamed of themselves for destroying Romney's good character.

um...remember sandra fluke? 'cause the rest of us do.

The underlying economic indicators were very bad for an incumbant. The right had it set in their mind that Obama would fail to be reelected and they could get their tax cuts. Now fartbongo is still in office and he made it clear he wants the wealthiest to pay a little bit more. This is unacceptable because a small percentage of the right will have to pay more and that small percentage has convincingly lied to the rest in convincing them that this will be bad for the poor and middle class as well. And abortion because Jesus.

I think four years of anti-Obama fox propaganda did it.

They've been going to chicken little classes for Obama's entire term preparing for the specter of an Obama second term. The sky is falling!!!

no, the GOP mantra seems to be 'Romney was a good, honorable guy who just got ambushed by that mean old nasty Obama feller'.

Jackson Herring: If only married people voted, Romney would have won in a landslide. If only married religious people voted, you'd need a word that means something much bigger than landslide. Obviously, Obama got some votes from the married and the religious (such people can marry their interests to the state, too), but as a generalization, the Obama coalition heavily depends on people who do not see family or religion as rival or superior sources of material aid or moral authority.


And its this kind of commentary I cannot understand. The white demographic is shrinking, especially the white, old, Christian male section of the demographic, and is beginning to reach a point where securing this demographic will not ensure an election victory. Do these people honestly believe there's some "hidden" pocket of white male Christians that will rain forth from the heavens on an election day & save the day by not voting for the black blah guy? I thought the works of Sinclair Lewis were supposed to be fiction with societal commentary, not an instructional guide.

A side story: my husband's cousin who is a full-fledged Christian fundie teabagger, posted on facebook regarding an earthquake that occurred in Kentucky -- M4.3 near Whitesburg. The comments on the post all said the same thing: "it was the beginning of the end of times." This was followed by a ton of "amen"s. I'm sitting here thinking that if God were to smite mankind, I think he would use more effective and deadlier natural disasters than a meager M4.3 earthquake.

I'm out of bottles. I'm having to use my rain barrels to catch the sweet, sweet tears of neoconservative and religious zealot rage.

It warms my heart to watch the GOP become even more extremist as a result of the election, as if they lost because they were somehow "weak" on their hate - their bigotry, their misogyny, their racism, their nationalism - and that, if they could've just doubled down on it, they would've won. It's weird - it's as if they believe that, if they would've only had more faith in rich white Christian men, then they could've convinced the poor, the people of color, the godless, and the women what was right and just.

They don't understand why they lost and, just as importantly, have no useful data from which to draw, because they don't trust data not provided by their own biased sources. The party's own moderates are heretics that must be purged, and everyone else are heathens, suitable only for the book or the sword.

That may be part of it, but the real difference is in 2008 we hadn't heard 4 years of solid coverage about how Obama was actively destroying America. Last time we screwed up as a nation and voted for the liberal blark guy, This was unfortunate, but forgivable. This time we voted for a well known enemy of the state with a 4 year record of never doing anything right ever while the economy collapsed upwards, unemployment skyrocketed downward, and the stock market failed by doubling in value.

So he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something.

His ass.

Five long years, he wore this +1... up his ass. Then he died of dysentery, he gave me the +1. I hid this uncomfortable hunk of +1 up my ass two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, ignatius_crumbcake, I give the +1 to you.

GAT_00: It's intriguing. They recognize there is a problem, and then intentionally veer away from any logical solution.


There's a certain number of people in this country who are just beyond all hope of reasoning. If they somehow get it into their brains that pants are to be worn on their head, they will begin to do so, and all attempts to tell them otherwise are met with violent reactions, because one thing in common with these people is that proving them wrong only pisses them off and convinces them that they are more right than they thought they were in the first place. Like one of those Chinese finger-traps; the more you try to pull your finger out, the more force they apply and lock your fingers down even more.

An unfortunate side effect of their madness is that it turns off anyone they know. They scare away the rational people from their party, and even begin to kick some out as well. The Republican party saw a loss of 2% of the US population after the 2010 election, which is actually staggeringly large when you think about it. They went from 29% to 27%, which is roughly a decrease in party size of about 7% in just one year (2010 to 2011).


The party is doomed if they don't reign in the pants-on-head nutters.

I guess this is part of the reason, but the fact remains that, even in 2008 there was this massive vitriol against Obama; anyone remember the guy with the monkey? And how they only called him Obama Huseen, or B. Hussen Obama instead of Barack Obama? It surprises me that they haven't stormed Fox News and disemboweled Sean Hannitty on live air.

markie_farkie: A friend of a friend was a Cabela's north of Dallas over the weekend and, according to the guy at the gun counter, it was Gunday Sunday, and the place had been packed ever since Wednesday.

Apparently people are stocking up on firearms, just so the U.N. can take them away any moment.


*SIGH*


Yeah, I'm baffled by that. My stepfather, who is an otherwise brilliant guy, accused Obama of "already going after guns again" on Facebook. I asked where this was happening and never received a reply.

Throw in a vampire, a heaving bosom, and you've got a romance novel. Talk about overwrought, overwritten, over the top punditry; this writer has real talent. I imagine she is tiresome in person, a tea drinking, ex-pat with a posse of cats named 'Tinkers" and "Cleopatra".

Weaver95: CygnusDarius: I don't get it. Even the 2008 elections weren't that bad... Why is this shiatstorm this powerful?.

that's a good question. my guess? the GOP internal polls showed a crushing defeat for Obama. when Obama instead won by a landslide margin, that shook the pillars of heaven, at least for the Republican party. there's a lot you can infer from such a massive defeat for Romney and NONE of it good for the True Believers in the GOP.

or put more simply, the GOP stepped outside the echo chamber for the first time in 4 years and didn't like reality very much.


They were like kidnap victims blinking in the sunlight, released after years of captivity in someone's basement.

Delay: abb3w: I suspect Virginia could be swung back red, IF the GOP give up the pants-on-head crazy levels of conservatism; stop trying to push so much to the insane hard right on abortion, but fight hard to preserve the status quo on it a little longer. That might be enough for Ohio and Florida, also. The short-term difficulty with this approach would seem to be that the crazies appear unwilling to back down the slightest from abject ideological purity.

Colorado was the "tipping point" state. This is the problem for the Republicans going forward. Even if Romney had won Virginia AND Ohio AND Florida, given his other victories, he would have lost the election.

The crazies gave the Republicans most of their state victories in 2012. Republicans can't give up on their Christian right stands on pro-choice, civil rights, and other socially conservative policies. The Republicans are not financially conservative. They really, really want tax cuts for the rich, no matter what it does to the deficit. How is that financial conservatism? For better or worse Republicans are the socially conservative party.

Were the Republicans to abandon abject ideological purity, they would lose to the next George Wallace who could again come from the Democratic party. If they abandon tax cuts for the rich, they lose their multinational corporations support. If they abandon invading on Iran, they lose their corporate support.

If I were a Republican, I would point out the only choice is to abandon the Christian right agenda, abandon the neo-con agenda, abandon the trickle-down corporate agenda and return to being the party of financial conservatism. Period.

Klavan also wanted conservatives to move big into "the entertainment industry," but not by actually creating art that normal people want to see: "We don't need more conservative artists," he insisted. "We need an infrastructure to support them: more funding, more distribution, sympathetic review venues, grants and awards for arts that speak the truth out loud."

I fully agree with this. I would love to see (and be a part of) more conservative artistic endeavors. Theater, dance, opera, musicals etc are a fantastic mode of expression and it's a fact that there is a real shortage of conservative voices in those art forms. Forms that were created to express ideas and emotions may be just what the right wing need. And if they are willing to explore (as well as fund them) we will all be better for it. 

I am shocked to see this idea floated.

If you were a Republican and you tried such a course, the crony capitalist money would flood out buying all the ads it took to convince the evangelicals to vote en mass for your teabagger primary opponent. While the primary system is where US democracy fails, I still don't think it fails enough to change without a changed Republican base.

I think the election was over when, despite being the inevitable nominee, Romney had been denounced as a "vulture capitalist" by his opponents in the GOP primary. It wasn't the liberal media that brought him down, it was ads from his fellow Republicans, the ones who, despite not having a shot to win, did their best to destroy Romney.

nekom: Delay: On the other hand, New Hampshire, Nevada and Colorado are harbingers of times to come. Nevada and Colorado have rapidly increasing Latino populations. Colorado's Latino population has grown 42 percent in 12 years, helping to transform once-reliable Republican areas into swing counties now leaning toward Democrats. Add Florida's 29 electoral votes due to a lot of extremely angry Black and Latino voters who understand their voting rights were being screwed over by Republicans in 2012 and you don't see much hope for a party whose one consistent message has been "more money for the rich."

Those changing demographics are going to force BOTH parties to change. The problem is, the Democrats seem far more open to change, as noted with Obama becoming the first sitting President to state that homosexuals ought to be allowed to marry, and subsequently the first President elected after making such a statement. He himself stated that his position had 'evolved'. Now maybe he did some sincere soul searching, or maybe his pollsters think that was to his political advantage to say, either way the end result is the same. To be fair, the GOP bandwagon APPEARS to be reconsidering their stance on immigration and other issues that effect Latino voters, only time will tell if they follow through with that, or even if they do if they will win back anyone.


You forgot to note the most important evidence of Democratic "openness" -- that fact that the Democrats nominated Obama in the first place. And the best evidence of "changing demographics" is that he won. Twice.

Which is funny, because already I've seen the right pondering: "How can we get the Hispanic vote? How do we tailor our message to blacks?" And someone--I think it was that idiot Limbaugh--was griping that they HAVE blacks and Hispanics in the party (Condi Rice, some Cuban mayor or other). It has yet to occur to them that just having a few token n*ggers and Mexicans in the room doesn't mean your party's message is attractive to minority voters. It means they're going to have to change their stance on both legal and illegal immigration; they're going to have to change position on things like affirmative action and public schools; they're going to have to get out and actually understand what poor voters of ALL races want and need from their elected officials.

Which is scary for them, because as I've said, poor whites actually have more in common with poor minorities than they do with rich whites; and if they ever learned that this country would now and forever shift hard left and nothing would stop it. It's why the white upper class encouraged a racial split in the first place, back in the 1700's, and why the GOP encourages it now. But if the Republicans want to regain their old place in the political scene, they better find a way to accommodate other races and classes, or they're going to be out on the fringes, even more than they are now.

They talk about how much they love Colin Powell and Condi Rice, but neither would be viable in the primaries because they're both pro-choice.

They used to talk about how much they loved Alan Keyes, but even though he's stridently pro-life, he never made it about the 5% mark in any of the numerous primaries he ran in back in the day.

Conspiracies of presidents-turned-tyrants are nothing new, but before Glenn Beck came along, the wingnut theorists were never part of any political mainstream.

I wonder if Roger Ailes is starting to regret his strategy.
