CygnusDarius: MFAWG: That socially conservative agenda is appealing to blacks, Latinos, and Asian

And ladyparts.

/I want to appeal to ladyparts, damn it


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.

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


It's because they believe that they are right no matter what. So when they lose they pout, cry, point fingers and hurl insults
at everything and everyone but themselves as the root cause of their failure.

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.

Some of it, but less so than you might think. Its appeal appears largely tied to religion, and younger cohorts in all three ethnic groups are increasingly likely to be irreligious.

hubiestubert: Hey, last election I was promised that I'd be in a FEMA camp by now, with ACORN workers administering the camps. And I was promised a lovely jailer who would make my life of drudgery for the masses seem a joy in comparison to the toils I would be forced to perform for her.

When my FEMA trailer gets here, I'll believe in the DOOM that is being bandied about...


I was promised Bush would claim Martial Law before that could occur.

Weaver95: Rwa2play:
They're getting to the point where most of sane America will just ignore them and leave in the cave or somethin'.

so far i'm seeing/hearing two things from the GOP pundits:

1. they lost because they fought a clean campaign and the Democrats were mean vile sub-humans who fought dirty.
2. there is NOTHING WRONG with the GOP agenda and changing the GOP social policy goals is off the table. in fact, the Republicans should move FURTHER to the right because they need to be more conservative in order to win in 2014.


Is there any place we can get a Wordmap of the blogs post election?

And Clinton before him, and Bush Sr. before him.

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.
